If you’re in the middle of a finance transformation initiative, then you’re not alone. Leaders at enterprise and mid-size finance and
accounting organizations alike are reviewing their current processes, technology, and talent, to build their blueprints for change. With the rise of broader digital transformation projects, finance organizations are first looking to upgrade their own operating models. The truth is that finance transformation is a journey, not a destination. Many finance organizations have already embarked on it, driving down costs, whether through enhancing shared services centers, or applying more centralization, standardization, and automation. Yet for many, the greater opportunities lie ahead: providing better insight to the broader organization, shedding low-value workloads that hold the team back, and revamping ingrained legacy accounting tasks that create risk. Wherever you are today, there are real opportunities to move the dial away from the status quo.
AWS supports healthcare organizations with HIPAA Eligible Services and the AWS Healthcare Compliance program. AWS products and services are being used by many customers that handle electronic patient health information (PHI) to build solutions that meet HIPAA and HITRUST regulatory requirements for cloud-based workloads.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how AWS HIPAA Eligible Services can help you build secure workloads to handle PHI in compliance with HIPAA and HITRUST standards. AWS Healthcare experts will be joined in this webinar by AWS Partner Network (APN) Partners ClearDATA and Cloudticity.
"Today’s technology advances at a fast rate. Attempting to adopt modern architectures can uncover a knowledge gap with developers, who might be unfamiliar with new architecture patterns and frameworks. This includes adopting cloud-native architectures to help with greater efficiency and cost benefits.
TIBCO’s integration solutions helps enable you to create an environment that simplifies the building of cloud-native applications, with support for modern architectures, such as microservices, event-driven APIs, serverless, and edge deployment.
Download this solution brief to see how you can help accelerate your development on AWS cloud by:
• Helping reduce your costs with modern application microservices and functions
• Seamlessly migrating your integration workloads to Amazon Elastic Container Service using out-of-the-box migration utilities
• Connecting your cloud, on-premises, and edge data sources, regardless of data formats "
In time, containers will be the means by which all workloads are deployed on server platforms. It makes too much sense. Constructing fake machines around virtual workloads, just to make them portable across servers, was not the architecturally rational thing to do. It was the expedient thing to do, because cloud platforms had not yet evolved to where they needed to be.
This book presents a snapshot of the emerging approaches to container monitoring and distributed systems management that engineers and their customers are building together.
"Visibility and control of endpoint devices are critical to securely manage your workloads in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment. Ideally, teams want to gain real-time visibility and control without having to deploy an additional agent onto the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance. They want a tool that allows them to span physical, virtual and cloud environments of their existing on-premises endpoints and Amazon EC2 instances.
CrowdStrike® Falcon Discover™ platform allows you to identify unauthorized systems and applications in real time and quickly remediate issues, ensuring the integrity of your data.
Download this datasheet to learn the key benefits of cloud-native CrowdStrike Falcon Discover, including:
• Visibility and control over their endpoints whether they are running on-premises or as Amazon EC2 instances
• The ability to scale easily to match the dynamic nature of Amazon EC2 instances
With the growth of unstructured data and the challenges of modern workloads such as Apache Spark™, IT teams have seen a clear need during the past few years for a new type of all-flash storage solution, one that has been designed specifically for users requiring high levels of performance in file- and object-based environments. With FlashBlade™, it addresses performance challenges in Spark environments by delivering the consistent performance of all-flash storage with no caching or tiering, as well as fast metadata operations and instant metadata queries.
This whitepaper looks to address the Top 3 challenges your team faces when building in the cloud and what it means for your business.
Although the capabilities and cost of select SecOps solutions have kept pace with the widespread adoption of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, many organizations try to protect their expanding cloud workloads without the proper support.
Hybrid cloud security is a hot topic, especially with the massive growth of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure™ and Google Cloud. With the emergence of the hybrid cloud, where workloads are deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud, security professionals are constantly being challenged to evolve their security practices to adapt to this new architecture.
Trend Micro Hybrid Cloud Security, powered by XGen™, takes a blended approach. It combines multiple cross-generational threat defense techniques for protecting hybrid environments. When one technique isn’t effective against a given threat, another will step in to eliminate the threat.
Osterman Research wants to make it clear at the outset that we believe Microsoft Office 365 to be a robust and capable platform, one that will serve most organizations well. If your organization is using Office 365, we recommend you continue to do so. If you’re not using it, we recommend you consider it. Microsoft offers a large, varied and growing number of features and functions in Office 365, and at a wide range of price points that will satisfy different markets.
Decision makers evaluating the efficacy of Office 365 to meet their business requirements must be aware of its shortcomings in the areas of data protection, archiving, security, encryption, authentication and eDiscovery (among others) covering workloads like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Skype for Business, and Azure Active Directory. An awareness of these shortcomings enables decision makers to plan for the mitigations required to assure the proper business performance of Office 365.
Cloud computing and the "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend will impact the design of future datacenters and their supporting networks. To attain the kind of business agility that companies now demand, network infrastructure needs to provide the flexibility required by cloud application workloads and the changing traffic patterns fostered by BYOD. To make networks more agile, new approaches to network implementation need to be enabled. As these trends continue, application delivery controllers (ADCs) will be critical elements in the new network infrastructure. This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that F5 Networks' integrated scalable platform plays in this strategic market.

"Infrastructure and operations leaders often struggle to understand the role of cloud computing and to develop strategies that exploit its potential. I&O leaders should complete the prerequisites before making the technology decisions required for successful, service-centered cloud computing strategies.
Read the Gartner report to learn more about key recommendations:
Identify the cloud-computing-related IT services you will offer or procure.
Document the internal processes that will be affected by the identified cloud services.
Map applications and workloads to the associated cloud services."

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.
