The economic face of the APAC region is changing. While the East has long been considered a source of competitively priced raw materials and manufacturing services, the spending power of its inhabitants - and their increased fondness for international travel - has transformed it into a force to be reckoned with. It’s estimated that, over the next five years, 88% of the growth in the global middle class will be in the Asia Pacific region.1 If multinational companies hope to take advantage of this vast new target market, they will need to adapt their expansion strategies and offer APAC customers a tailored retail experience.

After buzzing Industry 4.0 all over the media by all OT and IT experts, today, a few key concepts seem to unveil the potential that the industry believes is behind Industry 4.0.

Clearly, they are the innovation drivers and must-haves for every vendor of automation products that want to be recognized as leaders or challengers.

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness.

Today’s CIOs no longer just oversee technology. They are now key strategists who guide their organizations and give them the tools they need to stay competitive. A study by Forbes Research stated that five years ago, a CIO’s most critical skill was deploying technology. Now, the #1 way that CIOs provide value is by contributing to the corporate strategy, so they can advance business objectives and drive revenue.1 In particular, CEOs rely on the CIO for guidance around digital transformation. Organizations must transform how they operate and take advantage of new technologies to better engage customers and employees. Digital transformation falls squarely on the shoulders of IT leaders.
