Hewlett-Packard (HP) is unique in this EMA Radar in its ability to combine two threads – a single analytic overlay as embodied in its Service Health Analyzer (SHA) product, and a broader suite solution optimized for HP to participate in all three use cases here with maximum functional impact. This is not entirely a black-and-white situation, as SHA does leverage and currently largely depends on integration with HP Business Service Management 9.1, which is itself a suite. But SHA can assimilate other third-party sources, checks out brilliantly in early-phase deployments in terms of time-to-value and analytic power, and is the lead reason for HP’s strong Value Leader showing in technical performance management.
The term “network management” encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations’ operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.
For this EMA™ Radar, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations’ need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.
Worldwide social network ad spending is expected to reach nearly $9 billion in 2013, a 33% increase over 2012. While Facebook will maintain a significant share of the 2013 total ($5.48 billion), that leaves $3.5 billion to be spent on fast-rising Twitter, Chinese social networks, social games, LinkedIn and other sites.
Where should you be advertising in 2012? How will consumer behavior change the way you interact with your audience? What mobile trends will impact you most this year?

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.
