Disruption to data availability has the ability to cripple an organisation, and in the consumer goods market, restricted access to data could cause goods to take longer to get to market. To prepare for data outages, it is imperative that businesses have effective backup and recovery solutions in place to minimise downtime and maintain functionality.
This case study examines how PT Wings Surya, a leader in the Indonesian consumer goods market, was able to increase business uptime, cut the time taken to run backup jobs from 8 to just 2 hours, and reduce backup costs by 60%.
AI innovation in retail starts with a tech-forward company culture, from C-suite stakeholders down to every employee. AI greatly enhances a retailer’s ability to harness data for better merchandising, marketing, and customer service. It will not only complement existing retail jobs but introduce brand new roles and skill sets into the human workforce.
We live in a data-driven world where businesses
increasingly expect data to flood through their networks
at optimum speeds to do their jobs better, smarter, and
faster. Today, 75% of the workplace is said to be the
millennial generation(1), and many believe that millennial
workers are addicted to the “instant gratification”
phenomenon. This is a generation that grew up with
texting, instant messaging, social media, and more, all at
their service to deliver conversations and information in
an instant. As the speed of our data-driven world
continues to increase, so are the expectations of
workers whose jobs rely on instant data-driven communications.
By the time most customers reach a human employee with a question, chances are they have
already researched online or tried to self-serve. This means employee transformation is required
to develop more sophisticated employees in the age of automation to solve more advanced
Because front-line jobs are becoming more complex, employees need to be tactical, technical, and
ready to emotionally handle these new types of interactions.
Recently, Lamont Exeter, head of Learning & Development at TTEC Digital, teamed up with Tim

and technology to create more sophisticated employees. Below are some key highlights from

A recent employee engagement survey by Achievers asked 1,224 employees from the U.S., Canada, UK, and Australia if they plan on looking for new jobs in 2019. The results were jarring: only 21% of North American employees are very engaged, yet most are not looking to leave their jobs. While this may seem like a positive trend, it actually indicates a major workplace complacency conundrum – one that could have a significantly negative effect on your bottom line
This report will explain the dangers of complacency in the workplace and share four target areas to address employee engagement, arguably one of the most critical business challenges
Small and medium businesses (SMB) are the backbone of America, generating annual revenues that can reach $8.1 million [based on SMB’s with less than 100 employees]. These SMBs employ up to 99.7 percent of all employees in America, and 39 percent of these employees fill high tech jobs. SMBs have advantages over larger organizations when recruiting top talent to help drive their small enterprise. This white paper will further examine the essential components and justifications that CEOs, hiring managers and business owners alike should consider when developing and deploying their hiring strategy and processes.
The possibilities for a career in Human Resources (HR) are vast. But, typically the path to the top HR management jobs is not a straight one. Moving up the HR ladder requires aligning your contributions to business objectives, developing ongoing mentor relationships and taking calculated risks.

7 Powerful Retention Strategies for SMBs
If businesses are to thrive in today’s economy, then ?nding and re-taining quali?ed employees must be a top priority. Frequent turnover can damage a company’s productivity, negatively affect employee morale, increase costs, and damage overall organizational perfor-mance. Conversely, retaining skilled workers who are committed to the company’s success, who feel a sense of ownership and satisfac-tion with their jobs, and who contribute the exceptional effort that delights customers, creates true competitive advantages. Those powerful payoffs make employee retention a compelling imperative for the leaders of small and medium?sized businesses.
Every organization strives for a workforce that is engaged, inspired, and motivated to perform at its best day in and day out. But what is the reality?
According to Gallup, only 13 percent of all employees worldwide today are engaged in their jobs — an alarming statistic given the importance of the workforce in fueling growth and meeting other key enterprise goals. Employees are typically an organization’s most vital (and expensive) asset, and when they are disengaged and/or disenfranchised, the ripple effects across the business can impact your profitability and branding.
In fact, each employee generation — and each individual — has unique needs and expectations regarding work. So how do you engage and inspire them? It requires a creative and differentiated approach that accounts for the unique characteristics and requirements of each generation.
Fortunately, new human capital management (HCM) technologies are available today that can help you optimize employee engagement across a

Knowledge workers today have a rich portfolio of team collaboration tools to help them get their jobs done, starting with email and encompassing texting, file sharing, online chat and message boards, social media and video conferencing. Yet collaboration across these tools can be a frustrating experience, due to the complexity of the technology and lack of integration. The good news: the application of emerging technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) enables more people to connect when and how they need to. And that makes for more productive teams.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

Millennials are reshaping the world of work through their knowledge of new technologies, work habits, and attitudes of the 21st-century workplace. At the same time, IT departments are working to add flexibility to the way they are supporting the Millennial worker. Yet it’s not just about IT providing the right tools and devices to its employees so they can get their jobs done effectively; IT needs to offer an overall workplace ecosystem that is secure and innovative. However, there are worrying gaps between what IT provides and what the different types of workers need.
Whether you know it as Industry 4.0, the 4th Industrial Revolution, or Smart Industry, Manufacturing is going through a deep transformation, with changes that are centered around digitalization. While most industries are already on this digitalization path, the disruption is more visible and pronounced in manufacturing because it is expanding virtual data and processes into environments that have been fundamentally about physical products. This transformation has already started, and its impact is expected to be massive. Technical, economic, and social changes are expected across the whole manufacturing ecosystem, with jobs shifting from offshoring back to nearshoring. Strong technology elements driving this digital revolution include 3D printing, robotizing and automation, smart factory with IoT and machine learning, and supply chain digitization. Their impact is profound.

Technology is transforming how we do our jobs, and employees expect the business to accommodate
their work habits.
› Companies must identify roles and profiles and support their needs. Not every employee will
require the same devices to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively. It is paramount for
organizations to seek out specific devices to enable different worker personas.
› IT must become a trusted partner to keep security top of mind. Employees showed a lack of trust
toward IT when facing an issue with their device or ecosystem. It is imperative for IT to become part of
the solution and not the problem; otherwise, workers will find ways to go around security policies and
fix problems on their own, putting the firm at even more risk.
› Employees require a more complete ecosystem. Employees need not only devices to get their jobs
done effectively but an entire ecosystem as well. Without this, businesses will fall further behind in a
