As cams and digital video become more critical to law enforcement, their success will be in large part dependent on the ability to efficiently store and access that data. In this case study we look at Novus Insight, a leading integrator of managed video storage for law enforcement agencies, and their decision to use Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage. Novus is tasked with helping law enforcement manage the massive volumes of digital video evidence that body and dash cams are creating. Not a simple proposition for these budget and resource constrained public agencies. After surveying the available options Novus found going with Wasabi an easy choice. Wasabi’s revolutionary storage technology allows for an unprecedented combination of speed, affordability and security. It not only brings Novus the instantly scalable cloud solution they need, it dramatically improves performance and economics at the same time. To learn more about how Novus and Wasabi are helping enable better policing through bette
For the past decade Amazon, Google and Microsoft offering comparable service have dominated cloud storage. Armed with revolutionary technology, Wasabi is transforming what technology can be and do. It is bringing low cost and high speed storage to everyone, eliminating vendor lock-in, and complicated tiers and pricing plans. In this white paper we focus on cloud storage pricing, comparing the economics of Wasabi versus the leading cloud storage options.
In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.
Apache Hadoop technology is transforming the economics and dynamics of big data initiatives by supporting new processes and architectures that can help cut costs, increase revenue and create competitive advantage.
Apache Hadoop technology is transforming the economics and dynamics of big data initiatives by supporting new processes and architectures that can help cut costs, increase revenue and create competitive advantage. An effective big data integration solution delivers simplicity, speed, scalability, functionality and governance to produce consumable data.
To cut through this misinformation and develop an adoption plan for your Hadoop big data project, you must follow a best practices approach that takes into account emerging technologies, scalability requirements, and current resources and skill levels.
The economics of employee health & happiness are both frightening and wildly compelling. Companies that seize the Employee Wellness opportunity will win the war for talent and distance themselves from their competition. Wellness is no longer a "nice to have." It's business strategy.
Enterprise data-centers are straining to keep pace with dynamic business demands, as well as to incorporate advanced technologies and architectures that aim to improve infrastructure performance, scale and economics. meeting these requirements, however, often requires a complete rethinking of how data centers are designed and managed. Fortunately, many enterprise IT architects are leading cloud providers have already demonstrated the viability and the benefits of a more modern, software-defined data center. This Nutanix white paper examines eight fundamental steps leading to a more efficient, manageable and scalable data center.
Money makes the world go ‘round, but can you tell your organisation’s “money story”—how it generates revenue and profits, maximises cash flow and steers clear of trouble?

This eBook will cover how different criteria can affect a choice between a cloud or on-premises contact center, including:
• The size of your contact center, and business requirements such as customer journey management
• The location and quantity of contact centers being managed
• The need for scalability, speed of deployment, and maintenance requirements

What if you could use just one platform to detect all types of major financial crimes?
One platform to handle the analytical tasks of fraud detection, including:
Data processing and aggregation
Statistical/mathematical/machine learning modeling
One platform that could successfully reduce complex and time-consuming fraud investigations by combining extremely different domains of knowledge including Business, Economics, Finance, and Law. A platform that can cover payments, credit card transactions, and know your customer (KYC) processes, as well as similar use cases like anti-money laundering (AML), trade surveillance, and crimes such as insurance claims fraud.

Dr. Ron Goetzel of Emory and Thomson Reuters discusses the rising health and productivity-related expenditures that employers face, the top 10 most costly chronic conditions, and the role obesity plays in creating these conditions.
In areas such as sales force automation and customer relationship management, cloud-based computing services have become the norm—and substantially improved the economics, capabilities, and effciencies customers have realized. Today, organizations can enjoy similarly substantial benefits by migrating their IT service management functions to a Software-as-a-Service model. This paper shows how CA Cloud Service Management enables organizations to make the most of this opportunity by providing a service
management solution with a breakthrough in time.

VMware vSAN is enterprise-class, vSphere-native storage that powers more hyper-converged infrastructure solutions than any other vendor. vSAN accelerates and simplifies the data center modernization journey by helping you evolve your infrastructure without risk, reduce TCO through simplified operations and server economics, and scale to tomorrow’s business needs with an agile, cloud-ready platform. As the only vSphere-native storage platform, vSAN naturally extends virtualization to storage, creating a hyperconverged solution that simply works with existing tools, skill sets, software solutions, and server platforms. The result is an agile IT environment ready for dynamic business needs.
The right hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solution can yield tangible financial benefits for an IT organization. This paper explores how HCI powered by VMware vSAN improves an IT department’s financial outlook in terms of both Capital Expense (CapEx) and Operating Expense (OpEx). Its insights are based on comments from real users on IT Central Station.
