10 Hidden Costs of a Premises-Based (PBX) System

Published By: Broadsoft     Published Date: Jun 14, 2017
Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system. Questions to Ask During an Evaluation: • Have you sized this system for my peak demand? • Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy? • How many hours of call recording are included? • How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment? • What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system? • Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?

Business Value of Amazon Redshift

Published By: Amazon Web Services     Published Date: Jul 25, 2018
IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse. Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off? Download now to find out more.

Can BYOD deliver real ROI?

Published By: Fujitsu     Published Date: Aug 01, 2017
Regardless of which model you choose, BYOD needs to be carefully planned to get the full benefits without increasing costs. Decisions must also be made about whether to accept some cost increases as a trade-off for benefits that improve your bottom line. To be successful, both for the business and for employees, BYOD must balance conflicting expectations to create an equilibrium in which both parties get what they want – while also each giving something in return. Many factors will influence the true cost of your BYOD program, but the decision should not be based purely on cost considerations. Research by analyst firm Forrester found that nearly 70% of companies increased their bottom line revenues as a result of deploying BYOD programs5 – so some cost increases may well be a price worth paying.

Carbonite Move

Published By: Carbonite     Published Date: Aug 02, 2017
The risk and downtime of server migration have locked many IT teams into platforms that are no longer ideal. Migrations are often delayed or avoided—whether it’s moving data to the cloud or back on premises, or upgrading the hardware of the database software. This results in lost opportunities, unnecessary costs, and a lack of agility that today’s IT teams can no longer afford. Carbonite Move Powered by DoubleTake quickly and easily migrates physical, virtual, and cloud workloads over any distance with minimal risk and near-zero downtime. Using efficient real-time, byte-level replication technology, Carbonite Move creates a replica of the data, application, database, or entire server being migrated and keeps it in sync with the production system. The migrated data can be validated without disrupting business operations, and downtime is limited to the seconds or minutes required for cutover to the new server.

Competitive System Resource Impact Testing

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Aug 22, 2018
Even if one minute a day is lost to productivity drains because of PC horsepower allocation to security scans and remediation, the cost over a year across a medium-sized enterprise adds up quickly. A 10,000 employee operation would face over $10M in direct productivity losses alone. As an early trigger for expensive PC hardware refresh is an onslaught of help desk calls, many companies find that they can actually extend the hardware refresh cycle out another 12–24 months simply by employing a security solution that does not tax the PC as heavily. The indirect costs associated with brand reputation and opportunity losses add untold thousands of dollars per year as well. Further, some institutions under green initiatives monitor power consumption related to security measures favor solutions that use less energy. As such, forward-thinking enterprises are looking beyond the software license fees when evaluating security software alternatives.

Comprehensive Data Protection For Physical, Virtual And Cloud Infrastructures

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance. Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.

Email Is A Key Workload For Storage Strategy

Published By: HP     Published Date: May 14, 2014
Email has been a mission-critical application for years and at the heart of organizations' communications and business practices. From an architecture perspective, email has frequently been walled off, sitting on separate servers and using separate back-end storage systems. With advances in server hardware and the rise of virtualization, this appears to be changing. Read this Forrester Consulting paper to learn the key considerations for what will work best within your email environment to improve storage management and/or lower storage costs in your firm.

Enterprise data warehouse optimization

Published By: Group M_IBM Q418     Published Date: Oct 15, 2018
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data. Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
