The increased mobility of the workforce is changing the way we work. Business users want the flexibility to share and collaborate on content that drives their business while IT needs to ensure the security of that data, no matter where it goes. An effective enterprise collaboration solution must consider people, processes and technologies to be effective, but where to begin?
This comprehensive Buyer’s Guide offers guidance on how to develop your organization’s requirements with regard to:
• Risk management – avoiding data breaches and loss of information that can result in non-compliance
• Business productivity - allowing for secure collaboration while enabling teams to work anywhere on any device
• IT efficiency - supporting the full breadth of external business content requirements while integrating with existing applications and protocols
"Mobile and cloud deployment issues are dominating the concerns of organizations today. End-user mobility and flexibility versus IT control and visibility are the opposing requirements challenging even the most nimble of environments. Organizations are searching for several key capabilities to address this dichotomy:
• Infrastructure that is optimized for end users to drive down costs, simplify
acquisition, upgrade easily, and support policy management
• Flexibility in delivering workspaces to users—on-premises, cloud, and
offline—all within a unified workspace with single sign-on
• Management capabilities encompassing the entire ecosystem and providing
security, compliance, and management of day-to-day end-user environments

Most organizations today are scrutinizing technology budgets more and more. It helps to see technology investments in terms of total economic impact (TEI). Forrester Research quantified the benefits of implementing Identity and Access Management (IAM), and one of the top reasons supporting IAM was to eliminate the need for repeated user sign-ons, which increases user satisfaction. In measuring the TEI of one large organization’s IAM investment, Forrester uncovered several areas where SSO had a direct impact on improving the customer experience and driving revenue.
Learning Management Systems (LMS) allow companies to focus on the right component of the learning process – and that is the learning. Administrative activities like registering for training or recording training completion are automated. Required compliance programs can be delivered online, reducing costs. Managers can share training feedback that supports the company’s business goals.
"When contemplating offering Macs to your workforce, the question of cost inevitably comes up. “Macs are great, but I can buy two PCs for the same price as one Mac,” is a common mentality within IT departments.
However, when comparing the total cost of ownership associated with providing basic services, software, management and support, the outcome (surprising to some) favors Mac over PC. But how can this b
In a world where customers and citizens expect so much more from technology, the race is on to develop a finely tuned high performance IT function. Hopefully by reading this book you're in a better position to see how DevOps supports this imperative and can develop the strategies needed to reignite your business.
In a series of articles Paul Gerrard, a testing guru and consultant, discusses a range of testing topics. Test models are fundamental to testing and, in this article, Paul talks about the art of creating and using models. If testers are “shifting left,” pairing with developers or at least working more closely with developers, testers (and developers) need to be able to create models, learn how to articulate and share them, and support better collaboration.

Until recently, Manhattan Associates had used a traditional secondary storage solution to manage its large and rapidly expanding data footprint of ~1PB. Designed for traditional workflows, the company’s IT team realized it had become cost prohibitive to add features to their existing environment to support their VM level backups. Like most traditional storage options, the existing solution did not scale-out linearly, and complicated the environment by creating silos. With Cohesity’s scale-out architecture, the team was able to start small and grow their Cohesity environment on the go, yet keep it unified and simple. See how Manhanttan Associates achieved operational efficiency and lowered their TCO by supporting VM data protection, supporting native integration with the public cloud and providing simple converged solution for data protection, target storage and files.

Does it take forever for your sales team to close deals? There’s a potential roadblock you may have missed: your internal sales communication.
Take a look around—new sales reps are overwhelmed with processes and messaging during onboarding, your sales reps don’t pass discovery information off to sales engineers or customer support, and you aren’t always sure where deals stand, which makes it rather difficult to predict pipeline. If the members of your org aren’t completely aligned, you can’t take a prospect across the finish line or keep the org running smoothly.

In today’s era of digital transformation, time-to-market is the new name of the game, and DevOps is changing the way software is built. As developers have taken on a much larger role in the software development lifecycle, including developing secure code, building containers and ensuring quality, security cannot be separated from DevOps and engineering. Unfortunately, traditional software security testing tools have operated in isolation and have forced developers to change the way they work.
Checkmarx, however, has developed a more agile and responsive solution: Checkmarx’ Software Exposure Platform. Taking a holistic, platform-centric approach, the platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.

Dinosaurs are super cool, but there are some places where dinosaurs don’t belong, and one of those is in your fast-paced DevOps environment. We’re in a new world where traditional security solutions no longer make the cut. Software is increasingly complex, and when deployed at the speed of DevOps, it creates a new type of risk: Software Exposure. Legacy application security tools are too big, too slow, and too clunky to deliver the innovation needed to protect your customers in the 21st century.
The Software Exposure Platform from Checkmarx is an entirely new species heralding the next generation of software security. The platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.

Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
