Tool Recommendation

Tool Recommendation
Do anyone of you use Workato or another light weight Integration tool in addition to Mulesoft? Mule plays an important role but is engineering heavy and there are several use cases which require simpler and faster integrations. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated!

Top Answer : We are using Jitterbit with Salesforce. It does the trick at a lighter scale. I’m sure it can handle the simple - less sure about the faster part.

What's a greater concern for returning to the office? Comment how you are prioritizing...

Top Answer : The majority of our focus is definitely on the human factors as the technical factors are mostly related to things we had to solve as we went distributed.  We will need some additional technical stuff to support the human factors (eg. scheduling software to limit the # of people in the office at the same time) but solving the human factors of helping people to feel comfortable, ensuring that safety precautions are being followed, etc... are much harder and why it will be a while before we go back.

Do you think more integrated tools are required to be able to manage and secure data within the content stores that you utilize?

Top Answer : I think there's a huge scope for improvement. My immediate reaction when I speak about any of these larger solutions we already own is, “Why do I need to look elsewhere for this? Why can't Microsoft Office 365 (for example), just do this for us?” that will be great. I think vendors are gearing up to a lot of these integrated technologies as we've seen in the recent past. Especially for companies like us, we would love to adopt, adapt and improve on that.

When you think about how deeply you embed a cloud access security broker (CASB) system into your infrastructure, is there skepticism or optimism?

Top Answer : I think, with any utility, you'd have some amount of skepticism, but it's a necessary thing at this point. So I'm pretty optimistic about our CASB system. It's working pretty well for us, and it's definitely one of those things where I know I feel better having something, even if it's not perfect and still evolving. The data I'm getting from it is really important, and I'm able to take that data and use that for things like conditional access. The SaaS tool sprawl is significant, pushing 200 apps at least. We have to have something in place now that most of the data is not on the endpoint and it's all in an app somewhere.

What are the biggest challenges to selecting and deploying an endpoint management system?

Top Answer : Most of our problems with deploying endpoint management solutions aren't technical, they're process or politics-oriented. I think everyone has a healthy dose of suspicion about why something's being put on their machine or what it does. For us, it is important to be able to be really candid and let people know, "Here is the tool, here is what the tool does. This is why we're putting it out there. This is what it's protecting." Getting public buy-in from key stakeholders, whether they're high-level executives or others, is also critical when it comes to championing your tool. Actually pushing out a tool, that's pretty much table stakes at this point, getting that buy-in from everyone, and, having that level of comfort as to why this tool is being deployed is key. I think those are the biggest hurdles, but beyond that there are also some considerations for anyone who's in a very geographically diverse company now. The rules and regulations around what I can put on an endpoint in the United States can be very different from what I can put on one in Europe. So you have to be very cognizant of where your employee base is as well, especially now as the perimeter is expanding. People are working from everywhere and there's a lot of different regulations you have to be aware of. Working with your vendors to understand and make sure that they understand these variations is helpful too.
