Restoring Connections

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jul 31, 2015
Commoditization is a serious threat to the telecommunications industry. Most CSPs offer similar services at rates designed to win what has become a price war. As a result, many face decreasing margins and difficulty sustaining differentiation based on prices or products alone. On top of commoditization, CSPs also face competition from OTT providers and an increasingly knowledgeable and demanding customer base. With access to growing amounts of data from an ever-increasing number of sources and devices, today’s empowered, savvy consumers know what they want and expect to get it.

Amplifying Employee Voice: How organizations can better connect to the pulse of the workforce

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 28, 2016
The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics that matter to them. Organizations today need to more actively solicit, analyze and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees. Having access to the collective “employee voice” can help leaders achieve diverse goals, including identifying innovations, preventing discord and improving productivity, as well as building a better connection to the organization and its mission. So, how can organizations establish and manage mutually beneficial listening programs? To better understand what companies are doing in the area of employee listening and the extent to which employees are willing to participate, we analyzed data from the 2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Institute WorkTrends Survey – a broad-based survey of ov

Active employee participation in workforce analytics: A critical ingredient for success

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 28, 2016
Workforce analytics is a very significant development in human resources. It promises the potential for deeper understanding of the ways workers contribute to organizational performance. However, workforce analytics is not just about analyzing data to reveal exciting insights; it also requires the active involvement of a firm’s workers if the potential of analytics is to be fully realized. Without active employee participation, workforce analytics efforts face at best, restricted data sources and data sets that are incomplete and at worst, the risk of damaging employee relations and, ultimately, productivity. This white paper summarizes recommendations that will encourage enthusiasm for workforce analytics and active employee participation, using the FORT (Feedback, Opt-in, Reciprocal, Transparent) framework. The FORT criteria could prove particularly useful in European countries. This is because the 1995 European Union Data Protection Directive, along with certain local legislative pr

(DELETE)Mobile Data Security

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
Protecting confidential data while keeping mobile users productive. The terms Data Leak Prevention (DLP) and Container are beginning to dominate the mobile management conversation. Over the past few years great strides have been made in providing the tools and solutions that offer management and security for mobile devices; both for devices the enterprise owns and those that employees own. While these solutions generally meet the need to secure the device, they have been lacking in some of the more sophisticated security aspects that are commonplace in laptop and distributed network deployments. Specifically lacking are the robust DLP controls common in laptop management solutions.

Mobile Is The New Playground For Thieves

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
How to protect against mobile malware. Mobility is transforming enterprises at an unprecedented rate with the continued proliferation of smart devices, explosive development of mobile apps and increased access to work files. Employees are empowered by their organizations to be more productive at virtually any time and from anywhere, adopting policies for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and even allowing the use of personal apps for work-related activities. However, organizations have not kept pace with this mobility explosion by deploying the enterprise-grade security needed to protect their sensitive information. Hackers and thieves are seizing on this opportunity to penetrate networks and acquire sensitive work data from mobile endpoints. IT and Security leaders need a modern and robust security solution to proactively detect, analyze and remediate these mobile threats.

No More Chewy Centers: The Zero Trust Model Of Information Security

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 20, 2017
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption. This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

IT managers must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions based on it. The tactical challenge of keeping infrastructure and business data secure while keeping workers productive each day takes precedence. And even then, IT managers can find themselves choosing between security and productivity as they decide how best to spend limited time and resources. This whitepaper will guide you how to get deep visibility into relevant endpoint data within the platform, granting actionable intelligence that can have a measurable impact on your organization.

Cloud Object Storage Helps Banks Succeed As They Hurtle Into The Data-Driven Future

Published By: IBM     Published Date: May 22, 2017
Only a handful of industries have been transformed by the digital age the way banking has. Internet and mobile banking, digital wallets, and a raft of new and innovative products have redefined “the bank” from a local, brick-and-mortar branch to an anytime-anywhere process. The new banking environment has opened opportunities for national, regional, and community banks alike, which are no longer constrained to serve only customers located in the areas where they maintain a physical branch presence. But it has also brought challenges associated with collecting, processing, analyzing, storing, and protecting vast amounts of new data, from multiple locations and sources.
