As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.

Best practices for integrating BPM with Anypoint Platform

The question is often whether BPM is a technological problem or a cultural one. Are business processes dependent on the technologies they use or the people who use them?
The past year ushered in some big changes for Online Reputation
Management (ORM) — and the practice has become indispensable for any
In 2017, review sources proliferated, consumers became more savvy about the validity of online
reviews, and the position of Chief Experience Officer started to gain traction among locationbased
organizations. ORM and SEO became increasingly intertwined as Google refined its search
algorithms with a strong emphasis on reviews and star ratings.
This year, expect to see these four trends move to the forefront:
1) Google will extend its dominance in online review volume and consumer exposure, eclipsing all
other specialty sites.
2) SEO will be reinvented as user-generated reviews weigh more heavily in search rankings.
3) The voice of the customer will no longer be siloed across disconnected categories.
4) Consumer feedback from reviews and social media will drive operational improvements.
Creating competitive advantage starts with a
sound digital strategy.
In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search
for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites
to steer their decisions about where to go for care.
What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making.
Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your
doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient
rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website.
Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to
generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,”
while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational
improvements and drive new patient appointments.
The benefits of invoice-to-pay automation go beyond the obvious cost savings and efficiency improvements.
