How can your business support new identity-defined workspaces across a variety of users — retail store associates checking inventory on a PC and a smartphone, hospital clinicians entering test results into a mobile workstation and an iPad, or financial advisors placing trades from Android devices and laptops?
The answer is the digital workspace.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
The mobile-cloud era is here. It is not merely about delivering apps; it is about simplifying processes so you can accomplish more. The mobile-cloud era is redefining productivity by enabling workflows through the key foundations of identity and contextual experiences, mobile collaboration, united endpoint management and security, and windows apps and desktops.
Today people work primarily from mobile sources and expect a strikingly continuous experience across all their devices, regardless of which device they select to best accomplish any given task. Once access is established, organizations are looking to transform processes to mobile so they can increase efficiency and workflows for end users, thereby driving productivity to the next level.

The old rules no longer apply. Digital technologies have radically transformed the business landscape, yet many organizations have completely ignored this reality. A new survey of IT decision makers found 96% see digital transformation as important or critical, yet 55% say they have one year or less to respond before they financially suffer. By failing to prepare for new technologies, devices and systems, organizations have threatened their own survival.

For today’s service providers and enterprises, bandwidth demands continue to increase and evolve. The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as smart homes, smart cities, connected cars, and connected medical devices, is forcing organizations to change existing business models and to build more cost-effective networks.
Traditional business models are getting shattered by subscriptions. No one can doubt the new services economy is flourishing. The cloud, mobile, digital, connected devices, globalization - all these things have had a hand in reshaping business and powering new business models. Companies today are wrapping service-based business models and while this shift adds new complexities for finance and has major revenue recognition implications, it also gives finance leaders huge opportunities to become bigger value creators for their business and make a stronger impact on enterprise-wide strategies - not financials.
For sales teams to be successful in the age of the customer, they need tools that help them close more deals, faster. Some CRM tools are underused because they’re not geared to helping reps sell in the modern era. This may be because they’re complicated to use; because they’re isolated from the apps your reps use every day; or because they don’t give reps the information they need.
Today, sales automation is not (just) about managing accounts, contacts, and activities. It’s about gaining insight that provides a competitive edge, having access to predictive information, being able to collaborate in real time, creating quotes in front of the customer, updating forecasts. All at any time, from any place, using mobile devices—all helping to drive sales and pipeline.
Mobile is undoubtedly changing both our personal and professional lives. Customer service organizations should decide on a strategy to bridge the gap between mobile behavior and customer service. This requires a strategic review of value drivers, combined with a tactical search for relevant use cases.
Don’t fall in the “we need an app for everything” trap — some users need big screens, some users don’t. Some need a rich experience, others just need basic functions. Your strategy must take all of these dynamics into consideration.
Effectively supporting these new business demands has become more complex and challenging. The increased use of mobile devices alone is driving exponential growth in transaction volumes.
A customer pushes a button on his or her cell phone, for example, to check a bank balance. That single transaction triggers a cascade of transactions as the request is validated and data is accessed, retrieved and then sent back to the customer.
In our increasingly connected world, quality, reliability and
consistency matter a great deal, particularly in the context of the
smart home ecosystem. The antennas, connectors, relays,
sensors, switches, terminals and tubing inside these devices
play critical roles in the product’s ultimate functionality. If you
don’t focus on the right components or choose the wrong or
incompatible ones, then device reliability becomes an issue.
Traditional organizations across the globe are transforming to compete against digital-only players, in restructuring to put the customer first. The world’s buying behavior - and people’s behavior in relation to technology - is quickly changing in connection with online distribution channels, smart devices, and their interplay with offline touchpoints. Siloed business systems and their old reporting lines need to shift, and synchronize - fast.
Maintaining a competitive edge today means building a Digital Enterprise capable of taking full advantage of social, mobile, web, cloud, “things,” (sensors and devices), and analytics technologies. Among the terms used to describe this business transition is “the API Economy,” an economy in which APIs are no longer just an IT concern, but the underpinnings of new revenue streams and new business models that are disrupting entire industries.

As the hunger for bandwidth and the number of devices within enterprise networks continue to increase, collaboration between NetOps and SecOps for a fast, secure network is a must. Download the SANS whitepaper Network Architecture with Security in Mind and learn about a new security approach that relies on pervasive visibility to send the right data to the right tools that are already in place, rather than adding more performance-hindering layers of security.
The digital economy is dramatically changing how your customers buy products and services, and how they interact with your business. As customers increasingly use multiple devices (including
Smartphones) to make their purchases, they expect fast, consistent and highly secure experiences – and you need to deliver. At the same time, you should remain vigilant about fraud. Effective fraud management is critical, not only for reducing risk, but also for accepting more good customer orders, improving customer engagement, controlling costs and achieving competitive advantage.
Mobile devices are everywhere. 95% of UK millennials now use smartphones1; and it’s estimated that across the globe, nearly a billion more people now use mobile phones today than did five years ago.2 Mobile commerce will continue to grow as smartphones continue to be adopted. For example, forecasts for Europe’s EU 5 (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) show mCommerce will account for 43.8% of eCommerce sales by 2020, compared to 32.9% in 2016.3 As fraud teams determine which orders to accept or reject, fraud managers are key to providing a seamless mobile checkout experience. But they also need to protect their business from fraud – and from the damage it can cause to bottom line, customer experience and brand.
It has to be quick and easy for people to pay. At the same time, fraudsters are probing the weaknesses of new digital processes.
As the person who can decide whether a transaction is accepted or rejected, fraud managers have a pivotal role. They’re not just preventing losses from chargebacks. They’re gatekeepers to accepting more revenue. It’s a complex job. But get it right, and they enable their business to engage customers better – across devices and places. And that can mean supporting the very growth of the business. In this landscape, the idea that a technology like machine learning might be the answer to all the industry’s needs is attractive. But while machine learning should be a key part of an effective fraud strategy, the truth is that there’s no silver bullet. So, in this paper, we’ll look at how best to put machine learning to use. By employing it in tandem with expert insight, merchants can use it to accept the optimal number of payments. And make a direct impact on the
Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable.
Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.

Given the fact that there are more mobile devices on the planet than there are human beings, engaging with customers via mobile should be a priority. Another interesting fact is that 90% of a consumer’s time while on a mobile device is spent in a brand’s app. Then consider this from Forrester: “Today’s customers demand a seamless, integrated brand experience delivered to them with ultimate simplicity and relevancy in real time.”
