Did you know that more than 1.2 billion people use Microsoft Office?
That’s one in 7 people. A huge portion of the world’s economy is managed through it: from small businesses all the way up to Fortune 500 corporations.
Despite its popularity, Excel has its fair share of critics. What originated as rumblings among IT professionals and tech blogs, has quickly trickled into major business and technology publications. Some might think it harsh, but we want to show you the risks of using Excel in your business and help you understand how you can protect yourself, your company and your data from what Forbes refers to as ‘the most dangerous software on the planet’.
Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.
For 20 years running, SAS has landed a coveted spot on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list. Our HR department plays a critical role in keeping current employees engaged and productive as well as anticipating and preparing for future workforce needs. How? One reason is our use of data and analytics to drive HR decision making. It would be easy to assume other companies see the value of analytics; however, a Deloitte survey found 75 percent of HR leaders rate analytics as a priority, yet only 8 percent say their HR organization has a strong analytics capability.
I had the pleasure of meeting David Harcourt, Associate Manager of Employee Insights at Yum! Brands when he spoke at the Analytics Experience 2016 conference in Las Vegas. His session, “HR Analytics from Scratch: 8 Lessons Learned in the First Year,” provided valuable insight into what it takes to build HR analytic competency from scratch. His mission is to share with others what he wishes he’d known when he started bui
Customers now expect the same level of service on social media from financial firms, insurance providers, and other regulated enterprises as they receive from technology and retail companies. But without the right compliance controls in place, your organization could violate customer privacy rules and other regulatory guidelines.
Are you taking the right steps to ensure compliance?
Among all the trends and buzzwords currently shaking up the marketing industry, one concept is emerging as the one
to watch: customer experience (CX). Providing individual customers with the best possible experience is becoming the
top priority at the moment, even to the point where experience outshines product quality(!) as the main differentiator.
This is confirmed by a recent Gartner1
survey, in which 86 percent of participating companies listed customer experience
as the main factor for gaining a competitive advantage, compared with merely 36 percent in 2012.
Die Automobilindustrie befindet sich mitten in einer hart umkämpften Übergangsphase, deren letztendliches Ziel darin besteht, innerhalb eines Jahrzehnts vollständig autonome oder „fahrerlose“ Fahrzeuge zu realisieren. Die Größenordnung und Intensität, mit der OEMs und Tier1-Lieferanten Innovationen auf den Markt bringen und gleichzeitig Kosten eindämmen, Risiken mindern, die Produktkomplexität managen und die Compliance aufrechterhalten müssen, bedeuten eine große Herausforderung.
Die Entwicklung von Fahrerassistenzsystemen (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, ADAS), die die Sicherheit von Insassen, Fahrzeugen und Straßen verbessern sollen, bringt revolutionäre Anforderungen an die Engineering-IT-Infrastruktur mit sich–insbesondere für Speicher, bei dem selbst Entry-Level-Kapazitäten in Petabyte gemessen werden. In diesem Whitepaper werden die Infrastruktur-herausforderungen erkundet, vor denen OEMs und Tier1-Lieferanten bei der Entwicklung und Validierung vonADAS-Technologien steh

DevSecOps, modern web application design and high-profile breaches are expanding the scope of the AST market. Security and risk management leaders will need to meet tighter deadlines and test more complex applications by accelerating efforts to integrate and automate AST in the software life cycle.
We all use APIs every day. The demands of digital transformation, and the related need for platforms and ecosystems, make it essential to manage APIs throughout their life cycle. We identify the pros and cons of a wide range of API management vendors and offerings, to help you make the right choice.
Traditional web applications pre-date modern standards like SAML and OpenIDConnect, so they often use legacy authentication methods to grant end users access. Historically, providing Single Sign-On and centralized access management for end users across these legacy applications required a Web Access Management, or WAM, product. These on-premises software tools could be expensive to maintain and complex to deploy. Now, modern identity providers like Okta in conjunction with best-of-breed network management technologies offer a better way. This white paper describes how web applications that lack modern standard support can be integrated into a cloud-based Identity-as-a-service architecture.
Businesses of all sizes struggle with aging gear and lack of storage. In fact, in a 2018 Enterprise Storage Forum survey, IT and business leaders cited these concerns as their two biggest storage infrastructure challenges. But in mid- to enterprise-sized businesses, where every dollar counts, fixing these problems can feel like a tall order. If you’re going to upgrade your storage, you need to make sure you’re getting an efficient array that will help you maximize the value of your storage and your data.
We tested two storage arrays to see which could best help organizations meet these goals: the Dell EMC™ Unity™ XT 880F, and an all-flash offering in the entry-level market from a competitor (“Vendor A”). In our hands-on testing, the Dell EMC Unity XT array processed up to 93 percent more input/output operations per second (IOPS) in an 8KB 100% random read test and reduced 129 percent more data. It also carried out common management tasks faster, cutting the number of deployment steps i

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.
See why an appropriate time and attendance system that meets your organization’s needs can help to eliminate and prevent most of the negative aspects of inaccurate and unreliable timekeeping for your business.
As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents in India saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The Solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.
