Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is the backbone of modern manufacturing information systems, enabling the digital transformation that’s changing operations and customer expectations. As the movement toward a digital workplace evolves, your ERP system must keep pace.

Your business is changing. As a finance leader, you know that accounting is a labour-intensive, costly process where
systems often don’t allow for expedient exception handling and many days are fraught with difficulty in matching
invoices to other databases for reconciliation. Like most companies, you know where you want to go but may not have
infrastructure or internal expertise to handle electronic fund transfers, credit card payments or cheque processing— all
the pieces required to make your vision for an efficient, integrated operation a reality.

MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
What do these market-defining trends have in common?
· Analytics for all
· Analytics as competitive differentiator
· Internet of Things
· Artificial intelligence/Machine learning/Cognitive computing
· Real-time analytics/event management
They all rely on data – timely, accurate data delivered within an insightful context – to deliver value. The question is: who in the enterprise is most qualified and prepared to help deliver on the vision and values of the data-driven enterprise?
It’s going to take a special type of professional to deliver that value to enterprises. Organizations are seeking professionals to step forward and take the lead, provide guidance and lend expertise to move into the brave new world of digital. The move to digital and all that it entails – sophisticated data analytics, online customer engagement and digital process efficiency – requires, above all, the skills and knowledge associated with handling data and turning it into insights.

Applications underpin today’s cloud and digital transformation initiatives. As a result, it’s imperative for modern IT organizations to implement a holistic, expert approach to managing applications for maximum performance and optimal business execution. Read this insights paper from ESG and Riverbed to discover: How performance management expertise drives critical business outcomes. Why mature organizations are better equipped to embrace DevOps and other modern IT practices. What tools, factors, and behaviors correlate to expert performance management practices.
Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and
new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various
manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of
security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well.
Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years
consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat
detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the
security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not
a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre

Zowel publieke als particuliere organisaties erkennen dat het levenscyclusbeheer van de pc ingewikkelder en duurder wordt naarmate de verscheidenheid van pc-apparaten en werkstijlen van werknemers toeneemt. Om optimaal productief te zijn hebben verschillende groepen medewerkers verschillende behoeften op het gebied van hardware, software en configuratie voor eindgebruikers. Terwijl IT-afdelingen een breder scala aan technologie voor een steeds meer verspreid en mobieler personeel willen bieden en ondersteunen, met behoud van zo min mogelijk verstoring voor de eindgebruiker, moeten ze ook aan de kosten denken. Het consolideren van processen en het inroepen van de hulp van een leverancier, zoals Dell, kan de kosten verminderen en expertise bieden voor betere werking van pc-levenscyclusbeheer.

Les organisations publiques et privées reconnaissent que la gestion du cycle de vie des PC devient plus complexe et coûteuse, à mesure que les appareils et les modes de travail des collaborateurs se diversifient. Pour être pleinement productifs, différents groupes de collaborateurs ont des besoins différents en matériel, logiciels et configuration de périphériques. Si les départements IT cherchent à fournir et à prendre en charge un large éventail de technologies pour un personnel de plus en plus dispersé et mobile, tout en assurant une faible interruption de l’activité des utilisateurs, il ne faut pas oublier qu’ils sont soumis à une pression considérable en matière de coûts. À ce titre, consolider les processus et faire appel à un partenaire fournisseur tel que Dell réduit les coûts et donne accès à l’expertise nécessaire pour améliorer les opérations de gestion du cycle de vie des PC.
