We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years. This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity. There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive. Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal framework that will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018 in the European Union. EU regulations have direct effect in all EU member states, meaning the GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Directive and applies to all EU member states. The GDPR’s focus is the protection of personal data. In fact, GDPR is one of the biggest shakeups ever seen affecting how data relating to an individual should be handled—and it affects not just companies but any individual, corporation, public authority, agency or other body that processes the personal data of individuals based in the EU. As gatekeepers and processors of personal data, HR and People teams have a crucial role to play in preparing for this step change. The rules on how data is kept and used will become much more stringent, and it’s vital that HR and People teams become more transparent, communicating to employees exactly how their data is processed.

To compete in today’s world, business leaders are placing increased demands on IT. Unfortunately, many IT departments are not able to deliver future innovation with their current infrastructure, applications and processes. To meet these demands, IT must digitally transform the enterprise through the adoption of cloud native practices, allowing them to both optimize and transform their existing infrastructure and applications. Recent Avanade research supports this thinking, finding that 88% of senior IT decision-makers believe that IT modernization is crucial to addressing the emerging requirements of the digital business1 . On the upside, those surveyed also indicated that by modernizing their IT infrastructures they expect to deliver real business results, such as boosting annual revenue by 14%, while at the same time reducing business operating costs by 13%1 . For many, this sounds like a winning strategy but what does it mean to adopt cloud native approaches, and how does it impact

Today, IT leaders address the PC lifecycle across a continuum from control to transformation. Control is geared to optimization, while transformation focuses on the business impact of technology. Though the two approaches differ, they are not in opposition. They strive for the same goals and face similar challenges.

Read this Dell whitepaper to learn more about the findings of a recent Forrester Consulting study, “Digital Transformers Innovate, Digital Controllers Optimize”.

As a modern marketer, you’re always looking for ways to improve your efficiency at work, especially in the form of software that makes some part of your job easier. You’ve likely heard a lot lately about AI in marketing and how it promises to do just that – and more, of course. In fact, it’s pretty hard to avoid the topic of AI and all the ways it is destined to change marketing as we know it. You may already know that companies who have adopted AI boast about the results: increased conversions, engagement, and a host of other metrics. With such decisive evidence, everybody must be aware of AI and clearly sees its business potential, right? Then you go to your Chief Marketing Officer to strike up an informal conversation where you can strategically recommend the technology, and it starts off great — your CMO is well aware of AI and what it could do for the business. You’re thinking, “What luck! I might not have to put up much of an argument.” Then your CMO says, “But you’re not a data

Self-care is a complex concept, and there are many misconceptions about it. Some suggest it can be selfish, that it involves expensive, lavish things. Some even consider it to be a sign of weakness. However, these misconceptions are the opposite of the truth. People who prioritize their personal health and well-being are better able to serve themselves and those around them. In other words, it’s a selfless act.

IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. It sounds like another current term, “digital transformation.” But in fact, effective digital transformation doesn’t happen without IT Transformation. A company that undergoes IT infrastructure transformation no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.
