The importance of nurturing a talented workforce cannot be understated. It enables your organization to perform effectively today, while also preparing you for future growth. But in reality, how many are companies actually nurturing their employees?
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. Keeping infrastructure up

Integration is the lifeblood of today’s digital economy, and middleware is the software layer connecting
different applications, services, devices, data sources, and business entities. This Ovum Decision
Matrix (ODM) is a comprehensive evaluation to help enterprise IT leaders, including chief information
officers (CIOs), enterprise/integration architects, integration competency center (ICC)/integration
center of excellence (CoE) directors, and digital transformation leaders select a middleware-as-aservice
(MWaaS) suite best suited to their specific hybrid integration requirements.
Pricing needs to support a brand’s overall marketing platform. But is that enough to assure consistency of message throughout the organization? Given the far-reaching influence a price position has on a brand, and how various departments need to be aligned to support that position, an argument can be made for treating pricing as a core competency within the organization.
What does this mean in real terms? Pricing is a day-to-day concern for numerous departments throughout the organization. While marketing might use pricing tactics to grow market share, sales teams chase volume goals, and product development teams lose sleep over the price image each product projects.

When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component. Misalignment – or too much focus on one element –can dramatically detract from performance levels and the ability to measure results. An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.

Today’s Digital Business needs a strategy for business content – one that spans the creation, capture, activation and analysis of it – which assures security, compliance with regulations, and minimizes risk. This session will confront content chaos and its impact on business agility. We will share stories from IBM customers who are using business content solutions to deliver on the promise of the Digital Business today. Many are using ECM Centers of Competency to bring together all stakeholders in the business to create a unified vision for information management across all departments and all forms of data and content, whether on-premises, mobile, or in the cloud.
For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability.
I had the pleasure of meeting David Harcourt, Associate Manager of Employee Insights at Yum! Brands when he spoke at the Analytics Experience 2016 conference in Las Vegas. His session, “HR Analytics from Scratch: 8 Lessons Learned in the First Year,” provided valuable insight into what it takes to build HR analytic competency from scratch. His mission is to share with others what he wishes he’d known when he started bui
Improving the customer experience is a strategic imperative for most
organizations today, but delivering an engaging experience across the growing
number of digital customer touch points can be a daunting challenge.
Organizations must deliver responsive experiences that “play well” on
smartphones, PCs, and tablets. They must publish content to installed app
experiences on mobile and other connected devices, to social channels, and
to email campaigns. They must manage global sites in different languages,
localize the experience for different markets, and — increasingly — personalize
the experience for different customer personas or segments.
A modern digital experience management platform is essential for any
organization hoping to make digital experience delivery a core competency.

Sites) to understand the impact of the platform on their ability to create,

its role in global competency and to frame the vision inside broader shifts to personalized learning and blended
instruction. Pointing to the potential of educational technology, we advocated for accessible, high-quality world
language instruction for all students—from elementary through high school.

Machine learning offers the depth, creative problem-solving capabilities, and automation to help security organizations gain significant ground against attackers. It’s a powerful tool for processing massive amounts of data for the purpose of malware classification and analysis, especially for unknown threats. Through supervised learning, human researchers can continually develop new training models that expand the understanding and competency of machine learning systems.
