Cloud migration has exploded in popularity since General Electric’s (GE’s) flashy keynote at Amazon Web Service’s (AWS’s) re:Invent in September 2015. GE claims to be migrating all workloads not containing secret information. Enterprises are revisiting public cloud and exploring whether existing or systems-of-record applications have a place in that world. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals on this path should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to outsourcing and migration plans, opting instead for an app-by-app assessment.
Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations.
Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn:
>The latest trends in credential-based attacks
>Why every sensitive cloud application needs multi-factor authentication
>How to enforce network-level multi-factor authentication without touching your apps using Palo Alto Networks and Okta
Cloud adoption promises the benefit of increased flexibility and significant cost savings. Hence, migrating business-critical applications to the cloud is becoming a growing priority for companies of all sizes. A recent survey of more than 250,000 information security professionals revealed that more than 77 percent of organizations have already adopted cloud services and 10 percent of those companies using cloud services describe themselves as heavy users.

The management of financial data in an organization is of paramount importance. Reporting, evaluating ROI, making adjustments across the business, and increasing revenue depend on good, accessible financial data that can be updated and integrated across systems and software.
For these reasons, many organizations have turned to master data management (MDM) software in the effort to better store, access, search, retrieve, and analyze their financial data. These MDM solutions are able to collect data within a single unified, fully integrated, user-friendly platform. However, in order to be most effective, MDM applications must also have capabilities in data relationship management (DRM). DRM software is able to describe and enforce the relationships between data, no matter where it's located within an organization, to provide a holistic and consistent solution.

“One of the most popular MDM solution is Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management. Oracle DRM is used to resolve the challenges across the people, processes, and tools that go into the tasks of data management. Although Oracle DRM is a powerful software, it nevertheless presents challenges for organizations seeking to integrate it with other Oracle applications such as PeopleSoft Financials – DRM is unable to automatically push updates made within its system to PeopleSoft. As a result, changes in DRM to cost centers, project centers, trees, and hierarchies must be manually updated in PeopleSoft Financials – a tedious process that can take hours every day. The good news is that these challenges can be easily addressed with the support of partners such as Datavail.

When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
As organizations develop next-generation applications for the digital era, many are using cognitive computing ushered in by IBM Watson® technology. Cognitive applications can learn and react to customer preferences, and then use that information to support capabilities such as confidence-weighted outcomes with data transparency, systematic learning and natural language processing.
Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business,
the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most
successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured,
rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations,
stored and put to work to enable business strategies. Data integration
tools play a critical role in extracting data from a variety of sources and
making it available for enterprise applications, business intelligence
(BI), machine learning (ML) and other purposes. Many organization
seek to enhance the value of data for line-of-business managers by
enabling self-service access. This is increasingly important as large
volumes of unstructured data from Internet-of-Things (IOT) devices
are presenting organizations with opportunities for game-changing
insights from big data analytics. A new survey of 369 IT professionals,
from managers to directors and VPs of IT, by BizTechInsights on
behalf of IBM reveals the challe

Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?

Vice Président et analyste principal chez Forrester, Paul Hamerman s'intéresse tout particulièrement aux applications de gestion des ressources humaines et financières, ainsi qu'aux tendances et orientations de l'ensemble du marché des applications d'entreprise. Paul répond à 5 questions clés que doivent nécessairement se poser les entreprises au moment de rechercher des solutions de planification RH et financière adaptées au monde économique moderne.
Une nouvelle réalité économique:
La fonction ressources humaines connaît actuellement une mutation profonde et nécessaire. La mondialisation, l'instabilité économique, l'évolution des technologies et la concurrence pour le recrutement des talents constituent de nouveaux challenges pour les dirigeants et les directions des ressources humaines (DRH).
A l'évidence, les anciennes pratiques ne sont plus adaptées à cette nouvelle économie mondialisée. Les RH doivent se réinventer. C'est une occasion unique pour les DRH de ré-imaginer le rôle de la fonction RH et de créer une valeur ajoutée durable pour leurs entreprises, leurs collaborateurs et leurs communautés.
Dans un contexte économique tourmenté, l'adoption des technologies Cloud, notamment les applications SaaS (Software as a Service), est une tendance de fond. Cette démarche permet de réduire les coûts, d'accélérer la mutation des entreprises et de créer plus de valeur.
Le Cloud Computing fait le buzz. Et c’est justifié. En réalité, la plupart des entreprises ont déjà intégré certains services Cloud dans leur infrastructure informatique. Les logiciels sur site deviennent obsolètes et les solutions hybrides sont limitées. Les applications Cloud, quant à elles, offrent de nouvelles manières pour déployer des solutions innovantes. Ces solutions sont aussi pratiques que simples à utiliser et à gérer. Aujourd’hui, le Cloud devient le socle de l’infrastructure sur lequel les entreprises innovantes s'appuient pour développer leurs activités.
Actuellement, le lieu de travail et l'employé connaissent de
profonds changements. Les entreprises ont compris que
pour relever ces challenges et rester compétitives, elles
doivent changer la façon dont elles gèrent leur ressource la
plus précieuse : leurs employés.
Mais leur tâche est rendue particulièrement difficile
par les outils obsolètes et rigides qui, du moins jusqu'à
maintenant, étaient utilisés pour gérer la main d'œuvre :
les systèmes sur support papier et formulaire, les outils de
bureautique (tableurs et documents Word), ainsi que les
applications logicielles ERP à grande échelle. Les services
RH sont particulièrement surchargés. Ils passent en effet
beaucoup trop de temps sur les tâches administratives et de
conformité au détriment du recrutement et de la fidélisation

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how t
