IT modernization is essential for enterprises that want to successfully compete in the digital economy.

HR transformation

Automating HR processes to make them repeatable, easier to execute and faster makes sense, but the value that adds can be undercut if the processes being automated are outdated, fragmented and disconnected.

Self-driving cars, the sharing economy and smart factories are just a few examples of the massive change and extraordinary opportunities that digital technologies can help us create.

Developing high-performing teams will be the focus of many enterprises in 2020. Companies will confront the fallacy that pace is what unlocks the company’s full potential and recognize that how the company organizes its people and information flow is what determines performance.

Digital transformation is impossible if enterprises lack the right techologies. But just as critical to digital transformation efforts is having the in-house skills to fully leverage artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, augmented reality, virtual reality, the cloud, edge computing, and other emerging technologies, not to mention the more traditional tech skills necessary to maintain and […]

As organizations focus on data-driven business models to remain competitive, they will increasingly seek to collaborate with partners and exchange data. Data shared in an ecosystem is more valuable than data locked in a silo because it leads to new innovations and customer experiences. This trend is playing out in many industries including transportation, logistics, […]
