Online, mobile, omnichannel, untethered, data mining, automation, and remote
communication are all now buzzwords surrounding the new technologies and resources
financial institutions have to help them re-invent their branch experience. Capabilities are
available today that were not imagined a decade ago. This is an exciting time for those
institutions that can look to the future and enhance their offerings.
While technology is driving change, it can also be a tremendous challenge for financial
institutions as they work to keep pace and even take advantage of the dramatic shift in
customer needs and expectations. Millennials, baby boomers, small businesses – all are
important market segments with very different wants and needs. Driven by technology,
the new demand is for a complete online presence, complemented by more flexibility in
personalized services, and specialized expertise available in every branch.
Suffice it to say, financial institutions of all sizes and in every geography a
Over the past few years, improvements in mobile devices, Wi-Fi, and
cloud computing have made mobile point of sale (POS) solutions
e ective and a ordable for businesses of all sizes.
Tablets have emerged as the most popular platform for mobile POS
solutions, and you may have already heard the buzz about them.
There’s a reason for all the hullaballoo. In addition to integrating
payments and making retail transactions more e cient than using
a traditional electronic cash register (ECR), tablet POS solutions can
provide robust management data.
A tablet POS solution makes sense for many retailers, particularly if
you’re looking to:
• replace an ECR or want to have a mobile POS in place on opening day
• unlock new pro t-making and cost-saving opportunities
• expand your business
• keep pace with ever-changing customer expectations
Figuring out which tablet POS solution is the best for your business
may seem like a huge challenge. But don’t worry. Taking the right
approach, by using too

When the opportunity emerged for one bank to acquire the other, the deal went through as quickly as regulations and compliance requirements would allow. As a result, no integration plans were in place at the time of acquisition. For a long time, the two companies continued to operate separately, albeit under a single name. This was particularly true of the mobile banking experience where two entirely different apps were in use.
Since the two companies delivered complementary services, there was an opportunity to cross-sell to customers who might require the services of both; but only if they could deliver a seamless experience. We were invited to tackle the challenge of creating an integrated banking app experience across both companies.
The risk of cyber attacks and the cost of failure are increasing. Penalties associated with failure are only going to increase. And these challenges are compounded by increasing collaboration, use of cloud-based solutions, and an increasingly mobile workforce.

With the explosion of social networks, mobile devices, and micro sites, marketing executives are challenged to gain a truly integrated view of customer behavior across the range of established and emerging channels.
With widespread use of mobile devices and social media, today's consumers are connected and empowered like never before. This white paper explores the challenges that face retail chief marketing officers (CMOs) and their divisions.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
A growing number of organizations are realizing the benefits of mobile devices, including increased productivity, enhanced efficiency and speedier response times. Yet while the use of mobile devices typically leads to lower costs and additional revenue opportunities, it also brings challenges associated with device and application procurement, data connections, service costs, content management and — most important — security.
In today’s mobile and digital world, IT speed and agility are essential – which is why organizations are turning to converged infrastructure solutions to get the flexibility they need to transform their business.

Enabling the mobile workforce to be productive is the ultimate goal of any mobile business initiative. While the idea that mobile devices like the iPad, Galaxy Tab and today’s leading smartphones can change how users work in the enterprise is well established, the real challenge is how to enable a mobile workforce to have device access to all the different content they need to do their job without having to circumvent security and content governance objective or require users to learn a mix of consumer oriented software tools and work in different user interfaces in order to be productive. Viewing, editing, annotating and sharing content must be available from the same application.

Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.
The challenge is that companies vary hugely in scale, scope and direction. Many are doing things not even imagined two decades ago, yet all of them rely on the ability to connect, manage and distribute large stores of data. The next wave of innovation relies on the ability to do this dynamically.
The rise of mobile applications, the shift from on-premises to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and the reliance on third-party services has increased the complexity application delivery. Online Operations and Site Reliability teams in firms of all types are now responsible for many parts of the application delivery chain. When things go wrong, no matter where, they’re expected to react quickly to minimize the impact on their customers. The challenge for application providers is that users may often experience service degradation when the application stack seems to be working perfectly fine, making troubleshooting extremely difficult.

This whitepaper explains how exploding mobile threats challenge mobile device management (MDM) vendors, carriers, service providers, and app stores to ensure the safety of apps. Consumers and customers will hold these companies responsible for providing adequate security, and employees will expect enterprise IT departments to protect them from malicious mobile apps like they have come to expect for PC malware. The report describes how a cloud-based app reputation service protects against the risks of mobile applications in the wild:
• Collects millions of applications from a variety of sources
• Stores mobile app data in the world’s largest cloud-based threat database
• Analyzes and scores apps on a range from malicious (e.g., known malware such as Trojans or root kits) to trustworth
