Leverage the Power of Agile Development

Many organizations are seeing the need for change at a faster rate and with more consistent results. This balancing act is especially challenging in enterprise organizations. To succeed, enterprises must be able to rapidly change the way they create and deliver value to their customers. That means improving how they develop software and systems. The more complex, the more important collaboration, innovation, and speed become in ensuring success. As a development methodology, Agile is a major step in that direction, but Agile was developed for small teams, and by itself, does not scale to the needs of the larger enterprises and the systems they create. This whitepaper explains how tools like InQuisient’s IQ Agile Developer can solve that problem, applying the power of Agile in a package that allows your team to connect to all of its data, leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) to ensure success.


Gain Insights into and Control of Your IT Assets

The larger the enterprise, the more IT assets there are to manage. Tracking all of these assets and keeping basic lists up-to-date are enormous, never-ending tasks, prone to human error simply because of the scope. And trying to align asset management with strategic planning is often out of reach because the two systems are so disparate. This whitepaper explains how tools like InQuisient’s IQ Asset Manager will help you to gain valuable insights into and management control of your ‘as-is’ software and hardware IT stack and your ‘to be’ IT portfolio, to identify gaps or overlaps. This capability makes managing your IT assets dramatically more accurate, allowing you to ensure your approved/unapproved lists are actionable.

Analytics: The upside of disruption

In an analytics study, 1,226 respondents worldwide report dramatically higher use of big data and analytics technologies in the past year. This upsurge was spurred by three notable disruptions that besides posing threats to those organizations that don’t act – offer untold opportunities for those that do. They are: the rise of digitized ecosystems; radical technological transformation; and greater capability to know rather than speculate about the future. More than before, organizations see the upside of acting quickly to innovate their business models and analytics strategies, and improve the information infrastructure to support a future view.


IDC Intelligence-Led Security

While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.
