Getting the most out of A/B and other controlled tests.
In the fast-moving digital world, even experts have a hard time assessing new ideas. Case in point: At Bing a small headline change an employee proposed was deemed a low priority and shelved until one engineer decided to do a quick online controlled experiment—an A/B test—to try it out. The test showed that the change increased revenue by an astonishing 12%.
That experience illustrates why it’s critical to adopt an “experiment with everything” approach, say Ron Kohavi, the head of the Analysis & Experimentation team at Microsoft, and Stefan Thomke, an HBS professor.
In this article they describe: How to properly design and execute A/B and other controlled tests
? Ensure test integrity
? How to interpret results and avoid pitfalls
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.

A point of sale system is unlike any other piece of technology employed by businesses. It is a sophisticated computer system that manages sensitive customer data in a public space, often accessible by a large number of employees, in addition to customers or anyone else in the area. Because of this, it’s a unique target for compromised data. Plus, it’s mission-critical nature means compromised systems can bring a business to a halt, resulting in lost business.
It is estimated that organizations have a one-in-four chance of experiencing a data breach1. Within the business space, it’s estimated that 89 percent of retail data breaches were targeted at point of sale systems, according to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Report2. At HP, data integrity is of utmost importance, and we have prioritized advanced security in our technology at every step of the design process.
