"Businesses are currently experiencing a generational shift in competitive and operational environments due to a convergence of technological, social, and economic forces. A single characteristic is emerging as the key factor that determines a company’s success: speed.
API-led connectivity is the integration approach that will provide the speed organizations are looking for. It provides an approach for connecting and exposing assets. With this approach, companies can deliver today’s projects faster than ever before while also building an infrastructure to increase productivity on future projects and an enterprise ready for change.
In this paper, you'll learn:
-How to adopt an API-led connectivity approach that packages underlying connectivity and orchestration services as easily discoverable and reusable building blocks, exposed by APIs.
-How to structure these building blocks across distinct systems, process and experience layers, to achieve both greater organizational agility and

Data Governance has emerged as the point of convergence for people, technology and process in order to manage the crucial data (information) of an enterprise. This is a vital link in the overall ongoing data management process for it maintains the quality of data and makes it available to a wide range of decision making hierarchy across an organization
Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
Today’s idea-driven economy calls for a simpler, faster virtualization solution—one that can be managed by one IT generalist vs. numerous IT specialists. Enter HPE Hyper Converged 380, an advanced, virtualized system from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Based on the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Server, this enterprise-grade VM vending machine enables you to quickly deploy VMs, simplify IT operations, and reduce overall costs like no other hyperconverged system available today.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture

As organizations continue to virtualize their infrastructures to gain higher levels of operational efficiency, VM sprawl and resource utilization are two key factors that can quickly create havoc for IT admins. In resource-siloed infrastructures, where multiple administrators are in charge of different pieces of the infrastructure, complexity continues to grow as mission-critical data sets and organizations grow. This is especially true in dynamic, mission-critical environments, where one wrong move or lack thereof could significantly impact an application, the end-user experience, or worst case, company revenue.
The impact of hyper-converged infrastructures on IT has been profound. In fact, 85% of respondents to a recent ESG survey already use or plan to use a hyper-converged solution in the coming months. Though that number appears high, it is not all that surprising. ESG also asked organizations to identify which factors drove them to deploy or considering deploying a hyper-conv
