The time of mobile point of sale (mPOS) has arrived.
While the mission to adopt EMV has dominated the payments industry over the past few
years, many hotels, resorts and casinos are now focusing their efforts on rapid planning and
implementation of mPOS strategies. A number of emerging trends are driving this new focus,
including an emphasis on enhancing guest experiences and building brand loyalty by leveraging
digital and mobile technologies.
Innovative hotels, resorts and casinos are using these solutions to create entirely new guest
experiences that improve service speed and convenience while creating distinct competitive
advantages. mPOS is increasingly becoming a key part of the picture, providing unique
opportunities to improve guest service quality and engagement, create new efficiencies and cost
savings, and strengthen their brand.
This eBook will provide an overview of those opportunities, some key trends in the hotel
& lodging industry, and guide you through the key requirem
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.

FINANCIAL SERVICES’ HISTORY OF DISRUPTION
Financial Services is an industry driven by disruption. Transformative business models such as low-cost brokerages, innovative investment products like ETFs, and the huge regulatory mandates like Gramm-Leach-Bliley are but a few examples. Here are some others:
• New fintech firms such as a recent nine billion dollar investment in Ant Financial Services Group and myriad other venture capital-led fintech startups targeting well established segments across the financial services industry
• Robo-advisor services powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning intermediating financial advisors and portfolio managers alike
• Ever changing regulatory and risk management mandates, such as GDPR, Basel III, and Open Banking, transforming customer engagement and capital allocation
Read this whitepaper to learn how you can overcome these and other disruptions.

City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites:
• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system
A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovatio
Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in
every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the
flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years.
A technology-enabled business strategy such as digital transformation (DX) makes it possible for firms to
expand their competitive differentiation in the market. Although disruptive, DX requires firms to effectively
and efficiently combine (technology) platforms, (business) processes, (data) governance, and (people)
talent to gather deep and timely insights from data and actuate these insights to optimize business
operations, develop new and innovative products and services, and transform customer engagement.
The days when avoiding the Cloud was a defensible position for a business are gone. By taking advantage of the Cloud, organizations not only gain its direct benefits, but are also better able to leverage other new technologies and become more efficient and innovative

As the generation that pioneered the social media persona, Gen Y aren’t known for fading into the background – the average Gen Yer juggles four different social media accounts, crafting individual personalities on each. But despite their desire to stand out, today’s young people are especially keen to work together; so much so that 40% would even pay out of their own pocket for social collaboration tools at work
Despite this, workplaces aren’t always giving them the tools they need to work effectively with one another. While 38% of Gen Y feel that outdated modes of collaboration obstruct a company’s ability to innovate, 71% say they face challenges using their company’s collaboration tools. As a result, they’re taking it upon themselves to create collaborative working environments, share innovative ideas and embrace the diversity of thought that comes along with it.

Do you want all of your employees to expand their influence, go beyond what is expected, and purposefully create improvements for your business?
To simplify this question, do you want your employees to perform great work? The fact of the matter is that anyone can be a difference maker in your organization.

Innovative delivery and content is THE currency in advertising and only programmatic platforms can deliver the value to the advertiser to ensure the return on these immersive media formats.

Programmatic advertising provides for repeatable, automated advertising that allows for exponential success and accountability, which is precisely what advertisers historically were missing and continually seek.
