And it should lead to a rethinking of the often-adversarial relationship that users have with IT, helping the organization move from reactive to proactive.
This whitepaper evaluates how the landscape for client computing has changed in this new era, while retaining all of the productivity benefits we’ve come to expect from the PC.

This study by Cambridge Judge Business School looks at major transformative innovations across a number of industries in order to develop a predictive model for business transformation that can
help guide leaders in the future. This model is based on what we term “Six Degrees of Innovation” – six matching patterns between trends in technology and market needs that occur with regularity in transformative and successful business models.

Agile software development is no longer a fad, a niche methodology, or just for startups: it’s a requirement for any modern and adaptive development organization. Without the adoption of agile practices, your business may be challenged to keep pace with customer commitments, beat the competition to market, and establish a roadmap for strategic innovation. But a proven framework for agile transformation—including services and tooling can enhance your productivity and speed, and support you as you scale.
Agile Softwareentwicklung ist keine Modeerscheinung bzw. keine Nischenmethode mehr, und sie ist auch nicht nur für Start-ups relevant: Sie ist eine Voraussetzung für jede moderne und anpassungsfähige Softwareentwicklungsabteilung. Ohne die Einführung agiler Praktiken kann es Ihrem Unternehmen Probleme bereiten, mit Kundenverpflichtungen Schritt zu halten, im Wettbewerb zu bestehen und eine Roadmap für strategische Innovationen zu erstellen. Ein bewährtes Framework für die agile Transformation, das Services und Tools umfasst, kann Ihre Produktivität und Ihre Geschwindigkeit jedoch steigern und Ihr Wachstum unterstützen.

As the pressures of digital disruption force companies to either transform or die, companies in Asia’s BFSI sector are rushing to integrate cutting-edge technologies and roll-out innovative new services to their customers.
Fortunately, thanks to rapidly advancing technologies, developments in the regulatory landscape and the initiative of leading BFSI organisations, we are seeing incredible examples of innovation within the sector on a monthly, if not weekly, basis.
The digital economy is transforming the financial services sector. The pace of innovation is accelerating, customers have higher expectations than ever, and new competitors are emerging from nontraditional markets. At the same time, financial services has long been a favorite target of cyber attackers, and despite firms’ best efforts, cybersecurity threats are rising and attacks are more successful than ever. Financial services firms need a more effective, adaptable approach to detecting and stopping cyberthreats.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
