The Data Economy Report: 2017 Edition

Published By: Pure Storage     Published Date: Oct 09, 2018
Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data has become a significant force for value and revenue creation. Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives. In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E

25 Tips and Tricks For Amazing Customer Service

Published By: Salesforce     Published Date: Nov 09, 2018
The pillars that are driving a superior customer service experience are changing.

Great Mobile Experiences Are Built On Systems Of Engagement

Published By: Salesforce.com     Published Date: Apr 16, 2013
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers. However, mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken website or a screen-scraped application. Rather, mobile is the visible manifestation of a much broader shift to systems of engagement that marry physical context and digital intelligence to deliver service directly into a person's hands. This shift will add value and take cost out of every business service, workflow process, and business application. But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.

The IoT Imperative for Discrete Manufacturers

Published By: SAP EMEA Global     Published Date: Dec 13, 2017
For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.

Making Sense of AI

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Mar 06, 2018
Today's artifical intelligence (AI) solutions are not sentient in the manner popularized in science fiction by scores of self-aware and typically nefarious androids. Even so, the ability to arm such systems with the ability to directly sense and respond to their in situ environment is critical. Why? In the future, our experiences will be smart, intuitive and informed by analytics that are not seen but felt via new business, personal and operational engagement models. Enabling this interaction requires AI applications that can sense, analyze and respond to their environment in an intelligent and interactive manner. Without requiring the end user to write, understand or interpret code. “Sensitive” artificial intelligence enables: • More productive use of expanded (big, often unstructured) information sources • Intuitive man-machine interactions (no code-speak here!) • Adaptive, immersive experiences and environments As frequently touted on the nightly news, AI’s popularity is clear.

New Business Models for Smart Machines

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: May 03, 2018
Before creating new technologies, we must think about how to create the right values to be also able to sell it.

If these existing technologies are assembled properly together and combined with the right business models, there is really good chance to profit from Industry 4.0. This white paper looks into the ways one can profit from Industry 4.0 by differentiating through new business models.

Business Models for Smart Machines

Published By: Schneider Electric     Published Date: Apr 23, 2019
After buzzing Industry 4.0 all over the media by all OT and IT experts, today, a few key concepts seem to unveil the potential that the industry believes is behind Industry 4.0.
