Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can
adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e

If you function like most IT organizations, you've spent the past few years relying on mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and client management tools to get the most out of your enterprise endpoints while limiting the onset of threats you may encounter.
In peeling back the onion, you'll find little difference between these conventional tools and strategies in comparison to those that Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have employed since the dawn of the modern computing era. Their use has simply become more:
Time consuming, with IT trudging through mountains of endpoint data;
Inefficient, with limited resources and limitless issues to sort through for opportunities and threats; and
Costly, with point solution investments required to address gaps in OS support across available tools.
Download this whitepaper to learn how to take advantage of the insights afforded by big data and analytics thereby usher i
Endpoints continue to advance…
Employees come and go...
And the security landscape is in constant flux.
IT leadership must rise to the challenge of managing a disparate and growing number of endpoints, operating systems, and platforms.
The only efficient method of managing and securing all endpoints, their users, apps, content, and data is to implement and deploy a unified endpoint management (UEM) solution that changes and adapts with new technology, more skilled users, and increasingly sophisticated attacks by hackers.
Read onward to learn why UEM is necessary, how it addresses complex problems encountered in the modern enterprise, and best practices for a successful deployment.
If you’re under increasing pressure to be as efficient as possible with your marketing spend, you need to avoid wasting resources on strategies and messages targeted at the wrong audience. This white paper is a step-by-step guide on creating buyer personas to help focus your marketing efforts.
Using templates, administrators can consolidate OS and application management so that only a single instance of a software package is required and managed on a physical machine regardless of the number of virtual environments that use the software.
Moving to C++ presents opportunities for higher programmer productivity. The requirements of embedded systems, however, demand that the adoption of C++ be carefully measured for the performance impact of run-time costs present in C++, but not in C. This talk suggests strategies for developers who are starting their acquaintance with C++.
If IT and Facilities could work collaboratively, organizations can operate more efficiently and effectively while still meeting their business objectives. That's why Eaton® is partnering with organizations that develop IT management systems to create an integrated approach to energy management. This white paper describes how a joint monitoring and management solution links IT assets, the data center infrastructure and Facilities assets into a holistic perspective aligned with business processes.
The native speakers of the islands of Hawaii probably had no notion of the inadequacy of the Word and Email duopoly to corporate communications when they coined the term Wiki - literally meaning fast. However, Wikis have grown into just that -- a fast and efficient way of fostering knowledge sharing across corporations worldwide; combining elements of Word, email, RSS, plugins and other relevant technologies.

Today’s employees are autonomous, connected, and efficient, so how can companies provide them with learning
initiatives that address their needs while also driving bottom line growth? Brett Wilson, Principal, Thought
Leadership and Advisory Services at Cornerstone OnDemand, led a recent webinar, “Four Ways to Make Learning
Work for the Modern Workforce,” and shared some tips on how L&D professionals can make their training
initiatives more engaging to workers and be a catalyst for growth.
If the go-go 1990s, with its fast money and flush credit seeking rapid and steep returns, created the demand for "renaissance" Chief Financial Officers ("CFO"), who could manage (and market) both the strategic and financial operations of the enterprise, the more sobering decade that followed led directly to the creation and subsequent rise of the Chief Procurement Officer ("CPO"), who could reduce costs, build internal relationships, and develop strategic suppliers efficiently and effectively.

Fraud is costing government programs more than ever. For example, Medicaid lost $36 billion in 2017 – 10 percent of its total expenditures – which represents a 27 percent increase over 2015. As explored in this paper, fraud numbers are on the rise because fraud rings are not only getting more effective at what they do, but because it’s easy for them to find soft targets across multiple government programs simultaneously. Learn about how next-generation analytic tools from SAS cut across data and program silos and empower investigators to go on the offensive with fraud operators – without disrupting the efficient and timely delivery of benefits, services or tax refunds.
