I don’t think it’s too much at all. However, I would recommend including some bullets calling out key points from the paper and a distinct call-to-action. Something like this: At the start of every year, more than 80% of your annual IT spend is likely already committed – in the form of depreciation, maintenance, and support for infrastructure – inhibiting your ability to bring new capabilities to the business. Making matters worse, these dollars often lie hidden in the form of inefficient or ill-advised software license management. If you don’t have the luxury of a mature vendor management function, you probably struggle to see the full picture of your future maintenance costs. This guide will give you the tools to assess your IT spend by identifying potential blind spots and uncovering the benefits of ELAs and TLAs. Some blind spots may include: • Limited visibility • Productivity barriers • Risk exposures Download now to learn how to formulate a plan to yield savings--savings that fa

Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud. Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise. This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.

Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.

To compete in today’s world, business leaders are placing increased demands on IT. Unfortunately, many IT departments are not able to deliver future innovation with their current infrastructure, applications and processes. To meet these demands, IT must digitally transform the enterprise through the adoption of cloud native practices, allowing them to both optimize and transform their existing infrastructure and applications. Recent Avanade research supports this thinking, finding that 88% of senior IT decision-makers believe that IT modernization is crucial to addressing the emerging requirements of the digital business1 . On the upside, those surveyed also indicated that by modernizing their IT infrastructures they expect to deliver real business results, such as boosting annual revenue by 14%, while at the same time reducing business operating costs by 13%1 . For many, this sounds like a winning strategy but what does it mean to adopt cloud native approaches, and how does it impact

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

Several years ago, a transformation in IT began to take place; a transformation from an IT-centric view of technology to a business-centric view of technology that Forrester refers to as business technology (BT). This transformation has a profound impact on the role of the CIO. The CIO must now view himself or herself as a business enabler. He or she must focus on continuously aligning with business objectives, improving delivery capability to support business processes that bring new products and services to market more quickly, fostering innovation, and reducing costs through improved performance. In this custom Technology Adoption Profile (TAP), the data confirms this trend.

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects: • Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic

Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system. Questions to Ask During an Evaluation: • Have you sized this system for my peak demand? • Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy? • How many hours of call recording are included? • How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment? • What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system? • Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?

All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organization’s policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.

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.

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach. This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.
