A New Breed of Servers for Digital Transformation

Published By: Group M_IBM Q418     Published Date: Sep 10, 2018
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile, social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does. From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e

A Practical Guide to Transform Manufacturing Operations with Smart Pull

Published By: Dassault Systèmes     Published Date: Jun 19, 2018
This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring. The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take. In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better

Make Faster and More Precise Decisions in a Real-Time World

Published By: AWS     Published Date: May 18, 2018
We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time. Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now. Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data

Eliminate EDA Workflow Bottlenecks

Published By: Pure Storage     Published Date: Oct 09, 2017
Semiconductors run and connect today’s technology-driven world, powering all the electronic systems and products around us. Critical to communication, entertainment, work, medical diagnoses, travel, socializing, and making new discoveries, these specialized chips are ubiquitous. And chip designs grow ever more sophisticated in order to power new generations of devices, computers, the Internet, and the cloud. To enable new applications and use cases – like the Internet of Things – semiconductor vendors have continually pushed the boundaries of their designs to accommodate new fabrication processes that make chips smaller, more power efficient (to make personal devices last longer), and able to pack more gates into smaller dies (to make them more powerful).

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 28, 2016
To succeed today, organizations need to take advantage of information technology in every area of their business. Talent acquisition is no exception. Robust, reliable technology can help recruiters more effectively engage with candidates. According to Aberdeen Group, the user experience is key. It is more important than ever to have friendly and interactive platforms. In terms of talent acquisition, companies that prioritize the candidate experience are more than twice as likely to improve their cost per hire on a year–by-year basis.1 In addition, social capabilities can enable recruiting professionals to use the Internet for job applications, social referrals and video interviewing. Mobile integration also enables users to connect with information where and when they need it.

Ten Tips for Preparing an Effective Acceptable Use Policy

Published By: SpectorSoft     Published Date: Apr 01, 2015
Corporate computers and information and communications systems (collectively, “electronic resources”) remain the workhorse for most businesses, even as alternatives, such as third-party text messaging services, external social media, and cloud computing, flourish. Employees rely on corporate electronic resources for e-mail, calendaring, business contacts, Internet access, document creation and storage, and a multitude of other business applications. Consequently, for employers, it is critical to establish and maintain their right to inspect all information stored on, and to monitor all communications transmitted by, corporate electronic resources. The corporate acceptable use policy is the linchpin of that effort. The ten tips below are intended to aid employers who either want to implement an acceptable use policy for the first time, or who need to update their policy.

Enabling Small and Midsize Businesses to Acquire and Retain Customers in an Evolving Digital World

Published By: HPE     Published Date: Mar 23, 2015
With new technologies, new opportunities often emerge, especially in business. The advent of innovations, such as social media and mobile devices, is changing the ways businesses interact with customers and the ways in which customers desire to be engaged. Opportunities arising from the benefits of salesforce automation, business intelligence (BI), and customer relationship management (CRM) applications are providing new levels of insight, helping businesses acquire customers more efficiently and retain those customers longer. As a direct result, organizations that invest in better understanding potential customers are likely to see higher returns than those organizations that possess a more limited understanding of their customer base. Seeking the competitive advantage resulting from improved customer focus, IT organizations have increased investment in business intelligence and analytics and the underlying infrastructure to support those applications.

Improving Collaboration by Adding Social Capabilities to Email

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Nov 13, 2014
This IDC Technology Spotlight paper takes a look at why Email remains the primary mode of communication in business today. While there is prevalent speculation that social software and other real-time communications applications will replace email, email nevertheless remains a stalwart in business operations. In addition, as relationships across all business communication channels continue to be redefined, innovative modes and methods of communication are emerging. As a result, locating the right data and information at the right time — while still critical — becomes increasingly complex. IDC expects that organizations will use social software, such as Notes and Domino 9x Social Edition, to complement existing tools and address these business needs for the foreseeable future.

Advanced Network Protection with McAfee Next Generation Firewall

Published By: McAfee     Published Date: Sep 15, 2014
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
