Whitepaper: The State of Data Center Evolution

by SiemensJun 26, 2013

Most IT executives say that some of their organizations' data centers will max out of power, cooling or space by the end of 2014, according to new research from UBM Tech and InformationWeek Marketing Services. The study, conducted in April 2013, takes an in-depth look at how IT decision makers rate the challenges they face as they evolve data centers to handle fast-growing volumes of data. Among the key findings:

Only 17 percent are actively planning or undertaking to build a new data center. However, over the next two years, 29 percent of respondents say they plan to perform a major upgrade on one or more data centers and 20 percent would consolidate data centers into fewer facilities.

As few as 18 percent plan only to maintain their current data centers without significantly upgrading hardware. Rather than investing capital in new buildings, respondents are upgrading equipment, consolidating and refreshing hardware.

More than half of the IT execs are actively considering moving forward with server consolidation, blade deployment, virtualization and outsourcing servers/storage, and installing more energy-efficient equipment.

Webcast: Accountable Care and the Cloud: The Future of Medical IT

by SiemensJul 08, 2011

In this podcast, Dan Emig and David M. Hamilton of Siemens Medical explain how the cloud can help healthcare providers significantly improve business performance by shifting allocation of their limited budget and human resources away from lower-value back-office operations in favor of higher-value clinical and patient-facing services.

The cloud does this by 1) allowing healthcare IT organizations to leverage the economies of scale offered by shared, on-demand infrastructure and 2) providing turnkey access to state-of-the-art applications delivered under a software-as-a-service model.

These benefits are especially compelling as healthcare providers face tight budgets, challenging regulatory mandates and stiff market competition.

Whitepaper: Frost & Sullivan: Finding the Value in Unified Communications -- Understanding the Hierarchy of Return

by SiemensJan 03, 2011

To stay competitive in an increasingly global workplace, companies today must find ways to allow and encourage their employees to communicate and collaborate anytime, anywhere, and from any device. Unified communications and collaboration�an integrated set of voice, video and Web collaboration applications�can enable advanced communications among employees, customers and business partners. But as is true with any technology deployment, IT and telecom executives must be able to justify the necessary investment�and demonstrating a clear ROI is especially critical in these uncertain economic times.

For many companies, the value of UCC can be found in a hierarchy of return, similar to Abraham Maslow�s hierarchy of needs. Just as people must meet certain basic needs (hunger, thirst, shelter) before they can enjoy more advanced rights (freedom, education, self-actualization, etc.), companies must ensure first and foremost that the technology they deploy is cost-effective and utilitarian. Once that basic requirement is met, they can start looking for ways to leverage technology for more advanced benefits, including improved productivity and revenue acceleration.

This paper examines the four stages of return companies can see from their UC investments: Lower communications costs are followed by lower operational costs, then better productivity, and finally a true competitive advantage. By deploying a cost-effective, open solution that�s fast to deploy and easy to use and manage, companies can move along the hierarchy, so that they quickly experience the highest-value return.
