Enterprises are leveraging advancements in what IDC calls “3rd Platform” technologies — cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social — to create new business opportunities and gain competitive advantage. These trends are putting more pressure on IT organizations to transform their datacenter operations to better support business initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing revenue, and strengthening customer relationships. This has driven increased demand for converged or integrated systems that provide the tools needed to reduce capital costs, improve operational efficiencies and, ultimately, increase agility within the datacenter.
Learn why IDC recommends that organizations consider only vendors that offer both NVMe and SCSI-based enterprise storage platforms. Find out how to choose the platform that best meets your workload requirements.
Organizations are transitioning from mass-market operating models to consumer-centric models. This operating model transformation is essential to delivering on the promise represented by the new experiences being created.

The paper also looks at the Gigamon solution for visibility in today’s mobile network, which facilitates efforts toward cloudification. This architecture provides maximum, centralized control to the mobile operator’s network planning and operations teams. Read to learn more.
Organizations increasingly require IT infrastructures that support the speed at which their businesses must operate through simplicity, efficiencies, agility, and strong performance. Hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, which enable organizations to minimize or nearly eliminate inefficiencies and complexity associated with maintaining storage and compute silos, have emerged as a strong potential solution for such organizations. IDC’s research demonstrates that organizations running workloads on Nutanix solutions such as Dell XC are benefiting are benefiting from cost and staff efficiencies, the ability to scale their infrastructure incrementally, very high resiliency, and strong application performance. This is helping interviewed Nutanix solutions customers better meet business challenges and has led many of them to establish plans for expanding their hyperconverged workload environment with Nutanix solutions.
This IDC white paper examines current and future potential for IoT in the consumer industry. In addition, this white paper examines a set of IoT scenarios that are either available today or possible in the future.
For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
This IDC white paper examines the drivers behind the adoption of IoT technologies by public services organizations and why the IoT is becoming a key investment priority. Public services are comprised of a diverse set of organizations, including federal, regional and local governments and healthcare and social services providers. These all have mandates to improve the safety, health and quality of life of their constituents across a broad range of programs. This paper also provides market insights and describes examples of IoT implementations that highlight the diversity of scenarios in the public service sector. These diverse scenarios illustrate the impact IoT solutions can have across many citizen-centric
This IDC white paper examines the IoT imperative for companies in the ENR industry. We highlight IoT scenarios now and in the future, that illustrate how the integration of “things” with data and processes can generate value for ENR companies.
Transforming IT to meet the emerging requirements of a rapidly advancing digital economy is a priority for most companies today. Market economies and quickly evolving digital interactions are driving new and increasing demands on IT infrastructure for organizations of all kinds – from small businesses to enterprises to public institutions. IT requirements to support a variety of digital use paradigms (personal devices, IoT, VMs, VDI) are changing quickly, and organizations need to respond in order to be competitive in this evolving digital world.
The latest generation of PowerEdge servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors can deliver differentiated business agility over older-generation infrastructure. IDC asserted that updating servers can help businesses deploy applications up to 22 percent faster and improve application performance up to 29 percent over outdated infrastructure.
