  • Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access  - Part 2
    Architectural Principles for Networked Solid State Storage Access - Part 2 Doug Voigt, Chair SNIA NVM Programming Model, HPE, J Metz, SNIA Board of Directors, Cisco Recorded: Apr 19 2017 62 mins
    New solid state storage technologies are forcing the industry to refine distinctions between networks and other types of system interconnects. The question on everyone’s mind is, when is it beneficial to use networks to access solid state storage, particularly persistent memory? The answer to this question involves application, interconnect, memory technology and scalability factors that can be analyzed in the context of a latency budget. In this talk we will explore latency budgets for various types of solid state storage access. These can be used to determine which combinations of interconnects, technologies and scales are compatible with Load/Store instruction access and which are better suited to IO completion techniques such as polling or blocking. In this webcast you’ll learn:

    •Why latency is important in accessing solid state storage
    •How to determine the appropriate use of networking in the context of a latency budget
    •Do’s and don’ts for Load/Store access
  • Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation
    Panel Discussion: Impact of Cloud and Digital on Future of the IT Organisation Rob Pritchard (Moderator) Recorded: Mar 8 2017 59 mins
    The organisational impact of “cloud” adoption (in all its guises), as well as other modern enterprise technologies, is a topic of relevance to IT and business leaders in all industry sectors.
    The much vaunted shift to "everything-as-a-service" will have major implications not only on the tasks and services that IT departments traditionally perform, but the skills required in the organisation and the nature of the relationship that “IT” has with the “business”. Shadow IT is now a fact of life in most organisations. Business customers expect IT to take more of a leadership role in defining and enabling business strategy.
    Or will it? Is it? Do they?

  • IT Trends for 2017
    IT Trends for 2017 Hu Yoshida, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Hitachi Data Systems Recorded: Feb 1 2017 57 mins
    A recent Forbes survey shows that Digital Transformation will be the highest priority for both IT and line-of-business executives in 2017. Business outcomes will drive IT, and IT will shift its focus from infrastructure to application development and analytics. Some of the major trends for 2017 will redefine the data center and focus on a number of key technologies that will enable the transition from legacy systems to systems of innovation. Operational Technology (OT) from sensors will begin to integrate with IT, and the foundation will be established for Internet of Things (IoT) developments that are currently in the proof-of-concept stage.
  • Staying Ahead of Digital Disruption with On-Demand Apps & Cloud Scalability
    Staying Ahead of Digital Disruption with On-Demand Apps & Cloud Scalability Bob Politi, SAP Practice Director & Alex Froyo, Workload & Cloud Director, HPE, with Dr. Katy Ring, Director, 451 Research Recorded: Jan 31 2017 46 mins
    Imagine having your SAP® applications on demand—with the scalability and responsiveness of the cloud with the security of traditional IT. It’s not only possible—it’s a terrific way to accelerate your path to digital. Did you know that in the past 15 years, digital business disruption has knocked 50% of Fortune 500 companies off the list? Don’t be next.

    IT is constantly challenged to accelerate time-to-value, reduce TCO, and deliver continuous business process improvement by making business more digital, scalable, and resilient. This can’t be done in a traditional IT environment. With business applications, it can’t be done from a typical cloud environment either. To accelerate the journey to a digital business future, organizations can now transform to a true SAP “on demand” application platform as a service (APaaS) solution.

    Join 451 Research and HPE Enterprise Services to learn:

    •Why successful digital strategies require cloud-based core business services
    •How to determine if your organization is ready to start digitizing core business applications
    •The business and IT benefits that an on demand SAP environment can provide
    •The attributes and characteristics you want in a true on demand SAP environment
