HRIS solutions designed for very large organizations can be costly to set up and maintain, and often require the services of an army of consultants to keep them operational. Systems designed for very small organizations concentrate on either HR functions such as attendance and compensation, or on benefits management, but usually lack the ability to integrate the two areas. To be a practical investment choice for a mid-tier organization, a satisfactory HRIS solution must have its HR and benefits functions highly integrated. It must be agile so it can easily be kept aligned with the constant change in compliance laws, and it must be robust and secure, built on a tried and true platform foundation.
The purpose of this design guide is to present the requirements and considerations relevant to the transportation vertical along with design options, best practices and configuration guidelines. While this design guide is focused on Shortest Path Bridging (SPB-M) based networks, it also addresses data networking solutions applicable for this transportation vertical.
Although several modes of transport exist, this document focuses on rail (metro, heavy, light) and road transport. More specifically, this document focuses on the fixed network infrastructure underpinning the multiple systems that enable the safe and reliable operation of rail and intelligent transport systems.

Web Application Threats Are Evolving. Are Your Security Efforts Keeping Pace? Today, Web application security threats are not only becoming more abundant than ever, but also more difficult to detect, and more complex to solve. Many organizations are responding to these unique vulnerabilities with traditional network security approaches. However, sophisticated Web applications threats require a more sophisticated security strategy. What’s worked in the past won’t necessarily work today; and what’s more, Web application security requires a comprehensive solution, not simply a series of a la carte provisions. For detailed steps toward improving your Web application security strategy, download the VeriSign® Enterprise Security Services white paper, Best Practices That Improve Web Application Security.
Most large enterprises have launched an initiative to adopt service-oriented architecture (SOA), but SOA is not a solution that comes in a tidy little box. SOA is a new way to design systems, and it is more about culture than it is about technology. SOA will impact many aspects of an organization—from software development and operations to accounting and incentive systems. Governance is critical.
With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
It’s widely accepted that Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems are excellent tools for regulatory compliance, log management and analysis, trouble-shooting and forensic analysis. What’s surprising to many is that this technology can play a significant role in actively defending networks. This whitepaper explains precisely how real-time analysis, combined with in-memory correlation, and automated notification and remediation capabilities can provide unprecedented network visibility, security and control.

Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs):
• Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers
• Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections
• Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections
• One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated
with intravascular air embolism
• Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure.

The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As
mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN)
must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet
of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging
transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets
are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and
private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the
network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high
latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and
overall corporate productivity.
As connectivity options continue to emerge, end users are no longer tethered to the
office or to the localized applications and services that were trademarks of a primary or
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration

Data and analytics have become an indispensable part of gaining and keeping a competitive edge. But many legacy data warehouses introduce a new challenge for organizations trying to manage large data sets: only a fraction of their data is ever made available for analysis. We call this the “dark data” problem: companies know there is value in the data they collected, but their existing data warehouse is too complex, too slow, and just too expensive to use. A modern data warehouse is designed to support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling organizations to derive deeper business insights.
Key elements of a modern data warehouse:
• Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources
• Federated q
