During his talk James McCormick will describe the vision and need for digital intelligence; the approach needed to make it a strategic initiative, and ultimately, how it will provide a competitive advantage.
Cisco and Amazon Web Services (AWS) believe not only in making it simple to connect to the cloud, but also to protect your cloud services. Security is not just an on-premises or a cloud thing. It’s every-“thing” and everywhere. Gaining pervasive security means you need visibility across your entire IT environment to help you effectively identify and mitigate security threats.
Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud provides scalable visibility and delivers secure network behavioral analysis across on-premises and AWS environments to help identify anomalous activity that could indicate a security threat. This self-learning security solution continually refines its behavioral models as it monitors your environment, ultimately improving its functionality and reducing the costs required for manual security checks and updates.

Restaurant technologies have transformed drastically over the past decade, however there have been several misconceptions about the impact big data can have on restaurant operations. According to a Hospitality Technology study, only 23% of restaurants have confidence in overall tech innovation. When it comes to the state of technology many restaurants are still stuck with disconnected architecture, complex legacy systems, lack of visibility, and high maintenance costs.
These challenges ultimately intimidate restaurant operators to outdated systems and processes that significantly limit their business growth. This ebook looks at the four pressing challenges and presents one unifying solution.

Part of the “new normal” where data and cloud applications are concerned is the ability to handle multiple types of data models that exist in the application and persist each in a single datastore. This data management capability is called a “multi-model” database.
Chances are you are getting bogged down by various data models that require support — key-value, tabular, JSON/document and graph. This not only raises your operational expenses, but also slows down your time to market and ultimately revenue growth.
Download this free white paper and explore the multi-model concept, its rationale, and how DataStax Enterprise (DSE) is the only database that can help accelerate building and powering distributed, responsive and intelligent cloud applications across multiple data models.
The primary objective of any financial transformation project is to achieve process improvements by improving the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of financial information, ultimately enhancing shareholder value.
Take the example of the close process. It would be incredibly simple to shorten the process by adding more people, however, is this an efficient way to reduce the number of days to close? On the right, the Hackett Group displays that best in class companies actually can be seen closing in fewer days, with greater automation and significant lower audit fees, emphasizing the idea that you really can do more with less.
Increasing your non-interest revenues without increasing customer fees that ultimately drive customers away can be a challenge.
The digital economy is opening up new ways to drive additional revenue from existing customers. The same technical innovations are also opening up new ways to communicate with customers about both digital and traditional offerings. But that results in customers becoming overwhelmed with advertising and marketing messages. They are forced to decide upfront who is providing relevant information and who to completely ignore. Ultimately, it comes down to trust.
Customers consider generic messages to be spam and learn to filter them out, even if they come from a known vendor. Over the long run, these types of marketing campaigns not only see diminishing returns, they can even damage your long-term relationship with customers and decrease revenues.
Micro-marketing overcomes the noise that traditional spam-marketing creates and establishes news levels of trust betwee
City leaders around the world can consider the examples cited in this paper as they plan for the future.

While threat prevention continues to improve with the use of advanced techniques, adversaries are outpacing these advances requiring security teams to implement threat detection and response programs. Security teams are often addressing the process haphazardly, using disconnected point tools and manual processes that consume too many analysts and result in slow mean-time to detection and response. While EDR has enabled security teams to take important steps forward for detection and response, ultimately it can only look at the endpoints which limits the scope of threats that can be detected and if something is detected, limits the view of who and what is affected and thus, how best to respond. ESG therefore recommends looking beyond the endpoint and utilizing natively integrated security solutions across more than just one vector to improve detection and response times. The more data you can knit together, the more effective you can be to uncover the security incidents most dangerous to your organization.
Watch this webinar to learn about the value of XDR: connecting detection and response across multiple security layers. Dave Gruber, senior analyst at ESG, shares recent research and his views on the evolution of threat detection and response; making the case for expanding the capabilities and expectations of detection and response solutions. Wendy Moore, VP of Product Marketing, discusses Trend Micro’s own XDR strategy and the unique value that Trend Micro can bring to detection, investigation and response.
Context can make or break the communication – and, ultimately, the relationship – between
a consumer and a brand. Today’s consumers expect relevant communications that speak
directly to their needs in the moment. We have the technology today to deliver such messages –
but there are significant barriers to developing relevant, contextual programs of this kind.
Some of the development challenges represent new versions of old challenges. Take data as an
example: it has always been hard to harness data from different sources and to leverage insights in
real time. But today, there are additional opportunities – if not expectations – for marketers to use
contextual data to better reach and engage customers through the optimal channel(s).

Unilever is a global player in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector, with nearly a third of the world’s population using its products every day. The company has more than 169,000 employees working around the world, and its leaders estimate that within three years, as many as 60 percent of those employees will be Millennials. Critical to Unilever’s ongoing success will be its ability to attract these recent college graduates.
For its signature Future Leaders Programme, the company wanted its recruitment efforts to get ahead of the curve. The existing process was rooted in paper-based applications, phone interviews with recruiters, and manual assessment tests. It took four to six months to sift through 250,000 applications and ultimately hire 800 individuals. The company sought to radically transform this process using online gamification, digitally recorded interviews, and science-based assessment tests and data analysis.
