Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are emerging technologies that will transform organizations faster than ever before. In the digital transformation era, success will be based on using analytics to discover the insights locked in the massive volume of data being generated today. Historically, these insights were discovered through manually intensive data analytics—but the amount of data continues to grow, as does the complexity of data. AI and ML are the latest tools for data scientists, enabling them to refine the data into value faster.
Knowledge workers today have a rich portfolio of team collaboration tools to help them get their jobs done, starting with email and encompassing texting, file sharing, online chat and message boards, social media and video conferencing. Yet collaboration across these tools can be a frustrating experience, due to the complexity of the technology and lack of integration. The good news: the application of emerging technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) enables more people to connect when and how they need to. And that makes for more productive teams.
Emerging technologies and automation permeate every aspect of our work and lives today. The real opportunity of these technologies — which include artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, the Internet of Things (IoT), and human interfaces — is to enable us to embrace innovation on a scale never seen before. These technologies help us reimagine what’s possible in work and in life - from self-driving cars and personalized medicine to precision agriculture and smart cities that are changing the way we experience our world. Autonomous opens a new world of opportunities for enterprises.

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.
Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.
Visibility remains a huge challenge for CFOs in today’s dynamic and ever-evolving business environment.
A study of more than 500 CFOs and senior finance executives conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by Coupa, reveals that more than 60 percent of CFOs lack complete visibility into the transactions within their organization. Sound familiar?
Read the report to learn how CFOs are responding in a rapidly evolving world where new technologies, uncertainty, and emerging threats abound. The report also includes five qualitative interviews with the CFOs from Ally Financial, Driftwood Acquisitions and Development, Hays, Micron Technologies, and Zendesk.

The goal of ESG Lab reports is to educate IT professionals about data center technology products for companies of all types and sizes.
ESG Lab reports are not meant to replace the evaluation process that should be conducted before making purchasing decisions, but rather to provide insight into these emerging technologies. Our objective is to go over some of the more valuable feature/functions of products, show how they can be used to solve real customer problems and identify any areas needing improvement.
ESG Lab's expert third party perspective is based on our own hands on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production environments.

Technology adoption varies from sector to sector, company to company and department to
department. We asked 4000 leaders about their views on technology to find out which had the
potential to cause serious innovation.
It might be surprising to know that
although its adoption levels are lower than other emerging
technologies, artificial intelligence is most exciting to HR leaders. However, chatbots are what
people want to hear less about.
How did the other 4 technologies fare? The

More often than not, performance and security are thought of as two separate issues that require two separate solutions. This is mainly due to the implications posed behind various performance and security products. We typically have either security solutions or performance solutions, but rarely solutions that offer both. As technology has advanced, so have our attackers, finding newer and better ways to impact both the performance and security of a site. With this in mind, it has become even more critical to come up with solutions that bridge the gap between security and performance. But how do we do that? We need to shift the focus to what we can do at the browser by leveraging various frontend techniques, such as web linking and obfuscation, versus solely relying upon the capabilities of a content delivery network (CDN) or the origin. We can take advantage of all the new and emerging frontend technologies to help provide a secure and optimal experience for users—all starting at the
Digital transformation has fundamentally disrupted global manufacturing. It’s not just a single technological advancement; it’s a full range of emerging technologies that are revolutionizing the industry. Social, mobile, Big Data, analytics, cloud, and the Internet of Things are re-defining every organization’s operating models.
