Gartner clients often ask for a comparison of BMC and ServiceNow as viable strategic partners in the ITSSM tool space. Both vendors provide strong ITSSM offerings and benefit from excellent global brand recognition, but the similarities end there. Outside of ITSSM, BMC and ServiceNow are two different companies with two different strategic road maps. Choosing between BMC and ServiceNow requires IT organizations to determine how value will be gained beyond the use of their ITSSM offerings.
"Although many IT professionals believe that using self-signed SSL certificates can help their organizations lower security costs, the real numbers tell a different story. From data center infrastructure and physical security, to the hardware and software required, to the personnel needed to manage the certificate lifecycle, the true costs of self-signed SSL security can become very expensive, very fast.
This paper explores the true total cost of ownership (TCO) for self-signed SSL certificates, including a side-by-side comparison of a self-signed architecture versus working with a third-party SSL vendor. Before a company decides to use self-signed certificates, these issues deserve careful consideration."
Midsize organizations strive for success. Being successful means consistently making smart decisions— including smart technology purchases. Technology should enable a midsize organization to meet the needs of its employees and customers today and also allow the organization to make simple but rewarding changes in the future. Technology must support changes that occur in a business without increasing the risks associated with providing excellent customer service, engaging with suppliers, and conducting many common business processes.

Looking for the right Flash Array for you? Tired of all data being treated the same but want to save time and budget?
Flash storage is helping to address the latency inherent with disk drives, enabling you to virtualize more, and reduce application response times. It's an inescapable fact that the $/GB of flash is much higher than disk drives.
So why do the majority of storage vendors indiscriminately accelerate all data, regardless of its value to your business?
All-flash arrays waste money by storing non-critical data in flash, and hybrid arrays can't control whether mission-critical or non-critical data accesses flash, leading to unpredictable performance. So what do you do to find a solution that addresses both of these issues?
Download now and see NexGen's approach to value-driven data management. Make it simple to control what data is stored in flash and affordably tailor application performance to match your organizations priorities now!
