hile Bitcoin took a bit of a beating in August 2018, it did little
to dampen interest in the obviously volatile cryptocurrency
market. Bitcoin lost 20 percent of its value in just two weeks in
August, according to some reports1
, and yet there appears to be
substantial optimism in the currency. According to one report2
, there were
96 new crypto hedge funds launched in the first seven months of 2018 and
when the Turkish Lira plummeted 20 percent in August 2018, there was a
surge in Bitcoin trading3
. Cryptocurrency is clearly here to stay and while that
may whet the appetite of brave investors, it’s also a magnet for crime.
Unsurprisingly perhaps, hackers are targeting4
exchanges but what many businesses and individuals may not
realize is that there is serious money to be made in actually
performing admin functions for the currencies themselves.
Called cryptomining, it can be big business. Some reports5
suggested that profits from mining have hit over $4 billion

Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
You understand the value Microsoft Exchange Server can bring to your company but the internal deployment delays, administrative complexity and cost of Exchange just isn't practical. Business and technical executives strive to find time to focus on running their business and avoid the distractions of managing a 24X7 application such as Exchange. The time and expense of running a Microsoft Exchange Server in-house may simply be too much for a company your size.
Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?
How are the roles involve
Virtually all organizations are realizing the importance of customer engagement. But in order to benefit, we must subscribe to the idea that consumers really can add value to our organization. And sometimes, that means removing the notion that we are the experts in exchange for the belief that we can learn a thing or two from our customers. The collective intelligence of the communities we serve is largely an untapped asset - a stream of valuable input that can help improve the decisions we make and shape the products we sell. This book explores the value of many - and the role that customer engagement will play in shaping the future of our businesses, our government, and our economy.
While free apps proliferate, many fall victim to the download-try-delete cycle, making the average lifespan of an app just 30 days. How can brands keep their place on a customer's mobile device? This whitepaper discusses how an app can deliver value to maintain its place on a customer's phone, and how added value can prompt customers to share some private information and opt in to push notifications. Dig deeper into the key performance indicators (KPIs) for apps that achieve this privacy-value exchange.
