The world economy has become service and project-driven. Global businesses have realized the new playing field is not based solely on competing with products and price, but rather through client-driven projects that require unique consulting knowledge, skills and experience. This project-driven service economy depends on accurately capturing knowledge-worker productivity—how much time, skill, materials and intellectual property are required to produce favorable client outcomes? New cloud-based Services Resource Planning (SRP) applications have emerged to manage the entire project lifecycle from requirements to quoting, time and expense capture and billing. SRP provides the systems basis for initiation, planning, resource management, execution, close and control of projects and services.
Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each and every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance.

While the rise of web-enabled applications and the zero latency customers expect from them has driven many enterprises to adopt performance management solutions, they are finding that basic understanding of how their overall user populations are being served is simply not enough. Rather, to improve and ensure the performance and availability of their business-critical web applications, organizations need to be able to see and understand the actual user experience-and provide the appropriate context and visibility necessary to fix problems based on impact-based priority.
Companies that have fully implemented application performance management solutions from CA Technologies report:
. Reductions in application downtime by as much as 70%
. Decreases in mean time to repair by 50% or more
. Decreases in application performance delays by greater than 70%
. An average return on investment of 362% within eight months or less

Industry reports all come to the same stunning conclusion: channel partners leave tens of billions of dollars in revenue on the table each and every year. Surprisingly, this lost opportunity is not in hardware or application integration, it’s in maintenance contract renewal revenues - money from sales of services essential for customers to operate. To change this forgotten potential into opportunity, resellers, distributors, and manufacturers must find a way to transform existing data into actionable intelligence. New contract management tools are now helping companies achieve this objective. By combining the two key functions of asset tracking and business intelligence, these tools are helping channel partners increase efficiency, better serve customers, and establishing strong streams of maintenance services revenue for the future.

Companies rely on the data center and IT to provide mission-critical services, like email, Web, and voice. However, assuring service delivery and reliability becomes increasingly difficult as growth in data center virtualization, remote access, cloud-based
applications, and outsourced service technologies fuel operational complexity. To improve service reliability, organizations must be able to see and manage all aspects of
performance, availability, and security related to that service.
Find out how the combination of discovery, data aggregation, correlation, out-of-the-box analytics, data management, and reporting can yield a single pane of glass into data center and IT operations and services.

Cloud computing is rapidly changing enterprise IT with applications like Salesforce and Office 365, which are improving productivity, reducing costs, and simplifying management.
Now, organizations are discovering that those same advantages can be achieved by migrating security to the cloud. In fact, in its 2016 Magic Quadrant report on Secure Web Gateways, Gartner reported, “Cloud services have experienced a 35% five-year compound annual growth rate, while on-premises appliances have only grown by 6% during the same period.”
Organizations understand that protecting users with a consistent and enforceable policy requires much more than simple URL or web filtering. Thousands of companies have already switched their IT security from appliances to experience the benefits of the Zscaler™ Security Cloud. Download this whitepaper today to find out why.
Application management requires visibility from multiple vantage points within the IT enterprise, combined with a centralized information store that pulls the technology pieces of the application puzzle into a coherent whole.

Metadata Management is the process of ensuring that all metadata associated with a digital asset is captured, organized, stored and made available for use by and within other applications. Metadata Management begins at the moment the digital asset is created by an application or captured by digital imaging.
Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the user’s identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.
Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.
Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
