IDG Contributor Network: The critical role of processes in your disaster recovery strategy

As CIOs work out their spending and strategies for the year, the annual review of the disaster recovery and business continuity plan will inevitably form part of a lengthy to-do list. 

Yet with the ever-increasing threats from both natural and man-made disasters – from the devastating fires and flooding in California last year through to the recent impact of Intel’s chip flaw that opened the door to potential hacking – is there anything more that IT departments can do to perfect how their organization both prevents and reacts to business disruptions?

Surprisingly, more than 1 in 3 businesses admit they don’t have a disaster recovery policy in place, a figure that is even higher amongst smaller businesses where an estimated 3 out of 4 are reported to have no contingency measures at all.

LG V30+ α with enhanced A.I features could be announced at MWC 2018

LG might be introducing upgraded V30 smartphone with enhanced artificial intelligence features at the Mobile World Congress which will kickstart on February 26th, according to a new report from Korea. The original LG V30 was announced back in August at IFA 2017 in Berlin.

The company instead of introducing G-series flagship like it usually does at the MWC event every year, it is said to unveil the same V30 with A.I features and functionalities.  According to the report, the new version could be named “V30+‘α’.” Considering LG’s close relationship with Google, the upcoming model might feature Google Assistant-based AI functions.

The new move might be a part of the company’s new strategy to retain existing premium models for a longer period. If rumors indeed turn out correct and LG does launch a new variant of V30, G7 might be launched after several months. It is heard that LG CEO Jo has ordered a revision of the G7 smartphone from scratch, though it is anticipated that the phone might make an appearance at the MWC event.

The company recently trademarked ‘Icon’ for smartphones and ‘Iconic’ for smartwatches. The company’s CEO, Cho Sung-jin in an interview during the CES 2018 said “We will unveil new smartphones when it is needed. But …

IDG Contributor Network: Robotic process automation brings a new approach to common M&A challenges

A number of digital and IT innovations are having a significant impact on a company’s ability to integrate a newly acquired company or to separate a divested entity to buyers. Cloud applications (e.g., email, enterprise resource planning), cloud infrastructure and next-generation networks have made IT M&A projects less complicated and less expensive, while providing value by accelerating this transition.

The most recent innovation is robotic process automation (RPA). Many companies have started to use RPA for their data migrations or have begun to pilot its use within their enterprise as part of their innovation initiatives. This application of RPA is just scratching the surface of the potential impact of this technology in M&A transactions.
