Many businesses invest in analytics
technology thinking it’s a silver bullet. But
data doesn’t always tell the whole story. You
get percentages but not insights. Trends but
not necessarily relationships or patterns.
Truly impactful workforce analytics has to
do more. You have to turn data into
insight, and then put it into action.
This workbook is designed to help you
progress through the workforce analytics
maturity model. The first step in the process
is to identify where you stand today.

The role of IT is fundamentally changing from a cost-efficient enablement technology to a more strategic element of the enterprise. For companies born before the digital era, IT is a key player on their path to digital transformation; for more recent businesses designed with technology at their core, IT represents a foundational pillar on top of which everything else is built.
With this shifting role, IT’s decades-long emphasis on TCO is being eclipsed by a new-found focus on security and automation. Whether it’s the continuous risks posed by a dynamic threat landscape, the threat of digital disruption, or an inability to keep pace with the latest trends, virtually every enterprise needs to be more agile. And, with the continued evolution of compute, storage, and applications, networks have been exposed as a bottleneck to change.

At the Sprinklr Digital Transformation Summit in Nashville, Cisco Chairman John Chambers issued a stark warning during his keynote address: “75 percent of the companies in this room will be digital in just four years, that’s the good news,” Chambers said to the audience. “The bad news? It’s only going to work for a third of you, because you won’t reinvent yourself.”
Consumers equipped with smartphones expect fast, convenient and uniquely relevant shopping experiences in store and online. As a result, one-third of shoppers are not satisfied with the in-store experience, turned off by everything from chronic out-of-stocks to cookie-cutter products and marketing messages that speak to the masses, as opposed to them as individuals.
In turn, retailers are empowering front-line associates with tools designed to add newfound conveniences, such as locating inventory without having to leave a shopper’s side, to texting them curated product offers based on in-store and online buying patterns and preferences
These are just a few of the insights found in Zebra’s 10th annual shopper study, which surveyed nearly 7,500 consumers from North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East to gain a deeper understanding of shopper satisfaction and retail technology trends that are reshaping brick-and-mortar and online stores.
This is the second in a series of three white papers that discuss proven strategies and best practices for optimizing three key elements of success — People, Process, and Technology — to address critical challenges and drive competitive advantage in today’s logistics industry. Keep reading to gain valuable insights into the “Process” trends and issues that are top of mind for managers across the logistics sector.

With the digitization of modern life, consumers have come to expect the same kind of real-time response and control from mortgage companies as they have experienced in other aspects of their lives.

In response, traditional mortgage originators are transitioning legacy processes to compete with the game-changing speed of born digital disruptors like Rocket Mortgage and Better.com. This infographic outlines the eight technology trends that are top-of-mind for leading lenders.

Adobe automates the process of turning insights into action by connecting Adobe Analytics to other solutions in Adobe Experience Cloud, including Adobe Target and Adobe Audience Manager. Four features make this possible:
• Anomaly detection. The technology automatically analyzes trends and determines if they are statistically significant — in milliseconds.
• Analyze play button. With analytics, you can take insights and connect them to your email, DMP, and personalization platform in seconds.
• Intelligent alert. A built-in alerting system sends an SMS text or email when it detects an anomaly. There are also predictive algorithms that help you forecast how often the alert is likely to trigger. You can set these to only notify you of the most important changes.
• Intelligent recommendations. It’s simply impossible to manually create every alert you might need, so Adobe is building machine learning directly into analytics to analyze users’ behaviors. Like a virtual data assistant, it co
