However, when comparing the total cost of ownership associated with providing basic services, software, management and support, the outcome (surprising to some) favors Mac over PC. But how can this b

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.

Delivering the best possible care to every patient is a complex, interconnected process that involves every department in a healthcare facility. From the moment a patient enters a facility, a wide range of activities must be performed by many different employees from different functional areas — in a timely and efficient way—to ensure the best possible outcome, including performing tests, collecting specimens, administering medications and delivering treatments. Each one of these activities must be coordinated and documented as part of an overall care plan. But the first step is making sure clinicians are treating the right patient—in the right way—every time.
Zebra’s white paper explores the critical impact positive patient identification (PPID) has on patient safety throughout the administrative, diagnostic and treatment phases of a patient’s stay. The paper also explores how PPID can improve staff efficiency and help healthcare organizations meet the needs of changing patient dem

The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) is a public research university and one of the 10 campuses of the University of California system. Its secondary storage was a combination of multiple point solutions. The UI/setup and maintenance was complex. Maintaining multiple licensing and maintenance agreements negatively impacted the administrative cost. The skyrocketing cost for additional backup capacity limited the team’s ability to expand their backup protection to many critical systems. With Cohesity's unified hyperconverged secondary storage platform, the IT team provided a single solution for all 13 departments to consolidate their backups on one platform, and scale-out as required. Read the case study and get details on how UCSB consolidated everything from backup to recovery, analytics to

There’s an alarming digital divide within many companies. Marketers are developing nimble software to give customers an engaging, personalized experience, while IT departments remain focused on the legacy infrastructure. The front and back ends aren’t working together, resulting in appealing websites and apps that don’t quite deliver.
We’ve arrived at this misalignment for understandable reasons. Previously, most chief information officers (CIOs) were hired to digitize and bring order to companies’ internal systems and processes. They saw websites as marketing channels and were happy to let chief marketing officers (CMOs) oversee that province of technology. They had, and still have, plenty to do just to keep internal operations running smoothly. Marketers soon got into the habit of developing not just content, but also software programs to better reach and transact with customers. But now that websites and apps are becoming cornerstones of the business, the stakes are too high to al
One of the biggest challenges IT ops teams face is the lack of visibility across its infrastructure — physical, virtual and in the cloud. Making things even more complex, any infrastructure monitoring solution needs to not only meet the IT team’s needs, but also the needs of other stakeholders including line of business (LOB) owners and application developers.
For companies already using a monitoring platform like Splunk, monitoring blindspots arise from the need to prioritize across multiple departments. This report outlines a four-step approach for an effective IT operations monitoring (ITOM) strategy.

Examine a few of the enterprise-level features that IT departments and administrators will look for in a file-sharing service.

Compliance is one of the top challenges facing any payroll and HR department. It’s up to you to ensure that all personnel business practices follow current laws and that you are keeping proper records to document your company’s compliance. While an efficient payroll system can help to enhance employee moral and boost your reputation, mistakes in record-keeping and compliance can result in punitive penalties– even lawsuits. Of course, no business wants to expose itself to such financial and reputational risk. However, keeping up to date with payroll legislation can be a complex task. It’s reported that as many as one in three small businesses are penalised for incorrect payroll. To protect your company from costly fines and even litigation, you need to stay informed about employment laws, reporting rules, and changing workforce compliance issues. In this guide, we look at the challenges and the payroll solutions that will help your payroll department meet its compliance requirements wit
