Software Development is a term to encompass the processes of software engineering combined with the research and goals of software marketing to develop computer software products. Synonyms include software life cycle and software process. There are several models for such processes, each describing approaches to a variety of tasks or activities that take place during the process.
Today’s customers are well-informed and empowered by information. They use other people and online experts as information sources. They interact with companies by multiple methods and expect a relevant dialogue with each brand. This paper introduces the IBM Predictive Customer Intelligence solution, which is designed to help your company create personalized, relevant experiences for individual customers with a focus on driving new revenue. Along with explaining the architecture of the solution, this paper covers how the solution works.
TechWell, IBM, uTest, and Keynote partnered on a powerful new survey that explores where today’s testers are spending their time, what obstacles they most often encounter, and where they think their attention should be focused.
In this eBook, we share how IBM software and solutions can help an organization manage quality and begin testing SAP solutions and the integrations they depend on earlier, continuously, while testing smarter.

Merchants and service providers that process credit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), now at Version 3.0. Whether the transaction occurs in a store or online, and regardless of the environment, from physical Point of Sale devices, to virtualized servers, or web servers in a public cloud, PCI DSS 3.0 mandates that these organizations are responsible for the security of their customers’ cardholder data. Read this white paper to learn more about the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 3.0.
In the modern age, customers are in control of when, where, and how they consume information. In this environment, customer-focused companies strive to make their content available to an ever-growing number of connected users and devices on a much larger scale than ever before, and to gather as much data and insight from these interactions as possible. To achieve this securely, companies need identity and access management (IAM) platforms that are adaptable, scalable, responsive, and high velocity— not typical characteristics of employee-facing IAM, but all too typical of other systems of engagement. This species of solution is worthy of a unique name: identity relationship management (IRM).
Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees as well as customers, partners, and devices, regardless of location. ForgeRock embraces this shift from internal, on-premises IAM to Identity Relationship Management (IRM): public-facing, secure, and accessible identity as business enabler. ForgeRock’s next-generation IRM platform is designed to empower CEOs and enterprises to engage with consumers via new revenue-generating services, while continuing to maintain our proven traditional IAM capabilities.
L'identité est une composante essentielle de la croissance numérique. Les entreprises et les organisations ne peuvent tirer pleinement parti des technologies mobiles, du cloud ou de l'Internet des objets (IdO, ou IoT en anglais) sans une stratégie d'identités évolutive et reproductible. Sans une telle stratégie, elles ne disposent d'aucun moyen d'identifier leurs clients et d'interagir avec eux de quelque manière que ce soit, par le biais d'un ordinateur portable, d'un mobile, d'une tablette, d'une voiture connectée, d'un objet connecté à porter (« wearable »), d'un appareil domotique ou de la toute dernière innovation en termes de connectivité. Ce guide a été conçu pour vous aider à comprendre les éléments fondamentaux de l'identité client et la manière dont elle peut vous aider à communiquer avec vos clients.
This paper gives information about how Automatic Exploit Prevention significantly reduces the risk of infection from widespread malware, or more targeted attacks using exploits – even when a zero-day vulnerability is used.
Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile
Modern data centers have and continue to undergo transformation. Driven by familiar trends, green IT, endpoint growth, externalization, and increased resource requirements, modern data centers support more services, users, and data than ever before. The potential of new risks to the modern data center demands renewed attention to data center security. Data center architects must build in proper security controls, and policies and processes to address and mitigate these new risks.
Recent changes in hacking combined with the emergence of the Internet of Everything have profoundly changed how we protect our systems, driving us to think about a new approach to cybersecurity. In this paper, learn about the challenges that created the need for a new threat-centric security model spanning the full attack continuum: before, during and after an attack.
