Knowledge workers today have a rich portfolio of team collaboration tools to help them get their jobs done, starting with email and encompassing texting, file sharing, online chat and message boards, social media and video conferencing. Yet collaboration across these tools can be a frustrating experience, due to the complexity of the technology and lack of integration. The good news: the application of emerging technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) enables more people to connect when and how they need to. And that makes for more productive teams.
The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
The most successful businesses are greater than the sum of their parts. When individuals work together well, they fill in each other's blind spots and build on each other's great ideas. These conversations ultimately help teams be more productive, reduce time-to-market and come up with more innovative ideas. But if your teams are spread across different offices, or working from home, can you create the same collaborative magic?
Web-based collaboration tools claim to break down the collaboration barriers that distance can build. Everyone agrees they can reduce the time and cost of travel. And yes, these tools can stream your colleagues' voices, facial expressions, and slide decks into your meeting room, so you can get a clearer picture of verbal and behavioral signals. But if you're researching collaboration platforms, you'll hear skepticism, too. Naysayers declare that:
People won’t participate because they’re afraid of digital change.

Is your organization ready to take the plunge into in-house video production? The benefits can be substantial, but making the move requires some preparation. The IT infrastructure you use for enterprise applications might not be able to meet the rigorous requirements of video production. And you might not want video production teams to use resources from your existing infrastructure, since doing so could affect the performance of other applications. Whether you’re just getting started with in-house video or ramping up production, consider these five best practices for building an IT environment optimized for video work. The right approach to IT is essential for developing efficient collaborative workflows and maximizing the value of your video content.

In the past, the production of professional quality corporate videos was delegated to outside agencies. Corporate business units hired marketing firms and video production houses because those outside agencies were the only ones with both the required expertise and the expensive equipment needed to generate high-quality results.
Quantum teamed up with the Communications Media Management Association (CMMA) to survey their members—media production managers from leading enterprises—to learn more about the benefits and challenges of creating video in-house.
Download the eBook, “The Changing Landscape of Corporate Video Production” to get the following questions answered and more:
• Will in-house creative teams continue to ramp up in production?
• What video formats are they currently producing and delivering?
• How are they archiving their content?
• What challenges are in-house teams facing as they generate more content?
Today, that is changing. As the cost of video production technology drops, more corporations are recognizing the value of bringing production in-house. According to a recent report by Vidyard, 85% of businesses surveyed now have internal staff and resources producing videos in-house.

From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital.
These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don't mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” walks a line that information security officers are uncomfortable with, and it's having an obvious impact on technical support teams. The good news is, there are opportunities for all support organizations, regardless of their stance on shadow IT.

The DevOps model drives digital transformation and the rapid delivery of new software products and services. However, this process largely takes place outside the purview of information security (InfoSec), often without their involvement. As a result, security teams struggle to keep pace. This whitepaper explores the intersection of DevOps and InfoSec, offering three reasons why security organizations will benefit by combining these two practices.

In today’s application economy, everyone is in the software business. Auto makers are putting Wi-Fi hotspots in their cars. Watches are trading gears for motherboards. Even
soda fountains have evolved from dumb machines into instrumented devices with touch-screen user interfaces.
This digital transformation is changing the way applications are developed, tested, moved through environments and released into production—and it’s putting new demands on IT teams with which they’re struggling to keep up.
At a high level, this is because the application delivery systems and processes at many enterprises were put in place when IT only had to push out an annual or semi-annual release. But as market pressures and executive mandates have forced teams to deliver innovations faster and more frequently, a new set of development, testing, automation and customer challenges have appeared—acting as obstacles that stand between you and your digital transformation goals.
Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that's changed. New 'cloud based' services, such as those offered by Qualys, are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What's more they're even more affordable. With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security. Leading cloud-based security services deliver a professional level of security assurance in a form that fits the circumstances and pockets of small businesses.
Pricing needs to support a brand’s overall marketing platform. But is that enough to assure consistency of message throughout the organization? Given the far-reaching influence a price position has on a brand, and how various departments need to be aligned to support that position, an argument can be made for treating pricing as a core competency within the organization.
What does this mean in real terms? Pricing is a day-to-day concern for numerous departments throughout the organization. While marketing might use pricing tactics to grow market share, sales teams chase volume goals, and product development teams lose sleep over the price image each product projects.
If you’re a sales manager, you’re probably feeling stuck in the middle. On one hand, you have a huge employee engagement movement going on with HR departments focusing on developing leaders and recognizing achievements with substantial budgets. On the other side, marketing departments are using technology and creativity (and also large budgets) to connect with and educate customers about their products, solutions and brands.
The trend is to challenge every dollar spent on sales compensation to maximize ROI. HR departments are treating salespeople like all other employees. And customers are going online to avoid anyone with sales in their title.
Based on our research and applications we see in our customers’ leading sales initiatives, if you’re a sales manager, you are trying to maximize results out of your sales team by increasing your teams engagement to meet company goals. Download this white paper to see which eight trends you should consider as you strategize for the year.
Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.
