Employee management tools that are paper-driven and spreadsheet-oriented are no longer viable workforce development strategies. The modern worker wants performance evaluations to be goal-oriented and feedback-focused, with learning opportunities that are self-driven and personalized to their own career aspirations. Combining Performance with Learning helps employees and managers create meaningful career-building plans that lead to bottom line growth.
We’re amidst disruption in the way people work and learn. Learning and Development as a function must adapt and go beyond the "check the box" approach, putting the learner experience front and center. Employees are now sitting in the driver's seat when it comes to their career path. Forward thinking organizations must move from simply managing training to creating a holistic learning experience, and transition from being training facilitators to learning curators. Modern tools will help make this transition possible. Whether you’re developing an L&D program from the ground up, or want to bring innovation into your current program, this eBook can help you structure your plans to be even more impactful for your business and for your workforce.
Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired.
Today, though, the industry sits on the precipice of the biggest innovation in the history of wireless LAN: the release of 802.11ac Wave 2. Wave 1 of 802.11ac brought network speeds that were 1.3 Gbps (Gigabits per second), which is on par with wired networking speeds. However, 802.11ac Wave 2 shatters the gigabit barrier with speeds of up to 6.8 Gbps.

The 2015 Waying Real-Time Marketing Report: Making Real-Time Moments Matter is a first-of-its-kind research study aiming to provide the marketing industry with a quantitative baseline for real-time marketing strategy, execution and trends as currently practiced by major brands. In surveying 200 marketing professionals, Director level and above, who are currently practicing real-time marketing at companies with $100 million in revenue or more, the study drives home the understanding that effective real-time marketing cannot consist of a string of sporadic actions. Instead it requires a carefully planned strategy with the resources to discover the right trends, audiences, and content and target them with meaningful marketing experiences at the time.
This executive summary discusses the current state of project portfolio management and how it could help drive value in software delivery when it focuses on doing the right thing at the right time instead of simply on efficiency.

The migration of contact centers from on-premises to the cloud is well underway and dramatically changing how companies deliver customer experience. That is the most important finding in a new 8x8-CCNG survey of 154 contact center customers conducted in the U.S. and U.K. The survey suggests three quarters of companies have recognized the value of the cloud, with 25% of contact centers having fully deployed cloud today and another 28% partially transitioned. In addition, 21% have plans to migrate within the next year.
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS).
Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors.
Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line?
A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.

Banks and financial institutions have faced a spate of regulations centered on capital adequacy since the financial crisis started in 2008. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) initiated a series of reforms to strengthen risk, capital and liquidity rules across banks. Among the important changes recommended are new rules for calculating Tier I and Tier II capital and the inclusion of additional risk measurement components for market risk, liquidity risk and counterparty risk. Despite these changes, a key drawback of the Basel framework is its focus on historical capital adequacy. While being useful, it does not help assess the impact of stress events on banks from an ex-ante basis. Hence regulatory agencies in several jurisdictions have mandated banks to define a forward-looking capital plan that incorporates stress scenarios.
