"The old rules no longer apply. Digital technologies have radically transformed the business landscape, yet many organizations have completely ignored this reality. A new survey of IT decision makers found 96% see digital transformation as important or critical, yet 55% say they have one year or less to respond before they financially suffer.

The manufacturing industry has entered a completely new technological realm that did not even exist five years ago. Three industrial revolutions forever changed manufacturing—and the world—and the fourth is now underway. Factories have had to adapt rapidly with the advent of advanced automation and robotics as well as software to manage processes and control. The onset of digital manufacturing accelerates the need for new approaches. While consumers typically embrace disruptive technology with enthusiasm, manufacturers inevitably approach new technology with caution, carefully evaluating how it can improve their businesses. Eventually, however, caution must be replaced with innovation to ensure survival. Those organizations that find themselves on the wrong side of the technology curve today will face increasing challenges to remain competitive as time marches forward.
Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

Great food and great service, delivered consistently, are at the heart of any
successful restaurant business.
But success — and survival — also depend on being profitable. Every restaurant
owner, whether independent or part of a large chain, understands that labor and
inventory costs represent a significant variable expense to the business. Keeping
control of those costs is as critical as the culinary magic that occurs in the kitchen.
After all, how can a restaurant expect to make a profit when they are regularly
overstaffing or running out of ingredients?
Centralized and accurate network security management is more than a trend—it is quickly establishing itself as the only means of network survival. Old-school point solutions, where each solution served a single purpose at a particular point in the network, are quickly becoming unwieldy, if not impossible, to manage. Larger enterprises may have hundreds of point products throughout their network, and managing them effectively, efficiently, and securely can only be done through a centralized network security management solution. Look for eight key features in your network security management solution to ensure that your network not only survives but thrives.
Network availability and survivability in the face of an attack requires specific tools and processes. Are you using RBAC, hierarchical policy management and individual domain control? Find out which eight features you must deploy now.
