"Managing infrastructure has always brought frustration, headaches, and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights, and weekends dealing with problems and manually tuning their infrastructure.
Traditional monitoring and support are too far removed from infrastructure, resulting in an endless cycle of break-fix-tune-repeat. Infrastructure powered by artificial intelligence, however, can overcome the limitations of humans and traditional tools.

Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.
Protecting your clients’ sensitive data is not optional. Data security is so important in accounting that suspicion alone leaves many firms to reject modern cloud software as new or unproven. However, the facts tell a different story. Read this revealing e-book for 13 security facts your organization needs to make the best decision for your clients:
• How built-in data encryption keeps your data safe
• Why more security pros are concerned with user behavior than cloud tools
• What your firm should know to utilize the cloud with confidence
There are myriad software products, from complete CRM platforms that offer analytics to standalone or add-on software products that focus solely on analytics. There are analytics apps that can be added to your existing CRM platform. Or there’s the option to outsource analytics to a growing number of service providers.
“The technologies are changing rapidly. There are a zillion startups offering either new tools or technologies, so it is kind of hard to navigate,”Mike Gualtieri, an analystfor Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., said in a recent webcast on analytics. “There isn’t just one platform that you’re going to need.
There’s a whole ecosystem of platforms.”
Having the right people on staff who know how to use the technology is equally important, analysts say. Analytics aren’t just for statisticians anymore—they’re used by sales, marketing and customer service teams in daily decision making.
Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive.
The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are
beginning to dominate the mobile management
conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been
made in providing the tools and solutions that offer
management and security for mobile devices; both for devices
the enterprise owns and those that employees own.
While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the
device, they have been lacking in some of the more
sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop
and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are
the robust DLP controls common in laptop management
Enterprise mobility management suites enable organizations to integrate and manage mobile devices in their IT infrastructures. End-user computing leaders must act amid rapid market changes to reach both short-term and long-term enterprise mobility objectives.
UEM is not limited to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart devices, broadly grouped as part of the IoT, will increasingly become included in UEM. Devices such as Apple TVs, printers and smartwatches are identifiable examples of IoT devices managed by EMM tools. However, not all IoT objects will fall under the realm of EMM tools. Some devices may be managed directly by manufacturers. Other types of devices will have proprietary management tools. And many devices will not need to be managed at all. However, it is clear that the diversity and number of devices will continue to grow, and IT organizations must be ready.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
Technology has had a truly transformative impact on the healthcare space. Thanks to innovations in technology, tools and their respective processes, the practice of treating patients has shifted from mostly reactive to proactive, enabling physicians and caregivers to approach healthcare in a more holistic fashion.
As part of that shift, hospitals, wellness centers and physicians’ offices are focusing on providing value over volume1, taking healthcare beyond the four walls of the facility and into patients’ homes, places of work and social centers. The concept of whole health is much easier to attain with technology such as artificial intelligence, analytics, wearables and mobile health (mHealth) apps, to name a few.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies—
specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and
manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency.
However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.
While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as
it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the
adoption of new tools and technology.
This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to
using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic
user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable
them to manage their health more easily. Providers want to provide new

As the volume of data coming into organizations – from both internal and external sources – continues to grow and makes its way across departmental systems in many different formats, there is a critical need to create a single, holistic view of the key data entities in common use across the enterprise. Master Data Management (MDM) aims to accomplish this goal. Not surprisingly, MDM has become a significant priority for global enterprises, with the market expected to triple from $9.4B to $26.8B by 2020 according to analysts.
The reality, though, is that while seemingly everyone is investing heavily in the tools to manage data, few are putting a great enough emphasis on the data itself. And that’s a problem. Poor data quality is said to be costing businesses $3.1 trillion annually – and that’s just in the US alone. The information being put into MDM tools must be mastered first and foremost.
The cost of labor can be managed effectively when restaurateurs are equipped with the right training, tools and processes.

Consumers equipped with smartphones expect fast, convenient and uniquely relevant shopping experiences in store and online. As a result, one-third of shoppers are not satisfied with the in-store experience, turned off by everything from chronic out-of-stocks to cookie-cutter products and marketing messages that speak to the masses, as opposed to them as individuals.
In turn, retailers are empowering front-line associates with tools designed to add newfound conveniences, such as locating inventory without having to leave a shopper’s side, to texting them curated product offers based on in-store and online buying patterns and preferences
These are just a few of the insights found in Zebra’s 10th annual shopper study, which surveyed nearly 7,500 consumers from North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East to gain a deeper understanding of shopper satisfaction and retail technology trends that are reshaping brick-and-mortar and online stores.
