Security 

When your security has been breached it is already to late – precious data and information could have been hacked or stolen, systems could have been corrupted and you depending on the severity of the loss you will almost certainly suffer a financial penalty whether through lost business or substantial fines imposed by regulators.

IBM solutions like AppScan are built with prevention in mind. Threats often exploit weaknesses in the organisation’s systems and applications and with every new system or public facing site launched the threat only increases. AppScan automatically scans the underlying system code to detect whether or not there are any potential weaknesses and flag them so that the hole can be plugged in existing systems or removed before release of any new developments.

The most high profile and costly of threats nowadays involve data breaches with fines themselves running into hundreds of thousands of pounds and untold amounts in lost revenue and bran damage as customer data is leaked online. IBM Guardium helps protect against the traditional external threats but also the internal threats posed by disgruntled employees and partners that could normally have unquestioned access to your data. Able to scan and highlight any vulnerabilities in the process and monitor and track user activity in real time flagging and blocking any unusual activity Guardium will protect you against data theft and the hefty penalties that come with these breaches.

Social 

Email revolutionized the workplace but there is a new way of working now. Social Business adopts all the speed and cost saving benefits that email brought and builds in new branches of collaboration opening access to the knowledge and experience of the entire organisation, breeding new networks and connections to communicate instantly for a more productive and efficient business.

Social Business solutions are all about people and connectivity. Making the knowledge held by employees more accessible by others in the organisation and in turn allowing them to share their knowledge quickly and easily, formally and informally. IBM Smart Cloud Engage is a software-as-a-service offering incorporating standard tools such as email, calendar, instant messaging and builds on these with new social collaboration functionality.

Nowhere are people and their knowledge more important than in Human Resources. Finding the right person for a role and bringing them on board is a costly process so ensuring that your employees are able to get up and running as quickly as possible and that they remain with the organisation is essential. IBM Kenexa is specifically designed to ease this process, lower recruitment costs and improve the ease of the on-boarding program. As a cloud based offering it helps you hire the right person for the right job and gets them productive from day one.
