cloud is no longer an option — it’s inevitable. But cloud strategies differ extensively, based on the context of your organization and investments. drivers such as industry, risk tolerance, and preparation dictate the pace, scope, and technologies you need. However, every cloud strategy should share key activities. This report guides infrastructure and operations (i&O) pros through forrester’s cloud maturity assessment so they can gauge where their firms are on their journeys and discover which core competencies they need to strengthen or develop to enable their pragmatic cloud reality.
This is an update of a previously published report; forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
The alternative investment industry is increasingly feeling the impact of digital technologies, but are hedge funds and private equity firms moving quickly enough to adapt to the digital world? Read now KPMG's report Alternative investments 3.0 and understand how the alternative investment industry can embrace disruption and accelerate digital innovation.
The asset and fund management industry has grown signifcantly in the last decade, with surveys indicating about 65 percent growth since 2007, to over USD 80 trillion in assets under management worldwide.
As its importance to the world financial system – linking those with money to invest with enterprises and activities that require funding – is increasingly recognized, so both the industry and the regulators that police the sector become more prominent.
The industry and regulators are coming under pressure from a range of “external” voices – demanding investors and consumer groups, clamoring political and economic needs, changing priorities and hopes of civil society, an increasingly noisy press, the explosion in social media and the rapid growth of new technologies.
This sea of voices is directly influencing the regulatory agenda and increasing expectations on the industry. A fundamental rethink of firms’ mindset and investment offerings is required.
Welcome to KPMG’s third annual report tracking developments in China’s pension industry. This is a topic of great economic significance. As the world’s most populous country, China has an ageing society and is developing the infrastructure to take care of a growing number of elderly people. The topic also has business significance, especially for financial companies able to find opportunities in the fast-growing pension sector.
This report updates and builds on our findings from last year. That report identified sector convergence as one of the most distinct features of the Chinese pension industry, as well as highlighted several strategic themes that will influence its long-term development. In the pages that follow, we explain the most recent developments and their strategic implications.

“In each of the last five years, the industry lost a quarter billion in motor insurance," says Colm Carey, chief analytics officer. "So, there's a huge push for new data, models, ways to segment and pick profitable customer types—and get a lot more sophisticated. Our goal is to optimize pricing, understand the types of customers we're bringing, and the types we're trying to attract. We would like to tie that across the business. Marketing will run a campaign, trying to attract a lot of customers, but maybe they're not the right type. "We wanted to step away from industry standard software and go with something that was powerful and future-proof. In 2016, we had an opportunity to analyze all software.

Infinidat provides the difference you seek in a data storage solution for media and entertainment organizations. New demands have everyone in the industry feeling the impact of high latency storage and its impact on efficiently delivering speed to market on new and dense workload management. The Infinidat unified storage architecture enables the scale, performance and best overall TCO required to deliver an extreme competitive advantage to media and entertainment companies.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?
Data continues to grow at an astounding pace? As a result, data center space is becoming more scarce, as more arrays are acquired to store all of this data. Along with this data taking up space, it is also utilizing a great deal of power and cooling. In fact, the average data center in the U.S. uses approximately 34,000 kW of electricity each year, costing $180,000 in annual energy costs. As Infinidat set out to revolutionize the storage industry, one of our goals was to help consumers of storage build a more sustainable infrastructure that would be not only better for the environment, but also help them to save money as well. All of our patents come together to form InfiniBox, a storage solution that does just this.
