Today's IT executives are not only expected to create and maintain high-availability IT environments, but they are also expected to implement green initiatives to satisfy customers, analysts, and government agencies that are worried about the impact of modern, energy-thirsty data centers on the environment. Is such a dual mandate reasonable? Can companies be expected to maintain service levels and reduce their carbon footprints at the same time? The White Paper offers a description of the different types of services available to improved energy efficiency data center design and a prescription for successful implementation.

Today’s enterprises face new requirements for their datacenter
and cloud architectures, from keeping pace cost-effectively with
fast-growing traffic to ensuring optimal application
performance no matter how quickly business needs or the
enterprise environment evolve. At the same time, IT must reduce
costs and datacenter sprawl, ensure security and uptime, and
prepare for a new generation of cloud computing initiatives.
While many Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solutions
promise to meet demanding customer needs, the reality often
falls short. Taking a closer look at the available options and how
they measure up against the criteria that matter most, it
becomes clear that NetScaler beats the competition—providing
better performance and scalability than F5 Networks, Inc.
How will you prepare your company for cloud adoption? Cloud services are especially attractive to midmarket companies hit with the high cost of meeting compliance requirements.

Across industries, more and more companies are moving to the cloud. According to one study, approximately 93% of businesses are using cloud technologies in order to increase operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve agility. Today, integration is a strategic component of every digital transformation and initiative that involves moving to the cloud.

Access to data – particularly customer data – is critical for companies looking to transform customer experience. This is why organizations start initiatives to create a single customer view. Building this single customer view without APIs, however, is becoming more difficult due to the large number of fragmented systems.
Read this whitepaper to learn:
A new approach to modularizing your single customer view, to accommodate changes, trends, market shifts, and other factors in order to deliver the right experience to your customers at the right time.
How an API-led approach to integrating systems provides a well-constructed single customer view using APIs, and we’ll also suggest tools to make this job easier.

To put it carefully, certain technology decisions at the federal level since 2002 have been questionable. But citing new “Cloud First” policies for implementations in government contact centers, data centers, and federal agencies, cloud initiatives are now showing value by way of cost reductions and broader functionality. Abdo Rabadi of Blue Kite Consultants and Mechele Herres of Interactive Intelligence say even more benefits of the cloud await. Read how the federal government can best achieve them.
Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has evidenced strong and growing interest in cloud deployment models. While public cloud has gotten the earliest attention, stronger adoption is happening within private and hybrid models. In the EMA April 2014 report “Managing Networks in the Age of Cloud, SDN, and Big Data Network Management Megatrends 2014,” over 50% of respondents reported public/hybrid cloud initiatives were driving network management priorities. Since 2012, cloud projects have moved from early adopter status to mainstream business initiatives, and their impact on network management grew from 36% in 2012 to over 50% in 2014.
