Only a handful of industries have been transformed by the digital age the way banking has. Internet and mobile banking, digital wallets, and a raft of new and innovative products have redefined “the bank” from a local, brick-and-mortar branch to an anytime-anywhere process. The new banking environment has opened opportunities for national, regional, and community banks alike, which are no longer constrained to serve only customers located in the areas where they maintain a physical branch presence. But it has also brought challenges associated with collecting, processing, analyzing, storing, and protecting vast amounts of new data, from multiple locations and sources.

If you function like most IT organizations, you've spent the past few years relying on mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and client management tools to get the most out of your enterprise endpoints while limiting the onset of threats you may encounter.
In peeling back the onion, you'll find little difference between these conventional tools and strategies in comparison to those that Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have employed since the dawn of the modern computing era. Their use has simply become more:
Time consuming, with IT trudging through mountains of endpoint data;
Inefficient, with limited resources and limitless issues to sort through for opportunities and threats; and
Costly, with point solution investments required to address gaps in OS support across available tools.

Security threats are very real, and the stakes are higher than ever. Each day, tens of thousands of malware variants are created, with new classes of threats continually added and improved upon. Savvy attackers use polymorphic programs to alter malware into new form factors after each delivery. And all of this is exacerbated by the proliferation of mobile devices, cloud computing and social media—in fact, the intersection of these technologies provides fertile new ground for threats and malware.
Enterprises are adopting Microsoft Office 365 in greater numbers. As part of deploying Office 365, IT teams are re-evaluating how they secure mobile access to email and apps as the data moves into the cloud. This guide provides a comparison between the free solutions offered by Microsoft and Okta for mobility management of Office 365 apps and data. Read this eGuide to learn more about the differences between Microsoft MDM and Okta Mobility Management for Office 365.
The security perimeter once familiar to the enterprise has become incredibly fragmented. Data and applications reside everywhere: on the network, endpoints and in the cloud. The cloud, in particular, is seeing huge growth with enterprises adopting these environments at a rapid pace. According to Gartner, 55 percent of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025.1 Combined with an increasingly mobile and global workforce, and more importantly, increasingly distributed SaaS cloud environments, organizations are now faced with securing a multitude of applications, users, devices and networks – all hosting sensitive data that is critical to business growth, reputation and customer trust.

The importance of IT has never been greater. Companies are transforming their business models with digital technologies, leveraging emerging mobile and social platforms, and increasingly operating online. All of these developments are powered by IT innovation, while IT departments face challenges meeting the increasing demands of the business. Complexity in the data center has soared, causing IT administrative costs to skyrocket.

Mobile is undoubtedly changing both our personal and professional lives. Customer service organizations should decide on a strategy to bridge the gap between mobile behavior and customer service. This requires a strategic review of value drivers, combined with a tactical search for relevant use cases.
Don’t fall in the “we need an app for everything” trap — some users need big screens, some users don’t. Some need a rich experience, others just need basic functions. Your strategy must take all of these dynamics into consideration.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
To move your business from its current state to the connected enterprise, you have to define a common API to your database and other systems, while providing the infrastructure to support the new model. The new systems must incorporate the security safeguards while ensuring the infrastructure can support the
new growing, but variable, load. With the rapid adoption of mobile and web-based services across the industry, the REST architecture has emerged as the de facto standard for API integration across systems. This white paper addresses the concepts of REST, creating REST APIs for your databases and integrating with other systems:
• What is REST?
• Why use REST for database access?
• Building REST infrastructure for database access
• The REST enabled database
• Integrating REST with other services
• Criteria for selecting REST services platform

Customers expect to have the same experience with a store no matter where they are shopping – in a brick and mortar location, on the store’s website via laptop or on the store’s app via mobile device. Combining online and offline data helps retailers stay informed about their customers so they can drive customer loyalty and increase revenue.
If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business
intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help
business analysts and nontechnical users visualize data. It
creates the best possible visual based on the data that is
selected. The visualizations make it easy to see patterns and
trends and identify opportunities for further analysis.
