Prophix and IMA hosted a webcast, titled “Overcoming Barriers to Implement CPM Methods”, featuring subject matter expert Gary Cokins, the CEO, at Analytics-Based Performance Management. The adoption rate of business analytics and corporate performance management (CPM) methods has been slowed by various barriers. Gary Cokins outlines the causes of this lag, as well as lessons learned about how to overcome obstacles, and obtain buy-in to manage and improve performance. He describes techniques such as strategy maps, balanced scorecards with key performance indicators (KPIs), channel and customer profitability reporting, and driver-based budgeting that can prevent failure when implementing CPM methods.

System administrators and other IT practitioners spend as much as 50% of their time on routine, repetitive tasks. Does the following apply to your organization? • You go from one server to the next, installing the same package on all of them. It works nine times out of 10, but the tenth time causes a failure ... and you can't identify what went wrong. • You can't scale. When the business wants to move to the cloud, or asks for faster provisioning of development and test environments, you only have so many hours in the day — and you can't meet everyone's needs. • You don't have time to get to the work that matters. You spend too much time on routine system management, and can't prepare for the projects that will bring real business value to your team — and customers. With growing demands from all corners of your organization, you simply can't keep doing it all manually.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can benefit from the expansive use of information technology (IT) just as much as their larger counterparts. Indeed, in many cases they have to, because to trade they need to interact with business partners of all sizes and IT failure affects not just internal users but those of third parties.

Whether we like it or not we are all IT users now. Through the ubiquity of networks of devices that we rely on for information, security and day-to-day transactions even those who eschew technology now rely on it, even if they do not acknowledge it. The failure of these networks can lead to widespread disruption, unhappy customers, unproductive employees and lost business. Ensuring their availability, security and efficiency is a job for experts who need powerful tools to carry out the task.

The list of initiatives that are data-enabled-indeed, data-intensive-vary from company to company, from industry to industry. But the common denominator is an increasing awareness that these and other programs can't succeed without clean, meaningful, and available information. In this white paper, Baseline Consulting's Jill Dyché discusses how the data conversation is changing from philosophical questioning to hard-core tactics, from "What do we need?" to "Where do we start?" It covers the most common reasons for data governance failure, as well as the components of data governance that will inform the right strategy and give companies a means of determining where and how to begin their data governance journeys.

Failing to contain financial crime hits banks with the double impact of crime-related losses and fines imposed by regulators and law enforcement agencies. Depending on the magnitude of a bank’s failure to stem financial crime, fines can run into hundreds of millions of dollars – and even higher in exceptional cases. More importantly, institutions are keen to protect their brand from association with transnational organized-crime rings and scandals related to corruption.

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.
