AP automation is often described as low hanging fruit in the
garden of digital transformation. And for a good reason – the
barrier to entry is impressively low in terms of both cost and
effort needed to get up and running, particularly in comparison
to the implementation projects for other business applications.
Despite that fact, the value provided from AP automation is
comparably high. For such an easy implementation, the benefits
reach throughout an organization, beyond the walls of the AP
department, and are near-immediate from day one of using the
Standard benefits include:
- Immediate value from day one with an expected ROI within the first year
- Up to 95% truly touchless invoice processing with access to real-time cloud data for benchmarking and reporting
- Easy access to financial data, such as cash flow & accrual reporting, with full visibility and control of the AP process
This guide will help you kick-start your AP automation project by
defining the 6 steps to build a solid business case and gain the
internal approvals needed to get started.
In an era of "lean IT," the centralized management capabilities of cloud-managed Wi-Fi make it an attractive option to manage and maintain wireless LANs (WLANs) across multiple locations.
The decision to move WLAN management to the cloud requires one key assurance: end-to-end security from user devices to the cloud. This means that user data must be protected over the WAN and in the data center. These security measures should not require on-staff WLAN security expertise to manage. And security measures should be largely transparent to users.
This paper provides an overview of the security architecture of Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi, as well as best practices for specific security scenarios.
The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and
Data management doesn’t come easier than this. Thanks to machine learning, artificial intelligence and the power of the cloud just about anyone can gain insight of their data.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.

Today’s employees demand greater flexibility, productivity, and mobility. And while cloud and BYOD policies have answered that call, they’ve also added unforeseen complexities the way IT manages data security and compliance.
How can you balance productivity and risk in SaaS environments? “A Guide to Achieving SaaS Security and Compliance” deconstructs the idea that cloud security and user productivity are mutually exclusive.
This whitepaper includes guidance on how to:
Select SaaS providers that follow the very same external standards (e.g., PCI DSS) as your organization.
Apply the same in-house security, governance, and compliance principles to cloud services.
Leverage tools and processes to gain visibility, control access, and protect data in your SaaS environment.
For organizations with disaster recovery services in place, the challenge often lies in supporting the ongoing maintenance and
re-evaluating the initial investment versus newer offerings as their environment continues to expand, or leases expire.
Fortunately, the landscape of disaster recovery solutions is shifting to accommodate changing IT needs.

Customers can securely extend their data centers to the cloud rapidly, easily and confidently, using a more supportive and integrated cloud infrastructure that is FedRAMP authorized.
Private cloud is one of the critical deployment architectures IT teams are adopting as they transition to a service-centric delivery model. More than 75% of organizations? already use private clouds to lower costs, increase agility and exert greater control over security, data protection and compliance.
The transition to private cloud represents a paradigm shift in how IT is provisioned and data centers are deployed. Virtualization is expanding beyond servers into storage and networking, while software-defined models allow new levels of agility through advanced automation and orchestration.
Business teams striving to move quickly into new markets and launch new products and services are demanding more from IT organizations that have traditionally been focused on avoiding downtime, ensuring security and compliance, and holding down costs. Cloud computing offers compelling benefits for IT and the business to gain on-demand access to IT resources for new application development, as well as for running existing applications.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
As IT becomes the cloud, and ever more central to business success, projects to transform the IT systems, and more specifically the data center, have become strategic and a competitive differentiator. A crucial piece of the data center transformation puzzle, and one which is too often left until the end, is the network. As the central nervous system of the data center, its transformation must be an integral part of the entire data center transformation project.
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can
adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e
