The business world is entering an age of the digital “haves” and the digital “have-nots.” In fact, research firm Forrester anticipates a growing “digital crisis” in its 2018 predictions, noting that 60% of CIOs and other executives it surveyed say they’re behind in their digital transformations. Meanwhile, Forrester expects one in five CEOs will fail to act on digital initiatives and put their firms in serious jeopardy as a result.
Savvy organizations are embracing cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other transformative technologies to solve meaningful business problems and achieve their strategic priorities. Everyone else is getting left behind.
Nowhere is this fork-in-the-road moment more apparent than in how enterprise IT teams deliver and manage services, to employees and customers alike.

Increasingly, enterprises are opening their data and applications to partners, developers, mobile apps and cloud
services. APIs provide a standardized way to open up information assets across the web, mobile devices, serviceoriented
architecture (SOA) and the cloud. However, to make API information sharing safe, reliable and cost-effective,
enterprises must deal with critical security, performance management and data adaptation challenges.
CA API Management combines advanced functionality for back-end integration, mobile optimization, cloud
orchestration and developer management. It is unique in its ability to address the full breadth of enterprise
API management challenges.
As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

Digital transformation doesn’t have to be intimidating or complicated. If you take it in stages and work with an experienced partner, it can be a straightforward journey. At this stage, it’s all about transforming how people work.

The amount of paper that DUCA Financial Services had to retain for every member they dealt with was piling up. In fact, DUCA had a complete office wall dedicated to the storage of client records in thirteen large fireproof filing cabinets. "We simply ran out of space and had no more room to put anything," said Jack Vanderkooy, President & CEO. "While we have to maintain documents for our daily reference and access, the problem was made greater by the fact that legally we have to retain documents and files for the full term of each mortgage or loan."
Over the past decade, talent management initiatives have become a critical priority for organizations. While CEOs see the business value of talent management— typically talent acquisition, learning, performance, talent mobility, compensation, and analytics—some organizations have found it challenging to quantify the business impact or return on such investments. If you are looking for help in building a talent management business case, this overview was created for you.
Over the past decade, talent management initiatives have become a critical priority for organizations. In 2016, KPMG found that 99 percent of CEOs reported they’ve taken action to develop existing or future talent.1 The same study also found that nearly half of CEOs expected their companies to be transformed into a significantly different entity within the next three years. This is because since 2000, 52% of companies in the Fortune 500 have gone bankrupt, been acquired, or ceased to exist.3 To remain competitive in our disruptive, digital age, this type of business transformation has become necessary. Achieving these huge business transformation feats is not for the faint of heart and requires robust organizational change and talent management.

According to a recent study by Aberdeen Group: "Within the next two years, the percentage of a company?s revenue that is dictated by contracts will increase from 56% to 68%." From renewals to projections and compliance, the ability to close the contract in the shortest timeframe possible and readily access the executed contracts across the enterprise will become the leading performance indicator of a company?s long term success.
The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated
