In today’s markets, customer identities and the personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise. Managing these digital identities — from first registration and login to the later stages of the customer relationship — and extracting business value from the associated data are complex tasks, commonly referred to as customer identity and access management (CIAM).
When implementing a system to collect, manage, and utilize digital identity and customer data, companies have two basic choices: in-house development or buying a dedicated solution from a vendor specialized in CIAM (i.e., build vs. buy).
Read this white paper for an in-depth analysis of CIAM implementation options, including:
? Must-haves for a successful, enterprise-grade CIAM system
? Pros and cons of implementation options, ranging from in-house software development to commercial off-the-shelf solutions
? A real-world case study that illustrates the ROI of an effective CI
To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
This White Paper, sponsored by Pitney Bowes Marketing Solutions, a leading provider of web-based co-op marketing tools, examines the trends and challenges faced by companies looking to achieve more business growth from their trade marketing efforts.

In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
This part of the CVD describes design considerations to implement a successful BYOD solution and different deployment models to address diverse business cases. Other parts of the CVD provide more details on how to implement unique use cases.
A discussion of wide area networking is extremely timely because after a long period with little if any fundamental innovation, the WAN is now the focus of considerable innovation. As a result, for the first time in a decade network organizations have an opportunity to make a significant upgrade to their WAN architecture.
WAN optimization increasingly resembles a mature market with increasing feature standardization. Vendor innovation is focused on supporting new application types and deployment options, with WAN optimization migrating toward more diverse platforms or to a WAN cloud.

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard
