Malicious hackers are becoming more sophisticated, often involving organized crime and even foreign governments. As mobile devices and applications continue to permeate businesses and society as a whole, the magnitude of the security threats grows exponentially. As a result, IT experts are predicting that 2015 will be the worst year on record as it pertains to IT security breaches.
Being asked to "do more with less" has become standing operating procedure in business and government. Today, it is a generally accepted fact that finding innovative ways to reduce costs and extend the life of capital investments is an expectation. An area to explore in achieving these objectives is service/support/maintenance for servers, storage, routers and switches. While OEM maintenance is the default position for new equipment, there are significant aspects to consider for service beyond the expiration of initial agreements. This document provides an overview of critical aspects to take into account concerning OEM service and the value and benefits of third-party, multi-vendor service and support.

It’s an exciting yet daunting time to be a security professional. Security threats are becoming more aggressive and voracious. Governments and industry bodies are getting more prescriptive around compliance. Combined with exponentially more complex IT environments, security management is increasingly challenging. Moreover, new “Big Data” technologies purport bringing advanced analytic techniques like predictive analysis and advanced statistical techniques close to the security professional.
The economic crisis is presenting a unique opportunity for state and local governments across the nation. As tight budgets drive government agencies to identify innovative solutions to increase IT efficiencies, aging systems and networks can drive consolidation and allow agencies to realize big cost savings. IT consolidation - the process of removing certain common technology functions from a number of separate operating divisions and combining them to form a common shared services entity that acts as a services provider back to the original division - is a high priority on CIOs' to-do list and examples are continuing to emerge across the country.
It’s no secret that a potent combination of new digital technologies and rising constituent expectations is transforming government. The impact is being felt at all levels, from the largest state agencies and departments to the smallest municipalities.

Cloud-based systems are the future for cities and counties looking to reduce budgets and use staff wisely. The cloud allows governments to end constant upgrades to legacy systems, improve security, and invest in operations—not capital expenses. Join the Governing Institute for an overview of the benefits of a migration to the cloud and gain valuable insights from the City of Rochester’s successful transition.
As traditional network perimeters surrounding data centers dissolve, agencies face enormous difficulties fending off attacks using a patchwork of traditional security tools to protect classified or personally identifiable information (PII). Time and again, traditional security practices have proven porous and/or unsustainable.

While we tend to think about mobility largely as a consumer phenomenon, it is also changing how the workforce carries
out business. With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service
organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile tablets and smartphones as productivity tools for
agents, representatives and personnel, and developing enterprise apps for these devices.
As security threats increase and government regulations require more control over users and data, it is important for organizations to evolve their security measures.
By aligning governance related policies and rules with all identity management processes, organizations can achieve continuous, sustainable compliance, thereby reducing the need for after the fact fixes and expensive, error prone manual remediation.

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.
Solutions that make it easy to keep track of security and software updates will give you an edge like no other. In many cases, hackers target specific holes in outdated software. Rather than dealing with the headache of continually updating each computer in your network, use tools that track and perform system updates automatically. You’ll always be ahead of the curve.
All of these elements of growing connectivity have the potential to significantly increase productivity, streamline operations and enhance service levels to citizens and stakeholders. But these benefits are only one side of the story. The added complexity of the new eGovernment environment also creates many new challenges, as government agencies search for effective ways to secure and control access to the rapidly growing number and variety of gateways to their ecosystems.
Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) face many challenges as they adapt to today’s new style of doing business. Shifting government regulations, threats to network security, requirements for 24x7 application availability and the demands for new methods to work with customers, suppliers and employees require ongoing investments in IT. These issues impact SMBs even harder because of budget constraints and limited IT resources. SMB’s who learn how to efficiently utilize IT assets and increase IT productivity will be successful.

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need. Gartner evaluated 12 vendors including Pegasystems against nine critical capabilities in four use cases.
