Construction companies are meeting the challenge of ever-intensifying competition by refining their business operations with standardized operating practices and “visible” information that is shared among multiple departments.
“Before, only owners who wanted to grow a very large company would worry about transitioning from the informal business they started to formalized, standardized business processes,” says Jim Flynn, CEO of Maxwell Systems, a leading provider of construction management software solutions, expert services, and best practices. “But in the current environment, you also have to make that transition just to stay competitive and improve your profitability.”
As social media use has grown, an urgent need has emerged to correlate the information generated through social data with existing consumer information, and integrate it with sophisticated data management systems.

Today, large organizations are being buffeted by a host of changes, many of them unexpected or unfamiliar. Business information is virtually exploding in size, kind and locale, taxing the abilities of even the most progressive enterprises to keep up. Mobile technologies and business analytics that were once exclusively used by employees with specialized needs and skills are now common across the entire workforce. As a result of all this, IT is bending under the strain of developing and delivering necessary new services while at the same time maintaining core service quality.
This report will consider these issues, as well as IBM’s position in and efforts around developing next generation enterprise systems solutions, including its System z mainframes, POWER7+ processor-based Power Systems servers and System Storage offerings focused on those areas and use cases.

Historically in the enterprise, Macs have been managed separately from iOS devices in separate consoles, sometimes by different groups within IT. Traditional domain-joined management posed several problems for today’s modern enterprise. Nowadays, managing Macs like mobile devices means they can be configured over the air, without ever having to be domain-joined. That’s a major plus for global organizations, remote workers and companies who use contractors or freelancers. Unifying parallel device environments enables streamlined oversight, management and distribution of content across Macs and iOS devices.
With AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management, IT can implement a BYOD program and policy for all device types, ensuring personal information remains private. IT has a consistent management experience for all device types and operating systems, enabling a single-pane-of-glass view of all endpoints in an enterprise.
In this Forrester Wave evaluation of customer relationship management (CRM) suites for enterprise organizations, we identified the nine most significant CRM suites solutions — Infor CRM (formerly known as SalesLogix), Microsoft Dynamics CRM, NetSuite, Oracle Siebel CRM, Pegasystems, Salesforce, SAP CRM, SAP Cloud for Customer, and SugarCRM — and researched, analyzed, and scored them.

Whoever made up the saying “It’s not worth the paper" it’s printed on obviously had no idea just how much that piece of paper costs from a business standpoint. One study from Resources Information Systems Inc. (RISI) estimates companies spend about $8 billion per year just managing paper. And that's only in the US. Expand that
globally, and it’s a world of pain.

Cloud computing has changed the way businesses and people think about using technology to serve their needs. Too many, cloud computing is nothing but hype and overblown as the new direction for Information Technology. But to many more, cloud computing represents the future of how every business should plan, operate and execute applications, systems and processes. Goldman Sachs forecasts spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018 compared with 5 percent growth for overall enterprise IT. Moreover, Forrester recently revised its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20 percent. Regardless, it is important to know what cloud computing is.
Thanks to numerous, headline-making incidents in recent years,
cybercrime has risen toward the top of the concern list for many
organizations—and the customers with whom they do business.
You’ve heard many of the stories. Major health insurers, such as
Anthem, Premera BlueCross and CareFirst had personal information
for millions of their customers stolen. Sony Pictures experienced
a breach that not only embarrassed employees and adversely
impacted the release of the high-profile film, “The Interview,” but
also damaged systems and applications—making it extremely
difficult for the company to conduct business. The list goes on.
Some you maybe haven’t heard, like the one about CodeSpaces, a
provider of version management services to developers. When
attackers were able to gain access to its cloud-based management
consoles, they deleted the company’s entire infrastructure and
backups—ultimately forcing CodeSpaces out of business.
The bad news for organizations like yours is, thanks to the
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) have taken leading roles in exploring requirements for Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems for government
Mobile devices, particularly smartphones, are exceptionally vulnerable to security breaches. They are easily lost, are filled with unknown applications, communicate over untrusted networks, and are often purchased by users without regard to IT standards and security features.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
The role of enterprise content management (ECM) as a centralized document repository is well established. However, the value of ECM increases exponentially when it is leveraged as an information hub between line-of-business (LOB) systems to facilitate key processes, keep data in sync and maximize investments in existing applications.
An integral part of your information management technology strategy is how you actually get the needed information into your business systems. Do you have staff devoting time to manually entering data in those systems? Data capture solutions automatically extract data from incoming documents and make data validation simple.

Cloud migration has exploded in popularity since General Electric’s (GE’s) flashy keynote at Amazon Web Service’s (AWS’s) re:Invent in September 2015. GE claims to be migrating all workloads not containing secret information. Enterprises are revisiting public cloud and exploring whether existing or systems-of-record applications have a place in that world. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals on this path should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to outsourcing and migration plans, opting instead for an app-by-app assessment.
