The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has shown incredible promise across a wide range of industries. But the benefits of automation have mostly occurred through Robotic Process Automation (RPA), which automates repetitive, mundane tasks – liberating workers to focus on higher-level business initiatives that only humans are capable of providing. After successful trials in most of the world’s largest organizations, automation and AI are poised to transform the global workplace. Making Work Human: 5 Challenges, research by Goldsmiths, University of London, supported by Automation Anywhere, seeks to uncover the main obstacles that organizations must now overcome in order to scale automation and AI, and recognize the true potential of these ground-breaking technologies.

Today, technology is all about enabling business. Organizations of many types and sizes are developing, upgrading or replacing mobile applications to reflect changes in the workplace. Across industries, employees are working more while mobile, using multiple devices. When they return to the office, they are capitalizing on more flexible work environments and approaches to work. Many organizations are facilitating this anytime, anywhere work with mobility initiatives that provide mobile devices or allow employees to use their own. They are also modifying workspace designs, creating mobile workstations and mobile “hot spots” to enable workers to easily connect to enterprise systems when they return to the office. Enabling employees to work better can help organizations boost productivity and improve customer service. The real challenge is to continue supporting new ways of working, now and in the future, without compromising security.

While just about everyone is writing about how IT and the businesses it serves need to be transformed, the actual industry answers to both digital and IT transformation remain unclear at best. Are transformational initiatives all about analytics and big data? Or are they about the move to cloud in all its varieties? Support for mobile? More agile ways of working and developing software? Or are they actually all about crafting teams to promote more proactive dialog between the business and IT? The truth is, of course, digital and IT transformation depend on all of the above and more. They also depend on a resilient infrastructure that’s easily adapted to changing business priorities without requiring long hours spent on maintenance, updates, and addressing problems of service availability. But making all this work clearly and cohesively is far beyond the purview of almost any solution today—whether from a software management perspective or from a hardware infrastructure perspective.

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed. Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable. In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

One of the value propositions of an Internet of Things (IoT) strategy is the ability to provide insight that was previously invisible to the business. But before a business can develop a strategy for IoT, it needs a platform that meets the foundational principles of an IoT solution. Amazon Web Services (AWS) believes in some basic freedoms that are driving organizational and economic benefits of the cloud into businesses. These freedoms are why more than a million customers already use the AWS platform to support virtually any cloud workload. These freedoms are also why AWS is proving itself as the primary catalyst to any Internet of Things strategy across commercial, consumer, and industrial solutions. This paper outlines core tenets that should be considered when developing an IoT strategy, the benefits of AWS in that strategy and how the AWS cloud platform can be the critical component supporting those core tenets.

In our latest survey report, we explore the growth challenges facing businesses and HR leaders in a rapidly changing landscape. We surveyed over 500 HR leaders in leading organisations to explore their views on these challenges, and to find out how they are supporting people and leveraging people data to help them achieve their growth goals. The survey revealed that: • It’s the war for talent, again. The greatest challenges for growing companies are winning the war for talent, growing productivity and improving workforce visibility. • Fast-growth companies share common traits in the way they manage and engage their people—we call this being a People Company. • There’s a disconnect between managers and employees in terms of what being a People Company means. • Becoming a People Company is a journey, with many organisations some way from embracing all aspects. • People Science is a thing: there’s an appetite to leverage people data and analytics, but there are blockers in the way.

" One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization. In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure and processes to better meet business needs."

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need. Gartner evaluated 12 vendors including Pegasystems against nine critical capabilities in four use cases.

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

Platform businesses are reshaping our economy and disrupting entire markets by seamlessly connecting buyers and sellers. However, processing payments and the exchange of value on a platform or marketplace can be challenging. Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the challenges that platforms and their sellers face, and the solutions they seek. Through a global online survey of 2,030 platform sellers and four in-depth interviews, Forrester found that platforms struggle to provide their sellers with much-needed payment capabilities, reporting, and customer support services with in-house resources alone. Meanwhile, sellers demand that platforms provide these services and will prefer platforms that are service-rich over platforms that are service-poor. KEY FINDINGS • The complexities of managing a platform force executives to divert resources, which stalls growth. • Going global is easier said than done. • Sellers will flock to platforms that simplify the process of sellin

Several years ago, a transformation in IT began to take place; a transformation from an IT-centric view of technology to a business-centric view of technology that Forrester refers to as business technology (BT). This transformation has a profound impact on the role of the CIO. The CIO must now view himself or herself as a business enabler. He or she must focus on continuously aligning with business objectives, improving delivery capability to support business processes that bring new products and services to market more quickly, fostering innovation, and reducing costs through improved performance. In this custom Technology Adoption Profile (TAP), the data confirms this trend.
