Windows 10 is the OS of the future and fundamentally changes how PCs and other devices will be used and supported in organizations. However, with different support periods set by Microsoft for Windows 7, each IT and procurement organization need to evaluate what hardware and software combination will best support their workforce if they are not ready to move to Windows 10 right away. Even purchasing new PCs to take advantage of performance improvements and new form factors while downgrading the OS may not be an optimal strategy going forward.

Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.

Although the cost of flash storage solutions continues to fall, on a per-gigabyte capacity basis, it is still significantly more expensive to acquire than traditional hard drives. However, when the cost per gigabyte is examined in terms of TCO, and the customer looks past the pure acquisition cost and accounts for “soft factors” such as prolonging the life of a data center, lower operating costs (for example, power and cooling), increased flexibility and scalability, or the service levels that a flash solution enables, flash solution costs become increasingly competitive with spinning media.

Kenzan, a software engineering firm that specializes in building scalable, data-driven solutions, often leverages DataStax Enterprise (DSE) for customers that have high expectations for both performance and value. That means making careful, informed choices when designing the cloud infrastructure that applications run on. Controlling costs is always a priority for businesses that rely on AWS for running DSE. With AWS, it can be tempting to solve performance issues simply by adding more resources until the problem goes away. However, this “solution” results in increased costs which quickly add up over time. In this white paper, Kenzan and DataStax identify some of the key factors to consider when building out infrastructure on AWS, outlining practical steps you can take to optimize performance with DSE on AWS while keeping costs in check.

Relational database management systems (RDBMSs) are systems of software that manage databases as structured sets of tables containing rows and columns with references to one another through key values. They include the ability to optimize storage, process transactions, perform queries, and preserve the integrity of data structures. When used with applications, they provide the beating heart of the collection of business functions supported by those applications. They vary considerably in terms of the factors that impact the total cost of running a database application, yet users seldom perform a disciplined procedure to calculate such costs. Most users choose instead to remain with a single vendor's RDBMS and never visit the question of ongoing hardware, software, and staffing fees.

As organizations look for more ways to increase productivity and profitability, human resources departments are being asked to provide more strategic input to executives. Doing so requires tools that improve access to timely, accurate information for enhanced business decision making. If you don’t have a human resource management system (HRMS), HR can end up spending too much time on repetitive day-to-day tasks like paperwork while struggling to deliver meaningful workforce insights. The right HR management software can help the HR team increase control over employee data, optimize productivity, and take employee engagement to the next level, so you can deliver the future workforce your organization needs to succeed. This white paper discusses the five areas to keep in mind when evaluating solutions to find an HRMS that’s a good fit for your business.

Showing a softer side of manufacturing is winning over executives, according to a new study conducted by the FORTUNE Knowledge Group and gyro. While conventional wisdom and the standard manufacturing marketing approach would indicate that hard elements are more compelling, this new research suggests that the opposite is true: A significant majority of business leaders are moving to a more innate approach to decision-making, trusting their gut and relying on “soft” factors, such as company culture, reputation and level of trust, to help them make decisions.

Performance plays a vital role in the success of your online applications and web-based content - whether you are processing millions of transactions, delivering business-critical software or servicing a massive gaming community. Research shows that even one second of delay on a typical website can result in 7% fewer customer conversions. For many businesses, that means lost revenue and damage to their brand. As cloud is becoming an increasingly viable infrastructure choice for enterprise applications, it is essential to select a high-performance cloud service that will support the best possible experience for your end users. Determining the right cloud solution for your needs also necessitates thorough analysis of the level of security, control, customization and support your business requires. In this webcast, thought leaders from Gartner and Internap outline the performance factors that affect your cloud decision-making process and discuss how to optimize your IT Infrastructure to create satisfied end users.

The talent acquisition market has changed dramatically. It is no longer just about placing ads on different sites and waiting for the resumes to roll in. Rather, it’s ferreting out those passive candidates and convincing them that your company is where they can shine and grow in their profession.
