    4. Managing the Network for Digital Transformation

      Digital transformation (DT) is an extinction-level event for enterprises — it’s “go digital or die” — so your network must be DT-capable. On average, companies that embrace DT can expect to increase annual revenues by 2.9% and reduce costs by 3.6%. That’s game changing, but companies that go all in are likely to forecast “both revenue gains of more than 30% and cost reduction of more than 30% at the same time.”

    6. How open compute cuts server costs in the enterprise

      The open compute project (OCP) means you can get the designs that Microsoft, Facebook and (to a lesser extent) Google use for their data centers.  The goal is to get original design manufacturers (ODMs) to build them for you rather than buying standard servers and switches from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).  Six years on, it’s still mainly the largest of companies with the largest of data centers that are buying OCP designs, Forrester principal analyst Richard Fichera tells CIO.com. “Some of the larger financial services and large manufacturers are actively implementing OCP designs or OCP-like designs.”

    9. The Evolution and Maturation of HPC in the Enterprise

      The convergence of high performance computing (HPC) and big data has been under way for years. As I noted in an earlier blog, HPC and big data grew up in different worlds and are now coming together—due to necessity. People using HPC applications often work with big data, and people working with big data often need the processing power of HPC systems. This convergence is giving rise to the era of high performance data analytics (HPDA) in the enterprise.
