Consumer-focused technologies that are deployed by employees can provide tremendous value to any business and can provide IT organizations with more functionality than they can afford or are willing to deploy. However, consumer technologies must be appropriately managed in order to satisfy corporate security, compliance and other requirements. This means integrating consumer technologies into the existing IT fabric in order to achieve the greatest possible synergies between consumer-focused and IT-deployed technologies.
IT leaders today are reinventing their infrastructure to support a mobile workforce and a complex array of connected devices.

Assembling quality course content, either through purchasing off-the-shelf compliance courseware or developing training material in-house or in partnership with an external developer, and delivering that material in a consistent manner, can help protect your organization and minimize the damage from compliance transgressions.
The Issue: The Content and Commerce Divide
Commerce and digital marketing teams tell a familiar story. The commerce team launches an online store on a commerce platform. Commerce and IT focus on the platform and evolve it as the online business grows—focusing on basics such as PCI compliance and product information and expand-ing to more complex integrations. Now they want to add content, such as reviews and engaging media, that will inform and guide shoppers.
Meanwhile, the digital marketing team regards the online store as a missed branding and engagement opportunity and tries to jump in and contribute only to find that the system can’t meet their needs. So marketing goes outside to a digital agency, pays for a separate microsite, and takes their creative production needs elsewhere. And thus a classic divide is formed.

Despite the range of functionality offered in Office 365, like any cloud-based offering, it cannot be all things to all customers. There are features missing in Office 365 that will prompt some customers to consider the use of third-party, cloud-based, or on-premise tools to enhance Office 365’s native capabilities. Specifically, these third-party enhancements are focused primarily on the security, archiving, and encryption capabilities built into Office 365. Read now!
While most business is digital, most organizations still rely on paper for the “last foot” of the process: the sign-off. Continued reliance on paper-based signatures is fraught with risks, including impeding productivity, reducing visibility, hampering compliance?and diminishing the customer experience. Electronic signatures (e-signatures), which are easily implemented from the cloud, help speed up the sales process by reducing errors and bottlenecks, while also ensuring greater security and mobility.

As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the importance of a well-architected framework. This framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is well-intended, secure, and compliant, but is not exactly easy to achieve.
Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular-- Security and Cost Optimization--are the most difficult to get right. This is partially because while advanced tooling is required to manage cloud complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying, and operating these tools is costly and burdensome.
Without optimizing your environment for these two pillars, you are preventing your organization from scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place.
AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework, which will walk you through missteps and how to get it right.

If your business is like many other
organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure
and manage cost, while at the same
time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance
framework to allow enterprises to
develop and maintain a fully optimized,
and secure environment. The resulting

organization’s specific business and
compliance needs, as every enterprise
is different. This guide will introduce you

One critical green practice for large companies to implement is universal waste (UW) recycling. We understand the importance of finding a program that meets your facility’s needs. A corporate UW recycling program can minimize recycling costs, help ensure company-wide compliance and participation, and provide the tools needed to measure recycling progress against goals. Recycling with a corporate program can also produce benefits like green marketing opportunities, reduced liability for improper disposal, and provide time-saving relief by working with one company versus several vendors. With Air Cycle, corporate UW recycling is a challenging green practice, made simpler for you.
