The Cisco 2016 Annual Security Report—which presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research—highlights the challenges that defenders face in detecting and blocking attackers who employ a rich and ever-changing arsenal of tools. The report also includes research from external experts, such as Level 3 Threat Research Labs, to help shed more light on current threat trends.
We take a close look at data compiled by Cisco researchers to show changes over time, provide insights on what this data means, and explain how security professionals should respond to threats.

: FICO commissioned an independent research study by TM Forum to look at how global telecommunication providers are using (and plan to use) machine learning and advanced analytics to improve the customer experience in credit risk and beyond. This in-depth report includes key insights from a global survey as well as executive interviews with leading communication service providers such as Telstra, Vodafone, Sky, Globe Telecom, and BT on their vision for leveraging artificial intelligence to stop fraud, better engage customers across channels, improve risk management, and drive collection results.
Read this report to understand:
o What CSPs see as the biggest drivers for deploying advanced analytics over the next two years
o How and where BT, Globe Telecom, Vodafone UK, Sky and Telstra are using analytics, from marketing through origination
o The opportunities and pitfalls around financing devices as opposed to or in addition to subsidising them
o The scope for analytics to improve c
Groundbreaking research in customer behavior has revealed that the way humans respond to brands is simply an extension of the way they instinctively perceive, judge and behave towards one another. That insight could revolutionize your brand strategy.
To better understand competitive retail dynamics and help guide
retailers’ strategies, Cisco undertook a comprehensive, three-pronged research project, the fifth annual installment of our retail industry analysis. It comprised:
1. A survey of more than 6000 consumers (all having Internet access) 2 in 10 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, United Kingdom, and United States.
2. In-depth interviews with industry thought leaders—analysts, authors, and innovators including Leslie Hand, vice president, IDC
Retail Insights; Michael Olmstead, director, Plug and Play Retail; and Doug Stephens, founder, Retail Prophet
3. An IoE retail economic model drawn from an analysis of the data and lessons learned from Cisco customer engagements.
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
The volume of customer data that marketing departments possess continues to grow at explosive rates. But new research from the Aberdeen Group finds that less than 40% of marketers use this information to optimize and target their campaigns. This "data rich, insight poor" phenomenon is examined in their new white paper, which identifies common analytics challenges-and shows how you can rise above them.

With the support of SAS, the Internet of Things Institute developed the 2017 Internet of Things ROI Research Study to gather real-world insights, lessons learned and future guidance from current users of IoT technology and advanced analytics. This selective sample of IoT users offers valuable insights to both IoT innovators and organizations still waiting to see how the technology evolves before investing.
Multiple business layers and functions have input into IoT decision making. Discover which layer was most critical to success for those organizations that have achieved the highest percentage of their targeted ROI. Learn about the main drivers of success for IoT users achieving higher returns. Lastly, the results highlight six primary factors that can undermine an IoT initiative and how they can be prevented.

Perfect order fulfillment requires companies to have seamless integration of all supply chain execution (SCE) including, logistics processes from manufacturing, transportation, warehouse, global trade to mobile and RFID. Recent research from Gartner reveals that most supply chain organizations continue to operate as functional silos – warehousing, transportation and manufacturing – with minimal, if any, process integration and synchronization between execution silos. The Gartner Research report provides key insights into how supply chain and IT leaders can transform logistics by breaking down functional silos, and designing business processes that span, optimize and synchronize across traditional functional domains.
