Most organizations today are scrutinizing technology budgets more and more. It helps to see technology investments in terms of total economic impact (TEI). Forrester Research quantified the benefits of implementing Identity and Access Management (IAM), and one of the top reasons supporting IAM was to eliminate the need for repeated user sign-ons, which increases user satisfaction. In measuring the TEI of one large organization’s IAM investment, Forrester uncovered several areas where SSO had a direct impact on improving the customer experience and driving revenue.

As a result of our ability to more efficiently target prospective Edible Arrangements
customers using programmatic, Connected TV media buys, we were able to drive
significant increases in total sales and total revenue while spending nearly 76%
less in advertising dollars than Traditional TV.
In addition, customers engaged via our Connected TV advertising purchased both
higher quantities of Edible Arrangements’ items and higher priced items as a result.
In conclusion, our test proved our hypothesis that Connected TV can drive
significantly better ROI than traditional television advertising.

Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.
A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.

MDM can add value to the business in many different ways. It most often does so indirectly, as an enabler for other business and IT initiatives. Some of these areas of potential benefit support shorter-term or tactical efforts at helping the business operate more efficiently — that is, they help to reduce the cost bases to "run the business." Some benefit areas of MDM are related more to helping users "grow the business." That is, they help to increase the revenue and market share within a given business model or framework. Yet other areas of opportunity fall into the "transform the business" arena — for example, allowing customer support representatives to perform inside sales activities enabled by trusted customer and product master data.
