As the trend of moving to the Cloud continues to flow from business function to business function, other trends are emerging. As organizations transform to eliminate complex functions, standardize and integrate systems to reduce costs, and minimize nonvalue add activities, they are challenging themselves to get the most from their investment. The shift from transactional to strategic, and from reporting to actionable and predictive analytics, positions companies for growth like never before. Many organizations look to break down silos, not only within their company but also within their industries, to share lessons and leverage efficiencies from others’ learnings. Our recommendation is to start by breaking down any silos that exist between finance, HR, and IT within your organization today—and discover what moving to cloud and truly adopting the SaaS lifestyle can do for your organization.
Analytics is game-changing and can produce valuable insights from the ever-growing volume,
velocity and variety of data. Business Intelligence (BI) provides the foundation for many types

In the two years since we first began working on Enterprise Cloud Strategy, much has changed. Cloud
technology has evolved from being an “if” to a “when,” and across almost all enterprises, the cloud
has now become an integral part of IT strategy. Further, there is now a growing realization that cloud
computing not only represents a set of technical opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings, but
also provides the potential to significantly transform the scope of enterprise computing. In fact, many
enterprises are finding that cloud computing offers entirely new business models, revenue streams,
and vehicles for customer intimacy.
Few technological changes have the potential to so dramatically change to the way we do business.
The last time we experienced such a tectonic shift was the with arrival of the Internet itself.
Yet, as we noted in the first edition of this book, when briefing CIOs and senior IT executives at
Microsoft, we are often told that migrating IT workloads to the

Changing business needs and the drive toward cost efficiencies and performance mean an end to reliance on traditional, proprietary storage approaches. Modern storage infrastructure enables CIOs to tackle some of their biggest pain points and put their data to work rather than viewing that data as a cost center. Driven by a desire to be flexible and “do more with less,” IT leaders are embracing things like software-defined storage, because it emphasizes freedom and openness.
With ever increasing pressure to drive higher operating efficiencies, fuel business growth and enhance shareholder value, executives today are rethinking their traditional strategies. Few areas of the business are being more challenged than information technology (IT). Increasingly, CIO's are exploring alternative IT infrastructure sourcing and delivery strategies.
This Q&A-style article from CIO Green Edge Zone covers some of the many ways businesses can benefit through green technologies. Becoming more energy efficient not only dramatically reduces power costs, but can actually help companies improve operational efficiencies, increase productivity, enhance customer service and heighten brand awareness.

Although great strides have been made to automate most services, government agencies remain burdened with processes that require high levels of manual intervention that, in turn, can lead to operational inefficiencies.
This white paper provides an overview of the growing opportunities for EDI managers and coordinators. It highlights how their role can change from being responsible for implementation of technologies for operational activities to being infrastructure leaders. It shows how they can deliver increased efficiencies and velocity for value chain automation, which increases visibility, control and agility for a business.
The challenges presented by multiple Value-Added Networks (VANs) and managing diverse trading partners create barriers to the efficiencies promised by EDI. Multiple providers mean multiple points of failure with no one entity to hold accountable. Also, as trading communities grow, end-to-end supply chain visibility becomes an essential operational requirement.
