The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for

The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.

You’re on the hook for more than just moving prospects through the funnel and delivering leads to sales. You’re responsible for managing the customer relationship. But how does it feel to the customer when that transition takes place? All too often, the first contact with sales feels like starting the conversation over again. And for customers who have already invested time and energy learning about a company and their products, this can be a jarring experience. Great composers use consistent melodic themes over the course of a piece. As marketers, it is our responsibility to ensure there is harmony and consistency over the full lifecycle of the customer relationship. But linking the conversations that marketing and sales have with prospects depends on your ability (and willingness) to share insights that are born from data.

Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including

The Dominion Group of Companies offers clients a wide range of professional services, including investment advising, trust services, wealth management, and insurance. Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the company has three main offices as well as independent affiliate offices in multiple locations throughout the United States. Dominion is a small but growing company, currently employing 40 people.
A recent opportunity for expansion of the trust side of the business required Dominion to branch out from its Virginia Beach headquarters, opening an office in Florida and relocating one of the firm’s principals to that location. A top priority during that transition was maintaining effective communication, despite the
distance, to limit any disruption to existing client services and workflows.

Experts say the demand for electricity, natural gas, and water will double or triple as billions of people join the digital economy, and the use of energy and water will grow while vehicles and mass transit go electric. One thing is clear – the digital economy needs clean, dependable, and affordable electricity. This should be a great outlook for power generators, distributors, and retailers, but decarbonization, deregulation, and decentralization are disrupting the century-old utilities hierarchy. A “Digital Energy Network” is emerging that reflects new structures of power generation, transmission, distribution, and retail. It will foster new business models and processes and transform work in a competitive and collaborative digital economy.

The enterprise data center has undergone several major shifts since the introduction of
computing as a business resource. Data centers have evolved from mainframes to client/server
to virtual servers, and then to being “software defned,” and fnally to their current state of disaggregation. Today, we sit on the precipice of the next major data center transition—the evolution
to an intent-based data center (IBDC) (Exhibit 1). Each transition saw the cost of computing
decrease and the importance of the network increase, and each enabled organizations to boost
the efciency of their data center operations and improve asset utilization—ultimately leading to a
better experience for users
