Per più di due secoli la produzione industriale in fabbrica si è distinta in quattro aspetti chiave: ripetibilità del processo, durata delle parti prodotte, produttività nel flusso di lavoro e un costo totale operativo ridotto. I flussi di lavoro in fabbrica sono stati ottimizzati per produrre le parti migliori in grande quantità e nel modo più economico possibile. Qualsiasi nuovo metodo di produzione o processo del flusso di lavoro che si proponga di affiancarsi a questo processo standard deve soddisfare o altrimenti migliorare questi elementi, che sentono ormai il peso del tempo.

For more than two centuries, industrial factory production has excelled in four key aspects: repeatability of the process, durability of parts produced, productivity of the workflow, and an economical total cost of operation. Factory workflows have been optimized to produce the best possible parts in volume, as inexpensively as possible. Any new production method or workflow process that hopes to be accepted alongside this standard process must meet or improve on these time-tested elements.

Lessons from the field on managing data science projects and portfolios
The ability to manage, scale, and accelerate an entire data science discipline increasingly separates successful organizations from those falling victim to hype and disillusionment.
Data science managers have the most important and least understood job of the 21st century.
This paper demystifies and elevates the current state of data science management. It identifies best practices to address common struggles around stakeholder alignment, the pace of model delivery, and the measurement of impact.
There are seven chapters and 25 pages of insights based on 4+ years of working with leaders in data science such as Allstate, Bayer, and Moody’s Analytics:
Introduction: Where we are today and where we came from
Goals: What are the measures of a high-performing data science organization?
Challenges: The symptoms leading to the dark art myth of data science
Diagnosis: The true root-causes behind the dark art m
This paper introduces the practice of Model Management, an organizational capability to develop and deliver models that create a competitive advantage.
Today, the best-run companies run their business on models, and those that don’t face existential threat. The paper explains why companies that fail to run on models are falling for the Model Myth—the assumption that models can be managed like software or data. Models are different and need a new organizational capability: Model Management.
Defining a model
Why models matter for businesses
Why companies fall for the Model Myth
A framework for Model Management
Practical steps to get started
The paper is intended for anyone in a data science organization, or anyone who hopes to use data science as a key source of competitive advantage for their business.

A new report from Gigamon ATR helps security practitioners understand how Emotet, LokiBot and TrickBot traversed enterprise networks without detection in 2018. It particularly focuses on the malwares’ command and control (C2) and lateral movement, as these behaviors expose opportunities to observe network traffic, discover these threats and reduce risk. The goal: shorter mean time to detection and response, a more mature security program and a balanced approach to mitigating risk.
This security overview provides best practices to help organizations looking to harden their environment. Designed
to help small- to mid-sized organizations stop an attack before one starts, this basic guidance will help reduce your
attack surface and outlines practical steps to securing your enterprise. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help
prevent initial compromise and stop attacks before they start.
This checklist helps to explain how to:
• Address software vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
• Eliminate exposed ports & services
• Reduce the chance of attacks delivered via email
• Limit browser-based attacks
• Reduce the attack surface across Microsoft Office applications
Lastly, we will share details on how Alert Logic helps organizations of all sizes get a comprehensive view of their
enterprise assets, find misconfigurations and vulnerabilities, and delivers endpoint coverage with an automated
quarantine response to stop malware in its tracks.
In our first cyber security checklist, we provided a security overview and best practices to help organizations prevent an initial compromise from occurring. In this guide, we will help you understand practical steps you can take to mitigate techniques attackers use once they have penetrated your defenses. Once attackers have access to a machine, they can evade detection by using fileless techniques and legitimate system administration tools to do their dirty work. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help mitigate the impact of an attacker. Lastly, we will hep you understand how partnering with a company like Alert Logic can provide better defenses to stop attackers in their tracks.

This playbook outlines how insurance companies can evolve their business architectures to meet user demand, reduce risk and comply with regulations.
Insurers’ employees, partners and customers are increasingly interacting at the digital edge, where commerce, population centers and digital ecosystems intersect. A distributed interconnection platform at the digital edge allows insurance companies and ecosystem participants to accelerate their transformation and effectively compete with increasingly nimble challengers.
Much has been written about the impact of technology on insurance, this most traditional of industries. Artificial intelligence (AI), connected cars, drones and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all becoming integral to the insurance and automotive industries. This becomes obvious when using your car’s navigation system – an everyday action that might well lead to a chain of events few would even think of today.

This document outlines how Insurance providers must optimize and scale for policy collaboration in a rapidly changing, omni-channel environment while shifting to providing new types of digital insurance. Additionally, shifting demographics is transforming interaction between insurance providers, reinsurers and customers. To address, Insurance providers must move to the digital edge adjacent to customers, clouds, partners and remote devices.

Digital transformation has moved out of the early-adopter phase and into mainstream adoption. According to the ZK Research 2018 IT Priorities Study, 88% of businesses now have digital
initiatives underway, up from 84% in 2017. The urgency of IT and business leaders is well warranted, as companies that master being digital will leapfrog the competition and be able to sustain
a market-leading position. Those that lag in their digital initiatives will fall farther behind and will
struggle to survive.
The key to digital success is having an agile IT foundation that enables businesses to adapt to
market transitions faster than the competition. However, there is no single technology called “digital transformation.” Rather, it is powered by the following four key enabling technologies:
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were
start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN
use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies
offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial,
A key benefit of an SD-WAN is that you need not replace any part of your existing network. SDWAN simplifies your overall network architecture and management, and can be phased in as a
parallel, overlay network. Sites are migrated in phases based on their type, location or any other
sequence of priority you may have. This paper covers the migration design thought process,
routing considerations, and a step-by-step migration path to insert your traditional WAN sites into
an SD-WAN architecture.
