Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
IT departments are under constant pressure to do more with less. Now, as well as keeping the lights on, they are expected to deliver projects that create real business value. As more businesses use digital technologies to disrupt their markets, this pressure is intensifying.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is evolving against this background. Initially, it caught CIOs’ attention because it helped them cut costs. Today, IaaS underpins organizations’ agility in the face of disruption and drives innovation-led growth.
New disruptive digital technologies are changing the face of workplace as well as worker expectations. The rapidly evolving 21st-century workforce is becoming increasingly mobile, contract-based, and technology savvy. Corporate real estate, IT, and HR leaders need to improve their work environments to suit these evolving needs, or they risk losing their employees to competition.

Today’s network edge is increasingly taking on a critical role in connecting users to the digital content and web services that they need to reach. This is driving a new approach to load balancing that starts at the edge. Powered by DNS, edge-based global load balancing (GLB) steers user traffic to destination endpoints based on IT-defined policies.
GLB works independently or in concert with site-based, or on premises, load balancing technologies in a “federated” system. This approach applies load balancing and traffic steering policies at each layer from the user edge to the host—whether virtual or physical—where the request is actually served.
Financial institutions seeking to attract new customers and revenue channels are expanding into digital services, real-time payments and global transactions. However, with every new service, criminals are developing innovative ways to infiltrate financial systems, and older technologies that mitigate fraud no longer work as effectively.
So how can financial institutions respond to this growing threat?
Fortunately, more advanced technologies hold great potential for real-time financial crime mitigation. Learn about five current and emerging technologies that could impact money laundering and fraud mitigation, including artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, biometrics, predictive analytics (hybrid model) and APIs.

Evolving citizen and constituent expectations have created the imperative for government to digitally transform. Delivering on these expectations grows more challenging by the year, as the proliferation of modern technologies (e.g. SaaS, mobile, IoT) forces IT teams to rethink how to best deliver projects to their constituents and deliver on their mission.
Microservices have emerged as a means through which government IT teams can increase project delivery speed without compromising on security. This whitepaper discusses the role microservices can play in government, and how API-led connectivity helps agencies to more effectively and securely implement a microservices architecture.
Readers will learn:
How agencies have increased IT agility with reusable microservices
Why government IT teams must move beyond point-to-point integration
How microservices enable secure data sharing within and across agencies
How API-led connectivity supports microservices adoption in government
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
