As networks scale, they become difficult to manage. A different command line interface (CLI) or operating system (OS) is required for every device type in your network, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. Learning a new OS for every device is a complex task for your operations team and can slow them down—not a very efficient way to run a network.
A Scalable Data Center Network for the Data Tsunami Digital Transformation and other changes drive vast and innumerable new data flows through the business, and increase pressure on IT to continually, quickly, and efficiently address a broad array of new demands. IT needs a network that empowers the business but is too often hampered by it instead. Network management as most practice it now is too complex and inefficient. The solution is automation.
This IDC white paper discusses Juniper's Network Lifecycle Automation Services, a suite of capabilities and services that provide customers the ability to accelerate their digital transformation in a smart, simple, cost-efficient, and more secure way.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.

Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
Network automation is becoming increasingly important for organizations of any size that are striving to make their IT infrastructure more agile, reliable and cost-efficient. While companies of all sizes have embraced server and storage virtualization, the network typically has not kept pace. In many cases, network provisioning and management are still handled by manual processes that slow down deployments, increase overhead costs and add risk in the form of human error.
Midsize Aerospace and Aviation manufacturers need to choose a system that quickly delivers the core capabilities they need to streamline product development but also gives them room to grow value over time.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software can help. It drives better product development performance by managing product-related data, processes and projects. While smaller companies may be able to control, access and share product data with relatively simple Product Data Management (PDM) tools, larger manufacturers rely on full featured PLM systems that help automate processes and share data across global Aerospace and Aviation companies.
Learn how Dassault Systèmes Program Management solutions can help Aerospace and Aviation companies reliably execute on their proposed plans to meet their design, cost and schedule targets.

One way to shift testing practices earlier in your software lifecycle is by using multi-layered visual models to specify requirements in a way where all ambiguity is inherently removed. With unambiguous and complete requirements, developers introduce less defects into their code and manual test cases, automated test scripts and required test data can be automatically generated based on the requirement, without manual intervention.
A lot can be learned from getting a group of experienced CIOs in a room and encouraging them to talk freely about the topics at the front of their minds. Rarely do they want to discuss technology, and even the latest IT industry ‘hot topics’ usually don’t get that much airplay. Conversations, and sometimes quite heated debates, tend to revolve around broader business-related trends, how these are changing stakeholder and user behaviour and expectations, and how best to respond to such dynamics.

GDPR compliance can be achieved through a combination of people, processes and technology. This document has described solutions that can help organizations with their GDPR journey. But you can extend that protection and strengthen security controls even further via strong and risk authentication or workload automation for the processing automation of personal data helping you comply with GDPR as well as similar mandates. Regulations tend to set the minimum standards to be required, but in the application economy, open enterprises must ensure due diligence to protect one of the most important and critical assets: private customer information.
La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.

This paper presents a cost/benefit case for two leading enterprise database contenders -- IBM DB2 11.1 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (DB2 11.1 LUW) and Oracle Database 12c -- with regard to delivering effective security capabilities, high-performance OLTP capacity and throughput, and efficient systems configuration and management automation. Comparisons are of database installations in the telecommunications, healthcare, and consumer banking industries. For OLTP workloads in these environments, three-year costs average 32 percent less for use of DB2 11.1 compared to Oracle 12c.
