Leading a successful business means knowing the market, understanding
product trends, hiring the right people, enabling those people, staying on top
of expenses, making the right investments and countless other responsibilities.
One area you may or may not have on your mind is compensation. In today’s
tight talent market and ever-increasing competition spurred by technology,
the web and globalization, getting compensation right is more important than
ever. It impacts recruiting and retention, sure, but it also affects company
culture and even your bottom line. It has legal implications, too.
With the changing demographics (and expectations) of the current workforce, plus
automation opportunities today’s software provides, it’s time to modernize your
organization’s compensation. In this guide, we’ll share in detail the reasons you
should make modernizing your comp a priority, the value and ROI of implementing
modern compensation software and specifically how PayScale’s modern comp

Marketing automation is a technology solution that helps enable the seeding, creation, nurturing and acceleration of demand among prospects and customers (see the brief “Marketing Automation Platforms Defined”). Given that marketing automation platforms (MAPs) are an essential component of every b-to-b organization’s marketing infrastructure, organizations understand the need for these platforms, as well as their internal need for optimized processes and skills to leverage them.
However, while most b-to-b marketers understand the value of lead nurturing, lead scoring/prioritization, program and tactic level reporting, and the SiriusDecisions Demand Waterfall®, they often struggle to operationalize these processes with MAPs, which is why selecting the right MAP is imperative. In this SiriusView, we describe MAP providers’ differences to help organizations identify which MAPs best meet their needs.
This series explores the role of modern digital technology in the evolution of manufacturing production, defined here as the value chain of internal and external contributors to the manufacture and delivery of products. Each chapter is designed to help operators visualize how they can build-out production of the future, and how to leverage help from the value chain to make faster progress.
State and local governments can reduce their technology costs by adopting a “best value” approach to procurement. This brief focuses on the benefits of best-value purchasing for your agency’s critical print and document management solutions.

When you’re in the software
business, your resources can be
spread pretty thin.
You like to stay focused on building great
software, but there are always distractions—
from supporting sales opportunities to
assisting with customer deployments and
troubleshooting existing installations. With
so much time spent maintaining the status
quo, few cycles remain for modernizing your
technology, streamlining internal operations,
delivering new customer value, and
broadening your customer base.
More likely than not, your offerings are based
on an on-premises approach, forcing you and
your customers to spend considerable time
on essential requirements like infrastructure,
scalability, availability, and security. Today, you
still must deliver on those essentials, but the
solutions you’re building—or, more accurately,
the solutions you want to be building—need to
do a lot more: support millions of users, span
the globe, make sense of petabytes of data,
and wow users in new ways.
At the same time, y
To put it carefully, certain technology decisions at the federal level since 2002 have been questionable. But citing new “Cloud First” policies for implementations in government contact centers, data centers, and federal agencies, cloud initiatives are now showing value by way of cost reductions and broader functionality. Abdo Rabadi of Blue Kite Consultants and Mechele Herres of Interactive Intelligence say even more benefits of the cloud await. Read how the federal government can best achieve them.

If you are responsible for BI (Business Intelligence) in your organization, there are three questions you should ask yourself:
- Are there applications in my organization for combining operational processes with analytical insight that we can't deploy because of performance and capacity constraints with our existing BI environment?
This white paper will discuss how intelligently integrating the right people, processes, and technology automation solutions can help you overcome these obstacles. Combining this integration with a tested and proven best practice framework, such as ITIL, enables IT organizations to reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, elevate service quality, and demonstrate the value IT brings to the business.
Business integration, along with the IT integration resources required to support it, has become an essential focus for companies across industries. These organizations want to update existing technology assets—and realize new value from what were previously disconnected and isolated applications.
Most CRM systems rely on historical analytics that provide a "rear-view mirror" of your customer relationships, offering little support for the decisions that shape the future. With predictive analytics, you can meet your customers' evolving needs with forward-looking insights that anticipate changes in customer attitudes, preferences, and actions. This white paper from IBM describes how a set of five predictive imperatives can help ensure that your company maximizes the value of its customer relationships and sustains higher levels of revenues and profits.
Integrated Services Management, or ISM, is a major evolutionary force guiding management technology and practice progress in enterprises today. The implications of ISM are broad, but the essence of the initiative is a re-thinking of how IT delivers value to the organization it serves, and a re-framing of all IT contributions around the concept of services.

This evolving technology promises faster deployment, lower costs and improved IT staff productivity.
Hyperconverged data centers were once a niche technology that mostly appealed to organizations with specialized needs, such as streamlining the management of small and branch offices. Today, many enterprises are now recognizing the value of transitioning their conventional data centers into hyperconverged facilities.
Gartner reports that by 2018 hyperconverged integrated systems will represent as much as 35 percent of total converged infrastructure shipments by revenue, up from a low single-digit base in 2015. Download this white paper to learn more!
