Midmarket firms face many of the same data center security risks as their enterprise counterparts with far fewer resources at their disposal to mitigate them. Downtime, data theft, and regulatory non-compliance all pose existential threats to these organizations and as they drive for continuous innovation and advantage in an increasingly competitive landscape, they must ensure valuable data and IT assets are secure, protected, and available at all times. How can midmarket organizations succeed in the face of these challenging market dynamics? This Research Insights report shows that the success organizations have enjoyed varies greatly, and further that organizations enjoying the greatest success demonstrate a clear organizational commitment to prioritizing security and operate fundamentally more secure data center environments.

Infinidat provides the difference you seek in a data storage solution for media and entertainment organizations. New demands have everyone in the industry feeling the impact of high latency storage and its impact on efficiently delivering speed to market on new and dense workload management. The Infinidat unified storage architecture enables the scale, performance and best overall TCO required to deliver an extreme competitive advantage to media and entertainment companies.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Infinidat® enterprise storage solutions are based upon the unique and patented Infinidat storage architecture—A fully abstracted set of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) functions integrated with the best-of-breed off-the-shelf commodity hardware. Infinidat’s software-focused architecture, an evolution and revolution in data management design over 30 years in the making, solves the conflicting requirements of bigger, faster, and less expensive. This paper discusses the technology that enables Infinidat to be the only enterprise storage provider that achieves multi-petabyte capacity with faster than all-flash performance (over 1.3M IOPS at microsecond latency) and an unprecedented seven-nines availability, all at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc
As data becomes not only a business enabler but also the base of the business’s competitive advantage, Always On data availability has become a critical business requirement from its IT organization. With multiple potential points of failure, IT organizations have been struggling for years to design data infrastructure to meet the Always On requirement with a high cost and complexity. For a solution to be truly Always On it needs to have both zero Recovery Point Objective (RPO=0) and zero Recovery Time Objective (RTO=0). These are necessary requirements from an Always On solution but by no means sufficient.

Today’s organizations compete on customer experience and this trend will define the shape and scope of contact centers well into the next decade. To deliver the level of seamless experiences that customers expect, contact centers will need to harness all the advantages technology can offer – specifically, the cloud – to create an “intelligent cloud contact center” that utilizes machine learning and real-time data analysis.
So, step one is to move your contact center to the cloud. ASAP.
Once you are operating a cloud contact center, the next step is to start leveraging everything this enables you to do. This is where the “Intelligent Cloud Contact Center” comes into play.”

Driven by the need to save money, improve agility, and take rapid advantage of emerging
technologies to improve internal collaboration and customer engagement, organizations are
quickly adopting Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a
Service (CCaaS). UCaaS and CCaaS enable businesses to deliver a modern communications
environment, without large capital investment, and in a manner that provides for rapid
scaling, easy expansion into new sites and geographies, and deployment flexibility.
Unfortunately, many enterprise networks are not optimized to deliver the performance and
reliability required to support cloud-based applications, including UCaaS and CCaaS. As a
result, IT leaders are rapidly adopting Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN)
technologies. With SD-WAN’s ability to virtualize underlying network services and to build
enterprise-grade WANs using both public (Internet) connectivity and private WAN
connectivity, IT leaders can leverage it to su

Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster now than at any other time in history. While it once took decades to disrupt a market, natively digital companies have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years.
One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is gaining agility—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. Although achieving business agility has become a top goal for IT and business leaders, it cannot be realized if companies lack an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent an estimated $14 billion on technology in 2018 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.
However, one part of IT that has yet to evolve and lacks flexibility is the ente

But while most executives see a clear need to improve employee engagement, many have yet to develop tangible ways to measure and tackle this goal. However, a growing group of best-in-class companies says they are gaining competitive advantage through establishing metrics and practices to effectively quantify and improve the impact of their engagement initiatives on overall business performance.
These are among the findings of the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services report of more than 550 executives around employee engagement—research that features in-depth interviews with 12 best-practice company leaders.
The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018. Under GDPR, organisations have new obligations to improve the security and privacy practices for the personal data they collect and use. With these new obligations comes the potential for heavier fines and penalties. Fortunately, Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help guide your organisation toward compliance under the new requirements. Take advantage of our services, resources, and experts as you navigate these changes.
Innovation requires many ingredients: a great idea, creativity, persistence, the right data, and technology. Governments around the world are taking advantage of the cloud to reduce cost and transform the way they deliver on their mission. The expectations of an increasingly digital citizenry are high, yet all levels of government face budgetary and human resource constraints. Cloud computing (on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing) can help government organizations increase innovation, agility, and resiliency, all while reducing costs. This whitepaper provides guidelines that governments can use to break down innovation barriers and achieve a digital transformation that helps them engage and serve citizens.
