Finance, Reporting, Planning, Supply Chain

Gone are the days when the role of the back office was just to contain costs and maintain the business. Forward-thinking organisations are adapting and creating data-driven financial, planning and supply chain organisation at the core of the business to identify new growth opportunities and create value.

Empower a modern, agile organization:

  • Take advantage of cloud and emerging technologies to enhance productivity, reduce costs, and improve controls.

Service, Marketing, Sales, Commerce

The Experience Economy is here. We are surrounded by unprecedented choice and convenience, from online orders arriving in hours to rides arriving in minutes and answers arriving in seconds. As a result, your customers expect things to happen seamlessly on their own terms, whenever and however they want, and often demand instant gratification in both their personal and professional lives.

Leadership, Innovation, Growth, Diversity, Culture

The opportunities that cloud and emerging technologies unlock are real and present today, providing the building blocks for companies to pioneer groundbreaking innovations and disrupt entire industries. But seizing these opportunities is easier said than done—it requires aligning strategy, process, policy, organisational structure, and technology to exceed and anticipate customer needs.

Learn from leaders from global enterprises and local start-ups:

  • Embrace an accelerated pace of continual transformation to stay ahead of the competition.
  • Align people, processes, and technology to support new business strategies, innovation, productivity, and growth.
  • Solve challenges and drive strategies that cut through the noise and provide a roadmap you can fearlessly follow.

Digital Transformation, Constituent Engagement, Modernising Service

We live in an increasing urban world. Since the turn of this century, mega-cities in the developing world have seen a full doubling of their populations and by 2050; over two-thirds of us will be urban dwellers. Cities are ground-zero for an increasingly strained social-safety net but also act as the economic engines for new-world economies. Aging populations are putting increasing the demand for health and social services; educational systems need to prepare today’s youth for a technology-driven world, and the growth and changing shape of cities is creating new demands on infrastructure.

Be inspired by technology-enabled change initiatives in the advanced public- and private-sector organisations:

  • Deliver services that are more widely available, cost less, and are easier to deliver, monitor, and track.
  • Establish workforces for the future.
  • Reinforce public safety and resilience, and catalyse constituent engagement.
  • Create outcomes that truly respond to the priorities of citizens.

Database, Data Management, Analytics, Business Intelligence

A new age of cloud innovation is happening amid a backdrop of converging technology and market forces. Underpinning these forces is a veritable explosion in data, largely bolstered by Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and fuelled by increases in computational capacity and machine learning that make it possible to distil, interpret and use that data in completely new ways.

Unleash the possibilities of your data:

  • Gain insight and better understanding of your operations, employees, markets, and customers.
  • Leverage the power of Autonomous technologies to automate insights and automate manual tasks, while reducing costs and reducing risk.
  • Automate the collection of data across multiple applications and visualize millions of points of data.
  • Automatically make recommendations and deliver actionable intelligence to the business.

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Autonomous Technologies

The Automation Age will be one of the greatest technology shifts that we’ve ever seen in our lifetime. With Autonomous technologies, you now have the means to automate both manual tasks and insights, while reducing costs and reducing risk. It will completely reshape the approach to IT - freeing resources and imaginations to focus on business growth and innovation.

AI and machine learning that's ready to go:

  • Leverage cloud applications with intelligent features to discover hidden patterns and drive better business outcomes.
  • Anticipate customer satisfaction, deliver next-best-service actions, automate answers, and provide more personalized services.
  • Predict possible security breaches, automate security-patching, backups, and optimize performance.
  • Eliminate human error and repetitive manual tasks so your organization can focus on higher-value activities.

Blockchain, IoT, Chatbots, Virtual and Augmented Realities

Emerging technologies—including artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, blockchain, and human interfaces—have become one of the greatest areas of change for businesses and people. From self-driving cars to personalized medicine, from smart manufacturing to smart cities, these technologies are permeating virtually every aspect of work and life, changing the way we experience our world.

Create new business value:

  • IoT—extend your supply chain and automate business processes by converting a world of things into a world of data.
  • Blockchain—establish unalterable transaction logs to exchange information and share results between business and trading partners.
  • Chatbots and Digital Assistants—deploy sophisticated conversational assistants that learn and evolve to deliver increasing levels of personalization and confidence.
  • Virtual and Augmented Realities—improve customer engagement, patient outcomes, employee training, product development, risk management, and more.

Cloud, Infrastructure, Network, Systems, Security

The cloud is changing every aspect of IT. Businesses that don’t transform their IT infrastructure to meet the demands of the evolving business environment risk being left behind. But the scope of modern IT operations goes beyond performance and optimisation. To evolve the business, IT must expose actionable insights throughout the organisation, leverage machine learning and automation to drive system autonomy, and improve decision-making to reduce the time from idea to value.

Optimise IT:

  • Leverage the cloud to continually improve IT services and set the stage for faster, more responsive and cost-effective IT capabilities.
  • Reduce or eliminate the human effort required for monitoring, managing, and securing applications and infrastructure.
  • Gain the advantages of cloud computing services while still realizing the benefits of your data centers.
  • Protect and secure your environment with latest security tools and techniques, from database controls to intrusion detection to security perimeters.
