This latest evolution in wireless networking offers faster wireless data transmission speeds, vastly superior coverage and support for a new generation of mobile applications and services.
IT teams are working harder than ever in the face of massive data growth, complex operations, and time and budget constraints. Access this white paper to discover an operating system that addresses the limitations of traditional approaches to IT, removing IT constraints and allowing you to respond to business demands more readily.
There has been no shortage of high profile recalls over the past several years. Suppliers are being required to provide more robust quality management systems, provide better real-time visablity into manufacturing data, and may even be held accountable for additional charge-back and warranty claims. Take a next generation approach to quality management.
This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

Data is critical to the entertainment industry and not taking advantage of it can keep you from creating great experiences and delivering the right content to partners. And, more than that, it can make it hard for you to optimize operations, get insight into the content’s value and stay ahead of the many changes in how content is created, consumed and monetized.
However, even with the new digital tools in production, there are many challenges to making use of this data. The effort involved can take time and resources away from film production, introduce security risks, and leave key data inaccessible to those that need it.
In this paper, we review:
• The current state of production data
• The challenges the entertainment industry is facing in making use of data
• A new “Smart Content” approach that is helping industry pioneers to reduce complexity on the set, drive reporting, and enable them to stay ahead of market changes

As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.
For many IT organizations that have implemented desktop virtualization, a game-changing decision is on the horizon. New options are now available that can significantly simplify desktop management – and at the same time eliminate trade-offs between performance and cost. Download this Datamation whitepaper to learn about the options IT now has to unify desktop virtualization and application delivery under one platform, reducing costs and improving user experience with VMware® Horizon®.
"Although they have been around for several years, virtual desktop and application virtualization solutions have not yet gone mainstream in most enterprises. That’s bound to change, however, given advances in the technologies and the increasing need to deliver a great computing experience to mobile device users.
Read this Executive Viewpoint Q&A with VMware Senior VP and General Manager of Desktops Sumit Dhawan, as he explains why it’s time to revisit virtual desktop and application virtualization technologies. "
Today’s IT organizations simply cannot afford to continue to manage the end user environment with an out-of-date PC-centric approach to systems management.

In businesses and organizations across the world, rooms once humming with wires, black boxes and blinking lights now sit empty. In a lonely phone closet, there’s only dust, a single lonely terminal, or perhaps a foosball table where IT pros can let off steam.
The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.
When Netflix had a tough time integrating their existing single sign-on solution with their core business applications, they looked to Google and Ping to help them implement a standards-based approach.

With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
• Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
• Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
• Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system

The time has come for enterprise risk management to
change. Mobile devices have become core to our personal

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those
running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows
Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile
devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs.
At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an
interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a
keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps
that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing,
code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In
certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running
Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a
smartphone or tablet.

Although many of the same elements of risk that affect PCs also apply to mobile endpoints, simply extending current PC security controls to your mobile feet is ineffective.
Enterprise risk management needs to evolve to address mobile risks, and security professionals must architect mobile specifc security. To encourage this evolution, Lookout developed the Mobile Risk Matrix. Its purpose is to help security organizations understand the spectrum of risk on mobile devices and to provide data that demonstrates the prevalence of mobile risk.
Software delivery processes and systems, and the people involved with them, are under increasing pressure. Sometimes it’s digital transformation, other times it’s simply the challenge of keeping up with the demands created by ever more dynamic markets and an escalating pace of change. None of this is news, but is does provide an important backdrop to the discussion of how software delivery needs to evolve, especially given that traditional methods and approaches were never designed to deal with the fastmoving and unpredictable environment you are probably working in today.
