When it comes to delivering digital content, downtime isn’t the only concern. Today a poor user experience can be just as damaging as an outage. According to Limelight research, 78% of people will stop watching an online video after it buffers three times, and the majority of people will not wait more than 5 seconds for a website to load.
Organizations looking to deliver great digital experiences for their customers often choose to deliver that content using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). Using multiple CDNs to deliver these digital content experiences promises even greater levels of availability and performance. But it brings with it a host of questions. In this paper we’ll explore the 5 things you should know about multi-CDN in order to determine if it might make sense for your business.

Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.
Der Eintritt von NetApp in den Hyperkonvergenzmarkt ist seit Langem überfällig, und die Lösung wird bei den wichtigsten Kunden des Unternehmens große Wellen schlagen. IDC ist der Meinung, dass die Entscheidung von NetApp für die Technologie von SolidFire als Grundlage der HCI beweist, dass es verstärkt auf die neue Generation von Speichertechnologien setzt, die den digitalen Wandel ermöglichen. Die Integration mit Data Fabric zeigt, dass NetApp fähig ist, seine Vision für die hybride Cloud und den Datenverkehr in all seine Lösungen einzubringen, damit Kunden ihre Pläne für eine hybride IT nahtlos vorantreiben können. Schließlich deuten die flexiblen Skalierungsmöglichkeiten darauf hin, dass NetApp nicht einfach in aller Eile ein „Me-too“ Produkt auf den Markt bringen, sondern vielmehr ernsthaft auf die kostenbezogenen Herausforderungen eingehen wollte, denen sich HCI-Kunden gegenübersehen.
Interest in machine learning has exploded over the past decade. You see machine learning in computer science programs, industry conferences, and the Wall Street Journal almost daily. For all the talk about machine learning, many conflate what it can do with what they wish it could do. Fundamentally, machine learning is using algorithms to extract information from raw data and represent it in some type of model. We use this model to infer things about other data we have not yet modeled. Neural networks are one type of model for machine learning; they have been around

Account-based marketing (ABM) is the latest strategy those folks are trying to sell you.

Only this time, it really works.

Today’s consumers are demanding: they have become more unforgiving of a poor customer experience and expect interactions on their desktop and mobile devices to be responsive, intuitive,
and easy to use. Marketers understand that delivering the most relevant experience is the key to gaining continued satisfaction and loyalty from their digital consumers. Oftentimes, however, when it comes to marketing to consumers there are two dynamics. On one hand you have what consumers say they want out of a customer experience. On the other hand, there is what they actually receive. What they want are experiences that are personalized, contextually relevant, and consistent— regardless of online or offline channel or lifecycle stage. What they too often get, however, are experiences that are disconnected, not contextually relevant, and inconsistent across channels and lifecycle stages.
The role of IT is fundamentally changing from a cost-efficient enablement technology to a more strategic element of the enterprise. For companies born before the digital era, IT is a key player on their path to digital transformation; for more recent businesses designed with technology at their core, IT represents a foundational pillar on top of which everything else is built.
With this shifting role, IT’s decades-long emphasis on TCO is being eclipsed by a new-found focus on security and automation. Whether it’s the continuous risks posed by a dynamic threat landscape, the threat of digital disruption, or an inability to keep pace with the latest trends, virtually every enterprise needs to be more agile. And, with the continued evolution of compute, storage, and applications, networks have been exposed as a bottleneck to change.

When shoppers are ready to checkout at the grocery store, the last thing they want is a long wait time at the cash register. In order to meet the high expectations of today's customer, you need to keep checkout lines moving with the most efficient handling of every transaction. This means that cashiers need to be able to instantly capture bar-codes, even ones that are damaged or dirty. They need to quickly weigh produce without spending precious time positioning and re-positioning it on scale to ensure the capture of accurate weight - and cost.
In un contesto dove le imprese cercano di replicare le modalità agili di sviluppo delle Internet company e di innovare in mercati altamente concorrenziali, lo sviluppo di applicazioni è diventato sempre più complesso. La grande mole di codice sorgente monolitico tradizionalmente alla base delle applicazioni aziendali rendono difficile avviare rapidamente nuovi servizi. Lo sviluppo distribuito e settorializzato e la distribuzione geografica dei team di sviluppo e di operations portano a problemi di allineamento aziendale. A tutto ciò si sommano le aspettative crescenti degli utenti, che rendono necessari un dimensionamento efficace e un monitoraggio costante delle distribuzioni per assicurare ai clienti prestazioni elevate e un’esperienza uniforme. E naturalmente, il tutto deve essere realizzato assicurando una disponibilità continua dei servizi.

The shift from a product- to a service-driven economy—mixed with an uncertain economic climate—has given finance teams the opportunity to become strategic business partners capable of shaping and guiding organisational decision-making. This partnership is only possible by creating a deeper understanding of the contextual factors that influence revenue and profit and loss, and making this analytical data available to the right stakeholders when they need it. That requires a fundamental change in the way finance teams think about technology.

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.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.

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.
The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. It’s fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron-owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while they’re on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far-fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives.

Marketing as you know it will never be the same. There’s a fundamental shift in relationships between brands and customers—fueled by smartphones, social media, and today’s
always-on, always-connected mentality. Marketers have access
to more customer data (big data) than ever before. But the quantity of data only matters if you’re smart about using it—to power 1:1 customer journeys.
