ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage.
Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.

Most organizations possess considerable intellectual property. Unfortunately, that information is useless unless employees know how to find it. The time that staff members spend searching for data, often fruitlessly, represents a real cost to
organizations. In some instances, when employees can’t find the information they’re looking for, they end up duplicating work. Archiving tools with powerful index and search capabilities can help maximize the value of intellectual property.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
Accountants typically spend a great deal of time in the compilation of ?nancial statements for compliance purposes and for
measuring the historical performance of a company. However, all of the data in the balance sheet and income statement is
generated from historical information in the accounting system.
To be useful in helping to improve the ?nancial performance of a company, the raw ?nancial data needs to be distilled into
useful information so that it can be used in making strategic decisions.

Did you know that sales reps typically waste up to 16 hours per week on non-selling tasks?
If your sales team is spending too much time on non-selling tasks, logging sales activities to Salesforce, hunting for customer information and documents, or copy-pasting data between separate systems, they might resist the rise of mobile CRM solutions like Salesforce1.
However, it’s important to figure out how to enable these teams in the field, as 55% of salespeople will access sales applications exclusively through smartphones or tablets by the end of 2016. It’s not surprising that salespeople will increase their use of mobile apps 125% from 2015-2017.
In this whitepaper from Tact, you’ll learn 1) common challenges facing field sales teams, 2) a framework for thinking about mobile sales productivity, 3) essential characteristics for evaluating mobile sales solutions, and 4) key trends in mobile sales.

Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business.
Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

"Ransomware is top of mind for many organizations’ leaders as their organizations face the potentially disastrous aftermath of successful attacks.
ESG has surveyed IT leaders and organizations to find out how big of a problem ransomware is, what are the business consequences of downtime caused by these attacks, and which are some of the best practices and capabilities organizations need to apply to be protected.
According to the ESG research, nearly two-thirds of surveyed organizations across North America and Western Europe experienced a ransomware attack at some point last year, with 22% reporting weekly attacks. The attacks have helped make cybersecurity a target of IT investment, and spending is accelerating.
What’s needed to fend off this epidemic are best practices and tools to:
Prevent or at least mitigate attacks
Protect data and backup data
Use of cloud computing services continues to grow rapidly as organizations migrate business applications and data to cloud-based software, platform and infrastructure services. Gartner estimates 2017 will see growth of 18% in spending on public cloud services and that cloud adoption will infuence more than 50% of IT spending through 2020.
Deloitte Global predicts that by the end of 2022 more than half of all IT spending will go to IT-as-a-service providers. In the 2016 edition of this survey, 56% of the security professionals responding said limitations on access to collect incident response data and evidence for forensic analysis was a key challenge to securing the cloud. Sixty-two percent said they were concerned about unauthorized access by outsiders, and 59% said they worried about access by other cloud tenants. Of the 10% who reported being breached, half blamed stolen credentials or compromised accounts.

Companies spend millions of dollars every year on building data warehouses, buying business intelligence (BI) software tools and managing their analytic processes in the hope of gaining consumer insight and winning market share. Yet, many companies fail to realize the full benefits of their technology investments because they are hamstrung by the layers of expertise and the complexity of technology tools needed to integrate various data warehouses and associated tools within their existing analytic environments. Since analysis is only as good as the accessibility, timeliness and accuracy of the information being analyzed, the interoperability of any data warehouse with any analytic environment is essential to achieving insightful, actionable analysis and making better decisions.

CIOs today are being called upon to interpret business strategy and priorities, then add value through information technology initiatives. At a time when "critical to the business" translates to "mission-critical IT", how do you ensure end-to-end availability and reliability of the IT resources that enable your company’s essential business processes.
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.
As organizations look for more ways to increase productivity and profitability, human resources departments are being asked to provide more strategic input to executives. Doing so requires tools that improve access to timely, accurate information for enhanced business decision making. If you don’t have a human resource management system (HRMS), HR can end up spending too much time on repetitive day-to-day tasks like paperwork while struggling to deliver meaningful workforce insights. The right HR management software can help the HR team increase control over employee data, optimize productivity, and take employee engagement to the next level, so you can deliver the future workforce your organization needs to succeed. This white paper discusses the five areas to keep in mind when evaluating solutions to find an HRMS that’s a good fit for your business.
