There’s some banter about IBM Power Systems not being optimized to
run Oracle software. That simply isn’t true. In fact, IBM has engineers
on-site at Oracle working side-by-side with them to enable, optimize,
certify, and continually deliver solutions to our tens of thousands of

Since SAP introduced its in-memory database, SAP HANA, customers have significantly accelerated everything from their core business operations to big data analytics. But capitalizing on SAP HANA’s full potential requires computational power and memory capacity beyond the capabilities of many existing data center platforms.
To ensure that deployments in the AWS Cloud could meet the most stringent SAP HANA demands, AWS collaborated with SAP and Intel to deliver the Amazon EC2 X1 and X1e instances, part of the Amazon EC2 Memory-Optimized instance family. With four Intel® Xeon® E7 8880 v3 processors (which can power 128 virtual CPUs), X1 offers more memory than any other SAP-certified cloud native instance available today.
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
Bell Canada began an initiative to provide desktop solutions at reduced costs. With 8,000 call center agents, Bell Canada faced hardware attrition and rising costs. Streamlining systems, facilitating outsourcing and increasing capabilities to telecommute would reduce costs while improving service. This would require creating customized workstations for users. Bell Canada approached VMware Partner CGI Group Inc., which provides end-to-end IT and business process services, for a solution.

The old model of IT involved deploying more of everything just to keep up with demands. However, IT departments that are able to deliver solutions for business needs and support business goals have moved beyond managing siloed systems. Adopting a more efficient model of IT service and systems is the key to freeing IT to improve business operations.
Reaching that level of efficiency through “do-it-yourself” efforts requires an immense amount of time and expense up front. What if someone has already pre-engineered, pre-tested, and optimized a perfect solution for your IT needs?
See the difference a converged system can make.

The proliferation of consumer touch points has created a significant operational challenge for retailers, making it difficult to achieve consistency in product content, pricing, promotions, and inventory availability across multiple sales channel. This white paper from Oracle Retail discusses how the consolidation of omni-channel merchandising and inventory information, combined with the support of efficient transaction systems to move products in alignment with consumer demand, is no longer optional, but rather a modern retailing necessity.
Current Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions have optimized heavily for complete customization, leaving customers with full flexibility in designing rules and workflows. The problem is that it takes these solutions too long to deploy, at too high a cost, and rarely do they deliver on the ROI that was originally anticipated. Okta believes there is a better way, and a way to reach a much broader set of organizations, by building a cloud-based IGA product that is optimized for out-of-the-box capability and is easily configurable. Read this white paper to learn the four key feature areas.

The key to delivering profitable projects right from the start is being able to quote them accurately. Bidding on, and deploying scarce resources to a project that could not be delivered profitably is a recipe for failure. Through PSA solutions, top performing consulting firms can more accurately estimate job costs to determine profitability. Using analytics and lessons from past projects, this will enable smarter decisions on which projects should be bid on so that the project portfolio can be fully optimized. Further, this information can be refreshed mid-project so that changes can be made in an agile manner, and projects that are going off the rails can be steered back towards profitability.
Clinical decision support solutions are critical to delivering quality care, but how do you know which tools are most effective? In this video, David Bordewyk, national director for clinical solutions at Truven Health, explains five considerations for evaluating current or prospective solutions. First, the tool should provide evidence-based, actionable recommendations. Learn how to determine whether that’s the case, as well as how to identify tools that provide comprehensive information, information that’s consistent, and information that’s easy to find and access. Additionally, the tool should provide access from multiple types of devices and the vendor should offer ongoing user training and support.
If your business is like many other
organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure
and manage cost, while at the same
time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance
framework to allow enterprises to
develop and maintain a fully optimized,
and secure environment. The resulting
framework will be tailored to your
organization’s specific business and
compliance needs, as every enterprise
is different. This guide will introduce you
to the components of this necessary
Azure Foundational Governance Design.
The old office concept is dead. Today’s workspaces have evolved. Modern offices leverage technology to connect their workforce to their organization’s mission, drive productivity and streamline the employee and visitor experience.
