Digital innovation has changed everything: the money is everywhere,
so every business is a potential target for fraud.
Banks and financial institutions used to be the primary targets of fraud. Why banks? To quote the
notorious American bank robber Willie Sutton, “because that’s where the money is.” While banks
remain firmly in the crosshairs of fraudsters, the avalanche of digital business innovation has
Since the money is everywhere, every business is a potential target for fraud. The same technology
that helps us find airfare deals, sweet concert seats, or the best prices on the hottest Jordan shoes–
that is, bots–can now be used by criminals.
Fraudsters employ automated, faceless bots that scour business apps looking for any opportunity to

Current methods for accessing complex, distributed information delay decisions and, even worse, provide incomplete insight. This paper details the impact of Unified Information Access (UIA) in improving the agility of information-driven business processes by bridging information silos to unite content and data in one index to power solutions and applications that offer more complete insight.
Aligning IT and business perspectives requires the ability to create links between configuration information in the CMDB and the business service as experienced by the user. Service Dependency Mapping (SDM) products automate the process of creating and maintaining these links.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.
