What's Wrong With Enterprise Applications, And What Are Vendors Doing About It?


With increased competition, deregulation, globalization, and mergers & acquisition activity, enterprise software buyers realize that product architecture plays a key role in how quickly vendors can implement, maintain, expand/customize, and integrate their products. Many in the enterprise applications vendors' community recognize that these are unmet realities and are attempting to offer solutions that will deal with them. While it is not practical to look at every strategy and every vendor's nuance, this note looks at some important examples representing distinct strategic approaches.

Network Security Best Practices: Competitive Analysis


When it comes to security architecture, choosing a system that’s scalable and applicable to a broad set of security needs is a wise move. New security services for Internet protocol (IP) networks are emerging that enable new levels of scalability and manageability—while remaining completely transparent to the network. By applying this type of system, you build an optimal framework for future security applications.
