When it comes to making decisions that positively impact care delivery and business outcomes, great leaders will tell you it’s better to rely on data than on myth. Through healthcare analytics, the clinical and financial leadership at Regions Hospital in Saint Paul, Minnesota used data to do just that—and set a strong course for reliable, trusted decision-making that helps address their most pressing issues. Using strong IT systems, accompanied by a cooperative and inquisitive organizational culture that brings together clinical and financial decision makers together to address pressing issues, put Regions on the path to create powerful healthcare analytics that fuel organizational change.
Today in healthcare the communication infrastructure is the backbone in IT. New reimbursement models are amplifying the need for care coordination, and communication between multiple departments, constituencies, and workflows is required. High-performing healthcare systems are adopting enterprise communication solutions to eliminate silos of information, improve patient care during critical situations, and make the most of their IT budget.
For a non-profit enterprise seeking to design effective investment portfolios for its asset pools, understanding the role of each of those asset pools is a crucial first step.
The organization's goals and exposures can impact all parts of its portfolio construction process, from initial broad decisions on risk tolerance to more targeted decisions on asset-class exposures and investment vehicle preferences.

The moats and castle approach is an antiquated, yet a common way, of protecting the enterprise network. This paper describes a new way to protect the enterprise which hides applications from the Internet, outside of the firewall, with zero open ports and a minimal attack surface.
IT complexity has rapidly grown with more applications, users, and infrastructure needed to service the enterprise. Traditional remote access models weren’t built for business models of today and are unable to keep up with the pace of change. Read this paper to understand how remote access can be redefined to remove the complexity, meet end-user expectation and mitigate network security risks.
"Traditional remote access technologies—like VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—provide access in much the same way they did 20 years ago. However, new and growing business realities—like a growing mobile and distributed workforce—are forcing enterprises to take a different approach to address the complexity and security challenges that traditional access technologies present.

"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio
