Customer service has an opportunity to be a much more strategic weapon for businesses that understand its power. To do this means moving away from what has traditionally been viewed as a back-end operation and cost center to what is now being viewed as a brand-focused profit center. The primary driver of this sea change is engaged and empowered consumers, who want to get the answers to their questions anytime, anywhere, on any device they choose.
The evolving healthcare landscape has created a wealth of fresh opportunities for payers. There is a sense of urgency for payers in leadership roles to leverage technology and successfully transition to a value-driven healthcare system that rewards top performers and high quality standards. Passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) quickly changed many aspects of payers' business with higher costs, new oversight, more competition and a longer-term promise of millions of new members. Since healthcare insurance reform became law, opponents have vowed changes, if not its outright repeal. While it may be tempting to take as little action as possible and hope that the 2010 mid-term election or 2012 general election will make this all go away, the reality is that repeal is not a likely possibility.

The digital, connected world is fundamentally changing the dynamics of the financial services industry. Consumers expect anytime and anywhere access with a customer experience commensurate with the Internet world, while fintech start-ups disrupt established value chains, driving a need to deliver faster innovation. This is creating tremendous pressure on the network, with escalating demands for performance and agility, while cost control and compliance imperatives remain as dominant as ever. This paper looks at optimal strategies for CIOs and CTOs, exploring how the future network needs to evolve to both drive operational effectiveness and enable business change, while assessing key investment and strategic considerations for equipping the network for the digital financial institution.
At the most fundamental level an organization only does two things: operations and changes to operations. Regardless of the industry an organization is part of, or whether it is private or public sector, large or small, there is a constant drive to protect and improve operational aspects.
Whether it is launching a new product or service, decreasing costs, protecting infrastructure from failure or preventing regulatory noncompliance, there are numerous areas where an organization wants to change something about how it operates. That’s where projects come in.
In this whitepaper we look at what causes projects to fail so regularly and offer a sustainable approach for improving performance consistently.
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.

In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.
