Robotic process automation describes the use of technology to automate tasks that are traditionally
done by a human being. The technology itself mimics an end user by simulating user actions such as
navigating within an application or entering data into forms according to a set of rules. RPA is often
used to automate routine administrative tasks that typically require a human being to interact with
multiple systems, but RPA technology is evolving to support the automation of increasingly
sophisticated processes at scale within enterprise architectures rather than on the desktop. Over the
past two years, RPA has been adopted by a number of business process outsourcing (BPO) providers
and a growing number of end-user organizations are now deploying the technology themselves to
create “virtual workforces” of robotic workers.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Bandwidth. Speed. Throughput. These terms are not interchangeable. They are
interrelated concepts in data networking that help measure capacity, the time
it takes to get from one point to the next and the actual amount of data
you’re receiving, respectively.
When you buy an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise, you’re buying
a pipe between your office and the Internet with a set capacity, whether it is
25 Mbps, 10 Gbps, or any increment in between. However, the bandwidth we
provide does not tell the whole story; it is the throughput of the entire system
that matters. Throughput is affected by obstacles, overhead and latency,
meaning the throughput of the system will never equal the bandwidth of your
The good news is that an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise is
engineered to ensure you receive the capacity you purchase; we proactively
monitor your bandwidth to ensure problems are dealt with promptly, and
we are your advocates across the Internet w
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
Whether your company has been selling online for 20 minutes or 20 years, you are
undoubtedly familiar with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It
requires merchants to create security management policies and procedures for safeguarding
customers’ payment data.
Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS
has evolved over the years to ensure online sellers have the systems and processes in place
to prevent a data breach.

Are you asking the right questions about your data center?
• Would you like your IT infrastructure to be faster and more agile?
• Would you like to improve your cost structure?
• Do you plan to adopt a hybrid IT infrastructure and become a service provider for your business?
To adapt to and compete in our ultra-connected, data-driven, and digital world, you need to effectively plan, build, integrate, and manage your facilities, platforms, and systems to efficiently align your infrastructure resources.
The increasing demands of application and database workloads, growing numbers of virtual machines, and more powerful processors are driving demand for ever-faster storage systems. Increasingly, IT organizations are turning to solid-state storage to meet these demands, with hybrid and all-flash arrays taking the place of traditional disk storage for high performance workloads.

In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach.
This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.
Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
