Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management.
As threats to password security have increased in recent years, multi-factor authentication (MFA) has rapidly gained adoption as a method for increasing the assurance of authentication for consumer and enterprise web and mobile applications.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property without impacting an employee’s ability to do their job.
The key is to gain visibility into user interactions with data and applications. Once this is achieved, you can apply a level of control based on the specific user’s risk and the sensitivity or value of the data. An organization’s data protection program must consider the human point — the intersection of users, data and networks. Enterprises must remain vigilant of data as it moves across hybrid environments and highlight the users who create, touch and move data who may pose the greatest risk to an organization.

Financial services organisations face increasing pressure to comply with rapidly evolving regulatory requirements for data integrity and security. In addition, valuable stored data continues to grow at exponential rates.
Meanwhile, customers expect around-the-clock access to their account information from their computers and mobile devices. In fact, many banks have developed customised mobile applications that enable 24/7/365 account transactions, including deposits and transfers of funds.
Technology has drastically transformed the banking industry and the way in which consumers transact. Mobile banking is now the new normal. Many consumers, especially millennials prefer to do most if not all of their financial transactions via smartphone due to the convenience in which it offers. Even so, the popularity of mobile banking does not imply that the end of retail banking is near as research has shown that consumers still prefer retail banking for complex services such as loan applications, new account openings and advisory services.

In today's cloud-based, mobile IT world, the need for security is rapidly growing. As enterprises continue to depend on the cloud for delivery of applications and more workers are using multiple types of devices to access those applications, the need to control who has access to what is also growing. This Technology Spotlight discusses the challenges of cloud identity access management and provides guidance on which IAM architectural solutions would benefit your business.
The next generation user expects more do-it-yourself IT offerings. Whether it’s self-service portals with interfaces to rival Amazon or personal mobile devices with 24/7 business access, users are requesting more self-service functions and capability.
To the modern user of technology “consumer-grade” has become a standard, and it’s ITs’ job to not only appease but genuinely satisfy contemporary users. This research highlights four ways to satisfy the modern user who brings their own knowledge, devices, applications and technical expectations to the workplace.
Sixty-three percent of data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords.
Why? To put it simply, password fatigue. Think of all the passwords you keep track of for your personal needs—your mobile banking app, your Gmail, your Facebook account, your Amazon Prime… the list goes on. Best practices tell us that we should use a unique and complex password for every service, but due to increased cloud adoption—enabling anytime access to applications from any device—users lean toward convenient but risky password practices.
Did you know that sales reps typically waste up to 16 hours per week on non-selling tasks?
If your sales team is spending too much time on non-selling tasks, logging sales activities to Salesforce, hunting for customer information and documents, or copy-pasting data between separate systems, they might resist the rise of mobile CRM solutions like Salesforce1.
However, it’s important to figure out how to enable these teams in the field, as 55% of salespeople will access sales applications exclusively through smartphones or tablets by the end of 2016. It’s not surprising that salespeople will increase their use of mobile apps 125% from 2015-2017.
In this whitepaper from Tact, you’ll learn 1) common challenges facing field sales teams, 2) a framework for thinking about mobile sales productivity, 3) essential characteristics for evaluating mobile sales solutions, and 4) key trends in mobile sales.
