This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.
A lot can slow down your team. From version control and inefficiencies to separate workflows and inconsistent apps, working together isn’t always easy—but it can be. Solving these problems will enable a productive workforce and business efficiency. Download this free, interactive e-book for complete details.
A vigorous demand generation program and digital strategy can help a company identify new buyers, distinguish itself from competitors, drive efficiencies, and generate thousands of leads at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing efforts like trade shows and events.

When you embark on an SAP HANA® transformation, your goals include improving efficiencies, serving external customers better and driving business continuity. All too often, the transformation doesn't go as smoothly as it should. Learn key aspects of deploying SAP HANA from your industry peers, as captured by Coleman Parkes Research.
In spite of the growth of virtual business activities performed via the World Wide Web, every business transaction or operation is performed at a physical place. And as handheld GPS devices drive a growing awareness of the concept of "location," people are increasingly looking for operational efficiencies, revenue growth, or more effective management as a result of geographic data services and location-based intelligence. In this white paper, David Loshin, president of Knowledge Integrity, Inc., introduces geographic data services (such as geocoding and proximity matching) and discusses how they are employed in both operational and analytical business applications. The paper also reviews analytical techniques applied across many types of organizations and examines a number of industry-specific usage scenarios.
Whether your enterprise is on a journey of cloud transformation or you simply need to do more with less, moving backup to the cloud offers unprecedented cost savings. These 7 points will show you—and your CIO and CFO — how to dramatically reduce the overall storage footprint of your organization and slash costs while gaining the efficiencies of the cloud.
There is a lot of excitement in the market about artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning
(ML), and natural language processing (NLP). Although many of these technologies have been
available for decades, new advancements in compute power along with new algorithmic
developments are making these technologies more attractive to early adopter companies. These
organizations are embracing advanced analytics technologies for a number of reasons including
improving operational efficiencies, better understanding behaviors, and gaining competitive
The most recent decade has seen rapid advances in connectivity, mobility, analytics, scalability, and data, spawning what has been called the fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0. This fourth industrial revolution has digitalized operations and resulted in transformations in manufacturing efficiency, supply chain performance, product innovation, and in some cases enabled entirely new business models.
This transformation should be top of mind for quality leaders, as quality improvement and monitoring are among the top use cases for Industry 4.0. Quality 4.0 is closely aligning quality management with Industry 4.0 to enable enterprise efficiencies, performance, innovation and business models. However, much of the market isn’t focusing on Quality 4.0, since many quality teams are still trying to solve yesterday’s problems: inefficiency caused by fragmented systems, manual metrics calculations, quality teams independently performing quality work with minimal cross-functional own
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as a core transformational technology of the digital era. The ability to gather data from sensors embedded throughout an enterprise can drive insights and operational efficiencies from the supply chain to the customer. But IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementations require high degrees of IT/OT convergence - collaboration and integration between information technology and operational technology groups - to succeed.
These two groups, however, often have different goals, performance metrics, and perspectives on both the collaboration and the outcome. This SAS/HPE-sponsored paper helps readers get a better understanding of the relationship, either real or perceived, between these two groups. Futurum Research surveyed the state of the relationship between IT and OT teams as it pertains to the design, implementation, and creation of value through IoT technologies.

If you’re like most corrugated packaging manufacturers, your company operates multiple plants where each plant uses a different enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This arrangement of multiple ERP systems could be costing you valuable time and money and promoting inefficiencies such as manual data entry. Upgrading to a single ERP system designed for multi-plant operations can help you solve these issues and more. View this whitepaper for eight ways to improve efficiencies with a single ERP system designed for multi- plant operations.
A Smarter Process approach helps leaders in the public sector to increase citizen loyalty and engagement. Gain visibility and the ability to quickly change operational systems with intelligent automation. Increase efficiencies and lower costs.
The right test data management solution accelerates time to value for business-critical applications and builds relationships and efficiencies across the organization. IBM InfoSphere Optim Test Data Management closes the gap between DBAs and application developers by providing all teams with accurate, appropriately masked and protected data for their work. Developers can confirm that new application functionalities perform as expected. QA staff can validate that the application performs as intended based on the test cases, and that integrations work properly. And business leaders can be more confident that competitive functionality will be delivered on time with less risk.
With a wealth of information readily available online, consumers are now better able to compare products, services and prices—even as they shop in physical stores. When consumers interact with retailers publicly through social media, they have greater power to influence other customers or damage a brand. These and other changes in the retail industry are creating important opportunities for retailers. But to capitalize on those opportunities, retailers need ways to collect, manage and analyze a tremendous volume, variety and velocity of data.
If retailers succeed in addressing the challenges of “big data,” they can use this data to generate valuable insights for personalizing marketing and improving the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, optimizing assortment and merchandising decisions, and removing inefficiencies in distribution and operations.
With IBM analytics for big data with a smart mobile strategy, banks can increase wallet share and assets under management while lowering the organization’s operating ratio by using more efficient channels.
The webinar will highlight how collaboration in the cloud can help companies realize cost savings and operational efficiencies that lead to greater business success. Clients will learn how IBM and IBM Business Partners can help them get there, regardless of their current starting point.
