Change—and the innovation it creates—increasingly defines the winners and losers in today’s manufacturing industry. As successful manufacturers continue to embrace the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, and other digital transformation trends, it’s important to recognize and implement these changes or risk getting left behind by the competition.
In this Epicor eBook, we’ll look at five key areas where successful manufacturers must embrace change and use it to drive innovation, competition, and growth—including:
• The accelerating pace of technology change
• The changing face of the modern workforce
• Competing in a global manufacturing marketplace
• Tapping the power of analytics and data-driven manufacturing
• Charting a path to sustainable, cost-effective compliance
We’ll also explain how Epicor Cloud ERP equips manufacturers to regard change as an opportunity rather than a threat. Download the eBook to learn more.
Agency IT is tasked with building smarter and more responsive state and local government services, while CTOs look to enable government workforce mobility and address strategic issues, such as BYOD. Adding to the challenge is a rise in devices, data, and even multiple OS’s that IT must support and secure. With the decline in traditional Windows-based computing, these challenges are driving agencies toward cloud solutions that don't sacrifice security or IT manageability. See our featured cloud solution for government agencies that has IT leaders re-thinking how they enable mobile productivity.
Many businesses invest in analytics
technology thinking it’s a silver bullet. But
data doesn’t always tell the whole story. You
get percentages but not insights. Trends but
not necessarily relationships or patterns.
Truly impactful workforce analytics has to
do more. You have to turn data into
insight, and then put it into action.
This workbook is designed to help you
progress through the workforce analytics
maturity model. The first step in the process
is to identify where you stand today.
People are the most important
part of your organization.
Understanding what they do,
how they do it, and even why
they do it, provides invaluable
insights for optimizing your
processes, department, or
And as a business leader, in many ways
you’ve never had it so good. There’s more
people data available than ever before,
and you’ve got the opportunity to put it
to work through data-driven initiatives
like changes to workforce demographics,
employee retention, or benefits allocations.

fuel business decision-making with smart
Once you’ve learned how to turn your
people data into real business value, you’ll

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE WORK IS NO LONGER A PLACE WHERE YOU GO. It’s what you do — a dynamic activity that people expect to accomplish anywhere, anytime, on any device. Supporting today’s workforce requires a digital platform that empowers productivity and ensures security and management at scale everywhere: on site, on the road, or in the cloud.
According to IDC, by 2020, mobile workers will account for 72 percent of the U.S. workforce. And they won’t be just checking email. These workers want to be productive 24/7. That means access to data, documents, and corporate apps anywhere, anytime, on any device. Enterprises, however, are struggling to allow more workers to use additional devices from a multitude of locations.
Digital Business Continues to Move
the Cyber Goal Posts
Fortune magazine estimates that by the year 2020, US
companies will spend $101 billion per year on cyber security, up
38% from 2016. With all of the money being invested in cyber
security, why do the pace and complexity of new security threats
continue to rise year after year?
A big reason is that today’s digital business involves a more
mobile workforce with expectations of immediate and on
demand access to data fronted by intuitive and engaging
user experiences, and often underpinned by public cloud
infrastructure for increased agility and time to market.

Experts predict the number of M&A transactions will increase in 2017, but the nature of M&A is changing. The old ways of collecting data are getting to be too slow, too expensive, and too subjective. The ideal M&A transaction relies on accurate, actionable scientific insights into the target’s workforce to support the investigation, due diligence and integration aspects of M&A. hiQ Labs applies scientific rigor to publicly available data sets to forecast which employees are at risk of leaving, map the target workforce’s skills onto the buyer’s company, and identify which employees have the skills critical to the deal’s success, so M&A leaders get a faster, cheaper, and accurate solution based on science.
