Cross-functional skills key to running data centersSummary: Data center managers are now looking for IT staff who possess different skills such as Linux, security and app development, as the landscape evolves with the introduction of virtualization. By  | April 2, 2013 -- 06:37 GMT (14:37 SGT) Companies are increasingly looking for employees with a cross-functional skillset to manage their data centers, given that the dynamics are changing and IT becomes embedded in business-related activities. That said, IT professionals equipped with security and Linux know-how will remain in demand. Ng Tock Hiong, CTO for Cisco Singapore, said in the past, data centers were run by different teams focused on specific functions such as compute, storage, networking and applications. Each team would then work in their respective silos with minimum collaboration, he noted. Virtualization, however, changed the dynamics of data center management by unifying applications, networks, storage, a…

If you’re thinking about migrating to a hosted data center or looking for ways to improve your on-premise data center, I have one word for you: virtualization. Offering profound changes to the way data centers perform, virtualization makes sense on multiple levels. Here are 10 key benefits of data center virtualization. 1:  Less heat buildup Millions of dollars have gone into the research and design of heat dissipation and control in the data center. But the cold, hard fact is, all of those servers generate heat. The only way around that? Use fewer servers. How do you manage that? Virtualization. Virtualize your servers and you’re using less physical hardware. Use less physical hardware and you generate less heat. Ge…

Pergeseran itu berasal dari penulisan konten yang dioptimalkan untuk mesin pencari (bukan manusia/ pengguna Internet), pembelian tautan dari situs lain, dan penggunaan trik-trik curang yang disebut "black SEO".
Tetapi sekarang ini, trennya telah bergeser ke:Penulisan konten berkualitas yang memiliki manfaat bagi manusia yang membaca tetapi masih membidik peringkat mesin pencari dengan cara yang lebih cerdas.Pembangunan hubungan dengan perusahaan lain, situs lain, pihak lain yang memiliki visi dan misi yang kurang lebih sama, dan tautan pun akan datang.Perluas pandangan dan pengetahuan Anda mengenai mesin pencari: YouTube, Google Play, App Store juga patut dipertimbangkan sebagai platform mesin pencari lainnya tem…

Enterprises Develop Digital Strategies, Plan to Increase IT Spending

Gartner Reports: Enterprises Develop Digital Strategies, Plan to Increase IT SpendingBy David Roe (@druadh20)   Apr 10, 2013    It's been a long time coming, but all the recent spending figures and predictions have been pointing to this. According to a recent survey by Gartner, nearly 80% of enterprises indicated an upcoming increase in IT, while more than half have a digital strategy in place to direct enterprise spending.IT Spending, OptimismIf you've been following these kinds of reports since the beginning of the year, you would have noticed, first of all, a growing sense of optimism about the US economy, and secondly, the prospect of re-investing in their companies — something that has been on hold since the 2008 economic burn-out.While IT was not the only area of spending that was slashed, it was one of the most debilitating for enterprises that were trying to keep abreast of their competitors who had the foresight to invest. This was linked with what appeared to be a la…

Kunci sukses implementasi software: User Interface + User Experience

Enterprise software: Win over the staff and you'll win over the businessBy Nick Heath | March 4, 2013, 3:14 AM PSTWhereas IT managers may once have been the target market for enterprise software, today firms are better off designing apps to appeal directly to staff, the London Web Summit heard today.This approach relies on the so-called "Dropbox effect", where staff start using apps they have discovered themselves rather than been handed down to them by corporate IT. The software then permeates throughout the business via word of mouth, until it is favoured by a critical mass and the IT department has to consider officially incorporating it into the business' IT estate."When I think about how to sell to enterprise I think about how to engage with the grass roots, how I can build a tool that people like using," said Andy McLoughlin, co-founder of cloud-based collaboration and content management software maker Huddle."People now expect enterprise softwar…

Bagaimana P&G menampilkan data untuk para pengambil keputusan

How P&G Presents Data to Decision-MakersTom Davenport | April 04, 2013 Those of us who believe that managers make better decisions when key data are presented visually tend to get very excited about all the innovation going on in the graphical display of information. (For a sampling of some new and cool tools, see the popular Hans Rosling TED talk.) However, if you work in a large organization and want it to make better use of data visualization, I'd argue that commonality is more important than creativity. If you can establish a common visual language for data, you can radically upgrade the use of the data to drive decision-making and action.
The best case I can cite for this argument is Procter & Gamble, which has institutionalized data visualization as a primary tool of management. Working with visual analytics software vendor Tibco Spotfire, P&G has put visual displays of key information on desktops — over 50,000 P&G employees now have access to a "Decision …
