Around the globe, voices clamoring for climate-aware investing and carbon controlsare increasing. Demand for ethical treatment of employees, customers and other stakeholders is also growing, as is indignation about poorly-managed companies.
Companies are subject to an increasing set of non-financial reporting requirements relating to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. A swathe of new requirements will soon impact the investment and lending appetites of EU financial institutions. Coupled with increasing investor demands, these new rules could have a profound impact on companies’ ability to raise capital, within the EU and beyond.
"SD-WAN largely exists today to support two key enterprise transformations: multicloud and the software-defined branch (SD-Branch).
Multicloud has changed the center of gravity for enterprise applications, and with that, has changed traffic patterns too. No longer does traffic need to flow to enterprise data center sites or central internet peering points and breakouts. That’s because most traffic from users and devices in the enterprise campus and branch today goes to cloud-based applications scattered across a host of clouds.
It’s neither economical nor efficient to haul traffic over WAN-dedicated links to a central enterprise site. So to optimize the cost and performance of multicloud-bound traffic, modern WAN edge routers, often called customer premises equipment (CPE), are now equipped with hybrid WAN links and routing. Hybrid WAN interfaces may include WAN provider-dedicated links such as MPLS, as well as direct internet links over xDSL, broadband and 4G/LTE wireless."
Automation in ERP, CMS and vendor management. Streamlined inventory and logistics management. Reduction in manual errors and an increase in quality and efficiency. All this and a lot more can happen to heal inefficiency and unproductivity at your Life Sciences enterprise. All it takes is a healthy dose of RPA. A must-read.
Data is the lifeblood of business success, but has been trapped in silos for too long. To unleash its value, analytics must transform from merely reporting on data to providing fuel for data-driven marketing.

Think back just 5 years ago. In 2014…
• The seminal DevOps book—Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project—was one year old
• Gartner predicted that 25% of Global 2000 enterprises would adopt DevOps to some extent by 20161
• "Continuous Testing” just started appearing in industry publications and conferences2
• Many of today’s popular test frameworks were brand new—or not yet released
• The term “microservices” was just entering our lexicon
• QC/UFT and ALM were still sold by HP (not even HPE yet)
• Only 30% of enterprise software testing was performed fully “in house”3
• There was no GDPR restricting the use of production data for software testing
• Packaged apps were typically updated on an annual or semi-annual basis and modern platforms like
SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce Lightning hadn’t even been announced
Times have changed—a lot. If the way that you’re testing hasn’t already transformed dramatically, it will soon.

Big Data- und Analytik-Workloads bringen für Unternehmen neue Herausforderungen mit sich. Die erfassten Daten stammen aus Quellen, die vor zehn Jahren noch gar nicht existierten. Es werden Daten von Mobiltelefonen, maschinengenerierte Daten und Daten aus Webseiten-Interaktionen erfasst und analysiert. In Zeiten knapper IT-Budgets wird die Lage zusätzlich dadurch verschärft, dass die Big Data-Volumen immer größer werden und zu enormen Speicherproblemen führen.
Das vorliegende White Paper informiert über die Probleme, die Big Data-Anwendungen für Storage-Systeme mit sich bringen, sowie darüber, wie die Auswahl der richtigen Storage-Infrastruktur Big Data- und Analytik-Anwendungen optimieren kann, ohne das Budget zu sprengen.

- Who is ultimately responsible for risk management?
- What metrics and KRIs should you track to measure the impact of your ERM program?

- How can technology be leveraged to maximize the value of an ERM program?

It’s become abundantly clear that the cloud is no longer the future— but the new normal. Enterprises rely on cloud computing for web-based meetings, email, file sharing, and more every day to reduce costs and administrative burdens while enhancing productivity.
With the wealth of benefits to be gained by moving to the cloud—including speed of deployment, cost-efficiencies, and easy scaling—it’s no wonder the shift toward all things virtual has been so pervasive and swift. What’s more, as the cloud has matured, the potential drawbacks that once made enterprises hesitant to make the move are disappearing. Security is now robust, application integration happens with ease, and reliability is a given, not a question mark.
So now that the cloud has become not just viable, but essential, to stay competitive in a rapidly changing world, it’s time to explore how the cloud can significantly improve your contact center operations and customer experiences. This paper will provide one compelling
According to the annual report on fraud and internet crime published by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a staggering total of more than $2.7 billion was lost through online fraud and financial crime in 2018, the last full year available. And according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), there were more than 1.4 million fraud reports in that same time period. Many of these fraud events involved brand impersonation or illegal activities conducted via a brand’s website. In other words, the trust and faith the public has in your brand can be used as a cover for illegal activities, making fraudsters’ schemes appear authentic or trustworthy.

With customers spending almost one-third of their days engaging with digital content and frequently engaging on multiple channels, developers need a better and faster way to create digitally engaging experiences across multiple channels. Yet despite the appeal of headless for developers, a headless-only CMS may not be the best approach. A better strategy for embracing new technology is taking a hybrid approach.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy.
