Computing environments have evolved to enable users to be more productive and IT to be more agile. And yet attackers have evolved their methods too, adopting polymorphic malware to evade detection by preventive controls. Meanwhile, IT organizations continue to practice a piecemeal, reactive process of plugging holes, and it’s putting companies at grave risk.
Given the nature of our dynamic computing environments and the sophistication of advanced persistent threats (APTs), a security breach is inevitable. The rise in the number of breaches over the past two years is evidence that no company is immune. As with the Target and Home Depot breaches, it’s possible that malware is already sitting on your corporate network, surreptitiously exfiltrating data as you read this. The question is: How soon will you catch it?
The report includes the facts - and the anecdotal evidence - from real world ISV executives who face the same challenges as you relating to cost control, scalability within growing customers, enterprise mobilization opportunities, and more.
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.
Digital transformation has arrived, and it’s creating unprecedented opportunities for companies of all sizes to become market leaders through the evolution of business processes and the creation of new products and services. Organizations that master digital transformation will see a dramatic increase in revenues and profitability by converging people, processes and technologies; those that do not will struggle to survive. Evidence of this is clear to see by looking at the churn in the biggest
companies in the world. For example, a Capgemini study found that since 2000, 52% of the Fortune 500 has disappeared through acquisitions or bankruptcies. The study also found that digital organizations control 70% of market share in all industries today. Therefore, making the shift to a digital business must be a top initiative for IT and business leaders.

Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.
Everybody has their favorite apps. But can you name even three mobile websites you like? We can’t. it’s because responsive retrofits to 20-year-old desktop web designs fail to serve us in our mobile moments of need. That’s a shame because even with lousy sites, web traffic around the world will be majority-mobile by 2019. eBusiness pros have a choice: hand your mobile moments over to a bunch of apps you don’t own, or do a radical reset of your mobile web strategy. This report carries the evidence to convince your company to make your mobile website a firstclass citizen.

Is the CIO a bridge builder, the engineer who designs the bridge, or the forecaster of the bridge’s toll revenues? The answer is that the CIO’s role is a combination of all of these functions. Recent evidence shows that CIOs have a need and a desire to transform from fulfilling functional, technology-operations roles into being strategic change agents who foster business growth. To understand what is driving the evolution of the CIO, IDG and Workday teamed up and studied data culled from IDG’s “2016 State of the CIO” research.
Through a collaborative, groundbreaking study with three prominent U.S. business schools, Senn Delaney has discovered that people who operate from a unique set of three core principles consistently perform at the top 10 percent of performance ratings. The joint study and subsequent research and surveys led to creation of our new, evidence-based, practical performance model that can be taught, practiced, reinforced, applied and measured.
Mergers and acquisitions are a fact of life in today's highly competitive global business environment. Unfortunately, up to one third of mergers fail within five years, and as many as 80 percent never live up to their full potential. A great deal of evidence indicates that the ultimate success of mergers and the amount of time it takes to get them on track is determined by how well the cultural aspects of the transition are managed.

HR processes are changing. And, with the global skills crisis, HR Directors are struggling to attract and retain the best talent. Their departments are in flux, and 77% of organisations report a perceived lack of strategic value from HR.* If you’re going to win the war for talent, your organisation will need to make a radical change. It must transform its HR and become a People Company, utilising people data and analytics to make decisions based on real evidence. This will improve the way you interact with current and future employees, providing great workforce experiences. The result will be a more committed and engaged workforce, and increased interest in joining your organisation. From a business perspective too, you’ll benefit through higher levels of productivity, efficiency and improved performance and engagement.
The Internet of Things (IoT) stands to benefit a number of key public sector subverticals, particularly public safety, because it will be leveraged to enhance real-time situational awareness, improve response times and safety, function as a force multiplier, help minimize operational expenditures, and facilitate evidence-based operations and real-time safety decisions.
The following questions were posed by Cisco to Dr. Alison Brooks, research director, on behalf of Cisco's customers.

Adversaries, and cybercriminal organizations in particular,
are building tools and using techniques that are becoming so difficult to detect that organizations are having a hard time knowing that intrusions are taking place. Passive techniques of watching for signs of intrusion are less and less effective. Environments are complicated, and no technology can find 100 percent of malicious activity, so humans have to
“go on the hunt.”
Threat hunting is the proactive technique that’s focused on
the pursuit of attacks and the evidence that attackers leave
behind when they’re conducting reconnaissance, attacking
with malware, or exfiltrating sensitive data. Instead of just hoping that technology flags and alerts you to the suspected activity, you apply human analytical capacity and understanding about environment context to more quickly determine when unauthorized activity occurs. This process allows attacks to be discovered earlier with the goal of stopping them before intruders are able t

Hospitals and health systems are scrutinizing costs and being forced to make tough decisions affecting patients and their own financial status.Health technology acquisition, standardization, and utilization decisions are becoming ever more important as the costs associated with making wrong decisions continue to escalate. With the array of new technologies clamoring for attention, utilizing evidence is the foundation for meaningful decisions.
What is the role of evidence-based medicine in population health management?
With the emergence of value-based reimbursement, more and more health systems have a renewed focus on population health management. See how evidence-based medicine becomes the "sheet music" to an effective population health program.
An analytics revolution is upon us. Knowledge workers are in short supply, the competition for talent has gone global; turnover is rising; and employee engagement is stagnant at best. How can companies attract, retain, and develop employees who can drive business results and have the data to back up these decisions? A recent survey found more than 80% of respondents said that they needed talent-related insights to make business decisions. Yet most enterprises still base talent decisions on gut feeling. Few can offer analytic evidence to support their hunches. Now, finally, analytics are beginning to drive decisions about people.
