AI innovation in retail starts with a tech-forward company culture, from C-suite stakeholders down to every employee. AI greatly enhances a retailer’s ability to harness data for better merchandising, marketing, and customer service. It will not only complement existing retail jobs but introduce brand new roles and skill sets into the human workforce.
Millennials are reshaping the world of work through their knowledge of new technologies, work habits, and attitudes of the 21st-century workplace. At the same time, IT departments are working to add flexibility to the way they are supporting the Millennial worker. Yet it’s not just about IT providing the right tools and devices to its employees so they can get their jobs done effectively; IT needs to offer an overall workplace ecosystem that is secure and innovative. However, there are worrying gaps between what IT provides and what the different types of workers need.
Whether you know it as Industry 4.0, the 4th Industrial Revolution, or Smart Industry, Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that are centered around digitalization. While most industries are already on this digitalization path, the disruption is more visible and pronounced in manufacturing because it is expanding virtual data and processes into environments that have been fundamentally about physical products. This transformation has already started, and its impact is expected to be massive. Technical, economic, and social changes are expected across the whole manufacturing ecosystem, with jobs shifting from offshoring back to nearshoring. Strong technology elements driving this digital revolution include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization. Their impact is profound.

Technology is transforming how we do our jobs, and employees expect the business to accommodate
their work habits.
› Companies must identify roles and profiles and support their needs. Not every employee will
require the same devices to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively. It is paramount for
organizations to seek out specific devices to enable different worker personas.
› IT must become a trusted partner to keep security top of mind. Employees showed a lack of trust
toward IT when facing an issue with their device or ecosystem. It is imperative for IT to become part of
the solution and not the problem; otherwise, workers will find ways to go around security policies and
fix problems on their own, putting the firm at even more risk.
› Employees require a more complete ecosystem. Employees need not only devices to get their jobs
done effectively but an entire ecosystem as well. Without this, businesses will fall further behind in a
fiercely competitive market and lose employ

While there’s no hotter topic at the intersection of business and technology than AI, Avanade research shows that 88% of global business and IT decision-makers say they don’t know how to use AI, and 79% say that internal resistance limits their implementation of it. It doesn’t have to be this way. Human-centered AI, which focuses on augmenting the workforce to improve customer and employee experiences, can contribute directly to achieving business goals.
This point of view discusses the ways your organization can take advantage of a human-centered AI approach, including redefining jobs and creating a digital ethics framework.

There is a tectonic shift in the way we work. We expect the same kind of intuitive, tactile experience with our workplace technology that we now take for granted with our smartphones, tablets and gaming systems. We expect our devices to talk to each other and update automatically. Virtual meetings should be as easy to set up as a video chat, and whatever we need to do our jobs should be as easy to tailor as a streaming music or video application.

Enterprise security has undergone a complete transformation as a result of rapid and sweeping changes that are remaking the way public sector organizations do business. New technologies and trends are changing the very definition of an enterprise, how and where we work, and the tools we use to do our jobs. These trends include:
According to the American Community Survey, tele-commuting jumped 79 percent between 2005 and 2012. More than 9 million American workers did their jobs exclusively from home in 2010, according to the U.S. Census, and 30 million work from home at least once a week. And TechCast at George Washington University estimates as many as 30 percent of U.S. private sector workers could be working from home by 2019. For sales professionals, that proportion is certainly higher. The Telework Research Network found in 2011 that 70 percent of those working from home are in management, professional, sales and office jobs. If you’re in sales, you probably spend a considerable amount of time on the go. And why shouldn’t you? Smartphones offer constant, pocket-sized connectivity. Ubiquitous Wifi threatens to render the cubicle obsolete, and the right social networking strategy can sup-plant a hundred individual pitch meetings.
Over the past few decades, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds, altering how we live and work. As machines take over certain jobs for safety or improved accuracy, some are concerned that technology will eventually replace people. But as businesses incorporate machines and technology deeper into workplaces, it is evident that a mindset shift needs to occur. The working world must find ways to incorporate technology so that people do what people do best, while allowing computers to do what computers do best. It’s time to think differently about technology. It’s time to make technology part of the team.

In today's competitive landscape, organizations are increasingly chasing more aggressive goals with greater pressure to win bigger deals. But only 1/3 of sales reps meet or exceed quota and only 10% are consistently high-performing.
What can organizations do to set their sales teams up for success? A sales enablement solution aligns people, processes and technology to empower sales reps and make them more effective in their day-to-day jobs.
In this guide you'll learn 7 signs that you and your team need to consider a sales enablement solution.
The number of mobile devices managed by enterprises
increased 72 percent from 2014 to 2015. This onslaught
of technology such as notebooks, smartphones, tablets,
watches and gadgets has transformed the way users work.
These devices provide users in just about every sector with
access to the information and tools they need to do their
jobs, wherever and whenever they need them. They’re free
to work at their desks, in conference rooms, while visiting
clients on the road or during a child’s baseball practice. They
can input data directly into a medical chart, an order form
or an inspection report, rather than doubling their work by
transcribing handwritten notes later in the day.
Throughout the twentieth century, the efficiency of real estate
portfolios was quantified primarily in terms of a building’s
cost per square foot and the average number of “usable square
feet” it provided for each person who worked in it. By these
measures, the workplace contributed to an organization’s
bottom line by (1) getting smaller and/or (2) fitting more
people into the same amount of space.
Meanwhile, mobile technologies and new economic and social
pressures ushered in new ways of working. By 2011, more
than 60 percent of large organizations worldwide had
implemented programs and practices that gave people more
choice about where, when, and how to do their jobs.2 But
although a few new workplace metrics (“collaborative seats per
person,” “desk-sharing ratios”) have emerged, the focus on
reducing direct costs (through allocating fewer square feet
to “assigned seats” in individual offices or workstations)

The recruiting industry is not what it used to be. Jobs, technology, candidates, and strategies have all changed immensely over the past few years, as STEM positions proliferate, social media explodes, and a new generation of workers—complete with new habits, wants, and needs—has emerged. You've probably felt the impact of this evolution firsthand, and you've realized that it doesn't matter how many people are actually out there looking for jobs (or not looking for them, as the case might be). If you’re having trouble finding the right candidates for the right positions at the right times, you’re dealing with a talent shortage.
In this eBook, we outline four critical ways you can ensure the development of a rich talent pool.
Analyst Zach Lahey from Aberdeen group will share research insights in this webinar and will explore how to evaluate your internal and external talent acquisition processes to determine what’s working and what’s not. In addition, we will delve into the technologies that are available to make talent acquisition more effective than ever.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to answer these three questions about your current process:
What is your recruiter’s experience like? What are their trials, tribulations, and daily interactions?
What is your candidate’s experience like? Where do they struggle, how much effort does it take for them to find information and apply for jobs?
Finally, if either one (or both) doesn’t meet your expectations, what are you going to do about it and when?
