As digital workplace initiatives grow, it is vital to examine their impact through a financial business case to obtain funding, structure stakeholder dialogue and secure commitment. Here, we describe how IT leaders can create a convincing business case with a strong link to business benefits. Key Challenges: ¦ It is difficult for IT leaders to quantify the financial returns associated with digital workplace initiatives, as they often fail to recognize the broad and indirect benefits. ¦ Treating digital workplace initiatives as infrastructure rollouts obscures their business relevance and distances business stakeholders, whose commitment is vital for success. ¦ Business and finance executives are more likely to take seriously a digital workplace initiative with a credible financial impact assessment.

Digitization is reshaping the business landscape at an unprecedented rate. The disruption of established businesses used to take decades, but natively digital organizations such as Uber, Google and Amazon have disrupted their respective markets in fewer than 10 years. Digital transformation is creating new winners and losers faster than ever before. Exhibit 1 shows that in 1960, on average, businesses remained on the S&P 500 Index for 50 to 60 years; by 1980, the rate of change was cut in half. Based on these trends, by 2025, businesses are forecast to stay on the index for an average of only 12 years. Leveraging this economic data, ZK Research predicts that 75% of the index will turn over in the next 10 years. New market leaders will emerge, and established organizations will struggle to survive.

Digital transformation has become a top mandate for almost every IT and business leader. The ZK Research 2015 IT Priorities Survey found that 79% of businesses currently have a digital transformation initiative in progress (Exhibit 1). In the digital era, competitive advantage is no longer determined by which company has the best products or even the best people. Market leadership is based on an organization’s ability to analyze information, gain insights and make fast decisions to capitalize on market transitions. One important step in the journey to becoming a digital organization is to transform into an agile business—and it is impossible to do so without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology in 2015 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.

"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components. In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."

Machine learning systems don’t just extract insights from the data they are fed, as traditional analytics do. They actually change the underlying algorithm based on what they learn from the data. So the “garbage in, garbage out” truism that applies to all analytic pursuits is truer than ever. Few companies are already using AI, but 72 percent of business leaders responding to a PWC survey say it will be fundamental in the future. Now is the time for executives, particularly the chief data officer, to decide on data management strategy, technology and best practices that will be essential for continued success.

In today’s highly competitive business environment, many organizations are expanding through mergers and acquisitions (M&As). Unfortunately, success comes at a cost.

Businesses with a complex ERP environment have several choices when it comes to AP automation solutions.

Today’s economy is widely characterized by skittishness and uncertainty about the future.

The same study also found that the companies who invested in their business insight capabilities were better able to anticipate and react to external economic forces. IBM Cognos software can provide businesses with the business insight they need to be prepared, not scared. Cognos software allows businesses to analyze performance, model business strategies and processes, and contribute to a common set of business objectives.
