Bon nombre de propriétaires de PME pensent que cela n’arrive qu’aux autres et que leur entreprise est trop petite pour être la cible de piratages, d’attaques par rançongiciel et d’autres types de cybercriminalité. D’autres sont conscients de l’importance de la cybersécurité, mais estiment qu’ils n’ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour en faire une priorité. Ce sont là quelques-unes des raisons pour lesquelles pas moins de 90 % des PME n’ont pas établi de système de protection pour leurs données ou celles de leurs clients.
Payments are essential to the success of marketplaces and platforms that connect buyers to sellers, where transactions are a critical component of customers’ satisfaction. Sellers seek fast and flexible payouts, while both sellers and buyers look for an integrated and seamless experience. With the increasing complexity of multi-party transactions on platforms, these expectations are difficult to meet.
Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Stripe Connect, an offering that allows marketplaces and platforms to accept payments from and send payouts to third parties.
Forrester’s interviews with four existing Stripe clients and subsequent financial analysis found that an organization based on these interviewed organizations experienced benefits of $6.1 million over three years versus costs of $1.3 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $4.
Operational resilience is high on the regulatory agenda in the UK. A joint discussion paper in 2018 took a broader view of operational resilience to cover all risks to the provision of critical business services with a greater emphasis on recovery and response when incidents occur. Regulators now place the same importance on operational resilience as on financial resilience. This represents a fundamental shift that companies are at different stages of addressing. Based on discussions with clients and regulators here are ten conversations to help guide you through this new landscape.
Banking is rapidly being transformed by one, distinct theme: digital technology.
For those leading the charge, there is no longer a distinction between a business strategy and a technology strategy. There is just strategy driven by technology and the client needs it will evolve to continually meet. In this new world, upgrading existing operations and making legacy systems fit new challenges is not going to be enough. To succeed, banks need to become future-ready, connected enterprises, backed by a new type of technology and operating model that is nimble enough to adapt to new challenges and growth opportunities.
IBM rarely, if ever publicly, talks about the future of IBM Z. When IBM's sales managers have a oneon-one client conversation (under NDA), they might inform the customer about the next processor, but the company rarely talks about the mid- to long-term future publicly. An obvious reason for this is not to disrupt sales, but at the same time, IBM believes that it is sometimes working on problems that the market might not know it has yet. IBM felt that it was doing a disservice to its current and future customers by not being more open, which is why Tarun Chopra, director, Product Management for IBM Systems, and Ross Mauri, general manager, IBM Z, agreed to talk to IDC about the future of IBM Z. In these conversations, IBM was not putting a date on any of the topics it was willing to discuss. But the company was willing to talk about where it is investing R&D dollars and skills.

Switching to a managed services model where clients pay you a fixed monthly rate to manage their entire IT infrastructure. If done correctly, this transition can be a lifeline to reliable revenue in a shifting market.

Patches correct bugs, flaws and provide enhancements, which can prevent potential user impact, improve user experience and potentially save your technicians time researching and repairing issues that could have already been resolved or prevented with an existing update. Clients generally understand that their systems need to be patched, but they likely do not have the expertise to comfortably approve and install patches without help. When operating within the IT services industry, patching is one of the first areas that competitors auditing your clients will assess. Developing best practices to manage the risks associated with the approval and deployment of patches is critical to your IT department's service offering.

"Companies need to provide a seamless experience for their road warriors who are traversing the globe in search of new clients, attending conferences, exploring new business opportunities and checking on projects.
The goal of automating the T&E function isn’t just to save the company time and money, although that is a significant consideration. With policies in place, companies can ensure that business travelers are adhering to allowances for meals, hotels and other travel-related expenses. Companies that establish clear policies for how employees can book and pay for travel — and which vendors to use — can negotiate discounts and rewards with hotels, rental car agencies and airlines.
In addition to the financial benefits of an expense management policy, employee satisfaction is also at stake. Creating a realistic travel policy that is clear, simple and easily accessible makes employees happy. A quick and hassle-free travel expense management process reduces traveler stress, enabling
