To successfully navigate workforce transformation, you need to consider both IT and end-user needs. Upgrading your hardware, and “right-sizing” it to fit your workforce only solves half the issue. On this video meetup we discuss the logistics, both operational and security that you’ll need to consider when managing your organization’s PC lifecycle, as well as how Dell can help get you there. This panel includes, Ian Haynes, Product Marketing Manager for Dell EMC and Jason Christensen, Dell EMC Product Development Manager.

: Both public and private organizations acknowledge that managing the PC life cycle becomes more complicated and expensive as the variety of PC devices and employee workstyles increase. In order to be fully productive, different groups of employees have different needs in terms of end-user device hardware, software, and configuration. Dell and Intel® commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by leveraging Intel® vPro and Dell’s ProDeploy Plus and ProSupport Plus services.
Today, IT leaders address the PC lifecycle across a continuum from control to transformation. Control is geared to optimization, while transformation focuses on the business impact of technology. Though the two approaches differ, they are not in opposition. They strive for the same goals and face similar challenges. As IT leaders provide their workforce with the tools to carry out the corporate mission, they should develop a PC lifecycle strategy that encompasses the key organizational needs of systems management, end-user productivity, business innovation and data-centric security. Read this Dell whitepaper to learn more about the findings of a recent Forrester Consulting study, “Digital Transformers Innovate, Digital Controllers Optimize”. This paper will help clarify the PC lifecycle continuum, from the basics of control to the advanced levels of transformation, so you will be better equipped to determine the needs of your organization on that spectrum.
In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.

Data breaches have become a fact of life for organizations of all sizes, in every industry and in many parts of the globe. While many organizations anticipate that at some point a non-malicious or malicious data breach will occur, the focus of this study is to understand the steps organizations are taking—or not taking--to deal with the aftermath of a breach or what we call the Post Breach Boom.
Sponsored by Solera Networks, The Post Breach Boom study was conducted by Ponemon Institute to understand the differences between non-malicious and malicious data breaches and what lessons are to be learned from the investigation and forensic activities organizations conduct following the loss or theft of sensitive and confidential information. The majority of respondents in this study believe it is critical that a thorough post-breach analysis and forensic investigation be conducted following either a non-malicious or malicious security breach.

Millennials are different than any other generation before them. They are making major decisions later in life—from choosing a career, getting married, buying a home and yes, investing in life insurance. And while they are more tech savvy than their predecessors and want to make purchasing from any device of their choosing, they still value face-to-face interaction, contrary to popular belief. Insurance and financial companies need to understand the unique dynamics of the millennial generation in order to better service and exceed expectations of this growing consumer base. They need to meet their tech-savvy expectations, while also understanding Millennials still value one-to-one attention. In fact, 48% of Millennials said they would be more likely to make a speedy financial or insurance-related decision if a person who they trusted took the time to explain the benefits and risks. Download this whitepaper and learn how to better tap into the growing millennial market.

Today's marketplace is hypercompetitive. Brands compete for attention, hoping they can turn that attention into a loyal customer. But too many companies are not able to build a long-term relationship that results in a loyal customer because the customer had a poor experience.
To remain competitive, brands need to create compelling integrated customer experiences that continue to evolve and reduce the friction between company and customer over the lifetime of the relationship.
This IDC Vendor Spotlight discusses the current challenge that organizations face in providing a differentiating customer support experience and the potential that technology offers as a lever to improve the customer support experience.
Security is everyone’s job today, from consumers, to system administrators, to executives. If you are doing business, you need to elevate the priority of security across your organization and data center. Over the years, cybercriminals have gotten more advanced and better funded. They are entire teams of highly trained hackers, and they have built it into a very profitable business. Cybercrime is big business. In many cases, states have built their own cyberattack teams. These teams are no less important to their state strategies than their army or navy. And just like these cyber-attack teams are prepared to attack anyone, you too must be prepared to defend against anyone. Whether you know it or not, you are in a cyber war. You need to be prepared.

Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are moving beyond the traditional idea of being a work-based intervention program solely aimed at resolving employees’ personal problems.
Nowadays, EAPs are preventative by nature. They provide important work life resources like counselling, coaching, guidance, and financial and legal support for employees and family members. The focus has expanded from personal problems to overall well-being.

Self-care is a complex concept, and there are many misconceptions about it. Some suggest it can be selfish, that it involves expensive, lavish things. Some even consider it to be a sign of weakness.
However, these misconceptions are the opposite of the truth. People who prioritize their personal health and well-being are better able to serve themselves and those around them. In other words, it’s a selfless act.

For many years, an organization’s approach to employee mental well- being was simply “leave your problems at the door”. But those days are gone. Not only are mental and emotional health issues losing their stigma, but businesses are realizing that failure to understand and fulfill employees’ total well-being requirements, such a physical and financial well-being, ultimately leads to reduced productivity and output.
Cloud has become a crucial foundation for digital transformation (DX) initiatives and is shaping the IT strategy of enterprises today. Companies are extending their IT infrastructure into the cloud for running business-critical applications, developing new applications, and delivering new cloud-based services. Applications are the lifeblood of modern enterprises. They are the foundation on which businesses maintain their existing revenue streams while examining ways to create new ones. A sound application strategy is a must for frms to be successful in expanding their competitive differentiation in the digital economy. Operating systems (OSs) provide a common foundational layer that enables IT to run current and new generations of applications in traditional IT environments, on its own private cloud, and in public clouds and utilize a variety of computing options such
as bare metal, virtualization, and containerization. The increased reliance of IT on the cloud has accelerated the
The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.
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.
