Nearly every business person regardless of their role – be it marketer, salesperson, consultant, engineer, or business owner – has acquired a second responsibility: project manager. In their desire to move quickly and keep costs low, many of these business people turn to the ubiquitous spreadsheet for help. Using a spreadsheet to track, update, and consolidate project information means spending valuable time on project administration – sending, receiving, and finding e-mails; cutting, pasting, consolidating, and reporting information; and reformatting, saving, and e-mailing spreadsheets.

As global employment prospects lag behind a slow economic recovery, customers in many parts of the world are more cautious and better informed than ever. They have access to a wealth of information about the products and services they seek, much of it obtained from trusted sources almost immediately. Yet businesses have moved slowly to exploit emerging technologies and information sources like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. As a result, customers often seem better informed about the products and services they buy than companies are about their customers. This imbalance presents a big challenge to companies struggling to avoid commoditisation and it could grow into a competitive disadvantage as customers demand more personalized service.

In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs.
One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development.
This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.

Manufacturing and product companies are facing critical challenges. To survive in the new global economy, companies need to continuously reinvent themselves. They need to rapidly
add new products and acquire new businesses. They need to build new partnerships and channels. They canít depend on the same set of suppliers tomorrow that they do today. And they canít expect to do business the same way in new and emerging markets.

to succeed: greater operational agility, the ability to collaborate and continuous visibility.

Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterdayís sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now.
Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data can now be processed in memory,
and more significantly, analyzed as it arrives, in real time. Millions to hundreds of millions of events (such as video streams or application alerts) can be collected and analyzed per hour to deliver insights that can be acted upon in an instant. From financial services to manufacturing, this rev

This explosion in the amount of information is similar to the boom the marketing world saw in the early 2000ís with the introduction of customer data. Now that recruiters finally have access to the same types of information as marketers, itís becoming more clear that recruiting is marketing. Whereas the marketing world immediately saw the value in this data and latched onto technologies that could leverage the information, the recruiting world is just catching up. The proliferation of CRMs has revolutionized marketing and business development. Creating and maintaining relationships has always been part of a sound business strategy, but that nebulous process has now been operationalized through software like Salesforce. There is a reason the CRM software market has boomed to over $20 billion...it works. Personalizing the process to maintain constant contact and build relationships has been shown to be extremely effective in converting leads to sales.

Attracting todayís savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions arenít always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process.
