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
As water is increasingly being recognized as a high-value commodity, aging assets present a major threat to organizations that treat and deliver it.

Red Hat CTO for global service providers, Ian Hood, and TelecomTV talk about multi edge compute capacity and the fundamental need to have a common platform to deliver future services. ‘If you are not feeling some pain, you are not driving fast enough’, says Red Hat CTO, Global Service Provider, Ian Hood. The race to 5G is definitely on, and the use cases are clear. You can talk about multi edge compute capacity and other technical issues, but the fundamental thing is to have a common platform to deliver future services. We need to get to the point where IoT Everywhere, virtualized video and all the applications that come from new 5G services are delivered seamlessly. Even blockchain has a clear future within the telco environment where the world of eSIMs, secure roaming charges and identity management can alls be based on blockchain technology.
All-flash storage is on a strong growth trajectory, but the industry is not swooning naively over the blazing fast I/O speeds. Most IT managers are talking a mature, step-by-step approach to all-flash adoption. Falling per-gigabyte prices are making the technology more commonplace. Solid state drives are no longer just for specialized, high-performing tasks. Before they leap, however, storage professionals want to understand the full business picture as they formulate a winning strategy for putting all-flash storage to use for more workloads.
This paper offers insights for business success with all-flash storage based on IT Central Station reviews. Real users weigh in on what it takes to get the most out of the technology. It covers such aspects of flash storage as the need for simplicity and the importance of flexibility. The paper also looks at how to build a business case for all-flash and think through the implications of issues such as integration with existing infrastructure.

2017 and 2018 were not easy years to be a CIO or CISO, and 2019 isn’t showing any signs of being easier. With so many career-ending-level data breaches in 2017 (e.g., Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, to name a few) and with the stronger regulatory requirements worldwide, CIOs/CISOs have a corporate responsibility to rethink their approach to data security. Regulatory compliance aside, companies have a responsibility to their customers and shareholders to protect data, and minimize its exposure not only to external attackers but also to employees. The most common method of data breach in 2017 was a phishing email sent to a company’s internal employees (See 2017 Data Breach Investigation Report), This makes employees unwillingly complicit in the data breach. Over 80% of successful cyberattacks have a critical human element that enabled them. The average employee who opens the innocent-looking attachment or link, is unintentionally jeopardizing a company’s data. While there is no 100% protection, th

The mobile device is part and parcel of daily life. It’s fundamentally changed the way consumers behave, and this influence has spread to the enterprise sector as well. For instance, patron-owned mobile devices have largely helped pave the way for the widespread emergence of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies. Ten years ago, the idea of a company employee logging into the enterprise system while they’re on an airplane over the Atlantic would seem far-fetched, but today such behavior is relatively commonplace. Mobility is changing how we shop, work and live our daily lives.

In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
