Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers.
Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously.
What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.

In the last few years, a wave of digital technologies changed the banking landscape - social/ mobile altered the way banks engage with customers, analytics enabled hyper personalized offerings by making sense of large datasets, Cloud technologies shifted the computing paradigm from CapEx to OpEx, enabling delivery of business processes as services from third-party platforms.
Now, a second wave of disruption is set to drive even more profound changes - including robotic process automation (RPA), AI, IOT instrumentation, blockchain distributed ledger and shared infrastructure, and open banking platforms controlled by application programming interfaces (API). As these technologies become commercialized, and demand increases for digitally-enabled services, we will see unprecedented disruption, as non-traditional banks and fintechs rush into all segments of the banking space. This whitepaper examines key considerations for banks as they explore value in the emerging Digital 2.0 world.
Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and
less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as
increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates
obstacles for many manufacturers, and this is made more difficult by the need to
identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
NexCOBOT, a NEXCOM company, offers a flexible, modular robotics solution
integrating artificial intelligence (AI) with machine vision and powered by the
new Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products. The solution brings together
the insight of artificial intelligence, the mobility of robotics, and the capabilities
of machine vision, providing a new level of precision and optimization for
manufacturing and industrial implementations

Choosing the right pest control software is crucial to reach your end goal. This guide will help you
determine whether your existing software solution (if you have one) offers everything you need to
make smarter business decisions.
The digital transformation that organizations are striving for today requires a mindset of "no limits" in terms of securely exposing critical business assets for internal and external consumption. In order to be an agile, digital business, enterprises need to seamlessly connect across hybrid environments, applications, data and processes, keeping a keen eye on an open cloud strategy. They also need a secure integration framework to provide controlled access, a single dashboard providing performance insights, and easy access to digital assets for your developers. This webcast will explore all of these areas in depth, to support your enterprise's quest to become a next-generation digital business.
Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.
NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c

Agent-based security solutions such as anti-virus software rely
on controlling all processes on a system. This approach breaks
in sandboxed environments as one process cannot control other aspects of the system. To secure mobile, IT has to replace traditional PC management tools with purpose-built enterprise mobility management (EMM) Platforms, designed to enable end-user productivity while securing apps, content and devices.
Enterprises tend not to view project management as a holistic process. Much like the disparate systems they have in place, they see a disparate collection of issues.
They typically look to solve specific pain points with single applications. Rather than migrate an entire enterprise to a new system, they are looking to manage a problem spot and have it flow into a specific component (e.g., cost, human capital leverage, or how demand is driven) as needed. In many cases, however, the pain points are symptoms of a larger issue, and to remove them the situation must be viewed in the context of the full project life cycle. Oracle Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Cloud, part of the integrated suite that is Oracle ERP Cloud, not only does this, but it’s also built with the user in mind… solving the PPM pain points through role-based analytics, social collaboration, optimization, costing, control, and mobile solutions for today’s project team.
The manufacturing industry has entered a completely new technological realm that did not even exist five years ago. Three industrial revolutions forever changed manufacturing—and the world—and the fourth is now underway. Factories have had to adapt rapidly with the advent of advanced automation and robotics as well as software to manage processes and control. The onset of digital manufacturing accelerates the need for new approaches. While consumers typically embrace disruptive technology with enthusiasm, manufacturers inevitably approach new technology with caution, carefully evaluating how it can improve their businesses. Eventually, however, caution must be replaced with innovation to ensure survival. Those organizations that find themselves on the wrong side of the technology curve today will face increasing challenges to remain competitive as time marches forward.
Since the sepia-toned days of the early 19th century, industry has sought effective ways to control manufacturing and production processes. New technology has greatly influenced factories and plants, resulting in new operational approaches to maximize benefits and achieve 100% ROI in a very short time.

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis regulatory exams have become increasingly demanding for governance, risk, and compliance professionals. New rules brought about by the Dodd-Frank Act will continue to shape future examinations including safety and soundness, compliance, market conduct, and risk-based targeted exams. We can expect these changes will require examiners to spend more time onsite, request more documents, and extend the scope and/or depth of their examinations. This means it is more important than ever to avoid the classic mistake of sharing examination documents through ad-hoc, manual processes and delivering highly sensitive data through unsecured channels like mail, e-mail, thumb drives, and FTP.
In response to these increasing burdens financial institutions are looking to take control with a more structured, collaborative process for collecting, refining, and submitting regulatory information. Download this white paper to learn more about Intralinks VIA.
La compliance con il GDPR può essere ottenuta attraverso una combinazione di persone, processi e tecnologia. Questo documento illustra soluzioni che possano aiutare le aziende nel loro percorso verso la compliance con il GDPR. Ma è possibile estendere la protezione e rafforzare ulteriormente i controlli di sicurezza attraverso l'autenticazione forte e del rischio o la workload automation, per automatizzare l'elaborazione dei dati personali, facilitando il rispetto del GDPR e di normative analoghe. Le normative tendono a stabilire i requisiti minimi richiesti ma, nell'application economy, le aziende aperte devono garantire la due diligence per proteggere una delle risorse più importanti e critiche: le informazioni private dei clienti.
