When Q4 rolls around, people start hanging
Christmas lights, planning family gettogethers,
stocking up on booze for said
family get-togethers — and buying gifts.

16 gifts during the season, wintertime is salestime.
We’ve compiled the 10 things brands and retailers can do to boost revenue during the holiday
season — and keep customers coming back for more.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now a new wave of Anything-as-a-Service (XaaS) continue to drive adoption of what we collectively call cloud services.

Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems
are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.
Using the IP Multimedia System (IMS) architecture, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) can offer session-based services. Any Internet Protocol/Session Internet Protocol (IP/SIP) device can establish a session with the control servers’ Call Session Control Function (CSCF) and then establish connections with other IP/ SIP devices to deliver voice, video, and data sessions between the two end-clients.
