Maintain visibility and control, regardless of device or OS. The consumerisation of enterprise information technology is one of the most significant security concerns today. Gartner's Analyst Ken Delaney explains the impact of consumerisation on enterprise IT.
"Security analysts have a tougher job than ever. New vulnerabilities and security attacks used to be a monthly occurrence, but now they make the headlines almost every day. It’s become much more difficult to effectively monitor and protect all the data passing through your systems. Automated attacks from bad bots that mimic human behavior have raised the stakes, allowing criminals to have machines do the work for them.
Not only that, these bots leave an overwhelming number of alert bells, false positives, and inherent stress in their wake for security practitioners to sift through. Today, you really need a significant edge when combating automated threats launched from all parts of the world.
Where to start? With spending less time investigating all that noise in your logs."
When asked how important technology is to driving innovation in their organizations, 100 percent of CEOs indicated it was important, with 80 percent pointing out that it’s very important, according to HP sponsored research. Even CIOs agree with their CEOs.

The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution.
SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching:
1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment.
2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video.
SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs.

Traditional organizations across the globe are transforming to compete against digital-only players, in restructuring to put the customer first. The world’s buying behavior - and people’s behavior in relation to technology - is quickly changing in connection with online distribution channels, smart devices, and their interplay with offline touchpoints. Siloed business systems and their old reporting lines need to shift, and synchronize - fast.
Whilst businesses of all kinds are utilizing data analytics, many are still only using it to make simple changes that lead to a set of rigid processes. Whereas the more customer-focused organizations are realizing that to deliver exceptional experiences, they need to be able to react to customer data in real-time and predict what might happen next. And that means going beyond simple analytics.
