While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple screens across devices. To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile, high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective online distribution channel. This requires f

A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance. Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service delivery model. The more up to date the infrastructure, the more capable it is of supporting the scale and complexity of a changing application landscape. Current-generation applications must be supplemented and eventually supplanted with next-generation (also known as cloud-native) applications — each with very different infrastructure requirements. Keeping infrastructure up

According to recent ESG research, 70% of IT respondents indicated they plan to invest in HCI over the next 24 months. IT planners are increasingly turning toward HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions to simplify and speed up infrastructure deployments, ease day-to-day operational management, reduce costs, and increase IT speed and agility. HCI consists of a nodal-based architecture whereby all the required virtualized compute, storage, and networking assets are self-contained inside individual nodes. These nodes are, in effect, discrete virtualized computing resources “in a box.” However, they are typically grouped together to provide resiliency, high performance, and flexible resource pooling. And since HCI appliances can scale out to large configurations over time, these systems can provide businesses with investment protection and a simpler, more agile, and cost-effective way to deploy virtualized computing infrastructure.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT? The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.

" One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization. In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure and processes to better meet business needs."

Si vous avez vu des publicités automobiles dernièrement, vous vous en êtes sans doute rendu compte : les fabricants mettent désormais autant en avant la connectivité et les applications de leurs véhicules que leur design ou leur puissance. Le secteur automobile n’est pas le premier à parler d’applications. Banques, compagnies aériennes, restaurants, etc. Tous font appel à des applications pour attirer et interagir avec les clients. C’est ce que l’on appelle l’économie des applications : une économie dans laquelle chaque entreprise est appelée à faire de l’informatique et dans laquelle l’expérience utilisateur est l’arme ultime qui permet aux meilleurs de tirer leur épingle du jeu.

Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster than at any time in history. It used to take decades to disrupt a market, but natively digital companies such as Uber and Airbnb have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years. One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is becoming an agile organization—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. This shift to being an agile business has now become a top initiative for IT and business leaders. However, business agility cannot be achieved without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology to make IT more agile in 2014, according to ZK Research.

Since it first emerged more than a decade ago, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has been both widely praised as a modern, agile approach to software development and infrastructure architecture as well as dismissed as a colossal waste of time and money. Missed expectations for many SOA projects led one analyst in 2009 to declare, “SOA is dead.” Far from being dead, however, service oriented architecture is in fact more relevant than ever.

The public cloud has rapidly moved past the novelty, curiosity stage to the business critical initiative stage for nearly every established organization. In a 2016 IDC CloudView survey, 80% of the enterprises contacted were actively engaged in public-cloud projects. The driving forces are a realization that the public cloud is “enterprise ready” and the need to be more agile, more responsive and more competitive. For those organizations that already have an existing physical IT infrastructure, the common starting point is a hybrid approach, which extends the existing data center into Microsoft® Azure™.
