Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless
tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least
on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have
begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a
connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots
are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while
some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.
Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a
sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

Empowering the Automotive Industry through Intelligent Orchestration
With the increasing complexity and volume of cyberattacks, organizations must have the capacity to adapt quickly and confidently under changing conditions. Accelerating incident response times to safeguard the organization's infrastructure and data is paramount. Achieving this requires a thoughtful plan- one that addresses the security ecosystem, incorporates security orchestration and automation, and provides adaptive workflows to empower the security analysts.
In the white paper "Six Steps for Building a Robust Incident Response Function" IBM Resilient provides a framework for security teams to build a strong incident response program and deliver organization-wide coordination and optimizations to accomplish these goals.

Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?
This Executive White Paper, sponsored by Pitney Bowes Marketing Solutions, a provider of web-based marketing automation solutions, examines the competitive advantages offered by marketing automation portals and the potential impact of these types of portals on marketing campaigns deployed in complex, rapidly evolving markets.
