Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.

In an industry driven to deliver alpha, where might financial services firms find
opportunities when investing in application innovation?
The answer is data.
Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better.
Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before
the competition is better. That’s how data delivers alpha.
Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202
Read this white paper to see how end-to-end solutions from Dell combine Microsoft Windows Server® 2012 “Cloud Operating System” and a new generation of Microsoft business applications on flexible, scalable, power-efficient, virtualization-ready infrastructure
More than 23 million servers in the world are still running on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system, making it the most popular engine for serving information and applications globally for over a decade. But, starting in July 2015, Microsoft will no longer provide basic support for it.
Migrating your enterprise to a modern Microsoft® Windows® operating system is a complex process that can strain IT resources. That’s why Dell is focused on helping customers meet the deadline of the decade: On 14 July 2015 support for Windows 2003 will cease. The strategic value to efficient Windows migration is application, hardware and deployment readiness.
Technology is moving fast and your data center needs to keep up so your business can thrive. Migrating to the latest platforms and solutions, such as Windows® Server® 2012 R2, lets you take advantage of its virtualization advancements and tap into the Microsoft cloud OS. Combined with unique innovations featured in Dell server, storage and networking solutions, you can do more than modernize your IT — you can transform it.

Desktop and application virtualization have steadily gained ground to address a broad range of use cases across organizations of all sizes. According to ESG research, over the past few years, desktop virtualization has consistently risen to be included among the five most commonly-identified IT priorities, alongside such perennial corporate objectives as fortifying cybersecurity and managing data growth.

Cloud has become a crucial foundation for digital transformation (DX) initiatives and is shaping the IT strategy of enterprises today. Companies are extending their IT infrastructure into the cloud for running business-critical applications, developing new applications, and delivering new cloud-based services. Applications are the lifeblood of modern enterprises. They are the foundation on which businesses maintain their existing revenue streams while examining ways to create new ones. A sound application strategy is a must for frms to be successful in expanding their competitive differentiation in the digital economy. Operating systems (OSs) provide a common foundational layer that enables IT to run current and new generations of applications in traditional IT environments, on its own private cloud, and in public clouds and utilize a variety of computing options such
as bare metal, virtualization, and containerization. The increased reliance of IT on the cloud has accelerated the
The report highlights the key considerations associated with simplifying application deployments through application virtualization and automating desktop provisioning and management through desktop virtualization.
Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab
Customers looking to cloud technologies for better application agility and more efficient support of their entire IT operations are finding that broader use of virtualization across hardware is fundamental to achieving these goals.
A new wave of application workloads and associated data traffic - related to virtualization, cloud, mobility, analytics, and social media — have placed unprecedented strain on the datacenter network and forced commensurate architectural and operational changes.
The identity and access management challenges that exist in the physical world - identity management, application security, access control, managing sensitive data, user activity logging, and compliance reporting - are even more critical in the virtual environments that are growing in use as IT seeks to streamline its operations and reduce operating costs. However, security risks are increased due to the nature of the virtualization environment and IT should seek to extend their security solutions from the physical server environment to the virtualization environment as seamlessly as possible.
