      • Keys to a successful Windows 8 migration

        Migrating to a new operating system is no small task. And when the migration involves an OS as divisive as Windows 8, the task becomes that much more complicated. Proponents will need to persuade skeptics that Windows 8 brings real value to the enterprise beyond what Windows 7 or even Windows XP might currently be delivering. Companies interested in taking advantage of the new operating system’s touch features—particularly with mobile devices—could see a lot to like. Other organizations, especially those for which an OS is primarily about running desktops, will have doubts. Organizations with reasons to migrate to Windows 8 should look at four key areas as they proceed with their decision-making and planning: where Windows 8 fits into the enterprise; how to handle legacy applications in the new OS; tools to use for the migration; and details about licensing. This handbook also looks at some of features included in Windows 8.1.

      • Desktop virtualization best practices

        For decades, enterprise IT managers have delivered applications to employees through a desktop or a laptop, an operating system, a suite of productivity applications (i.e., Microsoft Office) and then through a browser. The IT pro was then cursed to spend his day managing and maintaining what can amount to thousands of endpoints. But this is all about to change. Technologies such as application and desktop virtualization, software services and cloud computing as well as a new generation of smart phones are all redefining application delivery. This e-book will look at some of the trends that may lead to new application delivery methods. You'll learn desktop virtualization best practices, and desktop virtualization strategies for your enterprise.

  • Enterprise Hadoop: Ready for prime time?

    Many vendors are pitching Hadoop as the foundation for enterprise data management environments that delivers information and insights to business users and serves as a hub for other data systems and applications. In the era of big data, the case for Hadoop is strong: Hadoop provides a cost-effective way to ingest, store and process large volumes of multi-structured data. With Hadoop, organizations can store all data in its original format and provide a system of record for the enterprise. Even more, they can bring the applications to Hadoop and process the data in place.

    But does reality square with the promise today? Are companies willing to trust their enterprise data to Hadoop? The big question is whether Hadoop is ready to support enterprise-scale, production environments where data can't be corrupted or inconsistent. Does Hadoop have adequate management, monitoring, backup, recovery and security features? What are the major gaps today and what are vendors doing to plug the holes? At what point can companies trust production computing environments to Hadoop? This report, based on a comprehensive survey of business intelligence professionals and interviews with experts in the field, addresses these questions.

  • Overcome today's disaster recovery challenges

    The use of devices not connected to a local network is a challenge for IT staffs tasked with protecting data on those devices.

The cloud has been pushed as an alternative to tape for offsite storage for disaster recovery. However, there are challenges with this approach and with protecting applications running in the cloud.
