The term Industry 4.0 presupposes the passing of three major shifts in how businesses approached manufacturing throughout modern history, tracing its roots as far back as the 19th century:
Industry 1.0: The Industrial Revolution redefines human limitations by harnessing the power of water and steam.
Industry 2.0: Electricity pushes people and machines even further as manufacturing grows in scale and scope.
Industry 3.0: The modern computer opens the door for automation
This is arguably the most unsettling time in history to be a CIO. The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace with advances in social media, mobility and big data. The proliferation of advanced robotics is just around the corner and the Internet of Things is connecting even the most mundane objects to the internet—and probably the corporate network. Back in the 1990s, most computer hackers were interested in gaining access to networks purely for kudos among their peers. Today hackers have monetized their skills and make their living from finding vulnerabilities in IT networks.

"With the introduction of Oracle Database In-Memory and servers with the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors Oracle delivers an architecture where analytics are run on live operational databases and not on data subsets in data warehouses. Decision-making is much faster and more accurate because the data is not a stale subset. And for those moving enterprise applications to the cloud, Real-time analytics of the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors are available both in a private cloud on SPARC servers or in Oracle’s Public cloud in the SPARC cloud compute service.
Moving to the Oracle Public Cloud does not compromise the benefits of SPARC solutions. Some examples of utilizing real time data for business decisions include: analysis of supply chain data for order fulfillment and supply optimization, analysis of customer purchase history for real time recommendations to customers using online purchasing systems, etc.
Perhaps more than any programming language, Java continues to have a profound impact on how people navigate today’s world. Java’s functionality is responsible for setting a great deal of what users expect in terms of performance from their internet accessible devices.
The history of Java is more than two decades long and the language continues to grow and adapt in response to evolving consumer and business expectations. Throughout all of these changes, however, the performance of Java applications remains a paramount concern for developers.
Longi Engineering was engaged to assist a Private Equity Firm in implementing a SharePoint deal management system as an additional component to their existing on premise SharePoint server solution. The organization faced multiple challenges in that they did not possess an efficient technology solution that allowed them to manage their deals and associated history. One of the organization’s goals was to create a centralized, easily accessible dashboard interface from which they could rapidly determine the status of a deal as well as manage their deals. Their deal lifecycle had multiple stages depending on whether a deal was New, in a diligence phase, on Hold or Dead.
Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster than at any time in history. It used to take decades to disrupt a market, but natively digital companies such as Uber and Airbnb have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years.
One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is becoming an agile organization—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. This shift to being an agile business has now become a top initiative for IT and business leaders. However, business agility cannot be achieved without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology to make IT more agile in 2014, according to ZK Research.

Despite increased awareness and focus on defending against targeted attacks from both business and security leaders, organizations continue to be breached and suffer the consequences. Many of today’s security investments are simply not aligned to defend against these targeted threat vectors. Advanced threat detection and response should not be a point solution but rather a combination of technologies and core competencies. Detecting and responding to advanced threats should involve tight integration of multiple security technologies, network analysis and visibility (NAV) tools, the ability to automatically generate content such as security rules and signatures, context on attacker history, and overall customization and flexibility to ensure that the solution is fine-tuned for your specific IT environment.

Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.

Sebasticook Valley Health’s Emergency Department found that when it came to obtaining medication history, DrFirst’s MedHx(SM) solution provided vast improvements over the built-in feed from their integrated electronic medical records system. The hospital did a side by side comparison of MedHx(SM) and their existing feed, and determined that MedHx(SM) provided superior results, which reduced staff time spent on medication reconciliation, improved patient safety and enabled the hospital pharmacy, as well as doctors and nurses, to be more proactive in pulling medication history upon patient admission.

Making predictions is a risky activity. Making predictions in the utility industry can be perilous. History is filled with missed or prematurely exuberant pronouncements of the future of utilities and energy. For example, in the late 20th century, many predicted that the world’s oil supply had reached peak production and would become scarce. Instead, shale gas and oil are in abundance. In the 1990s, people predicted that fuel cells and hydrogen would dominate the landscape by 2010, another illustration that predictions can fail to reach their promise.

Personalization works. Brands know this. That’s why they use information like customer names, relevant content, and purchasing history to make consumers feel special.
But is this enough for today’s empowered consumers?
No—it still treats consumers as a small drop in a big bucket of generic marketing communications. It’s repetitive and stale. It’s simply not enough.
