A meaningful recognition programme is in place that results in more people living out the success profile of the business.
Learning frameworks Learning frameworks are in place for each core role that give clarity on developmental needs in order for the business to meet its expected level of performance.
Compensation philosophy A relevant and consistent compensation philosophy is in place that motivates the right kind of people to join and stay in the business.
Finding the right people The business knows where to look for the right people, assess their fit and how much this really costs. The people the business wants also want to be part of the business.

An integrated talent management system
Integrated talent management operationalises the business strategy through the most appropriate business culture.
In an ever changing IT landscape, it is difficult to keep up with the trends. Virtualisation offers a solution that allows companies to run multiple operating systems and multiple applications on the same computer at the same time. This means server, storage and power resources can be maximised, allowing you to save time, money and energy.

What does a virtual machine look like?
Business Continuity Solutions
A virtual machine is not something you can see physically. It is made by software components. The virtualisation layer creates virtual machines that are like physical machines.
Portability and hardware independence make virtualisation indispensable for business continuity solutions. Popular backup tools and imaging products for disaster recovery will work with virtual machines so there is no loss of investment in using many of the management tools common to business continuity.
Thanks to virtualisation, d saster re overy is a breeze.

Managing multiple machines The virtualisation layer supports the management of multiple virtual machines that reside on the same physical server. Each virtual machine has its own operating system and applications. Users can now run a Windows, Linux, Netware, and Solaris operating system on the same physical machine at the same time.

What about this?
Virtualising servers to consoli date physical infrastructure and to contain new growth is part of a trend that economises on the physical infrastructure of an IT infrastructure. Blade servers, for example, are one way that physical consolidation is done, but virtualisationâ€™s ability to manage multiple virtual machines on a single server transforms the data centre for greater ROI and lower TCO.
The ability to create and manage reproducible test configurations makes virtual machines well suited for testing and developing applications. Virtualisation solutions work well with other quality assurance and team management tools.
A virtual machine is as isolated as a physical machine. If there are many virtual machines on one physical server and one of them crashes, the other machines remain available.

Microsoft has updated its operating system licensing so that a guest operating system running inside a virtual machine does not always incur OS licensing costs. An OS license of virtual images is only required if the virtual machines are active, which reduces the costs when using a virtual machine on standby for tasks such as failover.
Encapsulation While a physical server is essentially a piece of metal, a virtual machine is best thought of as a collection of software that has been translated into files. These files are encapsulated, or in other words, collected and organised into containers.
A virtual machine can have a network card, VGA card, or SCSI controller, but those components have nothing to do with the underlying hardware of the physical machine in which it resides. This means that a virtual machine can be moved from one physical server to another without anychanges to the device drivers, erating system, or applica tions, even if the two physical servers are from completely different companies.
Like files, virtual machines can be copied, moved, e-mailed, or distributed to any media large enough to receive them. Full systems, with fully configured applications, operating systems, BIOS, and virtual hardware can be moved from one physical server to another with zero-downtime maintenance and continuous workload consolidation.

The use of centralised storage with virtualisation products makes server provisioning more efficient and enhances server uptime.
The use of virtualisation for creating desktops inside isolated virtual machines is aluable security layer available for user networks to manage remote PCs.
