    Source: Hedvig Inc.
    White Paper: In January 2015, Hedvig commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the growing need for flexible and dynamic storage systems within enterprise companies in the US. This study of IT managers involved with storage infrastructure decisions looks at how companies are currently investing in and making infrastructure decisions, and explores the needs and expectations for new storage infrastructure implementations to meet changing business demands. To do so, Forrester leveraged data from existing Forrester surveys and supplemented that data with a custom survey of 50 US IT infrastructure decision-makers at large firms of 1,000 or more employees.

  • ESG: Evolved Software- Defined Storage
    Source: Hedvig Inc.
    White Paper: Over recent years, software-defined storage has often seemed to be equal parts reality and hype. Multiple solutions are leveraging the moniker with different definitions, providing value in different ways, and targeting different markets. One segment of software-defined storage technologies is intended to disrupt traditional storage array solutions by delivering (traditional) storage array capabilities as pure software with the potential for significant gains in enhanced flexibility and affordability. Traditional storage architectures were designed for the old way of IT: fewer applications with predictable demand. The exponential growth of data along with demands for data accessibility anywhere at any time are mounting pressure on IT organizations to find a new model. Hedvig, an emerging software-defined storage player, is focused on delivering a new level of storage flexibility and scalability along with the capabilities necessary to supplant traditional storage arrays by moving the functionality to software. The software-defined storage space is still relatively nascent and Hedvig will have to deliver on its claims, but the outlook is promising and with solutions like this one, software-defined storage could become a substantial element of any organization's storage ecosystem.

  • Mobile Procurement: Cleared for Takeoff
    Source: CDW
    White Paper: Enterprises have found that mobile devices are great for business. Tablets and smartphones allow staff to access their work day or night from the office, home or road. They boost efficiency, enable flexible schedules, improve morale and put data, tools and communication within arm's reach at all times.
    There's a price, however. IT departments, already stretched thin, now must contend with an array of devices, operating systems and cellular carriers as well as new security threats. Four million smartphones were lost or stolen last year, yet 34 percent of owners do nothing -- don't even set passwords -- to protect their devices. Even if IT departments were to get a handle on the complex mobility landscape, the technology is so fluid that the picture is constantly changing. That means the IT staff has to devote time to learning about, procuring, deploying and supporting an array of devices.
