Today's IT organizations are faced with the daunting task of optimizing all aspects of their departments, including people, processes and technology. Optimizing and streamlining server utilization through virtualization represents one particularly exciting example. We found that one of the most popular usage models for virtualization is to drive down server procurements in development, test and production environments. When this model is followed, future server purchases are avoided; instead, new workloads are established on existing systems.
IT departments must contend with an array of devices, operating systems and cellular carriers as well as new security threats. Even if IT departments can get a handle on the complex mobility landscape, the technology is so fluid that the picture is constantly changing. That means the IT staff has to devote time to learning about, procuring, deploying and supporting an array of devices. Busy IT departments now have another option for addressing these challenges: a monthly subscription package that provides a customizable web-based portal to automate mobile device procurement, expense management and support.

Fact: In the next three years, 53% of CFOs estimate that over half of their enterprise transactions will be delivered through the cloud, up from the 12 percent who use that delivery mechanism today. In addition to non-core business processes like project management and email, strategic CFOs are also starting to embrace the cloud to deliver core ERP processes, including financial management, human capital management, and procurement. Rather than view the cloud just as a cost-saving platform, they recognize the strategic benefits that the cloud delivers to get critical growth initiatives up and running quickly, whether that’s using the cloud to quickly upgrade to a new application, or delivering new mobile or analytical capabilities to employees.
