Do you know your mobile customers - really? Without genuine insight, you might be tempted, for example, to offer mobile users the regular website that works well with your Internet customers. But most smart and feature phones cannot support the complex, high-bandwidth Flash and Ajax applications at the heart of your site. Further, your feature and content rich website can pose numerous usability, navigation, or even screen real estate issues on hand-held devices.
There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption.
This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

Remember getting your first box of LEGOS as a kid? How fun it was putting the pieces together, collaborating with your friends to create something new? Now, as an IT professional, assembling and maintaining a Lego-like collaboration infrastructure isn’t what you signed up for. Piecing together disparate systems of record for email, web meetings and other applications is about as painful as stepping on a pile of Legos. Download the e-book to learn how implementing a collaboration system connects systems of record the easy way.
Storage costs are exploding. The culprits, according to this white paper: new Web-based applications that demand more I/O throughput and higher performance than ever. So how can you handle this onslaught while keeping your cost per GB (and cost per user) reasonable?
Have you ever found yourself in this untenable position? Your web team and email program owners are targeting the same customers, with different offers, or worse, competing offers.
Siloed systems and teams limit marketers’ ability to make sound assessments about performance and spending. Marketers around the world spend over one trillion USD each year. Yet, most of them still manage their marketing programs with a hodgepodge of spreadsheets and disconnected applications. Unnecessary costs, delays and poor collaboration plague marketers. Under increasing pressure to connect with customers while doing more with less, marketers who strive to optimize marketing performance through a single integrated software platform can make the best use of people, programs and resources. Today, you need a return on every dollar spent and a platform that aligns technology, people and processes to help create effective, efficient marketing programs that support customers for life.

If you work on a network operations team, you know how increasingly hard it is to understand and ensure application performance for your end users. You need visibility into areas where issues may occur – end-user devices, network and infrastructure – in order to identify and diagnose problems quickly
and minimize downtime.
But it hasn’t been easy to gain this level of visibility across the WAN or hybrid network without deploying additional probes, packet capture devices or remote site technicians. Blind spots are everywhere making it difficult to focus on managing and monitoring the applications that matter the most to your business. And when nearly 50% of a network’s traffic is web-based and it all looks the same to the network, identifying your important applications and staying ahead of their performance problem is more difficult than ever. That could mean inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. Who wants that?
When it comes to design patterns, the battle between push and pull has been ongoing since the start. Both models have their place. But the authors of this IBM® Redbooks® Point-of-View article, including IBM WebSphere® VP Jerry Cuomo, argue that in many situations, pushing data to users as it changes can consume far fewer resources than a conventional pull pattern.
