Published By: HP     Published Date: Aug 26, 2008
Microsoft SQL Server has enjoyed phenomenal success as a database server. Its relatively low cost, steadily increasing capabilities and ease of deployment have all combined to accelerate its growth.

The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology.

Performance Management: The Modern Application Delivery Playbook

Published By: HP Ecommerce     Published Date: Aug 05, 2015
This July 2015 Forrester Research report is provided compliments of HP. Modern application delivery leaders realize that their primary goal is to deliver value to the business and its customers, faster. For many, this is a significant shift from the past, when they primarily focused on cost control and efficiency. Today, they must connect the work they do and the results they produce to business outcomes. To do this, application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders use a new set of metrics that help them monitor and improve the value they deliver, based on feedback from business partners and customers. In this report, we highlight these new metrics that connect business outcomes to app delivery performance — as well as the practices and tools that modern application delivery teams and their AD&D leaders use to collect and report them.

Frost & Sullivan whitepaper “Data Center Management Services"

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Mar 15, 2016
To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.
