Senior leaders realise the stakes of not addressing digital transformation. PWC suggests that CEOs who aren’t prioritising digital are either changing their minds or being phased out. If you compare PWC’s 2007 Digital IQ report to 2016’s, you’ll see that the number of executives who said their CEO was a champion for digital has more than doubled from 33% to 68%.
Digital transformation doesn’t have to be intimidating or complicated. If you take it in stages and work with an experienced partner, it can be a straightforward journey. At this stage, it’s all about transforming how people work.
Ever since the publication of the War for Talent in 1997, the stakes for getting things right have been high…and they continue to be a top priority for CEOs. However, an over-reliance on traditional methods across critical human capital management processes may be limiting effectiveness.
Stakeholders increasingly expect more from the finance function than transactional processing and historical reporting. Will you meet the challenge or are you at risk of getting left behind?
Read this report to understand:
• what CEOs are looking for from their finance functions
• six priority areas CFOs should focus on to meet new demands from the business
• how leading companies are transforming their finance functions
• five steps for turning disruption into opportunity.
According to Accenture, identifying and influencing these profitability
levers is at the top of most CFO agendas today, as CEOs increasingly look to their finance chiefs for insights on where to invest in new initiatives that can boost top line and bottom line growth.
In this whitepaper, industry expert Michael Volkov, CEO of The Volkov Law Group, LLC, shares key questions now business can afford to overlook when evaluating and selecting vendor risk management solutions.

When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence.
Flybe was one of the 21 companies that were interviewed for quantitative results on their operations as part of an IDC ROI analys

Organizations are at a strategic crossroads. According to IDC analysts,1
two-thirds of CEOs will
center their corporate strategies around digital transformation initiatives. The goal of digital
transformation is only partly to make existing functions more effective. The greater goal is to be
able to do new things and use existing data in new, better ways.
Yet, 72% of current IT spending2—and the focus of IT resources—is on maintaining existing
systems. This creates tension between what needs to be done today and what should be done
for the future.
Middle-tier applications, according to IDC,3
are the core of a digital transformation strategy
because they provide data integration, messaging, and application programming interface (API)
management. Middle-tier applications also provide a platform for application development and
management that can handle traditional enterprise applications and cloud-native, distributed

When Facebook released their bot feature, M, the virtual assistant living inside their Messenger platform, it was billed as the next generation of how people connect and interact with the internet. Since then, over 18,000 companies have created their own branded chatbots with the help of Facebook’s platform.
Never ones to miss out on a trend, Microsoft, Google and Apple have all been hard at work developing their own integrated chatbot features. Brands of all shapes and sizes, from American Express to 1800-Flowers to Domino’s Pizza, all have their own chatbots, proving the versatility of the concept. As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said at the 2016 Build conference, “As an industry, we are on the cusp of a new frontier that pairs the power of natural human language with advanced machine intelligence.”
Für Geschäftsausfälle, oder zumindest für Rentabilitäts- und Gewinnverluste, wurden in den vergangenen 24 Monaten folgende Faktoren verantwortlich gemacht: Die digitale Disruption, wirtschaftliche Instabilität, politische Umwälzungen sowie ein anhaltender Fachkräftemangel. Vermutlich ist es keine große Überraschung, dass eine CEO-Umfrage von Gartner unter Geschäftsleuten ergab, dass das digitale Geschäft im nächsten Jahr oberste Priorität hat. Umfrageteilnehmer wurden gefragt, ob sie eine Management-Initiative oder ein TransformationsProgramm haben, um ihr Unternehmen digitaler zu machen. Die Mehrheit, 62 Prozent, sagte, sie hätten dies. 54 Prozent dieser Unternehmen gaben an, dass ihr digitales Geschäftsziel transformatorisch sei, während 46 Prozent angaben, das Ziel der Initiative sei die Optimierung. * Daher geht es für Unternehmen darum, zu lernen, sich zu entwickeln und agil zu sein. Zudem gilt es für sie, Technologien einzusetzen um effizienter zu konkurrieren und nicht der Trägh

Do you want all of your employees to expand their influence, go beyond what is expected, and purposefully create improvements for your business?
To simplify this question, do you want your employees to perform great work? The fact of the matter is that anyone can be a difference maker in your organization. There is great work that only you can do. There is great work only the person sitting right next to you can do. That is both the beauty and crux of great work. It is something that everybody is capable of, but something that could go wasted if an individual fails to take action and perform great work. From the janitor to the CEO, each individual sees the business from their unique perspective and has the potential to make a difference, be innovative, and ultimately create value for your organization.
