The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors
For many years, traditional businesses have had a systematic set of processes and practices for deploying, operating and disposing of tangible assets and some forms of intangible asset. Through significant growth in our inquiry discussions with clients, and in observing increased attention from industry regulators, Gartner now sees the recognition that information is an asset becoming increasingly pervasive. At the same time, CDOs and other data and analytics leaders must take into account both internally generated datasets and exogenous sources, such as data from partners, open data and content from data brokers and analytics marketplaces, as they come to terms with the ever-increasing quantity and complexity of information assets. This task is clearly impossible if the organization lacks a clear view of what data is available, how to access it, its fitness for purpose in the contexts in which it is needed, and who is responsible for it.

In a recent poll, 65% of HR executives said they wanted to play a more strategic role in their organizations. So, what’s standing in their way? Work! The harsh reality is that HR spends 70-80% of its time on low-value, administrative tasks. This is why the first step in transforming human resources is getting rid of tedious and time consuming processes.

To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the
cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain.
IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations.
Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.

Restaurant managers are your aces. Just consider — they hire and schedule all of the right people. They ensure compliance with the industry’s legal minefield. They drive top-line financial goals. The list goes on, and on and on. But turnover is a big problem because there are too many things slowing them down:
- Basic task lists prevent optimal performance
- Critical information is stuck in multiple systems
- Pie charts and graphs don’t give them the actionable insights
Restaurant managers are your aces. Download the eBook to learn how to keep them from leaving.
The restaurant industry is buzzing about automation. With labor costs expected to double and consumer demand for a seamless checkout experience, many restaurants are looking at technologies that can automate tasks in the front-of-house. But there are back-of-house processes that have yet to be fully automated. While auto-counting your inventory may be a thing someday, it’s not here yet.
So if you can’t automate the inventory management process, you can at least use tools that automate its more cumbersome aspects. Maximum labor output, higher levels of accuracy, and better accountability are possible with a system that automates certain tasks and enable manager productivity for on-the-job success.
After reading this eBook, you’ll know:
• The many inefficiencies generated by manual, spreadsheet-based counting methods.
• The innovations being made to inventory management technology.
• How modern, mobile inventory management tools will help your managers reduce costs and increase product

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products.
Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.
Analysts struggle to incorporate new sources of data into their analysis because they rely on Microsoft Excel or other tools that were not designed for data blending.

According to the report, Benchmarking the Accounting Function 2015, only 56% of companies currently use automation to reconcile accounts. While many finance leaders want to change the process of reconciliation, the task can seem overwhelming.
However, developing a plan does not have to be complicated or time-consuming – and the benefits far outweigh the risks. A smooth, stress-free financial close adds qualitative value to the company by freeing employees to focus on strategic initiatives and ways to grow business.
A CFO’s Guide to Transforming the Financial Close shares how to build a center of excellence to streamline reconciliation so you can align objectives to overall business goals. Leading-edge automation tools can stop the madness of shuffling papers, sorting emails and searching spreadsheets, turning the reconciliation process from a cost center to a value-add for the company.

Customer service organizations are struggling to react to the pace of innovation and the explosion of channels and devices. To get ahead of these challenges, AD&D pros must deeply invest in automation — automated answers, automated conversations, automated agent guidance, and automated end-to-end processes. They must also invest in intelligence to ensure automated technologies evolve and learn from prior interactions over time.
Automation and intelligence quell the headcount increases. They will free agents from working on low-value or repetitive tasks, as they will only have to address highly complex customer scenarios or exceptions to standard operations. This also enables them to focus on building connections with customers to garner their satisfaction and loyalty.
Agility and speed are required in the cloud economy. Modernize data warehouses with built-in adaptive machine learning to eliminate manual labor for administrative tasks. With Oracle, businesses can now build data warehouses or data marts in minutes.
The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.

They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
