Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Digital transformation has become a top mandate for almost every IT and business leader. The ZK Research 2015 IT Priorities Survey found that 79% of businesses currently have a digital transformation initiative in progress (Exhibit 1). In the digital era, competitive advantage is no longer determined by which company has the best products or even the best people. Market leadership is based on an organization’s ability to analyze information, gain insights and make fast decisions to capitalize on market transitions.

Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak. By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far simpler to manage security through defining and delegating application and services to specific users.

In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible. In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases. Much of the blame for the problem can be laid at the feet of organizational structures that mandate conflicting goals for the two key departments at either end of the application development chain: development/testing (dev/test) and operations. Where dev/test teams want to push their applications and updates into production quickly, operations teams want to go more slowly in order to maintain control and keep applications and systems available.

It is important to understand the different business situations where traditional predictive analytics can be best applied and where anticipatory analytics may be a more appropriate approach to solve the business problem. One is not necessarily superior to the other – it’s about which methodology is best utilized in solving the specific business problem. Conventional response modeling, revenue potential modeling, wallet share analysis, traditional risk scoring and other analytic practices will always be important tools for businesses far-and-wide, but as more companies focus on analytics to inform growth, they’ll have employ the right team and identify the right partners to work with in order to successfully leverage anticipatory analytics to gain a competitive advantage. Looking forward, we anticipate anticipatory analytics playing an important role in your future. Download this white paper to learn more.

This competitive review between Red Hat and TIBCO integration technologies has presented multiple differences between the products. A notable difference is that only Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a 100% open source product. Red Hat is committed to leveraging existing open source projects and using open standards whenever possible for both product implementation and integration communication. This includes Camel, the de-facto integration standard included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Red Hat’s open source commitment extends to Active MQ, the upstream messaging technology used with JBoss A-MQ and included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Another difference is that Red Hat JBoss Fuse clustering is based on the upstream Fabric8 community project and offers much more functionality than TIBCO clustering options.

Companies that hope to stay competitive in the marketplace must begin to consider alternatives to x86, or else they will find themselves at a serious infrastructure disadvantage. Performance and flexibility embedded in the architecture can scale in a way that the number of servers can’t, as applications and data grow in depth and complexity.

Data is the lifeblood of today’s digital businesses; protecting it from theft, misuse, and abuse is the top responsibility of every S&R leader. Hacked customer data can erase millions in profits, stolen IP can destroy competitive advantage, and unnecessary privacy abuses can bring unwanted scrutiny and fines from regulators while damaging reputations. S&R pros must take a data-centric approach that ensures security travels with the data regardless of user population, location, or even hosting model; position data security and privacy capabilities as competitive differentiators; and build a new kind of customer relationship.

Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance. But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock. If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects.
