For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.
As enterprises work to replicate the development agility of internet companies and innovate in highly competitive markets, application development has grown increasingly complex. The large, monolithic codebases that traditionally power enterprise applications make it difficult to quickly launch new services. Siloed and potentially distributed development and operations teams present organizational alignment problems. On top of this, users are more demanding than ever – enterprises need to scale effectively and monitor deployments to ensure customers are provided with high performance and a consistent experience. Of course, all this needs to be done while providing always-on service availability.
À l’heure où les entreprises traditionnelles s’emploient à copier les pionniers d’Internet sur le terrain de l’agilité et de l’innovation, le développement d’applications devient de plus en plus complexe. Tout d’abord, les codes source monolithiques sur lesquels reposent traditionnellement les applications d’entreprise ralentissent le lancement de nouveaux services. Quant au cloisonnement et à la dispersion des équipes opérationnelles et de développement, ils provoquent un manque de coordination des actions de chacun en interne. Et pour couronner le tout, les utilisateurs sont plus exigeants que jamais sur les questions d’expérience et de performance. Les entreprises doivent donc assurer une scalabilité efficace et un suivi attentif de leurs environnements. Le tout, bien entendu, sur fond de disponibilité à 100 % des services.

The future of financial services is under pressure from profound digital disruption. Across the globe, there are forces, both regulatory and customer-led, that open up the market to new entrants and disrupt what customers are buying — and how. The advent of Open Banking is one major influence, with Open APIs paving the way for third-party developers to build applications and services independently.
This whitepaper outlines the challenges facing financial services firms and how a new approach to enterprise integration — API-led connectivity — can help banks and financial services firms not only survive, but thrive in an increasingly competitive future.

The ever-rising tide of demands on IT organizations is creating constant pressure on their leaders to upgrade or replace their outmoded legacy systems with new infrastructure technologies that will allow them to keep pace with the speed of business. It is no longer sufficient to manage basic business applications and resources such as ERP, email, and silos of heterogeneous data. The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.
To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
These are no longer capitally strained organizations building an application on a one-off basis, with the cloud this is enterprise transition, this is enterprise applications being shifted to the cloud, new applications being developed in the cloud, and this requires a completely new way of building and consuming IT services for the enterprise.

The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
Applications modernization has become imperative as the maintenance of “mature” applications consumes a disproportionate share of resources. HP aligns critical applications and infrastructure with your overall modernization program.
