Cloud For Dummies E-Book

Published By: Group M_IBM Q418     Published Date: Oct 02, 2018
Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the user’s identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software. Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps. Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-

Published By: Hewlett-Packard     Published Date: Aug 02, 2013
"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components. In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."

Transform Customer Service and Operations Through Order Automation

Published By: Esker     Published Date: Jul 17, 2018
What's in the white paper? Great customer service hinges on efficient order fulfillment — especially the initial processing of a customer’s order. With thousands of sales orders coming into most large organizations monthly, this mission-critical process can demand a significant portion of customer service representatives’ (CSRs') time and attention in the quest for near-perfect input accuracy and order fulfillment. But such intensive personnel support isn’t necessary for effective order processing. Great customer service doesn’t have to be cumbersome. Sales order automation can transform customer service and operations which provide quantifiable benefits to the organization. Automation provides an opportunity to improve order management by: • Reducing error rates and decreasing costs per order • Improving process transparency from receipt to archival • Reducing reshipping and inventory problems

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

Differentiate Your Business With a Cloud Contact Center

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video. Cloud solutions allow contact centers to gain access to new technology capabilities and channels on demand with the ability to scale up quickly. They offer the best technology innovation as well as the ability to scale agents up and down as business needs change. This whitepaper provides background on cloud contact cen

Strengthening Self-Service Analytics with Data Preparation and Data Virtualization

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
Self-service analytics implies that users design and develop their own reports and do their own data  analysis with minimal support by IT. Most recently, due to the availability of tools, such as those from Qlik,  Spotfire, and Tableau, self-service analytics has become immensely popular. Besides powerful analytical  and visualization capabilities, they all support functionality for accessing and integrating data sources.  With respect to this aspect of data integration four phases can be identified in the relatively short history  of self-service analytics. This whitepaper describes these four phases in detail and shows how the tools  Cisco Data Preparation (CDP) and Cisco Information Server (CIS) for data virtualization can strengthen and  enrich the self-service data integration capabilities of tools for reporting and analytics.

Classic Network Design Using Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Dec 21, 2016
The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Improve Scheduling, Production, and Quality Using Cloud ERP

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Sep 25, 2014
The software as a service (SaaS) model of application delivery, more commonly known as ‘cloud deployment’, in which software features are accessed through a Web browser, is an excellent way for manufacturing companies to get the bene?ts of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems without the need to build additional IT infrastructure. ERP functionality delivered “from the cloud” avoids the complexity and costs that often accompany on premisess ERP implementations, and typically provides a much more favorable total cost of ownership, compared to legacy on premisess deployment. Companies subscribe to the software features that they need and can add new ones as business requirements change, without buying additional servers or storage to support new functionality. The ERP features are the same as for an on premises ERP system, except that it is hosted and maintained on the Cloud provider’s infrastructure.

Reasons Why “Meet-Me” Cloud Video Services Are Mediocre at Best

Published By: LifeSize, a division of Logitech     Published Date: Jul 07, 2014
Meet-me services like Blue Jeans® and Zoom® support only one model: a prescheduled, “meet-me” conference with long, numerical dial strings and access codes. They don’t offer a “connected experience.” You have to separately manage and integrate video systems, resulting in an inferior, disjointed user experience that is more challenging to manage. Meet-me models can’t match Lifesize. Everything else is a group meeting to which participants call in and wait for everyone else. There’s no directory dialing, no point-to-point calling, no presence status and no call escalation. The only thing consistent about meet-me services is that they copy the cumbersome user experience of the audio conferencing model—dial, enter code, enter ID, wait … Download now to learn why Lifesize Cloud is the ONLY solution you need!

Reasons Why Cisco®, Polycom® and Others Are Simply Unproductive

Published By: LifeSize, a division of Logitech     Published Date: Jul 07, 2014
Cisco and Polycom are expensive, on-premises solutions that take weeks to deploy. They require large, ongoing investments to manage them and do not offer a cloud service. How much time and how many resources do you have to spend training and supporting users to work with your Cisco or Polycom solution? Don’t be fooled by packaging. Their solutions are still complex, on-premises hardware that require a team of IT specialists to support and lack the flexibility for you to grow at your own pace. For a price similar to that of your infrastructure software maintenance, you can use Lifesize Cloud and skip the high cost and complexity of Cisco’s or Polycom’s on-premises infrastructure.
