To support business continuity, many
organizations eagerly avoid putting all their
eggs in one basket.
Understanding the critical role of last-mile
connectivity and always-available Internet
access, savvy firms utilize redundant wide
area network (WAN) and Internet connections
from multiple service providers to ensure
network availability in addition to load
balancing. Despite the good intentions,
their Internet connectivity risks may still be
in a single basket. That is because internet
service providers (ISPs) and competitive local
exchange carriers (CLECs) may operate using
leased network infrastructure from the same
incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC).

Enterprise chief information security officers (CISOs) are seeking ways to leverage existing security
investments to bridge the divide between largely siloed security systems. The focus is on reducing
the number of consoles needed to manage the security infrastructure. Network security vendors have
a significant role to play in bridging the communication gap between these systems. The creation of a
unified defense architecture enables threat data exchange between existing security systems. It helps
automate the process of raising an organization's security posture when a security infrastructure
component detects a threat.
The following questions were posed by Fortinet to Robert Ayoub, program director in IDC's Security
Products program, on behalf of Fortinet's customers.
Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks.
To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data.
This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance
by 75 percent.

Today, 75% of Twitter traffic and 65% of Salesforce.com traffic comes through APIs. But APIs are not just for the social Web. According to ProgrammableWeb.com, the number of open APIs being offered publicly over the Internet now exceeds 2000—up from just 32 in 2005. Opening APIs up to outside developers enables many technology start-ups to become platforms, by fostering developer communities tied to their core data or application resources. This translates into new reach (think Twitter’s rapid growth), revenue (think Salesforce.com’s AppExchange) or end user retention (think Facebook).
Business executives and managers at
business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care
about time, money, competitive advantage,
customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much
attention to the vital IT infrastructure that
supports transactions and collaboration with
trading partners—though that B2B backbone
directly affects performance and profitability. In
fact, just 26 percent of business managers view
B2B integration as a competitive differentiator,
according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne,
a research consultancy.
As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize
manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file
transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on
complex, brittle and antiquated systems to
exchange critical data impacts time to market,
cost-efficiency and satisfaction across
suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of
B2B integration in recent years has moved
forward in fits and starts, often undermined by
competing priorities and misalignment between
business and IT managers.

Lead scoring is an objective ranking of one sales lead against another. This not only helps align the right follow-up to the corresponding inquiry, it also helps marketing and sales professionals identify where each prospect is in the buying process.
The process of defining lead scores improves alignment and collaboration between marketing and sales teams. After all, by jointly establishing an objective definition of a quality lead, sales and marketing can exchange better feedback on the quality of leads being passed to sales. Plus, lead scoring helps ensure that the best leads are followed up on immediately by prioritizing leads according to revenue potential and buyer readiness.
But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or

Almost every task one performs at work includes the exchange of information in one form or another and much of that is exchanged via email and its attachments. Yet too many enterprises view e-mail as a mature technology that simply accomplishes a rather mundane but necessary task, taking e-mail for granted. They rarely seek to leverage it beyond its most fundamental function. However, the messaging services that form the basis of e-mail are far more valuable than the e-mail itself, and can be used innovative ways to save time and money in our every day tasks.
