Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security
investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing
the number of consoles needed to manage the security infrastructure. Network security vendors have
a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a
unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps
automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure
component detects a threat.

Documents are an integral component to the successful operation of an organization. Whether in hardcopy or digital form, they enable the communication, transaction, and recording of business-critical information.
To ensure documents are used effectively, organizations are encouraged to continually evaluate and improve surrounding workflows. This may involve automating elements of document creation, securing the transfer and storage of information, and/or simplifying the retrieval of records and the data contained within. These types of enhancements can save time, money, and frustration.
This white paper will discuss top trends and requirements in the optimization of document-related business processes as well as general technology infrastructures for document management. It will also address how some office technology vendors have reacted to these trends to guide their design and development of products, solutions, and services.

Today's technology is getting more and more complex, and it's moving from the lab to homes and offices faster than ever. Increasing competition, expanding markets, and a growing expectation for seamlessness mean IoT and SaaS companies alike are looking for a thorough but fast-paced means to validate the quality of their products and releases.
This e-book gives a straight-forward introduction to Customer Validation -- the modern framework for beta testing. It anchors the four key components of traditional beta (people, products, environment, and time frame) around the needs of present-day product development. This includes: establishing the building blocks for thoroughly testing interoperability, creating accurate user scenarios, carving out channels for direct customer interaction, and identifying solutions that will delight your audience.
Amazon Web Services has a long history of successfully supporting Microsoft workloads, with hundreds of thousands of customers across a wide variety of industries running their Microsoft workloads on AWS.

The rapid adoption of Office 365 means that work created using the Microsoft product contains a large amount of the business world’s sensitive information. In fact, in most enterprises using Office 365, more than half of that highly valuable information — including business plans, sales data, product designs, M&A details and financial forecasts — is contained within Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Outlook and other Microsoft software. Securing the information created with its products has emerged as a primary concern for CSOs, CIOs, IT departments and other C-level executives.

Customer service and contact centers are on the front lines representing organizations. Their successful handling of service issues helps deliver on the promise of a great customer experience. To continue meeting the demands of customers — while fulfilling the organizational goal of delivering a differentiated
service experience — the modern customer service organization requires a seamlessly integrated front-office to back-office enterprise applications architecture and set of processes. As products and services become more technical in nature — think IoT devices — this interconnectedness is essential. Systems and customer support staff must be informed and enabled through technology to provide a contextualized experience that meets the customer's needs. Consistency across channels, proactive service, knowledge of a customer's past service requirements, technical skills, and rapid assessment and response will be essential requirements for modern customer service, which in turn creates

The retail world is being transformed by e-commerce, mobile devices, and more competition than ever before. Retailers are using numerous customer-facing and back-office mobile apps, SaaS applications, and legacy systems — all of which are generating more data than ever before about their customers, providing valuable intelligence to create greater customer lifetime value, brand loyalty, and cross-selling across brands and products. Learn how harnessing that data can help retailers cut costs, retain their customers and generate more revenue.
For the last 15 years, most office desktop software has been purchased in a "suite," a set of office productivity applications for word processing, spreadsheets and presentation designed to offer extra value, beyond their purchase price. Other products may include an email client, a browser, a low-end data base product, a forms designer, a forms fill-in product, various publishing aids (templates for both the printed page and the web), collaboration and communication and business contact management.
The insights provided by more than 700 Chief Human Resource Officers around the world show how workforce investment is shifting. Companies are beginning to focus more on growth, expanding into new markets and offering new products and services. But to make the most of potential growth opportunities in today’s dynamic global marketplace, organizations need to find ways to address the “borders” that are currently impeding their workforces.
Based on the key capability gaps revealed in this study, we believe organizations should focus on three critical workforce imperatives: cultivating creative leaders, mobilizing for speed and flexibility and capitalizing on collective intelligence.
Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.

In conjunction with Forrester Consulting, Microsoft commissioned a Total Economic Impact study to examine the potential return on investment businesses can receive through the deployment of Office 365. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an Office 365 implementation, we interviewed four existing customers and surveyed 72 midsized organizations about the use of Microsoft business products the SaaS platform, including Office Professional Plus, Exchange, Skype for Business, SharePoint, Yammer, and OneDrive.
According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Office 365 is Microsoft’s most strategic API. But to realize
the potential of this business collaboration platform, Microsoft and its partners have to convince
business and IT leaders that it offers levels of security, privacy, and compliance that are equal to or
higher than those of their existing on-premise solutions. Even though a high percentage of enterprises
are adopting cloud storage and compute within their businesses, the adoption of cloud-based content
and collaboration products is by no means universal. Concerns relating to governance, risk, and
compliance with regard to cloud services are understandable, but it is not unusual to find them
Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) businesses can receive through the deployment of Office 365. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks
associated with an Office 365 implementation, we interviewed four existing customers and surveyed 72 midsized organizations (with 150 to 2,000 users) about the use of Microsoft business products the SaaS platform, including Office Professional Plus, Exchange, Skype for Business (formerly Lync), SharePoint, Yammer, and OneDrive.
Our research found that a sample composite organization (which switched from an on-premises 2010 version solution to Office 365) had total present value benefits of $3.4 million versus total present value costs of $1.3 million, resulting in a net present value (NPV) of $2.1 million.
