As organizations look for more ways to increase productivity and profitability, human resources departments are being asked to provide more strategic input to executives. Doing so requires tools that improve access to timely, accurate information for enhanced business decision making. If you don’t have a human resource management system (HRMS), HR can end up spending too much time on repetitive day-to-day tasks like paperwork while struggling to deliver meaningful workforce insights. The right HR management software can help the HR team increase control over employee data, optimize productivity, and take employee engagement to the next level, so you can deliver the future workforce your organization needs to succeed. This white paper discusses the five areas to keep in mind when evaluating solutions to find an HRMS that’s a good fit for your business.
In the business world, the convergence of voice and data – as well as video and mobility – has evolved into unified communications, an enabler that is difficult to pigeonhole. Encompassing voice, data, video, mobility, and more, it can be located on site or it can be delivered/hosted from the “cloud”. Most important, UC ensures that information is available and people are reachable anytime, anywhere on almost any device of their choosing.
Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.

Good supply chain management is essential to your operational efficiency, customer centricity, compliance, carbon footprint, and ultimately, your overall success. If handled correctly, your supply chain should improve customer service—along with the reputation of your brand—and boost your bottom line. But, as with many areas of business, the rules of the game are changing.
What’s changing? Well, everything. New regulations, increased buyer expectations, shorter product lifecycles, fluctuations in demand, new market entrants, more ethical supplier management, poor visibility of globalized supply chains—all these things, and more, are testing the limits of the traditional supply chain model. The simple truth is that the way things used to be done, and the solutions that enabled it, are no longer up to the job.
Today, organizations need levels of flexibility, integration, and visibility that are beyond what those systems were designed to deliver.

In today’s highly competitive business environment, many organizations are expanding through mergers and acquisitions (M&As). Unfortunately, success comes at a cost. Growth via M&A activity often involves absorbing disparate ERP applications, which, over time, can create significant inefficiencies — particularly in the accounts payable (AP) department. The good news is, AP automation is emerging as an end-to-end solution that forward-thinking organizations can use to eliminate AP-related silos and maximize their market potential.
Businesses with a complex ERP environment have several choices when it comes to AP automation solutions.
This white paper is intended to assist AP and finance leaders, along with ERP system administrators, in evaluating their options, simplifying the decision-making process, and getting the absolute most out of their AP automation investment.

Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage.
Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and
flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner

predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined
data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking,
and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.
