The fourth industrial revolution is rapidly outgrowing its adolescence. Technology is advancing at an exponential rate that is simply unprecedented in human history. And consumers are reaping the benefits, with new competitors arising on the back of consequential technologies to cater to hyper-personal requests.
Established enterprises are reflecting earnestly to identify their own vulnerabilities and build resilience moving forward.
Improving working capital efficiencies is a crucial yet often overlooked dilemma within this wider recalibration. Consumer driven change is so entirely pervasive that the most fundamental structures underpinning business operations are feeling an impact.
Pressures and expectations are steadily growing on financial executives to absorb this consumer-driven change. In response, AMEX united CFOs from a wealth of industries to give this dialogue the volume it deserves. This conversation unearthed a number of shared frustrations, as well as shared opportunities – this is their story.
Customers, the protagonist of our retail narrative, are fundamentally changing. They are shopping in the moment, and that moment has become ubiquitous. Brands are challenging held business assumptions to remain part of the story.
CRITEO along with CONNECT MEDIA gathered a diverse group of leading retail executives to write the next chapter of this narrative. From conversion and attribution to segmentation and dissemination, there is no doubt the data-infused web that is retail can entangle brands. But for every shared struggle there is shared opportunity. Here is what they had to say.
AKAMAI and CONNECT MEDIA recently hosted 10 of Australia’s premier hi-tech leaders for an executive conversation on mitigating the latest cyber-attack threats.
With new attack vendors being discovered almost daily, AKAMAI’sEnterprise Security Architect provided a first-hand account of the emergence of a new security paradigm. Next followed a robust discussion on how to effectively militate against dynamic and mutating attack patterns.
As one of the world’s largest procurers of bandwidth, AKAMAI delivers a formidable portion of the internet. With a hundred and twenty terabytes per second of traffic – and visibility over 15 to 30 percent of global web traffic – AKAMAI absorbs billions of attacks a day.
This data is manipulated by a team of data scientists to create actionable threat intelligence that is then embedded in their security portfolio. Conversation around the table was anchored in this veritable intelligence.
