Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie
streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run
its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management.
Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different

In Philip K. Dick's 1956 "The Minority Report," murder ceased to occur due to the work of the "Pre-Crime Division," that anticipated and prevented killings before they happened. Today, we are only beginning to see the impact of predictive analytics upon cybersecurity – especially for insider threat detection and prevention. Based on user interaction with data, CISOs and their teams emerge as the IT equivalent of a Pre-Crime Division, empowered to intervene before a violation is ever committed. Watch this webcast where we examine the technologies which make predictive analytics valuable, along with ethically minded guidance to strike the balance between vigilance and privacy.

Professional buyers increasingly expect a hassle-free, fully digital experience with visibility into pricing. Electrical products in particular are a major growth area for Amazon Business and other digital entrants, some of whom undercut the market with bottom-barrel prices. It can be scary out there, but only if you don’t have a plan. This whitepaper provides a playbook for:
• Reimagining how you tackle pricing challenges
• Dynamically responding to cost changes
• Embracing the right technology
• Going the extra mile with services that Amazon can’t match
If you’re making the leap to eCommerce or bolstering an existing online presence to meet customer expectations, pricing cannot be an afterthought. In digital channels, pricing rigor - including effectively maintaining market-aligned customer-specific and system prices and setting up relevant price profiles - becomes even more important as it is more transparent to customers. Give your buyers what they want without sacrificing the marg
We all know that employee engagement is important. Employees that are aligned with their goals, aware of their performance gaps, and motivated to improve, perform better. It’s stating the obvious. The big question is how to get there, and whether technology can help us do this at scale. This is where most digital motivation initiatives hit a wall. A new breed of next generation performance and feedback systems are attempting to do just that: creating and maintaining a continuous personalized conversation between employees and managers with regards to performance, development and goals.
In online marketing, personalizing messages and promotional activities has been possible for some time. It is called “Marketing Automation”. Hubspot, one of the pioneers in this field, defines it thus: “software that exists with the goal of automating marketing actions. Many marketing departments have to automate repetitive tasks such as emails, social media, and other website actions. The technology of
Much has been written about Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and its potential to herald a new era of open banking where banks no longer have a monopoly on payment services. Instead they will be forced to provide full access to customer accounts to third parties looking to provide financial services of their own, on top of banks’ existing data and infrastructure.
All of this could prove to be true, just not on January 13th 2018, the deadline for national governments to transpose PSD2 into law. This is because there is still so much to be decided and clarified. The European Banking Authority’s longawaited regulatory technical standards (RTS) on strong customer authentication (SCA) were issued in March 2017 but missing some of the finer details, such as the methods to remotely access customer data and account information and the measures around the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) and screen-scraping.
This Whitepaper reveals how location services deployed on-premises or in a hybrid cloud can address the needs of enterprises in multiple sectors, helping to improve customer experiences and protect valuable assets.
Hybrid cloud security is a hot topic, especially with the massive growth of public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure™ and Google Cloud. With the emergence of the hybrid cloud, where workloads are deployed across physical, virtual, and cloud, security professionals are constantly being challenged to evolve their security practices to adapt to this new architecture.
Trend Micro Hybrid Cloud Security, powered by XGen™, takes a blended approach. It combines multiple cross-generational threat defense techniques for protecting hybrid environments. When one technique isn’t effective against a given threat, another will step in to eliminate the threat.
Since the early days of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for this category, there have been successive waves of innovation. Back in 2002, integrated firewalls captured the market’s (and Gartner’s) attention. Over the years, we’ve seen technologies, such as full disk encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), behavioral detection, application control, and more recently, machine learning, as effective new ways to protect endpoints, detect threats and give security teams peace of mind. Trend Micro has consistently been part of these innovation waves.
It’s clear that the market is excited about Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR). There are two drivers for this, and we are committed to delivering effective solutions in both areas.

Activity #1: Determine if there is a cost justification
Activity #2: Conduct a cloud readiness study to better understand the business and technical factors
Activity #3: Conduct a pre- and post-migration study to understand how the app will behave in the cloud
Global adoption of the cloud is accelerating at a dizzying rate each year with businesses of all sizes realizing the cost-saving, flexibility, and scalability benefits of migrating and running applications in the cloud. In a 2016 survey*, F5 found that 67 percent of the respondents identified themselves as “Cloud First,” and three cloud models—private, public, and SaaS—dominated the top five IT strategic trends.
As pressure to move applications to cloud and hybrid environments intensifies, IT teams must grapple with sometimes significant migration challenges. Though each migration is different, there are several common considerations to keep in mind to help you on your own cloud journey. This guide provides a blueprint to help you think through many of the long-term impacts of your migration options and establish a strong foundation for your cloud migration strategy. The end result should be a migration strategy that leaves you in a position to support your technology as your business
The demand for (and benefits of) web-based interfaces combined with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has exposed inefficiencies inherent in the browser, the network and its protocols, and the data center. These inefficiencies create performance problems for applications that continue to be magnified by emerging technologies like Web 2.0 and SOA. This White Paper details how F5's approach to Application Delivery Networking eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in browsers, in the network, and in the data.
