Research shows that legacy ERP 1.0 systems were not designed for usability and insight. More than three quarters of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans 1. These systems lack modern best-practice capabilities needed to compete and grow. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”.
Oracle’s goal is to help you navigate your own journey to modernization by sharing the knowledge we’ve gained working with many thousands of customers using both legacy and modern ERP systems. To that end, we’ve crafted this handbook outlining the fundamental characteristics that define modern ERP.
In 2018, the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) completed a research survey of 450 cybersecurity, IT, and networking security professionals with knowledge of or responsibility for the policies, processes, and controls used for remote office/branch office (ROBO) security. This report is the summary of ESG's conclusions from the study.
"We live and surf in a cyber world where attacks like APT, DDOS, Trojans and Ransomware are common and easy to execute. Domain names are an integral part of any business today and apparently an integral part of an attacker's plan too.
Domain names are carriers of malwares, they act as Command and Control servers and malware's ex-filtrate data too. In today's threat landscape - predicting threats, spotting threats and mitigating them is super crucial.. This is called Visibility and Analytics.
Watch this on demand session with our Cisco cloud security experts Shyam Ramaswamy and Fernando Ferrari as they talk about how Cisco Umbrella and The Umbrella Research team detect anomalies, block threats and identify compromised hosts. The experts also discuss how effectively Cisco spot, react, filter out IOC, block the network communications of a malware; identify and stop a phishing campaign (unknown ones too).

For the second year, we asked 500 panelists their
feelings and perceptions regarding the state of brickand-
mortar retail. The results may surprise you.
Our research found that, although sales associates are generally viewed
neutrally, specific sectors such as consumer electronics stores and momand-
pop shops have a positive perception.
Consumers seek out sales associates who are educated and able to
help them make an informed purchase. Our results also confirmed prior
reporting1 into the growing fluidity between e-commerce and traditional
retail. More than 75 percent of our panelists reported frequently browsing
online, then purchasing the product in-store. Sales associates who are
educated about the products in their store are more likely to sell more. Brands
that ensure that their sales teams have the proper product knowledge
maximize the likelihood that consumers will purchase from them.

The way we produce and consume energy globally is changing. Over the next decade, the energy mix will undergo a significant shift at both a supranational and domestic level as we work towards a cleaner future.
By 2030, the offshore wind power market is expected to be worth £30 billion per year. Fast forward to 2050 and the industry is projected to contribute to at least a third of the total global electricity supply.
While this is great news for power generation companies, recent research has showed that the costs associated with maintaining wind farms will double between 2015 and 2020.
To secure its place in the future energy mix, protecting a wind turbines value and output through effective maintenance will prove critical to achieving a competitive edge.
There are steps that can be taken now, to reduce maintenance costs today and keep them lower in the future.

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.
IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?
