The Average Inc. could do quite a lot to improve the ways it uses technology in order to reduce risk, ensuring business continuity, and to cut unnecessary cost. If Average Inc. needs to improve its use and management of its ICT infrastructure, then that means most real companies do as well.

Technology is no longer a nice to have, or a tool for the few. With many organizations now being completely dependent on their IT systems, the need for the IT department to be seen to be responding to the organization's requirements is of critical importance. Business Service Management, or BSM, can help in providing underpinnings to the IT function. This paper looks at how the changing processes and market conditions within an organization can be augmented through the use of a Business Service Management (BSM) approach, creating a flexible and responsive technology infrastructure aimed at supporting a rapidly changing commercial landscape and enabling greater competitiveness in the markets.
When he joined SDBC in May of 2004, SunnyD's Chief Information Officer and Global Controller was faced with a classic build-or-buy decision, although the circumstances were less than typical. Despite the company just being carved out from Procter & Gamble with an experienced management team and a well-known brand name, it was missing a crucial operational element — an entire information technology infrastructure.
In this document, you'll learn to enable the successful execution and completion of IPT Deployment projects through a standardized set of processes and methodologies based upon Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) standards.
ITS technology is a general term. Two common and related forms of ITS communication technology using event stream processing are referred to as vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to-infrastructure (V2X) in the US, and car-to-infrastructure (Car2X) in Europe. The two types of connected-car research and development programs often overlap and can be integrated. Car2X enables vehicle communication with the road transportation infrastructure and provides the ability to send or receive local information about traffic conditions, geo-markers (e.g. to identify pothole locations), road hazards, alerts, safety vehicles, etc. V2V focuses on connected-car technology and the anonymous communication of sensor data continuously transmitted to and from cars. Using event stream processing, this streaming data enables the real-time synthesis of information to communicate what will improve and promote driver safety, reduce crashes, and improve vehicle transportation efficiency.
Preempting enterprise resource planning (ERP) project failure could well become the Holy Grail for organizations seeking to improve their technology infrastructure, organizational efficiency, and competitiveness.
By enabling organizations to centralize desktop deployment, a VDI can help simplify admin and reduce costs while enhancing security and regulatory compliance and increasing IT flexibility and business agility. Don't wait - find out more now.
How long did it take to get a permanent fix for your last network problem? Too long? Even worse, did you fall short of actually getting one? If so, it's not surprising. But because
of network visibility problems, chances are good that your organization is leaking real money in network and business downtime.
With this white paper you will learn valuable information on how to have this problem fixed sooner and maintain better performance from your Network.
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.
An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it?
Use this white paper to figure out how to manage and measure the value and payback of your network and how to increase its benefits.

Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp 2nd Special Edition, describes the many uses and benefits of flash storage technology in the enterprise. From flash-accelerated storage to all-flash arrays, flash technology improves performance and increases reliability in storage infrastructures.
The Staatsbetrieb Sächsische Informatik Dienste (SID) is the German Federal State of Saxony’s central IT service provider. SID supports the state administration with cutting-edge information technology and provides expert advice to its customers on all IT matters. Its brief includes the development, introduction, operation and maintenance of IT processes, planning, operation and administration of the IT infrastructure, and central IT procurement.
SID had been operating Oracle Databases at its datacenters for many years, running on IA64 hardware. However, this older technology had to be replaced for technical and financial reasons, while SID wanted to leverage the project to re-engineer its Oracle Database infrastructure. The project was initially financed and realized for migrating the IT system FÖMISAX (Landeseinheitliche Fördermitteldatenbank des Freistaates Sachsen), the State of Saxony’s subsidies database.
Consolidating data center servers through virtualization is integral to successful IT systems design. Read the white paper and see how IBM PowerVM on POWER7 offers higher ratios of server virtualization than VMware on comparable Intel x86 platforms. This enables superior performance, greater operational savings and improved efficiency.
New business demands and technology trends are changing the role of IT and introducing new challenges to
application availability that yesterday’s data centers were not designed to address. By upgrading to Cisco Nexus®
switches—purpose-built for today’s data center needs—you can:
? Increase performance and scalability to meet the demands of virtualization, cloud computing, and modern
? Radically simplify management and operations
? Quickly adapt infrastructure to align the data center network with the needs of your business applications,
today and in the future
Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners.
Cisco vision for the internet is one that is entering into the next generation. Connecting enterprises through rapid adoption of digital infrastructure: 5X faster than electricity and telephony. The agenda includes:
Understanding the Connected Factory and its benefits to the organization's overall profitability, case studies: reducing costs, increasing quality, and maximizing productivity, the building blocks of an IoT network: unique design considerations for environments with rigid requirements.
Microsoft® will end support for Windows® Server 2003/R2 on July 14, 2015. This can have a dramatic impact on your business, because without any more updates or patches from Microsoft, your organization’s infrastructure will be less stable and secure.
HP can help you to make a smooth migration to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and to private cloud solutions built on HP Converged Infrastructure and Microsoft System Center, HP has created a Microsoft Virtualization and Cloud Center of Excellence.
Delivering high-quality services with greater speed and efficiency is one of the greatest pressures facing your information technology (IT) infrastructure. The rise of computing in the cloud, expansive mobility options, and increasing pressure to boost application performance have added even further complexity - leading to inefficiencies that can limit your opportunity for growth and success. Traditional, siloed IT infrastructures are often too labor intensive, inefficient, and slow to overcome these challenges. Organizations need a converged, cloud-ready, software defined infrastructure to help them meet the evolving demands of their business.
