Restaurants are a top choice for a teen’s first job. In fact, minors comprise almost a third of the hospitality workforce. But employing such a prominent population isn’t always easy. Managers need to comply with labor laws that are regional in nature and constantly changing. They also need to contend with teens’ school schedules, which are always in flux. How’s a manager supposed to keep up?
Today’s financial services organizations recognize that success starts with strong relationships built on trust and transparency.

As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational
efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the
importance of a well-architected framework. This
framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is wellintended,
secure, and compliant, but is not exactly
easy to achieve.
Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular--Security
and Cost Optimization--are the most
difficult to get right. This is partially because while
advanced tooling is required to manage cloud
complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying,
and operating these tools is costly and burdensome.
Without optimizing your environment for these two
pillars, you are preventing your organization from
scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that
are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any
benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place.
AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework,
which will walk you through common missteps and
how to get it right.

ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage.
Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.

This best practices guide will show you how to lay the foundation for an efficient, easy-to-manage storage environment.
Information technology is undergoing rapid change as organizations of all types begin to embrace the idea of
moving computing infrastructure from on-premises to the cloud. It is easy to understand why the cloud has taken
off faster than any technology phenomenon in recent memory. The cloud has the potential to reduce total cost of
ownership (TCO) while enabling quicker responses to fast-moving markets and ever-changing customer needs.
“Being able to flex your compute resources based on changes in volume and customer demand increases agility,
making going to the cloud a very attractive proposition for our customers,” says Brian Johnston, chief technology
officer for QTS in Overland Park, Kansas, a provider of data center solutions and fully managed services.
