While the inevitable move to Windows 7 has been on the horizon for IT departments for several years, it’s clear that migration projects continue to plague many IT professionals. RES Software commissioned its second Windows 7 migration survey in June 2012 to assess the progress of these implementations in relation to a previous benchmarking survey issued in 2010. The most recent survey captures data from more than 330 IT professionals in North America and Europe across multiple industries and job functions. The results have been analysed and are highlighted within this research brief.
The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has shown incredible promise across a wide range of industries. But the benefits of automation have mostly occurred through Robotic Process Automation (RPA), which automates repetitive, mundane tasks – liberating workers to focus on higher-level business initiatives that only humans are capable of providing. After successful trials in most of the world’s largest organizations, automation and AI are poised to transform the global workplace. Making Work Human: 5 Challenges, research by Goldsmiths, University of London, supported by Automation Anywhere, seeks to uncover the main obstacles that organizations must now overcome in order to scale automation and AI, and recognize the true potential of these ground-breaking technologies.
Workers expect a high-quality workplace and the ability to be productive anywhere. As people increasingly prefer tablets and laptops, organizations are reassessing their continued investment in traditional PCs.

Companies with multicloud services are outperforming their peers on a number of metrics — and achieving the key objectives that led them to the cloud services model.
Take a look at the IT ecosystem of any company today and there’s a good chance you’ll find it includes offerings from several cloud services providers. That’s certainly the case at mid- to large-sized companies with at least 500 employees, according to a recent survey conducted by IDG Research. The survey of 100 senior IT professionals found that 59% are already multi-cloud adopters — that is, using computing and storage services from two or more cloud providers. Another 31% of respondents say they plan to become multi-cloud organizations in the coming 12-24 months, with only 10% still in the “consideration” phase.
The survey results also reveal interesting insights into the drivers behind multicloud adoption. The perennial desire to reduce IT costs remains important, but the respondents rate two other factors.

Forward-thinking enterprises understand what it takes to be successful in this data-rich, increasingly automated economy. According to the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services research report The Rise of Intelligent Automation: TurningComplexity into Profit, sponsored by Oracle, at least 7 in 10 executives understand that predictive analytics (80%) and AI and machine learning (68%) are important for the future of the business.
Even as executives recognize the vital role data plays in their businesses, many are unable to take advantage of the value residing in their data. The old ways of collecting, managing, storing, and analyzing data are no longer effective, and are preventing businesses from extracting potential value. Many simply can’t execute on a data-driven vision.

In March of 2019, Sirkin Research was commissioned by LiveAction to identify the driving forces of network transformation and how the rapidly evolving network environment is impacting network professionals. It is well recognized that network transformations, such as SD-WAN, WiFi, and multi-cloud, edge computing among other trends, are creating a host of new challenges and opportunities for network operations.

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.

Technology is empowering today’s consumers like never before. Consumers are getting used to buying, communicating and interacting with service providers whenever and however they want. Downtime is unacceptable and as a result broadband and telco providers are constantly put to the test with regards to customer service. There is an enormous disconnect between what customers expect and what broadband and telco providers are actually providing. All customers want to be understood as individuals, but this need is not always being met. Moving forward, broadband and telco providers need to differentiate themselves and provide innovative solutions in order retain as well as gain new customers. It is no surprise that nearly half of broadband/Telco providers believe customer service is a critical competitive differentiator. Download this research study and learn how broadband and telco providers can improve customer service.
In today’s “always on” digital world every point of engagement with a customer—from a service call to a marketing email—is a critical moment for retail banks where the customer relationship is put to the test over and over again. And while in most cases banks are delivering satisfactory customer service to their clients, they are missing key opportunities to provide deeper personalization. With nearly one in four consumers saying they would start looking for a new bank if they received poor customer service, banks need to evolve with their customers and always be looking at innovative ways to communicate and service them more efficiently. Download this research study and get a deeper understanding of the challenges facing today’s banks and the technology solutions they must embrace to keep pace with consumer demands.
It is no secret banks are losing customers, and fast. A recent Finextra/Pegasystems survey pegs that 78% of banks have lost business in the last 12 months. The question is “Why?”. It all comes down to engaging with customers before, during and even after the sales process. Nearly all banks are struggling with the impact of client due diligence and KYC (know your customer) regulation on their onboarding processes, and are painfully aware that lack of speed, process visibility and repeat data requests are frustrating their corporate customers. The same holds true for service, where corporates are crying out for improvement, as well as omni-channel access and quick turnaround of service requests and inquiries. To stop the sales decline, banks need to begin doing all these things well. They will then be more competitive in the market as well as retain and win new business.
