IPM offers unparalleled visibility across the Internet allowing you the ability to optimize infrastructure costs, mitigate risk, and protect your revenue. Unlike APM and NPM which only provide visibility into your applications or internal network respectively, IPM provides a complete end-to-end view of the public Internet so you can:
- Decide where to host content and applications for top performance
- Determine the impact website partners, such as cloud providers and ISPs, have on web responsiveness
- Identify optimal cloud hosts, NSPs, CDNs, and SaaS providers for Internet traffic, by region
- Monitor and measure service provider performance and SLA compliance

Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
Cloud-first, mobile-first organizations are seeing huge benefits from taking a more distributed approach to IT. Business units are given more freedom to evaluate and select SaaS applications that will enable efficiency and growth. Users are given more freedom to use the devices that make them the most productive.
When this trend started, most IT organizations were able to implement some basic, manual processes to administer and govern IT in this best-of-breed distributed environment. However, as the number of touchpoints increases, IT needs to automate to keep pace.
This paper goes into more detail on the top 5 reasons to automate identity lifecycle and identity administration and build a solid foundation for future cloud-first, mobile-first IT.

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
If anyone remained skeptical about the cloud’s utility— and staying power—as a delivery mechanism for everything from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and more, a quick look at recent statistics would surely change their mind. Indeed, with the cloud software market reaching US$48.8 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow to US$112.8 billion by 2019, it’s clear that cloud computing is not just the way of the future, it’s also the way of the present.

Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.

The shift to SaaS is gaining momentum and there are clear business benefits that can be derived. To optimise success, transformation strategies need to encompass all elements of people, processes, technology and organisational design. Adopting SaaS technologies drives significant change to the way organisations operate – from business processes to support model design and company culture. The implications of cloud adoption and technical challenges such as integrations, data migration and configuration must be fully understood and addressed from the outset.
The popularity of integration platform as a service (iPaaS) started with business users looking to gain control and share data among their proliferating SaaS apps?without needing IT intervention.
iPaaS was then adopted by IT to support business users to ensure security measures were being maintained and to provide more of a self-service environment. Now, iPaaS has evolved from a niche solution to taking a much bigger role:

Questions to ask when evaluating your current solution
The use of SaaS applications within an organization is the new normal. In fact, there's a good chance that just your marketing department alone is using over 10 SaaS products.
According to Gartner, the 2015 worldwide market for SaaS software application sales was $33.4 billion, with projections to double to $67.2 billion by 2019. Integration needs are changing, with SaaS applications, as well as mobile traffic, social networks, IoT, suppliers, partners, and customer channels all new integration points that will need to be captured in your business processes.

Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
