This 10-point checklist outlines best practices for designing a security architecture that protects cloud data at the endpoint. Enterprise computing architectures have changed fundamentally in the last ten years, as employees consume an ever-growing collection of business cloud services through mobile apps. The traditional security approach of network perimeter and locked-down endpoints is not suitable for this app-to-cloud model of modern work.

In the PC era, employees operated from within a well defined enterprise IT perimeter and passwords were sufficient to establish user trust. However, in today’s mobile-cloud environment, the enterprise perimeter has dissolved and business information is available to users on a variety of endpoints, apps, services, networks, locations. In this dynamic access environment, organizations need a different approach to security that is able to:
• Establish user trust using multiple factor authentication
• Correlate user trust with other factors such as endpoint, app, network, and more
• Apply adaptive, risk-based policies that match the user’s environment

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
IT teams today are under pressure to build on-premises environments that mimic the agility and flexibility of public cloud services.

To better understand how companies are finding the unique, hybrid cloud architectures that best meet their needs, we interviewed executives at companies that had reduced or changed their use of managed or cloud IaaS or that chose to avoid the public cloud in the first place.
These companies include retail, social media, healthcare, financial services, and public sector companies. Some of these companies were born in the cloud while others transitioned from traditional IT infrastructures. Company sizes ranged from 300 employees to more than 300,000.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
Dans cette ère de disruption numérique incessante, les entreprises doivent améliorer leur agilité pour être prêtes à saisir les opportunités. Pour certains observateurs, les technologies du cloud semblaient être la solution idéale, capables d'apporter des réponses en matière d'agilité, d'évolutivité et de coût. Mais après avoir adopté ces technologies, les entreprises ont souvent constaté que les caractéristiques de performances, de sécurité et de conformité du cloud ne répondaient pas pleinement à leurs besoins. En outre, une idée reçue tenace laissait à penser que le cloud public était moins coûteux que le cloud privé, alors que nous savons maintenant que ce n'est pas toujours le cas. Les entreprises les plus avisées ont réalisé depuis longtemps que la plus grande agilité est proposée par les solutions d'informatique hybride, qui associent des services hors site et sur site.
Im heutigen Zeitalter bahnbrechender digitaler Neuerungen müssen Unternehmen agiler handeln, um Geschäftschancen nutzen zu können. Viele haben dabei auf die Cloud Computing-Technologie gesetzt, da sie darauf ausgerichtet ist, die Agilität zu verbessern, die Skalierbarkeit zu steigern und die Kosten zu senken. Bei der Umstellung auf die Cloud mussten viele Unternehmen aber feststellen, dass das damit verbundene Maß an Sicherheit, Compliance und Leistung ihren Anforderungen nicht in vollem Umfang gerecht wird. Bisher war man zudem allgemein der Meinung, dass eine Public Cloud kostengünstiger als eine Private Cloud ist. Heute wissen wir, dass dies nicht in allen Fällen zutrifft. Kluge Unternehmen haben erkannt, dass Hybrid IT, die sowohl externe als auch lokale Services umfasst, mehr Agilität ermöglicht.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support
providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.
These are no longer capitally strained organizations building an application on a one-off basis, with the cloud this is enterprise transition, this is enterprise applications being shifted to the cloud, new applications being developed in the cloud, and this requires a completely new way of building and consuming IT services for the enterprise.
