Data trends redefine leading brands

Published By: Adobe     Published Date: Oct 14, 2019
Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage. Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%

Secure at the Source

Published By: Ounce Labs, an IBM Company     Published Date: Dec 29, 2009
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Automated Security at the Speed of DevOps

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Oct 07, 2019
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands. Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing organizations to create better software faster. As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting developer agility.

How CIOs Can Empower the Digital Workplace

Today’s CIOs no longer just oversee technology. They are now key strategists who guide their organizations and give them the tools they need to stay competitive. A study by Forbes Research stated that five years ago, a CIO’s most critical skill was deploying technology. Now, the #1 way that CIOs provide value is by contributing to the corporate strategy, so they can advance business objectives and drive revenue.1 In particular, CEOs rely on the CIO for guidance around digital transformation.
