Think back just 5 years ago. In 2014…
• The seminal DevOps book—Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project—was one year old
• Gartner predicted that 25% of Global 2000 enterprises would adopt DevOps to some extent by 20161
• "Continuous Testing” just started appearing in industry publications and conferences2
• Many of today’s popular test frameworks were brand new—or not yet released
• The term “microservices” was just entering our lexicon
• QC/UFT and ALM were still sold by HP (not even HPE yet)
• Only 30% of enterprise software testing was performed fully “in house”3
• There was no GDPR restricting the use of production data for software testing
• Packaged apps were typically updated on an annual or semi-annual basis and modern platforms like
SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce Lightning hadn’t even been announced
Times have changed—a lot. If the way that you’re testing hasn’t already transformed dramatically, it will soon.
And the pace and scope of disruption will continue to escalate throughout the fo
When it comes to embracing new technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), it’s easy for companies who are curious
to be influenced by extreme examples of success or failure. Indeed, a lot of the stories of failure and disappointment
are often based on exaggerated expectations. However, such stories are not necessarily helpful or instructive for a
company who is considering AI for its business. Instead, a more realistic analysis of the challenges and opportunities
at play is in order. In this white paper, we will analyze both sides of the AI issue and help you discover the right way to
approach your AI journey.
It’s become abundantly clear that the cloud is no longer the future— but the new normal. Enterprises rely on cloud computing for web-based meetings, email, file sharing, and more every day to reduce costs and administrative burdens while enhancing productivity.
With the wealth of benefits to be gained by moving to the cloud—including speed of deployment, cost-efficiencies, and easy scaling—it’s no wonder the shift toward all things virtual has been so pervasive and swift. What’s more, as the cloud has matured, the potential drawbacks that once made enterprises hesitant to make the move are disappearing. Security is now robust, application integration happens with ease, and reliability is a given, not a question mark.
So now that the cloud has become not just viable, but essential, to stay competitive in a rapidly changing world, it’s time to explore how the cloud can significantly improve your contact center operations and guest experiences. This paper will provide one compelling r
Today’s hospitality professionals compete on customer experience
and this trend will define the shape and scope of contact
centers well into the next decade. To deliver the level of
seamless experiences that customers expect, contact
centers will need to harness all the advantages technology
can offer – specifically, the cloud – to create an “intelligent
cloud contact center” that utilizes machine learning and
real-time data analysis.
So, step one is to move your contact center to the cloud. ASAP.
Once you are operating a cloud contact center, the next step is to start leveraging everything this enables you to do. This is where the “Intelligent Cloud Contact Center” comes into play.”
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
Duranleau of SAP Litmos in a webinar to discuss ways that companies can combine learning
and technology to create more sophisticated employees. Below are some key highlights from

A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with implementation of SAP Business Objects Analytics solutions, Forrester interviewed four organizations with multiple years of experience using these analytics solutions from SAP across one or more of the following key analytics areas: planning, business intelligence, and predictive analytics. A composite, or representative, organization was developed to provide the conclusions of this cost and benefit analysis.

Companies across the globe are all facing the same economic headwinds: business change in the form of competitive threats and new opportunities is coming at an unprecedented pace. The watchword for meeting these challenges is innovation – both in terms of business processes as well as the underlying technology that enables those processes.
The sum of the experiences discussed in this report showcase how SAP S/4HANA, running on-premise or in the cloud, can form the basis for a broad-based business transformation that does not require a big bang implementation to succeed.
As the global business world shifts to all digital, real-time operations, the legacy two-tier ERP architecture so many businesses have relied on to bridge headquarters with subsidiaries can no longer compete effectively. A simple and comprehensive answer exists in SAP S/4HANA. Available in cloud and on-premise, SAP S/4HANA gives organizations the ability to utilize the same product family across a multi-tier deployment.
The SAP HANA platform provides a powerful unified foundation for storing, processing, and analyzing structured and unstructured data. It funs on a single, in-memory database, eliminating data redundancy and speeding up the time for information research and analysis.
