Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before, routinely working whenever and wherever necessary, using a variety of mobile devices and productivity apps. They expect their tools to deliver the capabilities they need to stay productive and efficient.
But what if they don’t? When a business doesn’t support its workforce with suitable, properly vetted apps, employees will often download and install the tools they like. This trend, called “Shadow IT,” is almost always a recipe for trouble. One-off, standalone apps don’t conform to business strategy and growth plans, but instead create difficulties — security, compatibility, compliance and technical support — that draw resources away from strategic work.
Enterprises routinely claim to be focused on the customer experience, yet few really keep that promise. What’s in the way? Fragmentation and complexity in both customer data and customer-facing processes. IIA spoke with Wilson Raj, Global Director of Customer Intelligence, and Jonathan Moran, Customer Intelligence Product Marketing at SAS Institute Inc. about how organizations can leverage technology platforms and analytics to become more completely and genuinely customer-centric – making connections in the right way, at the right time, and on the right device.

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.

The last decade has seen many exciting advances
in connectivity accelerated by the near universal
availability of smartphones and tablets – leading to a
highly interconnected world.
The security of networks - and the businesses and
individuals that rely on them - has become top of mind
for the IT Security professionals who are responsible for
ensuring the safety of the data and the networks where
this information is utilized.
As high-visibility security breaches occur - affecting
ecommerce, banking, retail and other industries - the
critical importance of the security of the infrastructure
these businesses rely on continues to grow.
Security in the workplace is a daily fact of life. From
using ID cards to control physical access, to entering
passwords to join the network, to using software to
monitor and prevent unauthorized access, all are
routinely used to protect critical assets and information.
However, there is one key area where many
organizations still have potential vulnerabili
Despite the six-year-old CAN-SPAM Act, spammers routinely abuse the law and continue to deliver their obnoxious email.

Spammers love to tailor their messages to the news and the season. Read this report to gain a greater understanding of current spam threats.
In a world where customers and citizens expect so much more from technology, the race is on to develop a finely tuned high performance IT function. Hopefully by reading this book you're in a better position to see how DevOps supports this imperative and can develop the strategies needed to reignite your business.

It is a truism that in any complex activity, the critical, defining decisions should be made as early in the process as possible. In ERP implementation projects this principle is routinely undermined by the nearly universal practice of separating acquisition and implementation activities into separate projects, performed by separate teams operating under separate control.

Employers may ask a consumer reporting agency (CRA) to implement internal
systems to evaluate background checks as part of the hiring process. An adjudication
matrix (also known as a hiring matrix) is commonly used by employers to designate
what types of crimes over certain time periods may make an individual ineligible for
employment. An adjudication matrix will typically contain labels such as “clear” or
“ineligible” that designate how the individual’s background check results lined up
with the matrix.

Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.
