Changing healthcare market forces, such as value-based care models, consolidation, and payer mix erosion, have propagated declining margins and fueled hyper-competition among healthcare organizations vying for market share. In this new world, determining effective patient engagement strategies has become paramount for hospitals and health systems as they strive to acquire, retain, and re-activate patients, and, ultimately, drive revenue. Now, more than ever, it is critical that healthcare organizations create and maintain positive, lasting relationships with their patients, both current and prospective, working to attract them into their network and keep them there.
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
The legal industry is well past the days when scrawled notes in a day planner constituted time recording. The business of law has changed, requiring that time entries comply with client requirements and firm objectives. We believe the path forward is a new concept that we call “compliant time”: a way to streamline timekeeping and improve time-capture accuracy while also ensuring adherence to OCGs.This ebook explores the gaps and inefficiencies in the current stateat most law firms and shows how compliant time can help resolve these issues. Insights into how current processes impact and inhibit internal law firm stakeholder objectives reveal why firms simply must find new approaches. Declining realization rates, competitive market forces, and lawyer attraction/retention challenges are all factors that point to a need for change in time and billing technology.

Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.

Recent evolution in the mobile applications market now offers enterprises new opportunities for reaching customers in ways never before possible. In the past 18 months, a number of independent market forces have converged to enable goods-and-services providers to market to specific customers, at specific times, at specific locations.

The pace of change is accelerating. Customer expectations, competitive shifts and regulatory changes are disrupting global markets—and the way you do business. In this fast-paced application economy, software is at the heart of every business, driving every industry.

To survive the disruptive outside forces lurking around practically every corner, you have to stay on top of your game and a step ahead of competitors. Your peers at other companies are likely facing challenges similar to yours, yet you see them leading the industry by consistently sensing market opportunities and delivering innovative new products.

We work in an ever-changing landscape of competitors, market forces, customer relationships, partner alliances, political and regulatory pressures, and global climate effects. The common mechanism for coping effectively with change is to refer to canned reports and dashboards, dump reporting data into a spreadsheet and look for answers to today's questions. All too often, we have to rely on estimates rather than models, and gut feel rather than data, because we can't get answers in a timely fashion. Yet we know that the answers lie hidden in the morass of corporate data.

The insights provided by more than 700 Chief Human Resource Officers around the world show how workforce investment is shifting. Companies are beginning to focus more on growth, expanding into new markets and offering new products and services. But to make the most of potential growth opportunities in today’s dynamic global marketplace, organizations need to find ways to address the “borders” that are currently impeding their workforces.
Based on the key capability gaps revealed in this study, we believe organizations should focus on three critical workforce imperatives: cultivating creative leaders, mobilizing for speed and flexibility and capitalizing on collective intelligence.
Organizations of all sizes across nearly every industry sector are facing unprecedented macro-market forces that are driving them to seek new business intelligence (BI) tools to achieve their corporate objectives. Traditional BI systems generally require dedicated staff to generate meaningful analysis, but the analysis is still difficult to share. As a result, many departmental managers and end users have relied on simple spreadsheets, which require significant manual effort and provide limited insight.
With the widespread adoption of predictive analytics, organizations have a number of solutions at their fingertips. From machine learning capabilities to open platform architectures, the resources available to innovate with growing amounts of data are vast.
In this TDWI Navigator Report for Predictive Analytics, researcher Fern Halper outlines market opportunities, challenges, forces, status and landscape to help organizations adopt technology for managing and using their data. As highlighted in this report, TDWI shares some key differentiators for SAS, including the breadth and depth of functionality when it comes to advanced analytics that supports multiple personas including executives, IT, data scientists and developers.

Across the mid-market, inefficiencies are compounded by the lack of visibility into pertinent data, of processes being adequately and flexibly automated, and for the performance of the business to be monitored on a constant basis. Without such capabilities, businesses will find it difficult to survive the current financial conditions – yet creating an environment where information can be easily aggregated and viewed has never been easier. Also, business performance can be easily monitored with small proactive, and even reactive, actions ensuring effective responses to market forces and enabling organisations to compete with local and more global business threats.
