„Der Nutzen von Agile ist mehrdimensional. Die wichtigste Veränderung besteht jedoch darin, dass sich das gesamte Unternehmen darauf konzentriert, dem Kunden ein wertvolles Produkt bereitzustellen. Statt indirekte Messdaten zu nutzen, die die Qualität und die Fortschritte unserer Software graduell quantifizieren ..., fragen wir: ‚Welchen Prozentsatz der wichtigen Funktionalität enthält dieses Release?‘ Diese Konzentration auf den Wert, den die Kunden wahrnehmen können, hat umfassende Auswirkungen auf unseren gesamten Projektlebenszyklus.“ Vice President of Infrastructure Management BMC Software
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.

Organizations are faced with providing secure authentication, authorization, and Single Sign On (SSO) access to thousands of users accessing hundreds of disparate applications. Ensuring that each user has only the necessary and authorized permissions, managing the user’s identity throughout its life cycle, and maintaining regulatory compliance and auditing further adds to the complexity. These daunting challenges are solved by Identity and Access Management (IAM) software.
Traditional IAM supports on-premises applications, but its ability to support Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based applications, mobile computing, and new technologies such as Big Data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is limited. Supporting on-premises IAM is expensive, complex, and time-consuming, and frequently incurs security gaps.
Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is an SaaS-based IAM solution deployed from the cloud. By providing seamless SSO integration to legacy on-premises applications and modern cloud-

In letzter Zeit ist das Portfoliomanagement zunehmend zu einer strategischen Aufgabe im Unternehmen geworden. Dies hat dazu geführt, dass viele Anbieter von Software, die sich auf Elemente der Projektdurchführung bezieht, Module für das Projekt- und Portfoliomanagement (PPM) „antackern“.
Dies ist offensichtlich ein Versuch, sich ein Stück eines wachsenden, lukrativen Markts abzuschneiden. Vor 25 Jahren war PPM-Software lediglich Projektmanagementsoftware mit der Fähigkeit, Informationen projektübergreifend zu veröffentlichen oder weiterzugeben. Sie bot viele Funktionen, aber keine davon waren intuitiv, und deshalb war sie nicht besonders nützlich.
Im Vergleich zu den heutigen Lösungen waren diese Produkte Dinosaurier. Seitdem haben zahlreiche Anbieter viel Geld in ihre Lösungen investiert. Sie haben hervorragende Angebote entwickelt, die ein effektives Management des Portfolios und vor allem des Unternehmens, dem dieses Portfolio dient, wirklich unterstützen können.

As organizations look for more ways to increase productivity and profitability, human resources departments are being asked to provide more strategic input to executives. Doing so requires tools that improve access to timely, accurate information for enhanced business decision making. If you don’t have a human resource management system (HRMS), HR can end up spending too much time on repetitive day-to-day tasks like paperwork while struggling to deliver meaningful workforce insights. The right HR management software can help the HR team increase control over employee data, optimize productivity, and take employee engagement to the next level, so you can deliver the future workforce your organization needs to succeed. This white paper discusses the five areas to keep in mind when evaluating solutions to find an HRMS that’s a good fit for your business.

2017 was billed as the worst on record for cybersecurity. No doubt, the continued rise of modern threat vectors has IT on high alert. In essence, IT professionals view their role as responsible for keeping the door shut.

How can human resources partner with IT to drive communication and knowledge-sharing while supporting business objectives? In today’s distributed workforce HR can embrace social business, taking the lead in defining new HR practices to support the changing workplace landscape and foster innovation and integrated employee networks.
