HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

The modern, mobile enterprise is expanding faster than ever, across every part of the world and in every industry. Increasingly, organizations are looking for comprehensive security blueprints to help them secure their mobile devices, apps, and data without compromising productivity or the user experience.

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.

The rapid adoption of Office 365 means that work created using the Microsoft product contains a large amount of the business world’s sensitive information. In fact, in most enterprises using Office 365, more than half of that highly valuable information — including business plans, sales data, product designs, M&A details and financial forecasts — is contained within Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Outlook and other Microsoft software. Securing the information created with its products has emerged as a primary concern for CSOs, CIOs, IT departments and other C-level executives.
