Enterprises understand that greater efficiency, improved time-to value, and new opportunities can be gained by using cloud platforms; automating and accelerating their IT delivery; and putting technology to work in new ways to digitally transform their business. The difficult question is how to create an organization that is able to deliver these innovations. Skilled resources do exist, but they command high salaries and are in short supply. In fact, 70% of respondents to a recent Computing survey stated that their companies face a shortage of cloud skills. While bringing in experienced staff who can guide and lead new initiatives is often a necessity, it’s vital to concurrently train your existing staff and adopt solutions that narrow the gap between the realities of the present and the hopes for the future.

In this white paper, we look at five of the critical use cases currently driving HCI deployments and why they will continue to benefit from HCI in 2019 and beyond. Hyper-converged infrastructure has emerged as a breakthrough IT technology over the past several years. With the right HCI solution, IT teams can lower costs, increase agility and reduce complexity—leveraging a modern software-defined IT platform that provides a seamless path to hybrid cloud. The reality is that IT teams have been so pleased with the benefits they are already reaping with HCI that they are looking for new ways to use it to power key initiatives such as digital transformation. This trend is being accelerated by advances in performance, ease of use and functionality, driven by technology innovations such as Intel Optane memory and VMware vSAN.

Digital transformation initiatives and the need for innovation are causing enterprises to rethink their IT landscapes including business-to-business (B2B) integration.

Data governance is all about managing data, by revising that data to standardize it and bring consistency to the way it is used across numerous business initiatives. What’s more, data governance ensures that critical data is available at the right time to the right person, in a standardized and reliable form. A benefit that fuels better organization of business operations, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency of that organization. Thus, the importance of proper data governance cannot be understated. The concepts of data governance have evolved, where the first iteration of data governance, often referred to as version 1.0, focused on three simplistic elements: objectives, structure and processes; having a limited focus and scope due to its tactical usage. The opportunity from the growing value of data in the realm of analytics, business intelligence, and generating insights was left unrealized. Today, organizations are moving towards what can be called Data Governance 2.0,

Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes. The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past. To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and

Customer experience might be a relatively new term, but the concept goes back millennia. In Ancient Greece, the retailer’s relationship with the customer was deep and personal, and that’s because the seller knew almost every customer extremely well. What happened? Mass distribution and mass marketing, for one. But now, thanks to technology, we are returning to being able to form a deep, personal relationship with the customer. Read this eBook to learn about the retailer’s journey from knowing the customer to depersonalization to using powerful technology to go back to the types of vendor-buyer relationships that existed thousands of years ago.
