8 Steps to Measure ADM Vendor Deliverables

Published By: CAST     Published Date: May 07, 2013
As enterprise IT departments increasingly move toward multi-sourcing environments, it is more important than ever to measure ADM deliverables—not only to manage risks by ensuring overall structural quality of systems, but also to objectively evaluate vendors and make smarter sourcing decisions. This paper describes the eight steps for integrating Sofware Analysis & Measurement (SAM) in your outsourcing relationship lifecycle—from RFP preparation to contract development, team transition and benchmarking—to objectively evaluate the reliability, security, efficiency, maintainability, and size of software deliverables. This measurement can greatly improve the maturity in your outsourcing relationships to enhance performance and reduce risk.

Analysis of Data Center Architectures Supporting Open Compute Project (OCP)

Published By: CDW     Published Date: Apr 04, 2016
Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.

Quantitative Analysis of a Prefabricated vs. Traditional Data Center

Published By: CDW     Published Date: Apr 04, 2016
Prefabricated modular data centers offer many advantages over traditionally built data centers, including flexibility, improved predictability, and faster speed of deployment. Cost , however, is sometimes stated as a barrier to deploying these designs. In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come at a capex premium . The analysis was completed and validated with Romonet’s Cloud-based Analytics Platform, a vendor-neutral industry resource.

The Unexpected Impact of Raising Data Center Temperatures

Published By: CDW     Published Date: Apr 04, 2016
Raising IT inlet temperatures is a common recommendation given to data center operators as a strategy to improve data center efficiency. While it is true that raising the temperature does result in more economizer hours, it does not always have a positive impact on the data center overall. In this paper, we provide a cost (capex & energy) analysis of a data center to demonstrate the importance of evaluating the data center holistically, inclusive of the IT equipment energy. The impact of raising temperatures on server failures is also discussed.

3 Critical Talent Conversations for Every Board of Directors

Published By: CEB     Published Date: Nov 06, 2013
Talent is an increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance and poses one of the most significant barriers to growth. CEB research finds that boards at top-performing companies are twice as likely to have a deep understanding of talent issues as boards at lower-performing competitors. However, most boards lack sufficient understanding of key talent issues facing the companies they oversee, particularly because the data and analysis they receive provide limited insight. This whitepaper outlines the critical talent conversations every board should have and shows how industry leaders are broadening their understanding of talent issues and assurance about critical talent risks by expanding the perimeter of talent issues they monitor beyond executive leadership and reshaping conversations on executive performance evaluation and succession.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families. Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products. Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance. Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
