In our latest survey report, we explore the growth challenges facing businesses and HR leaders in a rapidly changing landscape.
We surveyed over 500 HR leaders in leading organisations to explore their views on these challenges, and to find out how they are supporting people and leveraging people data to help them achieve their growth goals.
The survey revealed that:
• It’s the war for talent, again. The greatest challenges for growing companies are winning the war for talent, growing productivity and improving workforce visibility.
• Fast-growth companies share common traits in the way they manage and engage their people—we call this being a People Company.
• There’s a disconnect between managers and employees in terms of what being a People Company means.
• Becoming a People Company is a journey, with many organisations some way from embracing all aspects.
• People Science is a thing: there’s an appetite to leverage people data and analytics, but there are blockers in the way.
The way we work has completely transformed. New technology is changing how, where and when we work. In this new landscape, businesses face challenges around growth, talent acquisition and productivity. Employers need to embrace new technology to get ahead in
this new world of work, and put people at the heart of their strategy. However, HR and People leaders are in fierce competition for that all-important slice of budget and that makes building the strongest business case for technology investment vital.
This guide is designed to help HR and People leaders like you get the financial support you need. You’ll get practical, effective tips on:
• Understanding and explaining the true benefits of investing in a new HR system and likely return on investment
• Positioning HR as a leader of change throughout your business
• Ensuring your HR vision fits in with the business strategy
• Getting management and key stakeholder buy-in
• Building the strongest business case and the most powerful el
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
to new heights, commanding the attention of CEOs across all industries.
According to research recently published by McKinsey, more than three-quarters of Fortune 500 CEOs do not believe their companies are effective at attracting highly talented people. Of those CEOs who do consider their companies successful at attracting top talent, only 7% believe they are effective in retaining them.
In today’s hyperconnected labor market, recruitment and retention are not separate problems; they are two sides of the same coin. Companies that have adopted integrated strategies for recruitment and retention have a significant competitive advantage. But according to McKinsey’s data, this group represents only a small fraction of the Fortune 500. The rest of the HR universe is under tremendous
A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?

In the financial services industry (FSI), high-performance compute infrastructure is not optional; it’s a prerequisite for survival. No other industry generates more data, and few face the combination of challenges that financial services does: a rapidly changing competitive landscape, a complex regulatory environment, tightening margin pressure, exponential data growth, and demanding performance service-level agreements (SLAs).

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support
providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.
If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.

Web applications are valuable tools for businesses of all sizes.

Hyperconverged infrastructure is radically shaking up the IT landscape, creating huge operational and economic benefits.

IT organizations need to do their homework to ensure they are selecting true hyperconverged solutions.
