L'identité est une composante essentielle de la croissance numérique. Les entreprises et les organisations ne peuvent tirer pleinement parti des technologies mobiles, du cloud ou de l'Internet des objets (IdO, ou IoT en anglais) sans une stratégie d'identités évolutive et reproductible. Sans une telle stratégie, elles ne disposent d'aucun moyen d'identifier leurs clients et d'interagir avec eux de quelque manière que ce soit, par le biais d'un ordinateur portable, d'un mobile, d'une tablette, d'une voiture connectée, d'un objet connecté à porter (« wearable »), d'un appareil domotique ou de la toute dernière innovation en termes de connectivité. Ce guide a été conçu pour vous aider à comprendre les éléments fondamentaux de l'identité client et la manière dont elle peut vous aider à communiquer avec vos clients.

42% of consumers make the internet their first stop for healthcare information, ranking the web second to actual physicians. Following this trend, healthcare marketers have increased their investment in a variety of digital advertising channels such as native, video, mobile, content and more in order to better educate and inspire healthcare consumers.
But whatever digital channels healthcare marketers choose, the environment matters. Consumers make snap judgments about brands based on adjacency. Over two-thirds of your audience will feel less favorably towards a brand if its placed next to untrustworthy, offensive, or low-quality content. Fortunately for brands the flip side is also true, which is why it’s imperative that you guarantee ad placements that share digital space with premium content. With Oath’s reputation as a trusted publisher, healthcare brands can experience peace of mind knowing their consumers will make positive associations that will increase brand loyalty.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property without impacting an employee’s ability to do their job.
The key is to gain visibility into user interactions with data and applications. Once this is achieved, you can apply a level of control based on the specific user’s risk and the sensitivity or value of the data. An organization’s data protection program must consider the human point — the intersection of users, data and networks. Enterprises must remain vigilant of data as it moves across hybrid environments and highlight the users who create, touch and move data who may pose the greatest risk to an organization.

Financial services organisations face increasing pressure to comply with rapidly evolving regulatory requirements for data integrity and security. In addition, valuable stored data continues to grow at exponential rates.
Meanwhile, customers expect around-the-clock access to their account information from their computers and mobile devices. In fact, many banks have developed customised mobile applications that enable 24/7/365 account transactions, including deposits and transfers of funds.
The rise of the application programming interface (API) represents a business opportunity and a technical challenge. For business leaders, APIs present the opportunity to open new revenue streams and maximize customer value. But enterprise architects are the ones charged with creating the APIs that make backend systems available for reuse in new Web and mobile apps.
It is vital that all stakeholders understand that the business goals and technical challenges of an API program are intimately related. Program managers must take responsibility for clearly communicating the key business goals of a proposed API to the architects who will actually build the interface.
This eBook outlines best practices for designing results-focused APIs that will form the cornerstone of your API program’s success.
