IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?

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.

Customer service is the cornerstone of a great customer experience. However, in today’s digital consumer age, organizations no longer decide how customer-centric their companies are, the customers do. According to the “The Forrester Wave™: Customer Service Solutions For Enterprise, Q4 2015” report, customer service technology investments are one of the top five most focused on investments that companies made in 2015. Why? Because good customer service boosts long-term loyalty. This report identifies the 11 most significant customer service solutions with Pegasystems ranking as a leader.
Digital security has never taken on greater urgency. Today we live in a fundamentally connected ecosystem where we increasingly work, play, and indeed live most of our lives online. Whether we are enterprise users or endpoint consumers, our digital experiences are increasingly delivered to us on our connected devices - wherever we are, whenever we want them.
For InfoSec professionals, this interconnected ecosystem is wreaking havoc with the idea of "the perimeter." In fact, the perimeter as we know it no longer exits. The attack surface is always shifting and continues to disperse across a wider area. At the same time, attacks continue to grow in size and volume, and are increasingly targeted.
No longer can you secure the perimeter and trust that nothing will get in or out. What you need to deploy and manage is being redefined right before your eyes, with or without you. You need to take security to the edge.

Key technology trends and user preference shifts are changing the way businesses communicate and collaborate today. Enterprise solutions must be simpler to deploy, more intuitive to use, and must enable today’s mobile users the ability to collaborate effectively wherever they are. At the same time they must deliver a secure and seamless communications experience. Smart companies must catch on or be left behind.
Complexity, globalization and digitalization are just some of the elements at play in the risk landscape—and data is becoming a core part of understanding and navigating risk.
How do modern finance leaders view, navigate and manage enterprise risk with data? Dun & Bradstreet surveyed global finance leaders across industries and business types. Here are the top trends that emerged from the study:
1. The Enterprise Risk & Strategy Disconnect—Finance leaders are using data and managing risk programs, but over 65% of finance leaders say there’s missing link between risk and strategy.
2. The Risks of the Use and Misuse of Data—Up to 50% of the data used to manage modern risk is disconnected. Only 15% of leaders are confident about the quality of their data.
3. Risky Relationships—Only 20% of finance leaders say the data they use to manage risk is fully integrated and shared.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2
The use of SSL encryption for all enterprise Internet traffic is growing steadily. Applications that make use of SSL – such as SharePoint, Exchange, WebEx, Salesforce.com and Google Apps – are commonplace. Even email applications like Gmail, Yahoo, and Zimbra are being used in workplace environments as hosted email or BYOD apps.
It’s clear that organizations now need complete visibility into the SSL traffic coming across the WAN. They need the ability to preserve complete network and web histories from encrypted network and web traffic for compliance, regulatory and logging requirements. Blue Coat has solutions today to address the SSL dilemma.

In today’s markets, customer identities and the personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise. Managing these digital identities — from first registration and login to the later stages of the customer relationship — and extracting business value from the associated data are complex tasks, commonly referred to as customer identity and access management (CIAM).
When implementing a system to collect, manage, and utilize digital identity and customer data, companies have two basic choices: in-house development or buying a dedicated solution from a vendor specialized in CIAM (i.e., build vs. buy).
Read this white paper for an in-depth analysis of CIAM implementation options, including:
? Must-haves for a successful, enterprise-grade CIAM system
? Pros and cons of implementation options, ranging from in-house software development to commercial off-the-shelf solutions
