Most organizations have invested, and continue to invest, in people, processes, technology, and policies to meet customer privacy requirements and avoid significant fines and other penalties. In addition, data breaches continue to expose the personal information of millions of people, and organizations are concerned about the products they buy, services they use, people they employ, and with whom they partner and do business with generally. As a result, customers are asking more questions during the buying cycle about how their data is captured, used, transferred, shared, stored, and destroyed. In last year’s study (Cisco 2018 Privacy Maturity Benchmark Study), Cisco introduced data and insights regarding how these privacy concerns were negatively impacting the buying cycle and timelines. This year’s research updates those findings and explores the benefits associated with privacy investment.
Cisco’s Data Privacy Benchmark Study utilizes data from Cisco’s Annual Cybersecurity Benchma

IT leaders working on customer service projects must display an incredible amount of diligence. An organization’s CRM system has become its lifeline to customers, but as customer needs evolve so has the requirements of CRM. According to Gartner, today’s CRM solution must include a laundry list of capabilities outside its traditional core functionality including: native mobile support of the vendor's customer service and support business applications; real-time analytics; industry-specific functionality and workflow; context mining of voice and text; scalable cloud-based systems; social media engagement; suggested next agent action; multimodal capabilities, such as chat within mobile self-service; and even co-browsing. Gartner surveyed the CRM field and evaluated each vendor including Pegasystems.

At the highest level of organizations, a new management directive has emerged to meet the changed nature of customer demands and interactions as well as the need to differentiate within the market. This directive has one goal: providing a differentiated customer service experience. As products become increasingly commoditized, organizations can set themselves apart from their competitors by providing a unique customer service experience that creates a "relationship" based on intangible benefits that their customers will find hard to give up.
While this vision is theoretically sound, it requires a significant tactical shift in business thinking and processes. The modern customer's habits and service requirements have changed radically. Meeting these needs challenges many historically held beliefs and practices regarding the customer and modes of interaction.
When it comes to investing in ERP systems, improving the efficiency and responsiveness of business processes is a top concern for SAP customers. However, among IT professionals, safe delivery is of higher priority than ERP digitalization or starting an IT agility transformation.
With SAP S/4HANA, this no longer needs to be a compromise. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, IT professionals need to implement not only the technical upgrade of SAP S/4HANA but also the required customizations, which necessitate an intensive amount of business collaboration and software delivery. And for that to happen, IT needs an enterprise agile delivery solution to gather and implement the business requirements to SAP S/4HANA as quickly as possible without business disruption.
Read this white paper to discover how you can transition to SAP S/4HANA and achieve true enterprise agile delivery — a new standard to deliver changes to your SAP environment. Topics include:

You’ve made a major investment in Oracle E-Business Suite applications to run your critical enterprise processes. But these processes stretch beyond Oracle E-Business Suite and rely on a mix of custom and packaged applications.
Management of your critical enterprise processes has become a pressing challenge. Too many staff are tied up in managing the process, as well as finding and diagnosing process errors. SLAs are frequently missed, and customers perceive poor quality of service due to the recurring errors and delays, which are now impacting your critical processes, such as financial period end close, invoicing, payroll and materials requirements planning (MRP) processing. You’ve decided it’s time to consider automation.
Automating Oracle E-Business Suite processes end-to-end can eliminate 90% of business process errors. Download this whitepaper to find out how.

Today’s factory intelligence is the collaborative orchestration of people and machines. By blending intelligence from multiple sources, factories are truly becoming smarter. But it’s not just about the machines. Rather, people are improving machines through a true partnership that turns human experience into smarter machines.
This shift marks a re?orientation to a thought process that’s more natural to people.
After decades of working with 2D blueprints, designs and dimensioned drawings, factory intelligence leverages 3D models that are easier for people to comprehend and use. Plus, many people find more satisfaction in intelligent factory work that challenges them to manage relationships among machines, rather than repeatedly working on a single piece in a line. In smarter factories, people direct machines to adjust for shifting customer requirements and market demands.
