Schneider Electric surveyed over 400 worldwide machine builders and factory end users in 2015. The questions they answered all centered around what their machines and plants would need to look like in 2020 if their businesses were to sustain growth and boost productivity. Their feedback has shaped (and will continue to shape) Schneider Electric digitized solution investments.
Key requirements identified included:
• Tools that could accommodate a younger, less skilled, and less experienced workforce
• A need for simpler integration through open software connectivity and more open field buses
• A need for whole lifecycle support of the products they purchase
Read this eBook to see answers to some of these identified key points from those surveyed.
In this webinar Black Duck Software (www.blackducksoftware.com), together with representatives of SAP, will review the benefits open source offers to development organizations, the management challenges it presents, and approaches for addressing those challenges.
A data science platform is where all data science work takes place and acts as the system of record for predictive models. While a few leading model-driven businesses have made the data science platform an integral part of their enterprise architecture, most companies are still trying to understand what a data science platform is and how it fits into their architecture. Data science is unlike other technical disciplines, and models are not like software or data. Therefore, a data science platform requires a different type of technology platform.
This document provides IT leaders with the top 10 questions to ask of data science platforms to ensure the platform handles the uniqueness of data science work.

Connected organizations collaborate across business functions to dynamically steer business performance. Previous generations of planning software have fallen short of this vision, making collaboration difficult to achieve, scattering data across multiple sources, and providing inflexible planning models that require heavy IT support.
This landscape motivated Anaplan to develop an innovative platform that enables Connected Planning across the entire enterprise. The FSN Innovation Showcase highlights three major innovations that support these objectives:
• Anaplan’s proprietary Hyperblock® technology
• The App Hub, a suite of 250+ industry-leading solutions
• Developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.

Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
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.
BitSight relied on a key piece of software for business. As the number of software users grew, the complexity of deploying, managing, and maintaining a VPN infrastructure became a big, ongoing headache for IT.
Read the case study to see how Akamai helped BitSight solve their access issues.
As the shift into a digital economy continues to accelerate, companies must out-innovate, outthink, and outpace their competition. Businesses must embrace change and transform to become the disruptors in their industries rather than wait to be disrupted by their competitors.
In the face of this pressure to evolve, organizations need to transform IT to reduce both the capital and operational costs of legacy IT. They must offload repeatable and time-intensive manual tasks like backup, disaster recovery, and service deployment to software and policy-driven automation.
