Today’s modern institution moves at the speed of information. Asking yesterday’s finance, HCM, and student information systems to keep pace doesn’t really make sense, does it? Leaders from The Ohio State University, University of Rochester, and Vassar College highlight how their move to the cloud increased productivity, improved efficiencies, lowered the total cost of ownership, and—most importantly—gave their staff and students the necessary tools to succeed.

What's in the white paper? Like all areas of the finance team, the accounts payable department is tasked with working smarter and doing more with less. The challenge is that many organizations are drowning in paper invoices, spreadsheets and manual AP processes. A digital transformation can create more automated workflows, easier tracking of payments, and more overall accountability and visibility. In addition, the data collected can support a more predictable cash flow and a stronger negotiating position with vendors. This white paper will examine AP’s role in reimagining the entire finance process as part of the purchase-to-pay cycle, including: • Avoiding costs of processing paper invoices and payments • The role of the CFO in mitigating risks of manual processes • The value of AP integration with e-payable solutions

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.

To compete in today’s world, business leaders are placing increased demands on IT. Unfortunately, many IT departments are not able to deliver future innovation with their current infrastructure, applications and processes. To meet these demands, IT must digitally transform the enterprise through the adoption of cloud native practices, allowing them to both optimize and transform their existing infrastructure and applications. Recent Avanade research supports this thinking, finding that 88% of senior IT decision-makers believe that IT modernization is crucial to addressing the emerging requirements of the digital business1 . On the upside, those surveyed also indicated that by modernizing their IT infrastructures they expect to deliver real business results, such as boosting annual revenue by 14%, while at the same time reducing business operating costs by 13%1 . For many, this sounds like a winning strategy but what does it mean to adopt cloud native approaches, and how does it impact

We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years. This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity. There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive. Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo

Today’s IT environments are so dynamic and complex that traditional manual administration makes it virtually impossible to keep pace with changing business opportunities and challenges, such as scaling to support new applications and users. Manual administration is not just unsustainable—it’s dangerous. Delays in responding to security threats and compliance issues can have devastating effects: • Security breaches • Failed audits • Financial losses • Loss of customers and reputation • Other serious business consequences To sustain a high level of security and compliance, IT teams must implement a comprehensive, aggressive automation strategy that establishes and tracks key performance indicators. Automation helps to optimize resources, increase efficiencies, lower costs and improve quality of service. This white paper describes principles and best practices for implementing automation as a strategic asset in the ongoing effort to achieve security and compliance excellence in a dynamic

Countless QA teams continue using subpar testing tools because they can’t stand the thought of migrating thousands of test artifacts or training testers on an entirely new platform. Many would prefer the status quo of using their current toolset because they believe that a migration will be painful, or that it will slow them down. But there’s a problem with that logic: The longer they wait, the more obsolete their current toolset becomes, and the further removed QA becomes from the rest of the software development lifecycle — which often means that testing lags behind, remaining a roadblock on the agile transformation journey. This white paper will cover: o The true cost of using inadequate legacy tools, and why migrating now is better than waiting o Six steps to make migration as painless as possible for your QA and development teams o How the entire SDLC benefits from a flexible toolset that integrates quality into agile processes

Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making. Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources. This e-book aims to provide you with expert tips on how to use Amazon Redshift Spectrum to increase performance and potentially reduce the cost of your queries.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the next 12 to 18 months.

This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the
