System administrators and other IT practitioners spend as much as 50% of their time on routine, repetitive tasks. Does the following apply to your organization?
• You go from one server to the next, installing the same package on all of them. It works nine times out of 10, but the tenth time causes a failure ... and you can't identify what went wrong.
• You can't scale. When the business wants to move to the cloud, or asks for faster provisioning of development and test environments, you only have so many hours in the day — and you can't meet everyone's needs.
• You don't have time to get to the work that matters. You spend too much time on routine system management, and can't prepare for the projects that will bring real business value to your team — and customers.
With growing demands from all corners of your organization, you simply can't keep doing it all manually. Download this paper to learn how you can benefit from automation, and how IT infrastructure can become a strategic ass
Performing PC’s are critical to businesses’ productivity and competitiveness, but hardware refresh is often extended well beyond its due date as IT departments’ resources are stretched or diverted to more urgent business critical projects. PC as a service (PCaaS) has recently emerged as a new model for IT procurement and management, and according to IDC’s latest PCaaS survey, satisfaction among early adopters in Europe is strong.

The Middleware Services Group within Information Technology Services (ITS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needed a comprehensive, dynamic solution for frequent server provisioning requests and, in particular, managed servers. Without such a solution, the likelihood that users would employ outside vendors significantly increased. Use of outside vendors would potentially increase security concerns, present additional costs, and further complicate system administration. Moving to a fully-interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, built on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, has allowed the middleware services team to deliver a flexible development and hosting environment that has fostered innovation and increased peace of mind.
With increasing demands being made on enterprise IT
departments to keep up with the accelerating pace of business,
infrastructure has to enable more dynamic, eficient application
and IT service delivery. Unfortunately, more ofen than not, IT
provisioning can be a bottleneck. Traditional means are ofen
ineficient. When developers plan their projects and estimate the
server, networking, and storage resources they need, they ofen
overestimate and pad their requests to ensure what actually
gets provisioned is adequate. The formal request comes via an IT
ticket, and then the waiting begins. Days, possibly weeks go by
before they get the resources they need, and all the while they’re
unable to iterate on and evolve core business oferings.

Cloud adoption, mobility, social media and the consumerization of IT are transforming many business activities for enterprise employees, partners and customers and eliminating the traditional network perimeter. Organizations have to change how they manage security and user identities if they want to keep their data and applications secure. Read this eBook to discover how a centralized identity and access management service can help you create a new identity perimeter.
Today’s trends, including cloud, mobile, social media, and big data, are causing huge changes in the way that identities need to be managed. As a result, the previous notion of a network perimeter is disappearing. With the advent of cloud and mobility, identity has become the new perimeter. This trend will have profound impacts on the business and IT organizations. This paper describes an identity-centric approach to security that can help you grow your business while protecting your key assets from improper use.
Most organizations want to leverage the cloud, but also recognize that migrating all their applications at once is not always practical. They are seeking ways to utilize cloud-based services while maintaining certain applications on-premise. For organizations utilizing this hybrid architecture, one of their major challenges is providing users with the flexibility to seamlessly move around the environment while still maintaining appropriate security levels—or more specifically, ensuring consistent control and security policy between on-premise applications and cloud services.
