The latest protocol for improving your wireless network performance is beginning to make itself available to new devices here in 2022, and its name is Wi-Fi 6E. Chances are, your network management team may be unacquainted with this new innovative standard as very few client devices currently support it. This unfamiliarity won’t be for long, however. Wi-Fi 6E has too many advantages over its predecessors to be ignored. It is destined to empower a whole new generation of wireless and IoT devices to experience faster speed, lower latency, high capacity, and greater security. It might be the biggest wireless network event that you haven’t heard of.

As of this year, 60% of all corporate data is stored in the cloud, and this number is expected to grow as many organizations shift their resources to cloud environments. With such a large amount of data, it is crucial to have a good storage system to keep data safe and easily accessible. Luckily, HPE is adding new storage options to their GreenLake cloud service. In this helpful article, we cover everything you need to know about the HPE GreenLake storage offerings.
What’s Next for Digital Transformation? Enterprise IT Leaders Share Their Technology Investment Plans
In 2018, our IT trends survey found slightly over half (53%) of companies had taken some type of action to support digital transformation (e.g., process, operational and/or technology changes). In 2021, we found 70% of companies had embarked on a digital transformation journey.
HPE has announced a significant and holistic expansion to their GreenLake cloud service that will accommodate a faster and more simplified digital transformation journey for data-first enterprises. The edge-to-cloud platform has taken “a dramatic step forward in the architecture of the platform with compute, storage and networking services all available in a unified platform.” Let’s review the highlights of this simplified cloud service expansion.
These days, IT leaders are typically managing and securing their enterprise’s IT estate that is vast in size and pumping with computing power at the outer edges of the network. On top of that, employees are now dispersed across an ever-expanding remote workspace designed to replicate the primary office environment.
Just as the AI-driven app on your smartphone navigates you to a new destination, IT leaders also believe there should be an AI-driven app that assists with managing a self-driving network. Well, turns out there is such an app available for that, and it is called Mist AI from Juniper, a recognized leader in AI for IT operations (AIOps).

Way back in 2005, Gartner predicted that the consumerization of IT would be one of the most significant trends over the next decade. This prediction has held true as the consumerization of IT has repeatedly played itself out in recent years. Emerging technologies have made their way from the consumer market and into business enterprises with the next phase of this consumerization trend now in motion. And its central focus? Artificial intelligence (AI).
A few weeks into January, there is still time to put on our fortune teller hat to make IT predictions for 2022. This is an opportunity to predict the trends, technologies, and challenges that enterprises will experience over the next 11 months. While we don’t claim to have any clairvoyant powers, we do have a good pulse on how the coming year will play out due to our involved client partnerships and our commitment to identifying and embracing new technology solutions that add value to our clients.
Unfortunately, as technology evolves, it’s not just the enterprise that benefits from the latest and greatest tools – so do the criminals who use them to attack businesses. With enterprises pushing forward with digital-first initiatives, it’s a matter of when, not if, they will be faced with a cybersecurity threat. Because of this assumed risk, it is no longer enough to just have the right technology in place; it’s imperative for your enterprise to have a cybersecurity strategy to prevent, detect, and overcome a ransomware attack.
What is your enterprise’s cybersecurity process when it comes to ransomware preparedness? As a heavily relied upon technology leader, this is a critical question to ask yourself. Remember, there are two types of companies – those that have been hit with ransomware and those that eventually will be. According to numbers recently published by Cybersecurity Ventures, a ransomware attack occurs every 11 seconds. On average, each incident costs an astounding $700,000 in damages.
