Your information can be one of your greatest assets - helping you stay on top of regulatory requirements, close to customers, and ahead of the competition. Organizations that pay attention to their data will be the ones to survive and thrive. So how do you obtain a complete view of your information when it is scattered across silos? Or integrate data from structured and unstructured data sources? Or help reduce the risk of inaccurate reporting? And how do you manage your information more effectively to help keep costs from spiraling out of control?

Unlike traditional network architectures, software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) makes it possible to harness existing network technology to better align operations and business policies. While many companies identify a need to evolve to SD-WAN, they are not always convinced SD-WAN can deliver the necessary enterprise capabilities.
Join us for a webinar with Link-Connect to learn how they use Forcepoint NGFWs to deliver enterprise-class SD-WAN to manage more than 400 sites from a single management console.
In this webcast, learn how Forcepoint NGFW:
Simplifies operations. Management is easier with central management, visibility and hierarchical policies.
Saves investment dollars. Smarter use of capacity and the ability to visualize and prioritize traffic reduces connectivity costs.
Boosts business outcomes. Optimized capacity, increased security and ensured high availability

IT Managers: Reduce costs with enterprise ready environments. Take advantage of easy and flexible onboarding for business-ready virtual servers. Rapidly improve project set up and shorten development times. Find out how.
An increasing number of organizations are permitting employees to bring their own mobile devices into the workplace to be used for work purposes. While this practice may first appear to reduce enterprise mobility costs while increasing employee productivity, it also poses new risks and may actually increase costs if not properly managed. Know how to cost-effectively manage this Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) phenomenon.
Prompted by volatile markets and a troubled economy, the need to contain or reduce costs is key for small to medium size enterprises (SMEs). In the pursuit of cost reductions and in the struggle to sustain and grow revenue and profits it becomes more and more important to preserve the level of visibility that becomes elusive as SMEs grow in both size and complexity. Download this research now to learn more.
Pressures to reduce costs continue to outweigh all other business drivers impacting Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in 2009. ERP has become more than a necessary infrastructure; it is also a strategic weapon in streamlining and accelerating business processes - while providing visibility to those processes throughout the enterprise.

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and
compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended
ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote
locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide
increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common
distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture
(SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational

Networked storage is being deployed in combination with server virtualization by an increasing amount of organizations interested in - consolidation, reduced costs, improved flexibility and availability of mission-critical applications. This ESG Lab report presents the results of a mixed workload performance benchmark test designed to assess the real world performance capabilities of an IBM Storwize V7000 storage system and IBM x3850 X5 servers in a VMware-enabled virtual server environment. Download now to find out the results.
This ESG Lab Validation Report sponsored by HP + Intel examines a number of backup and recovery solutions and evaluates their ease of implementation as well as their ability to improve reliability and reduce costs.
This ESG paper outlines the considerations for architecting an efficient SAN data storage infrastructure with a focus on the NetApp solutions for increased utilization, improved performance and streamlined protection to reduce operational costs.
IBM has used the Storwize architecture to produce multiple storage systems across different usage segments to meet different customer needs. The ability to scale with a common underlying architecture has proven to deliver multiple benefits to IBM customers. Features developed for high-end enterprise systems now meet customer needs in other, more price conscious segments. The leverage from a common base for systems helps reduce development and support costs which are reflected in product costs for customers. The Storwize architecture also builds on Intel-based hardware, which provides continued advances with each new generation yet retains the same fundamental architecture. Customers also benefit from a storage architecture that provides a consistent experience across multiple products and generations.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest
In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
Improving access to core applications and data is just one of many mandates facing IT, along with improving collaboration, reducing administration costs and improving performance. Fortunately, shops running System z have an advantage. You can integrate and enhance your System z assets faster when you use the version 6.1 update to IBM WebSphere Portal on z/OS. Use it to quickly deploy business applications across the enterprise, reduce costs and increase flexibility with workloads centralized on System z.

As the trend of moving to the Cloud continues to flow from business function to business function, other trends are emerging. As organizations transform to eliminate complex functions, standardize and integrate systems to reduce costs, and minimize nonvalue add activities, they are challenging themselves to get the most from their investment. The shift from transactional to strategic, and from reporting to actionable and predictive analytics, positions companies for growth like never before. Many organizations look to break down silos, not only within their company but also within their industries, to share lessons and leverage efficiencies from others’ learnings. Our recommendation is to start by breaking down any silos that exist between finance, HR, and IT within your organization today—and discover what moving to cloud and truly adopting the SaaS lifestyle can do for your organization.
