There is no question that mobile computing is growing at an
exponential rate. This rapid transformation has seen security
concerns outpaced by the ease of use, flexibility, and productivity of mobile devices. When vulnerabilities are exploited, the security of mission-critical data becomes a serious concern. Here we take a look at three of the top mobile application security threats facing businesses today and recommendations on how to mitigate the risk.
In order to deliver quality patient care, Health First must exchange information with a large number of partners, customers, and vendors on a timely basis. Complicating this enormous task is the fact that Health First has over 15 business units using a variety of mission-critical applications.
Current trends show that the vast majority of companies are moving to services-oriented architectures (SOAs) and deploying Web services within and across their IT infrastructure.However, the success of those deployments is determined by the integrations and innovations that Web services make possible and how Web services affect the quality and performance of the mission-critical applications with which they interface.
San Joaquin County in California modernized a critical, but difficult to maintain, information systems infrastructure by transforming to BPM on a SOA foundation. San Joaquin County gained efficiency and greater visibility of mission-critical citizen
According to Baseline Consulting, approximately 32% of corporate data is contained in enduser computing (EUC) applications and approximately 68% is stored in IT controlled applications. These EUCs – primarily spreadsheets, PC databases (e.g. Access databases), BI reports, and word documents – are often stored on employee desktops and corporate file shares, and for the most part, are uncontrolled. They lack the proper safeguards and controls one would expect with IT controlled applications, including documentation, version control, back-up and archival, change control, testing, security and access control, and more.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
When a company creates a custom web application, it also creates a custom challenge. Traditional monitoring does not cover everything, but alerts if something goes wrong with the application are more important than ever. Learn the benefits of custom application monitoring and how NeoSpire can help.

In challenging economic times, companies look for new ways to control costs and improve efficiency.
To address these issues, manufacturers are taking a hard, strategic look at Maintenance, Repair and
Operations (MRO) supply. Commonly known as "indirect materials," MRO supply includes a vast array
of items that support internal operations, ranging from safety gloves and office supplies to spare parts for mission-critical industrial equipment and tooling.

IT departments are beginning to shift their focus from adding more storage to improving the efficiency of the storage systems already in place. Today, the name of the game is improving productivity and efficiency. Read on to find out more.
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.
This whitepaper defines a best practices reference architecture and detailed implementation guide for building a highly available two node virtualization or private cloud solution ideally suited for mid-sized businesses and branch office deployments.

The EF550 flash array leverages the latest in solid-state disk technologies along with a strong heritage of handling diverse workloads and providing superior business value through the acceleration of latency-sensitive and high-I/O applications.
This white paper focuses on the increasing importance of high availability as enterprises continue to build out a 3rd Platformbased computing infrastructure. As more mission-critical applications requiring extremely high availability are deployed on virtual infrastructure, enterprises must respond using the right storage solutions. The document identifies critical features in the storage infrastructure necessary to meet these requirements for availability and explores how one vendor, NetApp, meets them with its EF-Series AFA solutions portfolio.
Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.
An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server ""footprint""
