No Upside to Windows 7

Apr 25, 2019   //   by tech   //   Blog  //  No Comments

RFG Perspective: Microsoft has notified its users that support for Windows 7 is ending, yet it is likely that many enterprises will not want to migrate off the software. RFG has performed a cost/benefits analysis and found that it is more economical to migrate or replace older hardware (and software) than to hold pat. Staying on Windows 7 and paying for extended operating system support on outdated hardware can be more than twice as expensive than the upgrade options. is the most expensive option. IT executives need to understand the options and their costs and act accordingly before the support window ends.

RFG Perspective: Mobility and the digital economy proved to be an overarching theme in 2017
and will prove somehow to be even more ingrained in the all facets of enterprise business in

preference for business or personal use.

RFG Perspective: Unlike the past few years, there will be global economic and geopolitical
tailwinds in 2018, which will enable more businesses to increase their IT budgets. Additionally, the
disintermediation impacts of the digital economy will disrupt more businesses – and whole
industries – which must be addressed by corporate executives before their firms' revenues are
usurped by new or transformed competitors.

Rack-Mounted Mainframes

Jun 8, 2018   //   by admin   //   Blog, Reports  //  No Comments

RFG Perspective: A major breakthrough: mainframes redesigned for the 21 st century – compacted to be
rack-mounted and standardized for data center aisles while still leaving rack space for other components.
This modernization should make the new, highly secure, compact low-end z14 ZR1 and LinuxONE
Rockhopper II attractive to enterprise executives as they build out their next generation data centers,
including their private cloud infrastructures. IT executives should determine if these new rack-mounted
mainframes are the least risk, least cost compute platforms for certain workloads from both the financial
and technical perspectives.
