This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.

To paraphrase an old saying, “When the going gets tough, retailers start slashing operational costs.”  Ironically, cost slashing usually exposes a retailer to even greater risks instead of fortifying it against economic uncertainties.  All businesses have felt the impact of today’s volatile economy.  Retail has been hit especially hard, with sales in 2007 rising by only 2.4% - the smallest year-to-year increase since 2002. Despite such dour statistics, there are plenty of opportunities to gain share in today’s market.

Our client offered electronic money transfer services. For years they had provided the digital links and the networks of agents that enabled people to send money quickly and easily around the world. But digital technology introduced a number of challenges to their business. Not only were pure digital payment companies threatening the agent-based model, but their business models had lower operating costs than a network of physical agents. Also, other technologies such as virtual money transfer via blockchain were being more widely adopted. In addition, industry mergers strengthened competitors, while increased protectionism began to reduce the number of migrant workers - the core customers of our client. The digital world was looking like a difficult place to operate in.

Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that? In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a large bandwidth. The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core (EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware. NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c

Keas surveyed more than 100 Human Resource Executives across the United States via an online survey between July 31 and August 16, 2013. This survey tracked HR executive opinions on HR topics and plans and priorities for the 2014 calendar year.

More sales. Cost efficiency. Higher profits. – Every marketer wants these, but over-emphasizing unit cost of POP materials over the total cost of production makes them miss out on chances to achieve them.

It entails, however, embracing new ways of thinking that can involve “unlearning” the status quo. This piece looks at factors comprising the three main categories contributing to Total Cost of Ownership: Direct Costs, Indirect Costs, and Post-Purchase Costs.

The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.
