Many energy and natural resource (ENR) companies still rely on static, error prone data sources. Using static data in assumptions that are made on actual production costs, operating capacity, and yields is no longer sufficient to compete successfully in today’s market, a situation made more problematic given that the ENR industry faces reduced market prices for products, increased costs for operations and an onslaught of new competitors.

The business of IT has changed dramatically. An always-on, always-connected world means that competition is fiercer, customers are more demanding, and businesses need to innovate faster than ever. Companies can try to harness digital transformation by trying to do things the old way, but they will fall behind; the traditional IT operating model is fracturing under the digital demands of their customers, partners and employees.
This book will showcase:
-how digital transformation is affecting your business
-a roadmap to help you innovate faster, lower operational costs, and increase your IT capacity
-real-life case studies of companies who achieved great business outcomes through API-led connectivity
Innovative data-driven strategies are enabling organizations to connect with customers and increase operational efficiency as never before. These new initiatives are built on a multitude of applications, such as big-data analytics, supply chain, and factory automation. On average, organizations are now 53% digital as they create new ways of operating and growing their businesses, according to the Computerworld 2017 Forecast Study.
As part of this transformation, enterprises rely increasingly on multivendor, multicloud environments that mix on-premise, private, and public cloud services and workloads. This shift is causing enterprises to increase network capacity; 55% of enterprises in the Computerworld study expect to add network bandwidth in the next 12 months.

Traditional insurers are no longer safe with insurtechs challenging incumbents to rethink their business and operating models. This mass disruption creates increased pressure on IT to deliver intrinsic business value, including new services, customer touchpoints, and experiences. Successful insurance transformation requires rethinking the traditional IT operating model to allow IT to focus on creating reusable assets that empower lines of business. Doing so increases IT’s delivery capacity, making businesses more agile.

An overview of the challenges insurers are facing in the industry.
How a new IT operating model – API-led connectivity – allows IT teams to unlock data from legacy systems and drive reuse across the enterprise.
Strategies for using APIs to create a single view of the customer and build connected customer experiences.
HotSchedules needed an agile and scalable IT environment that could respond quickly to growth opportunities. The company deployed the Windows Server 2008 operating system with Hyper-V virtualization technology to consolidate its server environment, reduce costs, and maximize network performance. By hosting up to 19 virtual machines on each physical server, HotSchedules increased its growth capacity while cutting power costs 77 percent and enhancing the company’s competitive position.
The Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution provides design and implementation guidance for organizations looking to deploy wide area network (WAN) transport with a transport-independent design (TID), intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure encrypted communications between branch locations while reducing the operating cost of the WAN. IWAN takes full advantage of cost-effective transport services in order
to increase bandwidth capacity without compromising performance, reliability, or security of collaboration or
The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.
