A recent survey of 200 data center managers across the US and UK reveals that a large proportion of centers take a manual approach to planning and forecasting. Despite its limitations, MS Excel emerges as a popular tool and nearly one in ten resort to walking around a data center with a tape measure. Only just over half are able to benefit from using Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools. The manual approach is not limited to smaller data centers by any means; the proportion was found to remain the same even amongst the larger data centers (with above 1,500 servers). When asked why manual methods were employed, 46% said it was because they felt that the alternatives would be too expensive. A further 35% feared they lacked the resources to implement a more automated approach. Whilst both these factors may seem reasonable enough at first sight, both might actually represent false economies in the longer run.

It happens every year – the General Rate Increase. As carriers increase their shipping rates to keep pace with the economy, shippers try to adjust and factor the annual increase into their business model. But there’s more to GRI than meets the eye. The GRI is just one of many variables in your shipping costs, and misjudging the GRI and other cost increases that might come along with it can be catastrophic to your bottom line if they are not managed properly. With smart planning, however, you can control these costs and protect your profits.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions along the way that can help or hinder progress. For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest architectural style. In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
