DevOps cuts deep and wide through industries, company sizes, and technology environments. Yet, DevOps is never done — it’s about continual learning and improvement rather than an end state.
Puppet is here to help. We draw on the success stories and lessons learned at organizations that are already driving improved performance and better business outcomes with their DevOps initiatives.
This handbook captures five essential phases for mapping out a DevOps journey:
1. Build the business case for DevOps.
2. Address the biggest challenges to DevOps success.
3. Develop a performance-driven team structure.
4. Choose the right Tools and processes.
5. Plan your key implementation phases.

Download this white paper to learn the 8 ways by which outdated ERP systems hold back your business and how “version-less” cloud ERP can help eliminate costly upgrades, reduce IT infrastructure management and drive value with rapid implementation.
Regardless of the industry, there are several common trends that are reshaping the business landscape. Each one has had a profound effect on the ways companies develop products, bring them to market and compete against their rivals.
While there’s no hotter topic at the intersection of business and technology than AI, Avanade research shows that 88% of global business and IT decision-makers say they don’t know how to use AI, and 79% say that internal resistance limits their implementation of it. It doesn’t have to be this way. Human-centered AI, which focuses on augmenting the workforce to improve customer and employee experiences, can contribute directly to achieving business goals.
This point of view discusses the ways your organization can take advantage of a human-centered AI approach, including redefining jobs and creating a digital ethics framework.
This paper provides an overview of the changing dynamics in the business world that demand a new approach to IT infrastructure.

Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However,
the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase.
At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1
This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how
inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.
For many years small to midsize manufacturers and ERP software providers struggled with the notion that full system implementations included more complexity, not to mention cost, than could be incurred by organizations with limited resources. Fortunately, drastic improvements in price performance, enhancements to underlying technologies and introduction of new forms of delivery have made ERP solutions viable and affordable to manufacturing companies of all sizes.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
If you’re looking for your first ERP system or looking to upgrade from an existing system, the evaluation, selection and implementation process is a long-term strategic decision for your organization. This whitepaper will help you through the process.
The 2014 Mint Jutras ERP Solution Study collected more than 800 qualified responses. The purpose of this study was to investigate ERP goals, challenges and status and also to benchmark performance of ERP implementations.
Privileged user accounts—whether usurped, abused or simply misused—are at the heart of most data breaches. Security teams are increasingly evaluating comprehensive privileged access management (PAM) solutions to avoid the damage that could be caused by a rogue user with elevated privileges, or a privileged user who is tired, stressed or simply makes a mistake. Pressure from executives and audit teams to reduce business exposure reinforces their effort, but comprehensive PAM solutions can incur hidden costs, depending on the implementation strategy adopted. With multiple capabilities including password vaults, session management and monitoring, and often user behavior analytics and threat intelligence, the way a PAM solution is implemented can have a major impact on the cost and the benefits. This report provides a blueprint for determining the direct, indirect and hidden costs of a PAM deployment over time.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to Oracle Retail, have an active implementation project that is running or have an existing deployment in production. The same issue applies: You are making a significant investment in the technology and need to develop a reliable and efficient batch schedule.
If you’re new to Oracle Retail, you are no doubt embarking on a major project to improve your competitive position in the retail market. With that in mind, your goals will be to shrink the time-to-market for your retail implementation, lower the reliability risks associated with in-house developed solutions and improve the visibility and control of retail business processes.
