To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets
The Digital Trends 2019 survey closed with more than 12,500 responses worldwide!
The results are in for 2019 and once again, businesses have their sights set on improving customer experience. Data continues to dominate, with an understanding that smarter use will lead to greater rewards. Data ownership and compliance are top-of-mind. And technological advances are an exciting prospect for many. But some need more guidance to understand the benefits for their business. Discover what your top digital priorities for 2019 should be with the 2019 Digital Trends report by Econsultancy in association with Adobe.
Key topics that you’ll read more about in this year’s report:
• Optimising customer experience and delivering personalised experiences in real time.
• Using data better for smarter audience segmentation and targeting.
• Be wary of walled gardens. Control and own the data, and always be compliant.
• Automation is the future. Understand the benefits, learn how to use it.
Successful business in the 21st century is based on data: gathering it, managing it, leveraging it. The importance of data to create efficient and effective operations has grown exponentially in just a few years, tracking alongside the rapid proliferation of devices and the technological breakthroughs in networks and connectivity. Concepts like the Internet of Things (IoT) or Industry 4.0 have become as routine to EHS managers as duties related to employee health and safety.
However, while EHS managers may understand the essence of big data, putting those ideals into practice is a much harder task. The sheer amount of data generated and collected is the greatest barrier.

Video conferencing has long been thought of as the technology for the other half, something to be used by the Fortune 500 companies and executives in corner offices, the ones handling mergers and acquisitions and the like—not something that the average business could afford or make use of. In the last few years, however, a series of technological advances have changed that notion, making video conferencing not only a viable technology for businesses of all sizes but a necessity.

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
La Digital Transformation è diventata l'imperativo del business dal momento che gran parte degli aspetti dell'impegno economico è ormai digitale. In tutto il mondo, le aziende e le pubbliche amministrazioni stanno riprogettando le proprie infrastrutture tecnologiche per stare al passo con le richieste dei clienti, incentivare l'innovazione e rimanere competitive in un'economia digitale in continua evoluzione.
Una recente survey di PwC ha evidenziato che il 45% dei dirigenti aziendali e IT provenienti da 51 paesi ha indicato la crescita delle entrate attraverso la Digital Transformation come una delle priorità principali1. Per avere successo in questo scenario digitale caratterizzato da ritmi serrati, le aziende devono trasformare le infrastrutture IT e raggiungere così nuovi livelli di flessibilità e reattività.

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 IT leaders don’t have the time nor the resources to effectively respond to the needs of their ever-demanding workforce. It’s time for CIOs to stop running the IT department and start transforming the business; only through transforming the way in which they deploy and service the workforce can CIOs accomplish this paramount task.
Organizations must now embrace a future that improves the workforce experience in order to offload cumbersome and time-intensive tasks. With IT becoming more integrated and a strategic partner to the lines of business (LOBs), offloading and embracing new technologies that enable employee experience is a logical step.

The rapid rate of mobile adoption provides today’s users with nearly unlimited access to data and information anytime, anywhere. While “always on” users represent a tremendous opportunity for businesses to increase engagement, revenue, and customer loyalty, they also create unprecedented mobile delivery challenges. In this e-book, we will delve into these challenges and learn how to master them by optimizing for fast APIs, mobile apps, and mobile sites. But before we do that, let’s start our mobile story with some perspective: Approximately half of you reading this e-book will do so on mobile. That fact alone should be a compelling enough reason to keep reading, but in case it’s not, the following data illustrates the impact mobile growth has had on our technological landscape.
Doing business across borders presents a whole host of unfamiliar challenges to today’s merchant.

In this report, we explore some of the core challenges businesses today face in their quest to succeed in global commerce.
We offer an overview of how unified commerce can both resolve these issues and offer new advantages and standards of best practice, enabling your business to meet the demands
of tomorrow’s customer, no matter their location, preferred payment method, and mode of contact.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless
tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least
on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have
begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a
connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots
are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while
some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.
Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a
sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.

In this paper, you will find the results of a survey commissioned by CA Technologies to understand the readiness of organizations to meet the compliance needs of the GDPR. Given the GDPR is set to have wide-ranging implications for the type of data that can be used in non-production environments, CA Technologies wanted in particular to understand how companies are planning for the GDPR and what processes and technology is needed to help them.
Any organization wishing to process big data from newly identified data sources, needs to first determine the characteristics of the data and then define the requirements that need to be met to be able to ingest, profile, clean,transform and integrate this data to ready it for analysis. Having done that, it may well be the case that existing tools may not cater for the data variety, data volume and data velocity that these new data sources bring. If this occurs then clearly new technology will need to be considered to meet the needs of the business going forward.
