Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds security walls between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.

This explosion in the amount of information is similar to the boom the marketing world saw in the early 2000s with the introduction of customer data. Now that recruiters finally have access to the same types of information as marketers, its becoming more clear that recruiting is marketing. Whereas the marketing world immediately saw the value in this data and latched onto technologies that could leverage the information, the recruiting world is just catching up. The proliferation of CRMs has revolutionized marketing and business development. Creating and maintaining relationships has always been part of a sound business strategy, but that nebulous process has now been operationalized through software like Salesforce. There is a reason the CRM software market has boomed to over $20 billion...it works. Personalizing the process to maintain constant contact and build relationships has been shown to be extremely effective in converting leads to sales.
Mobile user access to ERP and other back office systems has become a core requirement as organizations seek operational efficiency and deepening customer engagement. Without mobile access, system users are disadvantaged by needing to return to a desktop, often after a job is completed, to enter data relating to that job and get information about other jobs. Frequently that information is not entered at all and become more of a hindrance to user adaption of your ERP investment.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees productivity were boosted.

As the information age matures, data has become the most
powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses
have embraced digital transformation, often staking their
reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While
decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of
data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the
pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers cant
trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and
customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not
correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove
harmful to the integrity of business decisions.
In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data
access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without
ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders
cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality
Enterprises increasingly operate in a digitally interconnected world where third parties like suppliers, customers, channel partners, and others are often directly connected to their internal IT systems, and where their underlying IT infrastructure may be owned and managed by an outside organization. These business relationships can knowingly or unknowingly introduce different types of risks that need to be identified and managed as if these third parties were part of the enterprise itself. Recorded Future's latest risk intelligence offering enables threat intelligence teams to better understand, monitor, and measure their real-time exposure to these third-party risks. Armed with this information, organizations can better assess and prioritize risk mitigation actions.
The pace of automation in the contact center is accelerating as it moves from IVR and routing to
artifi cial intelligence and bots. With the digitization of contact center operations, the status quo is being
upended. Technological advances in robotic process automation (RPA), AI, and machine learning (ML)
for both customer and employee interactions are literally changing the face of customer care.
Simple, repetitive tasks dont need a person to do them anymore. Chatbots and self-service
knowledgebases put the control in customers hands to resolve their own issues quickly. Information
from across the business can more easily be accessed, integrated, and analyzed to streamline backoffi ce and customer-facing functions. Companies are creating digital worker factories that leverage AI
and ML to improve their business.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years agocollecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customers home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
Technology has provided its share of pros and cons for the financial services industry. On one hand, it has created a level of transparency between customers and their financial health, giving them access to their account information and enabling them to apply for loans, transfer funds, pay bills and withdraw funds with the click of a mouse or the push of a few buttons. On the other hand, it has changed consumers expectations regarding banking as a whole, expecting a level of service other online sites provide, such as immediate customer assistance and problem resolution.
Increasing your non-interest revenues without increasing customer fees that ultimately drive customers away can be a challenge.
The digital economy is opening up new ways to drive additional revenue from existing customers. The same technical innovations are also opening up new ways to communicate with customers about both digital and traditional offerings. But that results in customers becoming overwhelmed with advertising and marketing messages. They are forced to decide upfront who is providing relevant information and who to completely ignore. Ultimately, it comes down to trust.
Customers consider generic messages to be spam and learn to filter them out, even if they come from a known vendor. Over the long run, these types of marketing campaigns not only see diminishing returns, they can even damage your long-term relationship with customers and decrease revenues.
Micro-marketing overcomes the noise that traditional spam-marketing creates and establishes news levels of trust betwee
New market entrants are shifting the way the financial sector operates, new business models are changing customer expectations, and ever-changing client demographics are forcing businesses to adapt the way they work.
As we move into a decade of artificial intelligence (AI) and digital innovation, huge opportunities are opening up for the financial sector to combat these changes. But with this comes new challenges, and exponential increases in available information must be accompanied by smart tools and processes to make sense of it, ensure regulatory compliance, and add real value to clients.

Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
