Modern application delivery leaders realize that their primary goal is to deliver value to the business and its customers, faster. For many, this is a significant shift from the past, when they primarily focused on cost control and efficiency.
Today, they must connect the work they do and the results they produce to business outcomes. To do this, application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders use a new set of metrics that help them monitor and improve the value they deliver, based on feedback from business partners and customers. In this report, we highlight these new metrics that connect business outcomes to app delivery performance — as well as the practices and tools that modern application delivery teams and their AD&D leaders use to collect and report them.
In the domain of data science, solving problems and answering questions through data analysis is standard practice. Data scientists experiment continuously by constructing models to predict outcomes or discover underlying patterns, with the goal of gaining new insights. But data scientists can only go so far without support.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices. This white paper describes the types of PM services that can help safeguard the uptime of data centers and IT equipment rooms. Various PM methodologies and approaches are discussed. Recommended practices are suggested.

Challenge: An air purifier manufacturer needed to remind customers to periodically change filters to maintain product efficiency and deliver consistent customer experience.
Solution: We helped them develop a Bluetooth enabled ‘smart’ air filter, where an embedded sensor measured the effectiveness of the filter and relayed that information to an iOS or Android app. Users were alerted when filters needed replacing, and given the opportunity to buy directly through online retailers and also to subscribe to the Amazon Device Replenishment Service.
• Increased revenue through replacement filter sales
• Expected to touch 50,000 users in the first year
• Integrated with Amazon Alexa for seamless digital experience
• Powerful product differentiation in a crowded market
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has already begun to improve targeting, segmentation, media buying and planning in the advertising industry. AI algorithms can extract complex patterns from vast numbers of data points, and in so doing, are able to self-correct and learn patterns. The revenue potential that improved personalization, segmentation and targeting that AI provides to marketers is huge.
At HERE Technologies, we are placing AI and machine learning at the center of our products and services. We see the opportunity in automated machine learning to enrich the targeting and effectiveness of mobile advertising campaigns in real time. But the outcome of implementing such technology depends on the quality of data being fed into it from the outset. AI wouldn’t be as helpful if it’s being used alongside questionable location data or audience data.
HERE’s location data provides a strong thread that can be woven throughout every stage of the media buying process, offering more context and
Organizations with a strategy execution system are three times more likely to achieve success. Fortunately there are ways to improve your chance of producing relevant, executable strategy. In this executive brief, Harvard Professor Robert Kaplan provides practical advice on how to define strategic outcomes, measure your projects’ strategic success, and bind execution to strategy. He discusses project and portfolio management tools that can reach across the entire organization, capturing data on projects’ content, objectives, performance, and spending.
To grow your subscriber base, reduce churn and control costs, it is imperative that you achieve and maintain a deep understanding of the customer experience throughout your organization. This white paper highlights IBM Tivoli® Netcool® Service Quality Manager Service Solutions — how it can change the way telecommunications providers are taking new services to market and helping to crystallize.

What is ransomware?
Ransomware is a malicious software designed to hold a user’s files (such as healthcare records, financial contracts, manufacturing blueprints, software code, and other documents) for ransom by encrypting them and demanding the user pay a fee (often in Bitcoin) to decrypt them.
How ransomware works
Attackers initiate attacks using an array of tactics. Ransomware infections often first begin with an exploit kit — which are software kits designed to identify software vulnerabilities on endpoints and then upload and execute malicious code on the endpoint.
Although variants of ransomware behave differently — there are many ways that Cisco can help. Download this whitepaper today to find out more.
