This white paper is a business briefing for C-Level Executives on how integrating a range of technologies - including unified communications, service oriented architecture, virtualization and cloud computing - can transform the productivity and profitability of large enterprises.
End-user expectations and high levels of performance against Service Level Agreements (SLAs) must be achieved or organizations risk the loss of business. This paper details key capabilities needed for successful end-user monitoring and provides critical considerations for delivering a successful end-user experience.
In the financial services industry (FSI), high-performance compute infrastructure is not optional; it’s a prerequisite for survival. No other industry generates more data, and few face the combination of challenges that financial services does: a rapidly changing competitive landscape, a complex regulatory environment, tightening margin pressure, exponential data growth, and demanding performance service-level agreements (SLAs).

Slash costs and double performance with HPE 3PAR StoreServ All-flash arrays. Now you no longer need to choose which apps to take to flash; take them all and you won’t regret it. We deliver maximum performance, highest availability, Tier-1 data services, ease of management, and robust data protection at the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) on the market when you engage with HPE Storage Consulting to provide an end-to-end all-flash solution.
Protecting your business-critical applications without impacting performance is proving ever more challenging in the face of unrelenting data growth, stringent recovery service level agreements (SLAs) and increasingly virtualized environments. Traditional approaches to data protection are unable to cost-effectively deliver the end-to-end availability and protection that your applications and hypervisors demand. A faster, easier, more efficient, and reliable way to protect data is needed.
This paper provides information on how CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) delivers the essential capabilities needed to help you proactively monitor and manage alarms, performance and SLAs across even the most dynamic and complex environments.

How to effectively troubleshoot your VDI deployment Virtual desktop infrastructure has come a long way since the first steps were taken a decade ago to run desktop workloads in the data center.
While more pervasive today, VDI technologies are latency-sensitive, and wholly dependent on the network. Complaints of poor end-user experience persist, especially over the WAN at branch offices where bandwidth constraints and latency delays are common.
But there is a way to ensure consistent and reliable VDI performance to deliver:
Enhanced planning and control
Read this brief to learn how the Riverbed® Cascade® application-aware network performance management (NPM) solution unlocks VDI visibility.
This paper, "Workload Automation – From Application Development to Digital Service Delivery," describes how a workload automation solution can eliminate the manual processes developers now use to define batch workflows and communicate them to schedulers.By extending the use of workload automation to developers, organizations can implement applications faster, slash costs, and increase service quality.

Kim Komando, “America’s Digital Goddess,” is a leading radio host and web entrepreneur. Every month her video-taped three-hour weekly radio show adds 2.8 TB of video content to its extensive playback library. Switching from their current storage solution, a combination of NAS Arrays and Tape Drives, to Wasabi not only generated huge savings it was simpler and faster. Plus, since Cloudberry works seamlessly with Wasabi, the show also enjoys efficient and cost-effective remote data protection. In this Case Study read in detail how the ‘Kim Komando Show’ made the transition to next generation cloud storage.
The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.

Every business day, corporate campuses across the country function like small cities requiring highly specialized facilities and logistics management services. This paper will explore effective and efficient Corporate Campus Logistics Services to ensure the efficient flow of materials and people at large multi-building office campuses serving thousands of employees. Corporate facilities, real estate management, logistics and procurement teams as well as commercial real estate management companies are charged with sourcing the services that are the underpinnings of these mega-campuses. It’s an effort that spans a wide range—coordinating the receipt and distribution of supplies, equipment and packages; safely transporting thousands of employees as well as suppliers and contractors to locations within the campus; tracking and warehousing countless materials to support daily planned and unplanned workplace needs. Learn more about lowering costs, streamlining operational efficiency and gaining high employee satisfaction.
This paper will explore the potential of applying business performance management (BPM) principles to advance document performance management (DPM) in a way that enables organizations to reduce costs; better manage documents as vital strategic, ?nancial and information assets; and secure positive returns on investments from outsourcing. An example of this approach — spotlighted later in this paper — is MAX, a document performance management system that enables companies to more effectively manage their document processes and outsourcing service providers.
Organizations don’t know what’s going on inside their networks, and that’s costing them real money. Deploying an intelligent recording fabric with guaranteed 100% packet capture, accuracy, and storage is fundamental to solving the problem. But how do you embrace the new paradigm? To get started, create a list of the system criteria that are mandatory to delivering reliable and complete visibility information to your engineers, so you can be sure their decision-making is on target.
The impact of network performance problems on worker productivity has become a serious business risk. To mitigate it, organizations need to strategically embrace a network recording infrastructure that provides them with accurate, network-wide visibility. Only accurate visibility will empower them to slash maximum and mean response and repair times and keep network-reliant business applications and processes running.
