Brains, not brawn: Fewer companies than ever before are shackled to the tyranny of the volume play: producing vast quantities of goods to reap razor-thin margins. Instead,
manufacturing has been freed to search for the next big idea – and many of them.
What’s empowering this idea revolution: automated processes, new technologies at the ready, and a thorough understanding of R&D’s costs and contributions?
Realizing that there is strength in numbers, companies are creating virtual innovation hubs with valued partners, joining industry consortia, and opening up product
development to crowdsourcing.
What’s common to all: Companies are drawing closer to epicenters of talent, demand, and supply and moving faster than ever to commercialize great ideas.
Are you ready?

"Spend Management is the planning, process, and system of managing business dollars to positively affect the production of products and services.

Steps to Strategic Spend Management
All CFOs are concerned with how their company is spending its money. However, this is of particular concern for CFOs of small to mid-size businesses who need to manage their cash flow effectively to survive.

If a contact center executive could have anything, it would be certainty… of contact demand, resource availability, operational efficiency, and of agent performance and customer experience delivery. But certainty in a contact center is nearly impossible, and in the absence of a crystal ball, mathematical models provide the next best thing. They alert, evaluate operational risk, and propose business and resourcing solutions. And now, the best of these models also determine expected experience delivery.
With ever increasing pressure to drive higher operating efficiencies, fuel business growth and enhance shareholder value, executives today are rethinking their traditional strategies.

Offshore development has been embraced by the vast majority of commercial software vendors and enterprise application development groups. Why? Because a world flattened by globalization makes it possible to improve competitiveness by taking advantage of the easy exchange of low-cost, high-quality technical skills.
This whitepaper asserts that moving to the next generation of software development and sourcing requires moving from art to science. Given how dependent we are on software as a foundation for every product and service, anything less creates a climate of risk, uncertainty, and unjustifiable costs that undermines our ability to compete in a global marketplace.
