The success of every business is driven by the quality of its connections, whether with clients, employees, investors, suppliers, manufacturers or other key stakeholders. Increasingly, these relationships are measured through data-driven analytics, enhanced through video communication, and empowered through cloud computing and collaboration. As the volume of data grows, so do bandwidth requirements.
Reconstructing resource management tools to simplify tasks, drive collaboration and facilitate action.
People who use technologies at home expect the same ease of use and intuitiveness for the tools they use in the workplace. But enterprise tools aren’t keeping up with the pace of change. Many product and portfolio management (PPM) solutions force resource managers to create entire workflows or navigate through multiple screens just to see the fundamental component of resource management—what their people are working on.
Resource managers also cite shortcomings such as no simple way to perform everyday tasks, communicate in context with others, drill down into key information, narrow the field of resources and forecast financials and model outcomes.
Today’s organizations are challenged to be the first to market with ‘The Next Big Thing’. They must innovate with new and unique services to satisfy customer demands and differentiate themselves in the marketplace. Software drives that innovation and has turned every organization into a software organization.

7 critical factors for developing an integrated business process that drives collaboration and unied focus across multiple divisions and departments to align operational planning with financial planning.
Enterprises that depend heavily on IT to deliver services to customers are constantly driven by market pressures to better develop and release new software features to meet growing demands. Facilitating the collaboration between development and IT operations and bringing application to market faster with high quality are crucial to today’s business success.
This solution brief provides insights into the DevOps movement, why it matters and how you can cross the chasm to achieve better collaboration to deliver business value rapidly. You’ll learn how CA Technologies solutions for DevOps bring your portfolio of IT technology forward in a cadence of faster, more predictable releases, letting you confirm the results of each phase of the software life cycle toward positive business outcomes.
DevOps helps drive continuous collaboration with the end-customer, gaining further visibility into online and mobile application usage and its effect on the brick-and-mortar experience. The data your company can derive from this collaboration should be used to continuously validate assumptions made earlier in the development process.
Today’s empowered consumers have high expectations for the companies they do business with. They expect real-time communication, instant information, and the ability to connect in multiple ways. And they want it to be simple. A DevOps approach can help to accomplish this.
Enterprises tend not to view project management as a holistic process. Much like the disparate systems they have in place, they see a disparate collection of issues.
They typically look to solve specific pain points with single applications. Rather than migrate an entire enterprise to a new system, they are looking to manage a problem spot and have it flow into a specific component (e.g., cost, human capital leverage, or how demand is driven) as needed. In many cases, however, the pain points are symptoms of a larger issue, and to remove them the situation must be viewed in the context of the full project life cycle. Oracle Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Cloud, part of the integrated suite that is Oracle ERP Cloud, not only does this, but it’s also built with the user in mind… solving the PPM pain points through role-based analytics, social collaboration, optimization, costing, control, and mobile solutions for today’s project team.
The market for communications is shifting to one in which multi-modal interactions will become the norm.

Moreover, the convergence of content types under UCC will be greatly enhanced by a categorized and dynamic ontology-driven knowledge framework that goes beyond search. Once the framework supports are in place, UCC will accelerate its momentum at an even greater rate than it already is today. This Research Note identifies the new elements of UCC and how enterprises can plan for the shift to multi-modal communications.

The increased mobility of the workforce is changing the way we work. Business users want the flexibility to share and collaborate on content that drives their business while IT needs to ensure the security of that data, no matter where it goes.

One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.

IT Teams are reporting satisfaction with their organisation’s performance, but the gaps between their aspirations to drive innovation and thei ractions to see it through tell a different story.
Across the organisation, respondents are not clear which department owns innovation. On top of that, the organisation is burdened by too many projects, which creates a conflict between quality and quantity. As a result, globally and across all lines of business, the majority of innovation projects do not make it to market.
This problem is exacerbated by a lack of collaboration and clear leadership. Fortunately, organisations are placing value on the customer experience, thereby helping to move the business forward. Unfortunately, this momentum is hindered by the lack of priority that the organisation places on talent.
Overall, organisations are generating ideas but struggling to execute them due to poor process and lack of focus. As a result, there is a big gap between ambition and ability, a

Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including
