Business wants more fluid access to data while IT organizations must maintain security. As the variety of access and multitude of threats to network resources and sensitive information have grown, so has the need for more flexible and automated ways to effectuate security policies, controls and enforcement. Rarely is this need more keenly felt than at the network endpoint, where people, technology, information assets and requirements for security and compliance meet most directly.
In the new digital economy, competition, consumer engagement, and operational effectiveness are fundamentally changing, and accelerating. New competitors are redefining the landscape at unprecedented rates. Building and keeping trust mean delivering exceptional brand experiences, every time, via agile processes that balance consumer needs with cost to serve. One size does not fit all.

Miss the moment, miss the opportunity.

The average organization spends up to 10% of its annual budget on T&E, making it one of the largest controllable areas of discretionary spending. Combined with the fact that up to 90% of employee expenses are incurred on business trips each year, this means accurate expense management is more important than ever.
Yet many organizations still rely on manual processes and paper-based tracking that can create serious expense management challenges for their finance teams: how can they control costs when they lack visibility into spending? Yet how can they increase visibility and control without sacrificing employee trust and empowerment?
Streamlining expense management can help organizations save money, gain efficiencies and maintain control while increasing employee flexibility and freedom. But there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution—different organizations require different solutions to meet their unique needs. However, when they start to consider their options, nearly

Businesses can gain greater value from their BI investment by improving the way in which data flows to the BI system are managed. Many problems result when the ETL process is handled by a patchwork of scripting, custom coding, and various built-in schedulers that are part of existing ETL solutions, because these systems do not provide end-to-end execution, monitoring, and control of the ETL process.

From email to Dropbox and FTP, the file transfer process in most organizations is fraught with risk and simply does not meet most organizations’ corporate governance requirements. The result is that the status quo of file transfer in most organizations can be considered UFT—or Unmanaged File Transfer.
What is needed to overcome the problem, therefore, is Managed File Transfer (MFT)—a solution that will enable complete control over content, its lifecycle, access rights to that information, the maintenance of an audit trail, and disposition of data according to corporate governance requirements.
This white paper, sponsored by Attachmate and based on a survey conducted by Osterman Research, describes current file transfer practices and the extent of risk that organizations face by not managing file transfer properly. It also explains the benefits of MFT, provides guidelines for evaluating file transfer vendors, and describes FileXpress®, Attachmate’s MFT solution.
In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible.
In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases. Much of the blame for the problem can be laid at the feet of organizational structures that mandate conflicting goals for the two key departments at either end of the application development chain: development/testing (dev/test) and operations.
Where dev/test teams want to push their applications and updates into production quickly, operations teams want to go more slowly in order to maintain control and keep applications and systems available.
