For the last 15 years, most office desktop software has been purchased in a "suite," a set of office productivity applications for word processing, spreadsheets and presentation designed to offer extra value, beyond their purchase price. Other products may include an email client, a browser, a low-end data base product, a forms designer, a forms fill-in product, various publishing aids (templates for both the printed page and the web), collaboration and communication and business contact management.

What defines cognitive manufacturing maturity? Our study found three stages of cognitive
manufacturing maturity. We call those organizations in the earliest stage Observers, followed
by Starters and Actives, respectively. These groups differ on two key characteristics: the
presence of an overall strategy for cognitive manufacturing, and degree of strategic execution
of multiple projects that enable higher project success and significantly fewer failed projects.
Strategy is the crucial enabler of higher maturity.
How do manufacturers get beyond the obstacles and barriers to increase cognitive
manufacturing maturity? The obstacles encountered by our respondents are tied to
organizational maturity. Overcoming them is fundamental to increase cognitive
In this report, we’ll first describe cognitive computing and how it gives rise to cognitive
manufacturing. Then, we’ll review specific study findings and recommend actions for
While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.

Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.
Digital transformation (DX) is fundamentally changing enterprise resource planning (ERP) — allowing businesses to transform their decision making, which is enhancing their business outcomes significantly as we enter the digital economy. Digital transformation is an enterprisewide, board-level strategic reality for companies wishing to remain relevant or maintain or enhance their leadership positon in the digital economy. Digitally transformed businesses have a repeatable set of practices and disciplines that are used to leverage new business, 3rd Platform technology, and operating models to disrupt businesses, customers, and markets in pursuit of business performance and growth. DX is driving businesses to rethink their technology strategy, and that includes moving beyond their legacy ERP and back-office systems.

Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how best practices for project management can assist organizations in experiencing all the benefits of agile development while continuing to maintain rigorous standards essential for successful delivery of safety-critical systems.

Server systems are, by definition, more important than individual endpoints. They must provide services to hundred, or even thousands, of endpoints and, naturally, must be secure. Traditional anti-virus (AV) solutions can provide protection for servers. However, constantly running AV processes, along with potentially frequent signature updates, can consume resources that could otherwise be used to provide application services to users. Read this evaluation by Tolly, commissioned by Lumension, as the dive into the impact on server resources of the alternative application control solution compared with traditional AV solutions from Microsoft Corp, Symantec Corp, and Trend Micro, Inc.
