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.
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 is a fundamental requirement to digital growth. Businesses
and organizations cannot properly take advantage of mobile, cloud, or Internet of Things (IoT) technologies without a scalable and epeatable identity strategy. Without it, they have no way to identify and engage with their customers in a meaningful way — whether it be through a laptop, mobile phone, tablet, connected car, healthcare wearable, connected home device or the next great connected innovation. This guide is designed to help you understand the essentials of customer-focused identity and how it helps you engage with your customers.
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 TDWI Best Practices report explains the benefits that Hadoop and Hadoop-based products can bring to organizations today, both for big data analytics and as complements to existing BI and data warehousing technologies.
To build modern applications, developers could use some help. That is where application performance management (APM) solutions come in. This whitepaper will provide you 10 ways developers can use APM to improve the quality and performance of their software.

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.
Agency IT is tasked with building smarter and more responsive state and local government services, while CTOs look to enable government workforce mobility and address strategic issues, such as BYOD. Adding to the challenge is a rise in devices, data, and even multiple OS’s that IT must support and secure. With the decline in traditional Windows-based computing, these challenges are driving agencies toward cloud solutions that don't sacrifice security or IT manageability. See our featured cloud solution for government agencies that has IT leaders re-thinking how they enable mobile productivity.
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.
The agile approach is unique in that it focuses on the important aspects of the development process: the people and the artifacts - software and hardware. Learn how Agile encourages developers to be more iterative, team-oriented, self-improving and customer focused.
This paper introduces practical approaches to Agile focused on core principles and practices and shows how they improve project results for embedded systems development. Agile methods are a cohesive set of concepts, principles and practices to address the challenges of software development.
This white paper describes software as the invisible thread that links product parts into an intelligent whole. It examines software delivery for smart products and strategies for evolving software development into a business process. Agile development has become a cornerstone of most software development organizations. Marked by iterative processes that deliver incremental value over time, agile development has enabled organizations to manage software complexity more effectively and to improve quality and time to market compared with previous development processes.
Organizations developing products and systems in industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, medical devices and consumer electronics are undergoing a transformation driven by the rapid growth in functionality delivered by software and electronics. This paper outlines an approach for using this shift to gain a competitive advantage.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
