SLA

Service Level Agreement (SLA) is that part of a service contract in which a certain level of service is agreed. A SLA is therefore NOT a type of service contract, but a part of a service contract. A service contract can contain zero, one or more SLA's. A contract containing SLA's is usually referred to as a performance contract. SLA's are becoming more and more popular. They are used extensively for provision of IT services, but also in other fields the popularity of SLA's is growing

Since the SQL Access Group created the Call Level Interface, ODBC has become the most ubiquitous method for connecting to relational database sources. ODBC was developed to allow programmers to access relational data in a uniform manner, regardless of the database backend. ODBC translates those generic commands into the specific esoteric commands of the database backend, so the quality of the driver directly determines the performance of the database connectivity layer.

Today's confidentiality and privacy requirements drive organizations of all sizes and industries to secure sensitive data in email. Often particular types of data need to be encrypted, such as credit card numbers, intellectual property, or client information. Organizations also need to protect confidential emails for particular groups, such as executive management, human resources or legal departments. Many organizations are turning to policy-based encryption to meet their encryption needs because it automatically encrypts data using content filtering rules that identify types of content or email for particular groups. Encryption is applied when the rules are triggered. With policy-based encryption, organizations avoid relying on individual users to secure important content.

White Paper Published By: Trend Micro SaaS     Published Date: Oct 08, 2008
According to experts at TrendLabs, spam now makes up close to 95% of all email and continues to grow. In the first three months of 2008 spam rates almost doubled over rates observed at the end of 2007 and TrendLabs predicts that average daily spam volumes will increase by 30 to 50 billion messages per day within the year.1 As spam continues to grow at dramatic rates, traditional on-premise email security products are failing to keep up. This limitation is one of the primary reasons that IDC predicts demand for hosted security solutions -also known as SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions-will grow by more than 30% annually through 2012.2 For context, the growth rate for hosted email security is projected to be more than eight times that of the traditional software email security market, and more than 60% faster than appliance-based email security solutions.

IT organizations must evolve into trusted service providers that adapt quickly, offer cost-effective, reliable, and flexible services to meet today's business initiatives. This evolution is not easy. It requires that the IT organization adopt an IT Service Management (ITSM) framework. Operational ITSM provides an incremental approach for companies that may not have the resources to finance and staff a large ITSM project.
