Aberdeen Group Publishes IT Security and Enterprise Applications Research

Research Examines Data Center Security, SME IT Security, Line-of-Business ERP Role, Small Business ERP

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Security and Enterprise Applications research practices.

In "Evolving Your Datacenter? Evolve Your Datacenter Security," written by Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for IT Security, describes how enterprise datacenters are evolving -- which means that datacenter security should be evolving, too. This report provides examples of how key security technologies and services -- most of which are already very familiar from their traditional use in a physical, on-premise context -- are being re-architected by leading solution providers to work well across a broad range of physical and virtual datacenter deployment scenarios.

"Security for the Small and Mid-Sized Business - Recommendations for 2013," also written by Derek Brink, describes how small and mid-size businesses (SMBs) that are taking advantage of the compelling benefits of the transformations in IT infrastructure should also be re-thinking how they deal with the associated vulnerabilities, threats and risks. Like all organizations, SMBs should move beyond traditional signature-based approaches (i.e., anti-virus and firewalls) and adopt a more comprehensive, defense-in-depth approach to protecting their endpoints, servers, networks, applications and data. Specifically, email security, web security and secure file sharing should be considered foundational security capabilities for every small and mid-sized business, in addition to anti-virus and firewalls.

"The Line of Business' Role in ERP Success," prepared by Nick Castellina, Research Analyst in the Aberdeen Enterprise Applications research practice, states that as the operational and transactional backbone of a business, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) contains all of the data that is needed for decision-makers to run their business. But those at the top of the organization are not the only employees with data needs. In fact, it is those on the front lines that are most likely to be actively utilizing ERP on a daily basis. The line of business is not only inputting data into ERP, but actively using it to perform tasks and service customers. As such, these employees know best how day-to-day operations are impacted by an ERP solution. Still, some organizations are only making ERP a top-down initiative. This is a mistake; ERP is most successful when it becomes a pervasive part of the organization. Leading organizations are actively involving the line of business throughout the lifecycle of their ERP solution. Additionally, they are more likely to hold the line of business accountable for their ultimate success. This Analyst Insight, based on data from two Aberdeen surveys, illustrates how organizations are involving the line of business in all ERP decisions as well as the capabilities and benefits that are received as a result.

"ERP and the Small Business," prepared by Nick Castellina, Research Analyst in Aberdeen's Enterprise Applications practice, maintains that Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the transactional and operational backbone of a business. As such, the data and capabilities contained within ERP can be used to promote visibility, collaboration, and efficiency; making it essential in the large enterprise. But ERP is not only for the large organization. Smaller organizations can also utilize ERP to scale their business, differentiate themselves from competitors, and compete more effectively. This report illustrates why these organizations have implemented an ERP solution, the capabilities being used, and the direct benefits that small businesses gain from an ERP solution.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
