Delivering Hybrid Analytics at the Speed of Business: IBM Integrated Analytics System

Published By: Group M_IBM Q3'19     Published Date: Jul 01, 2019
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t

6 Steps to Overcoming PCI DSS Compliance Challenges in Mult-Cloud and Hybrid Environments

Published By: Alert Logic     Published Date: May 23, 2019
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data. Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries. Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.

Engaging Great Work

Published By: OC Tanner     Published Date: Nov 16, 2016
Do you want all of your employees to expand their influence, go beyond what is expected, and purposefully create improvements for your business? To simplify this question, do you want your employees to perform great work? The fact of the matter is that anyone can be a difference maker in your organization. There is great work that only you can do. There is great work only the person sitting right next to you can do. That is both the beauty and crux of great work. It is something that everybody is capable of, but something that could go wasted if an individual fails to take action and perform great work. From the janitor to the CEO, each individual sees the business from their unique perspective and has the potential to make a difference, be innovative, and ultimately create value for your organization.

Next-Generation Firewalls: The Cornerstone of Next-Generation Security

Published By: Palo Alto Networks     Published Date: Nov 15, 2017
In today’s complex network environments, applications, infrastructure and threats are dynamic. As such, relying upon various, single-purpose security devices that don’t integrate with each other results in dangerous security gaps. These devices are poorly coordinated and unable to provide comprehensive security and threat prevention. To protect against today’s advanced attacks requires a natively integrated, next-generation approach to security – an approach that can keep up with the latest application and infrastructure trends and recognize and stop today’s most advanced threats.

The State of Marketing Attribution 2017

Published By: AdRoll     Published Date: Dec 01, 2017
There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time. There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers: • Why is attribution a process and not an end state? • Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing? • Why does the perfect attribution model not exist? • What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center? With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific. This report goes in-depth on the current adoption levels of marketing attribution, the confidence in its usage, and the effectiveness of companies’ attribution methods worldwide. You will gain a better grasp on the required skills to succeed at attribution.

How Technology is Transforming the Financial Services Industry

Published By: Workday     Published Date: Sep 19, 2018
The data deluge problem isn’t just about the amount of internal, operational data being stored, but also the level of granularity available. The finance and HR teams of many institutions still operate on outdated systems that are only able to store aggregate data with complex details summarized. While these systems may be sufficient for the purpose of financial reporting, they’re unable to keep up with the level of complexity needed to drive business decisions.

How CA Cloud Service Management Speeds Deployment and Time to Value

Published By: CA Technologies     Published Date: Feb 13, 2015
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization.

CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.

Email Security Threats: Not Just From the Outside

Published By: Mimecast     Published Date: Feb 13, 2017
Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well. S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each. In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.

Virtualizing the Evolved Packet Core (vEPC)

Published By: Intel     Published Date: Aug 17, 2017
Communications service providers are looking for alternative deployment models that will help them support fast-growing network demand. Moving to a virtualized EPC (vEPC) solution can help service providers achieve more cost-e?ective scaling by using standard high-volume servers in place of purpose-built systems. System integrators, software vendors, and platform providers rely on Intel® technologies to deliver the performance and scalability required for vEPC solutions. Intel is also participating in the development of open standards, contributing to the open source community, developing reference architectures, engaging with industry participants, and collaborating on trials that can help facilitate the evolution to vEPC solutions and accelerate network transformation by use of network functions virtualization.

IDC: Juniper Networks: Proving the Business Value of Network Transformation (Euro version)

Published By: Juniper Networks     Published Date: Aug 08, 2017
The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.

Financial and Business Reporting for Oracle E-Business R12 and 11i -3rd Edition

Published By: Insight Software     Published Date: May 22, 2018
There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeat-ability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle-based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.

Webinars vs. Web Conferencing: What Tool is Best for You?

Published By: PGi     Published Date: Oct 01, 2018
You wouldn’t hold a critical investor call, customer event or shareholder’s meeting in your office bullpen. So why would you host an important virtual event on a platform intended to support small-group collaboration and teamwork? Frost & Sullivan research shows that two-thirds of companies use web conferencing on a regular basis for project collaboration. We also know that more and more of them are turning to the same solutions to host webinars for critical internal and external events. While web conferencing solutions can be used to support large-group or strategically important meetings, webinar technology is designed specifically for that purpose and will almost always deliver a better experience and a higher return on investment. Webinar tools deliver a wealth of features to help companies gain better insights into attendee sentiment for better investor relations, employee and customer experience, and lead generation and qualification: • Integrated video draws higher levels of int
