Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

The healthcare payer ecosystem in the United States has changed dramatically over the last decade and is expected to evolve at an even faster pace over the next few years. Many world-class companies involved in healthcare payment processing are finding themselves constrained by their existing information technology infrastructure. The silos that they built around business-to-business (B2B) processing are constraining them, making it difficult to achieve governmental mandates and (more importantly) increase processing efficiency and competitive advantage. Gone are the days of a small set of data following static and simple standards traded between a limited set of organizations. Gone are the days where the rules for when data is valid versus invalid can expressed in a paragraph or two. Gone are the days when information about a healthcare payment was almost entirely about the "who," "when," and "how much."

But if you can’t explain how you got the answer, or what it means, it’s no good. Most self-service BI solutions can only display what has already happened, through reports or dashboards. And most have a predefined path of analysis that gives users very little creative freedom to explore new lines of thought. To maintain competitive advantage, your BI solution should allow business users to quickly and easily investigate and interrogate the data to find out why something happened – to uncover the root cause behind the “what.”

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.
