Learn why the next generation of Business Process Management has to realign its priorities to focus on being agile, responsive and aimed at achieving business outcomes that deliver, drive, and create innovative ways to help organizations stay competitive.
The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.
In a growing business everyone – and everything – counts. You literally can’t afford underperforming employees, and lack of direction can be fatal. If you want long-term success, you really need to focus on where you’re going, what you need to get there, and put plans in place to make that happen.
Seventy-five percent of enterprise organizations currently use some type of cloud service from cloud providers that offer new capabilities and economies of scale. No single cloud, however, is guaranteed to meet all your needs today and in the future. Learn about a flexible, hybrid, multicloud approach that keeps you free to choose the right cloud resources for business at hand.
In today’s ‘always on, always connected’ world where sensitive data is almost certain to be stored electronically, organizations can no longer afford to operate without some form of Endpoint Protection. The costs related to network downtime or stolen data resulting from malicious attacks significantly outweighs that of maintaining an up to date solution.
Although the unified nature of Endpoint Protection has made extensive security functionality easier to manage, selecting the right products can be a difficult task. This whitepaper aims to explain how the core functionality of Enterprise Protection suites have developed, what to look for in a solution, and which technologies will need to be considered in the future. In today’s business environment, it is no longer a question of whether to invest in Endpoint Protection, but a question of which solution is right for your organization.

The role of the CMO is rapidly evolving as CEOs raise expectations about how marketing should contribute to company growth. Who are today’s CMOs, where did they come from, what do they do best and how do they do it? gyro, Forbes Insights and SAP surveyed more than 300 marketing executives to find out. Uncover answers and insights when you discover the unique traits that create a “growth CMO,” an elite marketer who successfully drives cultural change, builds marketing capabilities for the future and achieves compelling business results.
The digital age has driven a rapid transformation of the IT role. No longer an order-taker, IT must now become a game-changer for the organization, according to new research gyro conducted addressing the perceptions, expectations and future priorities of IT. For IT to become a true change agent and business consultant, it must embrace its “human side” and show its relevance to business operations’ and leaders’ success. For many IT groups, this requires a change in culture and an updated mindset about the department’s ultimate purpose and focus, along with improvements in interdepartmental communication.
The quick-service restaurant industry continues to be a favorite among consumers who look to the sector for a wide variety of food served quickly and at a low price. The speed and efficiency of QSRs, which include the emergent “fast casual” restaurants, match today’s on-the-go lifestyle of consumers across all ages who often are too busy to cook at home.
That said, consumers expect their dining experience at a QSR to be comfortable with conveniences ranging from WiFi connectivity to ordering kiosks and dining area entertainment on large screens or even tableside tablets. They expect the information on menu boards to be accurate and up-to-date and their meal orders to be fulfilled quickly and accurately. Technology is a major enabler in meeting consumers’ expectations while simultaneously helping QSR locations increase operational efficiencies and quality of service.
Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.
Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.
Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers.
Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.

Today's artifical intelligence (AI) solutions are not sentient in the manner popularized in science fiction by scores of self-aware and typically nefarious androids. Even so, the ability to arm such systems with the ability to directly sense and respond to their in situ environment is critical. Why? In the future, our experiences will be smart, intuitive and informed by analytics that are not seen
but felt via new business, personal and operational engagement models. Enabling this interaction requires AI applications that can sense, analyze and respond to their environment in an intelligent
and interactive manner. Without requiring the end user to write, understand or interpret code.
“Sensitive” artificial intelligence enables:
• More productive use of expanded (big, often unstructured) information sources
• Intuitive man-machine interactions (no code-speak here!)
• Adaptive, immersive experiences and environments
As frequently touted on the nightly news, AI’s popularity is clear. Ho

The Department of Homeland Security puts businesses in two categories: those who have already experienced the pain of losing valuable electronic data, and those who will at some point in the future. Well-prepared businesses know that deploying the right resources, processes and technology to protect vital HR information is important, but having adequate resources and technology in place to protect the same invaluable data in branch offices is just as important, though often overlooked. This paper will teach you how real-time data replication software can automatically backup branch office data to a central server for a simpler, more reliable and cost-effective way to protect your branch.

In this ESG white paper, the capabilities and common characteristics of flash implementations are categorized as “bronze”-, “silver”-, and “gold”-type approaches, depending on the degree to which they enable fully featured storage systems. It evaluates how HP’s storage delivers the basics and follows with a series of flash-specific optimizations and advances that we’ll call “gold standard” flash capabilities, after which it hints at HP’s vision of the future for their flash storage architecture. Throughout the paper, the importance of both IT architecture and business implications is emphasized.
If you’re looking to make a primary storage investment in the near future, you can’t afford to not consider an all-flash array. HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage was built to make your IT investments go farther and protect them for longer without asking you to sacrifice performance or scalability. That’s why the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 is the only all-flash array on the market that is flash-optimized without being flash-limited—so you won’t have to make business limiting decisions when it comes to implementing your new all-flash array.
