  • CW Europe: December 2016 - February 2017

    First, we look at how law enforcement organisations in Europe are changing the way they fight cyber crime. This has been forced upon them as a result of a lack of resources. These organisations face an onslaught of cyber attacks. In the second quarter of 2016, cyber crime attacks continued to grow across all segments, up 50% compared with the same period last year, according to reports.

    In the face of this, law enforcement agencies in Europe are turning their attention to new and emerging technologies, working with technology companies to ensure new products and services are secure by design.

    Also read how German software company SAP has responded to concerns from businesses over the sovereignty of their data. Only technicians in Europe will have access to potentially sensitive data held in its cloud datacentres, if European companies request this. SAP has done this because it doesn’t think the fact that data is in a European datacentre guarantees it is safe from prying eyes, if technical support is done from outside Europe.

    This quarter we also describe some of the journeys to modern technologies being taken by organisations in Europe.

    Read how mobile computing, mobile sensor networks and deep learning are helping French rail operator SNCF become more efficient. The company is using the industrial internet powered by IBM Watson’s deep learning analytics platform and the SigFox IoT network.

    Also read how Swedish bank SEB is serving its customers by using a software robot. The bank is doing the first roll-out in the banking sector of IPSoft’s Amelia platform and hopes it will complement and probably gradually replace significant volumes of telephone banking services. SEB tried out the technology internally first by using it on its IT helpdesk. Following the success of this, one of its biggest challenges will be deciding where else Amelia can be used. Read about the lessons learned and the challenges that remain. Banks across Europe will be watching closely as artificial intelligence is increasingly seen as a way to cut costs and improve service levels.  

    Also read how the Dutch government is uses Microsoft Dynamics to improve the recruitment and career management of senior civil servants in the Netherlands.
