People analytics is increasingly on the agenda for organisations. With the rise of workplace technology allowing leaders to track employees’ performance, productivity and wellbeing, we partnered with the CIPD to survey over 3,000 business professionals to understand how people analytics is being used.
And the results are in. 65% of respondents who work in an organisation with a strong people analytics culture, say their business performance is strong compared to competitors.
As well as outlining the key opportunities leaders can capitalise on, this report covers:
- How different professions are using people data
- The various types of people data that are being used
- How people analytics adds value to organisations
- What the future holds for people data
In this Argyle Executive Forum webinar replay, leading HR executives across industries provide expert insight and recommendations for building an analytics strategy and putting a data foundation in place.

The wait is over. Here at T-Systems, we are proud to present the findings of CXP Group - a leading independent European research and advisory firm in the field of digital, software and IT services. Their new “Digital Industrial Transformation with the Internet of Things” report examines the dynamic range of opportunities that IoT holds for businesses and explores the challenges of integrating existing data processes with those that are IoT enabled.
The report is the result of the feedback cultivated from interviews with senior business and IT decision-makers responsible for creating and running innovation strategies at 250 large-scale European manufacturers. The data has been disseminated by region, strategies, pain points, IoT adoption, intention, investment etc. and provides readers with a detailed examination of what industrial businesses look for most from IoT.
The report provides a fascinating unearthing of influencing factors for IoT readiness and digitization as a whole. Using

In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,
Powerful data protection in a converged appliance that is easy to deploy and manage — at the lowest cost-to-protect.
The integrated appliance brings together protection storage and software, search, and analytics — plus simplified system management and cloud readiness. And, the IDPA System Manager, with its clean, intuitive interface, provides a comprehensive view of data protection infrastructure from a single dashboard.

A user initiates the call and selects the source language, such as Spanish. (In this example, assume that the target language is set to English.) As the user is talking to the support representative, the audio is converted to text using the Speech to Text service. Then using Language Translator, the text is translated to English.
English language text is then sent to the Text to Speech service as input. The output audio message is what the support representative hears. All of this happens in near real time. The text from Speech to Text and the Language Translator service also can be stored in a database for analytics. The same process is repeated in reverse for the audio message sent by support personnel.

Using IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities, companies can quickly differentiate their customer service quality by being more pro active and responsive to customer needs. Simply put, chatbots and virtual agents are the future of customer interactions. Building apps from scratch that incorporate natural language processing, speech to text recognition, visual recognition, analytics, and artificial intelligence requires broad expertise in these disciplines, large staffs, and a huge financial commitment. Making use of IBM Watson cognitive services brings these capabilities in-house quickly and without the capital investment that would be needed to develop the technologies within an organization.

Companies are pursuing digital transformation. The goal is to improve customer value, operate with greater efficiency and agility, and increase innovation. But as companies leverage new workflows, security has not kept pace, and cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated. This white paper describes a security paradigm for today’s hostile environment: zero trust.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202
The Internet of Things (IoT) didn’t just connect everything everywhere; It laid the groundwork for the next industrial revolution.
Connected devices sending data was only one achievement of the IoT—but one that helped solve the problem of data spread across countless silos that was not collected because it was too voluminous and/or too expensive to analyze.
Now, with advances in cloud computing and analytics, cheaper and more scalable factory solutions are available. This, in combination with the cost and size of sensors continuously being reduced, supplies the other achievement: the possibility for every organization to digitally transform.
Using a Smart Factory system, all relevant data is aggregated, analyzed, and acted upon. Sensors, devices, people, and processes are part of a connected ecosystem providing:
• Reduced downtime
• Minimized surplus and defects • Deep insights
• End-to-end real-time visibility
Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC), have broad potential to provide huge business value, while simultaneously presenting potentially overwhelming challenges. The rapid technology changes supporting SMAC and the overall complexity involved demand a systematic approach to building out your SMAC capability.

In order to understand this topic, we conducted interviews with 11 executives representing a range of roles and perspectives, including consumer packaged goods companies, financial services organizations, and agencies.
