Organizations today depend upon their networks to increase productivity and reduce network infrastructure and maintenance costs. Accordingly, these networks must be secure and perform reliably in order to accommodate geographically dispersed users. Unplanned remote site downtime due to equipment failure or adverse environmental conditions can severely impair network service.
It wasn’t long ago that being on the cutting edge of business meant having a website where customers could purchase your products, but that quickly changed. Soon, it wasn’t enough just to have an e-commerce presence; you had to offer an interactive and engaging customer experience (see Web 2.0).
Now the standard has shifted once again; in order to truly compete in the modern economy, your business needs to have a mobile storefront on smart phones and tablets. Without this mobile presence, you’ll lose business to competitors who have them.
With this new challenge comes high risk as well as great reward. With mobility, the client side of your applications is more important than ever. Instead of accessing your website from the safe confines of work or home, your customers can now perform sensitive transactions anywhere. As a result, mobile applications, and the devices and data they interact with, can now be more easily attacked.
Explore the latest thinking on use of mobile technology to deliver business value by enabling sales and service processes - and transform processes across the enterprise. Business software vendors can best support their customers by collaborating with strategic partners to co-innovate and foster a mobile ecosystem.
Consider how SAP can help you improve customer relationship management. Build a synergistic ecosystem with employees, customers, and partners to deliver customer value - where customer demand drives the supply chain and customer insight inspires innovation. Quickly respond to sustain competitive advantage and profitability.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) can be a very polarizing topic for IT. Some view it as a solution that can save money, improve end user satisfaction, and enable remote employees. For others, BYOD represents risk of data leakage, loss of control, and signing up to support an endless ecosystem of unknown devices.
No matter what your opinion on BYOD is, the impact on IT policy cannot be overstated. Through 2017, Gartner reports that 90% of organizations will support some aspect of BYOD.

With more than 1 billion smartphones in consumers' pockets at the beginning of 2013, mobile is driving a second Internet revolution that's even more profound than the first one. Mobile creates new value for consumers and businesses, alters cost structures, and disrupts ecosystems.

This fourth annual mobile trends report revisits our 2013 mobile trends, elaborates on how they will continue to evolve in 2013, and highlights new mobile trends that we expect to see this year.

Modern enterprises are rapidly shifting core business processes away from legacy
technologies and standardizing on mobile devices and cloud services. As a result,
these organizations are quickly outgrowing basic mobile device management (MDM)
capabilities and apps like email and calendar. Building a secure mobile and cloud
architecture now requires a comprehensive approach to enterprise mobility management
(EMM). It requires a unified platform with defense-grade security, massive scalability, a
broad ecosystem of technology partners, enhanced Office 365 security, and integrated
desktop and mobile management. And it has to provide all of this without locking
customers into a proprietary technology stack.

The financial services industry is one of the largest and most
sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves
around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are
quite often the key focal point for criminals.
Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of
massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains
by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry
do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people,
processes, applications, or systems.
Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in
the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends
is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe.
Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers
interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial
services organizations the edge they need.

There are myriad software products, from complete CRM platforms that offer analytics to standalone or add-on software products that focus solely on analytics. There are analytics apps that can be added to your existing CRM platform. Or there’s the option to outsource analytics to a growing number of service providers.
“The technologies are changing rapidly. There are a zillion startups offering either new tools or technologies, so it is kind of hard to navigate,”Mike Gualtieri, an analystfor Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., said in a recent webcast on analytics. “There isn’t just one platform that you’re going to need.
There’s a whole ecosystem of platforms.”
Having the right people on staff who know how to use the technology is equally important, analysts say. Analytics aren’t just for statisticians anymore—they’re used by sales, marketing and customer service teams in daily decision making.
The healthcare payer ecosystem in the United States has changed dramatically over the last decade and is expected to evolve at an even faster pace over the next few years. Many world-class companies involved in healthcare payment processing are finding themselves constrained by their existing information technology infrastructure. The silos that they built around business-to-business (B2B) processing are constraining them, making it difficult to achieve governmental mandates and (more importantly) increase processing efficiency and competitive advantage. Gone are the days of a small set of data following static and simple standards traded between a limited set of organizations.
Gone are the days where the rules for when data is valid versus invalid can expressed in a paragraph or two. Gone are the days when information about a healthcare payment was almost entirely about the "who," "when," and "how much."
