Dans un monde des affaires dynamique où les applications et les données sont utilisées en dehors des frontières traditionnelles de l’entreprise, le service informatique doit répondre aux besoins de l’entreprise aussi bien que de ses salariés mobiles. De l’agilité de l'activité à l’efficacité des salariés, les entreprises de tous les secteurs cherchent en permanence à améliorer la productivité. L’informatique a pour mission de gérer l’infrastructure, la sécurité et le contrôle des accès d’une entreprise, tout en soutenant les initiatives destinées à favoriser son agilité et sa croissance, et de veiller à la productivité des salariés.
Managing infrastructure has always brought with it frustration, headaches and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights and weekends dealing with problems that are disruptive to their applications and organization and manually tune their infrastructure. And, the challenges increase as the number of applications and reliance on infrastructure continues to grow.
Luckily, there is a better way. HPE InfoSight is artificial intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents problems across the infrastructure stack and ensures optimal performance and efficient resource use.
IT complexity has rapidly grown with more applications, users, and infrastructure needed to service the enterprise. Traditional remote access models weren’t built for business models of today and are unable to keep up with the pace of change. Read this paper to understand how remote access can be redefined to remove the complexity, meet end-user expectation and mitigate network security risks.
The need to bridge the gap between traditional IT services and cloud application delivery is vital. This HPE Pointnext blueprint guide examines the critical global business services and IT technology best practices for enabling cloud-native applications—from DevOps practices to underlying infrastructure. The blueprint helps IT teams accelerate the development and delivery of cloud-native applications.
Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical
business analyses that provide far greater insight into
the business and how to maximize results. However,
these high-value applications that use the latest
software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure,
as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand
more compute resources than legacy applications.
Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the
present and future needs of the organization.
Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as
businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs,
systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some
hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning
require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be

Enterprise IT is in the throes of a fundamental transformation from a careful builder of infrastructure that supports core enterprise applications to a lean and lively developer of business-enabling applications powered by infrastructure.
But why is this change happening now at all, and why now? Read this paper to find out more.
Now there's an innovative new way to move enterprise applications to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and trade-offs. It's called multi-cloud storage, and it's an insanely simple, reliable, secure way to deploy your enterprise apps in the cloud and also move them between clouds and on-premises infrastructure, with no vendor lock-in. Multi-cloud storage allows you to simplify your infrastructure, meet your service-level agreements, and save a bundle.
In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.
The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
Businesses in every sector are increasingly reliant on applications to handle everything from
back-end operations to the delivery of new products, services, and customer experiences.
That is why infrastructure system availability and the elimination of unplanned downtime
are more important than ever before. Recent research has shown that the average cost of an
hour of downtime is about half-a-million dollars,1
and this will only increase with the continued
digitization of industries.

Your data center struggles with competing requirements from your lines of business and the finance, security and IT departments. While some executives want to lower cost and increase efficiency, others want business growth and responsiveness. But today, most data center teams are just trying to keep up with application service levels, complex workflows, and sprawling infrastructure and support costs.
Hyperconverged infrastructure is radically shaking up the IT landscape, creating huge operational and economic benefits. Tier 1 applications such as Exchange, SQL Server, Oracle and others are among the many beneficiaries of this new generation of infrastructure. However, there are many vendors jumping on the market bandwagon, and not all systems that are marketed as hyperconverged really fit the criteria. IT organizations need to do their homework to ensure they are selecting true hyperconverged solutions.

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.
