Digital Transformation

Some technology trends will dominate in the year 2019. Millennials and Generation Z-ers want specific self- service offering from their brands. Thus, round the clock will now be available thanks to the presence of conversational bots. These newer bots will be able to connect emotionally with the customer, and not merely reply using linear specified answers. Extremely authentic business intelligence will now be captured thanks to the use of the Internet of Things (IoT), as it will only lead to an expansion of the digitization. Instead of the desires and expectations to be understood, hard data will bring the exact inputs. Machine learning can now process business analytics.

A recent study has confirmed rather alarmingly that about half the issues reported for cyber security breaches, have occurred due to the unknowing effects of insiders. These insiders may be company employees, vendors or contractors. As this problem is not well- known, not many rectification schemes are around. For this, companies need to proactively, get down first to understanding this threat. According to figures supplied by management consulting giant McKinsey, about 38% of these threats may have been malicious, but 44% of them were merely as a result of negligence. Financial stress has also been caused by these mishaps. To solve this in a better way, companies need to go for micro- segmentation. This will enable the company to identify the risk hotspots. A culture change is also needed on a war- footing. The use of insider- personal business analytics, can help massively to predicting such occurrences. Of course, while doing all this, companies still need to be mindful of not crossing the boundaries of privacy.

This has made use of huge treasure troves of data warehousing conducted on employee usage. Even anonymous posts on Glassdoor may be tracked to provide authentic business intelligence on company culture. The New Yorker has even labelled Glassdoor as the “Yelp for workplaces”, due to its usefulness in gauging this aspect. One can even analyze the track changes on company culture, as the reviews span several years in time.
