IT organizations struggle with numerous challenges — hybrid environments, lack of visibility during cloud migration, multiple infrastructure monitoring tools, and reliance on manual processes. Yet according to a 2018 global survey, less than half of IT practitioners are confident they can ensure performance and system availability with their current toolset.
As a Splunk customer, you understand the power of running your monitoring and logging environment in a machine data platform. Are you utilizing your machine data platform to effectively run APM, infrastructure monitoring and Network performance monitoring and diagnostics?
This guide outlines the 8 biggest mistakes IT practitioners make and provides solutions, key takeaways and real-world examples to help you improve IT monitoring and troubleshooting in your organization.

With an industry-wide average 58% of spend going towards services procurement, having a rock-solid strategy and roadmap in place is vital. A lot of practitioners hear the term “services procurement” and immediately think “contingent labor” or “vendor managed services.” The truth is a lot broader and deeper than that.
Digital transformation initiatives and the need for innovation are causing enterprises to rethink their IT landscapes including business-to-business (B2B) integration. Modern B2B integration is critical for enabling enterprises to achieve goals like increasing revenue, speeding up time to market, and improving efficiencies because these outcomes are dependent on having a successful business network. B2B practitioners have two goals — enable critical business initiatives and control costs — and cloud-based B2B services have been successful in helping enterprises achieve both goals.
IDC interviewed eight IBM clients to understand how their use of IBM Sterling B2B Integration Services, part of the IBM B2B Cloud Services portfolio, has impacted their operations and businesses.

DevOps (short for development and operations), like most
new approaches, is only a buzzword for many people.
Everyone talks about it, but not everyone knows what it is.
In broad terms, DevOps is an approach based on lean and agile
principles in which business owners and the development, operations,
and quality assurance departments collaborate to deliver
software in a continuous manner that enables the business to
more quickly seize market opportunities and reduce the time
to include customer feedback. Indeed, enterprise applications are
so diverse and composed of multiple technologies, databases,
end-user devices, and so on, that only a DevOps approach will be
successful when dealing with these complexities. Opinions differ
on how to use it, however.
Some people say that DevOps is for practitioners only; others say
that it revolves around the cloud. IBM takes a broad and holistic
view and sees DevOps as a business-driven software delivery
approach — an approach that takes a new or en
Healthcare technologies have proven their worth for practitioners and facilities in increasing the quality of patient care while saving time and streamlining operations.
In some cases, however, the benefits of these technologies are outweighed by their impact on the network, slowing network performance sometimes to the point of ineffectiveness.Software-defined networking can be the bridge to help healthcare providers update their networks and avoid disruption. SDN helps organizations save money on networking infrastructure, reduces the complexity of managing networks, enhances security through added intelligence and simplifies compliance, among other benefits.
1. Meet the new healthcare consumer
The consumerization of healthcare, major demographic shifts, and the migration
to mobile and social media are tilting the balance of power away from traditional
healthcare marketers and into the hands of potential patients.
2. Online reputation is the new competitive frontier for marketers
Healthcare brands are no longer controlled by marketers. Patient feedback about
doctors and facilities online is leading to total market transparency for healthcare
consumers. CG-CAHPS surveys only go so far in providing social proof.
3. Healthcare branding is becoming hyper-local
In the search for providers, all branding is local – at the level of individual
practitioners and facilities. Proliferating points of presence on the web make this
a challenge that requires technology. But healthcare marketers who scale online
review volume and quality will be rewarded with higher search visibility.
4. Business implications

Recognize these six misconceptions that can harm your success.
Don’t be “fuzzy” about interoperability and sharing data. Misinformation abounds. Get the straight scoop and the right start to your interoperability plan. Robust interoperability is critical to sustain and grow your organization. It’s the top priority of the Office of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology (ONC). It should be a high priority for you too.
Many HR leaders praise the employee
experience (EX) as the holy grail of their
organizational initiatives, but things
are changing. What if this view only
captures a small fraction of — ironically
— the employee experience?
What if there were a broader understanding of
the employee’s career? You would be able to see
through employees’ eyes why they joined your
company, what they hope to do in life and where
they’re going. Then you could help them position
themselves in your company to achieve their
goals as well as yours.
You would both win.
We’ve written about the employee experience in the
past, how creating great experiences and providing

employee experience. Now we’re expanding

"To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.
