At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard

New seismic and disruptive events are upending the pace of innovation – and leading companies are jumping into the fray, trying to differentiate themselves through emerging business models. But here is the hard truth: Enterprises are wasting money, resources and time putting on a facade of innovation that falls short of customer and shareholder expectations. There is an inherent expectation that these incremental, and in many cases “siloed,” investments or initiatives will lead to sustained business impact. The time has come to move beyond “innovation theater” into a more mature adoption of innovation that drives measurable business results.
Now is the time for Innovation 2.0.
The pace of disruption has never been greater. New entrants are removing customer pain points and gaining market share faster than ever before. Names such as Airbnb, Uber, Bitcoin, and Netflix have upset business models seemingly overnight.
This is a time of rapid and dramatic progress in the cloud communications landscape. New technological innovations help companies incorporate location-independent systems, allowing workers to collaborate and communicate wherever they may be. And all signs indicate this is only the beginning, with the industry poised for unprecedented growth.
In fact, as enterprise software moves to the cloud, the traditional unified communications space is having its own dramatic shift. The consumer experiences from Snapchat to Instagram to Facebook among other consumer technologies—are changing the expectations for communications. New models for collaboration and engagement, supported by big data and the cloud, provide a whole new world of opportunities.
For decades, organizations built “walls” around their
company and leveraged network perimeters as the first
line of defense. But as workspaces have become more
fluid, the security perimeter has changed. The concept of
creating a network and protecting it by firewall may not be
enough. It’s time to rethink a traditional, perimeter-based
The rise of digital in the marketing mix has brought a whirlwind of change to the agency space, from work being brought in house to competition from consultancies and service providers. What an agency looks like in just five years is going to be tremendously different from the traditional model we know today.
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
As much as moving to the Cloud has been a hot trend over the past several years with Human Capital Management systems, in today’s world, financial management systems are not far behind. We’re starting to see the activity significantly ramp up within the financial management system space. So much so, that according to research done by Gartner, the Cloud is expected to become the dominant deployment model across all areas of financial management applications by 2025. Spending on cloud or SaaS-based applications will increase from 30% of the total market spend in 2015 to 47% by 2020.
So which financial systems are organizations shifting to the cloud model and why is this happening—aside from following the trend in HR?

The 2013 holiday shopping season blew by at a record pace. With six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas than 2012, Adobe Digital Index speculated that retailers may lose up to $1.5 billion in potential revenue if marketing programs failed to capture even greater daily sales than the Digital Index model predicted. Now that the season is complete, Digital Index has just released its 2013 eCommerce Benchmark and Holiday Shopping Report which offers more than 25 eCommerce benchmarks — and points to some holiday shopping surprises.
