In the past, companies have been able to adopt and utilize a business-as-usual IT infrastructure and get away with it. They purchased hardware to keep pace with data growth, managed multiple servers, and hired an ever-increasing workforce to ensure their organization succeeded. But with diminishing budgets and fewer resources, these institutions can no longer afford to carry out each and every one of these processes to maintain their IT infrastructure.
While there’s no hotter topic at the intersection of business and technology than AI, Avanade research shows that 88% of global business and IT decision-makers say they don’t know how to use AI, and 79% say that internal resistance limits their implementation of it. It doesn’t have to be this way. Human-centered AI, which focuses on augmenting the workforce to improve customer and employee experiences, can contribute directly to achieving business goals.
This point of view discusses the ways your organization can take advantage of a human-centered AI approach, including redefining jobs and creating a digital ethics framework.
The challenges facing industrial companies grow more daunting by the day. Globalization, energy markets that change in real time, variations in materials and prices, aging of the industrial workforce, inability to attract the next generation of Talent, and difficult regulatory pressures have all contributed to an extremely stressful industrial business environment. Fortunately, the right automation system can now offer cutting-edge packaging solutions for meeting at least three of these challenges.

The enterprise landscape has changed dramatically with the influx of millennials — and their preferred devices — into the workforce. As a result, Macs that were once limited to mostly niche usage are now rapidly expanding their enterprise footprint. These devices require the same level of security and oversight that organizations apply to all of their other devices. Otherwise, the risk of leaving Macs either unmanaged or secured by point products creates security gaps that can leave the enterprise open to cyberattacks and compliance violations.
The good news is, MobileIron makes it easy to secure Macs the same way all other devices in the enterprise are managed. No integrations, additional training, or learning curves are involved. The time has come for a modern approach to Mac management that is seamless for end users, improves operational efficiency, and simplifies IT operations across the entire device lifecycle. MobileIron makes it all possible.

While we tend to think about mobility largely as a consumer phenomenon, it is also changing how the workforce carries
out business. With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service
organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile tablets and smartphones as productivity tools for
agents, representatives and personnel, and developing enterprise apps for these devices.
The importance of nurturing a talented workforce cannot be understated. It enables your organization to perform effectively today, while also preparing you for future growth. But in reality, how many are companies actually nurturing their employees?
With aging workforces and a shortage of critical talent being among the biggest challenges facing today's businesses, strategic workforce planning has become one of of HR's most important responsibilities.
How important is compensation management in motivating your workforce? It is one of the top five job-satisfaction factors. Learn how to reward employees and yet hold steady on payroll costs in this complimentary SuccessFactors white paper.
Technological advances are disrupting the status quo and bringing huge turmoil in their wake. Industries are converging, and new competitors emerging, as never before. The nature of work is changing and demand for digital expertise is soaring, while other skills are becoming defunct. So how can CHROs chart a path through the turbulence and help their fellow executives understand the impact on the workforce?
Companies are looking at technology as not just a disrupter, but also an enabler to transform their people, projects, and entire organizations into a highly adaptable and change-ready enterprise. In short, business leaders are realizing their new liquid workforce can become their new competitive advantage.
The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done.
New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
As business becomes more global and teams can often be dispersed across cities or continents, businesses have begun adapting telecommuting as an added corporate culture benefit and as a way to recruit and retain key talent. As a result, managers may find themselves forced to respond to an all-new set of needs and concerns from their staffs. How does the international team leader ensure that the necessary lines of communication stay up when there are thousands of miles and half a dozen time zones separating offices?
