By utilizing an ERP solution that is available as on-premise or cloud-based, your organization can leverage choice for agile response in today’s rapidly changing business environment. What this means for today’s businesses:
• The ability to deploy ERP on-premise, in the cloud, or in any combination
• Greater adaptability in fluid, dynamic, and always evolving value networks
• Faster deployment of solutions, faster upgrades of implemented solutions, staying current with technological advances
• Enhanced support of business growth; improved ability to scale up or out to meet emerging opportunities and minimize risk
• Powerful yet intuitive tools for easy configuration to specific business needs
Flexible deployment, much of it cloud-based, will be the hallmark of ERP systems in the immediate and near future.
Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before, routinely working whenever and wherever necessary, using a variety of mobile devices and productivity apps. They expect their tools to deliver the capabilities they need to stay productive and efficient.
But what if they don’t? When a business doesn’t support its workforce with suitable, properly vetted apps, employees will often download and install the tools they like. This trend, called “Shadow IT,” is almost always a recipe for trouble. One-off, standalone apps don’t conform to business strategy and growth plans, but instead create difficulties — security, compatibility, compliance and technical support — that draw resources away from strategic work.
Today’s growing businesses face a tough challenge. They need to provide the same affordable, always-on mobile services that more established businesses offer, but without the economic support enterprises can fall back on. That means IT professionals are onstantly looking for creative ways to do more with less: managing teams, stretching budgets, and making the most of infrastructure and applications. To meet the needs of their organisations within those constraints, they’re turning to the cloud.
Filled with exotic terms like “Hadoop” and “Data Scientist”, Big Data, business intelligence and analytics have always been the domain of the biggest enterprises with huge teams to devote to analyzing data. But thanks to the latest technology advances businesses of almost any size can utilize tools to help inform every part of business decision-making. This SlashGuide looks at a recent Slashdot Pulse research study on BI/BA and discusses what’s really important when it comes to Big Data – and what businesses can do now to capitalize on the trend.

Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later. Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.

These days we’re always hearing about the "information age," "information technology," and how "information rules the world." We have come to feel that information is everything. But what does that mean, and is information in itself so important? Not completely. We need information to make decisions – that's what is truly important.

Within any organization, the most dangerous users are those with privileged access to the company’s
most valuable and sensitive data assets. This includes systems administrators, business managers,
partners, suppliers, and service providers, and also takes into account the automated interactions
between business machines, systems, and applications. Privileged access has always been a
high-risk issue, but for too long, organizations have not understood or have chosen to ignore the risks,
preferring instead to rely on the integrity of the individuals and systems involved.
A number of high-profile security breaches over the last two years have highlighted the damage that a
rogue systems administrator or stolen privileged credentials can cause. Today, fewer than half of all
business organizations have deployed the type of privileged identity management (PIM) solution that
could help improve the situation. This Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides an in-depth view of the
leading PIM solution
