THE TOP 10 CRITERIA TO DISCUSS WHEN TOURING A DATA CENTER Choosing a data center or colocation provider to house your company’s critical IT infrastructure is a huge decision. Unfortunately, colocation providers don’t make it easy to differentiate between them. Many data center tours will have the same components: a sales rep will show you their data center’s battery rooms, cooling equipment, security measures, and generators, all the while assuring you that they are highly secure, reliable, well maintained, invulnerable to natural disasters, and capable of high density computing. After a few tours, it may seem as though there isn’t much difference between one data center and the next. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s important to know what to look for so you can make an informed decision. Migrating your IT environment is risky, often expensive, and certainly time consuming — you want to make the right choice the 1st time

Video quality can be measured in multiple ways, but the primary metrics – playback reliability and image quality – are the most critical. Get these right, and content providers are on their way to winning the loyalty of online audiences and driving monetization. Get them wrong, and viewers will defect in a heartbeat. For live-streaming events, such as sports, where there’s can’t-miss fast action, the ante is raised even higher. In this white paper, we’ll explore why online video quality matters and the specifics of how it should be measured. Get a peek “under the hood” to understand the core elements of video delivery that contribute to high-quality viewing experiences. Most importantly, see why the choice of a content delivery partner is essential to your online video success.

They provide feedback to spark improvement and create learning opportunities. They help you identify the right outcomes that drive you toward your business goals. Unfortunately, many businesses misuse these powerful tools in ways that actively destroy the agility they seek to create. In this paper, we highlight nine mistakes organizations make involving agile measurement at enterprise scale—and how to do it right.

Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.

Challenge Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for dynamic, distributed infrastructure. Opportunity Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component. Misalignment – or too much focus on one element –can dramatically detract from performance levels and the ability to measure results. An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.

Your goal is high availability for the applications, databases, virtual machines (VMs), servers, and data that run your business. When access is lost or interrupted, recovery speed is critical, and must be measured in minutes and seconds, not hours of days. And if your backup and recovery strategy includes point solutions with limited coverage, legacy approaches that don't support today's modern technologies, or manual proc cesses that are time-consuming and complex, you may not be ready when disaster strikes.

In today’s competitive work environment, attracting and retaining top talent is paramount and expensive. Companies recruit high performing employees with deep experience, invest in training, and reward outcomes. Yet while talent and experience are critical, new evidence suggests those attributes may not be enough. It’s not simply how well a person can perform in a typical situation, but how quickly they can return to high performance after an inevitable setback. Resilience is the ability to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad happens. It includes (learnable) cognitive and emotional skills that reduce the degree and duration of episodes of discouragement, reluctance or defeat that often follow negative events. A resilient worker will quickly put the event in perspective and search for alternative solutions while their less-resilient colleagues experience a letdown or assign blame. This paper describes how resilience, measured by the meQ Score, corresponds to w

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

Application delivery services are critical for successful applications. Whether such services add scalability, reliability, or security, most applications rely on one or more. Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), therefore, occupy a critical place in most application, cloud, and data center designs. But what does "performance" actually mean? In general, ADC vendors publish four main types of metrics to demonstrate performance: Requests per second (RPS) Connections per second (CPS) Transactions per second (TPS) Throughput (often measured in gigabits per second, Gbps) Download now to learn more!

Every day, technology plays a bigger and bigger role throughout corporate America, corporate success becomes increasingly dependent on productive use of information technology – and IT support grows more critical. But while excellent IT support rapidly returns users to productive work, the information necessary to that excellence is often fragmented in different parts of the IT organization. Effective knowledge management empowers service desks – and even users themselves – by enabling quick, accurate and consistent user solutions. That leads to measureable benefits for your business. This brief explores 20 metrics that measure those benefits – in other words, your “return on knowledge.”

As a marketer, you know how critical it is to understand how your marketing efforts contribute to the bottom line. There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to generate sales pipeline and ultimately revenue. And by becoming a data-driven marketer that’s in tune with the right metrics, you can demonstrate marketing’s contribution to both. Metrics illustrate the impact that you and your team are driving in the organization, which is critical to ensure you have the budget and resources you need to deliver optimum business outcomes. Without metrics, it’s nearly impossible to measure the success of your activities and identify elements to optimize in future campaigns. And without them, there’s no way to determine your return on investment (ROI).
