Cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and, more often than not, target small and midsize businesses (SMBs). One unlucky click - a malicious email attachment, a link to a legitimate but compromised website - could result in a costly data breach that drains your bank account and customer trust.
This paper explains targeted attacks and examines reasons cyber attackers are aiming at small and midsize businesses, including:
Value of your data;
Low risk and high returns for criminals;
Why SMBs are easier targets.
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.
IDC interviewed organizations using Adobe Experience Manager Sites (AEM
Sites) to understand the impact of the platform on their ability to create,
manage, and deliver digital experiences. Study participants
Changing your business processes can often be a daunting task. If what you’ve done in the past has always worked, why won’t it continue to work? This can be a dangerous line of thinking, as emerging technologies are constantly providing new ways for you to operate and grow your business. Digital transformation is the process of integrating these new technologies to maximize productivity, efficiency, and value.
This white paper and webcast from IDC—made available by Epicor—explores why more and more manufacturers are upgrading their enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and utilizing digital technologies in their products and processes.

In this whitepaper we'll explore some of these problems inherent in virtualized datacenters and cloud environments, specifically enterprise private clouds, and we'll discuss solutions that can take you down the last mile of the automation journey so that your business can fully achieve agility and extract maximum value from its private-cloud investments.
The old model of IT involved deploying more of everything just to keep up with demands. However, IT departments that are able to deliver solutions for business needs and support business goals have moved beyond managing siloed systems. Adopting a more efficient model of IT service and systems is the key to freeing IT to improve business operations.
Reaching that level of efficiency through “do-it-yourself” efforts requires an immense amount of time and expense up front. What if someone has already pre-engineered, pre-tested, and optimized a perfect solution for your IT needs?
See the difference a converged system can make.

One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.

For internal support centers, the message coming from the overall
business is clear: You need to demonstrate your business value.
Outsourcing, managed services and cloud-based solutions that
didn’t exist just a few years ago are piling on the pressure.
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization. This complexity makes it costly and difficult for support organizations to adapt—and places an increasingly substantial burden on the agility and efficiency of the business as a whole. CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.
Service management platforms have a vital role to play, but in most organizations, they’re not living up to expectations—delivering far too much complexity and cost, and far too little business value and time
savings. This proves true even in organizations that have migrated to new solutions in recent years. This paper outlines why legacy service desks and even newer platforms have not delivered on expectations, it describes the requirements for a service desk solution to be truly effective in today’s business environment and it details how CA Cloud Service Management delivers on these key 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."
In the digital era, the customer experience is the new battleground for differentiation. Businesses must make digital interactions personal and contextually relevant with every interaction to thrive and meet today’s consumer’s expectations. Cloud-based unified communications, integrated business applications, and CPaaS is the winning combination to enable contextual communications across the customer value chain.

Many retailers have responded with a largely outdated omnichannel approach, focusing on integrating the physical and digital channels they use to interact with customers, when the problem is actually inside the business. Today's customers will remain loyal only if a brand offers them transparency and superior quality products while actively engaging with them to build a relationship they value. Meeting those needs has nothing to do with offering another physical, digital, or mobile channel and everything to do with running the business in a way that is customer-first and customer-centric.

The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies—
specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and
manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency.
However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.
While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as
it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the
adoption of new tools and technology.
This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to
using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic
user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable
them to manage their health more easily. Providers want to provide new
Today’s thriving High-Tech sector is driven by shrinking product lifecycles, rapid innovation, distributed engineering/manufacturing—and highly demanding customer expectations. The industry needs to deliver on multiple fronts, including:
• Embed customer-centric innovation throughout the lifecycle: Only with customer experience at the core can companies stay ahead.
• Tame ideas into executable products: Detecting early trends and using customer feedback is vital.
• Manage complexity better: Increasing visibility of all product data helps build and manage digital models to use in every business function from R&D to field service.
• Create relevant connected systems: High-Tech innovators use IoT for an ongoing dialogue of customers, devices and manufacturers.
• Provide agility to compete on software, hardware and service: Customers want value from every interaction.
