A comprehensive approach to security requires much more than simply installing locks and hiring security officers. While these remain important aspects of an effective security plan, they are part of a broader, more integrative approach to security in today’s dynamic environment. For data center operators, ensuring the security and continuity of their clients’ business operations is a key and compelling imperative. This paper has examined the elements and organization of a holistic approach to security. Digital Realty views security as an integrated process, consisting of the subprocesses of physical security, information security, incident management, business continuity and compliance, enabled by the systems, processes and people providing quality of delivery and reliability of performance. Absent any of these elements, security becomes a series of loosely related tasks lacking in cohesive effectiveness.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies— specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency. However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved. While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the adoption of new tools and technology. This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic user experiences, everyone is left wanting more.

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.

Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.

To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.

Enterprises are leveraging advancements in what IDC calls “3rd Platform” technologies — cloud, Big Data, mobility, and social — to create new business opportunities and gain competitive advantage. These trends are putting more pressure on IT organizations to transform their datacenter operations to better support business initiatives aimed at reducing costs, increasing revenue, and strengthening customer relationships. This has driven increased demand for converged or integrated systems that provide the tools needed to reduce capital costs, improve operational efficiencies and, ultimately, increase agility within the datacenter.
