Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.
Hewlett-Packard (HP) is unique in this EMA Radar in its ability to combine two threads – a single analytic overlay as embodied in its Service Health Analyzer (SHA) product, and a broader suite solution optimized for HP to participate in all three use cases here with maximum functional impact. This is not entirely a black-and-white situation, as SHA does leverage and currently largely depends on integration with HP Business Service Management 9.1, which is itself a suite. But SHA can assimilate other third-party sources, checks out brilliantly in early-phase deployments in terms of time-to-value and analytic power, and is the lead reason for HP’s strong Value Leader showing in technical performance management.
As the networks become ever more essential to business processes, they are also increasing rapidly in size and complexity. Many factors can affect network availability and performance—increasing traffic, configuration problems, failed network elements, changes, and more. Since not all of these problems are hard failures, managing the network to detect and correct business-impacting problems requires new tools, strategies, and initiatives. To deliver the availability and performance business demands, network management teams need to optimize fault management and ensure availability, unify fault and performance management, automate change and configuration management to ensure compliance, and automate IT processes. This integrated approach is called Automated Network Management (ANM).
Traditional project management techniques are not working as well as expected. According to research, an average organization has at least $74 million USD (yearly) in at-risk projects. And, even when projects are executed successfully, all too often they still fail to deliver business benefits.
So, how do you get started? How do you prioritize which issues to address first? What are the risks and potential rewards? What can you do yourself and where can you need help?
This paper helps you answer those questions. It provides important insights into the root causes of project failures and misalignment with business unit expectations, along with possible solutions. It illustrates the path to optimized project and portfolio management from four different starting points, and provides step-by-step advice to help you reach new milestones quickly. It is intended to help you make the transition from managing IT projects to managing business outcomes.
