As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.

Aerospace and Defense companies delivering complex products in competitive markets must overcome many challenges to manage requirements throughout the product lifecycle. Among the most difficult challenges are integrating complex systems engineering processes, promoting collaboration among multiple engineering disciplines and enabling the sharing of intellectual property within globally dispersed teams.
Companies seeking a way to efficiently manage product requirements can leverage a comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) solution to:
• Effectively reuse intellectual property to reduce time to market
• Increase product innovation
• Improve overall traceability of requirements throughout the product lifecycle
This paper will highlight the criteria needed for a comprehensive requirements management solution that incorporates PLM to offer customers a scalable, enterprise-grade solution.
A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
Cyberbreaches aren’t just in the news—they are the news. Yet headlines rarely mention the No. 1 source of those breaches: weak or stolen passwords. Whether they involve malware, hacking, phishing, or social engineering, the vast majority of breaches begin with account compromise and credential theft, followed by dormant lateral network movement and data exfiltration. In fact, weak or stolen passwords account for a staggering 81% of breaches, according to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report.
Not surprisingly, a new Okta-sponsored IDG survey finds that identity access management (IAM) is a top priority for nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT and security leaders. Yet the same survey uncovers widespread concern that their current IAM implementations are falling short. Just one worrisome example: Fewer than one-third (30%) of respondents report a good or better ability to detect a compromise of credentials.
The following report explores the gap between respondents’ aspiratio
Recruiting great engineering talent is hard. The recruiting process for developers can feel like an impossible task because evaluating technical talent continues to evolve. The typical flow can be broken down into three basic steps: source, screen, and interview. Only recruiters truly understand the real challenges in finding qualified candidates but the pain doesn’t stop there. Learn more on tech recruiting by downloading this ebook by Glider

While many enterprise architecture (EA) programs may be less than effective or threatened by extinction, the EA discipline is still an important set of skills and processes that improve IT decision-making and CIO effectiveness. Yet, after decades of architecting systems, the advent of several EA frameworks, and the many definitions available for the term EA, we still strive to understand what EA is, what it does, and what it looks like when it is successful.
The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.

Among the countless changes in Windows 10 Microsoft has provided IT organizations more visibility into auditable actions on Windows 10 machines and the resulting events in the Security Log. Understanding these enhancements is important because we need every edge we can get to detect endpoint intrusions. Threat actors use a sophisticated mix of phishing, social engineering, and malware to attempt to compromise any user within an organization. A seemingly benign order request sent to a salesperson or a benefits summary to someone in HR can contain attachments infected with malware. Once such payloads are in, the goal is to determine how to leverage current users and other accounts on the compromised machine to access valuable and sensitive data, as well as how to spread out within the organization and repeat the process.
Interpol reports social engineering as the “broad term that refers to the scams used by criminals to trick, deceive and manipulate their victims into giving out confidential information and funds.”
Scammers use sophisticated psychological manipulation techniques to build a level of trust with their victim, having them divulge confidential information or authenticate the fraudulent activity as genuine. They will typically claim to be from the bank or well known and trusted consumer brands.
Hospitals and other healthcare organizations must contend with a daunting set of challenges when deploying mobile technology. That’s why it’s important to develop a carefully planned mobility strategy. To be successful, your strategy will need strong senior level leadership, commitment, funding and resources.
