Today, business is conducted in a fast-paced, on-demand, globally dispersed environment. Maintaining a competitive edge requires cohesive real-time collaboration. Mobile workers, partners, vendors, suppliers, and even customers expect to be able to work together seamlessly, both inside and outside the firewall. But delivering tools for high-quality collaboration is often challenging, due to the need for businesses of all sizes to support a wide range of personal and business devices. Mixing disparate devices with complex conferencing solutions often lead to frustrated employees, while businesses face a labor-intensive, costly endeavor without a high ROI. In addition, collaboration is evolving with businesses creating small "huddle" spaces and open workspaces that increase the demand for ubiquitous, effective conferencing.
The Intel Unite ' solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, high-quality collaboration experience. Whether you select the
PKI is becoming a critical underpinning to help organizations succeed as they roll out new digital business models.

Certificate management is a crucial part of a robust PKI implementation, ensuring visibility and adherence to policy throughout the certificate lifecycle: from identity vetting, to issuance, to renewal to revocation. As Gartner noted in its recent report, “PKI is Gearing Up for the Internet of Things”

Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically
transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have
continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and
keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve. Originally
envisioned as an IT-centric tool for enterprise reporting, analytics today
has evolved into a business solution—empowering a range of users
across every line of business, including front-line employees, field
personnel, and executives.
The rise of self-service analytics over the past decade has played a key role in promoting a data-driven mindset
within every business function. However, this practice is limited to a skilled few. The vast majority of business
professionals lack the time, analytical skills, or inclination to conduct their own analyses, and fail to effectively use
analytics on a day-to-day basis. The result? Despite decades of investments, BI adoption at most organizations
remains at 30%.

Dresner Advisory Services’ eighth annual Cloud Computing and Business Intelligence
Market Study in 2019 shows user confidence at an all-time high, with cloud offerings
outnumbering traditional on-premises offerings.
Sentiment toward cloud and cloud BI turned sharply positive in 2018, with current and
future user plans both trending up. Results from our 2019 Dresner Advisory Services
New Year User Survey reinforced those findings with ongoing momentum. Sentiment is
at an all-time high, and the majority of organizations—51 percent—use cloud BI in 2019.
Cloud-based BI vendor products and services are now more plentiful than traditional onpremises products. Still, vendors support any deployment option the customer chooses:
public, private, or hybrid, at multiple levels of scale and price. Customers benefit from
these choices, which reduce the chance for vendor lock-in.
Users have not settled on deployment models but are migrating toward subscription and

AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.
Years ago, there were proprietary networking solutions like IBM Token Ring. Every new PO had to go to the same vendor if customers wanted to ensure connectivity.
Then came Ethernet which promised to be an open interoperable standard. However, vendors recreated lock-in by implementing proprietary VLAN extensions such as private VLANs.

The goal of automating the T&E function isn’t just to save the company time and money, although that is a significant consideration. With policies in place, companies can ensure that business travelers are adhering to allowances for meals, hotels and other travel-related expenses. Companies that establish clear policies for how employees can book and pay for travel — and which vendors to use — can negotiate discounts and rewards with hotels, rental car agencies and airlines.
In addition to the financial benefits of an expense management policy, employee satisfaction is also at stake. Creating a realistic travel policy that is clear, simple and easily accessible makes employees happy. A quick and hassle-free travel expense management process reduces traveler stress, enabling
