Enterprise Architecture: 


An enterprise architecture (EA) is a conceptual blueprint that defines the structure and operation of an organization. The intent of an enterprise architecture is to determine how an organization can most effectively achieve its current and future objectives.






Valuelinnked offers a view of enterprise architecture as containing four points-of-view, called the business perspective, the application perspective, the information perspective, and the technology perspective. The business perspective defines the processes and standards by which the business operates on a day-to-day basis. The application perspective defines the interactions among the processes and standards used by the organization. The information perspective defines and classifies the raw data (such as document files, databases, images, presentations, and spreadsheets) that the organization requires in order to efficiently operate. The technology perspective defines the hardware, operating systems, programming, and networking solutions used by the organization.





We believe that the purported advantages of having an enterprise architecture include improved decision making, improved adaptability to changing demands or market conditions, elimination of inefficient and redundant processes, optimization of the use of organizational assets, and minimization of employee turnover.


The framework for our Enterprise solution is

Enterprise Security:


Enterprise information security architecture (EISA) is the practice of applying a comprehensive and rigorous method for describing a current and/or future structure and behavior for an organization's security processes, information security systems, personnel and organizational sub-units, so that they align with the organization's core goals and strategic direction. Although often associated strictly with information security technology, it relates more broadly to the security practice of business optimization in that it addresses business security architecture, performance management and security process architecture as well.

Enterprise information security architecture is becoming a common practice within the financial institutes around the globe. The primary purpose of creating an enterprise information security architecture is to ensure that business strategy and IT security are aligned. As such, enterprise information security architecture allows traceability from the business strategy down to the underlying technology.

Cloud Computing:



Cloud solutions and services offer compelling economic advantages while solving some of the biggest business and technology challenges that organizations face today:

They help enterprises IT shift spending from capital expenses (CapEx) to operating expenses (OpEx), share cloud solutions assets, and provide dynamic, on-demand delivery of services.

They help service providers with flexible new business models for launching and monetizing scalable services more rapidly and efficiently regardless of geography or size of business.



What You Need To Consider with Cloud Solutions?

The first challenge when entering the "world of many clouds" is to decide which cloud solutions model is right for you and how best to connect with other cloud solutions to achieve your cloud's full potential. There are a number of considerations when adopting cloud solutions:

  • Time to market: Many businesses find that the time to staff with cloud expertise and the availability of cloud talent are major inhibitors to a timely, successful cloud solutions deployment.
  • User experience: Especially for applications such as collaboration and video, you need to provide a highly secure, consistent experience across delivery models and devices.
  • Performance, agility, and efficiency: You need a wide variety of innovative vendors that can provide and deploy cloud solutions to integrate with and support your chosen cloud solutions model. 



It is important to carefully evaluate your technology choices in order to deploy cloud solutions effectively. Whether you are building or consuming services from private, public, or hybrid clouds, Cisco delivers all the necessary cloud solutions elements.

BigData:


Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is BigData.



BigData spans three dimensions: Volume, Velocity and Variety.


Volume

  • Enterprises are awash with ever-growing data of all types, easily amassing terabytes—even petabytes—of information.
  • Turn 12 terabytes of Tweets created each day into improved product sentiment analysis
  • Convert 350 billion annual meter readings to better predict power consumption

Velocity: 

  • Sometimes 2 minutes is too late. For time-sensitive processes such as catching fraud, big data must be used as it streams into your enterprise in order to maximize its value.
  • Scrutinize 5 million trade events created each day to identify potential fraud
  • Analyze 500 million daily call detail records in real-time to predict customer churn faster

Variety: 

  • Big data is any type of data - structured and unstructured data such as text, sensor data, audio, video, click streams, log files and more. New insights are found when analyzing these data types together.
  • Monitor 100’s of live video feeds from surveillance cameras to target points of interest
  • Exploit the 80% data growth in images, video and documents to improve customer satisfaction.

Big data is more than simply a matter of size; it is an opportunity to find insights in new and emerging types of data and content, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that were previously considered beyond your reach. Until now, there was no practical way to harvest this opportunity. Today, IBM’s platform for big data uses state of the art technologies including patented advanced analytics to open the door to a world of possibilities.

Big data analytics is the process of examining large amounts of data of a variety of types (big data) to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations and other useful information. Such information can provide competitive advantages over rival organizations and result in business benefits, such as more effective marketing and increased revenue.


At valuelinked the primary goal of big data analytics is to help companies make better business decisions by enabling data scientists and other users to analyze huge volumes of transaction data as well as other data sources that may be left untapped by conventional business intelligence(BI) programs. These other data sources may include Web server logs and Internet clickstream data, social media activity reports, mobile-phone call detail records and information captured by sensors. Some people exclusively associate big data and big data analytics with unstructured data of that sort, but we consider transactions and other structured data to be valid forms of big data.

















Enterprise Mobility:



Enterprise mobility is the trend toward a shift in work habits, with more employees working out of the office and using mobile devices and cloud services to perform business tasks. The term refers not only to mobile workers and mobile devices, but also to the mobility of corporate data. An employee may upload a corporate presentation from his or her desktop PC to a cloud storage service, then access it from a personal iPad to show at a client site, for example.


Enterprise mobility can improve employee productivity, but it also creates security risks. Enterprise mobility management products, such as data loss prevention technologies, are available to help IT departments address these risks. A strong acceptable use policy for employees can also contribute to a successful enterprise mobility strategy.


Following are the reasons for enterprise mobility to be the top of the list of business and IT priorities.

  • The adoption of smartphones and tablets for private use
  • The expectation that private devices should be able to be used in the workplace
  • To connect to enterprise systems








Here are a number of key areas where Valuelinked will help your company when creating mobility strategies and policies:


Bring your own device (BYOD)


The issue of having to support a growing number of mobile platforms and device formats has propelled BYOD initiatives in to the forefront of business and IT strategy; often with senior business executives requesting that they use their own personal mobile devices to access corporate systems, content and data.

Device management and security are two areas that many organizations are looking in to to support BYOD policies.


Consumerization of IT and applications


With the rapid adoption of smartphones and tablets for personal use, has been the rise in popularity of consumer-based mobile applications.  These applications however, are beginning to have a fundamental impact in the way that business users who want to use smartphones or tablets for business purposes are beginning to perceive the way that mobile enterprise applications should look and behave.It is no longer appropriate to deliver a basic mobile view for mobile business users, if the objective is to boost the productivity of users when they are out of the office and using mobile devices to work.


Mobile security and Identity Management


Most organizations and certainly all analysts agree that enterprise mobile solutions will not be widely deployed unless they can be shown to be secure.  That is why Azurati has made it its mission to embed security features at every level of the SharePoint2Go and ASAP solutions.


Native Apps vs Mobile Web Apps

In the enterprise space, many leading analysts are now advising that mobile applications should be developed as Mobile Web Apps, as opposed to Native Mobile Apps (applications that one would normally purchase individually and download from an App Store).


Some of the reasons for this are:

  • Multi-platform and device support as standard
  • Easier purchase and distribution of Mobile platform to enterprise users
  • User administration of enterprise mobile users
  • Zero footprint - no cached data left on device

SharePoint2Go has been developed as a Mobile Web App, but is able to exploit device features, like GPS and placing a button/icon on the device home screen. Mobile UI Navigation and ease of use are central to getting business users to use and adopt mobile devices to access enterprise systems.  Providing poorly designed user interfaces where users need to resize the screen to work will not encourage users to use the mobile solution or to work productively when using a mobile device. 




Social Media and Collaboration:


Social media monitoring (also referred to as buzz monitoring, blog mining, and by some just as social media research) refers to research based on listening to the discourse of the web, especially social media, and usually refers to the use of automated tools to process that discourse, typically looking at thousands or millions of conversations. Social media monitoring can be passive, for example listening to people to find out what interests them, or it can be active, searching for references to a specific brand, campaign, or action.



Commercial Social Media Monitoring:


Although there are some free social media tools, most of these only skim the discourse of the web. In order to conduct serious research it is necessary to either develop tools or to use one of the many commercial services, such as Radian6, Lithium, or Synthesio.


At Valuelinked the process of social media monitoring starts by building a corpus, a body of text to analyse. A corpus is built by utilising spiders and bots to collect relevant parts of social media and the wider web, where part of the skill is in defining ‘relevant’. Although the available tools are increasingly powerful, they do have limitations, in particular not all of the web is accessible (especially large parts of Facebook) and it is often impossible to determine the geographic location of somebody posting a comment.

Before the data can be analysed it needs to be cleaned. Data that originates from the client, from its various agencies, and from bots needs to be removed.  We at valuelinked believe that one of the reasons for conducting a project is to monitor the launch of some new campaign, messages originating from the media, PR, and marketing agencies, Thus it need to be removed from the corpus. Once the corpus has been created the analysis takes place and can include one or more of the following: counts, trends, sentiment, and influence.


Counts

The simplest form of analysis is to count how often key words or terms occur, sometimes extending this to take words in particular contexts. In terms of depth, simple counts are fairly superficial, although they have been shown to be of interest in some situations, for example several people have reported success in mapping the frequency of politicians being mentioned and their success in elections. Google have shown success in mapping diseases by counting the terms that people type into search engines, to identify possible incidences of flue and more recently dengue fever.

Trends

In many ways trends is simply an extension of counting, looking at whether a term is becoming more used or less used, and to see if it can be linked to other phenomena. Looking at whether a term is trending on Twitter has become a key component in reputation management, and brands look to see if they can identify trends, in social media, associated with their campaign launches.

Sentiment Analysis

Sentiment analysis is either ‘the’ core benefit of social media monitoring or the snake oil of 2011, depending on who you talk to. The idea behind sentiment analysis is very straightforward, rather than just count how often a key word or phrase is used (for example a brand name), sentiment analysis measures how many times it is said in a positive, neutral, or negative way. The data collected by the commercial systems are typically too large to code by hand, so one of the following approaches is followed:

  • Automated techniques, applying a variety of approaches and algorithms.
  • Manually coding a sample of the database.
  • Coding some of the data manually to allow software to ‘learn’ how to code the rest.

The two key disputes about sentiment analysis relate to how accurate the automated software is and about how accurate it needs to be. A study conducted by UK agency Freshminds in 2010 concluded that the high figures quoted by the systems could be largely due to the preponderance of neutral comments (which often run at 70%). When Freshminds looked at just those posts classed as positive and negative they found that the validity of the systems was often below 50% (using the results of manual coding exercise as their criterion).


However, when considering the accuracy of automated systems it is necessary to note that different manual coders produce different results. As Annie Pettit has said, if manual coders are 80% accurate and automated systems are 70% accurate, then we will want to use the automated systems some of the time because of the volumes of information they can process.

Influence and Identification

One of the key features of the tools used for social media monitoring is that, in most cases, they are not designed specifically for market research, they are equally, or perhaps more specifically, designed for marketing. As well as identify key words and phrases the systems can find who is saying what, allowing them to be targeted for marketing, viral leads, and word of mouth advocacy.


This power to find out who is saying what, who is listening to whom, and who appears to have influence, is a two-fold challenge for market research. Firstly, this power risks removing the anonymity of the people being researched, and secondly if market researchers are not prepared to be involved in uses such as intervention and response marketing they may find themselves marginalised in the whole area of social media monitoring.

The business of social media monitoring

The social media monitoring platforms burst on the scene a few years ago with a fanfare that promised to sweep away traditional research. At Valuelinked we believe  ‘Why ask surveys to a few people, when you can listen to everybody?’ However, the inroads social media monitoring have made so far into market research have been fairly modest.


At valuelinked we ensure Social media monitoring is much less expensive than you expected, we monitor all aspects of the brand brands and terms across a few markets We believe The widely perceived need to use manual coding has increased the credibility of social media monitoring and we do that at a reasonable price. We focus on many of the areas where social media monitoring is strong, such as measuring reactions to experiences and advertising, trusted brand and customer satisfaction trackers.However, social media monitoring is establishing a base within market research, and an even bigger one outside. Most brands recognise that they need to monitor what people are saying about them, even if they can’t use that process to replace other research. Our Researchers also demonstrates how social media monitoring can be combined with traditional research, using the social media listening to identify topics, issues, and even potential scales, and then use conventional research to create a representative research picture. Our team is well versed with different tools like Viralheat, Spredfast, Sysomos,Sprout Social,UberVU to ensure a wider coverage on the various social media platforms.

Software Defined Networks:


Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to networking in which control isdecoupled from hardware and given to a software application called a controller.When a packet arrives at a switch in a conventional network, rules built into the switch's proprietary firmware tell the switch where to forward the packet. The switch sends everypacket going to the same destination along the same path -- and treats all the packets the exact same way. In the enterprise, smart switches designed with application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) are sophisticated enough to recognize different types of packets and treat them differently, but such switches can be quite expensive.

In a software-defined network, a network administrator can shape traffic from a centralized control console without having to touch individual switches. The administrator can change any network switch's rules when necessary -- prioritizing, de-prioritizing or even blocking specific types of packets with a very granular level of control. This is especially helpful in acloud computing multi-tenant architecture because it allows the administrator to manage traffic loads in a flexible and more efficient manner. Essentially, this allows the administrator to use less expensive, commodity switches and have more control over network traffic flow than ever before.

It's no longer just a buzzword. SDN is quickly becoming an important strategy in addressing the network needs companies have right now. And ValueLinked Networks is ready to help you get down to business. Get a front row seat as they lay out the basics, providing a clear pathway for understanding SDN and the impact it can have on your network and your business, including:

  • Defining SDN and how to begin
  • The six principles that define SDN and the benefits they deliver
  • The four steps to centralizing management for SDN
  • A new model of licensing as innovative as the technology


The next big transition in networking is upon us. Watch "SDN Decoded" and learn how our plan for SDN can help you build the best network for your needs.


ValueLinked Software Defined Cloud Networking (SDCN), combines the principles that have made cloud computing the unstoppable force that it is: automation, self service provisioning, and linear scaling of both performance and economics coupled with the recent trend in Software Defined Networking that delivers: network virtualization, custom programmability, simplified architectures, and more realistic price points to the table. This combination creates a best-in-class software foundation for maximizing the value of the network to both the enterprise and service provider data center: a new architecture for the most mission-critical location within the IT infrastructure that simplifies management and provisioning, speeds up service delivery, lowers costs and creates opportunities for competitive differentiation, while putting control and visibility back in the hands of the network and systems administrators.




Quality Assurance:



Test Strategy and Consulting:

Valuelinked encompasses QA  Consulting,  Test  Management  and  Strategy  offerings. In QA  Consulting,  we  objectively  assess  if  QA  processes,  tools  and frameworks  being implemented  by  an  organization  are  delivering  products  and  applications  of  the  highest quality.  We  identify  and  prioritize  gaps  in  processes 

and  make  recommendations  covering test  methodologies,  automation  strategy,  test  management  tools,  metrics,  and  training requirements.  QA  consulting  services 

typically  span  multiple  products,  applications,  and projects.  A  common  scenario  in  which  this  service  is  provided  to  customers  is  when  they need an independent third party assessment of their overall QA organization’s maturity.


Our Test  Management and Strategy offering  is  customized  for  specific  products  and applications,  and  clearly  outlines  a  detailed  execution  plan  covering  quality 

objectives  and deliverables  corresponding  to  every  milestone  in  the  SDLC,  resource  budgeting,  timelines and  release  criteria,  test  automation  strategy  and  tool 

selection.  Customers  typically  avail this  service  when  there  is  insufficient  test  management  bandwidth  in  the  organization  for  a specific  product  being  developed or  maintained.  We  have  created  Test  Strategies  for  new products and applications and also for Version 2.0 products by incorporating feedback from the field, service requests, issues found during the sustenance engineering phase etc.


When organizations do not invest in a solid test strategy, several important quality attributes and feature areas, some of which are important to the end users, are overlooked. It is typically late  and  expensive  to  incorporate  changes  to  the  requirements,  architecture  and  design, feature  specs,  coding  standards  etc.  A well-defined  test strategy  can  help  identify  quality issues upstream and help reduce the overall cost of quality.



Test Automation:


Software failures can put your business at risk and affect your credibility in the eyes of your customers and stakeholders.Value  Linked  Functional  Testing  delivers  a  complete  automated  testing  solution  for functional,  graphical  user  interface,  and  regression  testing  that  helps  you  reduce  the  risks of application failures. This software testing solution enables your QA team to identify and correct  defects  across  a  wide  breath  of  application  environments,  data  sets  and  business processes.  You  can  also  create  sophisticated  test  suites  with  minimal  training  and  easily perform regression testing in constantly changing environments. This powerful combination of functional testing tools allows you to conduct both manual and automated testing for both Graphical User Interface (GUI) -based applications and non GUI-based services.


Performance Automation:


Customers  now-a-days  insist  on  applications  being  fast,  relevant,  easy  to  use,  aesthetically pleasing,  and  satisfying.  With  more  applications  competing  for 

screen  space  and  mind space,  organizations  want  to  make  sure  that  their  applications  are  optimized  to  deliver  the experience their users demand.As  organizations continue  to  drive  more  customers  to  their  websites  applications,  the increased  traffic  can  push  the  application  architecture's  performance  over  a  precipice. Performance  issues  are  traditionally  difficult  to  identify  before  an  application  is  launched. When detected after launch, it often involves costly remedial work. CSC tests new systems in the development stage and provides practical corrective measures to ensure that problems are rectified at an earlier stage by using advanced testing services and tools.


Value  Linked  maintains  a  Testing  Center  of  Excellence  (TCoE)  for  performance  testing services  with  highly  trained  personnel  and  specialized  infrastructure. ValueLinked  builds customized  performance  testing  solutions  for  clients  using  our  remote  web  load  testing infrastructure  and  data  centers  spread  across  the  US and  other  global  locations.  The highly  customizable  performance  tests  help  customers  quickly  verify  changes  prior  to implementation.


Benefits of Performance Testing:

Network  Security  Assessment  is  a  comprehensive  review  of  an organization's  network. CSC’s service here includes both the external infrastructure as well as the corporate network. Based  on  the  vulnerabilities  found,  the  security posture  of  the  customer's  network  is determined and reported.CSC  also  performs  functional testing  of  security  products  to  determine  the  vulnerable areas  of  the product.  CSC  helps  to  identify  scenarios  where  the  application  fails,  behaves abnormally and can withstand the attack/exploit.

Based  on  the  vulnerabilities  found,  the  security  posture  of  the  customer's  network  is determined and reported.

The third service is Product Security Testing, which has the capability to break the security mechanism built into the product, identifying scenarios where the application fails, behaves abnormally and can withstand the attack/exploit.


Compatibility Testing:

Solution has considerable expertise in creating test suites and running software Compatibility and Interoperability tests across various software and hardware platforms. We host a state of the art certification program for top software vendors in order to make sure that applications integrate  properly  with  their  software  products.  We  deliver  this  testing  via  an  on-demand basis.

Compatibility  testing  certifies  that  your  product  operates  as  expected  with  many  types  of software,  hardware,  and  network  configurations.  To assess  its  being compatible  with  the fundamental environment, compatibility testing is conducted on the application.We can test your application for compatibility with:

  • Operating Systems (UNIX, Windows, MACs, Linux, etc.)
  • Databases (Oracle, Sybase, DB2, etc.)
  • Networking hardware and Hardware Platform (Firewalls, Proxies, etc.)
  • Compatibility of peripheral devices like Printer, DVD drive, etc.
  • Other System Software (Web server, Application Server, etc.)
  • Browser compatibility (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Netscape, etc.)
  • Additional software or hardware as required.

Compatibility and Interoperability Testing verifies that  the software being tested operates as intended along with other hardware and software. Consequently this test performs a crucial task, especially if your software or website supports various platforms with various hardware and software components.

Our Compatibility and Interoperability Testing determine the following:
