With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.

Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever. As a result, companies that for years have taken a traditional approach to managing initiatives are moving rapidly to implement agile business practices. And they’re seeing results, in the form of improved quality, faster delivery of value, reduced development costs and increased customer satisfaction. But this transition also creates new challenges and responsibilities for the project management office (PMO). In fact, the success of the transformation often hinges on the PMO’s ability to expand the underlying concepts of the agile development methodology into a companywide ethos¬—a concept known as business agility.

For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise. A corporate venture capital fund for investing in outside startups can help a company see, understand, and respond rapidly to changes in the business landscape. But the parent company’s processes tend to bog down these funds.

In the digital economy, big IT budgets, lots of brick sand mortar and an established market presence are no longer at the foundation of a competitive advantage. What matters now is the agility and speed to ensure that customer centricity is supported as an overriding priority of business operations and decision making. Game-changing ideas are developing and competitive threats are emerging at a rapid and unpredictable pace. The resulting digital disruption is not just occurring at the margins or within isolated pockets of industry and commerce. It’s the new normal and its consequences are far reaching. The essential question for every organization in every sector is simply: Will we be the disruptor or will we allow ourselves to be the disrupted?

Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak.
