2016 Digital Channel Threat Report

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Aug 03, 2016
Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive with each other and with disruptive competitors. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes. Unfortunately, the speed and convenience that these capabilities afford is a benefit to consumers and fraudsters alike. To successfully prevent fraud while retaining the benefits of offering digital financial services, FIs must understand how fraudsters are exploiting these capabilities and fight fraud with customer experience in mind.

Converged Infrastructure: Architectural Confidence in an Uncertain World

Published By: Dell EMC     Published Date: May 12, 2016
Businesses face greater uncertainty than ever. Market conditions, customer desires, competitive landscapes, and regulatory constraints change by the minute. So business success is increasingly contingent on predictive intelligence and hyperagile responsiveness to relentlessly evolving demands. This uncertainty has significant implications for the data center — especially as business becomes pervasively digital. IT has to support business agility by being more agile itself. It has to be able to add services, scale capacity up and down as needed, and nimbly remap itself to changes in organizational structure.

Customer Experience Metrics and Key Performance Indicators

Published By: Oracle Service Cloud     Published Date: Mar 23, 2016
This document defines Oracle’s Customer Experience (CX) Value Equation as the strategic method to identify and measure the value of organizational CX. This model was originally documented in “CX Metrics and KPIs – September 2012.” It has received wide support, and has been the #1 searched hit and downloaded CX KPI document for 3+ years – a significant achievement in this industry – in an era where concepts are replaced daily with the latest, greatest fad. Since the original publication, I have received significant feedback that has been overwhelmingly positive, but with a request to comment on additional topics – most notably: brand impact, shared services, and Oracle’s Road to Modern. This updated paper leverages the original work, adds information around these additional topics and incorporates our continued client experience.

Frost & Sullivan whitepaper “Data Center Management Services"

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Mar 15, 2016
To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

Datacenter Care IDC whitepaper

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Mar 15, 2016
As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.
