Web applications are often the most vulnerable part of a company’s infrastructure and yet are typically given direct paths to the internet, thus leaving these vulnerabilities exposed. IBM commissioned Tolly to evaluate IBM Security Access Manager for its Web protection effectiveness and performance as well as its identity federation, risk management and mobile one-time password capabilities. Tolly found that IBM Security Access Manager provided effective, high-performance threat protection while conveniently providing identity federation features and flexible risk-based access options.
Blue Coat Optimized Video Delivery utilizes a combination of stream-splitting and caching technologies to prevent "video floods" that are caused when Internet video saturates a company's WAN or Internet gateway and keeps other applications from performing properly.
Social and technological changes are transforming the nature of network traffic, raising network costs and performance issues. Learn how to proactively manage the WAN as new Web protocols, consumer and corporate video and cloud-delivered applications become mainstream.
Blue Coat demonstrated bandwidth reduction of up to 95%, and up to 40 times faster response time across all the WAN conditions. Find out more about how the joint solution provides a tremendous improvement in the user experiences of SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise for all WAN conditions tested in this complimentary white paper.
ERP and Business Intelligence are essential to your success. Read this and learn how to improve productivity and decision-making. You'll see how Blue Coat WAN Optimization leverages proven solutions to achieve dramatic reductions in latency and bandwidth consumption.
The wide-area network optimization controller market is maturing rapidly, but remains dynamic, with a high level of innovation from vendors. Organizations looking to acquire WOC capabilities should identify their specific needs and conduct real-life trials before committing to any purchase.
A new generation of WAN optimization solutions can help network managers optimize consolidated data architectures internally, but also harness the power of the internet to reshape the way businesses leverage new technologies.

study by UPS and comScore found that 53% of shoppers who don’t use
retailers’ mobile apps state it’s because they like using the website better.
These shoppers see no benefit from installing these apps, as they provide
an inferior experience with no added benefits. Looking at the Apple and
Google Play App Stores, a large amount of retailers have apps with very
few reviews, and some don’t even have a mobile app.
Another problem is the performance of retail apps. 61% consumers expect
an app to load in under 4 seconds according to research by Dynatrace. In
its study, only one retailer made it under that threshold.
And that is just purely opening the app. What is the
experience once consumers get past that point?
The goal of usability testing, simply put, is to make sure that a user can complete the tasks they are expected to
complete. Usability testing doesn’t test whether or not the functions of the application, website or connected device work correctly, but rather that a user intuitively understands how to perform these tasks — and how easy or difficult it was to do so.
With usability testing, “close enough” won’t cut it. A product may have a superior architecture, a great set of features, good performance, scalability and a number of other positive attributes. However, all of this effort is wasted if the user experience is inadequate. An application, website or connected device that is not user-friendly is just as bad
as a buggy version and can lead to diminished revenue, product abandonment or a total failure. An application with poor usability can also negatively affect a brand
"Global professional services firm, Arup, moved from Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) to Cisco Umbrella. By implementing a secure internet gateway in conjunction with next-gen endpoint security, Arup secured access to the internet wherever users go, reduced its exposure to malware and improved the ability to detect, respond and remediate when necessary.
-Substantially reduced administrative time
-Accelerated response and remediation process
-Increased performance of cloud applications
-Reduced time to investigate"
Enterprise customers can take advantage of the many benefits provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to achieve business agility, cost savings, and high availability by running their SAP environments on the AWS Cloud.
Many Enterprise customers run SAP production workloads on AWS today; including those that run on NON-SAP DBs (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) or on SAP DBs (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). To support the demand of high memory instances, AWS have disclosed their SAP HANA instance roadmap (8TB and 16TB in 2018) and just made 4TB x1e instances available. A few examples of how AWS helped SAP customers cut costs, improve performance and agility include BP reducing 1/3 of their SAP infrastructure cost, Zappos successfully migrating to SAP HANA on AWS in less than 48 hours and enabling a major Healthcare and Life Science company to run BW on HANA with 30% better performance vs. on premise.
This guide is intended for SAP customers and partners who want to learn about the benefits and options for running SAP solutions on AWS, or who want to know how to implement and operate their SAP environment effectively on AWS.
Les clients professionnels peuvent tirer parti des nombreux avantages qu'offre Amazon Web Services (AWS) pour parvenir à l'agilité commerciale, réaliser des économies de coûts et offrir une haute disponibilité, et ce en exécutant leurs environnements SAP sur le cloud AWS.
La plupart des clients professionnels exécutent aujourd'hui leurs charges de travail de production sur AWS, y compris celles qui tournent sur des bases de données autres que SAP (Oracle, MS SQL, DB2) ou sur des bases de données SAP (SAP HANA, SAP ASE). Pour prendre en charge la demande d'instances à mémoire élevée, AWS a dévoilé la feuille de route des instances SAP HANA (8 To et 16 To en 2018) et vient de rendre disponibles les instances x1e de 4 To. Parmi les quelques exemples qui illustrent de quelle façon AWS a aidé les clients SAP à réduire les coûts et à améliorer les performances, ainsi que l'agilité, citons BP qui a diminué d'1/3 le coût de son infrastructure SAP, Zappos qui a réussi la migration vers SAP H
