The world economy has become service and project-driven. Global businesses have realized the new playing field is not based solely on competing with products and price, but rather through client-driven projects that require unique consulting knowledge, skills and experience. This project-driven service economy depends on accurately capturing knowledge-worker productivity—how much time, skill, materials and intellectual property are required to produce favorable client outcomes? New cloud-based Services Resource Planning (SRP) applications have emerged to manage the entire project lifecycle from requirements to quoting, time and expense capture and billing. SRP provides the systems basis for initiation, planning, resource management, execution, close and control of projects and services.

With the recent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space, many organizations are interested in learning more about the migration to IPv6. This document examines the major benefits of IPv6 and the rate of adoption of IPv6 around the world. It also provides an overview of some of the major challenges organizations face with IPv6, and how Fortinet supports IPv6 today.
As many network administrators initiate their IPv6 migration projects, other IT professionals do not know where to begin. This white paper first describes the importance of securing the network against IPv6 threats well before the introduction of any IPv6 traffic. It then outlines the steps involved to begin securing a transitional IPv4/IPv6 network.
In May 2010, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the financial impact and potential return on investment (ROI) that an organization might realize from implementing CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution. To determine the impact, Forrester examined the specific costs, benefits, flexibility, and risk elements that a CA customer, Catholic Health East (CHE), experienced over the past three years using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution. From interviews conducted by Forrester, it was determined that CHE's use of CA's Oblicore Guarantee solution allowed for a significant redeployment of labor necessary to compile and distribute service-level management reports to its system office customers and enabled a similar labor cost avoidance associated with compiling and distributing reports to its hospitals or Regional Health Corporations (RHCs). Based on our interviews, Forrester projects a three-year, risk-adjusted total net present value (NPV) of $173,420, representing the net costs and benefits attributed to using the CA Oblicore Guarantee solution versus CHE's previous manual processes used in service management reporting. (See details below in Costs, Benefits, Flexibility, and Risks sections). In addition, the risk-adjusted ROI was a favorable 45%, and the payback period was within 20 months.

In this White Paper, IDC discusses the reasons for ongoing data growth within organizations and examines a number of technology approaches that can help IT departments manage the costs associated with provisioning storage more effectively. Understanding what drives the growth of data, the challenges inherent with existing practices for provisioning new storage and the economic impact of the low utilization rates for storage found in most enterprises will help businesses in assessing the right approach to their next storage acquisition, in light of the change in economic dynamics and the looming threat of a storage management meltdown. IT departments have several primary concerns about storage infrastructure:
* Ensuring application and data availability
* Limiting downtime, both scheduled and unscheduled
* Ensuring data security and integrity
* Reducing the initial acquisition and ongoing costs associated with storage
* Managing storage resources and their utilization levels
* Addressing the complexities within the storage environment
All of these issues are of great concern to IT departments and, if not handled correctly, can lead to challenges for the business. Since many IT departments are concerned with these issues, we can begin to understand the many challenges faced when it is time to provision new storage capacity, be it for a new application or to cater for the growth in data from existing applications or users.

If you work in a small- to medium-sized enterprise (SME), you know how challenging securing your technology assets can be. The boss (who is often the owner) wants the same level of security that Fortune 500 companies enjoy. What the boss doesn’t understand is how much that costs, in terms of software, hardware and, most importantly, the specialized talent required to operate it. Sticker shock is a reality when SMEs talk security, and often, the dedicated staff to support security products is forgotten.
Attackers understand the challenges SMEs face, too. And although there are bigger paydays out there, they typically have better security, meaning the SME is an easy target. Some SMEs erroneously believe that they have nothing to lose, no intellectual property (IP) to protect. But that isn’t true. Look carefully at the data on your network. If you wouldn’t publicly post this data on pastebin or email it to a competitor, then it clearly has value—and you should be protecting it. Consider
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 world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

In some kinds of more traditional businesses the
finance department tends to swallow as much data
as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured
and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s
revenue vs target in the last quarter”.
These are undoubtedly essential for proper business
management, But periodic reports also mean it
can be too late for the business to respond. It’s
like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror.
Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a
sudden bend in the road!
Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved
business environment of today requires businesses
to have proactive, indicative business metrics.
Combined with more traditional metrics, these
mean businesses have invaluable and complete
insight in order to evaluate performance.
Proactive, indicative business metrics are found
across most successful businesses–and especially
amongst C-suite employees. These people know
that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven

Early in my career, I worked on the shop floor at Home Depot. As part of my management training, I rotated into an assistant store manager position, and the team I found myself leading was full of highly experienced master-tradespeople. I quickly realised that my lovely college degree was of zero use when customers wanted to know how to fix their leaky taps or install new light fixtures. No amount of friendliness could overcome the fact that I simply couldn’t answer those questions. Yet, our experienced associates were helping customers find exactly what they needed.
