As deal complexity has risen, so too has customers' risk aversion and the number of stakeholders dedicated to a given purchase. The best companies build consensus among diverse groups by tapping into the right values and fostering an environment of collective learning.
The key challenge of B2B selling today: customer purchase processes are overwhelmed by an increasingly large and diverse number of customer stakeholders who can’t reach consensus on a common course of action. Learn how to overcome buyer dysfunction and guide customer to consensus.
Midmarket enterprises strive for success in a highly competitive landscape. Being a successful leader means encouraging employees to collaborate and work more efficiently to increase the success of the enterprise. Technology solutions can empower employees for success at work, home, and when mobile, but technology must also be able to support changes that occur in a business without increasing the risks associated with providing excellent customer service, fostering innovation, and engaging with an enterprise’s stakeholders.
Gain Immediate Value from Your Connected Factory Architecture!
Imagine if you could reconfigure your production line in days instead of weeks. Or if you could cut long search times for parts in half using factory wireless across a connected factory architecture.
These are only a few of the reasons why leading manufacturers deploy Cisco’s Connected Factory Solution.
Now you can try out these new technologies and capabilities on a small scale, with low financial risk in your own plant with the Cisco Connected Factory Starter Kit. Create a living lab and test out one or more specific use cases. Use it as a demo to get buy in from stakeholders. Or get one production line up and running immediately and roll out a more comprehensive deployment later on.

As digital workplace initiatives grow, it is vital to examine their impact through a financial business case to obtain funding, structure stakeholder dialogue and secure commitment. Here, we describe how IT leaders can create a convincing business case with a strong link to business benefits.
¦ It is difficult for IT leaders to quantify the financial returns associated with digital workplace initiatives, as they often fail to recognize the broad and indirect benefits.
¦ Treating digital workplace initiatives as infrastructure rollouts obscures their business relevance and distances business stakeholders, whose commitment is vital for success.
¦ Business and finance executives are more likely to take seriously a digital workplace initiative with a credible financial impact assessment.

CureSeq’s mission is to “revolutionize next-generation sequencing in the oncology space.” To accomplish this, the company must reach as many researchers and clinical oncologists as possible to help them identify and treat cancer. CureSeq, whose work has been published in scientific journals, needed a reliable online meeting solution to communicate effectively with critical stakeholders around the world. After struggling with several other solutions, the company selected Cisco WebEx to take advantage of the platform’s presentation and document-sharing capabilities and audio quality.
Today, stakeholders and projects pepper the globe. Successfully navigating the project lifecycle - from risk management and estimating to managing scope and facilitating knowledge transfer - now requires a different recipe.
Driving Change of Property and Casualty – Transform Your Customer Experience
INSURERS ARE UNDERSTANDABLY EAGER to differentiate customer experience by automating mobile workforce management—especially when they can also cut operational costs, reduce carbon footprint, and streamline catastrophe response in the process. But this profound transformation in the daily lives of field claims and other mobile workers must be managed carefully to maximize benefits while minimizing disruption for all stakeholders.

Traditional tools of the engineering trade don’t accommodate today’s need for cross-team collaboration. From using different mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) applications to working on projects with stakeholders located all over the world, engineers have to overcome various obstacles to get the job done. Learn how technology can help streamline communications and collaboration, ultimately setting up your team for success.
Jim Brown, President of Tech-Clarity, explores how fast growing, midsized, High-Tech manufacturing companies can accelerate their time-to-market by streamlining their engineering and business processes on a unified platform.
Watch the 20-min webinar and learn:
• How a unified platform accelerates collaboration between all stakeholders of product development
• How the principle of ‘invisible governance’ helps engineering teams save time on unnecessary reporting and administration
• How online collaboration helps build customer intimacy and validate product ideas early and effectively
• How modern, secure social collaboration platforms can smoothly transition to structured product development
Dassault Systèmes' has been named by Gartner, Inc. as a “Leader” in its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems. 2017 is the first year for the Gartner Magic Quadrant for MES, which specifically covered the MES market, including MOM applications.
Because of our position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant we believe it confirms the positive response we are receiving on our vision and ability to execute the transformation of manufacturing. We also believe we are being recognized for our unique and holistic approach to MOM / MES and the greater transformative value that digital continuity with DELMIA has across manufacturing engineering, manufacturing operations and the supply chain.
DELMIA® Manufacturing Operations Management solutions transform global production operations to achieve and sustain operational excellence. This is accomplished through digital continuity, a shared digital landscape connecting all stakeholders to improve visibility into, control over a
A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.
As more companies compete for business, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) increasingly demand higher production rates and greater production flexibility from suppliers. If smaller-sized companies want to compete, they need the right tools and latest technology. NC Machining manufactures should ask three primary questions when considering the tools to improve competitiveness and implement Lean practices:
• Do the tools provide the means for improved collaboration between engineering and manufacturing, and incorporate manufacturing best practices?
• Can all data and program information reside in one database or platform that is accessible concurrently by all enterprise stakeholders—from design engineering to the shop floor?
• Is it possible to perform real-time multi-disciplinary simulations to improve performance and manufacturing targets?
