Sophisticated banking requires sophisticated computing systems. But which systems offer the greatest chance for success? Many banks are discovering that the answer can be found within their on-premise data centers – the mainframe computer.
Mainframes have become a modern platform for innovation. When operating in a hybrid cloud environment, mainframes provide cost flexibility, scalability, agility, sophistication and unmatched security. And they support innovation, business transformation and new types of monetization. The power of mainframe computing is being rediscovered. Specifically, in a recent 2017 survey of banking executives, we found that:
• 50 percent said they believe hybrid cloud – and the systems that underpin it – can significantly lower the cost of IT ownership
• 47 percent said they believe mainframe enabled hybrid cloud can improve operating margin
• 47 percent said they believe dual-platform hybrid cloud can accelerate innovation.
While innovation and improved p
Encryption, if properly deployed and managed, is one of the most powerful tools that organizations can
use to avoid costly and embarrassing data breaches. Yet organizations struggle with the complexity
associated with the technology that often stems from a history of siloed investments of point solutions
designed to largely address pools of regulated data associated with a compliance mandate.
Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?
How are the roles involve

Leaders of the Inc. 5000—some of the fastest growing private companies in America—are overwhelmingly optimistic about 2017, and they are investing accordingly.
This was just one of the key findings of the recent Oracle/Inc. study, "The Talent and Tech Driving America’s Fastest-Growing Companies."
So just how optimistic are they?
Very optimistic. Almost nine out of 10 respondents (89 percent) described themselves as either “extremely” or “very” confident about their prospects for success in 2017. Buoyed by this enthusiasm, the majority are growing virtually all aspects of their businesses.

Data. It seems to be everywhere today and yet we can never get

-- our problem is the difficulty piecing together, understanding and
finding the story in all the data that’s in front of us.
In software testing in particular, the need for consolidated,
meaningful test metrics has never been higher. As both the pace of
development and the cost of delivering poor quality software
increase, we need these metrics to help us test smarter, better and
Fortunately, business intelligence now exists to make this goal a
reality. The analytics these tools provide can help drive efficient
and effective testing by providing teams with insight on everything
from testing quality and coverage to velocity and more. And this
knowledge can position the QA team as trusted experts to advise
the entire software development team on steps that can ensure a
better quality end result.

If you’re in the software development business, there’s no doubt you’ve heard of, dipped your toe into or even experienced the joys and pains of agile methodology.
The Agile Method promotes adaptive planning, early delivery and continuous improvement, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It’s quickly becoming the gold standard for software development. And, as the agile world has heated up, so has the pressure on testers to produce timely releases without sacrificing quality.
With the fast pace of Agile, there is rarely time to test everything, so requirements must be prioritized and testing automation is deployed where possible.
With this guide you’ll learn the importance of agile testing and the different types of testing, agile methodology, and our predictions on where the agile movement is headed.
The concept of an automated home is not a new one: the idea has been floated since the 1930s at World’s Fair venues, and in popular culture as TV shows and movies imagine home life of the future – solidifying the public’s view of the benefits of home automation.
In the 1980s, modern versions of the automated home began to turn up in the marketplace. The concept of the “connected house” was first introduced by the American Association of Homebuilders, and formed the basis of what we now consider to be “home automation.” The connected house presented a new way to wire, connect, and control all of the devices in the modern home. However, it proved to be too expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to construct, and became limited to the luxury homebuilder market.

Which questions have you overlooked and why do the answers matter?
According to Gartner, “OT SRM (security and risk management) leaders must ask the right questions during the technology procurement process to achieve long-term success in their security investments.” Further, Gartner states, “Translating IT security practices and copying IT security technology will not result in a secure operational technology (OT) environment.”
By reading “7 Questions SRM Leaders Aren't Asking OT Security Providers,” you’ll learn which questions to ask, why they matter, and be armed with follow-up guidance to make smarter decisions. Questions covered include:
- Does the Solution Provide Asset Discovery to Enable Operational Continuity and System Integrity?
- Does the Solution Detect and Alert on Known Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures?
- Does Your Solution Provide IT Support in Addition to OT?
- Does Your Solution Support Secure IT/OT Alignment?

Les avancées du numérique révolutionnent la manière dont nous travaillons, en apportant des innovations de façon permanente dans notre quotidien de travail. Ces technologies très prisées ont renforcé les attentes, obligeant les organisations à développer l'agilité métier à des niveaux sans précédent.
Même si les opportunités annoncées sont prometteuses, nous sommes confrontés à de nouveaux freins qui peuvent faire obstacle à la réussite, comme la nécessité d'innover rapidement, de minimiser les coûts et de répondre rapidement aux pressions exercées par la concurrence.
Historiquement les notions de gouvernance, de conformité, de contrôle et d'audit n'ont été pensées qu'après coup dans les modules financiers des logiciels ERP classiques. Ce sujet a longtemps été ignoré à l'occasion de la conception, du développement et de l’évaluation des logiciels de gestion d’entreprise. Le contrôle n’est pas aussi urgent que le traitement des transactions, pas aussi visible que le reporting financier ou pas aussi passionnant que le décisionnel. Il vient donc souvent dans un second temps.
De nos jours, la gouvernance est devenue centrale. C'est sur ce précepte que Workday a conçu ses solutions.
Au début des logiciels de gestion, dans les années 80 et 90, le contrôle était loin d'être une priorité. Les lois Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II et IFRS n’existaient pas encore et « l’audit hors logiciel » était monnaie courante. Les « gros ERP » ont résolu ce problème comme ils le pouvaient, en rachetant des technologies ou en créant des fonctionnalités qui ont été ensuite intégré
