Extracting the True Value of Data with Unified Observability
Most IT teams manage a mix of traditional on-premises infrastructure with private and public cloud, where performance is not always under IT’s direct control. Meanwhile, cloud-native applications that are modular, ephemeral, transient, and serverless co-mingle with applications that are self-hosted, managed, or delivered as a service. Effectively managing this hybrid infrastructure and application architecture requires unique skill sets and expertise.
Quite frankly, organizations (and particularly IT teams) need better insight and more context from the data they receive so they can do their job well in today’s constantly evolving environment. The solution? Observability – the next phase in the evolution of monitoring and visibility. But, what exactly is observability? And what are the benefits? In this FREE whitepaper, you will learn: The digital experience pain points currently plaguing IT teams. What observability is and why do you need it. Riverbed’s vision for Unified Observability.

Agile Integration Drives Digital Business for Mid-Market Companies
Mid-market-size companies are accelerating digital transformation initiatives and restructuring their supply chains to meet the needs of digital businesses.
OpenText and IDG surveyed mid-market companies worldwide to understand the importance of B2B integration in connecting and collaborating with increasingly diverse digital ecosystems of suppliers, partners, and customers. This position paper investigates the integration challenges mid-market companies face and how a trusted service provider can deliver the integration skills and expertise that modern mid-market companies require.
Seven Ways to Reduce Data Center Complexity
Along with the new technology and applications emerging over the past several years—IoT, IT/OT convergence, virtualization, increased security requirements, edge computing and the cloud, for example—comes more data center complexity. As technology and its usage become more complicated, it’s not unusual for any complex project, let alone data center infrastructure, to become more complex and convoluted as well.
Complexity arises when products, tools and resources not designed to work together are used to support a network. This mix-and-match approach can occur for a variety of reasons, but it often happens because today’s technology demands require data center managers to move quickly. There often appears not enough time to be practical, do things the “right way” or think through long-term ramifications. Download this white paper to learn about reducing data center complexity.
Finesse Your Data Center Redesign: Visibility, Balance, Agility
Organizations that undertake data center upgrades require high levels of agility and flexibility to cope with implementation challenges. Once an agile and flexible redesign is in place, organizations can more effectively accommodate the changes required to meet today’s complex communications, compute and storage demands. To achieve these goals, IT and C-suite leaders need to quickly pivot and employ different playbooks to overcome obstacles, adopt new technologies and create highly resilient data centers.
A flexible and scalable design will optimize a physical infrastructure to meet the needs of active equipment, cable management, connectivity, and integration—to name a few.
In this whitepaper, we consider the key elements of space, power, and performance on redesigns, steps to reduce unnecessary complexity, and how to avoid hyper-focusing on one technology solution as the answer to all your data center needs.

Four hidden costs of offshoring
In a consumer-driven technology environment, offshore software development doesn’t work. In this white paper, learn how Offshoring software development:
- Hinders innovation
- Exacerbates communication issues
- Lengthens ramp-up time
- Precludes the creation of future in-house technology leaders
Companies that have evaluated or used offshore software development have discovered four important hidden costs that negate any anticipated cost savings.
- Communication barriers inhibit innovation and collaboration
- Offshore teams take longer to ramp up
- Rework of low-quality offshore software development
- Offshore developers don’t become future company leaders
This free white paper will explore these hidden costs and present how onshore developers and development teams deliver better, faster, more innovative, and more productive software development. You’ll also learn how Surge – a Catalyte company provided onshore software engineering resources that replaced an offshore team and saved a major product launch for a Fortune 500 sports apparel company.
