The current business environment is still characterized by skittishness, tenuous demand and sporadic growth. It’s no surprise then, that 60% of CFOs plan to make major changes to critical finance practices and processes, according to the 2010 IBM Global CFO Study. In fact, 70% of CFOs claim to be taking a more prominent role in enterprise decision making beyond the traditional role of finance. Yet many CFOs admit to significant gaps in their ability to deliver on this expanded agenda, particularly in their ability to measure and monitor business performance. The IBM study found that those companies that invest in capabilities to expand their business insight are better able to anticipate and react to the unpredictable external forces affecting the economy.

The 2012 IBM Global CEO study found today’s business leaders rank technology as the most important external force that will impact their organizations. A new IBV software development study supports this, with IT and business leaders identifying five top technology trends critical to competitiveness. However, the same survey reveals that most organizations are not prepared to take advantage of these trends. While management recognizes that software is crucial to capitalizing on technology for competitiveness, they are not successfully executing. Join this webcast to learn how organizations that leverage effective software development can help close the execution gap and gain competitive advantage.

Today’s economy is widely characterized by skittishness and uncertainty about the future. The effect that unpredictable external forces can have on the economy can leave many business leaders feeling helpless. This fact was demonstrated in the IBM Global CFO Study, where many CFOs admitted that they lacked the ability to measure and monitor business performance effectively. The same study also found that the companies who invested in their business insight capabilities were better able to anticipate and react to external economic forces. IBM Cognos software can provide businesses with the business insight they need to be prepared, not scared. Cognos software allows businesses to analyze performance, model business strategies and processes, and contribute to a common set of business objectives.

The insights provided by more than 700 Chief Human Resource Officers around the world show how workforce investment is shifting. Companies are beginning to focus more on growth, expanding into new markets and offering new products and services. But to make the most of potential growth opportunities in today’s dynamic global marketplace, organizations need to find ways to address the “borders” that are currently impeding their workforces. Based on the key capability gaps revealed in this study, we believe organizations should focus on three critical workforce imperatives: cultivating creative leaders, mobilizing for speed and flexibility and capitalizing on collective intelligence.

Business executives and managers at business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care about time, money, competitive advantage, customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much attention to the vital IT infrastructure that supports transactions and collaboration with trading partners—though that B2B backbone directly affects performance and profitability. In fact, just 26 percent of business managers view B2B integration as a competitive differentiator, according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne, a research consultancy. As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on complex, brittle and antiquated systems to exchange critical data impacts time to market, cost-efficiency and satisfaction across suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of B2B integration in recent years has moved forward in fits and starts, often undermined by competing priorities and misalignment between business and IT managers.
