Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
In April 2016, SAP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how enterprises are taking advantage of IoT, how IoT fits into broader digital transformation initiatives, and the role of immediate insights in realizing the benefits that IoT can deliver.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
La sécurité est une préoccupation permanente pour les entreprises Le paysage des menaces ne cesse de se développer et les attaques sont de plus en plus complexes. Si les technologies émergentes telles que l'Internet des objets (IoT), la mobilité et les environnements informatiques hybrides font apparaître de nouvelles opportunités commerciales, elles introduisent également de nouveaux types de risques. Protéger les serveurs au niveau logiciel n'est plus suffisant ; pour garder un temps d'avance sur les menaces, les entreprises doivent se protéger au niveau des systèmes physiques. Avec la multiplication des contraintes réglementaires, la conformité joue un rôle de plus en plus critique à la fois sur l'augmentation de la sécurité et sur la réduction du coût des non-conformités. Ces différents aspects étant extrêmement critiques, il est très important de définir des niveaux de protection matérielle et d'appliquer les mesures de sécurité jusqu'à la chaîne d’approvisionnement. À cet effet,
Das Thema Sicherheit droht, sich für Unternehmen zum Problem zu entwickeln. Die Zahl der Sicherheitsbedrohungen nimmt zu und die Angriffe werden immer raffinierter. Neue Technologien wie das IoT, mobile Lösungen und Hybrid IT-Umgebungen bieten zwar neue Geschäftschancen, bringen aber auch neue Risiken mit sich. Heutzutage reicht es daher nicht mehr aus, die Server auf Softwareebene zu schützen. Unternehmen müssen den Schutz bis auf die physischen Systeme ausweiten, um gegen Sicherheitsbedrohungen gewappnet zu sein. Angesichts der immer größeren Zahl an regulatorischen Bestimmungen im heutigen Geschäftsumfeld gewinnt die Einhaltung dieser Bestimmungen an Bedeutung – zum einen, um das
Sicherheitsniveau zu verbessern, zum anderen, um die Kosten zu senken, die durch die Nichteinhaltung dieser Bestimmungen entstehen. Da diese Aspekte von so kritischer Bedeutung sind, ist es wichtig, den Schutz der Hardware zu verbessern und das Sicherheitsniveau bis auf Lieferkettenebene zu erhöhen.
IoT has proven its value in the private sector. Ever since the 1980’s, US manufacturing has undergone a dramatic transition based on IoT. Machines that where once manually calibrated and maintained began to be controlled by specialized computers. These computers were able to quickly recalibrate tools which allowed manufactures to produce smaller batches of parts, but were also often locked into proprietary computing languages and architectures.

Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo
