Aberdeen Publishes IT Infrastructure, Financial Management, and Enterprise Applications Research

Research Examines the Hypervisor Market, Email Archiving, the Dynamic Data Center, Visual BI, and Deriving BI Project ROI

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Infrastructure, Finanacial Management, and Enterprise Applications research practices.

"The Role of Fault-Tolerant Servers in Protecting Virtualized Applications," one of three reports authored this month by Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen IT Infrastructure/ Virtualization and the Cloud research practice, reveals application downtime still impacts the vast majority of companies. There are four major classes of application protection technologies. Fault-tolerant servers provide the highest levels of downtime protection and are used by leading organizations to protect both Tier 1 and Tier 2 applications.

Next from Csaplar, "Test and Dev: The Beachhead Application for Public Cloud" shows that test and development applications have unique characteristics that make them ideal candidates to be deployed in the Public Cloud. Test and dev applications are managed by very sophisticated users, are deployed on virtualized servers, use cloned or dummy data and generally use burst of computing resources. These attributes are ideal for using computing resources provided by 3rd party Cloud providers.

Also authored by Csaplar, "The Future Datacenter: A 100% Virtualized Law Firm" outlines the steps a law firm took to become fully virtualized. It is unusual for any organization, let alone a law firm to have all servers, storage and desktops running as virtualized devices. This report highlights the tools they chose and the benefits they received from each form of virtualization.

"Real-Time Financial Reporting: Ensuring Continuous Compliance and Transparency While Reducing Costs," prepared by Ankita Tyagi, Senior Research Associate, in Aberdeen's Financial Management and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) practice, states that the current dynamic economic and regulatory environment creates an urgent need for timely access to critical information by key stakeholders to ensure proactive business management and financial transparency. Real-time reporting enables access to information as and when transactions occur, rather than at some pre-established periodic interval. This report sheds light on how companies are relying on real-time capabilities to reduce operational costs and ensuring compliance while imparting transparency.

"Using Social, Mobile, and Cloud ERP Strategies in Professional Services to Deliver Value," prepared by Nick Castellina, Research Analyst in Aberdeen's Enterprise Applications practice, states that professional services firms are faced with a variety of unique challenges around process standardization, cost factors, and structural inefficiencies that can hinder their success. Past Aberdeen research has illustrated ways in which Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) has helped professional services organizations to standardize processes, manage costs, and enable operational efficiency. This report illustrates how professional service firms are combining social, mobile, and cloud strategies with ERP to collaborate internally and externally, and deliver more value to their clients and themselves.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
