Three IT transformations can help IT get its own house in order to become the proactive partner of the business. By applying these concepts, IT departments at major enterprises are changing the way they engage with their business peers.
Centralized and accurate network security management is more than a trend—it is quickly establishing itself as the only means of network survival. Old-school point solutions, where each solution served a single purpose at a particular point in the network, are quickly becoming unwieldy, if not impossible, to manage. Larger enterprises may have hundreds of point products throughout their network, and managing them effectively, efficiently, and securely can only be done through a centralized network security management solution. Look for eight key features in your network security management solution to ensure that your network not only survives but thrives.
Today’s IT organizations simply cannot afford to continue to manage the end user environment with an out-of-date PC-centric approach to systems management. The cloud, mobility and multiplatform environments render that approach ineffective. It’s time to take another look at virtual application and desktop virtualization technologies. Download this whitepaper to look at VMware Horizon, the most complete solution for delivering, managing and protecting Windows desktops, applications and online services across devices, locations, media and connections, making it ideal for systems management transformation.

“We don’t have a BYOD programme.”
This statement, referencing mobile device usage in the workplace, is a refrain often heard in European organisations that are
tasked with securing the privacy of highly confidential data and personally identifiable information, and managing employee
authorisation and access to that data. However, businesses often believe that they aren’t actually subject to cyber-threats
from mobile devices because, simply, they don’t currently allow personal mobile devices to access their networks. Ultimately,
this posture puts data at risk because every company has a BYOD policy whether they like it or not.
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.
Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions.
For many retailers, a completely "cashless society" is nowhere in sight. Cash management remains one of the most important aspects of managing a retail operation, particularly at quick service restaurants (QSRs) and convenience stores, where transactions are smaller and cash is a preferred method of payment. This white paper, Boost Profitability by Automating Cash, sponsored by Fiserv and Fast Casual, details the steps to manage cash properly and boost profit for your business.
Uncover the top reasons and flexible options to automate your cash management.

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change
and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread
regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity
threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to
remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing
and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but
increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations
anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a
recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by
consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even
more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing
to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72%
would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive
information was taken hostage by ransomware.1
Not only does the
As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
The financial services industry has unique challenges that often prevent it from achieving its strategic goals. The keys to solving these issues are hidden in machine data—the largest category of big data—which is both untapped and full of potential.

One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

Location3 client Mountain Mike’s Pizza and their franchisees face significant competitive challenges when advertising on Google, which ultimately requires the need to be both incredibly efficient with campaign setup and incredibly precise when managing bids and local budgets. A quick Google keyword search for “pizza near me” in Mountain Mike’s home state of California yields over 58,000,000 results (“pizza delivery” yields 56,000,000) and often features a predictable set of ad results from industry giants like Domino’s and Pizza Hut, among others.
Suffice it to say that buying “pizza”-related terms in AdWords can get incredibly expensive, incredibly quickly, if a local franchisee’s budgets and bids are not managed with precision. When you combine that fact with limited location-level advertising budgets, our team atLocation3 was presented with a significant challenge in helping Mountain Mike’s Pizza generate increases in customer pizza orders while simultaneously ensuring that ad spen
Organizations that create and deliver software — whether for their own IT operations, for the packaged applications market, or as the core of their final product, as in the systems space — must grapple not only with today’s competitive landscape, but also with increased complexity in their processes and supply chains. Many factors serve to complicate software delivery, but differentiation lies at the heart of managing this complexity. This smartpaper explores how effective quality management creates opportunities to deliver key business benefits, such as improved market share, higher customer satisfaction, and increased brand equity.
Today’s software and systems engineers are being challenged to balance speed of delivery with improving quality, reducing cost and minimizing risk. Managing changes to code and configurations through development, staging, user acceptance and production environments can be challenging. Having more “production-like” environments that can be controlled and serviced by the development team can add value, eliminate waste and speed delivery. Creating such environments can eliminate risk because more errors can be found well ahead of production deployment when they are less costly to fix.
