Broker Software and Cloud Services with IBM Cloud Brokerage

whitePaper | February 2, 2019

Many enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud to accelerate innovation and to create new business models and revenue streams. They are modernizing their existing IT environment and taking advantage of newer, cost-efficient consumption models. However, as they adopt a hybrid cloud, they become increasingly aware of their reliance on multiple providers, and they struggle to maintain consistent management across the cloud and traditional IT platforms. At the same time, line of business (LOB) executives and users are aggressively pursuing cloud computing solutions (from a variety of suppliers), resulting in inefficiencies, risk to the business, and loss of insight across the organization, potentially affecting business results. Also, these renegade cloud environments introduce financial and security risks and additional complexity into the business. Situations that arise from installing these IT environments outside the norm include:

The Juniper Networks Platform for Agile Service Delivery

whitePaper |

It is no secret that, worldwide, service providers’ wireline IP data revenues have been relatively flat for the last few years, and most forecasts predict that trend to continue. Despite flat revenues, underlying traffic demand continues to grow at nearly exponential rates, squeezing service providers with rising costs. Service providers and enterprises alike are now looking to the combination of SDN and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to disconnect rising data demand from costs while increasing service agility and flexibility. The adoption of SDN/NFV also creates new revenue opportunities for service providers through rapid delivery of new, virtualized services. This white paper is for product managers and marketing professionals at service providers who wish to use SDN/NFV trends and technologies to deliver new business services faster; to profitably reach new customer segments and geographies that used to be unreachable; and to keep pace with more nimble, younger competitors. The paper examines the market opportunity for cloud-based managed services and reveals how Juniper helps service providers transform product development cycles and service delivery and, ultimately, increase revenues

The Business Value of Cloud Management Platforms: VMware vRealize

whitePaper | | Sponsored

IDC expects that over 85% of enterprises will commit to multicloud architectures by 2018. These architectures will encompass a mix of public cloud services, private clouds, community clouds, and hosted clouds as well as traditional on-premises virtual and physical computing and storage infrastructure. Some of these organizations may focus on SaaS solutions for public cloud and rely on private or even noncloud on-premises infrastructure for other workloads. Other organizations will embrace a cloud-first strategy that aggressively shifts a wide range of workloads to the most appropriate mix of public IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS solutions available while continuing to support existing legacy systems as needed to enable mission-critical business requirements.
