Following a paper released by the US
Department of Homeland Security,
software security is fundamentally a
software engineering issue that must be
addressed systematically throughout the
software development lifecycle.
While it might be desirable to standardize end users on one or two types
of devices that all run the same operating system, most organizations
don’t have that luxury. Today’s users demand an extraordinary level of
flexibility and convenience—which means most organizations support a
vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs
and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even wearables
and IoT devices.
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists
"Your workers demand an
extraordinary level of flexibility and convenience in how they use their
Meaning it’s up to you to support a vast assortment of endpoints, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, smartphones, and even the Internet of Things (IoT).
And not only do your users expect support for a wide variety of form factors, but they also require cross-platform support for all major platforms, including iOS and macOS, Android, and Windows.
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms—for example, they may run Windows XP SP3, Windows 10, or anything in between.
Read onward and learn how the industry’s first cognitive UEM platform, MaaS360 with Watson, delivers a single, strategic management and security solution to drive your organization’s digital business transformation—no matter what endpoints your enterprise is putting to work."

HR leaders know that work isn’t working for millions of employees. But how do you drive engagement? Improve onboarding processes? Or keep hold of your best people?

To meet the work challenges of the future, business leaders need to create resiliency by connecting their employees.
But they also need to make sure those employees are bought in to the strategy. That’s why the IC department has a huge role to play. Workplace connects everyone in an organization using familiar tools like instant messaging, posts and video calling.
We’ve identified six attributes that are critical to building connected organizations, and which act as the cornerstones for digital transform initiatives.

For most companies, the Human Resources department has a long history of guarding sensitive employee data. Rows of beige file cabinets line a back closet where only those with a key and knowledge of the filing system have access to the personal information of countless employees. The greatest risk to this data has always been fire or water damage, but that’s quickly changing with the emergence of online data storage.
With a surge of 25,000 devices and counting, Dartmouth College needed its
new Wi-Fi to be fast, reliable and as smart as its students.
In response, Dartmouth, based in Hanover, N.H., began deploying new
campus-wide Wi-Fi from Mist Systems last summer. It expects to complete
the project throughout the campus in three to five years, according to Bryan
Ward, a network engineer at Dartmouth.
The IT department manages the Wi-Fi through a cloudbased wireless LAN and can already see the benefits of
better coverage and easier management. But the team faced difficulties when embedding the new system with
Dartmouth's centuries-old campus architecture, which is less supportive of campus-wide Wi-Fi than modern

Patches correct bugs, flaws and provide enhancements, which can prevent potential user impact, improve user experience and potentially save your technicians time researching and repairing issues that could have already been resolved or prevented with an existing update. Clients generally understand that their systems need to be patched, but they likely do not have the expertise to comfortably approve and install patches without help. When operating within the IT services industry, patching is one of the first areas that competitors auditing your clients will assess. Developing best practices to manage the risks associated with the approval and deployment of patches is critical to your IT department's service offering.

In some kinds of more traditional businesses the
finance department tends to swallow as much data
as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured
and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s
revenue vs target in the last quarter”.
These are undoubtedly essential for proper business
management, But periodic reports also mean it
can be too late for the business to respond. It’s
like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror.
Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a
sudden bend in the road!
Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved
business environment of today requires businesses
to have proactive, indicative business metrics.
Combined with more traditional metrics, these
mean businesses have invaluable and complete
insight in order to evaluate performance.
Proactive, indicative business metrics are found
across most successful businesses–and especially
amongst C-suite employees. These people know
that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven
This whitepaper will provide you with a better understanding of why more users are working outside of the traditional offices, why that is a challenge for it departments and why cloud-based management is ideal for mobile workers.
This survey report shows that while finance departments take responsibility for ensuring there are data-management strategies in place that include securing their organisation’s data, they struggle to manage the huge volumes of data and gain valuable insights from it. This affects both their confidence in the security of the data and their ability to manage it ethically. The number one priority of finance leaders is to enforce technologies that enable insights instantly, any place, anytime, to enable better forecasting.

The act of engaging with a customer or buyer is hardly a new concept. Nor is the inherent need to do so in order to achieve success. Companies initially had control of the relationship because they controlled the information. When consumers received the advantage of online access, they took the lead. But the terms
of engagement have changed again. Because of the mobile app, the power has shifted back to the marketing department.
Distribution executives can no longer afford to view their IT department as merely a cost center. In today's competitive landscape, information technology represents a strategic, cost-saving, revenue-generating differentiator.
Read this new brief and discover why IT continues to be a major business driver in this industry, supporting customer service, collaboration, decision-making and other aspects of modern distribution.

For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability.

The amount of data produced on social media is staggering – and so is the potential business value for enterprises that know what to do with it. Your customers are pulling back the curtains to reveal their desires and dislikes, but can your enterprise transform all of that data into actionable insights for people in every department?
The challenges for modern marketers in their effort to create a delightful customer experience vary from the sheer volume of digital channels to organizing and operationalizing the data they create. Add to that siloed team structures both within departments and cross-functionally and before long marketers begin to scoff at “challenge” and begin to think “impossible”.
