The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.

To help your organization meet this objective, this interactive brochure explores an eight-step framework for better application performance. This framework begins with business requirements and culminates in the ongoing optimization of
your application performance. With its expansive application software portfolio, HP covers all of the steps in this framework.
When Bloomberg Television opened its state-of-the-art broadcast facility in the
company’s new European Headquarters in London last year, network engineers from
the company’s IT infrastructure team collaborated with Apstra to successfully pilot its
technology in order to gain visibility across and more effectively manage the network
fabric supporting the building’s media production systems.
Electronics and Software Engineering are quickly merging with traditional Mechanical Engineering to create a new paradigm in auto manufacturing: Mechatronics. Industry experts predict that this shift will bring about profound advances in automotive product development. Unfortunately, existing IT and process infrastructures do not provide sufficient capabilities to support the new paradigm: multiple data silos, a lack of standardized processes, and integration issues on a tool level (Mechanical, Electronic, Software) continue to pose serious obstacles to development efficiency, and remain a frequent source of delays, quality issues and cost increases.

Service Providers have unique networking challenges as compared to other environments. Factor, differentiating Service Provider`s network from others, is the requirement for 100% uptime. The network stability is crucial to their customers’ business and is, therefore, intolerant to disruptions or outages, which may damage the company`s reputation and market position, or even affect it irreversibly. Downtime risks can no longer be mitigated by simply over-engineering the network, but rather deploying network optimization solutions, based on the intelligent monitoring and automated response, versus manual network troubleshooting and brute force time spending.
B2B marketers, like their B2C colleagues, have diligently worked at perfecting the art of shaping customer and prospect perceptions. They have years of experience developing precisely targeted communications comprised of finely tuned content directed at the specific audiences they want to influence. Traditional brand marketing requires the engineering of messages that engender the right impressions about the company’s products in the marketplace. The traditional art of branding has grown and flourished for many years. But that’s all begun to change.
Tight schedules, cost challenges and lack of visibility can strain relationships in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) market. As new technologies raise owner expectations, you need to respond rapidly to customer needs with on-target solutions. You need to know how to anticipate and exceed owners’ expectations. You need to deliver on multiple fronts, including:
• Be a partner not just a supplier: Owners are looking for irreplaceable partners who transparently deliver value.
• Achieve more predictable outcomes: Partnerships build from developing plans, mitigating risks and delivering.
• Deliver on time and on budget: Firms must meet expectations precisely and avoid costly waste and delays.
• Be involved from day one: Owners now expect visibility and involvement across the project.
• Deliver something unexpected: AEC firms need to deliver unique, surprising solutions.

Agile methods are increasingly popular in application, enterprise and embedded development. Yet the question remains: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Find out how leading companies are beginning to exploit agile's iterative processes for far more than software.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists

Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers.
With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer.
This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.

As fraudsters grow in sophistication and
experience, they often aren’t acting
alone. Syndicated crime rings are big
business around the world. In the fraud
economy, different fraudsters specialize
in different aspects of the attack, from
gathering data and creating profiles of
targeted victims, to socially engineering
call center agents, to creating tools like
robotic dialers. These fraudsters might
work alone, selling their skills on the
black market. In other cases, fraudsters
are running entire call centers overseas
dedicated to executing attacks.
