The economic face of the APAC region is changing. While the East has long been considered a source of competitively priced raw materials and manufacturing services, the spending power of its inhabitants - and their increased fondness for international travel - has transformed it into a force to be reckoned with.
It’s estimated that, over the next five years, 88% of
the growth in the global middle class will be in the Asia Pacific region.1 If multinational companies hope to take advantage of this vast new target market, they will need to adapt their expansion strategies and offer APAC customers a tailored retail experience.
Doing business across borders presents a whole host of unfamiliar challenges to today’s merchant.
As technological advancement and increasing globalization unlock international markets,
it’s tempting to imagine that a business model successful in one region can simply be transplanted into another.
Not so. The logistics of domestic and international transactions have changed, and so too have customer expectations and preferences. Customer and merchants pain points have transformed and multiplied.
In this report, we explore some of the core challenges businesses today face in their quest to succeed in global commerce.
We offer an overview of how unified commerce can both resolve these issues and offer new advantages and standards of best practice, enabling your business to meet the demands
of tomorrow’s customer, no matter their location, preferred payment method, and mode of contact.

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business.

Modern technology initiatives are driving IT infrastructure in a new direction. Big data, social business, mobile applications, the cloud, and real-time analytics all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Customers increasingly drive the speed of business, and organizations need to engage with customers on their terms. The need to manage sensitive information with high levels of security as well as capture, analyze, and act upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical.

Both public and private organizations acknowledge that managing the PC lifecycle becomes more complicated and expensive as the variety of PC devices and employee workstyles increase. In order to be fully productive, different groups of employees have different needs in terms of end-user device hardware, software, and configuration. While IT departments are trying to provide and support a wider range of technology to an increasingly dispersed and mobile workforce, while maintaining low end- user disruption, they are also under a lot of cost pressure. However, consolidating processes and enlisting the help of a vendor partner, such as Dell, might reduce costs and provide expert-level knowledge for better PC lifecycle management operations.

The Android platform has quickly established itself as a dominant mobile OS for consumers. However, enterprise IT has been slower to adopt Android broadly due to lack of Enterprise Mobility Management capabilities in Android and fragmentation. But the recent release of Android Lollipop reduces fragmentation and when combined with MobileIron enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, gives IT the tools needed to easily manage and secure apps and content on all types of Android devices. This will accelerate adoption of Android devices within the enterprise.
