With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential. Identity management problems such as controlling who is granted access to which applications and data and how to control access to these applications leveraging on premise directories such as Active Directory, have become increasingly important. Single Sign-On and user management solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.

As the business case for Software-as-a-Service (Saas) and other cloud computing models solidifies, more companies are incorporating cloud computing into their IT programs. However, the legal, regulatory, and ethical requirements of data security must be adhered to regardless of where the information is housed. The best SaaS providers offer strong authentication systems, user activity auditing tools, and real time usage reporting to maintain the highest level of control over sensitive and confidential data.
In this 11-page white paper, Intralinks provides tips and questions to ask prospective providers about their security standards and practices, software reliability and uptime, and the availability of reporting and audit trails.
With software as a service (SaaS) you are integrating an external service, hosted by an external party, with your internal systems. The SaaS integration is a matter of connecting the clouds and well articulated interfaces defining the data that is traveling back and forth. With the right integration strategy, SaaS integration can be simple, straightforward, and easy. Moreover, it can position your IT organization to effectively leverage SaaS and migrate from one SaaS solution to another to avoid vendor lock-in. Read this information white paper to understand the things to consider when developing your integration strategy.
It has been said that you can’t manage what you can’t measure, and you must measure what really matters. New service delivery models for IT service management, such as software as a service (SaaS), as well as emerging communications channels for support that include social media, will require some changes to the way you traditionally measure the effectiveness of your services. That’s why you should reexamine your service metrics as you begin to rely more heavily on SaaS, social media, and a more services-oriented approach to IT delivery.

This white paper examines the economics of deploying Red Hat's Storage Server. Based on GlusterFS, a distributed file system that Red Hat acquired as part of Gluster, Red Hat Storage Server is ushering in a new era of software-based storage (also known as software-defined storage by many suppliers) solutions. Such solutions leverage commodity x86-based hardware from server vendors and a distributed shared nothing architecture that allows businesses to build out a service-based storage infrastructure in an economically feasible manner.
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN) must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or branc
Service virtualization enables development and test teams to simulate and model the dependencies of unavailable or limited services and data.
Voke conducted a survey of 505 participants from technology and non-technology companies to explore their use of service virtualization and its results. Organizations using service virtualization experienced fewer defects, reduced software cycles, and increased customer satisfaction.
The 2015 Service Virtualization Market Snapshot™ REPORT by Voke Research provides real-world data to help you justify the investment in service virtualization.
Traditional enterprise performance management solutions were designed for applications running inside the corporate network and are unable to provide visibility beyond the corporate network perimeter. With the rapid adoption of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications by enterprises, these performance management solutions that are completely blind to issues outside the enterprise, are unable to help IT teams troubleshoot performance problems with the SaaS applications.
Der Siegeszug des Cloud Computing prägt längst die Art und Weise, wie Rechenzentren miteinander vernetzt sind. Der architektonische Ansatz, der den Netzwerken zunächst die fehlende Agilität und Schnelligkeit verleihen sollte, heißt Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Jetzt geht es um die Frage, wie das WAN so optimiert werden kann, dass es den dynamischen Anforderungen von Cloud-Anwendungen und -Diensten gerecht wird. Der Trend zu SD-WAN ist eine vergleichsweise junge Marktentwicklung, der die Einführung hybrider WAN-Architekturen voranging.Dieses Dokument bietet eine weltweite Marktprognose für SD-WAN-Produkte und -Services bis 2020. Die Ergebnisse im Überblick.
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
