Whether your business is involved with it yet or not, cloud computing will play a significant role in the future of IT: it has already been enthusiastically embraced by small and medium sized businesses and its potential is also being accepted and exploited by larger enterprises.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
Cloud computing is increasingly being adopted as a way for IT organizations to decrease costs, improve efficiency, and enhance business agility. NetApp has been helping companies succeed in cloud deployment to achieve tangible results since long before the term cloud entered the popular lexicon. NetApp has the people, technologies, and partnerships in place to help organizations evolve existing IT infrastructure into an efficient cloud-based service delivery model. The NetApp® Unified Storage Architecture and clustered Data ONTAP® operating system integrate all storage capabilities into a single, easy-to-use platform. By choosing NetApp when making the transition to a private cloud or a hybrid cloud, organizations will be able to meet their storage business needs now and in the future.
As IT advances, organizations are adopting infrastructures that enhance agility and improve efficiency.
Data centers are evolving to a state that is almost unrecognizable from only a few years ago. Numerous forces, such as cloud computing and powerful orchestration solutions, are combining to fundamentally change data centers, making them more powerful, sophisticated, flexible and efficient. Many organizations are adopting a hybrid infrastructure data center model that combines a variety of technologies and methodologies, including virtualization, private clouds and other internal IT resources, along with external options such as hosting, colocation, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offerings.
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.

Businesses receive a number of benefits from running their IT operations within virtualized cloud environments, including: automation, economics and efficieny. Yet, as more mission-critical applications and workloads are run within cloud environments, IT staff lack the means for effective management. Businesses need new tools that meet cloud-era demands and deliver the same benefits as cloud computing itself: automation, economics and efficiency.
ESG research indicates that the corporate usage of public cloud computing in the form of cloud-based infrastructure services, business applications , and/or application development continues to grow. What are the profiles of the organizations at the forefront of the cloud adoption movement, how are these services being leveraged today, and what is their likely level of impact over a five-year horizon?
