Over time, every IT portfolio gets bogged down in the chaos of servers, platforms, and software that
make up the current IT landscape. Legacy systems, disparate architectures, and aging technologies slowly eat away at returns, reduce your ability to respond to shifting demands, and limit how quickly you can scale to meet new market opportunities. IT modernization lets you reboot your portfolio for greater agility, reduced cost, and operational excellence. This frees up your time and money to focus on innovation, not implementation.
Ubiquitous connectivity has its benefits, but in the enterprise it also introduces the danger of information overload and communication breakdown. Businesses need to look to consumer social hubs and evolve their communications solutions from separate silos to an integrated mix of devices, apps and solutions on a cloud-based infrastructure.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:
Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.
As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.
This report takes a look at the enterprise threat landscape as it stands in 2013. What areas should you be sitting up and paying attention to?

Today's IT organizations are faced with the daunting task of optimizing all aspects of their departments, including people, processes and technology. Optimizing and streamlining server utilization through virtualization represents one particularly exciting example. We found that one of the most popular usage models for virtualization is to drive down server procurements in development, test and production environments. When this model is followed, future server purchases are avoided; instead, new workloads are established on existing systems.
