As enterprise computing has evolved, businesses have been shifting to a “hybrid enterprise” where core applications and data can be located in private data centers and public clouds. The growth of hybrid cloud deployments accelerated the transition to hybrid wide-area networks (WANs). Private networks, such as MPLS, are being joined by Internet connections that offer a choice in delivery
channels—costly, but predictable, networks for mission-critical loads and cheaper public networks for bulk loads such as data backups.

An imperative for many enterprises is to undergo a digital transformation to develop new business models, engage better with customers and employees, and remain competitive. Underpinning this transformation is the use of cloud services, which support the rapid innovation and responsiveness required in the digital age.
Unfortunately, current enterprise networks tasked with delivering these innovative services are complex, rigid, costly, and were not built for the speed and flexibility needed in the cloud and digital era. As a result, many organizations are challenging the status quo of traditional networking by taking a software-defined approach.
Watch this webinar featuring research from Forrester to discover:
* Trends that are compelling 90% of organizations to evolve their networks
* Why SD-WAN is a critical enabler of digital transformation
* Key capabilities companies look for in an SD-WAN solution

This white paper explores the advantages of Operational ITSM- through incremental and continual improvement of service management practices on an ongoing basis. IT organizations must evolve into trusted service providers that adapt quickly, offer cost-effective, reliable, and flexible services to meet today's business initiatives. This evolution is not easy. It requires that the IT organization adopt an IT Service Management (ITSM) framework. Operational ITSM provides an incremental approach for companies that may not have the resources to finance and staff a large ITSM project.
Data modeling has evolved from an arcane technique for database designers into an entire family of interrelated techniques that serves many constituencies, including techno-phobic business stakeholders and users. The new maturity of modeling tools and techniques arrives in the nick of time, because new technical and regulatory realities demand that enterprises maintain scrupulous awareness of their data and how it is used. Data modeling is no longer for databases only, no longer for technologists only, and no longer optional.
This white paper examines the business case for a BPM CoE, the required components, and the expected value. It also includes a case study of how an investment management firm's CoE evolved from informal to strategic.
To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, traditional security strategies for monitoring, often based around security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics. In particular, four fundamental capabilites are required:
1. Pervasive visibility
2. Deeper analytics
3. Massive scalability
4. Unified view

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.
A key element of Citrix TriScale Technology for the market-leading NetScaler ADC, TriScale Clustering enables enterprises of all sizes to evolve from basic HA pairs to more efficient and scalable clustering deployments, and realize multiple benefits
In the spring of 2012, IBM® introduced its PureSystems family of intelligent, integrated, powerful and flexible computing systems. At that time, IBM committed to a continuing process of improvement and additions to these systems as technology and innovation evolved.
As IT infrastructures evolve, the complexity of software assets is constantly increasing, creating headaches for IT pros whose responsibility it is to keep track of it all. In response, many are
turning to software asset management (SAM) software. Chances are your organization may already have an asset management product in place that you think is adequate.
Customer service has evolved from a reactive activity viewed largely as a cost center-based tactical necessity, to a proactive management task that can in many ways set a company apart from the competition. At the same time, the channels by which customers receive support are growing and fragmenting very rapidly. The telephone is still the primary mode of support, but is steadily declining as text, social media, chat, knowledge bases, email and online communities provide new avenues for customers to get the help they need. Some organizations are embracing this evolution by implementing technologies that enable them to interact with customers regardless of the channel or the device they’re using. This approach not only improves customer service, but also boosts the brand image and helps companies achieve broader business goals.
Email marketing still work really well. But the world of email is changing. The inbox is fragmented like never before. Messages have to be more relevant, delivered at the right time, and still be considered important enough to read. If any of the signs in this piece sound familiar, it may be time for your organization to put a plan in place to move from ‘sending emails’ to developing a marketing automation program that meets the needs of your customers better.
