The Augmented Human Enterprise is an independent academic study into the reality and future of automation and AI technologies in the workplace.
The future impact of automation and AI on businesses and the people working within them is under constant debate. Advocates hail a future utopia, detractors foresee our dystopian demise. But what's the reality today? A team of academics at Goldsmiths, University of London set out to investigate the real-life impact of automation on work and found that augmented workplaces–those with collaboration between human and machines–score 33% higher on factors deemed to make a workplace more human.

How to overcome complexity and be ready for future growth.
The modern production digital print market brought a world of opportunities for micro-runs and variable data printing into the hands of Print Service Providers (PSPs). With print available in any quantity to anyone, print is being democratized, resulting in ever-greater numbers of increasingly smaller jobs. The old print model of high-volume static print is being replaced with a myriad of micro-runs and micro-jobs.
Automation that allows PSP owners to master the ensuing complexity and respond faster than ever before is enabling them to refocus on market development and on delivering value.
Just like your business, technology never stops advancing. Each year, there are new ways that technology can automate processes, lower costs, and enhance customer and employee satisfaction - all with the goal of increasing revenue! And while it can be difficult to change how your business works, leaving old methods behind and embracing new technology can help lead your business to more success and growth.
The technology landscape in the financial services sector is vast, ranging from cutting-edge to mission-critical, each having an impact on the industry as a whole. Customer-facing services and back-end operations alike are seeing real benefits from innovation, including greater efficiencies and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
The rate at which technology is evolving is increasing almost exponentially. In the business sector, hardware has given way to software-defined everything, while many on-premises technologies are now offered as a service. Much of the advances in technology over the last few years have been the direct result of the growing ubiquity of the cloud and faster connectivity speeds, both of which have enabled companies to adopt digital transformation technologies to help them work smarter and more efficiently.
The quick-service restaurant industry continues to be a favorite among consumers who look to the sector for a wide variety of food served quickly and at a low price. The speed and efficiency of QSRs, which include the emergent “fast casual” restaurants, match today’s on-the-go lifestyle of consumers across all ages who often are too busy to cook at home.
That said, consumers expect their dining experience at a QSR to be comfortable with conveniences ranging from WiFi connectivity to ordering kiosks and dining area entertainment on large screens or even tableside tablets. They expect the information on menu boards to be accurate and up-to-date and their meal orders to be fulfilled quickly and accurately. Technology is a major enabler in meeting consumers’ expectations while simultaneously helping QSR locations increase operational efficiencies and quality of service.
Hospitality is a customer-focused industry, with a hotel brand’s reputation and ultimate success dependent on the quality of the experience of its guests. It is no surprise then, that digital transformation efforts within the hospitality sector are focused on technologies that improve the guest experience, from check-in to check-out and everything in between.
Today’s travelers are digitally savvy, using their smartphones and mobile devices for a multitude of tasks. They expect a high-quality connection throughout the property and the ability to perform certain tasks from the hotel’s app, such as checking in and choosing their own room. They expect in-room entertainment beyond basic cable and in-room digital devices they can use to order food, book a massage or control the lighting, for example.
Retail has been transformed by technology in multiple ways, from the way customers interact with retailers to how products are offered and acquired. Indeed, the entire shopping experience has been redefined and expanded to enable customers to purchase products anytime, anywhere, with any device, from any number of retailers.
Consumers’ changing shopping behaviors and their reliance on technology enables retailers to reach a wider swath of potential buyers, moving well beyond the borders of their physical store locations to new geographies and populations. That said, retailers must understand how to use technology effectively to draw in customers and entice them to purchase, as well as help them improve their operations and enable new, innovative ways to keep customers coming back.

It’s important for American manufacturers to stay current if they wish to remain successful? Positioning yourself for growth means looking to the future and gaining efficiencies through new technologies? That’s why this question may be the most important one for your business— are you a future-ready manufacturer?
Before you can adequately answer that question, you and the members of your organization need to know the answers to these three questions:
X Where are we today? X Where do we want to be in three to five years? X How can we embrace innovation and automation?
If decision-makers in your organization can’t answer these questions, you have bigger issues than you may realize?
At the very least, tackling these tough questions now will put you ahead of competitors who are consumed with putting out today’s fires rather than focusing on growth opportunities? Manufacturers that aren’t prepared for the coming global megatrends and don’t invest in breakthrough technologies will be rende

Technology is in a constant state of evolution, and the world of automation is no exception. In this eBook, we’ll consider how you can stay ahead of the competition—because in the application economy, it’s vital to ensure the tools your organization uses are capable of positioning you at the forefront of industry—not just today, but tomorrow as well.
We are heading toward a scenario where workload automation tools are capable of thinking for themselves and making decisions based on policy; this is what we at CA Technologies are calling intelligent automation. At the same time, however, more and more challenges are being presented as the increasingly fragmented places our workloads run begin to impact our analytics, reporting and processes. The task is to navigate these hurdles while at the same time allowing our enterprises to harness the power of new technology.
Since the sepia-toned days of the early 19th century, industry has sought effective ways to control manufacturing and production processes. New technology has greatly influenced factories and plants, resulting in new operational approaches to maximize benefits and achieve 100% ROI in a very short time.
Power industries - including Nuclear, Fossil, Hydro, Wind and Geothermal - are susceptible to a variety of cyber threats which can wreak havoc on control systems. Management, engineering and IT must commit to a comprehensive approach that encompasses threat prevention, detection and elimination.
Cybersecurity threats are an unfortunate reality for industry everywhere. How do you protect your business while still embracing new technologies that enable you to grow and deliver the best possible results? Robust cybersecurity protection is a must, as well as rigorous mindset, policies, and methodologies. Download the whitepaper to learn more.
Today’s plants are faced with managing two major challenges: the increasing speed

In the face of all the challenges presented by the accelerating pace of application development and everexpanding options for deployment, IT organizations are changing how they deliver services. Traditional manual approaches are simply too slow to keep up. Yet, when application teams attempt to circumvent IT in order to speed up deployment, security, performance, and longterm manageability suffer.
To get the most out of your multi-cloud deployments, you need to fundamentally rethink how you deliver the right application services that meet current and future needs, consistently across every cloud. Standardization is key. If too much is changing too quickly, start with standardization. As your organization evolves, you will be better positioned to take the next step in making those standardized services accessible to developers through
the automation toolchains they rely on.
The concept of an automated home is not a new one: the idea has been floated since the 1930s at World’s Fair venues, and in popular culture as TV shows and movies imagine home life of the future – solidifying the public’s view of the benefits of home automation.
In the 1980s, modern versions of the automated home began to turn up in the marketplace. The concept of the “connected house” was first introduced by the American Association of Homebuilders, and formed the basis of what we now consider to be “home automation.” The connected house presented a new way to wire, connect, and control all of the devices in the modern home. However, it proved to be too expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to construct, and became limited to the luxury homebuilder market.
