Workforce Management (WFM) systems have clearly evolved from the strictly transactional platforms used to deploy workers, track their time and attendance, manage their costs, pay them, administer benefits and provide compliance support.
However, WFM systems are actually vital for driving overall business performance … not just for achieving excellence in HR, payroll and benefits administration, time and attendance management
Read this white paper to learn how to realize the full value of workforce management systems.
How long did it take to get a permanent fix for your last network problem? Too long? Even worse, did you fall short of actually getting one? If so, it's not surprising. But because
of network visibility problems, chances are good that your organization is leaking real money in network and business downtime.
With this white paper you will learn valuable information on how to have this problem fixed sooner and maintain better performance from your Network.

Learn how the company reduced costs, achieved LAN-speed latency with AWS, increased application performance, and improved customer experience. The added ability to expand to locations not served by public cloud provided added strategic advantage.
This IDC white paper describes the challenges associated with managing the growing complexity of IT infrastructures, with a focus on support services for the enterprise. It highlights the important role of support services in maximizing system performance and minimizing downtime. The paper also examines the HP Insight Online, HP Insight Remote Support, and HP Proactive Care service offerings, specifically for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers featuring Intel Xeon technologies — including an analysis of the return on investment (ROI) from these programs for existing HP customers.
Leading organizations don’t think of data protection in traditional back-office terms—and that’s no accident. They think and act like service providers, and in doing so transform data protection operations from mere cost centers to business enablers. Traditional data protection architectures can’t meet today’s challenges of massive growth, application performance, and data availability. And they aren't designed for services-oriented business models.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.
You are being buried by data. Multimedia including videos, audio and photos. Unstructured data in presentations, documents and social media feeds. Even the voicemails and databases that used to be the primary residents of your storage system are growing beyond your ability to manage them effectively. How can you keep it all under control without buying an endless stream of disk and storage devices?
Experts from EMC and other leading storage manufacturers discuss the very latest trends in storage solutions and how an effective application of storage strategy can help tame the information beast and keep performance and availability issues at bay.
Attendees will learn:
- What are the hidden drivers in storage growth
- How businesses of all sizes can benefit from a tiered storage strategy
- Why virtualization is penetrating every level of IT
- What role SSD and flash will play in every storage environment
- What to do now to improve storage utilization and save costs
Flash is quickly emerging as the preferred way to overcome the nagging performance limitations of hard disk ddrives. However, because flash comes at a significant price premium, outright replacement of HDDs with flash only makes sense in situations in which capacity requirements are relatively small and performance requirements are high. Learn how deployment approaches—including hybrid storage arrays, server flash, and all-flash arrays—that combine the performance of flash with the capacity of HDDs can be cost effective for a broad range of performance requirements.
What is a workload-optimized system? Simply put, it is one that matches architecture to the needs it is purchased for. Systems performance is no longer defined only by the fastest processor or other leading benchmarks, but rather by the ability to deploy new services faster, with higher quality, and within financial objectives. Commoditization has led some to think that financial objectives will lead to Intel-based systems for all uses. In this Advisory, we show that this is not the case, and by way of example, we demonstrate how Power Systems can be less expensive for ongoing operational costs and initial outlay.
