Networking involves at least two devices capable of being networked with at least one usually being a computer. The devices can be separated by a few meters (e.g. via Bluetooth) or thousands of kilometers (e.g. via the Internet).

To put it carefully, certain technology decisions at the federal level since 2002 have been questionable. But citing new “Cloud First” policies for implementations in government contact centers, data centers, and federal agencies, cloud initiatives are now showing value by way of cost reductions and broader functionality. Abdo Rabadi of Blue Kite Consultants and Mechele Herres of Interactive Intelligence say even more benefits of the cloud await. Read how the federal government can best achieve them.

Read about the benefits of adopting an Application Lifecycle Management approach to improve software quality, automate testing processes and safeguard mission-critical applications while supporting growth.
Enterprise IT teams face increasing challenges as the amount of valuable data living on endpoints continues to grow. Adding complexity is the mounting list of government regulations to which enterprises must comply. Read how endpoint backup can satisfy data collection and preservation requirements in a more streamlined and cost-effective manner than traditional e-discovery methods.
Many companies still rely on a legacy, platform-specific data backup solution, even though it doesn't provide consistent backup across the enterprise. This outdated approach becomes especially risky when IT faces a data migration initiative. Organizations risk immense data loss and an expensive, intensive disaster recovery undertaking if they launch a data migration effort without first properly securing their data.
A large amount of mission-critical data exists exclusively on laptops and desktops (i.e. "endpoints") making them a primary source of unnecessary (and often unrecognized) data loss risk for today's organizations. Through helping thousands of top brands around the world properly manage and protect the critical corporate data on their endpoints, Code 42 identified the five common stages of "enterprise endpoint backup grief." In which stage is your organization?
A new research survey reveals several important—and potentially alarming—trends on endpoint backup. As more and more users create essential data on their desktops and laptops—and often store at least a copy of that data on those devices—it’s increasingly clear that endpoint backup must be a fundamental part of the IT department’s mandate when it comes to ensuring availability of critical data.
While consumerization offers many benefits for both end users and the enterprise in terms of convenience, efficiency and productivity, it presents important challenges for IT departments, especially in terms of endpoint backup and data security. To reap the benefits of consumerization while avoiding security and other pitfalls requires an understanding of the origins of this latest IT trend, its enduring presence and how the most successful enterprises have effectively embraced this new reality.
Traditional backup protected information stored on servers in data centers, and it was very manageable. A predictable, controlled, contained environment that underwent scheduled backups and updates. But then the inevitable happened: office employees began saving information to desktops; mobile workers began doing the same with laptops; and backup admins began losing control.
