Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Enterprise Search Market Poised For Constriction?

How many enterprise search vendors are too many? The answer to that question could become clear in the coming months. Traditionally, enterprise search suppliers have been able to charge a premium for their expertise, but such boom times have moved squarely into the rear view mirror. Currently, suppliers' margins are being squeezed, a change that may force some into the arms of willing buyers.

Best And Worst Of Times For Enterprise Search

The enterprise search market has reached a critical point. While the need for search capabilities has grown in a widening array of applications, the market for these tools is reaching a saturation point, with revenue decreasing and pressure on suppliers' bottom lines rising. The end result is companies now find more enterprise search systems available at reasonable prices than ever before, but the number of vendors offering these products may soon dwindle. Companies can find a wide range of possible solutions and chances are good that one will mesh with their business requirements, but the long term future for many of the suppliers is unclear. Consequently, a business could make a purchasing decision and find its vendor acquired or perhaps out of business in a few years. In sum, for buyers, it is the best of times, but it is also the worst of times to be on the looking for an enterprise search system.

CommVault's Simpana 9: Making Information Governance Actionable

November 11, 2010 09:00 AM
Posted by David Hill

IT organizations are becoming more and more aware of the need for information governance but if their concerns only result in collaborative planning efforts there is no mechanism to actually put the plans into execution. However, there are solutions designed to help overcome this hurdle. The information management side of CommVault's Simpana 9 turns the planning exercise into actions that can achieve measurable results in such areas as eDiscovery and compliance.
