Reliable and secure network connectivity is no longer optional. It supports critical priorities for healthcare providers, including enhancing patient care outcomes, improving operational efficiency and boosting financial returns. If a healthcare provider’s network infrastructure is not resilient, reliable and secure, the provider will not be able to reap the benefits of its healthcare IT investments.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment. While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective

Download the Keystone Research whitepaper to see how top performing enterprises use their IT investments to store, process, and use data to make more effective, real-time decisions.
Keystone Research, a global economics and data-driven strategy consulting firm, interviewed senior IT and business decision makers at over three hundred businesses to uncover the relationship between Data & Analytics technologies and business performance. This research shows that companies who have developed the most sophisticated Data & Analytics platforms and apply these capabilities as a regular part of their business enjoy operating margins that are eight percentage points higher than lagging organizations. This translates to $100 million in operating profits on average for the more advanced companies in the sample controlling for factors such as company size and industry vertical.
As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th

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.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
