The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. They’re in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. That’s the modern reality of business life—it’s happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, it’s happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are it’s no longer 9 ‘til 5.

The economic face of the APAC region is changing. While the East has long been considered a source of competitively priced raw materials and manufacturing services, the spending power of its inhabitants - and their increased fondness for international travel - has transformed it into a force to be reckoned with.
It’s estimated that, over the next five years, 88% of
the growth in the global middle class will be in the Asia Pacific region.1 If multinational companies hope to take advantage of this vast new target market, they will need to adapt their expansion strategies and offer APAC customers a tailored retail experience.
Doing business across borders presents a whole host of unfamiliar challenges to today’s merchant.
As technological advancement and increasing globalization unlock international markets,
it’s tempting to imagine that a business model successful in one region can simply be transplanted into another.
Not so. The logistics of domestic and international transactions have changed, and so too have customer expectations and preferences. Customer and merchants pain points have transformed and multiplied.
In this report, we explore some of the core challenges businesses today face in their quest to succeed in global commerce.
We offer an overview of how unified commerce can both resolve these issues and offer new advantages and standards of best practice, enabling your business to meet the demands
of tomorrow’s customer, no matter their location, preferred payment method, and mode of contact.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology is at the heart of a growing trend in mass custom manufacturing as well as functional prototyping. The right additive technologies, materials and finishes are transforming manufacturing. Digital-direct thermoplastic manufacturing offers exceptional quality while opening the door to novel design parameters not possible with injection molding.
Thermoplastic additive manufacturing also bypasses the long lead time and up-front investment in injection molding tooling. If you measure your finished parts on the three dimensions: quality, time to market, and cost per cubic inch, in many situations industrial SLS offers a better total value proposition.
Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance.
Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019.
While threat actors made themselves busy with challenging new victims, they ensnared targets in the old ways, using tried-and-true malspam and social engineering tactic

Digital transformation (DX) continues to headline business initiatives as companies look to remain competitive in the rapidly changing IT landscape. Organizations are increasingly investing in and implementing next-generation applications and architectures such as software-defined IT and hybrid IT to drive higher levels of efficiency and agility. These modern technologies and architectures, however, also require organizations to evolve their underlying infrastructure to support new capabilities and demands.
Recent strength in the server market, which continues to operate in a marketwide refresh cycle, illustrates the growing demand for new infrastructure. 1Q18 marked the server market's fifth consecutive quarter of both shipment and revenue growth and represented a fourth consecutive quarter of year-on-year ASP growth, as customers continue to replace aging server infrastructure with more powerful and efficient systems that leverage the latest platform developments from processor supp

Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common:
They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the
kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for
weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience.
Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how
privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated
with their compromise an

Robotic process automation describes the use of technology to automate tasks that are traditionally
done by a human being. The technology itself mimics an end user by simulating user actions such as
navigating within an application or entering data into forms according to a set of rules. RPA is often
used to automate routine administrative tasks that typically require a human being to interact with
multiple systems, but RPA technology is evolving to support the automation of increasingly
sophisticated processes at scale within enterprise architectures rather than on the desktop. Over the
past two years, RPA has been adopted by a number of business process outsourcing (BPO) providers
and a growing number of end-user organizations are now deploying the technology themselves to
create “virtual workforces” of robotic workers.
To meet growing demand for multiple public cloud services, enterprises must shift away from an ad hoc approach of incrementally connecting to one cloud provider after another. For a more strategic approach, I&O leaders must weigh their cloud connectivity decision against five critical criteria.
