Since it first started providing air passenger services in 2000, JetBlue has been
innovating. It was the first airline to embrace dot.com transactions and electronic
ticketing, and continues to churn out industry-leading inventions as described
here. When business needs changed in 2014, JetBlue embarked on very robust
digital transformation based on TIBCO integration and analytics technology—and
the company was recognized with the first-ever TIBCO Trailblazer Impact award
for the incredible effect this project was having on its strategic differentiation. In
this case study, Director of Shared Development Services Andi Azzolina describes
the objectives, initiatives, capabilities, and achievements making up JetBlue’s
journey towards becoming the most caring travel provider in the world.
Healthcare IT is in the midst of a revolution. Far from its leaky-ceiling basement beginnings, healthcare information technology (HIT) is now a strategic business differentiator with a key to the executive washroom. Challenged to innovate new patient and provider application services while maintaining traditional client-server applications, HIT teams are seeking ways to ensure investments in the management and maintenance of traditional systems don’t prevent the delivery of new digital experiences now and into the future.

DS Services, a distributor of leading beverage brands to residential and business customers, employs more than 3,500 drivers nationwide. Tracking its drivers – and ensuring they’re qualified to be behind the wheel – isn’t easy. “Reviewing motor vehicle records (MVRs) can take weeks, as every state reports violation information differently,” says Jason Gay, DOT compliance administrator for DS Services. “I was spending 12 to 15 hours a week on paperwork alone. It was time to simplify the process.”
DS Services originally turned to SambaSafety to help reduce paperwork and increase efficiency; however, by incorporating continuous driver monitoring into its safety program, DS Services is able to impact its business in . other positive ways.
Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.
The WannaCry ransomware attack in May
2017 crippled the UK’s National Health Service
(NHS) and disrupted a range of organizations
across 150 countries. Despite being a relatively
unsophisticated attack, WannaCry was
able to make such a global impact due to
preventable vulnerabilities that had largely gone
unaddressed. There were many more attacks in
2017, including high-profile breaches at Uber
and Equifax, where heeding cyber-security
recommendations may have reduced the impact
The scale and sophistication of cyber-attacks is
not slowing down – ranging from phishing scams
to cryptocurrency-based cyber-attacks, to statesponsored
attacks on industrial control systems.
These attacks present an ever growing challenge
and serve as a reminder that organizations
cannot afford to be complacent in the face of
cyber threats. We’re living in a time when cyberattacks
are a matter of when, not if, and security
professionals must focus on mitigating their
extent and damage.
This report, conducted by SC Media and sponsored by Fidelis asked security leaders, decision makers and influencers what they were most concerned about, what their C-Suite was most concerned about, and what they’re doing (or planning to do) about it. As we start off 2018 it is clear that cybersecurity is ripe for transformation. The focus has shifted away from tactical technologies that provide more proverbial fingers in the dam and towards a strategic approach that focuses on delivering quantifiable improvement to the effectiveness and efficiency of security operations.

Law firms have received two dramatic wake-up calls about the vital importance of data
security in the last two years. First, there was the leak of 11.5 million documents from
offshore law firm Mossack Fonseca, known as the Panama Papers, which became public
Then came the massive cyberattack on prominent global law firm DLA Piper
in the summer of 2017.2
As we will explore, despite the industry’s aversion to media
coverage of such attacks, less-visible breaches involving the legal profession are being
reported worldwide in ever-increasing numbers.

To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.

Think about all the ways your life today is different than it was ten years ago. Think about how you
shop, how you get around, how you plan travel, and how you stay in touch. So many things that used to
be a hassle are now almost effortless.
If your life feels different, it’s because you’re living in a new era – what experts are calling the 4th
Industrial Revolution. You’ve probably heard some of the more catch-phrased components – big data,
artificial intelligence, deep analytics. Some of these still seem like science fiction, but they are very real,
very active, and crucial parts of what we at Corrigo call the Intelligence Economy.
In the Intelligence Economy, data is collected, crunched, and activated to solve problems and create
greater value for customers, partners, and employees. It’s the information, insights, and automations that
enhance experiences, predict needs, strengthen connections, and deliver the right info or action at the
right time, in the right way. And the Intellig

"The term Value Network describes enterprises that truly connect
into a network of partners that collaborate and communicate
with lightning speed and agility. The supply chain is now
overshadowed by interconnected Value Networks. One example for Value networks applications is the digital twin, where the physical environment is replicated in a virtual model to harmonize new product design, process design and manufacturing design with planning, logistics, service and execution. When the virtual world and real world truly work together, we are able to speed up decision-making, reduce risk and cost, deliver great customer experiences, and minimize waste to make businesses more sustainable. Dassault Systèmes DELMIA,powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, delivers the solutions to industries and service providers to transform their operations and orchestrate their entire Value Network."
This paper will explore best practices for identifying and eliminating seven types of waste: Waiting, handoffs and task switching, motion, extra processes, extra features, partially completed work and defects.
Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that's changed. New 'cloud based' services, such as those offered by Qualys, are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What's more they're even more affordable. With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security.

Getting the most out of A/B and other controlled tests.
In the fast-moving digital world, even experts have a hard time assessing new ideas. Case in point: At Bing a small headline change an employee proposed was deemed a low priority and shelved until one engineer decided to do a quick online controlled experiment—an A/B test—to try it out. The test showed that the change increased revenue by an astonishing 12%.
That experience illustrates why it’s critical to adopt an “experiment with everything” approach, say Ron Kohavi, the head of the Analysis & Experimentation team at Microsoft, and Stefan Thomke, an HBS professor.
In this article they describe: How to properly design and execute A/B and other controlled tests

In April 2014, Nissan opened a new production plant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with an annual production capacity of 200,000 vehicles and 200,000 engines.
Along with a target of reaching 5% market share in Brazil by 2016, the plant’s opening was aligned with Nissan’s efforts to achieve 8% global market share, part of the “NISSAN POWER 88” five-year mid-term management plan initiated in 2011.
To help align their strategic and business goals with their use of technology, Nissan chose Red Hat JBoss BRMS to replace their legacy system.

For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk.
For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact

Your security products send alerts when a cyber attack strikes. Your incident response plan tells you what to do to block the attacker’s action and recover normal operations. But do you know how or where the attacker was able to get into your environment? Do you understand the tactics, techniques and procedures the attacker used?
In short, to move to the next level of security, organizations need a way to both understand and manage threat intelligence. Because an organization that can uncover the context of a threat can also better respond to it. Learn more about the impact of security threats from this whitepaper.
