This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this
offering to a similar x86 offering.
The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are:
? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures
? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5
? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration
The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different
perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost.
Performance matters as business markets are
driving IT to provide an environment that:
? Continuously provides real-time results.
? Processes more complex workload stacks.
? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses.
Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future,
as challenges to secure systems and data are
becoming more frequent and invasive from within
and from outside. Oracle SPARC systems approach

As of May 2017, according to a report from The Depository Trust &
Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides financial transaction and data processing services for the global financial industry, cloud computing has reached a tipping point1. Today, financial services companies can benefit from the capabilities and cost efficiencies of the cloud. In October of 2016, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) and the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) jointly announced enhanced cyber risk management standards for financial institutions in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR)2. These proposed standards for enhanced cybersecurity are aimed at protecting the entire financial system, not just the institution. To meet these new standards, financial institutions will require the right cloud-based network security
platform for comprehensive security management, verifiable compliance and governance and active protection of customer data

Download this white paper to learn the 8 ways by which outdated ERP systems hold back your business and how “version-less” cloud ERP can help eliminate costly upgrades, reduce IT infrastructure management and drive value with rapid implementation.
IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.
Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide:
• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

Business and IT leaders are looking to virtualization and cloud computing to deliver unprecedented agility for supporting a wide range of objectives, including cost management, increased mobility, higher application availability, and greater responsiveness to customer-related opportunities.
Organizations everywhere are turning to virtualization, cloud computing, and mobile technologies to support anytime, anywhere access to today’s work load intensive, data-heavy applications. Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers—built for high performance, 24/7 availability, and uncompromised reliability—can help IT organizations deliver the benefits of these transformative technologies.With cost-saving power, cooling, space, and management efficiencies, Dell’s new servers offer data centers unparalleled performance, efficiency, and reliability for a diverse range of enterprise applications.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
Forward-looking enterprises are deciding to replace their legacy systems with more modern enterprise management solutions that provide a better way to manage the entire business, at a lower cost and on a global scale. Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management solution is changing how enterprises compete and grow, by delivering faster, simpler and flexible enterprise management, at a fraction of the cost and complexity of typical enterprise ERP systems. Break free from the constraints of traditional ERP solutions and discover how Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management can accelerate your business.
Quocirca surveyed over 300 organisations across the UK, France, Germany, the Nordics, Benelux, Italy, Iberia and Israel on their attitudes to cloud-based services. The research revealed that cost is not the only thing driving the adoption of cloud services; improved efficiency and easier external interaction are also important. Another finding was that impediments to cloud adoption vary significantly by industry. A key finding was that “cloud enthusiasts” are more aware of, and likely to invest in, security technologies like identity and access management than “cloud avoiders”.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.
Businesses increasingly see cloud as the best route to enhanced agility and digital transformation. But this survey reveals that keeping the lid on cloud costs is far from straightforward.
Read this report to discover:
• whether businesses are realising the benefits they anticipated from cloud migration
• how effective companies are at managing cloud investments
• the risks and consequences of getting locked into inefficient architectures.
"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
