Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.

There are so many opportunities for businesses to collect data that getting a clear picture of all of it can be an uphill battle—and leveraging it for insight can be nearly impossible. But whether you are a start-up or a multinational conglomerate, not taking advantage of the available data is a mistake you cannot risk making. According to a 2016 McKinsey & Company study, over the past three years, digital leaders have achieved revenue growth five times greater, an operating margin profit eight times greater, and a return to shareholder value two times higher than laggards. Companies today need a closed loop system that combines data, insight, and action. Download this paper to learn about the goals of a system of insight (SOI), the common set of technologies that all systems of insight need, and how an SOI can make a difference in your business.

The digital economy is dramatically changing how consumers shop and interact with businesses. They expect a fast, convenient and highly secure digital experience. With the average company lifespan decreasing rapidly, merchants have to operate as a true digital enterprise to stay competitive and to stay in business. Payment and fraud management is no longer a back-office utility. It is a prime differentiator, critical to achieving competitive advantage, improving customer experience and reducing risk. Digital transformation is not simply a market buzz word. It is real. And those who don’t embrace it are in a position to lose. By 2020, eCommerce sales as a percentage of retail sales are forecast to be 12.4% compared to 8.0% in 2016, according to eMarketer. And engaging customers digitally across channels remains a top digital initiative. While there are several drivers of growth in the digital economy, none are more significant than the force of mobile and cloud technologies. Innovation

Digital technology is creating change at a pace never seen before. Customers now expect speed, ease, choice and a personalised service. It makes customer experience key to success. And it sets merchants a challenge. To survive, and thrive, businesses need to stay agile in everything they do –including how they manage fraud. As the people who set the strategy that determines if an order is accepted or not, fraud teams have a pivotal role to play in improving customer experience and reducing risk. This makes fraud management more than a back-office utility. It’s a way to differentiate your business and achieve a competitive advantage. This is the question we put to three specialists from CyberSource – as well as Chris Monk from digital literacy agency Decoded. This report reflects their expert opinion, and explores: • The changing landscape for businesses. • The key challenges for fraud teams. • How to develop an agile fraud solution

A general understanding of risk management is essential when looking at cyber risk specifically. Ultimately, an enterprise should consider adding cybersecurity expertise to its board membership, but all members can benefit from increasing their understanding about how cyber risk affects corporate strategy and the overall enterprise risk profile. To provide effective strategic advice to company leadership on cyber risk, you must ask the right questions, including whether a company does ongoing cyber risk assessment and management, and how.

Digital transformation is reshaping the business landscape faster than at any time in history. It used to take decades to disrupt a market, but natively digital companies such as Uber and Airbnb have disrupted their industries in just half a decade. Digitization is creating new winners and losers at an unprecedented rate. Organizations that adopt a digital strategy will leapfrog the competition, while those that do not will risk becoming irrelevant within five years. One important step in becoming a digital enterprise is becoming an agile organization—that is, having the ability to take advantage of market opportunities faster than the competition. This shift to being an agile business has now become a top initiative for IT and business leaders. However, business agility cannot be achieved without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology to make IT more agile in 2014, according to ZK Research.

It is important to understand the different business situations where traditional predictive analytics can be best applied and where anticipatory analytics may be a more appropriate approach to solve the business problem. One is not necessarily superior to the other – it’s about which methodology is best utilized in solving the specific business problem. Conventional response modeling, revenue potential modeling, wallet share analysis, traditional risk scoring and other analytic practices will always be important tools for businesses far-and-wide, but as more companies focus on analytics to inform growth, they’ll have employ the right team and identify the right partners to work with in order to successfully leverage anticipatory analytics to gain a competitive advantage. Looking forward, we anticipate anticipatory analytics playing an important role in your future. Download this white paper to learn more.

Several economic factors are significantly impacting the hiring and retention practices for key finance and accounting personnel in every industry. However, many successful middle market companies are counteracting these challenges by leveraging outsourcing strategies to gain efficiency, overcome staffing difficulties and better manage costs. A significant shift is currently occurring with some economic indicators, as demonstrated in the recent RSM US Middle Market Business Index. Salaries are expected to rise in the next year, with hiring increasing and unemployment subsequently falling. With these challenges in mind, competition for talent is rising, and middle market organizations will face numerous risks when looking to attract and retain skilled finance and accounting personnel.

The cloud — at one point it was a revolution in the workplace. Now it is simply accepted as an efficient way to get business done. Most of today’s IT security was built to protect a well-defined network infrastructure, but that is yesterday’s architecture. When users and assets move outside the network perimeter where the traditional security stack can no longer protect them, your enterprise is exposed to an entirely new set of risks. And with more apps and sensitive data living in the cloud or on mobile devices, gaps emerge that leave organizations susceptible to attacks. Read this flipbook to see how you can take your security to new heights. We'll explain the challenges driving the shift in the market and how you can take advantage of these changes and improve security for your organization.

With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics to create competitive advantage within their markets, often focusing on building a thorough understanding of their customer base. High-priority big data and analytics projects often target customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data and analytics can also help companies understand how changes to products or services will impact customers, as well as address aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management, and operational optimization.

VAT rules can be complex, HMRC – a gauntlet. In this eBook, we demystify some of the facts around compliance, tax and expense management. The British economy has gone from boom to bust. The recession followed by a long period of austerity and caution has altered spending behaviours while the government has increasingly cracked down on tax evasion and fraud. HMRC has become more focused on assisting businesses of all sizes to comply with their policies and implement good governance when it comes to finances. Nevertheless, the reality can sometimes be confusing and the penalties for getting it wrong – severe. Many businesses outsource their tax management to experts or muddle through, running the risk of non-compliance. There’s a real need for unambiguous, helpful advice about expenses, VAT and HMRC compliance. We’ve created this guide to help shine some light on the processes, practices and behaviours around tax and expenses based on some of the frequently asked questions we receive. Wh

There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption. This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
