Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets. But, in today’s complex data environment exists a near paradox between these expectations, that companies will be able to rapidly deliver value using data and analytics--and the complexities of the data landscape, making it more difficult to find, govern, connect to and access the data needed to deliver that value. Once thing is clear: if management expectation is to be met, simplifying connectivity is a must.In this white paper, veteran analyst Mike Ferguson, Managing Director of Intelligent Business Strategies explores how simplifying data access –connectivity –aligns expectations with data realities thus decreasing time to value.

The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated to new heights, commanding the attention of CEOs across all industries. According to research recently published by McKinsey, more than three-quarters of Fortune 500 CEOs do not believe their companies are effective at attracting highly talented people. Of those CEOs who do consider their companies successful at attracting top talent, only 7% believe they are effective in retaining them. In today’s hyperconnected labor market, recruitment and retention are not separate problems; they are two sides of the same coin. Companies that have adopted integrated strategies for recruitment and retention have a significant competitive advantage. But according to McKinsey’s data, this group represents only a small fraction of the Fortune 500. The rest of the HR universe is under tremendous

Today’s brick and mortar retailers must tackle myriad challenges in an era of industry transformation, increased customer expectations and a highly-competitive landscape. The vast majority are facing these hurdles head-on, with particularly dogged efforts toward reaching omnichannel excellence: For example, according to Zebra Technologies’ 2017 Retail Vision Study, 90% of retailers plan to have an omnichannel practice in place by 2021, through options such as Buy Online, Pick Up in Store (BOPIS) or Click & Collect. It has become clear, however, that for these omnichannel efforts to succeed, inventory visibility and accuracy (ideally 90% or more, according to the Retail Vision Study) is more important than ever — to provide consumers with the easiest path to purchase and retailers with the most efficient way to fulfill. Accurate inventory is the foundation upon which all the other pillars of retail can be built, so retailers can react quickly and make smart decisions about their busines

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

No matter what future you see ahead for your accounts payable (AP) organization, one thing is sure: If your organization is going to succeed in the emerging digital trade and commerce environment, it will need to process transactions more efficiently than ever, have faster access to AP information, and be able to act upon information and identify opportunities more quickly. This will require AP organizations to transform their processes with digital technologies. Accounts payable departments that delay their digital transformation initiatives risk falling behind their peers and putting their business at a competitive disadvantage in the global business landscape. This white paper details the growth of digital technologies, the dangers of relying on manual and semi-automated AP payable processes, the benefits of using digital technologies in AP, and how effective change management ensures the success of digital transformation efforts.

Digital technology is creating change at a pace never seen before. Customers now expect speed, ease, choice and a personalised service. It makes customer experience key to success. And it sets merchants a challenge. To survive, and thrive, businesses need to stay agile in everything they do –including how they manage fraud. As the people who set the strategy that determines if an order is accepted or not, fraud teams have a pivotal role to play in improving customer experience and reducing risk. This makes fraud management more than a back-office utility. It’s a way to differentiate your business and achieve a competitive advantage. This is the question we put to three specialists from CyberSource – as well as Chris Monk from digital literacy agency Decoded. This report reflects their expert opinion, and explores: • The changing landscape for businesses. • The key challenges for fraud teams. • How to develop an agile fraud solution

A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance. Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service delivery model. The more up to date the infrastructure, the more capable it is of supporting the scale and complexity of a changing application landscape. Current-generation applications must be supplemented and eventually supplanted with next-generation (also known as cloud-native) applications — each with very different infrastructure requirements.

Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."
