This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in cybersecurity and automated remediation, featuring GigaOm analyst Jon Collins and a special guest from Puppet, Jonathan Stewart. The discussion will focus on how enterprise security and operations teams can significantly enhance their response to security threats via a collaborative, automated approach to resolution. Cybersecurity often feels like an asymmetric battle — while on one side, cybercriminals appear to manage their efforts efficiently on the dark web, enterprises often deal with the consequences individually, reliant on manual processes and tools. So, what can we learn from the perpetrators about how to coordinate a response to security threats when, or before, they happen? In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn: How cybercriminals and hackers work together to create and disseminate security threats What current challenges are faced by enterprises as they look to respond What options exist to deal wi

This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in IT infrastructure and cloud featuring GigaOm analyst Mark Thiele and special guest from Packet, Jacob Smith. The discussion will focus on what can be done if a business has a need or desire to run application environments outside public cloud; and, in the age of public cloud adoption, what can companies do to remain competitive from an IT perspective. Most companies aren’t professional data center or infrastructure builders, and they shouldn’t have to be. This is in fact a driver for cloud adoption. Price, Performance, Proximity, Pride and Politics are reasons why enterprises might need more control at times over their infrastructure. This 1-hour webinar will explore: The considerations an enterprise must make when looking for a private cloud solution Examples of what others have done with managed private cloud If Managed Private Cloud can be cost-competitive with Public Cloud or on-prem IT.

We’re seeing a global trend towards responsible investing. Increasingly, institutional investors are recognising the potential for ESG factors to affect the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in. At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the younger generation. “Responsible” or “sustainable” finance and a focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have moved firmly into the mainstream today. This booklet presents the proof to address the issues around responsible investment implementation: statistics from across investment markets that show how significant this shift is.

Around the globe, voices clamoring for climate-aware investing and carbon controlsare increasing. Demand for ethical treatment of employees, customers and other stakeholders is also growing, as is indignation about poorly-managed companies. Companies are subject to an increasing set of non-financial reporting requirements relating to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. A swathe of new requirements will soon impact the investment and lending appetites of EU financial institutions. Coupled with increasing investor demands, these new rules could have a profound impact on companies’ ability to raise capital, within the EU and beyond.

When we first launched the Women In Alternative Investments Report (WAI Report) in 2001, we were among the few voices talking about women’s advancement in alternative investments. It was a delicate conversation and one that few people were comfortable having. But no, eight years later, the conversation has shifted. The issues have moved mainstream, the dialogue has broadened, and the voices are many. The needle may not have moved substantially, but change is afoot. And so, this year we too are making a change. This year, the WAI Report is about action. This year, we expose gaps in perception across gender to lay the groundwork for shared understanding. We spotlight investors’ increased focus on diversity in the hopes that it spurs others to action. And we outline firm diversity practices to show others the way forward in their own efforts.

Navigating technology disruption is now a business norm, propelling organizations to both experiment with and deploy advanced digital products and services that increasingly collect, leverage and ultimately create value from abundant amounts of data. The continuous nature of technology development, and the ability to drive customer engagement and gain performance enhancements through digital transformation, generates significant excitement at a board level — both as an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage, as well as being a catalyst for disruption. The ability to achieve agility in what is now a continuous process of transformation and innovation is fast defining success for organizations, and maintaining trust in the age of the customer is becoming a differentiator for those able to act and demonstrate an understanding of their consumer’s concerns. In this new survey, our aim was to assess whether there has been a shift in consumer expectations regarding digital trust, and whe

Welcome to the latest edition of KPMG’s The Pulse of Fintech — a biannual report showcasing key activities and trends within the fintech market globally and in key regions around the world. After a record-setting 2018, the first half of 2019 got off to a quiet start for fintech investment globally — mirroring a trend seen in the broader VC market. The steep drop-off in investment reflected the lack of blockbuster deals such as the $14 billion raise by Ant Financial or Vantiv’s acquisition of Worldpay for $12.9 billion during H1’18. Global uncertainty, regulatory changes in China, and the US-China trade tensions likely also contributed to the decline. Fintech investment in Asia Pacific plummeted during the first half of the year, driven by uncertainty and increased regulatory scrutiny in China. Meanwhile, despite the ongoing concerns around Brexit, fintech investment got off to a very strong start in Europe. While well off the pace required to match 2018’s massive investment record, fin

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.

Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage. Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%

R O I : T H E H O LY GRAIL OF CX Return on Investment (ROI) is the holy grail of customer (CX), employee (EX) and market (MX) experiences. Every practitioner wants to prove it’s real, but the quest to find it can be fraught with peril and, in the end, many businesses end up believing it’s completely fictional. This ebook will delve into the mysteries of the financial impact of experience programs and how you can implement and measure experience initiatives designed to deliver ROI. Why is the ROI of experiences so hard to establish? The answer is twofold: 1. ROI is not a single number; it’s wide-ranging and can be found in any part of the enterprise. 2. Many businesses focus too much on the end goal (ROI), but fail to establish a program with the necessary elements required for success.

The maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and industrial distribution industry is massive and continues to grow at a steady pace. Despite this positive outlook, individual MRO distributors aren’t short on their own challenges when it comes to retaining and growing their market share. There are several factors hindering MRO companies from retaining the share they have and claiming more. Namely: • Complexity: Their large customer counts and behemoth SKU counts render it impossible to give reps market-aligned pricing guidance and sales intelligence • Competition: MRO is ripe for poaching by Amazon, and as a result, traditional distributors continue to see market share slipping away to the online giant • Skills: A massive generational shift in the workforce is resulting in a skills gap that’s proving particularly problematic to fill In this playbook for MRO and industrial products distributors, we will discuss how growth is hindered in this dynamic industry and then provide reimagin

In a culture of immediacy, they also expect engagement at their exact moment of need. What’s more, this level of engagement is viewed as standard across the entire customer journey, prompting marketers to think well beyond their traditional domain.
