In an industry driven to deliver alpha, where might financial services firms find
opportunities when investing in application innovation?
The answer is data.
Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better.
Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before
the competition is better. That’s how data delivers alpha.

Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
For many organizations, managing and delivering the knowledge contained within documents is difficult or impossible due to technological disparity. Conventional approaches to knowledge
management work within the constraints of disparate platforms, applications, and output devices, and fail to address technological disparity.

This Executive White Paper, sponsored by Pitney Bowes Marketing Solutions, a provider of web-based marketing automation solutions, examines the competitive advantages offered by marketing automation portals and the potential impact of these types of portals on marketing campaigns deployed in complex, rapidly evolving markets.
Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.

Case management frameworks built on business process management platforms help IT solutions architects deploy case-handling applications and offer an alternative to specialized case management applications and custom coding. According to Gartner, the complex architecture required to support case management has relegated it to the status of a niche application, typically addressed by specialist, commercial off-the-shelf application providers and system integrators. Case management as a process style is being applied in many sectors beyond government, legal and insurance, including healthcare, banking, higher education and retail. Industry and cross-industry case management frameworks are now available. "Adaptive case management" hype exceeds the reality of what buyers need. Gartner evaluated 12 vendors including Pegasystems against nine critical capabilities in four use cases.

Today’s global business model presents both opportunities for business agility and challenges for IT management. To do business effectively, organizations require an IT infrastructure at remote locations that delivers applications and data with high performance and high reliability. Download this paper and learn how you can enjoy the benefits of having remote offices without the need for an entire IT staff to support it.
More than 23 million servers in the world are still running on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system, making it the most popular engine for serving information and applications globally for over a decade. But, starting in July 2015, Microsoft will no longer provide basic support for it.
Migrating your enterprise to a modern Microsoft® Windows® operating system is a complex process that can strain IT resources. That’s why Dell is focused on helping customers meet the deadline of the decade: On 14 July 2015 support for Windows 2003 will cease. The strategic value to efficient Windows migration is application, hardware and deployment readiness.
Technology is moving fast and your data center needs to keep up so your business can thrive. Migrating to the latest platforms and solutions, such as Windows® Server® 2012 R2, lets you take advantage of its virtualization advancements and tap into the Microsoft cloud OS. Combined with unique innovations featured in Dell server, storage and networking solutions, you can do more than modernize your IT — you can transform it.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.
With support for Windows Server 2003 ending, transitioning to Server 2012 is clearly a must for companies. While migration will be an adjustment for organizations relying on niche applications that are 10 years old, the costs of not upgrading to Server 2012 could prove fatal.
With new technologies, new opportunities often emerge, especially in business. The advent of innovations, such as social media and mobile devices, is changing the ways businesses interact with customers and the ways in which customers desire to be engaged. Opportunities arising from the benefits of salesforce automation, business intelligence (BI), and customer relationship management (CRM) applications are providing new levels of insight, helping businesses acquire customers more efficiently and retain those customers longer. As a direct result, organizations that invest in better understanding potential customers are likely to see higher returns than those organizations that possess a more limited understanding of their customer base. Seeking the competitive advantage resulting from improved customer focus, IT organizations have increased investment in business intelligence and analytics and the underlying infrastructure to support those applications.
