Die Zukunft für den Serviceaußendienst
Kevin Ashton, Technologieexperte aus Großbritannien, begründete am Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) das Auto-ID Lab, in dem Pionierarbeit auf dem Gebiet der RadioFrequency Identification (RFID) und anderen Sensoren geleistet wurde.
Im Zuge seiner Tätigkeit prägte Ashton im Jahr 1999 erstmals den Begriff des „Internet of Things”, kurz IoT, um die Vernetzung alltäglicher Gegenstände und Geräte sowie deren Übermittlung von Daten und Informationen zu beschreiben. Kevin Ashton gilt deshalb heute als „Vater” des IoT-Konzepts. Ende des Jahres 2015 war Kevin Ashton als Referent auf einem europäischen Kongress zum Thema Kundenservice geladen. Seine These: Das Servicemanagement im Außendienst sei die erste Branche, die mit dem Internet of Things eine grundlegende Transformation durchlaufe.
Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.
Through a collaborative, groundbreaking study with three prominent U.S. business schools, Senn Delaney has discovered that people who operate from a unique set of three core principles consistently perform at the top 10 percent of performance ratings. The joint study and subsequent research and surveys led to creation of our new, evidence-based, practical performance model that can be taught, practiced, reinforced, applied and measured.
Organizations must confront the reality that insider attacks are a significant threat and increasing in complexity. Given that so much of an organization's assets and information are online and accessible, organizations must take a proactive approach to defending against the insider attack. This proactive attack should involve a range of solutions that address identity and access management and information protection. Nothing can completely prevent all insider attacks, but those who adopt an aggressive proactive approach can help reduce risk, improve compliance, and enable the IT organization to better support business initiatives.
The identity and access management challenges that exist in the physical world - identity management, application security, access control, managing sensitive data, user activity logging, and compliance reporting - are even more critical in the virtual environments that are growing in use as IT seeks to streamline its operations and reduce operating costs. However, security risks are increased due to the nature of the virtualization environment and IT should seek to extend their security solutions from the physical server environment to the virtualization environment as seamlessly as possible.
Continue reading this white paper to learn how CA Content-Aware IAM solutions help protect customers in the physical world and similarly protect virtual environments by controlling identities, access, and information usage.

The Middleware Services Group within Information Technology Services (ITS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needed a comprehensive, dynamic solution for frequent server provisioning requests and, in particular, managed servers. Without such a solution, the likelihood that users would employ outside vendors significantly increased. Use of outside vendors would potentially increase security concerns, present additional costs, and further complicate system administration. Moving to a fully-interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, built on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, has allowed the middleware services team to deliver a flexible development and hosting environment that has fostered innovation and increased peace of mind.
As the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe prepare for Brexit (Britain’s exit from the European Union), information security experts are left wondering what this would mean to the security and risk management processes that have been put in place in the past and how they need to adjust to the emerging reality. This document discusses the impact of Brexit on privileged access management and what information security professionals may consider as immediate solutions to mitigate risks.

Global data deduplication provides important benefits over traditional deduplication processes because it removes redundant data through entire enterprises, not just single devices. Global deduplication increases the data deduplication ratio—the size of the original data measured against the size of the data store after redundancies are removed.
This helps reduce the amount of storage required at a time when businesses face exponential storage growth.
Chief benefits of global deduplication include:
Reductions in storage of up to 60%
The most optimal deduplication ratio
Massive reductions in backup-related WAN traffic
By shrinking storage capacity needs, data deduplication can cut storage costs quickly. At the same time, businesses today need to access and utilize their data in real time, making the most recent and relevant information available. By eliminating redundant data, deduplication technology makes it simpler for data to be managed across various b
