SALESFORCE LAUNCHES NEW HYBRID CMS PLATFORM 'SALESFORCE CMS’

Deck 7 | November 12, 2019

Demand owns content, and with the release of 'Salesforce CMS', it’s clear that Salesforce is putting the control squarely with demand, not to mention delighting the creative marketer with more power through additional tools for creating content that are expected to work well right out of the box (er… cloud). Customers have become accustomed to consuming content across multiple channels and platforms which requires marketers to provide for seamless integration of their content. Enterprises have always been challenged by using multiple systems for their content management. Salesforce CMS addresses these common content challenges and promises more.

While any business with an online presence can be harmed by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, companies that offer software as a service (SaaS) are especially vulnerable. When a company’s entire business model depends on having applications and data accessible to customers online, even a very small amount of downtime can have disastrous implications. According to the DDoS Impact Report, the average cost of a DDoS attack is about $500,000, with some costing significantly more. In addition to lost revenue, these assaults can also tarnish a reputation that has taken years to build. This is why SaaS organizations need to understand the risks facing them when it comes to DDoS events and prepare themselves accordingly.

EcoStruxure IT modernizes IT infrastructure monitoring and management

EcoStruxure | June 10, 2022

Schneider Electric, a global pioneer in energy management and automation digital transformation, announced the modernization of its EcoStruxure IT software portfolio for the monitoring and administration of expansive, hybrid IT infrastructure, which has grown increasingly complicated in recent years. Business continuity is dependent on everything from the most minor endpoint to the largest data center as IT infrastructure spreads. As a result, edge deployments are now deemed as mission-critical as centralized data centers, necessitating the development of new software solutions to ensure the infrastructure's robustness and security. Furthermore, sustainability is becoming a significant trend: a company's data centers' energy consumption and carbon footprint will need to be assessed and maintained. According to Schneider Electric's internal forecasts, overall data center energy usage will reach 2,700 TWh by 2040, with 60% coming from scattered locations and 40% from data centers. "There's been tremendous change since DCIM first emerged as a software category. The hybrid IT environment is challenging even the most sophisticated CIO organisation with maintaining the resiliency, security, and sustainability of their IT systems. We call this trend DCIM 3.0. Schneider Electric is investing in and evolving EcoStruxure IT to provide more capability, flexibility, and deployment options than ever before for enterprises and colocation facilities everywhere in the world." Kevin Brown, SVP of EcoStruxure Solutions, Secure Power, Schneider Electric Schneider Electric has invested in EcoStruxure IT since legacy DCIM software was not designed with all of these considerations in mind. It modernizes IT physical infrastructure monitoring, management, planning, and modeling, with on-premise and cloud-based deployment choices to support hybrid, distributed IT environments ranging from a few to hundreds of sites globally. "The IT infrastructure landscape is undergoing significant transformation as it evolves from individual data centres to distributed, hybrid IT, and it demands more than what we think of as 'traditional DCIM' to ensure it is resilient, secure, and sustainable," said Industry Consultant David Cappuccio. "EcoStruxure IT is helping to simplify the complexity of sprawling IT architecture and modernise it for both current and future needs." Schneider Electric has formed a bespoke solutions team comprising of qualified engineers who do unique integrations worldwide to maximize a customer's experience with EcoStruxure IT. This one-of-a-kind team delivers all of the resources and competencies required for a successful EcoStruxure IT deployment. Customers worldwide can sign up for an EcoStruxure IT account and experience the software and security evaluation for free for 30 days.
