  • Some (re-)assembly required: How technology is changing the shape of business services
    We now have the computational power to crunch through data by the megabyte, to cross-reference, cross-tabulate and seek patterns across transactions, blog posts and geophysical locations. Companies have only to figure out what questions to ask; the analytic capabilities exist to spew game-changing insights and real-time, customer-specific strategies.
  • Realising the promise of new technologies
    While technology investments in the financial services sector continue to surge, many institutions are still dependent on legacy operating systems ill-equipped to support or even allow the types of new product, service and operating models banks need to compete. Banks and other firms hoping to compete should consider their core IT infrastructure in order to take advantage of tech-driven innovation.
  • Come together, right now - Corporate leaders can amplify the value of social to the business

  • Cyber resilience on the executive agenda – A global community acting locally
    With the meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos in January 2013, cyber security is officially no longer solely a technology or IT department concern. In this Financial Times article, Eric Openshaw and Jolyon Barker discuss ways to make headway against the growing cyber threat.
  • Striking a balance between extracting value and exposing your data to the bad guys
    Catastrophic security breaches are feared to be imminent. The looming impacts range from stolen intellectual property and the inability to conduct business, to significant brand erosion and lost competitive advantage. The message for executives trying to make sense of what it means to company IP, data and operations is that the game has changed and it’s time for leadership and attention from the top.

  • Trends that drive corporate IT spending
    With widespread uncertainty keeping expectations for a global recovery low in 2013, we might assume the sky is falling on enterprise IT spending. Yet Gartner predicts 4.2 per cent growth in global IT spending for 2013. Read this Financial Times article by Eric Openshaw and Paul Lee to find out why IT spending appears to be picking up despite the uneven economic outlook.
  • The leader advantage: Implications of the mobile communications national achievement
    For an increasing number of people, mobile is an integral part of their personal and professional lives. As wireless broadband coverage reaches more parts of the world, the number of innovative mobile-based products and services increases.
  • IT consumerisation - learning to let go
    New technologies and form factors are changing the way work gets done. Workers today expect more, not just from their devices, but from the applications and information they use—simplicity, usability, elegance—not always the hallmarks of enterprise IT.
  • Data visualisation is key to ‘big data’ opportunity
    Search “visualisation” on the Internet and you can fritter away hours on the latest mash-up-data as art, statement, experimentation. But for business, the power of visualisation is to make sense of the disparate often unstructured data - the “Big Data” you keep hearing about - to inform decisions, indicate actions and create shared understanding.
