Cloud computing generated $100 billion in 2012, which is estimated to be $127 billion by 2017 and an impressive $500 billion by 2020. What was once an innovative technology of the future is now the standard way of doing business. The challenge for companies is to leverage what still works well from their in-house legacy infrastructure and augment that with a new cloudbased infrastructure to meet their future needs. Learn how to transition to advanced cloud usage and build a strong team for your company.

Just as Amazon Web Services (AWS) has transformed IT infrastructure to something that can be delivered on demand, scalably, quickly, and cost-effectively, Amazon Redshift is doing the same for data warehousing and big data analytics. Redshift offers a massively parallel columnar data store that can be spun up in just a few minutes to deal with billions of rows of data at a cost of just a few cents an hour. It’s designed for speed and ease of use — but to realize all of its potential benefits, organizations still have to configure Redshift for the demands of their particular applications. Whether you’ve been using Redshift for a while, have just implemented it, or are still evaluating it as one of many cloud-based data warehouse and business analytics technology options, your organization needs to understand how to configure it to ensure it delivers the right balance of performance, cost, and scalability for your particular usage scenarios.

In this era of cloud computing, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), firms are testing new product offerings that combine elements of content, software, services, and hardware together. Like the innovative products themselves, the rulebook on monetizing them is evolving. Firms are shifting from one-time perpetual sales or fixed monthly subscriptions to consumption models that blend onetime, subscription, and usage-based billing (see Figure 1). CEOs recognize this shift toward business models that reflect the value of the relationship with the customer. The move to subscription and consumption business models is pervasive in almost every industry. From retailers selling subscription box sets to industrial equipment manufacturers charging based on consumption, the increase in experimentation of alternative business models is extraordinary (see Figure 2). While B2C disrupters like Netflix and Zipcar have gotten more media attention, the growth of subscription billing plat

As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions. In October 2013, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to dive deeper into the current usage trends and perceptions of unified communications among midsize organizations (100 to 999 employees) across North America, Asia, and Europe.

Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table. And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same. Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact

The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure. In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters. Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the next 12 to 18 months.

The client had an extensive global multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network with over 30 Gbps of bandwidth. However, the client was experiencing bandwidth growth of >30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) and foresaw increasing demands for multi-media applications, data center to data center traffic, and cloud solution usage to support its business units and global workforce. It became crucial for the client to re-architect their current network to support growth and provide a globally consistent user experience at lower cost. With 40% of their WAN traffic being http internet traffic, they needed regional internet service provider (ISP) breakouts. The client needed a lower cost/MB high capacity WAN backbone for better application performance and cloud optimization. Their network needed to be scalable to poise them for anticipated growth and offer improved site connectivity options.

Is email still the “killer app” it used to be? Social technologies and mobile capabilities are changing the way people communicate in the workplace. Many organizations are employing BYOD strategies and embracing social business tools like file sharing, chat, wikis and communities. In the past, email was used for storing and sharing documents and having conversations with groups. Tasks which are much better suited for today's social cloud collaboration tools. Email usage may be evolving, but email is not dead. In fact, everyone in the organization from executives to factory workers needs email to stay connected. And many organizations are moving their messaging to cloud to take advantage of the flexibility and cost savings a cloud environment provides.
