In most cases, your physical data center will not disappear as these growth trends play out. Instead, it will evolve into a hybrid environment, incorporating a mixture of physical and virtual computing technologies—including both public and private clouds. You’ll face even more challenging security risks within these hybrid environments than you have protecting your physical data center today. And you won’t be alone with these challenges when making the shift to a hybrid data center architecture.

E se i responsabili della sicurezza potessero prevedere il futuro? Se sapessero che un attacco è imminente, potrebbero bloccarlo o almeno mitigarne l’impatto e si adopererebbero per mettere in sicurezza le risorse che più necessitano protezione. In effetti gli addetti alla sicurezza sono in grado di vedere cosa si profila all’orizzonte: gli indizi sono molti (ed evidenti).
Globalization has presented business leaders with numerous opportunities and challenges to become more competitive and innovative and to drive more value. These opportunities and challenges seem to increase in number and complexity every year whether it is the challenge of scaling limited human and technological resources, sourcing from low-cost countries halfway around the world, or going to market with the latest product innovations.
Today's supply chains typically include multiple partners, with services and sourcing managed across several organizations and across the world. Companies are increasing their use of third-party suppliers in the execution of key strategic imperatives. This leads to complexity in the supply chain and increased scale and intensity of operations, all of which contribute to global warming.
Last week, SAP Ariba held a human trafficking roundtable event at its SAP Hudson Yards New York City
offices. The roundtable focused on the United Nations Global Compact that adopted 17 sustainable
development goals for its 2030 agenda two years ago. While most individuals and businesses believe
slavery was abolished years ago, there are currently over 40 million forced laborers worldwide. The
United Nations Global Compact initiative is assisting in highlighting the problem of modern slavery,
forced labor, and noncompliance with human rights. And this initiative lines up quite well with
procurement and global supply chains.
For years, high-tech companies have relied on manual, linear, design-to-deliver processes when selecting, managing, and collaborating with suppliers of components and raw materials. But the digital marketplace has transformed the nature of how business gets done. Digital networks are disrupting business and changing the nature of direct spend management – and just in time to deliver new efficiencies and cost savings needed to compete in today’s complex marketplace.
As new models of manufacturing and retail become prevalent, new sets of challenges await adopters: challenges in supplier selection, sourcing, and planning disconnects, and lack of visibility into inventory availability. Leading manufacturers and retailers are embracing new technologies to source and collaborate with suppliers of direct materials.
Over the next 10 years, companies will face more opportunity and disruption than ever before. Digital transformation is already helping companies redefine their business models, operating processes, and work – and this trend will accelerate as powerful technologies mature. Given that up to 65% of the value of a company’s products or services is derived from its suppliers1, procurement will play a leading role in enabling this transformation.
It is shocking to imagine the world where our use of plastic is leading to:
• Seas containing 500 times more microplastic particles than stars in our galaxy
• Plastic fibers being present in 83% of the world’s tap water and 90% of the world’s most popular bottled water brands
• Widespread contamination of fish in our food chain
• Seas with more plastic than fish by 2050
This is the reality of the situation we are facing today, and yet it only scratches the surface of the challenges ahead of us.
Procurement organizations are moving in substantial numbers to implement integrated technology suites in areas like
source-to-contract and purchase-to-pay. A new generation of technology has made it possible for these technologies
to move to the cloud, simplifying maintenance and administration. A recent Hackett Group study analyzed the use
of e-sourcing suites to uncover trends, benefits and drawbacks to unifying these processes in one solution. For
organizations already invested in optimizing sourcing execution efforts, the arguments for moving to an integrated
suite are compelling.
