The implications of AI’s unique approach are profound: AI can learn by example rather than through brute-force programming; can understand human intention and emotions and act accordingly; and can handle extraordinarily complex relationships of data that are beyond the capability of human analysts working alone.
AI can multiply what we currently do and take us to experiences we’ve never had before, at a speed and scale that will change entire industries. In these case studies, we’re pleased to present a range of real-world examples to guide your imagination. Here, you’ll find situations where companies like yours found AI to be part of the solution. These examples show how AI can enhance an existing application, workflow or process and reduce friction.

Its the start of a new year and amidst the countless predictions flooding the internet, one things for certain 2019 is shaping up to be the year of cloud adoption. Analysts are expecting that enterprise adoption of cloud will ramp up significantly, but with this migration and the continued adoption of mobile and IoT technologies, the attack surface is changing dramatically and this has major implications for security.
Fundamentally, security boundaries extend from on premises infrastructure to cloud service provider environments where perimeters no longer exist. Organizations cannot defend themselves with the same strategies and tactics that applied when it did. In this brave new world of cloud, IoT and mobile technology, organizations must be agile and shift, extend, and evolve their perimeter-based defense practices to those that are more robust. Further, a comprehensive defense in depth approach enables defense of high value assets amidst a more unpredictable cyber security landsca
How are organizations balancing self-service analytics and data governance today? What are the trends for tomorrow?
Many organizations are on their way to achieving self-service analytics maturity through the use of intuitive data visualization technologies aimed at non-technical users; as well as various tactics that reduce reliance on IT. But handing the analytics reins entirely to business users can make governance nearly impossible. As a result, organizations are increasing investments in modern analytics platforms that enable a balance between IT governing and curating data, empowering business users to derive insights from data mostly on their own and without delay.

When asked how important technology is to driving innovation in their organizations, 100 percent of CEOs indicated it was important, with 80 percent pointing out that it’s very important, according to HP sponsored research. Even CIOs agree with their CEOs.
According to the same research, when asked whether or not technology will be the innovation engine or administrative engine for a business or government, approximately two out of three CEOs said it would be the “innovation engine.” This represents a significant shift in the role that technology is playing in enterprises.
Today, organizations demand new applications and more functionality delivered more quickly, and at a lower cost than ever before. Many organizations either want a mobile application or are already using one. In fact, according to analysts, by 2016 350 million employees will use smartphones at work and businesses will increase spending on mobile projects over 100 percent in the same time.
In this whitepaper, we describe how executive and IT management can get and maintain control of their company's data architecture to help meet business objectives. We describe the relationship between data integration projects and data architecture concepts and practices. We describe how the business planning and IT development processes that direct and leverage data integration projects depend on tooling. We describe breakthrough ways in which data architects, business analysts, programmers, and business users can collaborate to address their organization's pressing business challenges.

The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution.
SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching:
1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment.
2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video.
SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs.

"Many large enterprises struggle to decide which workloads and systems should be deployed in the public cloud versus on premise. With a strong on-premises platform in place, organizations benefit from increased reliability, speed, and security. On the other hand, by leveraging the public cloud, they gain increased flexibility and recovery capabilities. So, what goes best where?
Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analysts at Aberdeen Group and Chuck Hollis, Senior VP at Oracle, will provide guidance aimed at helping organizations choose the right platforms for their critical workloads. They will analyze how Best-in-Class enterprises effectively integrate on-premises solutions and the public cloud, and recommend steps that businesses can take to become IT infrastructure leaders."

Marketing agencies are driven by creativity. But turning your agency’s project work into profit isn’t easy when you’re dealing with the pressures of growing client expectations, over servicing, scope creep and eroding margins.
In this 3-minute video, Laura Ramos, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst, looks at the challenges and opportunities facing marketing agencies today and ways they can build strategic value with CMO clients to drive success.
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.
Whilst businesses of all kinds are utilizing data analytics, many are still only using it to make simple changes that lead to a set of rigid processes. Whereas the more customer-focused organizations are realizing that to deliver exceptional experiences, they need to be able to react to customer data in real-time and predict what might happen next. And that means going beyond simple analytics.
