The whitepaper is intended for security practitioners as well as developers and administrators of applications who can benefit from secure communications. The paper presents carious strategies for securing applications using Oracle Solaris 11 security and hardware-assisted cryptographic acceleration features of Oracle's SPARC processors. The paper unveils the core mechanisms, configuration, and deployment strategies, as well as the role of relevance of using Oracle Solaris Cryptographic Framework and Java Cryptography Extension-based techniques for delivering a high-performance, end-to-end security solution. With Oracle's new Software in Silicon capabilities coupled with an innovation cache and memory hierarchy, Oracle's SPARC M7 processor delivers dramatically higher processing speed and revolutionary protection against malware and software errors.
Configure, Price, Quote. It sounds simple, but what happens when you have thousands of products, complex pricing calculations, a lengthy approval process, and sales reps that just don't have the time to worry about it all?
Depending on who drags their feet, getting a quote to an interested customer can take weeks. Even when the proposal is complete, what makes sure that the product configuration is valid, or that the pricing calculations are correct?
That's where Oracle Configure, Price, and Quote (CPQ) Cloud comes in, the proven CPQ leader. Enterprise and midsize businesses around the world have eliminated human error and quote turn-around time by automating their configuration and quoting processes with Oracle CPQ Cloud.
Today’s software and systems engineers are being challenged to balance speed of delivery with improving quality, reducing cost and minimizing risk. Managing changes to code and configurations through development, staging, user acceptance and production environments can be challenging. Having more “production-like” environments that can be controlled and serviced by the development team can add value, eliminate waste and speed delivery. Creating such environments can eliminate risk because more errors can be found well ahead of production deployment when they are less costly to fix. IBM can help you adopt agile methods improve your execution and deliver high-quality software for better business results
Digital transformation will fail without a commitment to automation - what AHEAD
refers to as Relentless Automation. With the advent of public cloud and all of
its promise, along with the ripple effect from the DevOps mantra of “automate
everywhere”, technology teams must spin up new infrastructure, maintain
configurations, and set up and tear down environments much faster than ever before.
Of course, no one should automate for the sake of automating, or to simply be ahead of the curve. But while not every
activity warrants automation - whether due to the complexity and nuance of the task, or its infrequent occurrence - Relentless
Automation means identifying those tasks and processes where the benefits of automation outweigh both its upfront and
Thankfully, the business benefits of standardizing and automating IT work are easy to spot:
> Freeing up staff for higher value work
> Reduction in errors and process variability
> More auditability and accountability, helping
There is no single anti-malware product that can block all malware infiltration and subsequent activity. The only way to combat the malware threats is through an end-to-end, integrated, real-time, context-aware, holistically-managed system.
The path to creating a secure application begins by rigorously testing source code for all vulnerabilities and ensuring that use of the application does not compromise or allow others to compromise data privacy and integrity.
No business is immune to the threat of IT downtime caused by natural and manmade disasters. Natural disasters—such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, fires, and floods—can happen with little to no advanced warning. But the bigger risk is often human-induced events—from simple IT configuration errors to significant data center problems. If you lack a rock-solid disaster recovery (DR) plan, any of these unpredictable events—natural or manmade—could bring your business and its revenue streams to a halt. Yet many organizations are not well prepared for the unknown. The randomness of such events lulls people into a sense of false security—“That’s not likely to happen here.” While you can hope to avoid events that threaten the continuity of your business, the reality remains unchanged: Disasters happen—so you need to prepare for them.
