Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

State of the IT Environment: Change is Constant

A large number of high-tech companies have enjoyed tremendous initial success, only to see their primacy wane as markets, economies and technologies evolve in what seems a blink of the eye. The current industry restructuring is raising many questions related to how IT will continue to change. Will IT as a Service (ITaaS) emerge? How will storage be impacted ted? In the future, what role will cloud and managed services play in business?

As the prevailing IT environment transitions from stability, accuracy and predictability to speed and agility, we can expect to see new metrics of success and failure emerge, marked by an emphasis on speed, agility, time-to-business value, efficiency and total cost to operate. Forward-thinking and outcome-based strategies will prove to be vital in the data-driven, ever-changing culture of modern IT.

Join us for a live webcast on March 23, 2016, to hear from an industry expert about the changes that are happening in our IT world today and tomorrow .

  • What makes a Smart City smart? Jul 19 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Alison Brooks, Research Director, IDC and Justin Bean, Director of Smart City Solutions, HDS
    A city can only be as smart as the sum of its parts. Cities are expansive ecosystems, composed of entities ranging from government and law enforcement agencies, businesses, healthcare systems, airports and transportation, to utilities, schools, universities and more. Each of these organizations has its own unique set of challenges and opportunities, but they all share common needs: They must increase operational efficiencies and cost savings, enhance the enjoyment and experience of the people they serve, as well as employees, and keep people and assets safe. The internet of things (IoT) is helping to connect our digital and physical worlds like never before. It drives new opportunities to innovate and make your business or organization, and the city it is located in, smarter, safer and more efficient. Sounds great, right? But where and how do you get started?
    Join Hitachi and our special guest, Dr. Alison Brooks, research director, Smart Cities Strategies and Public Safety at IDC, to learn:
    •How video and other IoT data can help your business become smarter, safer and more efficient.
    •How to harness IoT data to gain operational intelligence and achieve better business outcomes.

    •Which practical applications and best practices will get you started on your own IoT journey to reach your goals and tackle your challenges.
