Learn why replacing servers is often delayed. Confronted with competing business priorities, limited budgets and personnel, and a sense of comfort as current servers reliably hum along, delay is easy to rationalize. Yet, delays are not without risk and trade-offs. Cases in point are two circumstances that small and midsized enterprises should seriously consider and, in our opinion, initiate action now. Discover why the new era of cyber warfare aimed at exploiting hardware vulnerabilities and the End-of-Support for Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 means delaying server replacement leaves SMB IT open to risk.

As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

Skills shortages are keeping business leaders up at night.
In fact, nearly half of executives say this skills gap is a major concern for the future of their organization — yet only 3% are significantly increasing training budgets.
Why? Workplace learning is a difficult nut to crack. Organizations often struggle to reskill their adult workforces with hard skills because they’re taking the wrong approach.

No matter how you slice it, the most important thing businesses can do in turbulent times is increase their ability to adapt to change. Experts call this agility.
What many experts leave out, however, is that agility alone is not enough. Employees need resilience too.
Our research shows six personas hidden in almost every workforce — based on an employee’s levels of agility and resilience — and how to help each one manage stress amid change.

• See how many of your people are affected by change
• Provide strategies for those who are stressed and burned out
Help your people with what’s affecting their work and personal lives by analyzing these six workplac

company who is considering AI for its business. Instead, a more realistic analysis of the challenges and opportunities
at play is in order. In this white paper, we will analyze both sides of the AI issue and help you discover the right way to
approach your AI journey.
