"Customers in the midst of digital transformation look first to the public cloud when seeking dramatic simplification, cost, utilization and flexibility advantages for their new application workloads. But using public cloud comes with its own challenges. It’s not always possible or practical for enterprises to retire their traditional, on-premises enterprise system still running the company’s most mission- critical workloads. Hybrid IT – a balanced combination of traditional infrastructure, private cloud and public cloud – is the answer. But a true hybrid IT deployment must go well beyond the current generation of hybrid cloud systems, where the on-premises and off-premises worlds have largely remained siloed and still have to be independently managed. This paper seeks to answer how to bring those siloes together by identifying eight essentials that must be met to achieve the ideal hybrid IT implementation."

What's in the white paper? Great customer service hinges on efficient order fulfillment — especially the initial processing of a customer’s order. With thousands of sales orders coming into most large organizations monthly, this mission-critical process can demand a significant portion of customer service representatives’ (CSRs') time and attention in the quest for near-perfect input accuracy and order fulfillment. But such intensive personnel support isn’t necessary for effective order processing. Great customer service doesn’t have to be cumbersome. Sales order automation can transform customer service and operations which provide quantifiable benefits to the organization. Automation provides an opportunity to improve order management by: • Reducing error rates and decreasing costs per order • Improving process transparency from receipt to archival • Reducing reshipping and inventory problems

Dell EMC provides VMware vSAN Ready Nodes that combine a wide range of Dell hardware and VMware vSAN software into a ready-to-order package. These include the new single-socket Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415 servers powered by the AMD EPYC 7000-series processors. These Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes are validated and configured to meet hyper-converged workload needs while taking advantage of lower single-socket licensing costs from VMware. Dell commissioned Demartek to evaluate the performance of the new Dell EMC PowerEdge R7415 servers that use the AMD EPYC 7000-series of processors. Mixed enterprise workloads were run in this VMware vSAN cluster using one model of the AMD EPYC processor in each of three identical nodes.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years. As Digital Transformation initiatives unfold, one key challenge is to modernize the data center to facilitate rapid delivery of new applications and services—while still ensuring that existing missioncritical applications remain high performing, available, and secure. Another challenge relates to new requirements for accelerating the analysis of organizational data to near real time, much faster than previously possible with earlier incarnations of Business Intelligence (BI). Agile businesses are demanding faster access to the information contained within operational and business data stores to

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect May25, 2018. If you process European Union (EU) personal data, GDPR likely applies to you—even if you’re not in the EU. That’s because the regulation is truly global in scope and applies to any organization that processes EU personal data, irrespective of where the companies are based or where the data is processed. At its heart, the GDPR legislation is about ensuring privacy is respected as a fundamental right and that personal data is kept private and secure. Elizabeth Denham, of the EU Information Commissioner Office (ICO), says “This law is not about fines. It’s about putting the consumer and citizen first” and “Issuing fines has always been and will continue to be, a last resort.” However, it’s important to note the costs of noncompliance can be severe. These can include a fine of up to 4 percent of global turnover (revenues) or €20m, whichever is higher; a temporary or permanent suspension of the right to access or proce

Digital technologies are rewriting the rulebooks across industries. They are not only having a profound impact on how organizations work, but are also redefining the parameters of productivity and success. Organizations that can evolve and embrace this fast paced, digital world that we live in are more likely to be successful. However, given the rapid pace at which digital trends are evolving, what might be an industry standard at one moment can be displaced the next. This means that for enterprises, simply striving to keep up might no longer be enough, as businesses need to lead the way with new technology in their industries. Infosys commissioned an independent market research company, Vanson Bourne, to investigate the use of digital technologies and key trends in nine industries.

In an age where your users demand no-fail experience, continuous testing has become a mission critical component for engineering teams of all sizes. However, while this topic was once discussed at lower levels, the conversation has made it all the way to the C-suite. No matter your industry, if your team isn’t thinking about testing at a high level, then there is a chance that you are missing out on revenue due to flawed app functionality, delayed releases and slowed innovation. It is important to understand the business benefits of continuous testing and automation to avoid these outcomes, and make the changes necessary to set your applications up for success.

For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability. I had the pleasure of meeting David Harcourt, Associate Manager of Employee Insights at Yum! Brands when he spoke at the Analytics Experience 2016 conference in Las Vegas. His session, “HR Analytics from Scratch: 8 Lessons Learned in the First Year,” provided valuable insight into what it takes to build HR analytic competency from scratch.
