New Academic Enterprise With Los Angeles Homeland Security Advisory Council

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 maggio 2019

The Pepperdine School of Public Policy has announced it will form an innovative academic enterprise with the Los Angeles Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) focused on disaster preparedness, crisis management, and resiliency through engaging the public, private, and civic sectors. The new enterprise, to be called the Homeland Security Advisory Council at the School of Public Policy, is positioned to prepare the current and next generation of public leaders by harnessing the school’s unique curriculum dedicated to exploring a full range of cross-sector and information technology solutions to public policy challenges. The formation of this enterprise with HSAC, a current 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to ensure the security and resilience of the Los Angeles region in the face of threats and hazards, will include the transfer of all HSAC assets and intellectual property to Pepperdine and is a strategic step for the University in expanding its role around issues facing crisis management today.
HSAC currently offers a variety of programs focused on technology, engagement, capability building, and partnerships for crisis managers, policymakers, and public safety professionals, in addition to students pursuing a master’s or doctoral degree. Through the partnership with the School of Public Policy, HSAC will expand its current offerings, create new educational and training programs, and reach a broader participant group that includes graduate students and audiences throughout California and the nation.
“With the combination of educational programs and technology, it’s fair to say that the launch of the new Homeland Security Advisory Council at the School of Public Policy is a groundbreaking initiative in American higher education,” said Pete Peterson (MPP ’07), dean of the School of Public Policy. “Where else should something creative like this happen but here in Los Angeles?” Demonstrating a shared commitment to service, community, and the public good, the move also includes the acquisition of HSAC’s crisis and event management platform, SALUS – The Crisis Hub, which uses geographic information systems (GIS) to manage and analyze data in order to build upon existing relationships with municipal and state governments. GIS is typically used to visualize information, such as patterns and relationships, and helps crisis managers make informed decisions and gain a more complete situational awareness before, during, and after a crisis or major event. SALUS also supports and facilitates strategies that address homelessness in Los Angeles by providing a single, common platform accessible to the mayor’s office and all 16 departments in the city’s Unified Homelessness Response Center.
“Since its inception in 2002, HSAC has become indispensable to improving public safety communication and collaboration in Los Angeles,” said Peter Lowy, chair of HSAC. “The result is an L.A. region that is today better prepared, more secure, and increasingly more resilient in the face of threats and hazards. This new academic enterprise at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy is driven by our shared dedication to serving diverse communities with growing needs. I am eager to see the strength of our combined efforts in utilizing emerging technologies to advance meaningful policy solutions throughout Greater Los Angeles.”

Zendesk Releases Benchmark Guide for Enterprise Reports

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 ottobre 2018

Zendesk, Inc. (NYSE: ZEN) today released the Zendesk Benchmark Guide for Enterprise. The new research reports feature insights and best practices for two different types of large companies: Digital Natives that have been considered digital since their founding, and Digital Transformers, more traditional companies that are in the process of modernizing their approach to customer support.The report details what sets companies with the most sophisticated customer support operations apart from their industry peers. For both Digital Natives and Digital Transformers, the companies with the best performing support teams share a commitment to scalability, consistency, innovation, and proactive customer service.One surprising finding: a company’s age isn’t the primary factor linked to its approach to customer support. In fact, plenty of younger companies are still working to modernize their support operations, while several established companies have already mastered the digital landscape.The high performers in both groups also view their support software as a platform, using apps, integrations and APIs to give agents the information they need to move quickly, maintaining consistency and context across channels. For both Digital Natives and Digital Transformers, Zendesk Benchmark data shows the companies that face the most challenges are those that directly serve consumers. Traditional enterprise companies that are B2C have a higher volume of requests, lower customer satisfaction scores and the slowest reply times of all company types, implying a digital transformation is most urgently necessary for this group.At the same time, Digital Native companies in the B2C category still face high customer expectations while handling a massive volume of requests. They see nearly eight times the volume of customer requests and have an average customer satisfaction score that is nearly 10 percentage points lower than companies serving other businesses or operating internally. While these large companies tend to take full advantage of their support software, they see a constant need to innovate and scale to keep up with changing customer expectations. Digital Natives and Digital Transformers also differ in their self-service capabilities. Digital Native help centers have twice as many articles and a ratio of self-service content views to total ticket volume that is five times higher than that of more traditional enterprise companies. The takeaway for Digital Transformers is that investing more in self-service can lower costs, drive better customer satisfaction scores and improve agent efficiency.

Foxconn’s HCM Leads $7 Million Series A Investment in Cambridge Blockchain for Enterprise Data Management and Digital Identity

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 18 maggio 2018

Cambridge Blockchain, Inc announced a Series A equity financing today, led by HCM Capital, the venture arm of Foxconn Technology Group. HCM was joined by Partech and Digital Currency Group in a $7 million first close, including new capital and conversion of outstanding debt. The investors expressed their confidence in the company as it prepares to extend its blockchain-based Enterprise Data Management software to new applications. “HCM has invested in blockchain start-ups since early 2016, as we saw the potential of distributed ledger technology with enterprise use cases including Industrial Internet, IoT-enabled manufacturing, supply chain provenance, trade finance, and payments,” said Jack Lee, Founding Managing Partner of HCM Capital. “However, we soon realized that digital identity is a critical building block to achieve value through decentralized information transfers. Cambridge Blockchain has the best team and experience handling strict requirements from financial institutions for privacy and personal data compliance, which can be extended to grow new applications in the decentralized digital economy of the future.” Romain Lavault, General Partner at Partech, explained that as the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes full effect this month, Cambridge Blockchain is well-positioned to expand its enterprise data management software to serve a broader global market. “Blockchain has been a hot buzzword for a few years now, but very few software companies have actually reached full-scale production rollouts. This is where Cambridge Blockchain has impressed us and their first customers in Europe.”“Cambridge Blockchain is a leader in bringing distributed ledgers into large financial institutions,” remarked Barry Silbert, Founder and CEO of Digital Currency Group. “The company is making the know-your-customer process more efficient, while laying the groundwork for a future in which users can better own and safeguard their personal information.” Foxconn, one of the top 10 technology companies in the world (ranked by Forbes, 2017), is now exploring deployments of Cambridge Blockchain software to improve IoT device management and global supply chain operations. “Foxconn’s HCM brings a compelling strategic view of blockchain and digital identity,” said Matthew Commons, Cambridge Blockchain’s CEO. “We’re delighted to have their involvement, as well as the renewed backing of Partech and DCG.”

Hewlett Packard Enterprise svela i meccanismi che regolano l’economia cybercriminale

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 18 maggio 2016

TheBusinessofHackinHewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ha pubblicato oggi “The Business of Hacking”, un report completo che analizza nel dettaglio l’economia alla base del cybercrimine. Lo studio fornisce un’analisi approfondita delle motivazioni che si nascondono dietro agli attacchi lanciati dai cybercriminali, nonché della ‘value chain’ creata dalle organizzazioni illegali per estendere la propria portata e massimizzare i profitti. Sulla base di queste informazioni, il report offre suggerimenti utili per mitigare i rischi e ostacolare questi gruppi criminosi.Il profilo del cybercriminale e la natura interconnessa dell’economia sotterranea di cui fa parte si sono evoluti enormemente in questi ultimi anni. Sempre più spesso gli hacker adottano sofisticati principi “manageriali” per creare e ampliare le proprie attività, incrementando impatto e profitti finanziari, ossia le principali motivazioni che guidano quasi tutti i cybercriminali. Disporre di maggiori informazioni consente alle organizzazioni di diminuire i rischi e fronteggiare i cybercriminali, contrastando la loro struttura organizzativa.“Le aziende che pensano alla cybersicurezza solo come ad una casella da spuntare nelle proprie to do list, spesso perdono l’opportunità di sfruttare il valore insito nella cybersecurity intelligence”, ha dichiarato Andrzej Kawalec (@digitalkawalec), Head of HPE Security Research e Chief Technology Officer, HPE Security Services di Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “Questo report ci offre una prospettiva diversa sul modo di operare degli hacker e sulle modalità con cui li possiamo ostacolare in ogni fase della loro value chain criminale”.
I cybercriminali di oggi si avvalgono spesso di un modello operativo formale e di una ‘value chain’ strutturalmente molto simili a quelli delle normali aziende e in grado di garantire un ROI superiore lungo tutto il ciclo di vita di un attacco. I responsabili della sicurezza delle aziende, i legislatori e le forze dell’ordine che intendono bloccare i cybercriminali devono per innanzitutto conoscere tutti gli elementi che compongono la value chain di questa economia sotterranea. Gli elementi critici dei modelli di value chain cybercriminali comprendono solitamente:
· Gestione delle risorse umane – recruitment, selezione e remunerazione dello ‘staff’ di supporto necessario per portare a termine attacchi specifici; anche formazione e training fanno parte di quest’area.
· Operation – ‘management team’ che assicura il regolare flusso di informazioni, nonché i fondi lungo tutto il ciclo di vita di un attacco, ed è concretamente impegnato a ridurre i costi e massimizzare il ROI in ogni fase del processo.
· Sviluppo tecnico – la prima linea che dispone di tutte le competenze tecniche necessarie per perpetrare qualsiasi attacco, facendosi carico di attività di ricerca, messa a frutto delle vulnerabilità, automazione, ecc.
· Marketing e vendite – team impegnati a far sì che la reputazione del gruppo cybercriminale sia forte e percepita nel mercato underground, e perché i relativi prodotti siano ritenuti affidabili dal target dei potenziali acquirenti.
· Logistica outbound – persone e sistemi responsabili del delivery al cliente dei beni acquistati, siano essi grandi volumi di dati di carte di credito, cartelle mediche, proprietà intellettuali o altro ancora. (foto: TheBusinessofHackin)

Hewlett Packard Enterprise presenta nuovi sistemi iperconvergenti per le medie aziende

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 16 marzo 2016

HC380_2node_BezelHewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ha presentato una nuova appliance all-in-one che riunisce capacità di calcolo, storage software-defined e virtualizzazione intelligente per aiutare le aziende di medie dimensioni e le filiali di realtà enterprise a creare macchine virtuali (VM) in soli cinque click. Creata sulla base del server più diffuso al mondo, il sistema HPE ProLiant DL380, la nuova appliance HPE Hyper Converged 380 (HC 380) consente alle aziende di completare il processo di trasformazione in un’infrastruttura ibrida, grazie ad una semplificazione delle operazioni IT e ad una riduzione dei costi complessivi.Il mercato iperconvergente continua a crescere a ritmo sostenuto, tanto che si prevede possa raggiungere un giro d’affari di 5 miliardi di dollari entro il 20191. Questa crescita è alimentata dalla continua richiesta di un approccio ai server virtuali, ai desktop virtuali e alle infrastrutture cloud ibride che sia economicamente più conveniente e, al tempo stesso, ottimizzato per l’operatività. Ciononostante, i clienti diffidano dall’introdurre nuovi silos che possano limitare la flessibilità dei nuovi business. “Le aziende di medie dimensioni e le filiali delle grandi imprese si trovano ad affrontare la sfida di restare competitive su scala enterprise avvalendosi tuttavia di risorse decisamente minori”, ha dichiarato Ric Lewis, senior vice president e general manager, Converged Datacenter Infrastructure di HPE. “Con l’appliance HC 380 queste realtà potranno ora disporre di un distributore automatico di VM che permetterà loro di portare a termine i propri processi con la velocità del cloud”.
HPE mette inoltre a disposizione un unico punto di contatto con system assurance e un’assistenza attiva a livello mondiale per l’hardware, il software e il cloud privato HPE, nonché per gli ambienti VMware. Gli esperti HPE sono sempre pronti a intervenire per fornire una risposta rapida su base 24/7, aiutando i clienti ad adottare e concretizzare rapidamente i vantaggi del sistema HC 380.
Il sistema HC 380 sarà disponibile a partire dal 31 marzo 2016; i prezzi saranno comunicati al momento del rilascio. (foto: HC380_2node_Bezel)

Evolving Enterprise Applications

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 14 luglio 2009

London. When capital is in short supply the pressure to optimise existing resources and assets intensifies. In the IT space, enterprise applications such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) are prime targets. A new report by Europe’s leading IT research and advisory organisation Butler Group, points to the strategic importance of these applications in terms of running businesses efficiently and effectively, and how changes in the way they are architected, delivered, and used are altering the entire application value proposition and lifecycle. Titled “Evolving Enterprise Applications”, the report says there is a tendency to focus on cutting costs. It argues that cost reduction and value generation are two sides of the same bottom line so should be tackled together as part of a unified strategy with savings in one area being used to fund smart investments in another.  Technology changes such as the move to service oriented architecture (SOA) that brings modularity and therefore technical and business agility, increased use of business process management (BPM) capabilities to enable enterprise-wide process standardisation, embedded business intelligence (BI) for actionable insight, and participatory Web 2.0-type technologies for collaboration and real time interaction, all play a part in opening enterprise applications up, changing the way they are used, and enabling them to be used for more. Each technology would be so much less without the enterprise application DNA structure. However, for this transformation to be effective, closer alignment between business and IT is a prerequisite. Maintaining the value of existing assets can be achieved through internal optimisation – opting for standardization over customisation, general license and user housekeeping, upgrade and maintenance strategies, and so on – which in addition to reducing operational costs will improve operational efficiency with minimal investment and prevent investments falling into the application equivalent of negative equity. Yet, strategic investment in application extensions at the micro level is also a requirement: for example investing in functionality that reduces waste in production planning by a few percentage points can deliver substantial direct financial returns. “Existing implementations are the perfect platform to deliver these sorts of micro-based incremental benefits, rapidly, with minimal risk and in a cost efficient manner,” says Eager. The economic climate has highlighted the need for business agility and as agility is ultimately enabled by the supporting IT and application infrastructure, the situation is playing well to the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) movement. This alternative delivery method offers flexibility and cost efficiency, providing the essentials to enable organisations to bring about change in the way they carry out their business. With the advent of development platforms SaaS no longer means having to take what you are given, and with an architecture built for the Web and for integration, it provides a valuable adjunct toorganisations looking for application technology to support business
