Data centers have become the epicenters of the digital world, and thus continue to grow in
speed, complexity, and importance. Whether an efficiently-run data center is a means to deliver
a service, e.g an Internet Content Provider (ICP), or if the data center is the primary business, e.g.
a multi-tenant data center (MTDC) - testing is a critical element in meeting customer SLAs and/
or internal performance objectives.
AI, machine learning and predictive analytics are already driving big performance gains for CFOs and their teams. The ability for cognitive tools to learn at speed helps Finance progressively improve company intelligence and efficiency, including proactive identification of late- and non-paying customers. Get up to speed on the potential of cognitive, with Finance thought-leaders from Oracle and AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants).

Optimizing incentive compensation: aligning what you say with how you pay
CSO Insights’ ICPM study* found that 69 percent of organizations use three or more metrics to build their sales compensation plans, but modeling and planning this sales strategy can quickly become too complex as a spreadsheet-driven exercise. It is crucial to get these incentive compensation structures right, because sales reps receive up to 60 percent of their income from incentive comp.
In this white paper, we discuss the disconnect between sales behavior and incentive compensation structure and provide recommended steps towards optimizing your compensation plan.
Digital tools and technologies are redefining the way we work and CFOs are faced with many challenges to keep up with changes and drive the best decisions. So how can the use of technologies and innovation can help CFOs drive better decision making?

An agile finance operating model is emerging that enables finance to better support digital business models and new ways of working. New research from the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and Oracle uncovers the traits of agile finance leaders and the strategies you need to build a modern finance operating model able to drive innovation and success in today's digital economy.
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists

So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.
