If your business is like many other organizations that are in the process of enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud platform, then you might be struggling with the guardrails needed to secure and manage cost, while at the same time enabling flexibility for the teams consuming cloud services. While the Azure platform is already very secure, it also allows a great deal of flexibility in configuration. In order to avoid accidentally creating security holes and out-of-control spend, a Governance Framework is required. We created the AHEAD Azure Governance framework to allow enterprises to develop and maintain a fully optimized, and secure environment. The resulting framework will be tailored to your organization’s specific business and compliance needs, as every enterprise is different. This guide will introduce you to the components of this necessary Azure Foundational Governance Design.

Digital transformation will fail without a commitment to automation - what AHEAD refers to as Relentless Automation. With the advent of public cloud and all of its promise, along with the ripple effect from the DevOps mantra of “automate everywhere”, technology teams must spin up new infrastructure, maintain configurations, and set up and tear down environments much faster than ever before. Of course, no one should automate for the sake of automating, or to simply be ahead of the curve. But while not every activity warrants automation - whether due to the complexity and nuance of the task, or its infrequent occurrence - Relentless Automation means identifying those tasks and processes where the benefits of automation outweigh both its upfront and recurring costs. Thankfully, the business benefits of standardizing and automating IT work are easy to spot: > Freeing up staff for higher value work > Reduction in errors and process variability > More auditability and accountability, helping

The benefits of moving to the cloud are numerous. Someone else now handles server and application setup, configuration, and system management, reducing personnel costs and increasing convenience and access for your employees. Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps for Business are both comprehensive office productivity and communication tools for businesses looking to move to the cloud. But the two solutions have significant differences. This resource provides a breakdown of the differences and demonstrates each solution’s strengths to help guide decision-makers based on their company’s priorities and needs.

In the time it took you to download and open this eBook, you could have spun up and configured hundreds of virtual machines in a public or private cloud, deployed your application, database, middleware, messaging, load balancers, storage, and other components to those configured servers, linked them all together, and had your app live in production - all with a single click. This isn’t the future we’re describing, it’s right now, and thousands of development teams around the world are doing it. At a high level, we’re describing automation that cloud and APIs enable, and at a low level, we’re describing the outcome of adopting a DevOps mentality and the associated tools. This eBook will look at the basics of DevOps automation, and configuration management to get you started down the right path.

The modern enterprise workforce poses new challenges for IT. Today’s employees work in more places, on more devices— personal or company-owned—and over more networks than ever, using a diverse array of datacenter applications, mobile apps, SaaS and cloud services. As they move among apps, networks and devices, IT needs to be able to control access and ensure data and application security without impeding productivity. That means enabling users to get to work quickly and easily in any scenario without having to deal with different ways of accessing each app. Traditional VPNs and point solutions add complexity for both users and IT, increase costs and fail to enable a holistic approach to business mobility. Over the years, many IT organizations have addressed these evolving requirements through point solutions and by case-by-case configuration of access methods. The resulting fragmented experience poses a key roadblock to productivity and increases user frustration. For IT, the lack of a

it’s crucial to make the right choices when setting up your DSE cloud infrastructure. But how can you know which instance types will give you the best cost-to-benefit ratio, both now and as your business grows? That’s where benchmarking helps. For our paper, we conducted DSE stress tests on an array of hardware configurations, and we simulated various real-world workflows, all to see which EC2 instance types deliver the best performance at the lowest costs.

Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality. In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.
