Keeping up with the latest advances in IT technology is a task in and of itself. Once you add implementation and administering each new solution, it can become overwhelming. However, despite the hassle of upgrading, it’s a necessary to ensure that each part of your IT infrastructure is performing as optimally as possible.
Apple has a product to suit all aspects of your life with a platform that supports apps for your hobbies and entertainment, storage for your memorable photos and videos, and everything in between, including work. If you think about it, Apple® is your ‘digital workplace’ and companies large and small recognize the benefits of extending Apple products across their business and making them available to employees. Your employees desire flexibility and the option to work anytime from anywhere from the devices that they prefer. With freedom of choice, employees have more control over their work experience, resulting in higher job satisfaction and increased productivity. Enterprises report that the majority of their staff members prefer Apple devices.
As the advance of technology marches on, enterprises get caught up in the never-ending cycles of upgrades, implementation of new technologies, and decommissioning of legacy systems. This is especially true when it comes to the IT infrastructure, which forms the backbone of your enterprise’s digital existence.
As technology changes, so do priorities. For today’s enterprises, the most important pieces of the IT equation are speed, flexibility and agility. However, IT is often overwhelmed with lifecycle management and infrastructure delivery. To keep up with business demands and improve efficiency, IT teams need to make use of automation to accelerate operations.
While the cloud is not necessarily a new technology, it’s only been over the last decade that cloud computing has evolved from a new, market disrupting trend to an almost universally accepted method for delivering next-gen services.
Enterprises in every industry are undergoing digital transformations. As part of that, many are upgrading to modern cloud architectures, which can come with a jump in complexity that IT teams may be unprepared for.
When it comes to employee productivity, few things are as beneficial as allowing each user to choose the tools that work best for them. For IT, this means creating an environment that allows employees to pick their preferred OS platform. When given the choice, many users will choose a Mac.
These days, more enterprises than ever are undergoing digital transformations to modernize their operations and keep up with the competition. Technologies like cloud computing, mobile tools and various IoT (Internet of Things) solutions are being adopted to power these transformations.
In an era of transformation, speed and agility of application infrastructure is key. Unfortunately, it can take IT weeks to deliver new application stacks when requested because of manual hand-offs across a fragmented set of ‘software-definable’ technologies on-premises. This inefficiency leads teams to bypass IT in favor of public cloud application services which raises cloud costs and opens security holes.
As storage volumes continue to grow and enterprises make use of secondary storage to manage corporate data, they also need to backup these storage solutions. However, incorporating secondary storage into an enterprise-wide backup and recovery strategy is not always simple.
