For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability.
I had the pleasure of meeting David Harcourt, Associate Manager of Employee Insights at Yum! Brands when he spoke at the Analytics Experience 2016 conference in Las Vegas. His session, “HR Analytics from Scratch: 8 Lessons Learned in the First Year,” provided valuable insight into what it takes to build HR analytic competency from scratch.

Convenience is absolutely critical to succeeding in e-commerce. Any glitches along the path to purchase potentially result in a lost sale. That's one reason we think Apple Pay's new mobile payment feature that uses a fingerprint is going to be a game changer. Its another step in reducing hurdles to online buying. You see it, you select it, you pay with your finger. What could be more convenient?
Not interested in Apple Pay? Or unable to use it? At the very least, make sure customers that shop on multiple devices are recognized, no matter which device they log into. Giving them access to their stored information will make for a much smoother checkout.
Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme, including:
Does our culture support employees who raise concerns?
Are our communications with employees reaching the intended audiences and having the desired effect?
Are our investigations thorough and effective?
Do we need more training?
Do we need to review or update our policies?
Do employees know about our reporting channels?
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. This year’s analysis of our EMEA & APAC data from nearly 14,000 ethics and compliance hotline reports revealed key data points that compliance professionals can use to benchmark and assess their programme’s performance, and move toward predictive risk mitigation.
Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme.
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. To help, each year NAVEX Global takes anonymised data collected through our hotline and incident management systems to create these reports. This particular report is the second NAVEX Global benchmark report we have published that focuses specifically on the status of ethics and compliance hotline services in the EMEA and APAC regions. This benchmark only takes reporting data from organisations that has its data warehoused in Europe—a subset of the data used in our global hotline report.

Modern application architectures such as microservices are changing the way that modern enterprises run their infrastructure.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. And now with the emergence of containerized applications, it
is critical to re-evaluate how application services are provided across data centers and multiple cloud environments.
Talent is an increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance and poses one of the most significant barriers to growth. CEB research finds that boards at top-performing companies are twice as likely to have a deep understanding of talent issues as boards at lower-performing competitors. However, most boards lack sufficient understanding of key talent issues facing the companies they oversee, particularly because the data and analysis they receive provide limited insight. This whitepaper outlines the critical talent conversations every board should have and shows how industry leaders are broadening their understanding of talent issues and assurance about critical talent risks by expanding the perimeter of talent issues they monitor beyond executive leadership and reshaping conversations on executive performance evaluation and succession.
Organizations that need to protect business critical applications, and sensitive data and hosts recognize that traditional network defenses can be readily bypassed by attackers. This white paper defines four key qualities of an effective host-based IPS.

The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service.
