As mobile computing becomes an increasingly important technology, the need for robust, reliable wireless networks is growing. In addition to enterprise-issued devices, users are bringing their own tablets and smartphones and demanding access to IT resources. Organizations need a wireless infrastructure that can support these demands.
Our research shows that in addition to mobile demands, aging hardware is driving many organizations' wireless upgrade plans. Download this white paper to read more about the research.
This evolving technology promises faster deployment, lower costs and improved IT staff productivity.
Hyperconverged data centers were once a niche technology that mostly appealed to organizations with specialized needs, such as streamlining the management of small and branch offices. Today, many enterprises are now recognizing the value of transitioning their conventional data centers into hyperconverged facilities.
Gartner reports that by 2018 hyperconverged integrated systems will represent as much as 35 percent of total converged infrastructure shipments by revenue, up from a low single-digit base in 2015. Download this white paper to learn more!

Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.

The businesses that thrive amid fluctuating technology demands are
not only keeping a finger on the pulse of current trends, they have
the infrastructure in place to handle whatever changes might come.
And they’re doing so by treating their data centers as a strategic
asset—a hub from which providers and performance can all stem.
Are you ready for what’s next? According to analyst forecasts and
IT executives, the five key trends affecting our state of technology
are mobility, consumer technology, cloud services, hyperdigitization
and globalization. In the following pages, you’ll learn how these
trends are affecting current networks, and why a strategic data
center is key to not only surviving, but thriving, today and in the future.

Digital transformation is “the use of technology to radically improve performance or (business) reach. But for digital-native businesses that have never needed to make that shift — e-commerce, social media, web-based services — it involves a sharpening of that focus
combined with an ongoing evolution of process and infrastructure.
In this Solution Profile, we will concentrate on the importance of optimizing data protection for evolving virtual networks, and on working with a trusted partner. Virtualization technology works across all sizes of business to reduce costs, control management overhead, and increase flexibility. However, virtualization also requires that companies adapt their traditional backup and data protection practices to suit the rapidly changing virtualization infrastructure.
