Millennials (those born between 1980 and 2000, also known as Gen Y) are driven to succeed by different factors than their predecessors. This is forcing managers to adapt--but rather than a cause for alarm, this workplace demographic shift is best viewed as an opportunity to capitalize on the strengths and priorities of these younger employees.
The prospect of dramatically altering your company's management strategy to accomodate a new generation might seem daunting. However, by keeping a few key priciples in mind, your managers can lead their millennial employees without missing a beat. The changes to the makeup of the future workforce are inevitable, but with these simple steps your business can thrive in this new climate.
There are countless ways to measure workforce intelligence, but just tracking soft measurements such as "improvements" isn't enough. In order to get the attention of senior management while positively impacting business results, HR must challenge the way it uses workforce intelligence. To provide more meaningful analytics that help drive business success, HR should rely on metrics that focus on business goals, establish revenue impact, and anticipate future trends in the workforce.
This e-guide will allow you to explore some of the most valuable reports and tools that HR professionals can turn to when delivering data to executives. Additionally, uncover tips for more effectively utilizing your workforce data to make fact-based decisions about human capital investments as they relate to business and financial objectives.

Developing talent within the workforce is one of the most important ways that companies ensure future success and increase their Return on Employee Investment (ROEI). When two businesses are similar yet one thrives while the other is on the verge of failure, you can usually pinpoint the difference to how well (or poorly) each company manages talent. Wise investments in employee and leadership development tend to improve financial results.
Predictive analytics, sometimes called
advanced analytics, is a term used to describe
a range of analytical and statistical
techniques to predict future actions or
behaviors. In business, predictive analytics
are used to make proactive decisions
and determine actions, by using statistical
models to discover patterns in historical
and transactional data to uncover
likely risks and opportunities.
Predictive analytics incorporates a range
of activities which we will explore in this
paper, including data access, exploratory
data analysis and visualization, developing
assumptions and data models, applying
predictive models, then estimating
and/or predicting future outcomes.

With aging workforces and a shortage of critical talent being among the biggest challenges facing today's businesses, strategic workforce planning has become one of of HR's most important responsibilities.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
Think you can’t afford flash?
Think again. If you’re looking to make a primary storage investment in the near future, you can’t afford not to consider an
all-flash or converged flash array. HPE offers the only architecture on the market that is flash-optimized without being flash-limited—so you won’t have to make business-limiting decisions when it comes to implementing flash, such as inserting a new silo into your environment or undergoing painful hardware rip-and-replace.
As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
