From globalization and rapid technological advances to the ever-evolving instant gratification requirements of consumers, the message is simple: go digital or go bust.
This paper examines what digital transformation means for an organization’s people, why the HR function sits at the heart of any digital transformation, and how the right technology can power HR’s success.

IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. It sounds synonymous with digital transformation, but in actuality, IT Transformation is the set of enabling technologies, processes, and focus areas that make effective digital transformation possible.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure 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.

Daten sind der wichtigste Besitz eines Unternehmens. Sie werden verwendet, um Entscheidungen zu treffen und Abläufe zu überwachen. Anwendungen bilden die Grundlage der digitalen Transformation in jeder Branche, aber diese Anwendungen sind nur neue Schnittstellen, die Anwender mit Daten verbinden. Daten sind wertvoll – für das Unternehmen und für die modernen Piraten von heute, die es darauf abgesehen haben, diesen digitalen Schatz zu erbeuten. Unternehmen müssen ihre Daten sorgfältig vor externen Angriffen schützen.
Zunehmend sind Unternehmen jedoch von internen Bedrohungen betroffen. Wie verteidigen Sie sich gegen böswillige Insider, die vertrauliche Daten für finanzielle Bereicherung ausnutzen möchten, oder gegen unachtsame Insider, die versehentlich auf eine Phishing-E-Mail klicken und sich die Anmeldeinformationen stehlen lassen?

Verbesserungen an der Sicherheit eines IT-Netzwerkes bedeuten oft schlechtere Netzwerk-Performance und umgekehrt.

After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an
inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a
source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls
the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine
into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’
digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require
organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external
environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new
business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can
adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e
Digital transformation is a reality for marketers that is wrapped in both opportunities and headaches. Marketers understand the choices and expectations that their customers now have, and they are up for the challenge. But marketers also have many obstacles to overcome to deliver the consistently good, timely and engaging customer experience, across devices, that customers demand.
The good news is that the marketing technology industry is rapidly evolving to address these challenges. And in the same way that consumers have an abundance of choices, marketers also have many options when it comes to choosing partners to help. But where to start, and how to choose the right partners?
Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
With more and more dependency on mobile and cloud, digital enablement is key to business success. Now IT has an increased impact on how to drive strategy and implementation to reach business goals.
But the reality of distributed applications and connected devices has introduced new security challenges. To secure information and provide users seamless access to data, you need to reevaluate your approach to authentication. You need a modern authentication solution that is agile and secure, enabling your digital transformation.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways.

Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
