When we first launched the Women In Alternative Investments Report (WAI Report) in 2001, we were among the few voices talking about women’s advancement in alternative investments. It was a delicate conversation and one that few people were comfortable having. But now, eight years later, the conversation has shifted. The issues have moved mainstream, the dialogue has broadened, and the voices are many, but change is afoot. Investors are pressuring Alternative Investment Firms to increase gender diversity at the funds and portfolios they invest in. Read the KPMG report to understand why achieving gender diversity is a business imperative.

Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures ? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5 processor ? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration and security The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost. Performance matters as business markets are driving IT to provide an environment that: ? Continuously provides real-time results. ? Processes more complex workload stacks. ? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses. Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future, as challenges to secure systems and data are becoming more frequent and invasive from within and from outside.

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered. This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.

While great products are great, having a great product is no longer enough. Products alone simply don’t win anymore. Say you’ve just launched a brilliant product or service. A myriad of near-identical alternatives from competitors will likely flood the market almost immediately. Differentiating yours from theirs has become a lot more difficult. Not to mention that technology has made it easier than ever for customers to shop around. From gathering information, to interacting with brands and purchasing products, it’s never been simpler to find the cheapest, fastest, smartest alternative, anywhere in the world.

There is a misperception that cloud is more expensive. It's a common error and is largely a result of applying premises-based best-practices when comparing solution alternatives. Because standard TCO studies often fail to properly value key strengths of cloud-delivered services, they can lead decision-makers astray.

To win the colocation race you need to be faster, reliable, innovative and efficient –all while making smarter design choices that will ensure positive returns. Customers are demanding 100% uptime and always-on connectivity –be it small enterprises to large Internet Giants–and colocation providers need to meet these expectations. The growing adoption of prefabricated data centers allows just that. With the undisputed benefits of prefab modules and building components(like speed or quality),colocation providers can manage their business today, and deploy faster in the future. Chris Crosby, CEO for Compass Datacenters, is well-known for his expertise in the data center industry. From its founding in 2012, Compass’ data center solutions have used prefabricated components like exterior walls and power centers to deliver brandable, dedicated facilities for colocation providers. Prefabrication is the central element of the company’s “Kit of Parts” methodology that delivers customizable data center solutions from the core to the edge. By attending this webinar, colocation providers will: • understand the flexibility and value delivered via the use of prefabricated construction • Hear the common misperceptions regarding prefabricated modules and data center components • learn how prefabricated solutions can provide more revenue generation capability than competing alternatives • know what key things to consider when evaluating prefabricated data center design

For many years small to midsize manufacturers and ERP software providers struggled with the notion that full system implementations included more complexity, not to mention cost, than could be incurred by organizations with limited resources. Fortunately, drastic improvements in price performance, enhancements to underlying technologies and introduction of new forms of delivery have made ERP solutions viable and affordable to manufacturing companies of all sizes.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have. Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
