"The mandate for procurement organizations is clear – cost reduction alone no longer ensures success; creating value is equally important. How was Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield able to achieve their desired future state? In this webinar, we will discuss:
• Why procurement needs a strategic makeover, the current adoption of emerging technologies by procurement, and the challenges faced by procurement exec
Whenever personal data related to us is anonymized, it has been manipulated in such a way that it can no longer be linked back to us, right? Think again. In the digital era, we do not always blend into the crowd.
Location data is part of this equation because our mobility habits are unique to us. Techniques like anonymization offer service providers numerous ways to protect privacy while retaining enough data to be useful - the challenge is finding the right balance.
By reading this eBook, you’ll discover critical ways public and private organizations can help protect users’ privacy:
• Find out why de-identification does not always mean anonymity
• Understand how privacy by design can be used for standards and product or service creation
• Discover how gathering just data you need will minimize the privacy impact of collection
• Find out about new and emerging privacy-enhancing technologies
• Simplify business process modeling: Quickly build processes in a straightforward cloud-based interface designed for both IT and business users
• Improve process efficiency and accuracy: A central process repository eliminates version control and consistency issues by providing users real-time access to process workflows
• Enhance cross-team collaboration: A shared team workspace engages all business process owners, encouraging cross-team participation and continuous process improvement

Whether you’re looking
to implement your first
System (LMS) or move
from a legacy system, this guide to
evaluating different LMSs will support you
in your journey towards a simpler and
more connected learning experience.
While it’s important that you know exactly
what you need from an LMS, this is also
an opportunity to think laterally, question
your processes, and introduce some new
ideas or ways of working.
A good LMS will put your business in
a stronger position by enabling course
designers and trainers to innovate,
support organisations in maximising return
on their investment and help students to
succeed and complete courses.
Research shows that legacy ERP 1.0 systems were not designed for usability and insight. More than three quarters of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans 1. These systems lack modern best-practice capabilities needed to compete and grow. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”.
Oracle’s goal is to help you navigate your own journey to modernization by sharing the knowledge we’ve gained working with many thousands of customers using both legacy and modern ERP systems. To that end, we’ve crafted this handbook outlining the fundamental characteristics that define modern ERP.
What do Cristiano Ronaldo and Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson have in common – besides outrageous abs that is?! They are both bona fide superstars. They both made Forbes’ top 10 highest paid celebrities list for 2018, have millions of followers on social media, and are known the world over.
Right now, consumers are driving two seemingly opposing trends: Accenture calls the first trend ‘From Me to We.’ As people grasp the importance of sustainable living, they are shifting from a purely selfish focus (give me what I want) towards actively pushing brands to become more responsible for their global footprint and the health of our planet (support the ideals we believe in).1
While having the right tech is key to delivering great experiences, an equally important part of the equation is having the right people, processes and org structures.
WHY SHOULD THE TARGET AUDIENCE CARE?
Getting value from MarTech investments is top of mind for Marketing Professionals worldwide, and the number one impediment to value realization is the fact that their organizations are not properly set up to fully utlize the tools at their disposal in an effective way. Getting the “people” side of the equation right can be make all the difference in pulling ahead from competitors that are still figuring it out.
Three best practices to design your org for successful experience delivery:
Cultivate the right skills and find the right talent for customer obsession
Set up org structures that encourage cross channel collaboration
Embrace the possibility of using external support to address the challenges of change management
To achieve personalization at scale, brands need to develop a better understanding of each customer they interact with, and that’s all about combining all the data they collect from every available source into a single cohesive customer view. There is no way they can handle this task or manage all this data manually, which is why data management platforms (DMPs) rose to prominence. Today, companies are looking to build on this single customer view with a real-time understanding of their audience across every digital channel, marking the next phase on the maturity ramp for DMPs.

As ride-hailing, e-commerce and food delivery services continue to grow, the value of curbside space is increasingly apparent. Though valuable and potentially lucrative, its original design is failing to live up to the needs of today's society. The demand for curbside space is growing, but the asset itself is fixed.
To reduce urban congestion, ensure optimal roadway performance management, encourage new mobility solutions and facilitate on-demand delivery efficiency, it is vital that the curb be better utilized.
In this eBook, gain insight from six visionaries and thought leaders with a stake in the landscape of urban mobility as they share how to better optimize curbside space.

In this paper, we provide an overview of the Two Sigma Factor Lens, designed for
analyzing multi-asset portfolios and derived from returns of broad, liquid asset class
proxy indexes. This lens is intended to be:
• Holistic, by capturing the large majority of cross-sectional and
time-series risk for typical institutional portfolios;
• Parsimonious, by using as few factors as possible;
• Orthogonal, with each risk factor capturing a statistically
uncorrelated risk across assets;
• Actionable, such that desired changes to factor exposure can
be readily translated into asset allocation changes.
Finally, we discuss methods for constructing and assessing the Two Sigma Factor
Lens that can be extended to produce additional risk factors for new sub-assetclasses
or cross-sectional risks that may not currently be captured by the lens.1
This factor lens, and our ongoing work to expand it, form the foundations of the
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites: consider the local culture and the people, prioritize basic needs and requests, work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments, and consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system. A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovation, and su
This paper examines how cities are using cloud technology to address public challenges, using the framework of the global coalition, Smart Cities Council. This framework promotes three core values for smart cities: livability, providing clean, healthy living conditions without pollution and congestion; workability, providing an enabling infrastructure (energy, transportation, internet connectivity) and high-quality jobs; and sustainability, doing so at no cost to future generations, as the Council puts it. This paper proposes a fourth core value, inclusivity: provisioning services to all city residents regardless of their background.
Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation. The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology.
Innovation requires many ingredients: a great idea, creativity, persistence, the right data, and technology. Governments around the world are taking advantage of the cloud to reduce cost and transform the way they deliver on their mission. The expectations of an increasingly digital citizenry are high, yet all levels of government face budgetary and human resource constraints. Cloud computing (on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing) can help government organizations increase innovation, agility, and resiliency, all while reducing costs. This whitepaper provides guidelines that governments can use to break down innovation barriers and achieve a digital transformation that helps them engage and serve citizens.
