To succeed in this new era of customer service, retailers must figure out how to personalize the way they connect with customers. Find out why personalizing your support strategy is crucial for your business — and how to do it.
Banking is rapidly being transformed by one, distinct theme: digital technology.
For those leading the charge, there is no longer a distinction between a business strategy and a technology strategy. There is just strategy driven by technology and the client needs it will evolve to continually meet. In this new world, upgrading existing operations and making legacy systems fit new challenges is not going to be enough. To succeed, banks need to become future-ready, connected enterprises, backed by a new type of technology and operating model that is nimble enough to adapt to new challenges and growth opportunities.
Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.¹
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps. Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.

Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.
In 2018, the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) completed a research survey of 450 cybersecurity, IT, and networking security professionals with knowledge of or responsibility for the policies, processes, and controls used for remote office/branch office (ROBO) security. This report is the summary of ESG's conclusions from the study.
"Cloud applications provide scale and cost benefits over legacy on-premises solutions. With more users going direct-to-internet from any device, the risk increases when users bypass security controls. We can help you reduce this risk across all of your cloud and on-premises applications with a zero-trust strategy that validates devices and domains, not just user credentials.
See why thousands of customers rely on Duo and Cisco Umbrella to reduce the risks of data breaches and improve security. Don’t miss this best-practices discussion focused on the key role DNS and access control play in your zero-trust security strategy.
Attendees will learn how to:

Companies typically begin with a
basic approach to sales tax: figure out the requirements of the state
in which they’re headquartered, register with that state, and start collecting sales tax from customers in that state. That approach may work for a while,
but as your business expands into new states (whether you have a physical presence there or not), the risk of non-compliance with sales tax becomes significant.
Smart finance leaders know they need to have a sales tax
compliance strategy before they start getting notices from state tax authorities.
"The state of chatbots has quickly evolved from a fad to an essential part of corporate strategy. No longer a nascent technology, chatbots have matured into solutions that enterprises across industries are taking seriously. But how do we distinguish a simple chatbot from human-like, AI- driven conversational solutions that we now see businesses adopting?
In this three part series, we will examine what it means to deploy “Conversational A.I.” for the enterprise"
Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
Smart pricing based on a sound strategy is fundamental to the success of your technology business. While you may think you can’t afford to spend time and resources defining and enforcing a pricing strategy, the truth is, you can’t afford not to.

Even one or two margin points have the potential to substantially impact your bottom line. ConnectWise Sell is designed to help guide you and your sales team to greater profitability with easy-to-use price management tools.
Switching to a managed services model where clients pay you a fixed monthly rate to manage their entire IT infrastructure.

If you’re considering becoming a managed service provider (MSP), these six steps can help. As you read through them, keep in mind that the best strategy is to have a strategy.
Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically
transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have
continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and
keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve. Originally
envisioned as an IT-centric tool for enterprise reporting, analytics today
has evolved into a business solution—empowering a range of users
across every line of business, including front-line employees, field
personnel, and executives.
The rise of self-service analytics over the past decade has played a key role in promoting a data-driven mindset
within every business function. However, this practice is limited to a skilled few. The vast majority of business
professionals lack the time, analytical skills, or inclination to conduct their own analyses, and fail to effectively use
analytics on a day-to-day basis. The result? Despite decades of investments, BI adoption at most organizations
remains at 30%.
The failure of e
With trends such as big data, artificial intelligence and IoT dominating
today’s business technology headlines, the buzz around enterprise
mobility (now considered known and familiar) may have lessened, but
its importance has not. Consider its key role in today’s top tech trends,
and then also consider this. According to an Oxford Economics survey
of 500 senior IT executives, CEOs, and other senior managers, 80%
say workers cannot do their jobs effectively without a mobile
device. The same survey shows:
82% say mobile devices are critical to employee productivity
82% say mobile devices are critical to agility and the speed of decision making
76% say mobile devices are critical to customer service and satisfaction
75% say mobile devices are critical to innovation and collaboration
70% say mobile devices are critical to employee satisfaction
and 70% say mobile devices are critical to revenue growth.
The known and familiar now demands a fresh look and focus from
enterprise organizations a
Today, despite massive investments in data, IT infrastructure,
and analytics software, the adoption of analytics continues to lag
behind. In fact, according to Gartner, most organizations fail to hit
the 30% mark. That means that more than 70% of people at most
organizations are going without access to the critical information
they need to perform to the best of their abilities.
What’s stopping organizations from breaking through the 30%
barrier and driving the pervasive adoption of intelligence? Simple.
The majority of existing tools only cater to users who are naturally
analytically inclined—the analysts, data scientists, and architects
of the world. The other 70%—the people making the operational
decisions daily within a business—simply lack the time, skill, or
desire to seek out data and intelligence on their own.
HyperIntelligence helps organizations operationalize their
existing investments and arm everyone across the organization
