Information on artificial intelligence (AI) is flooding the market, media and social channels. Without doubt, it’s certainly a topic worth the attention. But, it can be difficult to sift through market hype and grandiose promises to understand exactly how AI can be applied in practical and reliable solutions. Like most technological advances, incorporating new technology into business processes requires significant leadership and effective direction that all stakeholders can easily understand. Great leaders become great by balancing strategy with tactics, future vision with current reality and strengths with weaknesses – all with the goal of accomplishing a clearly defined objective.

Business is changing fast. Even companies that believe they have a competitive edge today are at risk of falling behind. Information Technology (IT) keeps businesses booming, but it’s a stretch for busy executives to drop into the data center to ensure that server racks and network boxes are humming. Leadership is preoccupied with growing the customer base, keeping costs down, profitability and growth. At a time when disruptive products and services are the name of the game, it’s become clear that doing “enough” with your technology investment simply isn’t enough to survive.

"Workday has grown at a rapid pace since the company’s inception. Though this growth was indicative of the company’s success, it had an unintended side effect. Workday faced the same challenge experienced by nearly every high growth company: a tension between growth and culture. The company needed a way to bring all of its employees into its values system quickly, and ensure that people leaders were truly growing and leading in alignment with Workday’s culture. The company also needed a way to help people leaders newer to management learn and on-ramp quickly, in alignment with the speed of the business. One of the steps Workday took to protect and nurture its special culture was reaching out to BetterUp to try out its leadership coaching.

In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.

Darktrace’s world leadership in the field of artificial intelligence for cyber security makes it the most effective and proven solution to detect unprecedented threats and anomalous cyber-incidents in the cloud.

Preparing for the 2020 workforce is critical to business strategy, growth, and performance. To understand the challenges and opportunities, Oxford Economics and SAP surveyed over 2,700 executives and more than 2,700 employees in 27 countries during the second quarter of 2014. We found that many companies lack the structure, strategy, culture, solutions and resources to manage employees effectively. To succeed, they must address the role and relevance of people strategy; changing demographics and evolving definitions of work; leadership ability and cultivation; employee wants and needs; and talent development.
