Even if you have only 15 mobile workforce employees, you can reduce costs and improve the customer’s experience using optimization software. Today, it’s easy because you don’t even have to provide dedicated mobile devices to your field employees, just an app. But how do you avoid difficult transitions for workers, long implementation times, and solutions that don’t work as you really needed? This paper walks you through the 6 steps to successful decision making.
Businesses with between 15-250 mobile workforce employees are looking for optimization software. At the same time, they don’t want a complex enterprise solution with long integration times and complex IT requirements. Many vendors are offering cloud-based solutions. But what does that mean? Is it secure? In this Q&A, we answer the most common questions about cloud-based software solutions for field service management.
To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
The use of SaaS applications within an organization is the new normal. In fact, there's a good chance that just your marketing department alone is using over 10 SaaS products.
According to Gartner, the 2015 worldwide market for SaaS software application sales was $33.4 billion, with projections to double to $67.2 billion by 2019. Integration needs are changing, with SaaS applications, as well as mobile traffic, social networks, IoT, suppliers, partners, and customer channels all new integration points that will need to be captured in your business processes.

Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
Read how companies such as Beam Suntory have redefined enterprise architecture and learn more about the way an integrated hyperconverged infrastructure can help you build the right infrastructure for the future.
The enhanced performance that results from the DevOps approach has been proven to have a big impact on the overall performance of the business, with faster, more reliable software delivery, consequent cost savings, and faster time to value. Now that cloud is an integral element of the enterprise, automation of cloud management is key, and feeds into the DevOps approach. VMware offers your IT organization the opportunity to become DevOps-ready, using the GUI and API-led approach to enable an automated self-service infrastructure.
Business intelligence analytics streamline the task of gathering critical data across the health care enterprise and turns it into readily accessible, actionable information. Health care business intelligence is a package of software and services that offers clarity on and control over the vast amount of data needed to successfully run a medical organization.
Cloud computing and all-flash storage are two of the most important innovations driving next-generation IT initiatives. While it may seem at first that these are parallel trends, in reality they are inextricably intertwined. Without the benefits of all-flash storage —driving new levels of performance, agility and management simplicity — enterprises would not be able to modernize their infrastructures to deliver cloud services. It is no coincidence that the largest hyperscale cloud providers rely on all-flash storage solutions as their storage foundation.
Pure Storage all-flash storage arrays provide enterprise customers with a safe, secure and smooth path to the all-flash cloud. You can take the journey in stages, starting small with a single application or two, and then adding more applications through consolidation and virtualization. You can also implement multiple stages at once.
Storing data is critical. Everyone stores data. Today, it’s all about how you use the data you’re storing and if you’re storing the right data. The right mix of data and the ability to analyze it against all data types is driving markets worldwide in what is known as digital transformation.
Digital transformation requires storing, accessing, and analyzing all types of data as fast and efficiently as possible. The end goal is to derive insights and gain a competitive advantage by using those insights to move faster and deliver smarter products and services than your competition.
This book helps you understand DevOps and how your organization can gain real business benefits from it. You also discover how a holistic view of DevOps that encompasses the entire software delivery life cycle.

Business travel accounts for the majority
of your employee expenses. Travel and
expenses are intrinsically linked, so why
not manage them together?
When you combine travel and expense, some
questions are easier to answer:
• Where can I find a full picture of travel and
• Are expense claims aligned to my travel policy?
• Can I reclaim some VAT?
To connect travel and expense management,
businesses usually look for software that can
manage both processes from beginning to end.
This is commonly referred to as an integrated

faster delivery or improved employee adoption
Business demands are shifting. The pace of technology is speeding up. The ability to deliver applications faster while building a hybrid cloud strategy is no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have for modern businesses looking to stay competitive while meeting customer needs.
The fast pace of digital business spurred organizations around the world to embrace compute virtualization, which transformed the data center over the past decade.
But that transformation isn’t complete. Many IT teams still rely on hardware-centric approaches to storage and networking, which are expensive and time-consuming to manage and maintain, and don’t provide the flexibility and agility that today’s users demand.
In an era where speed and performance are critical, moving to a software-centric approach in every area of the data center is the only way to get ahead.
That’s why so many organizations are turning to hyperconverged infrastructure.
