Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources.

Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company.

Speed is the hallmark of the digital age. E-commerce has grown by double-digits since 2010,¹ spurred by the expansion of quick delivery. The healthcare industry, buoyed by online diagnostic tools and patient analytics, has been experiencing record-breaking growth.² And on-demand online learning is experiencing its 13th consecutive year of growth.³ These trends are not unique. “Digital disruption” is no longer a futurist’s fantasy, it is happening now. Yet talent acquisition lags feebly behind. It takes an average of 43 days for a US company to fill an open position, up from 33 in 2010. That’s right- filling empty positions takes companies longer than ever before, in spite of technological progress. The pace of business is speeding up, but HR is actually slowing down. Nearly every major industry has leveraged digital transformation to their advantage and reaped massive rewards- why not HR?

The General Data Protection Regulation – or GDPR – is a European Union (EU) law that protects the rights of individuals with respect to their data. Adopted as an EU law in April 2016, organizations that hold data about any resident of the EU must be compliant by May 2018. With attention-grabbing fines of €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover, GDPR commands attention at the highest levels. And despite the “legalese” that compliance suggests brands utilize, the brands that balance legal compliance with a human approach will turn GDPR to their advantage. This white paper provides a series of actions you can take to make the most of GDPR to both enhance your customer relationships and mitigate risk.

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

With decisions riding on the timeliness and quality of analytics, business stakeholders are less patient with delays in the development of new applications that provide reports, analysis, and access to diverse data itself. Executives, managers, and frontline personnel fear that decisions based on old and incomplete data or formulated using slow, outmoded, and limited reporting functionality will be bad decisions. A deficient information supply chain hinders quick responses to shifting situations and increases exposure to financial and regulatory risk—putting a business at a competitive disadvantage. Stakeholders are demanding better access to data, faster development of business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications, and agile solutions in sync with requirements.

The Internet of Things enables retailers to do three basics better and faster: 1) Sensing who customers are and what they’re doing, 2) Understanding customer behavior and preferences, and 3)Acting on that insight to create a more engaging customer experience. - There are high-potential IoT applications in supply chain, in “smart store” operations, and especially in providing an engaging experience to the “connected customer.” IoT data can anticipate where the customer is headed and how to meet her there. - Much of the IoT ground, in both data management and analytics, may be unfamiliar. Retailers and their IT organizations have to be realistic about the technological challenges, their own capabilities, and where they need assistance. - To differentiate through IoT, focus on the analytics. Devices and their data — and even their platforms — are commodities. Advantage goes to the retailer who does the most with the data to engage the connected customer.
