At HP, we know that in retail and hospitality environments, customers expect a fast and simple way to find information or to complete a transaction. The physical point-of-sale experience must rise to meet the demands of retailers through high aesthetic value and peak performance.
From an elegant hotel to a small boutique, a quick-service restaurant to an outdoor garden center—all of these locations require a point-of-sale device that meets specific needs while appealing to any user.

• Do the tools provide the means for improved collaboration between engineering and manufacturing, and incorporate manufacturing best practices?
• Can all data and program information reside in one database or platform that is accessible concurrently by all enterprise stakeholders—from design engineering to the shop floor?
• Is it possible to perform real-time multi-disciplinary simulations to improve performance and manufacturing targets?

Your sales forecast is an essential part of your business plan.
This guide will show you step by step how to set up a sales
forecast that works.
Setting up a sales forecast allows you to anticipate your future sales
volume and make more informed decisions about your cashflow.
Imagine you are selling ski apparel. Obviously, you are going to sell more
in the winter and less in the summer. That’s a simple example
of making a forecast - it helps you to predict future demand in order to

offers in order to maintain sales.
With this ebook you will learn to:
• Design your sales forecast
• Know who should participate in the design
• Anticipate the problems you’ll come across along the way
• Analyse the data correctly
These are interesting and challenging times to be in business. Digital forces, such as the cloud, big data, mobility, and mobile apps, are disrupting tried-and-true business models, as well as entire industries.
These transformational advances are producing complexity, while workers are demanding simplicity. They require centralized infrastructures to keep information safe, even as agility and flexibility rule the day.
It appears that agility and efficiency are coveted by basically everyone involved in protecting and managing data- especially those people struggling to simultaneously keep up with sprawl and meet ever-heightening expectations. One answer to these storage-related challenges centers on introducing a software-defined layer that abstracts and normalizes underlying storage repositories while still enabling already-deployed best of breed componentry to do what it does best.

There can be no doubt that the architecture for analytics has evolved over its 25-30 year history. Many recent innovations have had significant impacts on this architecture since the simple concept of a single repository of data called a data warehouse.
There is one certainty with cybersecurity and that is nothing is certain. Take for example the role the endpoint plays in keeping an enterprise secure. While many cybersecurity professionals are relatively certain that endpoints are locked down and security policies are being enforced, the simple fact of the matter is that endpoints prove to be the root of most compromises.
System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.
