This paper looks at the critical connection between data analytics and the future of tax compliance. It shows how the ability to pinpoint the “right” cases can bring more efficiency—and more revenue—to tax agencies. It also confirms that tax agencies already have vital data at their fingertips; the challenge is to find new and better ways to put it to use. Finally, it describes how a cohesive compliance strategy demands an agile, balanced solution of people, processes, technology, and data.

There is no doubt that enterprise cloud is a new and improved IT strategy. Cloud services have proven to improve organizational agility and reduce the burden of IT infrastructure and cost. Moving to the cloud is no longer a question of “if” but “when” and “how.” Most enterprises we interviewed are moving to cloud in phases over time and matching workloads to their perceptions of a vendor’s cloud capabilities that will best support their objectives. Many will require the ability and flexibility to support multivendor cloud and multiple deployment choices (e.g., public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud).
To compete in today’s world, business
leaders are placing increased demands
on IT. Unfortunately, many IT

must digitally transform the enterprise

Today, IT leaders address the PC lifecycle across a continuum from control to transformation. Control is geared to optimization, while transformation focuses on the business impact of technology. Though the two approaches differ, they are not in opposition. They strive for the same goals and face similar challenges. As IT leaders provide their workforce with the tools to carry out the corporate mission, they should develop a PC lifecycle strategy that encompasses the key organizational needs of systems management, end-user productivity, business innovation and data-centric security. Read this Dell whitepaper to learn more about the findings of a recent Forrester Consulting study, “Digital Transformers Innovate, Digital Controllers Optimize”. This paper will help clarify the PC lifecycle continuum, from the basics of control to the advanced levels of transformation, so you will be better equipped to determine the needs of your organization on that spectrum.
In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.
