Insights into avoiding migration regret amongst CxO’s:
The decision to move business workloads and applications to the cloud impacts all parts of the business and isn’t a decision isolated to the IT team.
Our latest research study on the different motives, concerns and experiences of executive peers and business stakeholders when securing buy-in for a strategic IT move found 97% of C-level executives in ANZ suffered from migration regret during their first cloud migration.
Packed with telling hindsight, over 200 c-suite executives shared their expectations and experiences during the cloud migration journey. They reveal what they would have done differently - namely enhanced communication and a clear plan of action - and offer practical advice to help others get buy-in internally and secure funding to support a move to the cloud.

This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of SaaS and cloud-enabledenterprise content application software vendors as of 2019 through the IDC MarketScape methodology at a worldwide level. This assessment presentsboth quantitative and qualitative characteristics of cloud content management applications in the market, as it relates to the planning, budgeting, and forecasting tasks that are typically conducted in support of managing and processing content in a global setting.
The evaluation is based on acomprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses each vendor relative to the criteria and to one another.It was a requirement that the content application not only runsin a cloud setting but also takes advantage of the cloud constructssuch as multiregional data and process orchestration,scale and elasticity of users and data,distributed agility with edge computing,and self-service purchasing and provisioning of modules.

Understanding HR and Engagement Leaders’ Challenges and Opportunities
When employees are recognized, the business performs better. Recognition is one of the most basic strategies for strengthening the employer and employee relationship, yet it is too often overlooked. Many companies are not aware of the available options and as a result, only recognize employees in an ad hoc way. The right technology can play a critical role in helping organizations make recognition more consistent, frequent, and meaningful – which ultimately boosts productivity and the bottom line

Today, deep learning is at the forefront of most machine learning implementations across a broad set of business verticals. Driven by the highly flexible nature of neural networks, the boundary of what is possible has been pushed to a point where neural networks outperform humans in a variety of tasks, such as classifying objects in images or mastering video games in a matter of hours. This guide outlines the end-to-end deep learning process implemented on Amazon Web Services (AWS). We discuss challenges in executing deep learning projects, highlight the latest and greatest technology and infrastructure offered by AWS, and provide architectural guidance and best practices along the way.
This paper is intended for deep learning research scientists, deep learning engineers, data scientists, data engineers, technical product managers, and engineering leaders.

Renewable energy is increasingly affordable, good for the environment and here to stay. The problem is that the nation's electrical grid isn't ready for it. The grid was not built for the kind of fluctuating supply that comes from distributed energy generation. In addition to the increased volatility associated with distributed energy resources, utilities are confronted with increased demands on the grid from electrification and digitization of the economy. Customer expectations for consumer-grade digital experiences and increased emphasis on safety and reliability are only increasing.
To optimize technology operating costs and free-up funds to drive innovation, it’s critical for IT organizations to identify waste and eliminate it. A good place to start is often in the application portfolio, where it’s commonplace to have redundant apps which overlap in function and deliver minimal to no business value.
How do you zero in on the resource-drainers and excise them without compromising service delivery or ongoing business processes? How do you undertake the complicated route of rationalizing your application portfolio???

Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging
technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are
quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a
Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications
environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid
scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility.
Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and
reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a
result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN)
technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build
enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN
connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su
Over the last several years, DigitalOcean has built out its feature set in a way that has taken it from a provider of cheap and simple virtual machines (VMs) to a legitimate public cloud alternative, most recently adding support for Redis and MySQL to its managed database services. As its services evolve, it continues to experience healthy growth and maintain popularity among the independent developer audience. Over the past two years, DigitalOcean has accelerated the velocity of its feature development, looking to better meet the needs of a business audience. By emphasizing a simplified feature set, pricing structure and user experience, even as it expands its competitive footprint in the shadow of public cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Digital Ocean continues to help define what it means to be an alternative public cloud in a market dominated and largely defined by hyperscalers.
Discover why businesses undergoing digital transformation need storage technologies beyond all flash. HPE has just introduced a solution, which will start to ship in calendar 4Q18, that leverages storage-class memory (SCM) and NVMe for HPE's 3PAR and Nimble Storage. This IDC white paper takes a look at the evolving enterprise storage market and which workloads tend to require low latency and very high throughput and bandwidth, and gives a brief overview of one of the first enterprise storage offerings based around these two technologies, HPE Memory-Driven Flash.
Discover the transformational power of intelligent storage. A company’s competitive success depends greatly on how well it harnesses the value of its data. However, it can be challenging to keep pace with the increases in the scale of data being generated, as well as users’ demands for accessibility. Additionally, maximizing the value of digital information requires data to be leveraged at both the optimal time and the optimal place. With HPE’s intelligent storage portfolio, organizations can modernize their IT to better understand their customers, run more agile IT functions, and improve logistical operations.

It seems every business sector—automotive, aerospace and defense, heavy industry, consumer goods, even agriculture—wants “smarter” products that will be part of the Internet of Things (IoT) and form the basis for connected factories of the future. For engineering departments large and small, that means today’s design engineering teams are being asked to create more complex product designs, simulate more advanced mechanical and electrical phenomena, and virtually assemble components as part of larger systems—all in less time.
