The sponsor named below commissioned Ardent Partners to write this report. While the report topic In 2015, collaboration is the name of the game in procurement and frequently entails working with key internal stakeholders (like line-of-business managers and legal departments) or preferred suppliers to drive greater value through sourcing and procurement. For Chief Procurement Officers ("CPOs") and other supply management leaders, collaboration has taken on many new and innovative forms over the years, causing these executives to leverage new (and, in some cases, existing) processes, relationships, and technologies to enhance compliance, decrease risk, and increase savings. One such business process, contract management, has been reborn with digital, automated features that can shift the way procurement teams collaborate, mitigate risk, drive performance, and realize greater savings for the enterprise.
Identity and access management exists for one critical reason—security. Organizations need to make certain the right people have access to the right resources to do their jobs—and that people without proper authorization can’t get in. In an era the IBM X-Force security team recently described as experiencing “an ever-upward trend of more attacks, more leaked records and more varied threats,” security is a critical function for business as well as IT.
Technology has had a truly transformative impact on the healthcare space. Thanks to innovations in technology, tools and their respective processes, the practice of treating patients has shifted from mostly reactive to proactive, enabling physicians and caregivers to approach healthcare in a more holistic fashion.
As part of that shift, hospitals, wellness centers and physicians’ offices are focusing on providing value over volume1, taking healthcare beyond the four walls of the facility and into patients’ homes, places of work and social centers. The concept of whole health is much easier to attain with technology such as artificial intelligence, analytics, wearables and mobile health (mHealth) apps, to name a few.

Communities rely on their local policemen and policewomen to keep them safe, protect their property and preserve the peace. But few citizens really understand the dangers that officers face every day, especially patrolling and answering calls in vehicles or on foot. While their training provides them with tactics and procedures, situations and individuals are unpredictable. Devices such as computers and tablets make these tactics possible.
From accidents to health emergencies, domestic violence to theft and assaults, police must perform in high-stress, volatile environments and make the right decisions in seconds. And in today’s digital world, everything they do may be recorded and posted online.

Forrester Consulting was commissioned to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Cylance's advanced threat protection solution, CylancePROTECT®, and its deployment and configuration services, ThreatZero™. The study aims to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero on their organizations, which will improve customer success with advanced cybersecurity and antivirus protection solutions. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an investment in Cylance, Forrester interviewed the Chief Information Security Officer for a Large State County Government, who has used the solutions for over a year. Cylance provides a new-generation, predictive, cybersecurity, and malware prevention solution that leverages artificial intelligence to prevent malware from executing on endpoints in real time. This is usually implemented with ThreatZero, which is a continuous professional service program rendered by Cylance for users of CylancePROTECT. ThreatZero guides through the planning, implementation, integration, and ongoing optimization of the solution. This often includes end user education, training, and support to totally eliminate endpoint threats and incidents. With CylancePROTECT and ThreatZero, the organization was able to reduce security breaches to almost zero, catching malware before it ever gained access to public records. Relative to their previous endpoint protection, this significantly reduced costs from remediation/reimaging and incidence response. Additionally, IT and security employees’ productivity were boosted.

Create a transformation vision and an integrated technology roadmap to get started towards your goals.
As digital complexity increases, you’ve probably spent a lot of time making sure your customer-facing strategies and technologies are ready to meet the next challenge. And rightly so.
But what about your internal functions? Are your ERP, finance, HR, procurement and supply chain strategies ready? You may be asking some hard questions:
• How do I manage a large-scale transformation of my back office underpinned with the right technologies?
• Is my technology strategy truly aligned to meet my business goals?
• What are other organizations doing to make the transition?

The leadership of a new, marquee pharma
manufacturer approached KPMG with a paradox: It was
certainly marquee, but not new. As the highly publicized
spin-off of a global health services conglomerate, the
company began life with $18 billion in annual revenues,
an established product pipeline and instant
membership in the S&P 100. Reliant on the back-office
functions of its parent, it needed to quickly acquire the
back-office sinews of a truly stand-alone company: ERP
systems and core processes for finance, operations
and human resources.
During an intensive three-year engagement, KPMG
brought the vision of the company’s leaders to life,
working towards a target operating model through the
disciplined implementation of new systems, processes,
training and staffing. The multidisciplinary approach
eventually touched the lives of every one of the
company’s 21,000 employees, in 170 countries.
And as KPMG’s delivered tangible results, something
intangible emerged – a new company culture,
Our client's critical back office systems hadn't kept pace with it's aggressive growth. The software had been customized over the years and had become costly and complex to operate.
We know how to get things done.

To manage this growing technology and business complexity, modern ERP is a must for distributors.
It’s needed due to:
• A need for multiple sales channels, both offline and digital
• Ever-growing product portfolios, including offerings that may be customized, complex or bundled
• The addition of value-added services, which could include assembly and labelling
• Pricing, rebates and the addition of incentives that could drive profitability
• Calculation and demand complexity, which increases the need for customer segmentation
Modern ERP is the driver of digital transformation for a distribution business. It can provide streamlined processes, centralize back office functions, allow new service offerings, and help in understanding profitability.
• There are many opportunities for businesses to introduce the concept of paper-free or less intensive paper processes to their organizations. AIIM 2016 Industry Watch research found that “58% of respondents described their inbound handling of content as ad-hoc”. This is not surprising given paper is still fairly dominant in many businesses due to human desire to keep paper in hand for reading, note taking, and still today, signatures.
• In this study we take a look the challenges businesses face in relation to:
o Digital Transformation of their business operations
o Capturing and managing multi-channel inbound content, including paper
o Steps taken to automate the information capture process
o Use of analytics to enhance the identification and classification of capture information
o A look ahead at the next 5 years to understand where businesses are focusing their efforts and funding
Last week, SAP Ariba held a human trafficking roundtable event at its SAP Hudson Yards New York City
offices. The roundtable focused on the United Nations Global Compact that adopted 17 sustainable
development goals for its 2030 agenda two years ago. While most individuals and businesses believe
slavery was abolished years ago, there are currently over 40 million forced laborers worldwide. The
United Nations Global Compact initiative is assisting in highlighting the problem of modern slavery,
forced labor, and noncompliance with human rights. And this initiative lines up quite well with
procurement and global supply chains.
