Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.

Datenbankverarbeitung ist ein wichtiges Thema – in Bezug auf Ihr Unternehmen und in Bezug auf den schieren Umfang der Vorgänge. Unsere Tests mit dem Dell EMC PowerEdge R930 Server und dem Unity 400F All-Flash-Speicherarray führten zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Leistung des Systems bei OLTP Workloads mit einem HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9-Server mit 3PAR-Array vergleichbar ist, sich aber durch ein besseres Komprimierungsverhältnis auszeichnet (3,2:1 gegenüber 1,3:1). Ladevorgänge mit großen Datenmengen beendete das Dell EMC Unity 22 Prozent schneller als das HPE 3PAR. Dies kann weniger Aufwand für einen mit Data Marts betrauten Administrator bedeuten. Bei paralleler Ausführung von OLTP- und Data-Mart-Workloads übertraf das Unity-Array das HPE 3PAR im Hinblick auf verarbeitete Aufträge pro Minute um 29 Prozent.

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how t
Innovative ways to take your business efficiency and collaboration to the next level.
Across every industry, C-level executives are focusing on innovation and technology to improve the efficiency and performance of their businesses. Now more than ever they need to develop strategies that make their organizations relevant, memorable and competitive in an era where digital business transformation is not just a goal, it’s a continuous, speeding journey.
• Take advantage of new opportunities
• React to emerging threats and take advantage of new markets
• Cope with disruptive forces
Large companies have made considerable investments in video webcasting to their external audiences. Now they need to turn their attention toward internal communications—for reasons that can enhance
their competitiveness and bottom line. As companies undergo a digital transformation, the playing field becomes increasingly technology-democratized and fierce. In this climate, an organization’s employees are one of its most, if not the most, valuable competitive differentiators. And the same energy and focus that companies put toward reaching their external audiences needs to go toward reaching and engaging their employees.
Here’s where strong internal communications can pay big dividends. High-performing companies recognize the significant impact effective internal communication has on their business. Chief among the gains are:
• Increased productivity.
• Improved brand trust and company loyalty among employees.
• Increased company alignment within and between departments and remote loc
Mobile has become the first screen for consumers in terms of internet time spent. Hyperlocal location data is unique to mobile and provides a lot of new, valuable information about consumers.
Today’s sophisticated buyers demand more transparency in location data science, better campaign performance and ROI from attribution modeling. Finding the right partner that can help build the bridge between real-world consumer behavior and mobile programmatic advertising in a transparent way is essential.
To meet those challenges and address the demand for top quality location data, adsquare integrated a global database of HERE Places in April 2017. By leveraging HERE Places and overlaying raw location data of anonymous users with POI data points, adsquare is able to understand exactly what consumers are doing in the real world: what places they visit, when and how often.

Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
Read how companies such as Beam Suntory have redefined enterprise architecture and learn more about the way an integrated hyperconverged infrastructure can help you build the right infrastructure for the future.
Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as they do not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.
As IT demands mount, IT organizations simply no longer have the luxury of spending resources to verify every vendor promise. Systems just need to work, while delivering a future free from costly data migrations. As a response, IT vendors have begun to offer guarantees in performance, guarantees in data reduction rates, guarantees in data deduplication, or free upgrades. These programs, however, are often limited to a single storage or data protection product offering, typically with all-flash technology. Dell EMC solutions, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor goes one step further with a program that delivers a future-proof infrastructure promise that extends to its larger storage, hyperconverged, and data protection portfolio and provides support across both generational and architectural transitions.
It is now apparent that three specific technology advancements—non-volatile memory express (NVMe), NVMe over fabrics (NVMe-oF), and storage-class memory (SCM)—are transformative and will end up guiding the future of high-end data storage. Each of those technologies reduce I/O latency significantly.
However, organizations working to transform their data centers shouldn’t regard performance as the only end goal. Great performance is important because it increases an array’s ability to handle any workload intelligently, scale to meet unpredictable demand, and operate cost efficiently. The Dell EMC PowerMax powered by Intel® Xeon® processor is an impressive example of this type of modern storage architecture. It has been designed deliberately to maximize the speed of NVMe and by extension, offer transformational efficiency benefits and business value.
