The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
As most companies now realize, analytics is increasingly more of an integral part of their day-to-day business operations. In a recent survey by a global research firm, 80% of CIOs stated that transition from backward-looking, passive analysis must shift to forward-looking predictive analytics. The challenge is that many analytic solutions are aligned to a specific platform, tied to inflexible programming models and requiring vast data movement. In this webcast, Forrester and experts from IBM will highlight how technology like Apache Spark on z/OS allows businesses to extract deep customer insight without the cost, latency and security risks of data movement throughout the enterprise.

To succeed today, organizations need to take advantage of information technology in every area of their business. Talent acquisition is no exception. Robust, reliable technology can help recruiters more effectively engage with candidates.
Financial institutions need to consider a broad array of key business case components, beyond fraud loss reduction and fraud-management operating costs, when examining the business ramifications of various fraud-prevention technology approaches.
Nowadays, organizations need top-notch technologies to attract top talent, support their recruiters, and empower their organizations to grow. Thankfully, data analytics, open talent acquisition suites, talent communities, mobile optimization, and more are readily available and can enhance experiences for both candidates and recruiters while providing insight on HR for business leaders. But refreshing talent acquisition isn't just about technology; it's also about realigning its definition to the demands and expectations of the twenty-first century.

Just as Amazon Web Services (AWS) has transformed IT infrastructure to something that can be delivered on demand, scalably, quickly, and cost-effectively, Amazon Redshift is doing the same for data warehousing and big data analytics. Redshift offers a massively parallel columnar data store that can be spun up in just a few minutes to deal with billions of rows of data at a cost of just a few cents an hour. It’s designed for speed and ease of use — but to realize all of its potential benefits, organizations still have to configure Redshift for the demands of their particular applications.
Whether you’ve been using Redshift for a while, have just implemented it, or are still evaluating it as one of many cloud-based data warehouse and business analytics technology options, your organization needs to understand how to configure it to ensure it delivers the right balance of performance, cost, and scalability for your particular usage scenarios.

Cloud computing has changed the way businesses and people think about using technology to serve their needs. Too many, cloud computing is nothing but hype and overblown as the new direction for Information Technology. But to many more, cloud computing represents the future of how every business should plan, operate and execute applications, systems and processes. Goldman Sachs forecasts spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018 compared with 5 percent growth for overall enterprise IT. Moreover, Forrester recently revised its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20 percent. Regardless, it is important to know what cloud computing is.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies—
specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and
manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency.
However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.
While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as
it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the
adoption of new tools and technology.
This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to
using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic
user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable
