Almost every enterprise across many different industries is using cloud infrastructure to help meet business goals more efficiently. Developing strategies that include multiple clouds can help with reduced IT costs and flexibility. The majority of businesses plan to implement hybrid and multi-cloud solutions to maximize efficiency. In fact, 92 percent of businesses are already moving to a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy. In this article, we discuss hybrid and multi-cloud efficiency and what’s required to implement the transition to this strategy. After all, the days of single cloud use are just about obsolete for mid-size enterprises and up.
The rise of cloud-based computing coincides with the increase of as-a-service models. Many companies realize that transitioning to this business model offers significant opportunities for business development, growth, and financial transparency. Enterprises adding new technologies to IT infrastructure can stretch existing networks beyond capacity. This is why many companies are finding that Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) is exactly what they need to fulfill their business objectives. In this article, we discuss the basics of NaaS, its benefits, and why these advantages can help with the costliness and complexity of managing multiple networks within your organization.
Every year, enterprises make decisions regarding their technology goals, and this is largely based on where they are in their digital transformation journey. In order to facilitate a smooth transition, Nutanix offers transitional capabilities for various enterprises. In this article we cover the six core industries where Nutanix hybrid and multi-cloud solutions can help business transformation take place.
Network as a Service (NaaS) offers many advantages for network management teams such as flexibility and increased customization. It is an important way for companies to configure their network infrastructure and allows customers to operate their own networks without the clunky hardware; all that is needed is internet connectivity. As the technology world continues its shift in the “as a service” era, this standardized NaaS offering that Aruba makes possible should come as no surprise in GreenLake’s latest expansion. It is the first standardized version of NaaS, a breakthrough for seamless cloud services. In this article we review the benefits of NaaS, the eight new enterprise NaaS offerings from Aruba, and how they can improve network application and performance management.

Enterprises are turning to a hybrid multi-cloud environment as a solution to the modern technology challenges they are faced with. However, if not expected, this shift can be met with challenges that cause dissatisfaction and contradict the value that can be gained from it.
The decisions you make today for your enterprise’s digital transformation journey will have lasting impacts for years to come. What may be the best solution for one organization doesn’t necessarily make it the right option for yours, and knowing this when going into the digital transformation journey can save you headaches and heartbreak. Many decisions made by enterprises are based on their needs at the time and not on long-term goals, which can cause additional issues in the future.
More than ever, enterprises are under pressure to not only ensure that business objectives are being met but that they are also doing so with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) in mind. In fact, 58% of CEOs say their stakeholders and customers demand more transparency when reporting on their ESG goals. With this increased pressure to put environmental and sustainability initiatives in the spotlight, IT executives are looking to the cloud to meet business needs while decreasing their impact on the environment. The cloud not only provides the agility and speed to make decisions and move forward in your digital transformation goals but also aids in reaching your sustainability goals. Keep reading for three ways the cloud can help you meet your enterprise’s ESG goals.
Within the “CIO’s As-a-Service playbook,” it explains how the previous consumption-oriented model of the public cloud system changed everything. However, the previous consumption-oriented model required IT to buy service and resource capacities themselves, which introduced new risks for CIOs. These limitations were identified when contrasted with the scalability and cost efficiencies of the cloud. IT wants to deliver the public cloud experience their users crave, yet some workloads cannot make that transition and must remain on-premises for many reasons.
Every enterprise has its own library of applications and many of these libraries include a core set of applications that, while older, still play an incredibly important part in the day-to-day operations of your enterprise. However, as enterprises prioritize digital transformation these legacy applications may start lagging behind and integration complexity grows. That’s where application modernization comes in.
