Location has become paramount to building new apps, services, experiences and business models. If data is the new oil, then location is the crude oil. This is why most of the top location platform players have been developing technologies to power next-generation autonomous mobility systems. And the “richness” of location data and real-time intelligence are becoming strong monetization opportunities.
The 2018 Counterpoint Research Location Ecosystems Update compared 16 location platform vendors, including Google, TomTom and Mapbox. Learn why the HERE Open Location Platform – described as super-rich, always up-to-date, and a neutral offering – is a leader in the location data arena.
Are automakers re-inventing the wheel with every new navigation program without creating user value? Users movement towards free mobile apps that mirror to in-dash screens may be the symptom of a negative cost-benefit perception.
But the automotive industry has an opportunity to change these market dynamics. By delivering compelling experiences that leverage their core advantages, OEMs can create touchpoints for recurring revenue streams from the IVI.
This white paper from ABI Research discusses the state of the connected navigation market, the challenges OEMs face, the industry paradigms blocking OEMs from creating customer value, and the advantages OEMs could leverage.

The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done.
Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks.
Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.
Welcome to the multicloud era - SaaS apps in the cloud, public and hybrid clouds hosting infrastructure, employees and branches accessing the cloud and internet from anywhere.
-300,000 OAuth-connected SaaS apps discovered
-84% of companies will use multiple clouds
-70% of branches have direct, anytime cloud access
Elevate Your Cloud Security with Cisco.
Your users, especially when working outside of the office, no longer need to always connect to the corporate network to get work done. They often connect directly to SaaS apps. And, let’s face it, employees also don’t turn on the VPN if they’re using their work laptop for personal use — which means they’re left with very little security protection.
Plus, many organizations are now using direct internet connections at branch offices, which means employees and guest users don’t get the protection of your traditional security stack. Not only are more offices connecting directly to the internet — it’s estimated that 70% of branch offices already have some direct internet access — but attackers recognize these weak points in their targets and have started exploiting them more.
To solve these new challenges, security controls must also shift to the cloud. This in-depth white paper describes how security must evolve to protect users anywhere they access the internet.

"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."

In the world of digital interactions, the margin between success and disengagement or abandonment is measured in milliseconds. With the exploding adoption of advanced smartphones and tablets, you need a mobile-first approach to engaging with customers and employees. And as your mobile initiatives are delivered at increasingly rapid rates, the quality and reliability of the mobile apps, mobile web and connected services that support them has become critically important.
For the technology teams delivering customer and employee services in the mobile channel, it is important to understand that performance monitoring solutions which work for the desktop cannot be simply applied to mobile. Managing the mobile end user experience requires an understanding of the challenges posed by the complexities of the mobile environment. This paper will reveal the 4 pillars of mobile performance, plus offer strategies for accurately monitoring mobile end user experience so you can continuously improve.
In collaboration with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), AppDynamics has conducted a survey of application management professionals and managers to determine exactly what IT organizations want and need from APM providers.
Here are some key findings from the research:
• Only 30% of companies currently have application-specific solutions to monitor apps
• 50% or fewer of the tools companies have purchased are actively being used to monitor apps
• 27% of application-related problems are detected by monitoring tools
• A “unified monitoring platform” is the top choice in a feature of an APM solution

Most large organizations deploy or intend to deploy a broad range of mobile apps to their employees for productivity, collaboration, CRM, ERP, analytics, and industry-specific business processes. Office 365 might be the productivity solution, but the IT team needs a central platform that can provide a consistent security and policy framework across all the mobile apps the organization will deploy both today and tomorrow. This whitepaper describes the MobileIron app security model and how it can be used to secure Office 365 for mobile devices.

Our unified, multi-OS EMM platform was built from the ground up to meet the needs of the modern mobile enterprise by reducing IT complexity, delivering a secure user experience, and protecting mobile apps and data on any device, in any cloud service, anywhere in the world.
The ways teams collaborate has fundamentally changed in the last few years. There are seemingly endless tools, apps and software that claim to transform the collaboration experience. Some do more to make good on that promise than others—and you can’t forget to account for the context for how they fit into your organization’s overall IT mix and processes. Given all this change, here are a few important things to know about team collaboration and the tools associated with it to help you get the most of collaboration for your company.
With a secure foundation in place to manage internal IT, many IT leaders are thinking about a foundation for the entire business. In the new world of mobile apps, cloud services, and the Internet of Everything, people, processes, data, and devices are all converging to reshape how day-to-day business is done. Companies are reaching out to customers and partners—and even intelligent objects like connected cars and monitoring systems—and modifying the products and services they bring to market as a result. To an unprecedented degree, the future of an enterprise lies in the hands of the CIO and her IT staff who orchestrate these connections and act on the benefits they bring.
IT leaders are finding new opportunities in an era of digital disruption. This executive brief provides a quick overview of how they are driving growth and increasing efficiency by securely connecting the digital enterprise with customers, partners, suppliers and distributors.

In order to meet the challenges presented by the use of mobile apps and cloud services in the enterprise, a new generation of identity protocols has been developed.
OpenID Connect 1.0 uses the same building blocks as the modern application architectures and APIs it secures—REST and JSON.
This allows it to profile and extend OAuth 2.0 to add an identity layer—creating a singular, cohesive framework that promises to secure APIs, mobile native applications and browser applications.
This paper introduces OpenID Connect (Connect), detailing its features and its application in enterprise use cases.
With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
• Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
• Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
• Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those
running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows
Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile
devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs.
At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an
interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a
keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps
that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing,
code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In
certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running
Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a
smartphone or tablet.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.
