La tecnologia IaaS, un tempo vista con scetticismo da molti responsabili IT, viene oggi adottata da molte aziende, che trasferiscono sul cloud i workload e accantonano l’architettura locale che prima ritenevano indispensabile.
Nonostante i vantaggi in termini di prestazioni, flessibilità e opportunità di innovazione sperimentati dagli utenti che già hanno adottato questa tecnologia, alcune aziende ritardano la migrazione per paura del cambiamento.

Développement et production sont sur de mauvaises voies. Le développement se concentre sur des innovations plus rapides et sur la mise en oeuvre de nouveautés. La production a quant à elle pour objectif la stabilité, le contrôle et la prévisibilité. Souvent, ces deux équipes ne dépendent pas des mêmes personnes dans l’organisation. Elles semblent évoluer sur deux voies différentes. Peu importe la vitesse à laquelle elles avancent, elles ne se rencontrent jamais. Seules, les équipes de développement et de production IT auront souvent du mal à communiquer, encore plus à collaborer, et resteront engluées dans des processus manuels. Résultat : des employés qui ne travaillent pas bien ensemble, des logiciels qui ne fonctionnent pas de manière fiable et des clients qui envisagent d’aller voir la concurrence. Vous voilà peut-être coincé dans ce que nous appelons un « noeud de dysfonctionnement.
Several years ago, a transformation in IT began to take place; a transformation from an IT-centric view of technology to a business-centric view of technology that Forrester refers to as business technology (BT). This transformation has a profound impact on the role of the CIO. The CIO must now view himself or herself as a business enabler. He or she must focus on continuously aligning with business objectives, improving delivery capability to support business processes that bring new products and services to market more quickly, fostering innovation, and reducing costs through improved performance. In this custom Technology Adoption Profile (TAP), the data confirms this trend.

The US healthcare industry has historically lagged behind others in the maturity of security capabilities, only recently catching up on data security and privacy in response to HIPAA. But there is a wide range of other mounting risks unique to healthcare that S&R pros in healthcare can’t ignore — greater regulatory pressure, increasing targeted attacks, the frightening uncertainty of IoT security, and global economic pressures. This report outlines the most important security capabilities for security leaders in this sector to implement in the face of these challenges.
With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.
This is arguably the most unsettling time in history to be a CIO. The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace with advances in social media, mobility and big data. The proliferation of advanced robotics is just around the corner and the Internet of Things is connecting even the most mundane objects to the internet—and probably the corporate network. Back in the 1990s, most computer hackers were interested in gaining access to networks purely for kudos among their peers. Today hackers have monetized their skills and make their living from finding vulnerabilities in IT networks.

In 2014, there will be more than 2 billion smartphones global. Mobile is becoming not on the new digital hub but also the bridge to the physical world. That's why mobile will affect more than just your digital operations- it will transform your entire business. 2014 will be the year that companies increase investments to transform their business with mobile as a focal point. This fifth annual mobile trends report highlights new mobile trends that we expect to see this year as well as some over hyped topics that we believe will fail to provide real business value in the short term.
En 2014, il y aura plus de 2 milliards de smartphones dans le monde. Le mobile est non seulement le nouveau hub digital, mais il fait aussi le lien avec le monde physique.

Dieser jährliche Bericht zu den Trends im Mobilbereich untersucht neue mobile Trends, die wir für dieses Jahr erwarten, sowie einige überbewertete Themen, dieunserer Meinung nach kurzfristig keinen echten Geschäftswert bieten werden.
