Working All Over The World

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: May 22, 2018
The company's CEO had a vision of a 'Team of Teams', based on social business collaboration. His target was to improve productivity by 30%, driven by an ability to quickly identify people with the right skills, build small teams and collaboratively solve problems, and 'fail fast' instead of wasting time on unproductive activities. Research showed this was possible: Companies reported better collaboration and a greater focus on results when using social business models. Even McKinsey Global Institute stated that social collaboration methods could improve productivity by 20-25 percent. But the company had spent 3 years trying to realize the CEO's vision. As a last throw of the dice, Infosys was asked to provide a proof of concept to show they could deliver these benefits where others had failed.

How Enterprises Such As Yours Achieve Successful Cloud Migration

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Nov 16, 2017
Two trends are pushing all lines of business—across all industries—toward cloud IT. First, IT is being stretched more than ever. IT organizations are expected to expand services and meet tighter SLAs while having fewer resources, personnel, and skills to work with. With the IT queue growing longer than ever, both IT and LOB leaders are interested in using the cloud to quickly deploy the services users need. For most IT organizations, the current way of doing business does not map to growth or enable the flexibility to compete in the digital age. Rigid and periodic hardware-refresh cycles cannot adequately scale, and applications built for on-premises resources using traditional development and management tools are no longer flexible enough to deliver the agility businesses need to grow or compete.

Cloud Benefits for the IT Service Management Market

According to Gartner, 50 percent of all new IT service desk tool purchases will utilize the cloud model by 2015.

Comparing iSCSI Initiator Implementations

Published By: Dell Storage     Published Date: Jan 16, 2009
With the advent of iSCSI as the standard for networked storage, businesses can leverage existing skills and network infrastructure to create Ethernet-based SANs that deliver the performance of Fibre Channel—but at a fraction of the cost. iSCSI enables block-level data to be transported between a server and a storage device over an IP network. An iSCSI initiator is hardware or software that runs on a host and initiates I/O to an iSCSI target, which is a storage device (usually, a logical volume) that responds to read/write requests.

Statistics for Online Experiments: How to Think and Act Like a Statistician

Published By: Optimizely     Published Date: Dec 01, 2015
Statistics are the underpinning of how Optimizely’s customers use data to make decisions. We use experiments to understand how changes we make affect the performance of our online experiences.

To run great experiments, investing in an understanding of statistics is one of the most important skills you can develop. Statistics provide inference on your results and help to determine whether you have a winning variation. Using statistical values to decide leads to stable, replicable results you can bet your business on. Lack of understanding can lead to errors and unreliable outcomes from your experiments.
