Sonoma County and IBM working together to change lives

Published By: Group M_IBM Q3'19     Published Date: Jun 24, 2019
Society simply must change the way it serves its most vulnerable members. Service delivery models are outdated and constrained by budgets, organizational structures and legislation. Citizens aren’t getting what they need to become more self-sufficient and recover from hard times or significant events such as disasters. Government isn’t keeping up with the demand generated by the complex times we live in and agencies are stressed to the breaking point by current service expectations. Something different must be done to generate better outcomes. This action requires better engagement between government and citizens which can lead to more self-reliant individuals and lower demands and costs on government. In California, one county is tackling this challenge head on and has found a better way to serve their citizens.

Published By: Sparton Corporation     Published Date: Jan 08, 2019
With the cost of manufacturing in China escalating, companies are increasingly looking to Southeast Asia for an alternative to meet their outsource manufacturing needs. Emerging as the leading alternative to China, Vietnam is now a destination choice for outsource manufacturing due to the unique financial advantages it can provide companies, including those in high-tech segments such as medical and commercial aerospace. In addition to lowering total costs, Vietnam offers companies a larger labor force, strong IP protection, and reliable quality in the manufacturing process, among other benefits. Moving their contract manufacturing to Vietnam can provide companies an excellent foundation for long-term profits and sustained growth.

The 2020 Vision: The Next Decade for Enterprise Intelligence

Published By: MicroStrategy     Published Date: Jun 11, 2019
The use of analytics has exploded across business, and the value it already has delivered has heightened executives' expectations. Now data can be processed in real time to meet a constantly widening range of analytic needs. How your organization utilizes them in the next decade will be essential to your success. These developments come at an opportune time. Organizations are being over-whelmed by the rivers of data generated by applications and systems on-premises or flowing in via the cloud. At the same time, the cost of computational power has declined dramatically, making it practical to apply analytics to and generate information on just about anything. But no advance comes without challenges.

Measuring the Value and Payback of Network Visibility

Published By: Emulex Corporation     Published Date: Nov 07, 2013
An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it? We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones. But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.

We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier2 engineers to resolve the most difficult and costly network issues. That way, you can use less expensive personnel to handle the more common, numerous, and easily resolvable problems. But justifying a network investment using soft, intuitive arguments like these alone often doesn’t suffice in an economic climate where budgets are closely guarded and business cases for procurements are mandatory. And depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential and payback will vary. Download this Whitepaper for more information.

Turn Your Shop Floor Into a Strategic Business Driver

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Aug 01, 2017
Like many manufacturers, your shop floor operations may be challenged with inefficient standard processes, unpredictable downtime, and difficulties with machinery maintenance. A manufacturing execution system (MES) can help make the most of your shop floor’s capabilities, with tools that can identify under-performing and high-performance machines, and then optimize asset utilization accordingly. Engineers can design, refine, and implement better work processes, and operations professionals can improve preventive maintenance and response times. The result is less downtime, less scrap, more productivity, and lower cost. With the real-time information of an MES, you can transform the shop floor into an important contributor that drives the strategic direction of your business, differentiates your brand, and positions your company as a market leader.

How CFOs build world class AP departments with AP automation

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Jun 06, 2018
Accounts Payable is a fundamental activity for nearly all businesses. Pick any enterprise and you can bet there is an AP function at the heart of financial operations. The obligation to pay off short-term debt is one that every company must satisfy. But more than that, the process to do it must be efficient and productive. If you get behind on your obligations you risk missing important financial discounts, defaulting with creditors, and damaging your reputation with suppliers and stakeholders. CFOs face the challenges associated with Accounts Payable…and it’s easy to lose sleep. As other areas of business and commerce have become more and more paperless, the accounts payable process in most organizations remains mired in paper copies and manual workflow. The result is an often costly and people-intensive process that leaves companies vulnerable to competitors and financial executives with a growing unease over the inherent inefficiencies.

Risk or Reward? Collaboration and Social Media In the Pharmaceutical Industry

Published By: Actiance, Inc.     Published Date: Jan 15, 2015
But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or
