eBook – How to accelerate IT innovation

Every company today is a software company and, as a result, business and technology strategies ought to be very intertwined. But often, those strategies aren’t in alignment, leading to challenges in information technology. And in today’s hyper-competitive business environment, that can be disastrous. Companies have to ask themselves: How can we tackle challenges of information technology? Are we doing IT wrong?

Today’s CIOs are the key players who enable organizations to respond to the disruptive forces and information technology challenges impacting all industries — mobile, IoT and SaaS among others. In order to increase speed and agility there must be a strong partnership between IT and the rest of the business.

Read this eBook to learn:

  • Why we have been doing IT wrong and how putting culture first and technology second, valuing reuse and leveraging KPIs can push CIOs to the right direction.
  • How IT teams can address their delivery gap and increase project delivery speed by adopting a new IT operating model: API-led connectivity.
  • How APIs can close the IT delivery gap and become the de facto way of packaging up and exposing applications, devices and data.

You can get IAM right

In an ideal world, we’d have the budget and time we need to get things done. And tomorrow would be predictable. But that’s simply not the case, especially in the IT universe.

As you well know, the world of identity and access management (IAM) is one of constant change, shrinking deadlines, minuscule budgets, overtaxed staff and unmerciful regulations. Unfortunately, the approach most organizations take to IAM involves piecing together ‘half solutions,’ in the hope that tomorrow’s solutions will address real-world needs.

The top five ways to relieve the pain of managing hybrid AD environments

Active Directory is everywhere and Azure Active Directory (AAD), its cloud-based cousin, is quickly gaining ground. Currently, nearly ninety percent of organizations worldwide are using Active Directory (AD) for on-premises resources (aka on-prem). That represents 500 million organizations and somewhere around 10 billion daily authentications. In fact, in the world of identity and access management (IAM), AD has become unavoidable and absolutely necessary for on-prem user authentication and authorization. You have to go through AD. It’s just how it’s done. Now, mix in the cloud – and Azure AD– and your management complexity just skyrocketed – and you could be in for a world of pain, if your on-prem or cloud identity environments are not managed and synced properly.

The 12 Essential Tasks of Active Directory Domain Services

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) administration and management includes 12 major tasks. These tasks cover a wide breadth of business needs and are not all performed solely by AD DS administrators. In fact, administrators can and should delegate several tasks to other members of their technical community, technicians, help desk personnel, even users such as team managers and administrative assistants. While delegation is a way to reduce the amount of work administrators have to do when managing AD DS infrastructures, it really only addresses one or two of the 12 tasks, for example, user and group administration as well as end point device administration. The other ten tasks can be staggering in nature — security, networked service administration, OU-Specific Management, Group Policy Object management and many more — and because of this can take up inordinate amounts of time,

Protecting the data of refugees and those who help them

To protect refugees, employees and supply transports—plus minimise costs—the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) wanted to standardise the management of Active Directory. After evaluating solution options, DRC deployed One Identity Active Roles. As a result, DRC established user templates and automated workflows for governing access for 7,000 global employees. Today, DRC can provision new users in an hour. IT staff have greater control over who can access which applications and data. And the organisation has increased staff efficiency, boosted savings and simplified regulatory compliance.

Customer Data Maturity Powers The Modern Enterprise

With the growing importance of customer insights in organizations, the role of analytics to extract insight from customer data and embed it back into organizational processes is at the forefront of business transformation. This increased profile has elevated the customer insights role from data geeks feeding the marketing funnel to critical change agents and strategic business partners. It has also made it crucial for companies to have a coherent and consistently executed customer data strategy. In order to seize the opportunity presented by this shift in data’s role, companies must plot a deliberate strategic course — beginning with a clear-eyed assessment of their current capabilities and needs.

How to Build a Data Foundation that Meets CCPA Compliance

Passed into law on June 28, 2018, the CCPA protects personal information of California residents in their role as consumers. It applies to companies worldwide who do business in California or handle California residents’ data – making its impact far-reaching.

The CCPA reinforces the customer-centric relationship between businesses and consumers, providing consumers with new rights such as access, deletion and portability of personal information. It also includes disclosure requirements such as the “selling” of personal information and it imposes new penalties on companies, including statutory damages, in the event of security breaches.
