When building the ideal customer experience, it will be important to have cohesive, convenient, and productive customer interactions, no matter what stage of the customer journey. Technology will no doubt be at the forefront to integrate these qualities into every customer interaction at scale.
Therefore, when choosing a customer care technology like an Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA), it is important to not simply implement technology just for the sake of technology, but to make sure that it is enhancing the overall customer experience.
We all know that the customer experience is a big deal. By
2020, customer experience will overtake price and product
as the key differentiator. But due to the complicated nature of integrating a large-scale, customer-facing technology like an IVA, many companies don’t know where to start or how to ensure they are creating the best possible virtual assistant.
We’ve compiled some key technologies and features that should be top of mind when assessing internal expertise or selecting an external vendor.

Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
Einige potenzielle Nutzer von Colocation-Datacenter empfinden die bewährte Verfahren zur Stromversorgung und Kühlung als einschränkend. Allerdings können effektive Nutzungsbedingungen Ausfallzeiten aufgrund von thermischer Abschaltung und menschlichem Versagen verkürzen, Kapazitätseinschränkungen aufgrund von unnötigem Energieverbrauch verringern und die Lebensdauer der anfänglichen Mietfläche verlängern und somit Kosten für zu groß dimensionierte Reserveflächen vermeiden. Dieses Dokument erläutert einige Ursachen für unnötigen Energieverbrauch, Kühlung und Flächennutzung in Datacentern für Colocation-Services und erläutert, wie Stromverteilung, Luftabsaugung und andere Verfahren die Verfügbarkeit und Effizienz in kompakten Racks steigern können. Es werden Beispiele für Nutzungsbedingungen gegeben, die zur Lösung dieser Probleme beitragen.
Colocation-Anbieter setzen sich mit Marktkräften auseinander, die sowohl große Chancen als auch bedeutende Herausforderungen darstellen – teilweise aus derselben Entwicklung. Die Anbieter müssen sich mit ständig wechselnden Käufergruppen auseinandersetzen, wobei CFOs und COOs eine zunehmend wichtige Rolle bei der Entscheidungsfindung spielen. Sie müssen auf neue Trends wie das Internet der Dinge und Cloud Computing eingehen, die sich sowohl positiv als auch negativ auf ihr Geschäft auswirken können.

Consumers have become more educated about the value of data and cyber risks associated with it. As consumer awareness increases so does their expectations of trust and digital security. Read now KPMG's report Trust in the time of disruption to understand the cybersecurity gap that exists between consumers and organisations, and what asset management and financial services firms as a whole can do to close the trust gap.
Welcome to KPMG’s third annual report tracking developments in China’s pension industry. This is a topic of great economic significance. As the world’s most populous country, China has an ageing society and is developing the infrastructure to take care of a growing number of elderly people. The topic also has business significance, especially for financial companies able to find opportunities in the fast-growing pension sector.
This report updates and builds on our findings from last year. That report identified sector convergence as one of the most distinct features of the Chinese pension industry, as well as highlighted several strategic themes that will influence its long-term development. In the pages that follow, we explain the most recent developments and their strategic implications.

"Security analysts have a tougher job than ever. New vulnerabilities and security attacks used to be a monthly occurrence, but now they make the headlines almost every day. It’s become much more difficult to effectively monitor and protect all the data passing through your systems. Automated attacks from bad bots that mimic human behavior have raised the stakes, allowing criminals to have machines do the work for them.
Not only that, these bots leave an overwhelming number of alert bells, false positives, and inherent stress in their wake for security practitioners to sift through. Today, you really need a significant edge when combating automated threats launched from all parts of the world.
Where to start? With spending less time investigating all that noise in your logs."
"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
Data centers are evolving. They are much more than the data storage facilities of the past—they are gateways to emerging markets and platforms from which businesses can expand their reach through greater connectivity. These evolutions require the deployment of secured IT platforms capable of supporting and treating a huge amount of data generated in real time. Learn how Interxion partnered with Schneider Electric to meet the needs of its customers and stay relevant in the rapidly evolving colocation market.
