With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Knowledge and strategic relationships fuel many organizations in today’s rapidly changing, global economy. As such, organizations need to leverage the individuals—and their networks—that possess the most relevant knowledge, whether they are current employees or are only loosely connected to the organization. To do this, organizations should create and leverage peer collaboration networks that enable them to identify and connect with individuals who have the unique skills, knowledge, and capabilities these organizations need. Bersin’s Research, Why Reputations and Networks Matter in the Open Talent Economy, indicates that this approach works in driving value—organizations that have effectively used internal reputation networks and profile databases have been able to increase key metrics such as employees’ time to productivity and innovation levels.

Employees don’t leave companies. They leave bad managers. Bad managers are the number one reason employees quit. We’ve all experienced them at some point. They are the leading cause of employee disengagement. Today, 70 percent of North American employees feel indifferent or disengaged at work, costing the U.S. economy nearly $500 billion every year* in lost productivity, substandard performance, and employee turnover.

In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.

To hire and retain top talent in today’s ultra competitive job market, you need accurate salary data. As the economy recovers and the unemployment rate declines, job seekers can be more selective—which often means waiting for the right salary. Although benefits, career paths, cultural fit, vacation time and work-life balance still matter, salary remains the most important factor to job seekers. In fact, two thirds of the respondents in Workforce 2020, an Oxford Economics and SAP SE study, said compensation matters most. Our Salary Guide helps you have more informed salary discussions and put together competitive compensation packages—the key to hiring and retaining the best talent.

Compensation—whether hourly wages or annual salaries—is a talent attraction magnet, a general employee motivator, a retention technique and a measure for the health of your business (and the economy as a whole). But there’s often confusion around salaries, both in what today’s accurate ranges actually are, and if every department within a company truly needs to evaluate compensation. Incorporating a strategic salary program that aligns with business goals requires a comprehensive understanding of the current labor landscape, and the role employee pay plays in every department within your company. This guide will discuss why compensation strategies should be discussed across departments, and how your company can address employee earnings today to help you maintain the right approach tomorrow. Let’s get started.

Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.

The financial services industry is one of the largest and most sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are quite often the key focal point for criminals. Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people, processes, applications, or systems. Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe. Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial services organizations the edge they need.

The attacks and tools being used against financial services organizations are part of a complex ecosystem. This may seem like an obvious statement at first glance. When you read most industry reports, they tend to focus on a single aspect of the whole ecosystem, as if it were unrelated to other types of attacks. To be honest, we’ve been just as guilty of having a myopic view of attack traffic as anyone else. We wanted to do something different for this report. Instead of looking at a single type of attack, we stepped back to look at attacks against banks, credit unions, trading companies, and other organizations that make up financial services as a whole. Most defenders only see a very small segment of the overall traffic, whether they’re the target or the vendor supplying defensive tools. The breadth of Akamai’s products and our visibility into a significant portion of Internet traffic allows us to research multiple stages of the attack economy.
