Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects:
• Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences
To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic
Keeping up with the new pace of change requires building agility into your business to adapt to change faster, while carefully overseeing your investments. The integrated solution of CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally) helps you effectively balance agility and governance by connecting the work of agile teams to your enterprise portfolio. Supporting an evolutionary approach to adopting agile, the solution lets you continue using traditional methods, while growing agile adoption to deliver on portfolio investments faster—with higher quality and predictable business results. A holistic view across all projects helps portfolio managers optimize budgets and resources for maximum return on investment.
How adopting a framework can optimize cybersecurity
Today’s threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Organizations with small IT teams are overwhelmed, often lacking the time or resources to investigate every alert. Failing to do so means a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. This can result in a devastating breach, damaging an organization's finances and reputation.
This white paper discusses how CrowdStrike is solving these challenges, by implementing the MITRE ATT&CK™ Framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and product features to help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. This provides many benefits, including time savings; adding advanced context to security alerts and information; and enabling a common, shared language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially concerning cybersecurity.

Dell servers have been optimized to help provide strong support for the latest ESX release, VMware ESX 3.5 Update 2, including enhanced performance for virtualized environments based on support for six-core Intel Xeon processors. Organizations that do not approach server virtualization with a clear plan risk developing a chaotic, inflexible infrastructure that wastes energy and resources.
Patton Harris and Rust and Associates has 13 branches. Management and IT needed a way to help these offices work on projects together to optimize company resources. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS gave PHR+A fast file access across branches using minimal system resources. No management is required as it operates in the background and real time byte level differencing not only reduces bandwidth usage and spikes but also the changes are sent as they happen – not when they are needed.
Jordan & Skala Engineers is a growing company with 5 offices. It needed a scalable solution to optimize their network and their resources as more and more work was distributed across sites. Using GlobalSCAPE WAFS files mirror instantly in real time using byte-level differencing. So as soon as a file is saved or closed, the file deltas appear in every other location on the network. Users are never waiting for files to upload, download, or open across a network.

Your goal is clear-produce high-quality goods while optimizing resources at every step of production. And in today's uncertain economy, cost-control efforts may never have been more important. Unscheduled downtime because of equipment failure can have a serious impact on your organization's bottom line. Download this white paper from IBM, and learn the basics of predictive maintenance, the benefits it provides manufacturing operations and the underlying technologies that make it possible. Predictive analytics helps you in a number of ways: identify when equipment is likely to fail or need maintenance and take action to maximize uptime and reduce future warranty claims costs; optimize allocated labor resources and spare part inventories, helping eliminate undue maintenance, prevent downtime and reduce inventory costs; and determine why certain production runs fail more often than others, identify the cause and analyze whether those runs warrant a recall.

Siloed systems and teams limit marketers’ ability to make sound assessments about performance and spending. Marketers around the world spend over one trillion USD each year. Yet, most of them still manage their marketing programs with a hodgepodge of spreadsheets and disconnected applications. Unnecessary costs, delays and poor collaboration plague marketers. Under increasing pressure to connect with customers while doing more with less, marketers who strive to optimize marketing performance through a single integrated software platform can make the best use of people, programs and resources. Today, you need a return on every dollar spent and a platform that aligns technology, people and processes to help create effective, efficient marketing programs that support customers for life.
Infrastructure matters. Today’s business environment is increasingly dominated by mobile and cloud-based platforms, and by the skyrocketing volume of new data. And with 70 percent of the average organization's IT budget being spent on operations and maintenance, infrastructure must be simplified, adaptive and responsive. Those are the characteristics of the software defined environment: IBM’s optimized, customized, virtualized IT platform designed to replace systems that assign server, storage and network resources manually. This eBook serves as an essential introduction to SDEs: what they are, and why your organization needs them now more than ever.
For banks today, having more ways to communicate with customers is a good thing. But it has also made it harder for banks to figure out where and how to most profitably commit their marketing resources.
Leveraging predictive analytics, First Tennessee Bank is applying the ultimate acid test. It’s combining a granular understanding of the needs of customer segments with real P&L data to optimize its marketing spend, focusing on programs that deliver the highest ROI.
First Tennessee’s ability to target its campaigns more intelligently has increased its response rate by 3.1 percent, cut key marketing costs by nearly 20 percent and enables the bank to get the most from its resources.
Although cloud is recognized as a technological change, its potential for driving business innovation remains untapped.

Data is critical to the entertainment industry and not taking advantage of it can keep you from creating great experiences and delivering the right content to partners. And, more than that, it can make it hard for you to optimize operations, get insight into the content’s value and stay ahead of the many changes in how content is created, consumed and monetized.
However, even with the new digital tools in production, there are many challenges to making use of this data. The effort involved can take time and resources away from film production, introduce security risks, and leave key data inaccessible to those that need it.
In this paper, we review:
• The current state of production data
• The challenges the entertainment industry is facing in making use of data
• A new “Smart Content” approach that is helping industry pioneers to reduce complexity on the set, drive reporting, and enable them to stay ahead of market changes
The need for robust network security is growing, but IT security teams, resources, and budgets are shrinking at many organizations. That doesn’t mean you have to scale down your growth or skimp on key IT security areas, but it does mean you need to optimize your resources, starting with your network firewall team. Resource optimization involves the automation and streamlining of operational processes and management workflows so that your IT team members can be freed up to focus their time, skills, and expertise on priority projects. Furthermore, optimizing your resources helps preserve your budget while eliminating budgetary conflicts and slashing administrative costs.
