Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery
techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security
of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital
transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues
to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models,
processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and
reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with
slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An
Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed
to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to
competitors that do put the customer first.1
For this study, we assessed
the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration
and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business
faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.

The digital revolution is transforming every industry. Yet it also brings new challenges: threats to the security and Availability of mission-critical data and services.
Approximately 80% of IT decision-makers say their organization has an Availability gap, that is, a failure to meet recovery requirements—a common issue across all industries. 75% say they also have a data protection gap, meaning they are unable to protect their data frequently enough to ensure that business units’ expectations against data loss are being met.
In a business environment where being able to build and maintain a solid brand reputation and lasting relationships with your customers is essential for ongoing success, effective compliance training for team members is critical. Assembling quality course content, either through purchasing off-the-shelf compliance courseware or developing training material in-house or in partnership with an external developer, and delivering that material in a consistent manner, can help protect your organization and minimize the damage from compliance transgressions.

Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.
The rise of the application programming interface (API) represents a business opportunity and a technical challenge. For business leaders, APIs present the opportunity to open new revenue streams and maximize customer value. But enterprise architects are the ones charged with creating the APIs that make backend systems available for reuse in new Web and mobile apps.
It is vital that all stakeholders understand that the business goals and technical challenges of an API program are intimately related. Program managers must take responsibility for clearly communicating the key business goals of a proposed API to the architects who will actually build the interface.
This eBook outlines best practices for designing results-focused APIs that will form the cornerstone of your API program’s success.

However, a successful Mobile Workforce Management transformation is dependent upon many factors beyond simply deploying new technology. It requires a full understanding of the overall business objectives, a keen understanding of historical processes, a standard system of key performance metrics along with the organization’s current performance in those metrics, and effective communication to ensure organizational readiness and project execution.
Today's IT executives are not only expected to create and maintain high-availability IT environments, but they are also expected to implement green initiatives to satisfy customers, analysts, and government agencies that are worried about the impact of modern, energy-thirsty data centers on the environment. Is such a dual mandate reasonable? Can companies be expected to maintain service levels and reduce their carbon footprints at the same time? The White Paper offers a description of the different types of services available to improved energy efficiency data center design and a prescription for successful implementation.

In the past decade, banks have applied a vast array of strategies to attract new customers—free checking, high interest savings, low interest mortgage, cash deposits, and product give-a-ways. Many offers were bundles with credit, either in the form of a new credit line or in the form of low interest on transferred credit balances.
The purpose is to attract new customers who bring new account balances. Although successful in attracting new customers, those customers usually brought small balances. It didn’t matter if each account’s balance was small. The sum of these small account balances would be a very large amount. This new amount could be leveraged into loans and hence profits. – Download our whitepaper today!

Find out how to make a major shift in your sales approach for the better in order to both increase individual sales rep effectiveness and improve collaborative team selling.
This paper conveys how the pressure to increase customer satisfaction metrics with less funding will increase as companies look for new ways to differentiate their services and reduce customer churn. To get ahead, customer support organizations must maintain a focus on using the right measures of success. They need to empower agents to support more customers better, providing them with multiple, integrated communications channels, and they need to be dedicated to delivering the best customer experience regardless of the support request.
To drive loyalty and revenue, brands need to deliver personalized, meaningful digital experiences. Many marketers are looking for an end-to-solution that delivers multi-channel experiences on any device and helps create personalized content for every customer. The ability to deliver digital experiences that differentiate your brand and deepen customer relationships is more crucial than ever to driving business success.

These days it takes more than a great idea, some capital, and a ping-pong table to get a new business off the ground. Awesome customer service needs to be a part of your company DNA from day one. Although companies sometimes overlook it in the rush to get a product out the door, customer service can be the difference between a hot IPO and just keeping the lights on.
