This video illustrates how using the Oracle Database Appliance, which contains the server, software, networking and storage, is easy to deploy and maintain compared to a traditional build scenario, while also being an affordable high availability database solution.
Today, the need for self-service data discovery is making data governance a charged topic. As business-driven data discovery emerges as a fundamental need, the ability to ensure that data and analytics are trustworthy and protected becomes both more difficult and more imperative. This research explains how to manage the barriers and risks of self-service and enable agile data discovery across the organization by extending existing data governance framework concepts to the data-driven and discovery-oriented business.
- The implications of the "freedom vs. control" paradox
- How to design for iterative, "frictionless" discovery
- Critical checkpoints in data discovery process where governance should be in place
As data warehouses (DWs) and requirements for them continue to evolve, having a strategy to catch up and continuously modernize DWs is vital. DWs continue to be relevant, since as they support operationalized analytics, and enable business value from machine data and other new forms of big data. This TDWI Best Practices report covers how to modernize a DW environment, to keep it competitive and aligned with business goals, in the new age of big data analytics.
This report covers:
• The many options – both old and new – for modernizing a data warehouse
• New technologies, products, and practices to real-world use cases
• How to extend the lifespan, range of uses, and value of existing data warehouses

Aberdeen recently polled our analysts in the IT infrastructure group to determine the key performance indicators that set Best-in-Class information technology organizations apart from their competition. We collected data from our application performance management, cloud, virtualization, and business continuity practices, and found that Best-in-Class companies are superior when it comes to staff training, documentation, data analysis, and processes top organizations take, develop, and carry out to earn their Best-in-Class status and enable their organizations to succeed.
This guide will break each of these points down so that, in the end, you have the tools you need to make sure your staff doesn’t seek out greener pastures or lose focus. Let’s begin with the bigger picture.
Over the years, two major approaches to SERDES simulation have emerged and gained popularity: time-domain (or bit-by-bit) and statistical. Both are used to build the eye diagram and bit-error ratio (BER), and each has its benefits and limitations.

Over the last two years a major change has exploded onto the networking landscape—Network Function Virtualization (NFV). NFV is a major change in how networks are architected and operate, and its the result of fundamental transformations in the network and technology. The focus of this white paper is to define NFV and discuss how it is transforming networks.
Now that you have decided to adopt Skype for Business in your Unified Communications (UC) environment, the next step is to determine which implementation option would make the most sense given the specific needs of your business. There are several different approaches you could consider including a self managed on-premises deployment, a managed service of an on-premises deployment, a hosted deployment with a Communications Service Provider (CSP), or Microsoft's Office 365 Cloud PBX. This white paper will focus on the Microsoft Office 365 Cloud PBX deployment option.
Applications and data have been moving and will continue to move to a Cloud domain—meaning an increased need for data center connectivity. This increased connectivity is between data centers, as well as between an enterprise and their data center across a Wide Area Network. As service providers find themselves providing increased data center connectivity, they face a substantial challenge. The traditional way of provisioning, managing, selling, and ultimately monetizing their network assets is no longer dynamic enough to keep up with the new demands of data center connectivity.
Telecommunication networks are continuously evolving to remain efficient, drive down costs, increase scale, and support innovative services. While the networks have been repeatedly reconstructed, key aspects of how the physical networks were constructed fundamentally remained the same. The technologies used for communication across the networks have changed, along with the transport and physical connectivity technologies. The networks are mainly still comprised of vertically integrated nodes purposebuilt for specific functions and configured to communicate to other network nodes.
This whitepaper will outline why bringing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to an STP product line ensures that the continued deployment of STPs will indeed be economical for a service provider in the short term and contribute positively to the bottom line in the long term.
In software-defined networks, the concept of orchestration is central to ensuring proper function. Orchestration is well-understood with respect to SDNs that exist in a data center, but when the concept extends to networks that connect data centers to each other and cloud service providers to customers — often referred to as cloud exchange networks — the orchestration function has to take on different functions that are only now becoming well-defined.
