"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."

Marketing is not getting more difficult because of data— it’s actually getting easier. In the old days you needed to guess who your audience was and plan in advance what you wanted to say and wait far too long to see if it worked. Those days are long gone—now you can determine EXACTLY who your audience is, deliver a relevant, personalized message in a nanosecond, and find out almost immediately whether it worked! You no longer have to live by the spray-and-pray method— you can be tactical in your delivery. Marketing today is data-driven and uses a wealth of insights and connection points to engage with consumers one to one.
Data about our customers and prospects gives us the ability to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time. That’s audience targeting, and it’s far deeper than demo targeting, even though targeting by demo is a nice place to start. That said, the sheer volume of data and technology can be overwhelming. Cut through the noise and tackle the ba
There is no easy way to establish the “going rate” for comparable services, because all services are differentiated by other forces, such as individual processes, brand equity, and features. If you’re going to price your services simply based on the competition, you’d better ensure you’re making an exact apples-to-apples comparison, which is easier said than done and not something we recommend. Consider instead, a model where your pricing is based on how much it truly costs you to perform one hour of service. In this eBook, we show you how to calculate your full hourly overhead burden–so you can set the right price for your IT services.

But wait, what exactly is engagement, and how does it differ from culture or the employee experience? This ebook uncovers what defines engagement and how it looks from different employee perspectives. Learn what it takes to create an agile approach to engagement – before it’s too late

A Zombie-apocalypse is not something that keeps most support teams paranoid about. After all, it isn’t something that happens every day.
But that is exactly what’s so scary about it?
Zombie attacks can stem out of pretty much anything, right from a barrel of toxic gas that was accidentally opened, to a Black Friday sale with deep discounts on the latest gadget.
And you can be pretty sure that the attack is going to start quick and grow big with very little warning. Unless your support team is ready when it strikes, you might wake up the next morning to find a burnt-up help desk, and a lot fewer customers.
So how can you can you get your customer support to be ready for the zombie apocalypse?
This guide will walk you through everything you can and should do to make your support team proactive before the zombies rise, effective during the attack, and heroes after.

Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments.
This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.
The Internet of Things can bring big benefits. But what exactly is IoT, and how are different industries taking advantage of it? This TDWI e-book explores in detail what IoT and the Industrial IoT (IIoT) do for retailers, the automotive industry, state and local governments working with utilities firms, and the manufacturing industry. Common themes include connectedness, data-driven insights, predictive capabilities and transformation.
Imagine an environment where business decisions drive application choices and policy, with no regard for infrastructure, where best practices are implemented based solely on business requirements—and a “guaranteed service level” means just that. The IT of the future will be an elaborate business operation unencumbered by past technology decisions, one capable of providing exact service levels to multiple constituencies while continually optimizing costs.

SQL is a critical skill for business intelligence. From accessing to transforming to reporting on data, SQL gives you the power to get the job done. It can help you discover exactly how your company is performing, what your customers are doing, or how people have reacted to your marketing campaigns.
Unfortunately, while SQL can tell you what has happened, it can’t tell you what will happen. What if you have questions like:
• How valuable is a lead based on company attributes and their behavior on our website? • How much MRR will we generate in the next 30 days? • Which customers are likely to churn next month?
En décembre2017, Dell a demandé à ForresterConsulting de mener une étude pour déterminer comment les organisations d'entreprises sont structurées en termes de services informatiques. L'étude a exploré deux types de profils technologiques, les contrôleurs numériques et les transformateurs numériques, ainsi que les tendances et défis rencontrés dans l'approvisionnement en ordinateurs. Les contrôleurs numériques sont souvent associés à l'approche descendante, la structure linéaire, et mettent l'accent sur la sécurité et l'exactitude. En revanche, les transformateurs numériques mettent l'accent sur l'innovation, s'orientent vers l'employé et le client, et donnent la priorité à la rapidité et la souplesse. En comprenant les deux groupes, les entreprises peuvent surmonter les défis qui découlent de la gestion du cycle de vie des ordinateurs. En investissant dans les outils de gestion des ordinateurs existants et en s'associant avec une entreprise spécialisée dans le déploiement et la gestion

Security leaders have been in front of boards and executive committees long enough to know that security metrics that simply portray statistics from monitoring tools, or count the number of malware attacks, add relatively little value to strategy and budget decisions. Protecting sensitive customer and company data shouldn’t be just a compliance obligation, it should be a business imperative. This is exactly why the right technology partners will help push security, risk, and compliance objectives forward.
In March 2019, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the evolving security trends and technology needed to protect and enable employees. Our study found that empowering employees while adhering to security protocols improves employee productivity. Forrester conducted an online survey of 887 senior business and IT decision makers to explore this topic.
