Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.
The framework presented here is a way to avoid data dysfunction via a coordinated and well-planned governance initiative. These initiatives require two elements related to the creation and management of data:
• The business inputs to data strategy decisions via a policy
• The technology levers needed to monitor production data
based on the policies.
Collectively, data governance artifacts (policies, guiding principles and operating procedures) give notice to all stakeholders and let them know, “We value our data as an asset in this organization, and this is how we manage it.”
The positive impact of most
cost-cutting efforts is short-lived,
as individuals revert to past
behaviors and spending habits.
As normalcy returns, so can costs
and head count.
How do you keep the spirit alive?
How do you make cost
consciousness an organizational
capability and a shared mind-set,
rather than a bunch of rules that
are resented and resisted?
Look to the following strategic,
operational, organizational, and
cultural levers to help you
sustain the change.
As IT spend on cloud continues to rise, one survey of technical professionals estimated as much as 45% could be wasted. Is your organisation staying on top of expenditure?
Read this article to find out:
• why cloud costs can be so difficult to manage
• how to identify and execute wide-scale savings
• which five levers to use to manage costs – and the potential reductions each can deliver.

According to Accenture, identifying and influencing these profitability
levers is at the top of most CFO agendas today, as CEOs increasingly look to their finance chiefs for insights on where to invest in new initiatives that can boost top line and bottom line growth.
Restaurants are complex businesses with a simple aim: great guest experiences that keep customers coming back for more. In order to achieve this goal, stores must deliver on the promise of a great product and exceptional service.
There are a lot of ways to make the equation work and each brand has its own unique mix of ingredients that bring the whole operation together to create a recipe for profitability.
There are also elements of a successful restaurant that are consistent across any operation. Restaurant executives have long been on the hunt for this elusive lever (or combination of levers) that systematically drive performance regardless of conditions.
La disruption digitale, l’instabilité économique, les bouleversements politiques et la pénurie de compétences ont tous été désignés à un moment ou à un autre au cours des 2 dernières années comme la cause des échecs des entreprises ou tout du moins de leur perte de rentabilité ou de béné?ces.
The risk of cyber attacks and the cost of failure are increasing. Penalties associated with failure are only going to increase. And these challenges are compounded by increasing collaboration, use of cloud-based solutions, and an increasingly mobile workforce.

As it has been the trend over the last decade, organizations must continue to deal with growing data storage requirements with the same or less resources. The growing adoption of storage-as-a-service, business intelligence, and big data results in ever more Service Level Agreements that are difficult to fulfill without IT administrators spending ever longer hours in the data center. Many organizations now expect their capital expense growth for storage to be unstoppable, and see operating expense levers - such as purchasing storage systems that are easy to manage - as the only way to control data storage-related costs.
The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.
