Digital transformation (DX) continues to headline business initiatives as companies look to remain competitive in the rapidly changing IT landscape. Organizations are increasingly investing in and implementing next-generation applications and architectures such as software-defined IT and hybrid IT to drive higher levels of efficiency and agility. These modern technologies and architectures, however, also require organizations to evolve their underlying infrastructure to support new capabilities and demands.
Recent strength in the server market, which continues to operate in a marketwide refresh cycle, illustrates the growing demand for new infrastructure. 1Q18 marked the server market's fifth consecutive quarter of both shipment and revenue growth and represented a fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year ASP growth, as customers continue to replace aging server infrastructure with more powerful and efficient systems that leverage the latest platform developments from processor supp
This is an at-a-glance guide to the key innovation trends in fleet management that leverage location data to improve last-mile efficiency and road safety. Presented to you by HERE, one of the world’s leading location platforms in 2018.

Coding errors are common--and costly. There were $2.91B in OIG investigative recoveries for FY18 alone. Hospitals need to catch coding errors prior to billing, or risk heavy fines, legal issues and even a damaged reputation. What if you could catch coding errors prior to billing? PwC SMART increases the efficiency and effectiveness of inpatient and outpatient coding quality evaluation process, and enables a mechanism for quality and compliance review. See how SMART led to $1.8M in net reimbursement impact for a network of independent healthcare providers in New Jersey, and learn more about the inpatient and outpatient solutions.
When it comes to worker safety, efficiency and production, nothing is
faster than right now. Organizations across various energy segments —
oil, gas, petrochemical, electric utilities, water utilities and mining — are
currently juggling a mix of communications solution devices and are
hindered by gaps in coverage, poor battery life and fragile equipment
that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions. The power of
now puts instant communications at your workers’ fingertips — because
when communication slows, operation slows.
Citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, clean running
water and lights that turn on when they flip the switch. Meeting these
expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for
energy workers day-in and day-out. So workers can communicate safely
in hazardous environments. So precious resources are not wasted and
efficient operations are maintained. So energy companies can continue
to exceed expectations.
"Whether your organization is going all in on cloud or they have a more conservative approach, the undeniable reality is that workloads are moving to the cloud at warp speed. And with many IT leaders concerned that the complexity of the network hampers their organization's ability to migrate apps to the cloud, it's up to you to transform the network to meet the new demands.
Read this e-book to learn how a unified app-delivery strategy can help you:
- Increase IT efficiency
- Reduce security risks
- Free IT staff to focus on more strategic initiatives"
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.
The future of business process management lies in Robotic Process Automation. This report covers the benefits of the technology and other business process optimization approaches that Best-in-Class organizations take to improve efficiency.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

Automation is already pervasive in our lives—from tried-and-true mechanized assembly lines to the dawn of self-driving cars. But how can you use advanced forms of automation to improve your business processes?
Download this starter guide for a detailed look at robotic process automation (RPA), a type of automation that can help you:
Also explore the definition and features of RPA, as well as the types of automation software.
After evaluating all the options on the market, one company chose Automation Anywhere RPA to start its digital transformation journey and automate its invoice processing, help desk, and internal financial reporting processes. The company achieved its initial goals—and more. It got the first initiative—automating accounts payable—up and running in less than 6 months, and increased the efficiency of the operation by 300%.

Bots automate hundreds of processes and greatly increasing back office efficiency, saving Bancolombia a significant amount of time servicing customers. This has led to an increase in CSAT numbers and has created additional revenue streams.
Although data and analytics are highlighted throughout the popular press as well as in trade publications, too many managers think the value of this data processing is limited to a few numerically intensive fields such as science and finance. In fact, big data and the insights that emerge from analyzing it will transform every industry, from “precision farming” to manufacturing and construction. Governments must also be alert to the value of data and analytics as the enabler for smart cities. Institutions that master available data will leap ahead of their less statistically adept competitors through many advantages: finding hidden opportunities for efficiency, using data to become more responsive to clients, and developing entirely new and unanticipated product lines. The average time spent by most companies on the S&P 500 Index has decreased from an average of 60 to 70 years to only 22 years. There are winners and losers in the changes that come with the evolution of both technology
