GROW with SAP: Answering Questions about Public Cloud Earlier this year, SAP launched GROW with SAP, an offering that gives midmarket organizations a suite of tools tailored to their unique needs and growth opportunities. With its comprehensive range of features across all facets of business, the solution is changing the way midmarket organizations operate, making it simpler for them to use technology to create sustainable growth and enhanced competitiveness. I was recently given the opportunity to answer some challenging questions about the public cloud from a child, a customer, and an analyst expert in the space. Thankfully, because GROW with SAP is both simple and robust, it’s possible to explain it both in terms that a seven-year-old can understand and that will excite even the most demanding customer or analyst.

Unlock the power of digital ethics to build and maintain trust in digital identity adoption In today’s digital era, establishing trust online is of utmost importance as individuals increasingly interact with organisations through digital channels. When considering identity, we often think of the usernames and passwords which characterise our interactions today. We create unique representations of ourselves to access services or purchase products, and the process is often repeated for each unique interaction to prove who we are. We’re heading towards a future where we can verify ourselves, and manage our own single, trusted digital identity. This has the potential to establish trust between citizens and organisations in real time with ease. This is why identity is referred to as the missing layer of the internet, and the potential to deliver this missing layer is an exciting prospect. In a recent survey we conducted of 100 technology decision makers, 85% of respondents agreed with this feeling and said that user-centric ecosystems that enable a user to create, manage and share their own identity is part of the evolution of trusted digital services.
