The IoT is more than just machines talking to each other. Consumers rely on it to make their lives more convenient. Industry leaders use the Internet of Things to sell products, automate workflows, and engage with consumers. As time goes on and the technology develops, you’ll see that the IoT is the reason for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)
In every industry, IT professionals are watching their roles and objectives evolve rapidly. The world is now digital and data is at the core of how enterprises, governments and individuals manage their core functions. The impact of data is being felt beyond the IT department; it is reverberating through every aspect of our lives.

There’s no denying that hyperconverged infrastructure is hot right now, promising to dramatically shift the way infrastructure is procured, deployed and managed. But questions remain. Is it actually addressing the real-world concerns faced by real-world customers? What are the catalysts driving organizations to evaluate hyperconvergence and are they finding that the results match the hype when they actually do deploy?
Get the fast facts from this SimpliVity eBook based on research from ActualTech Media, segmented and re-analyzed just for EMEA.

ActualTech Media surveyed over 500 technology professionals and members of organizational management in order to gauge people’s understanding of hyperconvergence, as well as how the market is adopting such solutions.
Digital transformation is creating disruptive change across every major industry, with customer expectation driving rapid innovation.
Using the case of a typical online retailer as an example, we demonstrate how technology enables enterprises to turn disruptive change into operational and competitive advantage.
We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years.
This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity.
There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive.
Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo

Did you know that the average restaurant loses 3-10% of its purchased food before it ever makes to the table ? It’s a sad but true statistic. In an industry where effectively cutting costs can make or break your business, operators can’t afford to simply be conscious of their food waste. They need to take action.
In this infographic, you’ll get a good idea of just how much food your restaurant could be wasting, and what your business stands to gain from better waste tracking.
The restaurant industry is buzzing about automation. With labor costs expected to double and consumer demand for a seamless checkout experience, many restaurants are looking at technologies that can automate tasks in the front-of-house. But there are back-of-house processes that have yet to be fully automated. While auto-counting your inventory may be a thing someday, it’s not here yet.
So if you can’t automate the inventory management process, you can at least use tools that automate its more cumbersome aspects. Maximum labor output, higher levels of accuracy, and better accountability are possible with a system that automates certain tasks and enable manager productivity for on-the-job success.
After reading this eBook, you’ll know:
• The many inefficiencies generated by manual, spreadsheet-based counting methods.
• The innovations being made to inventory management technology.
• How modern, mobile inventory management tools will help your managers reduce costs and increase product
Blockchain in Financial Services is receiving a lot of attention, especially for synchronizing financial agreements between institutions. But how can blockchain be used outside of this context? Can it apply to use cases such as identity, fraud, and AML?
Watch this short webinar to hear how blockchain can be used to solve other key issues facing the industry, about research into consensus algorithms beyond proof of work, and about myths and truths that must be considered for a successful enterprise blockchain implementation.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.
This whitepaper provides 10 examples of TIBCO Data Virtualization enabled applications f
Fire and explosion are the biggest inherent hazards facing the chemicals industry. The combination of flammable raw fuel, open flames and the presence of gas components such as oxygen (O2) methane (CH4) and carbon monoxide (CO) can make chemical processing a hazardous activity, particularly in combustion. Not only is there a potential safety risk with burning combustible materials, but their by-products are often combustible too.

Today, most incumbent organizations (those established before the onset of the digital revolution), in every industry are grappling with the risks of disruption with one hand even as they reach for its opportunities with the other. After years of looking the other way, and then reluctant admission, incumbent organizations have come to accept and even embrace disruption in their business. Most are responding by committing to the idea of digital transformation. But that is where the similarity ends.
The recent economic downturn has created some formidable challenges for the retail banking industry. Fraud and identify theft are on the rise, costing banks big money and raising customer concerns about security.
