Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 R2 takes the guesswork and integration out of BYOD security and administration, providing one point of control and management for IT organizations.

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.
Today, IT leaders address the PC lifecycle across a continuum from control to transformation. Control is geared to optimization, while transformation focuses on the business impact of technology. Though the two approaches differ, they are not in opposition. They strive for the same goals and face similar challenges. As IT leaders provide their workforce with the tools to carry out the corporate mission, they should develop a PC lifecycle strategy that encompasses the key organizational needs of systems management, end-user productivity, business innovation and data-centric security. Read this Dell whitepaper to learn more about the findings of a recent Forrester Consulting study, “Digital Transformers Innovate, Digital Controllers Optimize”. This paper will help clarify the PC lifecycle continuum, from the basics of control to the advanced levels of transformation, so you will be better equipped to determine the needs of your organization on that spectrum.

Prophix and IMA hosted a webcast, titled “Overcoming Barriers to Implement CPM Methods”, featuring subject matter expert Gary Cokins, the CEO, at Analytics-Based Performance Management. The adoption rate of business analytics and corporate performance management (CPM) methods has been slowed by various barriers. Gary Cokins outlines the causes of this lag, as well as lessons learned about how to overcome obstacles, and obtain buy-in to manage and improve performance. He describes techniques such as strategy maps, balanced scorecards with key performance indicators (KPIs), channel and customer profitability reporting, and driver-based budgeting that can prevent failure when implementing CPM methods.
IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.

• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

Among your primary responsibilities as a board member is providing advice on both business strategy and enterprise risk. A general understanding of risk management is essential when looking at cyber risk specifically. Ultimately, an enterprise should consider adding cybersecurity expertise to its board membership, but all members can benefit from increasing their understanding about how cyber risk affects corporate strategy and the overall enterprise risk profile. To provide effective strategic advice to company leadership on cyber risk, you must ask the right questions, including whether a company does ongoing cyber risk assessment and management, and how.
