The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation,
conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties
in remote locations. However, outsourcing can take many
forms, and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) does
not always mean the displacing of the finance back office.
Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement
and support the back office, streamlining processes while
providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and
analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on
strategy, analysis and decision-making.
Enterprises can extend their services with scale and speed that would have been unthinkable
just a few years ago. They can focus on their core strengths while leveraging resources from
other ecosystem participants, creating richer, more valuable digital experiences than most
companies have the resources to produce alone and spreading their businesses to new audiences
and markets. The speed of change and the range of opportunities are dizzying—which is why
it’s so easy for businesses to hit hurdles or chart the wrong course.

For most companies, the Human Resources department has a long history of guarding sensitive employee data. Rows of beige file cabinets line a back closet where only those with a key and knowledge of the filing system have access to the personal information of countless employees. The greatest risk to this data has always been fire or water damage, but that’s quickly changing with the emergence of online data storage.
While the legal requirements to provide employees with paid or unpaid leave for family and medical issues become more complex, the leave-management tools and services available to employers continue to expand.
Employers with the budget to do so are outsourcing—often to a single vendor—leave-management tasks for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state and local leave ordinances, according to recently released findings from a survey of 1,203 employers conducted in 2017. Employers with the resources to manage leave internally are increasingly using technology to assist them.
Threat actors increasingly look toward illicit cryptomining as an easy source of income.
Cryptomining is the production of virtual currency, also known as cryptocurrency, such
as Bitcoin and Monero. It comes at the expense of system performance and power
consumption. Moreover, threat actors are infiltrating networks to use their victims’
computer resources to do this work for them. In this white paper, you will learn how to
defend your organization from illicit cryptomining with the Cisco® security portfolio.

Downtime Is Not an Option: High Availability Next Generation Firewall
Access to applications, data, and resources on the Internet is mission-critical for every organization. Downtime is unacceptable. Security for that network must also be highly available and not cause performance degradation of the network.
The increased workload of security devices as they analyze traffic and defend users from malicious attacks strains computing resources. The next generation of security solutions must build in high availability that can scale as the business changes. Download this whitepaper to find out how high availability is at the core of the Forcepoint NGFW (Next Generation Firewall).
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.
Find out how companies have deployed remote access SSL VPNs to increase remote user satisfaction, improve accessibility to corporate resources, support business continuity planning, and reduce overall implementation and ongoing management costs. The white paper also covers how cloud-based SSL VPN services address high availability requirements, support unforeseen spikes in activity and optimize network performance. Lastly, learn how a single SSL VPN platform can support all your mobile access, telecommuting and partner extranet requirements to improve your ROI.

Data is a truly inexhaustible resource for an organization. It creates endless possibilities to make data do more. As a technology partner of hundreds of organizations around the world, Infosys helps clients navigate the journey from their current state to the next.
Facilitating clients’ transition into data-native enterprises is a crucial part. To understand how companies are using data analytics today and their expectations in a world of endless possibilities with data, we recently commissioned an independent survey of 1,062 senior executives from organizations with annual revenues exceeding US$ 1 billion, in the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The respondents were from business and technology roles, who were decision makers, program managers and external consultants; represented 12 industries, grouped into seven industry clusters, such as, consumer goods, retail and logistics, energy and utilities, financial services and insurance, healthcare and life sciences, h
Finding the right IT service provider is not as simple as it may seem. Choosing a service provider based exclusively on low price may be good for your bottom line, but may fall short on delivering the right level of IT expertise and resource scalability for long-term advantage.
Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
Because business success is tightly fused with technology, IT costs are rising, and this trend is expected to continue. As a result, businesses are demanding that IT be more than a static resource. IT is expected to deliver business results with a measurable contribution to the organization's bottom line.
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.

There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
