Download this IDC report to find out why organizations like yours will need to make decisions about replacing existing general-purpose hardware or supplementing it with hardware dedicated to AI-specific processing tasks.
Key considerations when developing a strong and customer-friendly approach to intelligent authentication. Bank fraud is on the rise. In fact, according to a recent survey of 43 major banks around the world, it’s not just the number of fraud cases that is going up; so, too, is the value of fraud overall. In large part, this increase in fraud is the result of identity theft scams. Rather than attempting some sort of high-stakes virtual bank heist for all the gold in the vault, most online thieves seem content simply stealing money from every-day customer’s accounts when they aren’t looking.
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.ą
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.

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?
To provide the DevOps community an objective perspective
on what quality
Digital business initiatives have expanded in scope and complexity as companies have increased the rate of digital innovation to capture new market opportunities. As applications built using fine-grained microservices and functions become pervasive, many companies are seeing the need to go beyond traditional API management to execute new architectural patterns and use cases.

Technology empowers governments to improve how and when they reach citizens. It improves the quality and accessibility of public services, ultimately creating a more productive environment where citizens can thrive. Leveraging the cloud is one way governments can accelerate this shift, with benefits occurring first inside the institution.
AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around
In Forrester’s evaluation of the emerging market for conversational computing platforms, we identified the seven most significant providers — Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nuance Communications, Oracle, and Rulai — in the category and evaluated them. This report details our findings about how each vendor scored against nine criteria and where they stand in relation to each other. Application developers should use this review to select the right partners for their conversational computing platform needs.
To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets
In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated.
The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to:
• Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data
• Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud
• Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers
• Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads
• Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance
Virtualization is the standard in enterprise IT environments for consolidating servers, enhancing businstrators that reduces their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and helps speed the application development process.

Patches correct bugs, flaws and provide enhancements, which can prevent potential user impact, improve user experience and potentially save your technicians time researching and repairing issues that could have already been resolved or prevented with an existing update. Clients generally understand that their systems need to be patched, but they likely do not have the expertise to comfortably approve and install patches without help. When operating within the IT services industry, patching is one of the first areas that competitors auditing your clients will assess. Developing best practices to manage the risks associated with the approval and deployment of patches is critical to your IT department's service offering.
