Stratecast regularly examines the monetization processes and functions within the communications service provider (CSP) sector. This week’s SPIE looks at how other industries are now benefiting from monetization concepts first developed within telecom; and how taking advantage of the details within the monetization process itself enables innovation in surprising new ways. This report also assesses how one company—goTransverse—is enabling a variety of customers across various industries to change how they do business; applying monetization principles in somewhat unconventional ways.

Financial Considerations to Building a Cloud Model
How To “Sell” the Cloud
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said
that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to
first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are
so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the
field can argue against them.

This white paper, the first in a sequence, addresses the question, "who, specifically, are those right groups and right people?" on several different levels. It also highlights underlying principles that, properly applied, lead to solid answers to the "who" questions for a wide variety of scenarios.
Moving to C++ presents opportunities for higher programmer productivity. The requirements of embedded systems, however, demand that the adoption of C++ be carefully measured for the performance impact of run-time costs present in C++, but not in C. This talk suggests strategies for developers who are starting their acquaintance with C++.

In earlier years, most companies didn't know the first thing about search engine marketing, and as a result, almost all of them outsourced their Internet marketing campaigns to dedicated firms. However, as search engine marketing has grown in prominence in the business community -- and more information about search engine marketing has become available online -- more people have become knowledgeable about the basic SEM principles and strategies, and more companies are attempting to run their own Internet marketing campaigns in-house.
Great thinkers like Aristotle, Descartes and Elon Musk have said that, in order to solve really hard problems, you have to get back to first principles. First principles in a designated problem space are so fundamental as to be self-evident; so true that no expert in the field can argue against them. They are atomic. Experts use them like building blocks to derive everything else that is worth knowing in the problem domain. In this paper, I propose that the first principle for all network defenders is to prevent high-risk material impact to the organization.
In our first cyber security checklist, we provided a security overview and best practices to help organizations prevent an initial compromise from occurring. In this guide, we will help you understand practical steps you can take to mitigate techniques attackers use once they have penetrated your defenses. Once attackers have access to a machine, they can evade detection by using fileless techniques and legitimate system administration tools to do their dirty work. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help mitigate the impact of an attacker. Lastly, we will hep you understand how partnering with a company like Alert Logic can provide better defenses to stop attackers in their tracks.
This checklist helps to explain how to:
• How to manage and limit PowerShell access
• Securing and utilizing Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
• Ways to apply application controls
• Following the principle of least privilege and applying access controls
• What to monitor for to help uncover
