Cloud has become a crucial foundation for digital transformation (DX) initiatives and is shaping the IT strategy of enterprises today. Companies are extending their IT infrastructure into the cloud for running business-critical applications, developing new applications, and delivering new cloud-based services. Applications are the lifeblood of modern enterprises. They are the foundation on which businesses maintain their existing revenue streams while examining ways to create new ones. A sound application strategy is a must for frms to be successful in expanding their competitive differentiation in the digital economy. Operating systems (OSs) provide a common foundational layer that enables IT to run current and new generations of applications in traditional IT environments, on its own private cloud, and in public clouds and utilize a variety of computing options such
as bare metal, virtualization, and containerization. The increased reliance of IT on the cloud has accelerated the
Container technologies have substantial benefits especially given the
need to isolate applications to increase service levels. Linux Containers (LXC) and Docker containers can be your best choice, depending on your use case.
By optimizing their on-premises IT
environments and moving processes
and workloads to the cloud, businesses
can reduce time-to-market, increase
agility, and minimize total cost of
ownership. Oracle’s Linux and
Virtualization offerings are designed to
help you easily optimize your current
on-premises environment, and offer a
clear path to cloud—so you can migrate
your workloads when the time is right.
Linux has become an important component of
the organization's infrastructure since initial deployment
around six years ago. The Linux infrastructure was first
used for classic edge-of-network workloads but has
evolved over time to take on increasingly sophisticated
and critical workloads. Today, it is considered a primary
workhorse for the company.
As in many organizations, Windows, with about 5,000
Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud services to speed innovation and drive cost savings. The most innovative IT organizations in these enterprises are shifting to software-defined “virtual data centers” that connect, aggregate, and configure public and private computing resources in unprecedented ways. These IT organizations use open private cloud infrastructure within a corporate data center or at a hosting site (managed cloud services) in conjunction with public cloud services to meet all their business requirements.

Business models are less durable than they used to be… [they] are subject to rapid displacement, disruption, and, in extreme cases, outright destruction. The basic rules of creating and capturing economic value were once very rigid. Companies tried to execute the same business models better than their competitors did. That doesn’t have to be the case anymore. Unlike product and service innovations, business-model innovations travel well from industry to industry

Hotels and resorts with function space may well have an opportunity to boost their
overall property revenue, given the escalating demand for function space and the
fact that many of them have already maximized the value of their guest rooms
through sophisticated revenue management capabilities. Success generally starts
with a next-generation technology solution that can empower sales and catering
personnel. Success also requires having in place the right organizational resources,
business processes and performance metrics.
Loyalty programs provide a framework to nurture guest relationships, offering recognition, perks and options to redeem rewards. Most importantly, they create guest profiles and transaction histories that yield the insights needed to foster what is demanded today: individualized guest interactions.
The ubiquitous nature of mobile devices can seemingly
diminish their value, making them a commodity
to be taken for granted. But their true power hasn’t
begun to be tapped — especially by hoteliers.
If seen as a gateway to operational efficiency, enhanced
guest experiences and, most importantly, a better bottom
line, mobility wouldn’t be overlooked. Which is exactly
why it’s time to view it through a different prism — or
risk being left behind by your competitors who will.
From planning a trip to selecting a hotel to commenting about the guest experience on Facebook, the travel lifecycle can be a meandering journey, filled with opportunities for consumers to engage with hospitality brands. The key for your enterprise’s success, of course, is making those moments count.
