This assessment shows that enterprises adopt Red Hat Fuse because they believe in a community-based open source approach to integration for modernizing their integration infrastructure that delivers strong ROI. For these organizations, Fuse was part of a larger digital transformation initiative and was also used to modernize integration.
IDC interviewed organizations using Fuse to integrate important business applications across their heterogeneous IT environments. These Red Hat customers reported that Fuse has enabled them to complete substantially more integrations at a higher quality level, thereby supporting their efforts to deliver timely and functional applications and digital services. Efficiencies in application integration with Fuse have generated significant value for study participants, which IDC quantifies at an average value of $75,453 per application integrated per year ($985,600 per organization). They have attained this value by: » Enabling more efficient and effectiv
Today, ERP is a cornerstone of many organisations’ tech infrastructure. Yet many of the solutions in play are legacy products, decades old and designed for an entirely different business landscape.
With industry leaders expressing concern that out-of-date ERP solutions have now become an impediment to competitive business, IDC set out to uncover what exactly modern companies need from their ERP systems, and why SAP S/4Hana seems so well placed to deliver.

Your mobile workforce needs devices that are both versatile and allow for higher productivity. Increasingly, that’s 2-in-1 devices, such as convertible notebooks or detachable tablets. IDC research shows that using Dell 2-in-1 devices, powered by Intel® processors, made people more productive while being less physically demanding and requiring less effort.
Download the executive summary for highlights of the IDC study and to find out why people prefer using 2-in-1 devices over traditional laptops.

IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?

Die Recherchen von IDC haben ergeben, dass in den nächsten Jahren die meisten IT-Workloads in die Cloud verschoben werden. Doch neben all den positiven Berichten über Unternehmen, die in die Cloud umziehen, gibt es auch Unternehmen, die sich noch immer fragen, ob ein solcher Wechsel wirklich kosteneffizient ist und welche Vorteile sich aus einem solchen ergeben. Während die Antworten auf solche Fragen von Workload zu Workload variieren, gibt es ein Element, das besondere Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht: das Data-Warehouse.
La plupart des entreprises ont investi considérablement dans le stockage de leurs données, avec un coût de gestion continu en termes de licences logicielles, frais de maintenance, coûts opérationnels et matériel. Est-il plus judicieux d'opter pour une solution cloud ? Quels en sont les coûts et les avantages ? En combien de temps un tel choix est-il rentabilisé?
Découvrez, dans ce document, la synthèse de l’enquête IDC sur le retour d'expérience de 8 entreprises utilisant Amazon Redshift.
IT is in the midst of one of its major transformations. IDC has characterized this paradigm shift as the “third platform,” driven by innovations in cloud, big data, mobility and social technologies. Progressive enterprises are seeking to leverage third-platform technologies to create new business opportunities and competitive differentiation through new products and services, new business models and new ways of engaging customers.
Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.
The latest generation of PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors can deliver differentiated business agility over older-generation infrastructure. IDC asserted that updating servers can help businesses deploy applications up to 22 percent faster and improve application performance up to 29 percent over outdated infrastructure.
Intel Inside®. New Possibilities Outside.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.
Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.

Die Vernetzung und der Schutz von Unternehmen im Zuge einer immer weitergehenden
dezentralen Streuung der Mitarbeiter, die Zugriff auf Ressourcen innerhalb und außerhalb
des Unternehmensnetzwerks benötigten, führt zu einer neuen Schwerpunktsetzung auf
betriebliche Effizienz und wirksamen Schutz. Während die fundamentalen Anliegen der
Vertraulichkeit, Integrität und Verfügbarkeit von Daten unverändert bestehen bleiben,
steigen die Kosten und potentiellen Schäden für Unternehmen immer weiter an, was die
Rolle der Führungsebene und der Sicherheitsfachleute komplexer macht als je zuvor. Eine
vor Kurzem von IDC durchgeführte Befragung von CISOs hat ergeben, dass die folgenden
fünf Szenarien am meisten Besorgnis erregen:
• Preisgabe vertraulicher Informationen auf der Titelseite bedeutender
Veröffentlichungen (WSJ etc.)
• Abfluss von 50 % der HR-Mitarbeiterdaten
• IT-Systeme als Angriffsvektor gegen Partner
• Gezielte Angriffe

Connecting and protecting organizations as their people disperse to more locations
and need access to resources inside and outside the enterprise are driving a renewed
focus on operational efficiency and security efficacy. While the fundamental concerns of
confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility are unchanged, the cost and potential losses to
organizations continue to increase, making the role of C-level infrastructure and security
executives more complex than ever before. A recent IDC survey of CISOs ranked the
following as the top 5 scenarios keeping them up at night:
• Breach disclosure on the front page of WSJ and so forth
• Leak of 50% of employee HR records
• IT systems to be a source of major attack against partner
• Target-style breach
• Leak of 10% of PHI/PII customer records
After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an
inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a
source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls
the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine
into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’
digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require
organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external
environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new
business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational
Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as
businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs,
systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some
hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning
require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can
adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e

IT has the opportunity to completely redefine the role networking plays in the business. But that requires executing on a vision that continuously aligns the network to ever-changing business needs. Fortunately, the right network architectures and supporting technologies required to deliver on that vision are rapidly becoming available. Automation, programmability, self-protecting, and self-healing capabilities move IT away from “keeping the lights on” and provide more time and opportunity to serve as a strategic partner to business initiatives across functional areas.
