Multi-Cloud, hybrid strategies add complexity
Nearly 60% of businesses say they're moving toward hybrid IT enviornments that integrate on-premises systems and public cloud resources and enable workloads to be pleaced according to performance, security and dependency requirements. Identifying the best execution venue is a key cloud hurdle.
In 2017, Europe produced more Of its electricity from solar, wind and biomass resources than from coal.
Today's market is more volatile, with greater variability in energy sources due in large part to the desire to reduce environmental damage.

This paper examines the five most critical variables that investors, developers, and others must recognise in the due diligence process before investing in a new power generation project in Europe.

In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are
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.

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity.
But those approaches are easier talked about than executed. As agencies embark on legacy modernization, it becomes imperative to open up the existing technology so that new innovations can be delivered as needed in a secure way.
In this guide, produced in partnership with Govloop, we will discuss

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.
Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of reuse first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.
In this whitepaper, you will learn:
What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation
How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration
How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project
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.

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.
