Documents are an integral component to the successful operation of an organization. Whether in hardcopy or digital form, they enable the communication, transaction, and recording of business-critical information.
To ensure documents are used effectively, organizations are encouraged to continually evaluate and improve surrounding workflows. This may involve automating elements of document creation, securing the transfer and storage of information, and/or simplifying the retrieval of records and the data contained within. These types of enhancements can save time, money, and frustration.
This white paper will discuss top trends and requirements in the optimization of document-related business processes as well as general technology infrastructures for document management. It will also address how some office technology vendors have reacted to these trends to guide their design and development of products, solutions, and services.
To meet the challenges of managing such a complex environment, IT teams need an enterprise-ready cloud management platform that can support multivendor environments, automate application and service delivery, and facilitate operations and governance. VMware provides an enterprise-ready cloud management platform that delivers the industry’s most complete solution for managing a heterogeneous, hybrid cloud, and supports cloud management requirements across Day 1 and Day 2 operations for compute, storage, network and application level resources. The VMware solution is in use today across a wide range of industries and use cases, delivering benefits such as faster provisioning, optimized IT operations, and lower capital spending.

Semiconductors run and connect today’s technology-driven world, powering all the electronic systems and products around us. Critical to communication, entertainment, work, medical diagnoses, travel, socializing, and making new discoveries, these specialized chips are ubiquitous. And chip designs grow ever more sophisticated in order to power new generations of devices, computers, the Internet, and the cloud. To enable new applications and use cases – like the Internet of Things – semiconductor vendors have continually pushed the boundaries of their designs to accommodate new fabrication processes that make chips smaller, more power efficient (to make personal devices last longer), and able to pack more gates into smaller dies (to make them more powerful).
Digital technology has arguably been the biggest disruptor for individuals and organisations in the last twenty years. It has changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we spend our time and how we develop and grow our businesses. For businesses, digital has not just created new products and services, but fundamentally shifted business models and the dynamic between business and customer, business and supplier, business and employee. It has become a significant force for value and revenue creation, but one that brings with it many challenges.
Over time, hybrid cloud will increasingly become the mainstream deployment model for IT infrastructure. Flash storage brings with it many benefits necessary in hybrid cloud environments, and IDC already views it as a requirement for enterprise workloads that have any performance sensitivity. This IDC white paper discusses the state of enterprise storage with respect to the evolving cloud storage market, explains why flash storage is needed in these environments, and then discusses what Pure Storage, a leading all-flash array vendor, brings to the table in this area. The document concludes with a short service provider case study.
Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.
This paper addresses the many Exchange, SQL Server, and SharePoint implementations running on inefficient storage infrastructures, limiting scalability and complicating what should be fairly simple storage management tasks.
Forward-looking enterprises know there's more to big data than strong and managing large volumes of information. Big data presents an opportunity to leverage analytics and experiment with all available data to derive value never before possible with traditional business intelligence and data warehouse platforms. Through a modern, big data platform that facilitates self-service and collaborative analytics across all data, organizations become more agile and are able to innovate in new ways.
While the concept of big data is nothing new, the tools and technology and now in place for companies of all types and sizes to take full advantage. Enterprises in industries such as media, entertainment, and research and development have long been dealing with data in large volumes and unstructured formats - data that changes in near real time. However, extracting meaning from this data has been prohibitive, often requiring custom-built, expensive technology. Now, thanks to advancements in storage and analytics, all organizations can leverage big data to gain the insight needed to make their businesses more agile, innovative, and competitive.
Competitive enterprises that embark on big data strategies do so with the expectation that their businesses will transform. They don't just want answers from the data they collect and analyze, they want results. Be it with small, fledgling trials or large, cross-functional efforts, these enterprises want to see clearly how big data can make a difference - with their customers, their processes, their bottom lines and, most important, with growing the business.
"Storage system architectures are moving away from monolithic scale-up approaches and adopting scale-out storage – providing a powerful and flexible way to respond to the inevitable data growth and data management challenges in today’s environments. With extensive data growth demands, there needs to be an increase in the levels of storage and application availability, performance, and scalability.
Access this technical report that provides an overview of NetApp clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 and shows how it incorporates industry-leading unified architecture, non-disruptive operations, proven storage efficiency, and seamless scalability."
