Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.

For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise. A corporate venture capital fund for investing in outside startups can help a company see, understand, and respond rapidly to changes in the business landscape. But the parent company’s processes tend to bog down these funds.

And they must protect corporate resources across a hybrid environment while providing users secure access to these resources from a variety of devices. This report describes the trends shaping the IAM landscape in 2017 and how S&R pros should adapt.

The Internet has proven to be a vital communications medium for worldwide commerce, but as an open and unprotected global network it can also present a wide range of threats that can cripple any business organization. Several years ago, most Internet threats were relatively benign examples of a young adolescent’s technical expertise but over time they have evolved into increasingly sophisticated domestic and foreign attacks that are designed to capture financial, personal, or strategic business information. Threats now come in the form of deliberately malicious acts, and exploitative opportunities for hackers and/or organized crime. The impact is serious, and the landscape of victims is getting broader every day. In response, no organization can afford to have its networks remain unprotected.

As a manufacturer, you know the industry is changing. You’re expected to produce more, work faster and leaner, and find ways to make new products like those comprising the Internet of Things (IoT). Customer and employee expectations are also changing rapidly because our experiences as consumers shape our demands for business. As many factory employees are approaching retirement, a new generation is joining the workforce—a generation that wants the business systems they interact with to be as intuitive as those they use in all other areas of their life. A new report from Aberdeen explores today’s manufacturing landscape and outlines how enterprise resource planning (ERP) software forms a foundation that can support Industry 4.0 for smaller manufacturers looking to grow.

Government and public sector agencies are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business results. With access to real-time communication, collaboration, and social networking platforms, agencies can improve internal process efficiencies that help them provide better services to their constituents. But first, these agencies have to consider regulatory requirements like the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which require compliant use of these networks and the content people create on them.

Social Media Risks and Benefits for the Pharmaceuticals Industry Drug makers are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business processes. Social media helps your organization share information and exchange ideas with your customers quickly, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because social media is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. So, what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or doing so without careful planning, can be a costly mistake.

Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.

The role of IT is fundamentally changing from a cost-efficient enablement technology to a more strategic element of the enterprise. For companies born before the digital era, IT is a key player on their path to digital transformation; for more recent businesses designed with technology at their core, IT represents a foundational pillar on top of which everything else is built. With this shifting role, IT’s decades-long emphasis on TCO is being eclipsed by a new-found focus on security and automation. Whether it’s the continuous risks posed by a dynamic threat landscape, the threat of digital disruption, or an inability to keep pace with the latest trends, virtually every enterprise needs to be more agile. And, with the continued evolution of compute, storage, and applications, networks have been exposed as a bottleneck to change.

Today’s IT departments face a unique set of challenges. On one hand, they have evolved from helpdesk support teams to key business enablers and must maintain increasingly complex IT landscapes while combatting significantly larger cyber security threats. On the other hand, they have to manage constant change with fewer resources and static, or minimally-increasing, budgets. As a result, many are looking to reduce costs while increasing efficiency and productivity. Some, in fact, are looking to Device as a Service, or DaaS. If you're looking for more reasons to convince your CFOs that DaaS is a smart move, download the whitepaper to explore five big benefits of deploying a best-in-class DaaS solution.

IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation. Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide: • Improved infrastructure management and flexibility • More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers. • Better IT cost management In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.
