There is little question about the role that SAP® BW has historically played in the SAP® infrastructure. It has been a key element in unlocking SAP’s vast and complex store of operational data housed in their ERP applications. One can easily think of BW as the original Rosetta Stone for this data. For without it, end users and IT shops would have faced daunting coding tasks attempting to cull the proper elements out of the SAP® ERP code for reporting. However, BW and the associated tools around it were rudimentary to begin with, and have not advanced to where it meets the pressing demands of todays’ end users.

There is a significant gap between how manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. Better education in project management methodologies and standalone software tools alone will limit a company’s ability to perform at its highest level. A study by Engineering.com found that a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution is the best way for a company to fully achieve its best practices.
This white paper shares how a PLM solution with embedded project management can uniquely provide:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio
• Coordination of a project’s schedule, resources and scope
• Automatic real-time status updates of project tasks
• Mitigation of project risks based upon real-time assessment of product development
Benefit from the unique value provided by PLM systems with embedded project management.
Project management relies primarily on past performance to predict future results, however many companies still lack forward-looking capabilities to predict project outcomes and ensure success. Enhancing project management with PLM analytics offers the opportunity to switch from task-based activities to performance-driven ones to improve success rates.
Use PLM Analytics to:
• Gain actionable insight and valuable intelligence
• Dramatically boost business value and improve project management performance
• Reduce error-prone behavior like manual data collection
• Leverage big-data capabilities and project intelligence
Learn how to extend the value of your PLM investment and improve business performance for your company.
This report explores how HR can be unleashed from time-consuming, manual activities, such as answering benefit enquiries or coordinating employee onboarding tasks. It looks at how those two days a week spent on administrative tasks can be applied to innovative ideas and employee-led initiatives, with real-world examples of HR transformation in practice.
“In the rush to develop apps faster and deliver more, it’s easier than ever for things to fall through the cracks, like every hasty +1’ed dev/test environment creating a potential security minefield of unmasked sensitive fields.
Without the right dev processes, it’s not just security that suffers. With the typical developer spending around 12-hours a week on tasks like setting up and configuring environments or relying on worthless fake data, productivity and quality often fall victim too.
Download the Developer Confessions chapter to discover the biggest frustrations we hear from developers, how to balance access to data with data security, and proven ways to speed up developer productivity.”
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
Managing technology refreshes is not a popular task among enterprise storage administrators, although it is a necessary task for successful businesses. As a business evolves, managing more data and adding new applications in the process, enterprise storage infrastructure inevitably needs to grow in performance and capacity. Enterprise storage solutions have traditionally imposed limitations in terms of their ability to easily accommodate technology refreshes that keep infrastructure current and operating reliably and most cost effectively. In 2015, Pure Storage introduced a new technology refresh model that has driven strong change in the enterprise storage industry by addressing the major pain points of legacy models and provided overall a much more cost-effective life-cycle management approach. In conjunction with other aspects of Pure Storage's enterprise storage product and services offerings, the company's "Evergreen Storage" technology refresh model has contributed to this all-f
Cloud-based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain a competitive advantage in their industry. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be confronted with the challenging task of reconciling their legacy on-premises data with new, third-party cloud-based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.
Effectively using and managing information
has become critical to driving growth in areas
such as pursuing new business opportunities,
attracting and retaining customers, and
streamlining operations. In the era of big data,
you must accommodate a rapidly increasing
volume, variety and velocity of data while
extracting actionable business insight from that
data, faster than ever before.
These needs create a daunting array of
workload challenges and place tremendous
demands on your underlying IT infrastructure
and database systems. In many cases, these
systems are no longer up to the task—so it’s
time to make a decision. Do you use more staff
to keep up with the fixes, patches, add-ons and
continual tuning required to make your existing
systems meet performance goals, or move to a
new database solution so you can assign your
staff to new, innovative projects that move your
At many organisations, planning and budgeting take too long and devour resources. Finance teams spend too much time on administrative tasks relating to these processes—collecting, consolidating and reconciling data, for example—and are left with little time for analysis, strategy development and target setting. Accuracycan be patchy, results unreliable.
Bringing finance closer to the rest of the business is an enticing prospect. But enabling accountants to serve as advocates for other departments is much more than just a relocation task. This latest NetSuite guide helps finance leaders in a growing business discuss business partnering: the whys and the hows.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies.
One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include:
• Loss or theft of device
• Unauthorized access to device
• Mobile operating system vulnerabilities
• Communication over untrusted networks
• Malware or malicious Apps
• Jailbreak or rooting activity
• Data loss through user behaviors
