These expectations are increasingly felt in corporate IT departments, where business units demand instant applications and fast services.
Virtualization and cloud computing can help corporate IT meet these demands by bringing more flexibility and agility to the environment.

The forces of digital disruption have empowered consumers and inverted the power relationship between buyers and sellers. Competitive advantages based on manufacturing, distribution, and IT are no longer sustainable. Customer loyalty has all but disappeared; buyers can and will shift their allegiance immediately if disappointed. In the era of the empowered consumer, business success depends upon offering consistently outstanding customer experiences across multiple touchpoints and over the entire customer lifecycle.
Domino’s was heavily reliant on a legacy service desk tool. When Karen Copley was hired to oversee all aspects of service delivery for the organisation, she immediately recognised that this tool needed to be replaced. According to Karen, it offered no way to obtain management information. There was also limited automation capabilities. In addition, at this time, Domino’s wanted to mature its service desk operation by adhering to ITIL® framework best practices. “We decided we needed a more robust, ITIL® framework compliant service desk tool. I knew Cherwell® Service Management software was in the Gartner Magic Quadrant, and I had read good things about the company. I therefore decided to invite Cherwell Software and a couple of other vendors to bid for the business.”

Attracting today’s 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 aren’t always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.
We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time.
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 yesterday’s 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
The ongoing success of 7ticks depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements. To support the torrid growth of data, 7ticks needed to expand the IP/MPLS network connecting its data centers to 40 Gbps—and have an immediate path to 100 Gbps and beyond. Within its data centers, 7ticks needed network and security solutions that would keep pace—and would simplify service management and support automation.
“Our biggest challenge is performance at scale,” says Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and vice president of IT infrastructure at Interactive Data. “IT is our business. The 7ticks infrastructure helps customers get a lower time to market and faster execution speeds at a cost that’s sustainable for their businesses.”
Enterprises often treat information security technology as an insurance policy against the potentially devastating costs of not deploying it. From that perspective, your security technology’s ROI is determined by the time it takes for a breach—one with costs equal to or greater than your investment—to occur. Your ROI could be immediate. Or it could be longer term. With that in mind, it is hard to justify yet another security technology, but a move to the cloud suggests that you should.

Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track.

As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
