Windows Server 2016 is an important release in enabling
IT to deliver on the promise of the third platform.
It provides a path to a seamless, integrated cloud
environment—incorporating public, private and hybrid
models—with the software-defined data center as the
hub. In migrating to this next-generation data center
model, it is essential that IT leaders choose the right
partner for the compute platform, as well as storage,
networking and systems management

CA Technologies, a software company servicing the majority of the Global Fortune 500, wanted to help its internal development teams get its world-class apps to market faster. By using OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, CA Technologies was able to provide a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for its internal teams to more quickly build and deploy Software-as-a Service (SaaS) applications for its external customers. Development times dropped from months to weeks in most cases. In addition, the new system offers maximum scalability by automatically spinning up or spinning down servers based on user load.
"Oracle SPARC systems are engineered from the cloud and provide customers with effortless security, breakthrough efficiency, and straightforward simplicity.
“Cloud is the way to go and we try to deliver that in the form of a platform that you can rely upon, that can scale, scale massively, scale reliably. The thing about SPARC in contract to other chips is the software that runs on it is highly reliable. You can heat it, you can beat it, you can give it a lot of load, but it doesn’t break, it just keeps running.”

If anyone remained skeptical about the cloud’s utility— and staying power—as a delivery mechanism for everything from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and more, a quick look at recent statistics would surely change their mind. Indeed, with the cloud software market reaching US$48.8 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow to US$112.8 billion by 2019, it’s clear that cloud computing is not just the way of the future, it’s also the way of the present.
Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.
But that revenue was in danger.
The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.
To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software
The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.
Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
Read how companies such as Beam Suntory have redefined enterprise architecture and learn more about the way an integrated hyperconverged infrastructure can help you build the right infrastructure for the future.

OEMs today face significant challenges that restrict effective fleet analysis. Data is often siloed and held in several incompatible formats, meaning responding to software faults can be a costly and lengthy process.
To overcome this, Here have combined OTA technology with the HERE Open Location Platform. By closing this loop, Here provide a one-stop solution for data enrichment and analysis – and Here turn connected vehicle data into over-the-air updates.
Watch this webinar and learn how HERE enables:
• Early error detection and proactive remote maintenance of software and firmware
• Reduction of data management value chain complexity with its one-stop solution
• Effective fault response and real-time access to new products and services
To provide drivers with navigation experiences that are always fresh, differentiated and that set an OEM’s brand apart on either embedded or mobile platforms, automakers need an unprecedented level of flexibility and control over data, software and the delivery process.
As a SaaS offering, HERE Navigation on Demand offers automakers a new way to solve their key challenges – such as static software, complex and costly solution development and the inability to update or upgrade the experience once vehicles are in the field.
Automakers need alternatives as they overhaul their navigation and connected service programs and bring change to their development, deployment, and monetization processes. This whitepaper outlines how HERE Technologies can support them to deliver compelling navigation and connected experiences, while keeping them in full control of their branding and revenue streams.

In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.
