Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk
Managing and protecting privileged credentials is
essential to reducing risk and addressing compliance
requirements. Organizations need to evaluate
privileged password management solutions for the
depth of controls, scope of coverage and degree of
cloud alignment they provide. CA Privileged Access
Manager delivers against all three of these
dimensions, providing a next-generation solution
for privileged credential management that drives
IT risk reduction, improves operational efficiency
and protects an organization’s investment by
supporting traditional, virtualized and hybrid-cloud
When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component. Misalignment – or too much focus on one element –can dramatically detract from performance levels and the ability to measure results. An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.
For sales teams to be successful in the age of the customer, they need tools that help them close more deals, faster. Some CRM tools are underused because they’re not geared to helping reps sell in the modern era. This may be because they’re complicated to use; because they’re isolated from the apps your reps use every day; or because they don’t give reps the information they need.
Today, sales automation is not (just) about managing accounts, contacts, and activities. It’s about gaining insight that provides a competitive edge, having access to predictive information, being able to collaborate in real time, creating quotes in front of the customer, updating forecasts. All at any time, from any place, using mobile devices—all helping to drive sales and pipeline.
Today’s plants are faced with managing two major challenges: the increasing speed
of business and integrating emerging technologies. Leveraging IIoT as a basis for plant modernization could result in big payoffs: download the white paper to learn more.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless
tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least
on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have
begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a
connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots
are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while
some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.
Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a
sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

In the modern digital age, traditional
barriers to entry and time to market have
fallen. Agile businesses can turn an idea into
an app, host it in the cloud, and quickly deliver
it to millions of customers on their chosen
devices and platforms. In comparison,
many larger enterprises miss new business
opportunities because they’re mired in
managing complex, legacy infrastructure,
inefficient cross-functional workflow and
approval processes, and lengthy audit
and compliance requirements.
It’s no secret financial services organizations own and operate legacy solutions. Some of these
core processes are front and center, meeting customer needs; others are in the middle, supporting
account handling operations; and still many more are in the back-office, handling data and managing
analytics. The challenge for financial leaders is to ensure these traditional systems don’t prevent
the delivery of great digital experiences now and into the future.

In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.
