Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
The future of work means a new IT balancing act
No matter what the work of your organization, today it’s likely done…
…As much out of the office as in it
…As much on mobile devices as traditional computers
…And much more through cloud applications for core business activities and collaboration with
customers and partners.
The future of work has arrived, and with it comes a complex new balancing act for IT.
On one side of the scale are high expectations for how IT can enable digital transformation
and innovation in the business. On the other side is more accountability for mitigating risk,
even as growing adoption of new technologies means more apps, more devices, and more
mobile employees. This balancing act is driven by current challenges and trends in four areas.
Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is giving organizations the agility to respond quickly to demand for new products, services and applications. Many organisations begin their HCI journey by targeting specific use cases such as virtual desktop infrastructure, disaster recovery and remote office-branch office environments. But HCI continues to evolve far beyond these use cases.
In this case study, we look at real world deployments to identify how HCI is helping businesses to reduce TCO, improve scalability and rapidly adopt new technologies.

A New Security Model Worth Understanding—and Emulating Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network.
Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
Trends in the modern work provide organisations the opportunity to rationalise their real estate and optimise their work space for Smarter Working. Plantronics and our partners provide a comprehensive set of tools to help organisation transform their workspace. Plantronics Audio devices and software are essential tools in the new Simply Smarter Office.
Maximize the effectiveness of collaboration. As teams become ever more dispersed, organisations need to think about more than technology to ensure collaboration is successful. With employees now separated much more by time and distance, a range of communication tools are being used by enterprises to keep everyone connected.
The insurance industry stands on the precipice of change, with waves of innovation and disruption driving new possibilities across all departments, including pricing, underwriting, claims, and fraud.
This webinar recording of a live panel debate is ideal for insurance professionals wanting to understand how best to unlock the possibilities created by advanced analytical techniques such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and others.
This TIBCO and Marketforce webinar on “The Fourth Industrial Revolution in Insurance” includes speakers Ian Thompson, chief claims officer at Zurich; David Williams, chief underwriting officer at AXA; and Clare Lunn, GI fraud director at LV=. The panel discusses:
Moving towards the algorithmic insurer: the opportunities created by AI and ML
How insurers can become more agile in the face of new innovations and disruptive technologies
How the industry can turn structured and unstructured data into insights
Technology has had a profound impact on society, influencing everything from the way we communicate with each other to how we conduct business transactions. In the financial services space, technology has brought banks closer to their customers, offering a wide range of online services to appeal to a population of consumers who now view their smartphones as something they can’t live without.
In the process of shifting their practices to accommodate this new generation of customers, banks are transforming and reinventing themselves from the corporate office to the branch office through innovative services and technologies that take banking beyond the traditional experience. Networks are playing a central role in this transformation.
At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard
VMware AirWatch® features a new – and more efficient – approach to Windows lifecycle management across any use case – whether deploying the OS to your remote workers, onboarding employees’ BYO machines, corporate deployments across your branch offices or managing a special line of business terminal.
