IT leaders working on customer service projects must display an incredible amount of diligence. An organization’s CRM system has become its lifeline to customers, but as customer needs evolve so has the requirements of CRM. According to Gartner, today’s CRM solution must include a laundry list of capabilities outside its traditional core functionality including: native mobile support of the vendor's customer service and support business applications; real-time analytics; industry-specific functionality and workflow; context mining of voice and text; scalable cloud-based systems; social media engagement; suggested next agent action; multimodal capabilities, such as chat within mobile self-service; and even co-browsing. Gartner surveyed the CRM field and evaluated each vendor including Pegasystems.

Some of the specific issues organizations face with

- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are

flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN

Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process.
Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some
of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is
plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical
element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for
metal additive manufacturing.
It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print.
Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required
for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications.
This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM,
explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing
business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.

Hybrid cloud architectures are growing in popularity as a way to cope with today's business needs. This paper outlines a framework and specific solutions for adopting a hybrid cloud architecture to support increased profits and productivity.
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.
In collaboration with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), AppDynamics has conducted a survey of application management professionals and managers to determine exactly what IT organizations want and need from APM providers.
Here are some key findings from the research:
• Only 30% of companies currently have application-specific solutions to monitor apps
• 50% or fewer of the tools companies have purchased are actively being used to monitor apps
• 27% of application-related problems are detected by monitoring tools
• A “unified monitoring platform” is the top choice in a feature of an APM solution
Download the full report to review the findings and understand the key challenges and “must haves” associated with APM solutions voiced by IT professionals themselves.

As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel. At the same time, however, many IT professionals tend to spend little time or energy on the specific products they use to deliver and distribute electrical power. In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center. But choosing the right in-rack power solutions can save organizations from potentially crippling downtime and deliver significant up-front and ongoing savings through improved IT efficiency and data center infrastructure management.
The old canon of long-lived viruses with random targets created by hacktivists for fame or nuisance has given way to a new generation zeroday/hour threats from organized criminals, with hand-picked targets and specific, malicious intent. In mid-2014, on a daily basis, Webroot saw 25,000 new malicious URLs, 777,000 new unknown files, many of which are malicious, and 1,000 new phishing sites. In the face of such exponential growth, traditional, reactive security can’t hope to keep up.
Not only is the volume of unknown threats overwhelming existing security solutions, but the unique characteristics of unknown threats are also making it difficult for traditional security to catch them.
A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress
