Now there's an innovative new way to move enterprise applications to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and trade-offs. It's called multi-cloud storage, and it's an insanely simple, reliable, secure way to deploy your enterprise apps in the cloud and also move them between clouds and on-premises infrastructure, with no vendor lock-in. Multi-cloud storage allows you to simplify your infrastructure, meet your service-level agreements, and save a bundle.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
There is no doubt that enterprise cloud is a new and improved IT strategy. Cloud services have proven to improve organizational agility and reduce the burden of IT infrastructure and cost. Moving to the cloud is no longer a question of “if” but “when” and “how.” Most enterprises we interviewed are moving to cloud in phases over time and matching workloads to their perceptions of a vendor’s cloud capabilities that will best support their objectives. Many will require the ability and flexibility to support multivendor cloud and multiple deployment choices (e.g., public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud).

1. Trust and the Modern IT Infrastructure Why you should be concerned about server security (or the lack thereof).
2. End-to-end Server Security How Dell EMC defines end-to-end server security. In this section, we also provide crucial characteristics business and IT leaders can use to classify prospective server vendors.
3. Key Security Criteria for the Modern IT Infrastructure The security questions every IT leader should ask of their server vendor before embarking on an IT transformation.
4. Conclusion & Additional Resources
The objective of this paper is to highlight the Dell EMC comprehensive approach to server security. PowerEdge servers come with security built-in, not bolted-on. Using a Cyber Resilient Architecture, Dell EMC commits to end-to-end server security on all PowerEdge servers.
In a world of perpetual innovations in technology, brands are continually stuck between slowing down and reinventing the wheel of martech which keeps them going, and staying put with delays in data activation. But they don’t have to settle for either of these approaches.
Now is the time for enterprises to reclaim their brand’s independence in agility, innovation and customer obsession, removing all traces of vendor lock-in, slow-down or strategic compromise with a comprehensive, centralized approach to marketing technology which goes beyond DMP: Intelligent Orchestration.

Cloud is no longer a tactical solution but rather a strategic enabler of connected economies. Technology leaders will orchestrate cloud ecosystems that connect employees, customers, partners, vendors, and devices to serve rising customer expectations. Firms will shift from being mere cloud adopters to becoming cloud companies themselves—stewards of their own ecosystems.
This Forrester report—presented by Epicor—highlights the transformation taking place as we move to a world of connected cloud ecosystems, and it describes how:
• The cloud economy disrupts business models
• Rightsourcing is a key challenge to cloud success
• You will orchestrate the cloud, and it will orchestrate you

Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.

Some customers are pushing independent software vendors to come out with their own appliances. Be careful what you ask for, because you may create something that you weren’t looking for. What happens if your favorite backup software product suddenly starts putting out its own appliance? At a minimum, other appliances from other vendors may cease to exist. Why should a big-box vendor partner with your backup software product only to compete with them? What happens when someone at the helm starts realizing that by creating a tighter integration between the software and the hardware, the company increases its bottom line enough to make that worthwhile? You may find yourself forced to buy a different hardware product than you want in order to keep the software that you like.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Gone are the days of a clearly defined network perimeter, in which you can confidently rely on static rules to detect intruders. As the cyber threat landscape has evolved, so has the vendor landscape. With all the options available, do you know which threat detection solutions to invest in – much less which ones will still exist in five years?
