As the healthcare industry continues to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and greater coordination of care through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater to use technology to truly improve how healthcare professionals interacts with patients. However, growing dependence on your network for everything from medical records to billing information can also mean that healthcare networks hold greater amounts of data than ever before. This makes them a tempting target for hackers.
Businesses need to plan for unforeseen events that can disrupt productivity, impair the customer experience, and possibly even threaten a business’s existence. A disruption every business needs to plan for is any event that destroys valuable data, inhibits access to data, or causes downtime of core applications.
Consider the staggering amount of information your company stores electronically. What if an unforeseen event destroyed all financial records, client contacts, and application data? You wouldn’t be able to send customers accurate invoices. Your marketing efforts might be undermined. You would lack key metrics for measuring quality, profitability, and more. The losses could be staggering.
In every aspect of life, it’s smart to plan for unexpected events. That’s especially true for two plans every business must have: a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan.
As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.
In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to healthcare and other networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more and more key information on our network, we increase our risk at risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data.
In this white paper, we’ll look at Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, why they pose a threat to hospitality networks, and how to protect against them. As we are expected to host more information on our network, we increase our risk for an attack that can shut down vital services or serve to support a malicious actor out to steal private data. Customers expect to be able do everything online, and won’t tolerate any interruption in service. This expectation inhibit a situation where an attacker is holds your web services hostage, and you have to choose between paying them off or apologizing to a lot of angry customers.

Mobile security presents one of the federal government’s biggest information technology challenges. Read the Lookout report to learn about the greatest risks, current security solutions, and the future for BYOD.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.

Formerly, buyers were limited in the ways they could gather product information. But because of the web and social media, buyer behaviors have changed. Because buyer interactions can number in the thousands or millions, businesses must use automated tools to personalize the buyer’s online experience and drive them toward a purchase decision.
As the volume of data coming into organizations – from both internal and external sources – continues to grow and makes its way across departmental systems in many different formats, there is a critical need to create a single, holistic view of the key data entities in common use across the enterprise. Master Data Management (MDM) aims to accomplish this goal. Not surprisingly, MDM has become a significant priority for global enterprises, with the market expected to triple from $9.4B to $26.8B by 2020 according to analysts.
The reality, though, is that while seemingly everyone is investing heavily in the tools to manage data, few are putting a great enough emphasis on the data itself. And that’s a problem. Poor data quality is said to be costing businesses $3.1 trillion annually – and that’s just in the US alone. The information being put into MDM tools must be mastered first and foremost.
It is becoming increasingly more obvious that for data to have any real value, it must be in motion. It must flow. “All entities move” Heraclitus added, “and nothing remains still.” These ancient musings have startling relevance to the modern challenges and benefits of Master Data Management (MDM) programs across global enterprises. The entities he referred to were more philosophical in nature, yet it is no coincidence that the entities of our commercial world – customers, vendors, prospects and the relationship between them – are in a constant state of movement and change.

Unfortunately, many business owners either fail to see the value in ongoing training or don’t have the budget for it. Competition is fierce, margins are tight and learning programs can fall by the wayside. Sometimes the tried and true methods still get the job done. But all too often, on-the-job training is unengaging, expensive and inefficient.
El retorno de la inversión de la digitalización se puede acelerar reduciendo costes o aumentando ingresos.
Según se detalla en «El próximo gran paso en fabricación: construir un Ecosistema industrial digital», casi dos terceras partes de los fabricantes esperan que las tecnologías de fabricación digitales, les ayuden a reducir los gastos generales al menos en un 11%.
A causa di margini più ridotti, maggiore concorrenza globale, clienti più esigenti e frequenti variazioni delle normative, le aziende di produzione di processo devono affrontre sfide sempre più impegnative nella gestione efficiente ed economicamente vantaggiosa del ciclo di vita dei prodotti.
