What are the key elements of a collaboration framework that can help IT decision makers (ITDMs) and business decision makers (BDMs) come to a mutual understanding of how, where and why to use videoenabled collaboration solutions, in particular, F2F video? To answer this question, Techaisle conducted a survey of 1,269 ITDMs and BDMs with SMBs and midmarket businesses, across the US, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The survey was commissioned by Cisco. The survey findings provide guidance to SMBs and midmarket decision makers on how the nature of the collaboration discussion is changing, drive acceptance and use of F2F video throughout their organization to maximize business payback, and align objectives with the outcomes that shape the activities of highgrowth innovative firms who are the most successful users of advanced collaboration technology.

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.

Companies now need to evolve quickly, which means being able to move some or all business operations to an existing or new ERP instance quickly and inexpensively, anywhere in the world. Small companies are increasingly likely to become multi-national as emerging markets take on larger roles in revenue growth. Larger companies continue to optimize and innovate through organic development, as well as through mergers and acquisitions. In this increasingly competitive environment, the ERP deployment choice is a signi?cant advantage for companies seeking an agile response to constantly changing and often-volatile market conditions. In particular, cloud-based ERP systems are increasingly seen as an effective means for companies to economically deploy new ERP or expand IT operations as their commercial reach broadens globally.

Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before, routinely working whenever and wherever necessary, using a variety of mobile devices and productivity apps. They expect their tools to deliver the capabilities they need to stay productive and efficient. But what if they don’t? When a business doesn’t support its workforce with suitable, properly vetted apps, employees will often download and install the tools they like. This trend, called “Shadow IT,” is almost always a recipe for trouble. One-off, standalone apps don’t conform to business strategy and growth plans, but instead create difficulties — security, compatibility, compliance and technical support — that draw resources away from strategic work.

Imagine you manage a warehouse for a small shipping firm. You have a simple job: route packages. But your employer expands to 25 western cities and 50 locations. After further expansion you now need to track packages coming by truck, rail, and plane and route them based on contents and weight to 10,000 different locations worldwide. While keeping traffic in and out tightly secured, making sure each package reaches its destination on time, and without going over budget. You might be wondering how things could get so complicated so quickly. But as an IT professional, you are nodding your head, because it all sounds very familiar.
