The Five Pillars of a Modern PMO

Published By: CA Technologies     Published Date: Sep 25, 2017
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction. But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.

STATE OF THE NETWORK STUDY

Published By: Butler Technologies     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
The Tenth Annual State of the Network Global Study focuses a lens on the network team’s role in security investigations. Results indicate that 88 percent of network teams are now spending time on security issues. In fact, out of 1,035 respondents, nearly 3 out of 4 spend up to 10 hours per week working exclusively on these types of problems - in addition to managing network upgrades, SDN, cloud, and big data initiatives. When it comes to technology adoption, both cloud and 100 GbE deployment continue to grow aggressively. VoIP adoption is closing in on 60 percent and software-defined networking (SDN) is projected to cross the halfway mark, indicating compounding network complexity amidst the ongoing struggle to ID security threats. With growth comes change and some trends identified in this year’s survey include a rise in email and browser-based malware attacks (63 percent) and an increase in sophistication (52 percent). Nearly 1 in 3 also report a surge in DDoS attacks, signaling a ne

As Your Network Gets Complex, Managing It Must Get Simple

Published By: HP - Enterprise     Published Date: Jun 05, 2013
As the networks become ever more essential to business processes, they are also increasing rapidly in size and complexity. Many factors can affect network availability and performance—increasing traffic, configuration problems, failed network elements, changes, and more. Since not all of these problems are hard failures, managing the network to detect and correct business-impacting problems requires new tools, strategies, and initiatives. To deliver the availability and performance business demands, network management teams need to optimize fault management and ensure availability, unify fault and performance management, automate change and configuration management to ensure compliance, and automate IT processes. This integrated approach is called Automated Network Management (ANM).

Achieving a Unified Governance Strategy

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Aug 24, 2017
Data governance is all about managing data, by revising that data to standardize it and bring consistency to the way it is used across numerous business initiatives. What’s more, data governance ensures that critical data is available at the right time to the right person, in a standardized and reliable form. A benefit that fuels better organization of business operations, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency of that organization. Thus, the importance of proper data governance cannot be understated. The concepts of data governance have evolved, where the first iteration of data governance, often referred to as version 1.0, focused on three simplistic elements: objectives, structure and processes; having a limited focus and scope due to its tactical usage. The opportunity from the growing value of data in the realm of analytics, business intelligence, and generating insights was left unrealized. Today, organizations are moving towards what can be called Data Governance 2.0,

Maximizing Your Virtual Environment for the Latest Business Initiatives

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 10, 2013
Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit
