Occupational fraud is not a small issue. On average, a company loses 5% of its revenues to employee financial fraud each year, with the annual median loss at $140,000 and over 20% of companies reporting losses of $1 million or more. The key to keeping a lid on this fraud is identifying the fraud before it takes too much of a bite out of the company’s bottom line, or even further, to put processes and controls in place that automatically audits, monitors, and accepts or rejects transactions that don’t fit an recognized pattern.
The recent economic downturn has created some formidable challenges for the retail banking industry. Fraud and identify theft are on the rise, costing banks big money and raising customer concerns about security.

HCM suite vendors are building out their offerings to address administrative, strategic and operational needs of users in multiple geographies, but solutions still vary.

WAN edge infrastructure is changing rapidly as I&O leaders responsible for networking face dynamic business requirements, including new application architectures and on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I&O leaders can use this research to identify vendors that best fit their requirements. By year-end 2023, more than 90% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) platforms or software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) software/appliances versus traditional routers (up from less than 40% today).
The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
Powerful IT doesn’t have to be complicated. Hyperconvergence puts your entire virtualized infrastructure and advanced data services into one integrated powerhouse.
