Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit

As your employees bring their own smartphones and tablets to the workplace, you need to create a flexible mobile environment that allows personally owned and corporate-issued devices to co-exist. IBM Mobile Enterprise Services for managed mobility is designed to help reduce the complexity that comes with multiple mobile platforms. IBM recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the total economic impact and potential return on investment that companies realized by engaging IBM to implement a “bring your own device” program. In this report, you’ll learn how these companies: Increased employee productivity and satisfaction; expanded revenues from improved sales mobility, and decreased replacement, mobility infrastructure and support costs.

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Midsize firms from every region and industry are finding themselves under increasing pressure to improve productivity and business performance. Firms with 100 up to 1,000 or even 2,500 employees are still agile enough to respond to new opportunities, but they typically lack the comprehensive resources of larger companies to empower workers, manage processes, and generally drive successful customer engagement. This white paper examines the opportunity midmarket firms have in leveraging network infrastructure for competitive success in the new cloud and mobility era. Midmarket firms can improve their competitive position by providing more efficient access to advanced productivity resources.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with Cisco TrustSec, Forrester interviewed two companies. Company A is an organization that provides senior housing for over 22,000 residents in the US. This organization used Cisco TrustSec to provide highly secure segmented mobile network services to its residents. Company B is an international packaging and paper group company experiencing rapid growth. It used Cisco TrustSec as an innovative solution to quickly integrate the infrastructure of new acquisitions into its own and standardize security architecture across its wide area network (WAN) globally. While the case study will talk about the experiences of these two companies, the financial analysis focuses on the impact that Cisco TrustSec had on one organization.

Cisco and Polycom are expensive, on-premises solutions that take weeks to deploy. They require large, ongoing investments to manage them and do not offer a cloud service. How much time and how many resources do you have to spend training and supporting users to work with your Cisco or Polycom solution? Don’t be fooled by packaging. Their solutions are still complex, on-premises hardware that require a team of IT specialists to support and lack the flexibility for you to grow at your own pace. For a price similar to that of your infrastructure software maintenance, you can use Lifesize Cloud and skip the high cost and complexity of Cisco’s or Polycom’s on-premises infrastructure.

Any strategy for managing the network infrastructure must include a direct understanding of how well the network is playing its role in application and service delivery. This is the realm of Application-aware Network Performance Management (ANPM), and it is essential to understand the primary requirements for such systems in order to adequately evaluate and select tools and products that will best meet the need. This paper reviews the challenges that ANPM solutions are best fit to address, which qualities and capabilities are of most importance, and how one alternative, Riverbed’s Cascade Solution, stacks up.

Nobody can afford to lose data. But managing the backup and recovery of data and services in far-flung locations can present many logistical and technology challenges that add complexity, expense, and risk. A new branch converged infrastructure approach allows IT to project virtual servers and data to the edge, providing for local access and performance while data is actually stored in centralized data centers. IT can now protect data centrally and restore branch operations in a matter of minutes versus days.

Whilst many organizations have invested resources in managing their IT infrastructure, few apply the same strategic focus to the document output environment. This can represent a huge cost drain, estimated to represent between 1% and 3% of total revenue. A managed and optimized print environment will lead to significant cost reductions whilst improving productivity and boosting any organization’s green credentials.

Managed print services (MPS) offer organisations the opportunity to control costs, reduce the complexity of managing a heterogeneous infrastructure and improve business processes. With many organisations striving to do more with less, MPS can cut both capital and operational expenses. Now is the time to tackle the huge cost and productivity drain represented by an unmanaged print environment. MPS passes control of this complex infrastructure to the experts leaving an organisation to focus on its core business competencies.
