eBook: Engaging Your Entire Workforce

Traditional human capital management products focus on salaried employees. HCM strategies and tools should engage and retain the entire workforce.

The hourly workforce is growing. Hourly employees represent nearly 60 percent of the U.S. workforce and 80 percent of all new hires annually. But HCM solutions typically have been geared to salaried workers with regular schedules, not the vast range of hourly workers now in the workforce who deserve to fully participate in talent management initiatives, making them feel like valued members of the organization.

Why SD-WAN Is a Critical Component in the Future of Retail

The seismic effects of digital transformation are reshaping the retail world. Many retailers are starting to use technology to enhance the customer experience, which will be the defining characteristic of market winners in the years to come. But some, hamstrung by legacy WANs, are struggling to adapt their organizations to bandwidth-intensive applications that are the cornerstones of the digital world. They know they need to change, but to what? SD-WAN, which abstracts the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network, is the modern approach many retailers are choosing to keep pace with digital transformation. Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN makes the network more agile and reduces cost. For organizations looking to compete and win in the brave new digital world download our free whitepaper to learn more.

How Broad All-Flash Vendor Portfolios Help IT Customers

In the current 3rd Platform computing era, enterprises of all sizes are being asked to continue to support legacy applications while providing support for next-generation applications (NGAs) in mobile computing, social media, big data/analytics, and cloud environments. At the same time, most information technology (IT) organizations are consolidating around virtual infrastructure for both legacy and new applications. This has significantly changed the I/O profiles that storage infrastructure has to deal with, and it has become clear that for most primary storage workloads, and even now for some secondary workloads, hard disk drives (HDDs) no longer adequately meet requirements. As a result, we are seeing overall enterprise storage revenue shift away from HDD-based designs toward newer flash-based designs.

eBook: Best Practices in Human Capital Management

An engaged workforce is satisfied and productive. To make this a reality for your organization, you need a human capital strategy that can help you think strategically about managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce.

However, in many cases, the systems that manage human capital alienate rather than engage both employees and managers - making it challenging, for example, to easily access schedules or paystubs without having to call HR or do self-service assessments of career path options.

Webinar – Rock Your SOC (Security Operations Center) with Watson for Cyber Security

In today’s threat environment, given the sophistication and increase in cyber-attacks, security analysts must investigate and accurately identify threats on a daily basis to detect and stop threats in time before damage is caused. During an investigation, analysts need to pivot on multiple data sources such as threat feeds, security blogs, research articles, talking to peers and more. It can quickly become overwhelming when an analyst needs to investigate each incident in 20 minutes or less just to keep up with current alerts. Inaccuracies can creep in while they are simultaneously navigating and correlating information from multiple sources.

With the cognitive power of Watson for Cyber Security, analysts can now use QRadar Advisor with Watson to investigate incidents compiled by the QRadar security analytics platform and provide key insights to qualify and identify root cause of the incident.

Watch this webinar to see how a Tier 1 and Tier 2 SOC analyst uses QRadar Advisor with Watson to accurately identify and understand threats at speed and scale. See the complete lifecycle of an investigation in the SOC from when an offense is compiled by QRadarsecurity analytics platform to how you can use the results from the investigation from Watson to shutdown threats.
