Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

  • In the era of the APP economy where business models are being disrupted daily, there is a trend towards IT becoming a service broker increasingly leveraging a cloud supplier model for delivering services. How does this fit with organizations service management making technology solution decisions? What are the governance and service level management implications of these trends? Do they warrant a sophisticated approach to SLM? Or can traditional SLM practices and service desk SLM capabilities handle this new world. What are the implications of the service broker scenario on change management? Does change management go away or take on a different role? Is it easier or more difficult? Is the BAC still needed?

  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

  • Digital storage plays a significant role in the professional media and entertainment industry. Digital storage for the M&E industry has demand characteristics often very different from typical IT storage because of the performance requirements of real-time video in capture, editing and post-production, as well as distribution. On the other hand, the ever growing archive of long-tail digital content and increasing digitized historical analog content is swelling the demand for cold as well as warm archives using tape, optical discs and hard drive arrays.

    In March through May of 2014 Coughlin Associates, Inc. conducted a survey of professional media and entertainment professionals on various digital storage topics. The survey was broken down into several segments: content capture, editing and post-production, content delivery as well as archiving and digital preservation.
