Fact: In the next three years, 53% of CFOs estimate that over half of their enterprise transactions will be delivered through the cloud, up from the 12 percent who use that delivery mechanism today. In addition to non-core business processes like project management and email, strategic CFOs are also starting to embrace the cloud to deliver core ERP processes, including financial management, human capital management, and procurement. Rather than view the cloud just as a cost-saving platform, they recognize the strategic benefits that the cloud delivers to get critical growth initiatives up and running quickly, whether that’s using the cloud to quickly upgrade to a new application, or delivering new mobile or analytical capabilities to employees.
As the oil and gas pipeline industry grapples with change at every level — including increasing pipeline operations and expanding regulatory oversight infrastructure —cost savings and operating efficiencies have become more important than ever. Both pipeline operators and contractors can benefit from utilizing EPPM solutions to help them pinpoint the best strategies to develop and implement projects from conception through execution to end game — thereby helping to reduce risk and manage cost. In the end, it’s all about smartly using an approach, such as EPPM solutions, like those from Oracle, to help pipeline operators and contractors reduce costs at the project, portfolio, and enterprise levels through the project lifecycle. The midstream companies that are able to implement the best approach to managing risk to their operations in the most cost - effective way will be the ones to best weather another tumultuous decade to come for the oil and gas industry.
Breaking the link between access devices and virtual desktops (VDI) in a data center provides numerous benefits including cost efficiency and access transparency regardless of a user’s physical location. However, as more organizations move away from a physical desktop to VDI, they must decide whether they should build it themselves or purchase an all-in-one cloud service.
This white paper highlights the benefits of using a managed desktop cloud service that provides infrastructural support while reducing infrastructure and operational costs.

Today as customers increasingly turn to digital channels to research products, shop and purchase--and as employees arrive in the workplace conditioned by engaging consumer Web mobile and social experiences-- organizations can't afford to be left behind because of legacy investments. Customers and employees alike expect an exceptional digital experience. The good news as our TCO study shows is that most organizations can justify the cost of IBM Exceptional Digital Experience solutions based on quantifiable savings within a short period of time.
ERP has become much more affordable in recent years, and while many believe ERP to be out of reach for SMBs, Aberdeen research shows a well-managed ERP implementation can be a continuing source of cost savings and operational improvements which help companies grow and thrive.
Whether your enterprise is on a journey of cloud transformation or you simply need to do more with less, moving backup to the cloud offers unprecedented cost savings.

There is little doubt that Multi Function Peripherals (MFP) offer businesses of all sizes significant benefits: they combine printing, scanning, copying and fax functions in one machine and deliver considerable cost and space savings. They also address some very important business process, management and legal issues faced by virtually every business. Within this discussion document we concentrate on the fax element and look specifically at the integration of MFPs with network fax run through a fax server such as Lane’s Passport Fax Server.
“If we had done anything differently in Washington state, we would have done it faster,” said Hammersburg. “The key message is that fraud prevention – dealing with risk and program integrity – is not a cost issue, it’s a saving. When you can truly quantify the
positive impact to the bottom line of a company or government agency, you shift the recognition that this is not an expense but that it’s a saving.”
Some government organizations may be concerned that a rigorous program to shine a light on the underground economy will shine a brighter light on how much they didn’t know until now. Don’t let that stop you, said Hammersburg. “You have the opportunity
to really get ahead of it now. Turn a risk into an opportunity going forward.”
Standardized, scalable, pre-assembled, and integrated data center facility power and cooling modules provide a “total cost of ownership” (TCO) savings of 30% compared to traditional, built-out data center power and cooling infrastructure. Avoiding overbuilt capacity and scaling the design over time contributes to a significant percentage of the overall savings. This white paper provides a quantitative TCO analysis of the two architectures, and illustrates the key drivers of both the capex and opex savings of the improved architecture.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices. This white paper describes the types of PM services that can help safeguard the uptime of data centers and IT equipment rooms. Various PM methodologies and approaches are discussed. Recommended practices are suggested.
In 2001, the international research group, Gartner released a briefing paper titled 'Rightsizing Output Fleets – The Hidden Gold Mine'. This research paper identified total print costs to be as much as 1-3% of an organization's revenue, a figure far higher than anyone had previously suggested. Gartner argued that print costs are so high they offer a 'goldmine' for any procurement or IT manager looking for savings.
