Rising costs, declining reimbursements and the mandate to improve quality: these are key challenges that surgery centers face every day. For years, costs have continued to climb, while reimbursements have declined or, at best, remained stable. To address these issues and succeed in the future, surgery centers need to develop comprehensive plans that leverage both supply chain and clinical expertise. For many facilities, the next step is to conduct a clinical assessment that identifies new ways to improve inventory management and clinical practices. The heart of this approach from Cardinal Health is a clinical team that leverages OR and supply chain expertise to understand, prioritize and pursue opportunities for improving the health of patient and your practice alike. To learn more, read this case study and find out how two surgery centers have used a clinical assessment from Cardinal Health to improve performance.

You’ve made a major investment in Oracle E-Business Suite applications to run your critical enterprise processes. But these processes stretch beyond Oracle E-Business Suite and rely on a mix of custom and packaged applications.
Management of your critical enterprise processes has become a pressing challenge. Too many staff are tied up in managing the process, as well as finding and diagnosing process errors. SLAs are frequently missed, and customers perceive poor quality of service due to the recurring errors and delays, which are now impacting your critical processes, such as financial period end close, invoicing, payroll and materials requirements planning (MRP) processing. You’ve decided it’s time to consider automation.
Automating Oracle E-Business Suite processes end-to-end can eliminate 90% of business process errors. Download this whitepaper to find out how.

We all know that hybrid cloud adoption is exploding, with 80% of enterprises having at least some infrastructure in the cloud. This growth includes increased use of the internet to deliver applications, sites and services to employees, partners and customers. These companies need an internet performance management (IPM) strategy to ensure those services reach users effectively, starting with DNS.
Join Trip Kucera and Dyn VP, Gary Sloper, as they discuss the impact of cloud and internet infrastructure across the cloud adoption lifecycle. Key focus points include:
• Optimizing round trip times and latency, from time to first byte, to internet routing
• Understanding and comparing cloud service providers
• Protecting your service from route hijacks, DDoS attacks and mitigating vulnerabilities.
Watch this short Video Webinar and learn how focusing on the DNS layer can help you plan, migrate and optimize your way to cloud success!
The more you invest in an internet hybrid infrastructure, the more exposed you can be to internet events. At the internet infrastructure layer, this can mean unavailable destinations, poor performing paths and security events such as DDoS attacks. The fact is that there are thousands of internet events that happen every day and when it comes to DDoS attacks 97% of them happen at the infrastructure layer. You shouldn't rely on a single DNS service to protect you from all of these potential problems. Just like everything else in your IT architecture you should always have a backup plan.
How you implement a redundant DNS architecture is not a given. Watch this informative webinar and learn about different ways you can get the benefits of a hardened internet infrastructure layer that fits your existing and planned online architecture. Get insights and examples from our DNS experts on different key approaches.
The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.
Read the white paper to learn how to put a plan in place for full functional validation, and get details on the importance of validating resiliency in a live environment; learn why small-scale recovery “simulations” are inadequate and misleading.
For a network that better supports your cloud and brings the most value possible to your business, its design has to be considered in the early stages of cloud planning. Read the white paper "Networking for cloud computing" to discover specific networking considerations for public, private and hybrid clouds.
Users expect quick, consistent access to their business-critical data and applications around the clock. That’s why outages, whether they are planned or unplanned, can negatively affect revenue, consumer trust and your reputation.
This white paper describes the pervasive lack of resiliency planning in most cloud implementations today and discusses how better up-front assessment and planning can help organizations realize the enormous potential cloud offers for improved, more agile resiliency.
Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm
the business managers who must sift through it all to
glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize
profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into
new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship
management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM),
business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data
environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected,
“dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of
disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to
deliver the desired single view of the business.
To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and
stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety,
volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from
an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all
their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as
possible to maximize
For data-driven businesses, cloud can be a boon. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without an investment in local hardware infrastructure, but what does that mean to information trust and governance? When data comes from cloud-based sources, IT needs a plan for data integration and security.
Download this insightful white paper and learn the four key priorities you must consider when developing your IT strategy to promote good hybrid information governance. Learn the blend of process, organizational and technical enablers that will allow you to move to a hybrid environment with speed and confidence.

Ohne eine angemessene IT-Unterstützung lässt sich eine werttreiberbasierte Planung nicht umsetzen. Die Auswahl der passenden Software ist mindestens genauso wichtig wie die Identifikation der geschäftsspezifischen Werttreiber und die Konzipierung eines werttreiberbasierten Planungsmodells. Insbesondere Softwarelösungen, die bereits branchenspezifische Werttreiberbäume hinterlegt haben, bieten für Unternehmen große Vorteile. Gleichzeitig ist auf die Usability und eine hohe Flexibilität mit einfacher Anpassungsfähigkeit zu achten, die ohne umfangreichen Customizing-Aufwand realisiert werden kann.

It’s all too easy for CIOs and technology management to build a strategy around any new technology area that is focused on delivering lower technology costs and greater operational efficiency. However, to get your cloud strategy right, you have to learn to move away from measuring the success of change against technology management care-abouts and focus on the priorities of the business. Forrester’s Business Technographics® surveys show a stark disconnect between technology management’s and the business’ desired outcomes from cloud computing; embracing the shift to cloud services means driving and measuring its success against metrics defined by the business before those of IT. This report outlines the strategic plan of Forrester’s solution for CIOs working on cloud computing. This report is designed to help you onboard the business to your cloud strategy.
