Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.
Even after more than 30 years, it's easy to see why Excel remains so popular. It's flexible, powerful and irreplaceable - especially in finance and accounting. But how well does it work in FP&A today?
That's the question that Vena and the Association of Finance Professionals set out to answer in this objective research-based guide, Making Excel Work for FP&A. From taking advantage of Excel's full feature set, to adopting FP&A software built around Excel, there's no shortage of ways to get the most out of Excel for your FP&A needs.

CA Technologies recently released version 8.5.1 of its flagship United Infrastructure Management (UIM) platform. The company continues its efforts to make it a powerful contender in the highly competitive and crowded hybrid IT management market. The latest enhancements, and those coming soon in the next release, should help strengthen its position as an intelligent and predictive toolset that enables administrators to quickly – and in some cases proactively – react and remediate performance and capacity anomalies.
IDC's research shows that, worldwide, over 70% of enterprise cloud users currently rely on multiple clouds (public and/or private) to support a wide range of applications and workloads. Efficient management of these resources depends on IT operations and DevOps teams having access to consistent, accurate infrastructure performance monitoring data and reporting that span the full set of on-premise cloud infrastructure and public cloud IaaS services. CA Technologies recently announced new capabilities for CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) that allow the product to more fully address the monitoring needs of complex multicloud infrastructure as part of delivering on CA's vision to fully enable the agile DevOps in the application economy.

Data transfer bottlenecks and unpredictability on the Wide Area Network (WAN) can hurt application performance. In addition, the time required to migrate large volumes of data to and from data centers can be a serious concern to business continuity.
Global DNS performance and availability are critical to user experience. According to Gartner, “DNS is mission-critical to all organizations that connect to the internet. DNS failure or poor performance leads to applications, data and content becoming unavailable, causing user frustration, lost sales and business reputation damage.” But many businesses still rely on a single, often in-house DNS solution that lacks global scale and resiliency.
This white paper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn:
- The critical role DNS plays in the user experience.
- The risks of relying solely on a single DNS solution.
- The added performance and reliability benefits of a high availability DNS architecture with a redundant managed DNS service.
- Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider.

People analytics is increasingly on the agenda for organisations. With the rise of workplace technology allowing leaders to track employees’ performance, productivity and wellbeing, we partnered with the CIPD to survey over 3,000 business professionals to understand how people analytics is being used.
And the results are in, 65% of respondents who work in an organisation with a strong people analytics culture, say their business performance is strong compared to competitors.
As well as outlining the key opportunities leaders can capitalise on, this report covers:
How different professions are using people data
The various types of people data that are being used
How people analytics adds value to organisations
What the future holds for people data
To compete in today’s fast-paced business climate, enterprises need
accurate and frequent sales and customer reports to make real-time
operational decisions about pricing, merchandising and inventory
management. They also require greater agility to respond to business
events as they happen, and more visibility into business activities so
information and systems are optimized for peak efficiency and performance.
By making use of data capture and business intelligence to
integrate and apply data across the enterprise, organizations can capitalize
on emerging opportunities and build a competitive advantage.
The IBM® data replication portfolio is designed to address these issues
through a highly flexible one-stop shop for high-volume, robust, secure
information replication across heterogeneous data stores.
The portfolio leverages real-time data replication to support high
availability, database migration, application consolidation, dynamic
warehousing, master data management (MDM), service
A hardware and software system specifically designed for the database software to optimize database operations, both for performance and administrative simplicity. An environment that supports workload consolidation, thereby reducing the number of physical servers required for the databases in question.
Benefits: Reduced cost and optimal performance.
Managing a large datacenter is a costly, complicated activity for any enterprise, but when that datacenter also includes a number of database servers, and when database performance is critical, those costs and complications can multiply. A recent study from IDC explains simple tips to quantify the value of Oracle Exadata Database Machine for your own business. Discover how to deliver new business applications faster.
Increasing risks and cyber threats make IT security a high priority. Oracle’s SPARC S7, T7, and M7 Servers with always-on memory intrusion protection and comprehensive data encryption secure your data with no performance penalty. Oracle’s Software in Silicon technology and Oracle Solaris protect data in memory from unauthorized access and stop malware before it gets in.
"In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace.
Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data. The task of managing sensitive information while capturing, analyzing, and acting upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical.
Increasing risks and cyber threats make IT security a high priority. Oracle’s SPARC S7, T7, and M7 Servers with always-on memory intrusion protection and comprehensive data encryption secure your data with no performance penalty. Security in silicon features and Oracle Solaris protect data in memory form unauthorized access and stop malware before it gets in."
This ESG Lab review documents the results of recent testing of the Oracle SPARC M7 processor with a focus on in-memory database performance for the real-time enterprise. Leveraging new advanced features like columnar compression and on-ship in-memory query acceleration, ESG Lab compared the in-memory database performance of a SPARC T7 system with a SPARC M7 processor to an x86-based system.
This Edison Group whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this offering to a similar x86 offering.The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are: Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures, SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5, processor, Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security. The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost.
