In such a competitive business market, retaining the best talent is crucial. Knowing what makes them want to walk out the door is the first step in keeping them. The good news is that business leaders recognize the peril they face - and the need to do something about it. In a recent survey, 45% said they fear becoming obsolete in three to five years; 73% agree on the business need to prioritize technology, and 66% are planning to invest in IT infrastructure and digital skills leadership. However, investment without strategy is unlikely to succeed. Because innovation comes from people, investment must foster human creativity. Investment in technology that enables workers to address new challenges in new ways will give rise to new business initiatives, happier customers, and superior corporate financial performance.

Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process. However, as improvements have been made with server technology, storage technoless continuity, and improving business agility. VMware provides an architecture for server adminiogy has become the bottleneck. Legacy storage solutions can’t keep pace with thousands of virtual machines demanding maximum IOPS along with high bandwidth at the lowest latency. Infinidat’s InfiniBox removes the storage bottleneck for VMware environments. The InfiniBox enterprise storage array delivers faster-than-all-flash performance, high availability, and capacity density at petabyte scale. This Infinidat white paper is written for VMware and storage administrators to introduce them to the integration capabilities of the InfiniBox for VMware.
Infinidat has developed a storage platform that provides unique simplicity, efficiency, reliability, and extensibility that enhances the business value of large-scale OpenStack environments. The InfiniBox® platform is a pre-integrated solution that scales to multiple petabytes of effective capacity in a single 42U rack. The platform’s innovative combination of DRAM, flash, and capacity-optimized disk, delivers tuning-free, high performance for consolidated mixed workloads, including object/Swift, file/Manila, and block/Cinder. These factors combine to cut direct and indirect costs associated with large-scale OpenStack infrastructures, even versus “build-it-yourself” solutions. InfiniBox delivers seven nines (99.99999%) of availability without resorting to expensive replicas or slow erasure codes for data protection. Operations teams appreciate our delivery model designed to easily drop into workflows at all levels of the stack, including native Cinder integration, Ansible automation pl

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
Culture has become one of the most important business topics of 2016. CEOs and HR leaders now recognize that culture drives people's behavior, innovation, and customer service: 82 percent of survey respondents believe that "culture is a potential competitive advantage." Knowing that leadership behavior and reward systems directly impact organizational performance, customer service, employee engagement, and retention, leading companies are using data and behavioral information to manage and influence their culture.
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
