In today’s competitive work environment, attracting and retaining top talent is paramount and expensive.
Companies recruit high performing employees with deep experience, invest in training, and reward outcomes.
Yet while talent and experience are critical, new evidence suggests those attributes may not be enough.
It’s not simply how well a person can perform in a typical situation, but how quickly they can return to high
performance after an inevitable setback.
Resilience is the ability to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad happens. It
includes (learnable) cognitive and emotional skills that reduce the degree and duration of episodes of
discouragement, reluctance or defeat that often follow negative events. A resilient worker will quickly put the
event in perspective and search for alternative solutions while their less-resilient colleagues experience a
letdown or assign blame.
This paper describes how resilience, measured by the meQ Score, corresponds to w

The IoT is transforming the energy industry by eliminating tradeoffs between operation, SCADA systems, maintenance and new services for assets deployed in industrial and power facilities, buildings and across the grid.
When it comes to building the best IoT system for your business application, it’s vital to keep your use case and business requirements at the forefront of your technical design strategy. In the energy industry, accessing and collecting data at the edge from disparate, heterogenous, multi-site, fixed topologies and transferring that data efficiently to the cloud to perform analytics and action business decisions is still the greatest challenge. Mission-critical data collected from the edge is integral to energy facility operations and cannot be excluded or corrupted.
The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It's simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.
The status quo in network monitoring is no longer adequate for large organizations. It’s simply taking too long for enterprises with mission-critical networks to resolve and find the root causes of network incidents. To speed things up, enterprises must add dedicated incident response and root cause analysis capabilities that are 100% accurate and reliable to their network management arsenals.
It takes so long to diagnose, fix, and eradicate network incidents that network uptime and performance are suffering. Because of this, organizations need to embrace incident response and root cause analysis capabilities to accelerate resolution times and avoid the network downtime and service degradation that can cost them thousands, if not millions, of dollars per minute.

Simple voicemail has evolved into complex integrated messaging platforms and the generic black handset has been replaced by a plethora of devices. Service providers can become critical partners for companies looking to ensure availability of their voice network.
Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and effciency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational ef?ciency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.
As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services for layers 4 through 7 are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational ef?ciency.
Why It’s Time to Retire Your Traditional L&D Strategy (and Your Social One, Too) You’ve heard it a hundred times. Continuous learning is critical to your talent management strategy—and your organization’s bottom line. To that end, you’ve invested in a powerful learning management system (LMS) and social tools, not to mention great content.
Development initiatives are a critical aspect of growth, for both organisations and their employees, so how can companies evolve their learning strategies to meet the needs of the new workforce?
“Why Your Current Strategy for Learning is Broken And How to Fix it With the Power of Collaboration” will show you how making training collaborative, continuous, and group-led unlocks employee knowledge and shares it across the company.
When it comes to securing all the parts of a modern distributed network, endpoints remain
the most vulnerable outlier. Mobility has brought a flood of different devices that cross in and
out of enterprise networks on a daily basis. This public exposure, combined with inadequate
traditional endpoint security and a high degree of user autonomy, makes these devices
prime targets for malware infections and other forms of sophisticated attack that seek to
exploit the broader organization. And threat actors are finding enormous success along
To stay competitive, most organizations are currently embracing digital transformation
(DX)—including cloud services, smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and greater mobility.
These adaptations provide organizations with faster and more seamless access to critical
information, regardless of the device being used to access it. However, as distributed
networks expand and become more difficult to manage, the endpoint remains a weak link i
Virtually every business-oriented conversation Wikibon has with senior IT leaders
includes a discussion of digital transformation. The relevance to this research is the
increasing interdependency between organizations and the data they use, create,
access, share and store. Digital means data and lots of it; and this data must be
protected. The data requirements facing organizations today as a direct result of digital
initiatives are unprecedented and require new approaches for protecting and enabling
recovery for high value data assets.
Governments around the world are trying to keep pace with the digital tsunami and
new/evolving regulations will further pressure data protection and recovery
requirements. For example, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
states that organizations must take appropriate measures to ensure the ability to restore
personal data “in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.”
Beginning in May of 2018, penalties for non-co
One of the greatest challenges to any advanced wireless operation is the maintenance of continuous and economical service.

IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.
To manage threats to the enterprise and successfully meet compliance challenges, organizations need a comprehensive security strategy that can successfully do battle with inside as well as outside threats. Today, companies are increasingly leveraging security information management (SIM) solutions to build a clean, concise, and manageable process for dealing with the tremendous volumes of raw security information from disparate devices, applications, and databases.
Car data consumption is critically important to auto manufacturers. As more vehicles are produced with built-in infotainment systems, the cost of supplying them with live information and real-time updates via a data connection grows ever greater.
