For complex manufacturing environments, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) falls short when it comes to delivering improvements in productivity. That's because OEE tools were originally developed to measure the performance of stand-alone equipment or the total output of a particular line. Today's enterprises need more. This paper describes an evolution in thinking: focusing on product flow through the process.
Until recently, the waterfall methodology of development and deployment had taken a strategic hold in the majority of enterprises. Enterprises have moved into the world of Agile, where different concepts are leveraged and the development process is handled in a completely different fashion. Agile development ideologies are proving to be a better way to deal with rapidly changing objectives and speeding the time-to-market for business applications, services and other customer- (or internal-) facing offerings. The ideas behind Agile extend beyond basic application development, and can benefit numerous projects by improving the process to achieve deliverables and garner improved productivity.
Your mobile device is speaking to your garage door. Your alarm is telling your coffee maker you are up and it’s time to get that caffeine kick going. Your car is dropping your thermostat a message, telling it to keep the house warm before you step in. This isn’t a quote from an Issac Asimov novel, it’s the reality of how the Internet of Things is making a difference to our lives.
Most of us are consciously making the shift to a connected world, while at home or at work. While this has caught the public imagination, enterprises are chasing to fulfil their Internet-of-Things-ambitions and transform their customer experience.
In this e-book we aim to address the 5 fundamental questions that one should not hesitate to ask about your foray into the world of Internet of Things, while telling you how it can reshape your business.

With an ever-growing array of customer interactions, especially digital, businesses are rapidly looking to gain competitive advantage by using data and insights at scale to create and activate 360-degree profiles of their customers to deliver a better experience. In a rush to accelerate digital growth and improve their business strategies, many global enterprises have built soiled, redundant technology environments, resulting in inaccurate, or worse, conflicting views of their customer's brand interactions. For example, Forrester's research reveals that 90% of enterprises use multiple analytics tools.
2019 may be the year where a strong CIO-CMO relationship moves from aspiration to imperative. The notion that marketing and IT should aim to strategically align themselves is not ground-breaking. But the reality of the CIO-CMO relationship is more complex, the route toward its success harder to traverse. When large enterprises are faced with digital transformation and customer-facing initiatives; too often, IT and marketing fail to collaborate well enough to create a competitive advantage. Or even enough to keep up with competitors.
This whitepaper takes a deep dive into the CIO-CMO relationship. It was created to help marketing and IT decision makers learn how, together, they can make a realistic and immediate impact on the customer journey.
The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP Company, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying StandOut. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of StandOut on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with experience using StandOut. StandOut is an integrated suite that pairs a technology platform with coaching to help organizations achieve their talent activation goals.
Prior to using StandOut, the interviewed organizations did not have a structured program to improve and measure employee engagement and performance. Organizations used annual surveys and annual performance reviews, and some even encouraged weekly check-ins, but there was no guidance on how to complete these tasks, and the data t
Small and medium enterprises are increasingly upgrading to a UC system, which can improve customer service, streamline product development and speed response to new opportunities. Learn the key steps of UC adoption.
If your company operates in the cloud, you’ve probably thought about investing in a Cloud Management Platform (CMP) — a group of integrated products that manage public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. That combination is what AHEAD calls an Enterprise Cloud. For an enterprise with a heavy private cloud emphasis, the right CMP can transform your VM provisioning, reducing a potentially weeks-long manual process to an automated one that finishes in a matter of minutes. And if you run one or more public clouds, the right CMP can help you take better control of your cloud services, manage your cloud spending, and architect your app platforms to run seamlessly in the cloud.
So Which CMP Will Work Best For You?
The first thing to consider is compatibility with your existing environment. For many enterprises, that’s going to put a premium on CMPs that integrate natively with VMware. For other businesses, compatibility with ServiceNow or support for multiple private and public clouds wi
If your business is like many other
organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure
and manage cost, while at the same
time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance
framework to allow enterprises to
develop and maintain a fully optimized,
and secure environment. The resulting
framework will be tailored to your
organization’s specific business and
compliance needs, as every enterprise
is different. This guide will introduce you
to the components of this necessary
Azure Foundational Governance Design.
Many enterprises have
VMware tools into their
environments and are now
looking to reap the benefits of
the cloud. But this migration
isn’t as easy as flipping a
switch, especially if you’re
looking to continue running
your VMware environment.
The ability to utilize your
existing VMware tools on
an AWS platform can result
in a more cost-effective,
simplified cloud experience,
allowing organizations to
begin their cloud journey by
moving workloads closer to
native cloud services. In this
document, we will review
ideal use cases for VMware
on AWS (VMC).
Manufacturers, in an effort to succeed with digital transformation, are relying on the Internet and public cloud to deliver key enterprise applications and processes.

Read this paper to learn key considerations for architects to create a holistic network that takes today’s, and tomorrow’s, requirements into consideration.
Most enterprises are providing employees and third parties with remote access to their applications in much the same way they did 20 years ago—through VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—but new and growing realities are forcing enterprises to take a different path.
Read this whitepaper to learn five reasons why enterprises need a new access model.
Microsoft’s SharePoint Platform is used by tens of thousands of enterprises worldwide to share information with employees and third parties. Many of these users access Sharepoint remotely, which is cumbersome and put the enterprise at risk.
Read this paper to learn three reasons why IT needs a new approach to third-party access to Sharepoint.
Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason. Most Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks require little skill to launch with attackers can simply rent resources from DDoS-for-hire sites at a low cost.. In comparison, DDoS attacks typically result in:
• Operational disruption
• Loss of confidential data
• Lost user productivity
• Reputational harm
• Damage to partner and customer relations
• Lost revenue
Depending on your industry, that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars in damage – and in some cases it could be millions. Only 2% of organizations said their web applications had not been compromised in the past 12 months – 98% said they had.
Today, enterprises are providing employees and third parties with remote access to their applications in much the same way they did 20 years ago – through VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops. Read this whitepaper to learn 5 key reasons why it’s time for enterprises to adopt a new remote access model.
Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason. The attacks can expose confidential data and website resources to malicious uses, reduce performance, and render sites unavailable. Responsible organizations proactively block web attacks to protect their reputations, site availability, site performance, and confidential data.
Malicious botnets present multiple challenges to enterprises — some threaten security, and others merely impact performance or web analytics. A growing concern in the bot environment is the practice of credential stuffing, which capitalizes on both a bot’s ability to automate repeat attempts and the growing number of online accounts held by a single user. As bot technologies have evolved, so have their methods of evading detection. This report explains how the credential stuffing exploit challenges typical bot management strategies, and calls for a more comprehensive approach.
