ESG recently conducted a quantitative research study to assess companies’ IT Transformation maturity. ESG found that operating a modern server environment, defined as an environment in which operations tasks are more automated than manual, led to a perception of cost parity with the public cloud. Nearly half felt their cost of compute was highly competitive with CSPs and another 48% felt it was generally comparable. This compares favorably to the 19% and 47% respectively among organizations running a legacy server environment. Download this solution brief from Dell EMC and Intel® to learn more.

In today’s markets, customer identities and the personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise. Managing these digital identities — from first registration and login to the later stages of the customer relationship — and extracting business value from the associated data are complex tasks, commonly referred to as customer identity and access management (CIAM).
When implementing a system to collect, manage, and utilize digital identity and customer data, companies have two basic choices: in-house development or buying a dedicated solution from a vendor specialized in CIAM (i.e., build vs. buy).
Read this white paper for an in-depth analysis of CIAM implementation options, including:
? Must-haves for a successful, enterprise-grade CIAM system
? Pros and cons of implementation options, ranging from in-house software development to commercial off-the-shelf solutions
? A real-world case study that illustrates the ROI of an effective CI
All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads.
This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.

Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.
Application Delivery Controllers understand applications and optimize server performance - offloading compute-intensive tasks that prevent servers from quickly delivering applications. Learn how ADCs have taken over where load balancers left off.
To achieve personalization at scale, brands need to develop a better understanding of each customer they interact with, and that’s all about combining all the data they collect from every available source into a single cohesive customer view. There is no way they can handle this task or manage all this data manually, which is why data management platforms (DMPs) rose to prominence. Today, companies are looking to build on this single customer view with a real-time understanding of their audience across every digital channel, marking the next phase on the maturity ramp for DMPs.

Understanding the inextricable link between safety, quality and productivity is a critical piece of knowledge for today's construction management professional. And it should be leverage at all stages of a projects, from planning to programming and through the execution of the work.
A proper task analysis will:
Account for all three elements: safety, quality and productivity
include input from site personnel
Include the information needed to make decisions on the site
Be a workable plan
Remember that once you accept safety, productivity and quality are inextricably linked, you begin to realise that the data you harvest from your various site reports, such as reports of near misses or the need for constant rework, may also be able to fill in the blanks and tell a story about the overall progress and productivity on a project as well.

Working on energized equipment is one of the more dangerous scenarios technicians face in the field. As a result, there’s been a concerted industry effort to improve the understanding of electrical shock and arc flash hazards. I believe one of the most important standards in this safety push is the restructured language within the 2018 edition of the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA’s) 70E “Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace.”
In the past, the standard addressed electrical hazards and risks holistically when considering energized electrical work. But today’s latest guidelines now identify hazards and risks independently and include recommendations for a thorough risk analysis that considers the hazard, the planned work task and potential human error. Together, the changes result in a clearer understanding of energized work and help reduce electrical incidents.

An increasingly tech-savvy workforce is changing the future of work and the workplace.
The workplace is now where your people are, not where they go – whether that’s the public space of a coffee shop or private space at home.
Working hours are no longer standard, dictated by the tasks to be done, not by the clock.
Work tools are no longer based only on workplace technology. The same cool features used in consumer devices, such as touch, are now required for workplace devices.
It’s this familiar, smart technology that keeps people, across the generations, happy, productive and engaged. This dynamic IT is the foundation for a smart workplace that will enable you to attract and keep top talent – and shape the future-ready enterprise, now.
"Principled Technologies executed four typical deployment and management scenarios using both HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS.
They found that HPE Synergy saved 71.5 minutes and 86 steps, and used four fewer tools compared to Cisco UCS. In a hypothetical 200-node datacenter, that’s a total of 9 work weeks, or just over 2 months’ time savings on routine tasks."

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.
In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.
