The Importance of Root Cause Analysis in IT Optimization

by Kurt Hildebrand | 07.31.15

It’s a jungle out there. And by “out there” we mean your enterprise IT. And by “jungle” we mean the huge number of technologies like ABAP, Java, and .NET that handle your business processes on multiple system components. Of course these service-enabled, distributed, heterogeneous systems can be accessed on all those BYOD via many different channels. One of the great challenges all this causes is finding out why performance is degrading. In short, have you ever tried to find one root (cause) in a jungle?

Don't Leave Your Business Unprotected

It’s Past Time for a Windows Server 2003 Migration Plan

by Dave Olivier | 06.30.15

Windows Server 2003 has been viewed as a secure and bulletproof platform for well over a decade, but the cyber security landscape has changed dramatically over that time—and new threats appear continuously. Sadly, legacy servers may be ill equipped to handle new threats, and organizations should seek server upgrades to protect both hardware and software against attacks. The plain fact is that when Microsoft ceases distributing security updates and patches for Windows Server 2003 software on July 14, it will become more expensive to secure legacy servers than to upgrade them for most companies.

Do More than Just Keep the Lights On

Let Infrastructure Innovation Shine with the Experts at PC Connection and EMC

by Mike Hewitt | 06.29.15

Think of your IT infrastructure as a house…a bit of a strange analogy, but hear me out. Twenty years ago, that house was a one bedroom/one bath on a quiet street that rarely saw traffic from visitors. Over the years, the neighborhood has changed—and so have the demands on your little house. Today, it’s grown into a much bigger, more complicated structure with more rooms, more outlets, and more windows and doors. Now your utility bills are higher than ever before, and you spend a huge chunk of your monthly budget just to keep the lights on. Sound familiar?

Time For Migration

Compliance and Risk: The Time for Migration Is Upon Us

Upgrade Your Server Strategically to Avoid Penalties

by Camden Haley | 06.26.15

Of the nearly 9 million Windows Server 2003 systems still running as of last month, it is estimated by security firm Bit9 that about 2.7 million will still be chugging away after July 14, 2015—the official and final end of support (EOS) date for Windows Server 2003. For some organizations there has been little incentive to upgrade. Others have been struggling with shrinking IT budgets. And many smaller organizations don’t have in-house IT or are completely unaware of the looming EOS date. What does this mean for your organization? In a word, risk.

Data Migration

Survive Your Windows Server 2003 Migration

Assess Your Risk and Understand the Skills Required for Success

by Tammy Dozois | 06.23.15

It’s clear that continuing to operate an unsupported server is a great security risk that could have a significant impact on your budget and productivity. But migrating to a new server is also a significant cost—and can be a risky prospect, especially when you’re already behind the ball. Windows Server migrations are inherently risky, requiring a unique set of skills, experience, and technologies to execute successfully.
