Gartner predicts that by 2020, 90 percent of organizations will adopt hybrid infrastructure management capabilities. However, this isn’t easy. With a hybrid IT environment can come complexity, confusion, and even infrastructure fragmentation. And, if you leave this poorly managed, your users, business, and most of all customers will certainly start to notice. In this eBook, we’ll explore the evolution of the enterprise data center, impacts of cloud-powered digital solutions, and how to manage hybrid IT solutions.

The Android platform has quickly established itself as a dominant mobile OS for consumers. However, enterprise IT has been slower to adopt Android broadly due to lack of Enterprise Mobility Management capabilities in Android and fragmentation. But the recent release of Android Lollipop reduces fragmentation and when combined with MobileIron enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, gives IT the tools needed to easily manage and secure apps and content on all types of Android devices. This will accelerate adoption of Android devices within the enterprise.

THE INCREASING IMPORTANCE AND COMPLEXITY OF DIGITAL EXPERIENCES
Maintaining a strong digital presence is critical as digital experiences are now the front door for your brand. Websites,
mobile apps, and connected devices are all different ways for you to connect with your customers on a deeper level,
and foster a stronger relationship of trust and loyalty. While you now have a wide-open avenue to reach customers
more effectively, you also need to account for a whole new level of complexity, especially in the mobile space.
Millions of people can download the same mobile app and have entirely unique experiences. This is a result of how
fragmented the digital world has become. ScientiaMobile counted 45,000 different device profiles on the market
today, and estimates that this rate of fragmentation will only increase heading into the future.
On top of this variability is the wide range on contexts in which your customers can be relying on your mobile app
Consumers expect a seamless, high-quality experience in today’s mature app economy. They want brands to keep up with new technologies like geo-fencing and personalization, as well as the latest ecosystems like voice assistants and connected cars.
With this high bar for quality, QA organizations often struggle to keep up with:
1. Rapid Release Schedules
3. New Technologies (Voice, AI)
4. Geo-Awareness and Localization 5. Device Fragmentation
6. Unexpected Customer Use Cases
The cost of failure is high in QA. Time, money, and customer loyalty are all at risk when digital experiences don’t meet users’ high expectations.

Restaurant technologies have transformed drastically over the past decade, however there have been several misconceptions about the impact big data can have on restaurant operations. According to a Hospitality Technology study, only 23% of restaurants have confidence in overall tech innovation. When it comes to the state of technology many restaurants are still stuck with disconnected architecture, complex legacy systems, lack of visibility, and high maintenance costs.
These challenges ultimately intimidate restaurant operators to outdated systems and processes that significantly limit their business growth. This ebook looks at the four pressing challenges and presents one unifying solution.
The exponential growth in digital channels has given rise to the importance of digital marketing. But digital marketing isn’t just about the channel, it’s the mechanism by which people are creating and sharing experiences; engaging not only with each other, but with companies they do business with.
With such high channel fragmentation, making strategic decisions on audience, con¬tent and platforms is critical. Marketers need the capability to define their market, build outstanding content, tailor messaging and provide that messaging in the right medium – quickly!
Sign up for the webcast and you will learn: The strategic benefits of a robust information infrastructure for performance management, How to take immediate action if your operating reporting has data latency challenges, How to drive broader adoption in the business by addressing critical data challenges, Why the combination of IBM and Cognos, an IBM company, accelerates the delivery and quality of the information needed to drive business performance.
The focus for companies willing to tap into the growing mobile opportunities should be on moving from experimentation to the creation of a mobile business case and strategy, while recognizing that the challenges associated with fragmentation will persist.
Display marketers are eager to launch mobile campaigns. But they face challenges such as audience fragmentation, a chaotic vendor landscape, and myriad new technologies and devices. In order to navigate these challenges, we recommend that marketers focus on creating convenient mobile experiences by building mobile display campaigns that are simple, immediate, and contextually relevant to the section of their audience most likely to use them.
This paper presents the results of a Diskeeper Corporation study that examines the effects of disk fragmentation on virus scan time to verify and measure the magnitude of virus scanning speed improvement.
Tight IT budgets demand that desktop and laptop PCs remain in service well beyond their prime. But as these systems age, performance degrades. The culprit most often is file fragmentation. Download this paper to find out how Diskeeper can help your systems perform longer.
This document will explain the behavior and benefit of implementing Diskeeper defragmentation software with intricate modern hardware technologies such as RAID, NAS and SANs. SANs, NAS devices, corporate servers, and even high end workstations and multimedia-centric desktops characteristically implement multiple physical disk drives in some form of fault tolerant disk striping (RAID).
With continued expansion of organizational storage allocation requirements, the time required for file-based data backup also continues to increase yet the time allotted for this data backup remains constant, exposing a critical issue. Though backup software vendors continue making advancements in technology to speed up the process, disk fragmentation will continue to remain an unresolved issue that must be addressed on the file system level to solve this bottleneck.
In today's environment of bigger disks storing not only larger files but more files than ever before, the effects of fragmentation worsen markedly with each day's use. To keep up with same-day performance degradation, disks must be defragmented in real-time.
The size of today’s hard drives boggles the mind. Coupled with this surge in disk capacity is an explosion in file sizes. And multi-MB PowerPoints, MP3s and PDFs litter the hard drive. The problem is that drive I/O speed has not kept up the pace. As a result, it has developed into a serious bottleneck in system performance.
While there is little dispute among IT professionals regarding the impact of disk fragmentation on system performance, no independent guidelines exist to recommend the frequency of defragmentation across an infrastructure. This white paper will outline the results of testing, draw conclusions, and make recommendations regarding managing fragmentation across your infrastructure.
