The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."
The way we work has completely transformed. New technology is changing how, where and when we work. In this new landscape, businesses face challenges around growth, talent acquisition and productivity. Employers need to embrace new technology to get ahead in
this new world of work, and put people at the heart of their strategy. However, HR and People leaders are in fierce competition for that all-important slice of budget and that makes building the strongest business case for technology investment vital.
This guide is designed to help HR and People leaders like you get the financial support you need. You’ll get practical, effective tips on:
• Understanding and explaining the true benefits of investing in a new HR system and likely return on investment
• Positioning HR as a leader of change throughout your business
• Ensuring your HR vision fits in with the business strategy
• Getting management and key stakeholder buy-in
• Building the strongest business case and the most powerful el

"This whitepaper from the SANS Institute focuses on the growing use and benefits derived from information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) convergence which includes more effective management and operation of contemporary control systems. IT/OT convergence carries unique challenges that make managing and securing an industrial control system (ICS) more difficult. This is due to greater technical complexity, expanded risks and new threats to more than just business operations. This paper explores the issues that arise with the blending of IT and OT into combined cyber-physical systems where risks must be identifed and managed.

-Why are digital asset inventories critical for IT/OT security risk management?
-How does knowledge about risks and vulnerabilities to IT/OT systems lead to better risk management?
-Can applying even a few of Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls make a marked difference in the securit

"With millions of sellers and billions of products to compete with on marketplaces, it’s easy to get buried in data every day — and still feel behind. And this is now true across almost all product verticals, as more and more niche categories become intense competitive battlegrounds.
Shoppers know they have multiple options for purchasing the same item, and it’s no longer your product descriptions and images alone that capture attention. If you want to consistently rise to the top of results, a structured pricing strategy is a must.
In this eBook, you’ll learn:
- Complications of marketplace pricing
- Benefits of strategic pricing
- Pricing best practices

"Whether you call yourself a company, brand, brand manufacturer, manufacturer, wholesaler, branded manufacturer or one of the other myriad of categorizations out there, there’s never been a better time to focus on direct-to-consumer (D2C) marketplaces as part of your go-to market strategy. Some 60% of consumers are already visiting your website instead of your retailers’ sites, and more than half will opt to buy directly from brand manufacturers when given the option.
After years of relying on marketplaces to handle so many mission-critical activities, it can be challenging to build a successful D2C model that thoroughly addresses them all. This process will require a new way of thinking for you, a cultural shift for your employees and a lot of logistics for everyone involved.
But how can you know when it’s time to start selling on e-commerce marketplaces? While the benefits of transitioning to a D2C marketplace model are undeniable, it also requires a significant investment of time
