To meet growing demand for multiple public cloud services, enterprises must shift away from an ad hoc approach of incrementally connecting to one cloud provider after another. For a more strategic approach, I&O leaders must weigh their cloud connectivity decision against five critical criteria.

Eine Firma ist nur so handlungsfähig wie ihr Netzwerk. Änderungen an der Netzwerkarchitektur sind daher riskant. Verbesserungen an der Sicherheit eines IT-Netzwerkes bedeuten oft schlechtere Netzwerk-Performance und umgekehrt. Vor allem, wenn Netzwerke nicht konsistent sind und dadurch der Verwaltungsaufwand sehr hoch ist, sollte man über eine Neuplanung nachdenken.

A modern data warehouse is designed to
support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and
streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural
platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling
organizations to derive deeper business insights.
Key elements of a modern data warehouse:
• Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources
• Federated querying: ability to run a query across heterogeneous sources of data
• Data consumption: support numerous types of analysis - ad-hoc exploration, predefined

• 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
The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right
stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure,
compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.
Some organizations have carefully crafted strategies for cloud technology adoption; but for most, their journey to the cloud has been an ad hoc affair. Many have deployed applications in a number of different clouds: public clouds, private clouds, and even combinations of the two. While public and private clouds demonstrate how effective they can be in enabling companies to deploy applications quickly, hybrid cloud strategies prove the value of hosting applications in both cloud and on-premises environments. Similarly, SaaS offerings transform the way businesses interact with customers, partners, and vendors.

To stay relevant in today’s competitive, digitally disruptive market, and to stay ahead of your competition, you have to do more than just store, extract, and analyze your data — you have to draw the true business value out of it. Fail to evolve, and your organization might be left behind as companies ramp up and speed up their competitive, decision-making environments. This means deploying cost-effective, energy-efficient solutions that allow you to quickly mine and analyze your data for valuable information, patterns, and trends, which in turn can enable you to make faster ad-hoc decisions, reduce risk, and drive innovation.
If your business relies on an owner or other employee to manage HR tasks, rather than employing a certified, dedicated HR expert, you might be experiencing some unforeseen risks, including wasted time and decreased morale. Check out the infographic to learn more about the risks of ad hoc HR management, as well as what you can do to free your company from this burden so you can focus on what you do best.

Der traditionelle Ansatz der Cyber-Sicherheit besteht in einer präventionsorientierten Strategie, die darauf fokussiert, Angriffe zu stoppen. Und tatsächlich lassen sich mit präventionsorientierten Ansätzen viele Bedrohungen abwehren, doch den versierten und hochmotivierten Bedrohungsakteuren von heute gelingt es immer öfter, diese Abwehrmaßnahmen mit kreativen, verdeckten, gezielten und permanenten Angriffen zu umgehen, die oft lange unentdeckt bleiben.
Does your company rely on an ad hoc HR manager, an owner or other employee who takes on HR responsibilities in addition to their “day job?” View the SlideShare and learn how releasing the burden of ad hoc HR management can free you up to do more by doing less.
Many small businesses rely on owners and other employees to take on HR responsibilities in addition to their “day jobs,” a role we call the ad hoc HR manager (aHRM). Although a common practice, using an aHRM can present unforeseen risks. Read the complete guide to risky ad hoc HR management to find out more.

It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions.

With today’s stratified business communications, small to midsize companies face challenges as they try to modernize their online collaboration workflows. They’re frequently stitching together discrete, ad hoc communications tools to perform a variety of team-based tasks, but the limitations of this approach quickly become apparent as projects grow more complex.
This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services,
they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators
(KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision,
and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their
orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity:
ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while
there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue
and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in
additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.
If cloud architectures were human beings, their development stage would fall squarely in the middle of adolescence. Enterprises are at an inflection point with their cloud deployments as they migrate from ad hoc projects to full-fledged, mature, integrated cloud architectures. The discussion around cloud reflects the trepidation and uncertainty that come with adolescence: Cloud advocates express excitement, whereas others voice concern about these developments.
In the early 2000s, two vastly different businesses—baseball and field service management—began to use advanced statistical analysis to gain an advantage over their competitors. They both revolutionized their respective fields by using statistical knowledge to improve performance. The new approach replaced old models and methods and attained shockingly good results as both set new standards for their respective industries.
In this white paper, you will learn the general concepts behind predictive analytics and how they can be applied to a field service organization. The paper will cover the basic metrics that should be tracked, the use of performance pattern profiles, and how these principles can predict future events.
For many small to medium size companies, finding the time to proactively manage employee performance is difficult. The emphasis is more often on increasing revenues and achieving stability, especially in the early days. However, as businesses grow, the need for improving staff engagement, productivity and loyalty becomes increasingly important. It is at this critical stage that Performance Management can mean the difference between businesses that experience sustained growth and those whose momentum falters.
Even when organisations are aware of the importance of Performance Management, the tendency is to carry it out in an ad hoc manner. Such methods work with a low headcount, but as this increases, more formal processes are needed.
6 Steps to Performance Management Best Practice offers a practical guide for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that have identified Performance Management as part of their long term growth strategy. Drawing on industry research, client case studies and
