Data is the most valuable asset a business has, and the most important data lives on the mainframe. This critical information fuels the new apps and services that differentiate your business.
And it’s rapidly growing, with each new app creating a new source of data. What’s more, usage demands are increasing as developers seek access to mainframe-based data to promote innovation.
With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are
attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously
out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics
to create competitive advantage within their markets, often
focusing on building a thorough understanding of their
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
There is a large gap between understanding how important project management is to a successful product launch and how effective a company may be with its actual execution.

Enterprises tend not to view project management as a holistic process. Much like the disparate systems they have in place, they see a disparate collection of issues.
They typically look to solve specific pain points with single applications. Rather than migrate an entire enterprise to a new system, they are looking to manage a problem spot and have it flow into a specific component (e.g., cost, human capital leverage, or how demand is driven) as needed. In many cases, however, the pain points are symptoms of a larger issue, and to remove them the situation must be viewed in the context of the full project life cycle. Oracle Project Portfolio Management (PPM) Cloud, part of the integrated suite that is Oracle ERP Cloud, not only does this, but it’s also built with the user in mind… solving the PPM pain points through role-based analytics, social collaboration, optimization, costing, control, and mobile solutions for today’s project team.
Whilst the FSI sector races to implement cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and automation, there are no mutually agreed upon set of best practices to implement these technologies. As a result, organisations are using their own blend
of strategic initiatives and company culture to drive innovation, with varying levels of success. To help, this article features advice from five of the leading experts in the FSI and technology sector today.
Several of the most visible tactics to kick-start innovation in FSI organisations include launching innovation or incubation centres, launching hackathons, partnering with or acquiring start-ups, venture investment or simply trying to develop solutions in house. Whilst each of these approaches has potential, there is a risk that organisations fall into the trap of innovation theatre, in other words, failing to effectively integrate cutting edge technology into key business functions.

While ABM is not a new way to strategically market to target accounts, now it is a scalable, achievable strategy that organizations of all sizes can implement to focus on whole lifecycle marketing for key accounts. Marketing, selling to, and supporting your customers at an account-level is not only critical to your success, it’s what your customers expect.
Competitive organizations that are focused on engaging their customers across the entire lifecycle, and throughout their buyer journey, need to sell at an account level, understand the influence of the different contacts and speak directly to them. The ABM we practice today is entirely different than the manual processes of days past. Implementing an ABM strategy no longer means an astronomical investment but it does mean increased revenue, focus, and partnership within your organization.

Today's enterprises support an assortment of end-user devices, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, and, of course, smartphones. Not only do employees use a variety of form factors, but they run a variety of platforms on those devices, including:
Apple iOS and Apple macOS
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms for example, Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Microsoft Windows 10 or anything in between. In addition, IT is being tasked more and more with managing and securing wearables, ruggedized devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Enterprise mobility management suites enable organizations to integrate and manage mobile devices in their IT infrastructures. End-user computing leaders must act amid rapid market changes to reach both short-term and long-term enterprise mobility objectives.
UEM is not limited to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart devices, broadly grouped as part of the IoT, will increasingly become included in UEM. Devices such as Apple TVs, printers and smartwatches are identifiable examples of IoT devices managed by EMM tools. However, not all IoT objects will fall under the realm of EMM tools. Some devices may be managed directly by manufacturers. Other types of devices will have proprietary management tools. And many devices will not need to be managed at all. However, it is clear that the diversity and number of devices will continue to grow, and IT organizations must be ready.
Security from design through deployment.
Mobile devices are now a reality in many organizations. Building on Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM), organizations are increasingly developing their own enterprise apps for specific job tasks to improve productivity, business partnerships, customer satisfaction and bottom-line performance. However, to achieve these benefits, it is imperative that mobile security best practices are incorporated throughout the lifecycle of the application.
In today’s highly digital world, many users and employees are accessing information from multiple devices and from many locations. Enterprise mobile management tools are becoming a must have for most businesses in order to deliver an optimal user experience. The IBM MaaS360 suite allows for a robust app development platform where you can increase portability and interoperability to enable and support every mobile user in your organization.
