"The percentage of consumers making purchases online has officially outpaced those who don’t.
But what does this mean for brands? Once tethered largely to wholesale and resale, the door has been opened for brands to try a variety of selling options. And they are.
The time is now for brands to step into the e-commerce game and figure out the best approach for them.
In this white paper, we’ll dive into six critical components that all brands should be watching as the industry evolves:
- Customer connections
- Relationships with retailers
- Quality of product content
- Marketplace management
- Social commerce influence
- Big data for brands"

Digital technologies are rewriting the rulebooks across industries. They are not only having a profound impact on how organizations work, but are also redefining the parameters of productivity and success. Organizations that can evolve and embrace this fast paced, digital world that we live in are more likely to be successful. However, given the rapid pace at which digital trends are evolving, what might be an industry standard at one moment can be displaced the next. This means that for enterprises, simply striving to keep up might no longer be enough, as businesses need to lead the way with new technology in their industries.
Infosys commissioned an independent market research company, Vanson Bourne, to investigate the use of digital technologies and key trends in nine industries. This exclusive report covers:

Did you know that majority of the respondents in a recent survey identified digital skillset (57%), senior leadership commitment (50%), and change management (42%) areas as the most important success factors for digital transformation?
Infosys commissioned an independent survey of over 1,000 senior management level executives from organizations with annual revenues over US$ 1 billion to understand the impact of digital disruption on their organizations and how they were dealing with it. Three clusters emerged from the survey findings, based on the business objectives behind their digital transformation initiatives- Visionaries, Explorers, and Watchers. The survey provides valuable insights into how organizations can evolve from being watchers and explorers to visionaries.
Key findings from the report that you can use to charter your digital future:
Visionaries target higher order business objectives, such as new business models and culture, from digital transformation, while explore

The enterprise data center has undergone several major shifts since the introduction of
computing as a business resource. Data centers have evolved from mainframes to client/server
to virtual servers, and then to being “software defned,” and fnally to their current state of disaggregation. Today, we sit on the precipice of the next major data center transition—the evolution
to an intent-based data center (IBDC) (Exhibit 1). Each transition saw the cost of computing
decrease and the importance of the network increase, and each enabled organizations to boost
the efciency of their data center operations and improve asset utilization—ultimately leading to a
better experience for users
AOS delivers powerful, intent-driven automation of network services in vendor-agnostic environments by delivering it as an easily consumable service in response to consumer-specified intent. Network devices serve packets, AOS services serve application workloads.
According to numerous studies, 70-80% of outages are due to configuration change applied to a living system, and not due to initial deployment. Initial, one-time deployment can be seen as sort of a “hello world” application; the real complexities arise as the system evolves. With AOS, configuration, telemetry, and expectations are derived from the single source of truth - the intent - in an idempotent fashion, and as such there is no implementation difference between initial deployment or change management.
As enterprises evolve to the 3rd Platform of IT, they will reap many benefits and face many challenges. Meeting the rapid pace of business and taking control of the customer experience must be balanced with keeping assets secure as the enterprise perimeter expands or dissolves altogether.

This Executive Brief sheds light on the risk of cybercrime by profiling several "generations" of cybercriminals over time, and pointing out how the criminals, their methods and motivations have evolved.
Financial services organizations have a unique relationship with technology: electronic data and transactions are the core of this industry. Financial services firms remain vigilant because they are constantly under attack. Hackers that gain access to customer accounts or financial data can profit either by using it themselves or by selling it to other criminal organizations.
- There are many differences between perception and reality when it comes to security in this industry. For example, its emphasis on fraud prevention creates the perception that financial services is highly evolved in terms of its security readiness. However, this study finds that financial services firms’ security is on a par with the security of firms in other industries.
- Regulations may lead to change and investments, but they also take time to take effect. Organizations should not wait for such requirements before they make improvements. Neither should they assume that compliance gives them full protection. Regulations cannot cover every aspect in such a fast-paced environment.
Machine learning is all around us, from our smart home applications to driverless automobiles. The efficiency of automated decision-making is changing the game in cybersecurity, expanding the capabilities of humans by sifting through enormous quantities of data and presenting it as actionable intelligence.
Machine learning makes security teams better, and vice versa. Human-machine teams deliver the best of both worlds, allowing endpoint security to continually evolve to stop new attack tactics. Your team deserves the best that cybersecurity has to offer, and today the best endpoint security products leverage machine learning.

Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market. To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.
