The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.

For some, having a Managed Service Provider (MSP) manage your workloads on cloud infrastructure requires strong justification internally and assistance around presenting an alternative view to a DIY approach. The physical costs are a bit easier to identify but what about the human costs - your 'hard to retain' IT talent that you want focused on evolving the business strategy rather than the heavy lifting a move to the cloud requires.
To help you justify a MSP solution to your stakeholders and support your internal business case for the associated human cost of a move to the cloud, download our comparison tool that outlines:
• Considerations - the motivations around a move to the cloud
• Associated tasks/actions required to complete a move to the cloud - a comprehensive and direct comparative view of all tasks that IT are responsible for in a DIY v. MSP approach
• Minimum Cost Savings - Re-platform and run costs compared as well as a comparison of the total IT department time required
In the modern digital age, traditional
barriers to entry and time to market have
fallen. Agile businesses can turn an idea into
an app, host it in the cloud, and quickly deliver
it to millions of customers on their chosen
devices and platforms. In comparison,
many larger enterprises miss new business
opportunities because they’re mired in
managing complex, legacy infrastructure,
inefficient cross-functional workflow and
approval processes, and lengthy audit
and compliance requirements.
Lithium-ion battery prices have decreased
over the years and are now becoming a viable option for UPS applications. This paper
provides a brief overview of li-ion batteries in
comparison to VRLA batteries for singlephase UPS applications. A 10-year total
cost of ownership (TCO) analysis is also
provided showing li-ion is 53% less than
VRLA despite their capital cost premium. A
sensitivity analysis reveals the TCO drivers.

Compiling a cloud services comparison is a daunting task in the rapidlyevolving cloud environment. There are thousands of cloud services,
dozens of cloud service providers, and numerous Infrastructure-as-aService (IaaS) providers offering pay-as-you-go pricing models—each one
frequently changing and upgrading their portfolios.
We have chosen to limit our cloud services comparison to the top three
IaaS providers providing service in the Western Hemisphere—Amazon
Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform
(GCP)—because, not only are these the IaaS providers most organizations
are familiar with, they are also the IaaS providers whose services most
organizations are likely to compare.
This eBook provides an introduction to the range of services offered by
the leading cloud service providers, information on regions and availability
zones, a breakdown of cloud storage services, and more, to help inform
you on your multicloud journey.
