While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.
To win the colocation race you need to be faster, reliable, innovative and efficient –all while making smarter design choices that will ensure positive returns. Customers are demanding 100% uptime and always-on connectivity –be it small enterprises to large Internet Giants–and colocation providers need to meet these expectations. The growing adoption of prefabricated data centers allows just that. With the undisputed benefits of prefab modules and building components(like speed or quality),colocation providers can manage their business today, and deploy faster in the future.
Chris Crosby, CEO for Compass Datacenters, is well-known for his expertise in the data center industry. From its founding in 2012, Compass’ data center solutions have used prefabricated components like exterior walls and power centers to deliver brandable, dedicated facilities for colocation providers. Prefabrication is the central element of the company’s “Kit of Parts” methodology that delivers customizable data center solutions from the core to the edge. By attending this webinar, colocation providers will:
• understand the flexibility and value delivered via the use of prefabricated construction
• Hear the common misperceptions regarding prefabricated modules and data center components
• learn how prefabricated solutions can provide more revenue generation capability than competing alternatives
• know what key things to consider when evaluating prefabricated data center design

We live in the age of “multi”. Everything is becoming more complex, more “intelligent”, and more distributed. Hybrid cloud isn’t really the new frontier—some companies have been operating in a hybrid cloud environment for nearly a decade—the new frontier is learning HOW to take full advantage of hybrid cloud without creating data silos or busting the IT budget.
Enterprises are, of course, always looking for ways to make their computer systems faster, more highly available, more fault tolerant, and simpler to scale.
But in the age of “multi,” this is becoming harder and harder to do.
Imagine running a social network with millions of U.S.-based users and millions of European users. You could host all your servers and data in the United States, but then all of your European users would have a slower experience using your application than their U.S.-based counterparts.

Enterprises increasingly operate in a digitally interconnected world where third parties like suppliers, customers, channel partners, and others are often directly connected to their internal IT systems, and where their underlying IT infrastructure may be owned and managed by an outside organization. These business relationships can knowingly or unknowingly introduce different types of risks that need to be identified and managed as if these third parties were part of the enterprise itself. Recorded Future's latest risk intelligence offering enables threat intelligence teams to better understand, monitor, and measure their real-time exposure to these third-party risks. Armed with this information, organizations can better assess and prioritize risk mitigation actions.

Current methods for accessing complex, distributed information delay decisions and, even worse, provide incomplete insight. This paper details the impact of Unified Information Access (UIA) in improving the agility of information-driven business processes by bridging information silos to unite content and data in one index to power solutions and applications that offer more complete insight.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization

Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
