This paper introduces the practice of Model Management, an organizational capability to develop and deliver models that create a competitive advantage. Today, the best-run companies run their business on models, and those that don’t face existential threat. The paper explains why companies that fail to run on models are falling for the Model Myth—the assumption that models can be managed like software or data. Models are different and need a new organizational capability: Model Management.

Risk-averse distributors may feel that the safest and simplest IT strategy is to stay with their existing "homegrown" enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. But just as sticking your money under the mattress offers no protection against inflation, maintaining an outdated system can rob you of a distinct competitive advantage. Modern ERP systems offer so much more in terms of data access, technology advances, and standard operating procedures. And obtaining a solution from a leading ERP provider ensures that industry best practices and the experiences of other distributors and end users have been built in. Check out this new paper and learn more about the advantages of an integrated ERP over your homegrown system.

Business is changing fast. Even companies that believe they have a competitive edge today are at risk of falling behind. Information Technology (IT) keeps businesses booming, but it’s a stretch for busy executives to drop into the data center to ensure that server racks and network boxes are humming. Leadership is preoccupied with growing the customer base, keeping costs down, profitability and growth. At a time when disruptive products and services are the name of the game, it’s become clear that doing “enough” with your technology investment simply isn’t enough to survive.

Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.

Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.

Exceptional customer service is a competitive differentiator. Providing consistent service that is tailored to the individual across a variety of digital channels can help organizations deliver personalized experiences that exceed the expectations of today’s digital savvy consumers. Yet, many organizations fail to deliver real-time relevance in their service experiences because critical customer data is siloed in different systems (CRM, ticketing, etc.) across the enterprise, making it difficult to understand the full customer journey and their needs at that point in time. We partnered with IDG Research to survey top-performing customer service organizations to determine the challenges they face, and, more importantly, their plans for driving better outcomes. One thing is clear: taking a strategic approach to future investments can help organizations meet their customer service objectives and deliver on customer expectations.

The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated to new heights, commanding the attention of CEOs across all industries. According to research recently published by McKinsey, more than three-quarters of Fortune 500 CEOs do not believe their companies are effective at attracting highly talented people. Of those CEOs who do consider their companies successful at attracting top talent, only 7% believe they are effective in retaining them. In today’s hyperconnected labor market, recruitment and retention are not separate problems; they are two sides of the same coin. Companies that have adopted integrated strategies for recruitment and retention have a significant competitive advantage. But according to McKinsey’s data, this group represents only a small fraction of the Fortune 500. The rest of the HR universe is under tremendous

Business Enterprises today need to become more agile, meet new and increasing workload and security requirements, while reducing overall IT cost and risk. To meet these requirements many companies are turning to cloud computing. To remain competitive companies need to formulate a strategy that can easily move them from traditional on-premises IT to private or public clouds. A complete cloud strategy will likely include both private and public clouds because some applications and data might not be able to move to a public cloud. Moving to the cloud should not create information silos but should improve data sharing. Any cloud strategy should make sure that it is possible to integrate on-premises, private cloud and public cloud data and applications. Furthermore, any on-premises cloud deployments must be able to easily migrate to public cloud in the future

With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

With an ever-growing array of customer interactions, especially digital, businesses are rapidly looking to gain competitive advantage by using data and insights at scale to create and activate 360-degree profiles of their customers to deliver a better experience. In a rush to accelerate digital growth and improve their business strategies, many global enterprises have built soiled, redundant technology environments, resulting in inaccurate, or worse, conflicting views of their customer's brand interactions. For example, Forrester's research reveals that 90% of enterprises use multiple analytics tools.

Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage. Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%
