Customer service is at an inflection point, in both the business-to-consumer and business-to-business sectors. Costs continue to skyrocket as the volume of inquiries increases, even as customer service budgets remain flat. Customer expectations seem to increase by the hour. Make a mistake or fail to resolve an issue quickly, and businesses may quickly see a decline in customer satisfaction and revenue.

The core technology behind Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has evolved for decades. More
recently, DRaaS has linked to the cloud, and finally hit its stride. Today it can provide unprecedented
availability options to companies who don’t have secondary data centers dedicated to business
continuity. Before now, only IT teams with additional IT budget, staff and geographic locations could
effectively hedge against downtime, and disasters.
But today’s DRaaS means that businesses of all sizes have the peace of mind that comes with knowing a
replica of their data and systems is hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to—without bearing
any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is
the responsibility of the DRaaS provider. And the technology ensures that a replica is not only available,
but always current and immediately available. This attractive value proposition led Gartner to predict
that global DRaaS revenue will rea

With such proven and widely recognized benefits, how many companies are
using rolling forecasts today? The short answer is, it depends on whom you
ask. On the whole, adoption rates range from less than 5% to over 75%,
depending on how you define a true rolling forecast.
As digitization drives business at ever-faster speeds, CFOs recognize the need to keep pace. They understand the importance of financial planning and analysis (FP&A) solutions that allow their finance teams to develop budgets and forecasts quickly and accurately. They need confidence in their numbers and the decisions they drive. But selecting the right FP&A software is only half the battle.
Information is the engine of business growth in the digital age. Market intelligence, customer information, intellectual property and other data can be harnessed to create a quantifiable competitive advantage for a company and lay the path for future expansion. Yet as critical as data can be, the sweeping year-over-year proliferation in data volumes can quickly overwhelm an IT organization. This is much more than a budget problem: Without an effective data storage strategy, an organization is putting a critical resource at risk.
The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.

In recent years, business forecasts have had to become faster and more flexible—ready to be adjusted at a moment’s notice. As earnings and product cycles accelerate, it has become clear that the business world is decisively moving towards treating rolling forecasts as standard. A slow process of budgeting and forecasting is no longer enough.

Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
