D

Digital footprint

The organization's digital footprint encompasses all the traceable digital activities, actions, contributions, or communications across the internet or on devices. With the increased incorporation of cloud infra and services, it's becoming increasingly difficult to track the organization's footprint.  An organization's cybersecurity strategy can be considered robust only if it monitors all the unique digital footprints across all business lines and

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is the process through which new and existing business processes evolve with the integration of modern technologies and shift in organizational culture. The objective of digital transformation is to improve customer experience and meet latest business requirements.

KNOW MORE  

Digitalization

Digitalization refers to the Digital Transformation of businesses and subsequently their IT organizations. It mandates the use of digital technologies to transform the business model and provide innovative revenue and value-generating opportunities while moving to a future-ready paradigm.

KNOW MORE  

Distributed architecture

A distributed architecture supports distributed systems by connecting components to achieve a common goal. These may include physical servers, computers, network devices, containers, and virtual machines working as a single unit.

KNOW MORE  

Dynamic capacity orchestration

Dynamic capacity orchestration refers to facilitating rapid deployment and automation across hybrid physical and virtual networks. Companies leverage dynamic capacity orchestration to achieve faster time to market and better service delivery.

KNOW MORE  

Dynamic operations

Dynamic operations are an integral component of modern hybrid environments that are fluid and temporal, allowing applications to be available continuously through virtualization. Dynamic ops facilitate automated provisioning, intelligent prioritization and scheduling, and integrations for holistic infrastructure management.

KNOW MORE  

Dynamic thresholds

Dynamic thresholds represent bounds of an expected data range for a particular alert. Unlike static alert thresholds that are assigned manually, dynamic limits are calculated by anomaly detection algorithms and continuously trained by an alert's historical values. When dynamic thresholds are enabled, alerts are dynamically generated when these thresholds are exceeded. Simply put, alerts are generated when deviations or anomalies

KNOW MORE  

Dynamic workloads

Dynamic workloads are an important component in hybrid cloud systems that require rapid resource changes to address modern computing demands. Workloads in such virtualized environments need proactive management to ensure better availability, scalability, and cost optimization.

E

EBITDA

EBITDA is the acronym for Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization. It’s an important metric for IT service providers to gauge the profitability of their business and valuation during an acquisition.

KNOW MORE  

Elastic cloud

Elastic cloud is a unique cloud computing capability that enables variable service levels based on dynamic requirements. Elasticity is critical for increasing or reducing cloud services’ capacity and performance based on business needs. It can be changed with automated rules based on events, or through manual reconfiguration.

KNOW MORE  

Elastic workforce

An elastic workforce enables companies to react quickly to environmental changes and scale up or down, effectively minimizing their risk exposure. It involves having on-demand talent ready to react to critical events while being aligned to long-term business strategy.

F

Firmware upgrade

More than 65% of companies don’t know which devices to patch first. Even with the appropriate prioritization, manual patching slows everything down. Delayed firmware upgrades create a severe impact on your network and cause downtime. Devices like routers and switches that are not updated to the latest firmware version fail to perform. Consequently, device may underperform and lead to poor

KNOW MORE  

H

Hybrid cloud

Infrastructure that links a private cloud (controlled by the user) and at least one public cloud (managed by a cloud service provider) constitutes a hybrid cloud. A hybrid cloud setup helps businesses leverage the scalability and cost savings of public cloud while ensuring business critical applications and their data remain on-premise.

KNOW MORE  

Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI)

HCI is an IT platform that brings together computing, storage, and networking into a unified system to minimize complexity and enhance scalability. These platforms leverage a hypervisor for virtualized computing, software-defined storage, and virtual networks while running on standard servers. Numerous nodes can be combined to create pools of common compute and storage resources, built for easier consumption.

I

IBM QRadar

IBM QRadar Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) helps security teams accurately detect and prioritize threats across the enterprise. It also gives you insights into the incidents to enable your team to respond quickly. QRadar SIEM is available on-prem and in a cloud environment. It consolidates log events and network flow data from all the devices, endpoints, and applications distributed throughout the network. Accelerate

KNOW MORE  

Incident management

Any event that can lead to loss or disruption of an organization's operations, services, or functions is known as an incident. Incident management is a collective term that describes all the activities of an organization to identify, analyze, and correct issues that may lead to a future catastrophe. Incident management allows you to limit the disruption that may be caused by

KNOW MORE  

Infrastructure as code (IaC)

Infrastructure as code (IaC) means to replace physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools with configuration code files. Before IaC, IT operations teams would have to manually change configurations to manage infrastructure, which was a tedious process.

KNOW MORE  

Infrastructure monitoring

Often IT infrastructures are comprised of multiple locations that include both public, private, and hybrid cloud deployments. But most IT teams fail to identify blind spots in their environment and correlate problems before they affect end-users. This hampers the productivity of the organization. IT monitoring becomes more complex as infrastructures become denser and more dispersed. IT infrastructure monitoring is the

KNOW MORE  

IT asset

An IT asset is a hardware or software within an IT environment. Not that tracking of IT assets within an IT asset management system is crucial to the operational as well as the financial success of an enterprise. IT assets are integral components of the organization's systems and network infrastructure. An undeniable fact about IT assets is that they have

KNOW MORE  

IT change risks

IT change risk arises from an organization's inability to manage IT system changes in a timely and controlled manner, especially for large and complex change programs. Inadequate controls lead to incidents that go undetected. Systems become vulnerable due to a lack of testing or improper change management practices. For example, the release of insufficiently tested software or configuration changes can have
