Top Ten IT Strategies To Employ During This Economic Downturn

Published By: 123Together     Published Date: Mar 17, 2009
With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Prevention of ERP Implementation Failure

Published By: Adaptive Growth     Published Date: May 14, 2008
Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

The CFO as the Architect

Published By: Adaptive Planning     Published Date: Oct 19, 2011
Despite a number of compelling reasons to move away from annual plans and budgets, many CFOs are reluctant to make the change. They fail to recognize that there are alternative (and less dysfunctional) ways of driving performance improvement and making managers accountable for performance. CFOs need to implement systems that provide managers at every level with the capability to make fast, well-informed decisions. They need to replace annual planning cycles with more regular business reviews that enable managers to see trends, patterns, and "breaks in the curve" long before the competition.

Security-as-a-Service in the Carrier Cloud: How CSPs Can Capture the SMB Opportunity

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Nov 13, 2018
The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs) continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn, better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small to medium-size business (SMB) market segment. The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks. While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the service in a car

Think Big Data, Think Amazon Web Services

Published By: Amazon     Published Date: Nov 07, 2013
Until recently, it has been far cheaper and easier to produce and store data than to process it. Companies have the option to buy large, multi-million dollar hardware devices to process their big data, but with budgets under pressure and no clear way to calculate returns on investment, the business case is difficult to make… And when analysts explain to the CTO that they only need the hardware for six months, for one day a week, or for one hour a day, the investment becomes impossible to justify. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn how by eliminating the traditionally high ‘cost of entry’ for big data analysis, Amazon Web Services is enabling customers to convert more raw data into more valuable business insight.

Driving Business Growth With Finance-Led, Integrated Business Planning

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 29, 2018
Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.
