The ROI of Streamlined Contractor Qualification

Published By: Avetta     Published Date: Sep 17, 2019
A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade. More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome. But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous. This white paper will discuss: • The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management • Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance • The cost of different contractor management systems • How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain

A Repeatable Cloud-First Deployment Process Model

Published By: Dome9     Published Date: Apr 25, 2018
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.
