IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. It sounds synonymous with digital transformation, but in actuality, IT Transformation is the set of enabling technologies, processes, and focus areas that make effective digital transformation possible.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.

Download this whitepaper for 4 reasons shorter server resfresh cycles are better for business.
Analyst firm IDC reports that organizations can increase agility, improve efficiency and reduce operational costs by refreshing their servers every three years.
Organizations are collecting and analyzing increasing amounts of data making it difficult for traditional on-premises solutions for data storage, data management, and analytics to keep pace. Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier provide an ideal storage solution for data lakes. They provide options such as a breadth and depth of integration with traditional big data analytics tools as well as innovative query-in-place analytics tools that help you eliminate costly and complex extract, transform, and load processes.
This guide explains each of these options and provides best practices for building your Amazon S3-based data lake.
As easy as it is to get swept up by the hype surrounding big data, it’s just as easy for organizations to become discouraged by the challenges they encounter while implementing a big data initiative. Concerns regarding big data skill sets (and the lack thereof), security, the unpredictability of data, unsustainable costs, and the need to make a business case can bring a big data initiative to a screeching halt.
However, given big data’s power to transform business, it’s critical that organizations overcome these challenges and realize the value of big data.

IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?

At the most fundamental level an organization only does two things: operations and changes to operations. Regardless of the industry an organization is part of, or whether it is private or public sector, large or small, there is a constant drive to protect and improve operational aspects.
Whether it is launching a new product or service, decreasing costs, protecting infrastructure from failure or preventing regulatory noncompliance, there are numerous areas where an organization wants to change something about how it operates. That’s where projects come in.
In this whitepaper we look at what causes projects to fail so regularly and offer a sustainable approach for improving performance consistently.
Più di 400.000 lavoratori di circa 400 società, tra cui Polycom, Qantas e Toyota, usano già CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) per ridurre i costi, promuovere l'adozione e applicare processi decisionali più intelligenti.

Los trabajadores de hoy en día están acostumbrados a usar tecnologías personales que facilitan la comunicación y que simplifican sus vidas. Sin embargo, muchas herramientas empresariales no han podido seguir el ritmo.
La mayoría de soluciones de gestión de carteras y productos actuales no logran proporcionar formas sencillas de realizar las tareas diarias. No facilitan una comunicación en contexto que ayude a solucionar los problemas y no cuentan con funcionalidades básicas, como la capacidad de estrechar el foco sobre los datos relevantes, de clasificar información adicional, de realizar previsiones financieras eficaces y de modelar los resultados.
Más de 400 000 empleados y unas 400 empresas, entre las que se incluyen Polycom, Qantas y Toyota, ya utilizan CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) para reducir costes, impulsar la implementación y tomar decisiones de negocio más inteligentes.
Con la ayuda de CA Services, las empresas pueden implementar y configurar CA PPM SaaS de forma rápida, lo que simplifica el proceso de comprar, usar y gestionar la solución.
Las modernas soluciones, como CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM), siguen superando el listón de las herramientas de gestión de la demanda de TI de última generación y proporcionan continuamente nuevas funciones que aligeran la carga del PMO, el gestor financiero, el gestor de recursos y el gestor de productos.
En los últimos años, los nuevos distribuidores que buscan aprovechar el gran mercado, cada vez más influyente, de gestión de proyectos y carteras (PPM) han desarrollado módulos que “encajan” en las plataformas SaaS. Estos distribuidores declaran que sus herramientas son fáciles de instalar, de gestionar y permiten ahorrar costes al cliente. Increíble, pero cierto. Y es así para la mayoría de las organizaciones.
Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.
