Protect the network, use the network to protect students
Your schools use a growing amount of networked information and devices as an essential part of teaching and administration. Research on the Internet, laptops in class, distance learning, and online homework are some of the official technologies that your students use.
Unofficially, this list extends to mobile phones (with cameras), digital music and video players, blogs, instant messaging, social networking sites, and networked or online gaming. Behind the scenes are databases with student information, class schedules, attendance records, copies of exams and answers, financial transactions, and even video surveillance. All of these rely on a robust and secure network infrastructure.

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.
A significant challenge for many organizations has been enabling their analysts to find the "unknown
unknown." Whether that unknown is malware lurking within the enterprise or within slight variations in
fraudulent transactions, the result has been the same: enterprises continue to fall victim to cybercrime.

visual analysis capabilities with powerful analytics tools, IBM is giving the analyst team an effective
early-detection, cyberintelligence weapon for its arsenal.

In this informative webinar Jason Chester, the CEO and Director of Research for Infogencer, will outline his organisation’s findings on the business challenges surrounding absence management and share insights on addressing these challenges from both a technical and a business perspective.
We came to the above conclusion because even though suites solved many of the problems of independent, standalone modules to support integrated procurement processes in terms of data management nightmares, process inefficiency and visibility gaps that were common with first generation "best-of-breed" solutions, many mature organizations are increasingly finding that suites are not enough if they do not connect into larger enterprise processes and support the stakeholder organizations that procurement needs to work with. Are you with us? If you are, then you know that something else is needed: a source-to-pay (S2P) procurement

Read this eBook to learn the four key benefits of automated cash handling:
• Maximize your cash flow
• Gain more flexibility with open systems
• Reduce shrinkage and reconciliation
• Care for customers instead of counting cash

Consumers expect a seamless, high-quality experience in today’s mature app economy. They want brands to keep up with new technologies like geo-fencing and personalization, as well as the latest ecosystems like voice assistants and connected cars.
With this high bar for quality, QA organizations often struggle to keep up with:
1. Rapid Release Schedules
3. New Technologies (Voice, AI)
4. Geo-Awareness and Localization 5. Device Fragmentation
6. Unexpected Customer Use Cases
The cost of failure is high in QA. Time, money, and customer loyalty are all at risk when digital experiences don’t meet users’ high expectations.
There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
The goal of warehouse operations is perfect order fulfillment: to deliver exactly the items a customer ordered, on time and with optimal efficiency. The warehouse module of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution can help smaller warehouses achieve this goal. But ERP warehouse modules have limitations that can make it smarter for companies with more complex operations to turn to the added capabilities of an advanced warehouse management system (WMS).
El objetivo de las operaciones de un almacén es dar una respuesta perfecta los pedidos: entregar exactamente lo que un cliente pide, a tiempo y con una eficiencia óptima. El módulo de almacenes de una solución de planificación de recursos empresariales (ERP – Enterprise Resources Management) puede ayudar a los almacenes más pequeños. Pero los módulos de gestión de almacenes de los ERP tienen limitaciones y, en el caso de empresas con operaciones más complejas, puede ser más inteligente optar por las capacidades adicionales de un sistema de gestión de almacenes avanzado (WMS, Warehouse Management System).

A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.
