In such a competitive business market, retaining the best talent is crucial. Knowing what makes them want to walk out the door is the first step in keeping them. The good news is that business leaders recognize the peril they face - and the need to do something about it. In a recent survey, 45% said they fear becoming obsolete in three to five years; 73% agree on the business need to prioritize technology, and 66% are planning to invest in IT infrastructure and digital skills leadership. However, investment without strategy is unlikely to succeed. Because innovation comes from people, investment must foster human creativity. Investment in technology that enables workers to address new challenges in new ways will give rise to new business initiatives, happier customers, and superior corporate financial performance.

IT organizations are no longer just a business support function and cost center—they are expected to drive business as part of the core corporate strategy. Adding to this, IT landscapes continue to increase in complexity, complicating management and innovation.
Digital transformation helps IT adapt to these changes. Building a hybrid or multi-cloud IT environment can help you transform successfully. An effective cloud environment can provide:
• Improved infrastructure management and flexibility
• More time for IT to focus on strategic projects rather than manage data centers.
• Better IT cost management
In fact, 49% of companies cite “modernized IT infrastructure and technologies with increased agility, flexibility, manageability, and security” as a digital initiative on their long-term roadmap.

Have you ever wished for an army of clones to do all your thankless
tasks and chores? Well, that fantasy is becoming a reality—at least
on the Internet. And while they may not be actual clones, bots have
begun doing lots of digital dirty work.
Managing your relationship with bots—good and bad—has become an inherent part of doing business in a
connected world. With more than half of online traffic initiated by autonomous programs, it’s clear that bots
are a driving force of technological change, and they’re here to stay.
As bot technology, machine learning, and AI continue to evolve, so will the threats they pose. And while
some bots are good, many are malicious—and the cybercriminals behind them are targeting your apps.
Preparing your organization to deal with the impact of bots on your business is essential to developing a
sustainable strategy that will enable you to grow as you adapt to the new bot-enabled world.
The IoT is transforming the energy industry by eliminating tradeoffs between operation, SCADA systems, maintenance and new services for assets deployed in industrial and power facilities, buildings and across the grid.
When it comes to building the best IoT system for your business application, it’s vital to keep your use case and business requirements at the forefront of your technical design strategy. In the energy industry, accessing and collecting data at the edge from disparate, heterogenous, multi-site, fixed topologies and transferring that data efficiently to the cloud to perform analytics and action business decisions is still the greatest challenge. Mission-critical data collected from the edge is integral to energy facility operations and cannot be excluded or corrupted.
Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.

With IT under increasing pressure to deliver on availability service levels and make a positive impact on the business, having a robust, efficient, and reliable modern data protection strategy is a must. Making the right IT investments can be instrumental in moving the needle, and leveraging the right tools and technology can make a substantial impact.
Digital transformation (DX) is a must for midsize firms (those with 100 to 999 employees) to thrive in the digital economy. DX enables firms to increase competitive advantage through initiatives such as automating business processes, creating greater operational efficiencies, building deeper customer relationships, and creating new revenue streams based on technology-enabled products and services. DX is a journey, and it starts with firms embracing an IT-centric vision that guides a data-driven, analytics-first strategy. The outcome of DX initiatives depends on the ability of a firm to efficiently leverage people (talent), process, platforms, and governance to meet the firm’s business objectives.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
