Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps. The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr

Today’s marketers are leveraging technology and data to drive decision making: demand gen, marketing communications, and other disciplines can strongly demonstrate their value with metrics that summarize tangible bottomline impact on the business. That hasn’t been true for PR. In PR, we’re still tied to legacy metrics that are more about counting mentions and ‘clips’ than about measuring business impact.

In some kinds of more traditional businesses the finance department tends to swallow as much data as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s revenue vs target in the last quarter”. These are undoubtedly essential for proper business management, But periodic reports also mean it can be too late for the business to respond. It’s like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror. Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a sudden bend in the road! Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved business environment of today requires businesses to have proactive, indicative business metrics. Combined with more traditional metrics, these mean businesses have invaluable and complete insight in order to evaluate performance. Proactive, indicative business metrics are found across most successful businesses–and especially amongst C-suite employees. These people know that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven execu

For both finance and HR, this separation is often driven by organizational obstacles, disparate systems and data sources, regulatory uncertainty, and a lack of complete visibility into the business. As Joseph Fanutti, CFO of Bill Gosling Outsourcing, says of his own organization’s challenges, “Finance operated its own silo, HR its own, operations its own. There was a lack of consistency in terms of how we viewed the business.” He recalls, “Numbers were always challenged, no one could agree on metrics, and people couldn’t agree on what actions to take going forward.” If this situation sounds familiar, that’s because it’s commonplace across organizations the world over. Strategic uncertainty and incomplete data are symptoms of a larger problem: a lack of unification among finance, HR, and operations teams. Managers need to make financial and people decisions in tandem, yet traditional systems store this information independently. This separation creates multiple versions of the same u

As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively.

The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF). Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

In recent years, it seems like technology is changing faster than it used to in decades past. As employees devour newer technologies such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices, and as they become more comfortable with solutions such as Dropbox and Skype, their demands on enterprise IT intensify. Plus, management and other decision makers are also increasing their demands on enterprise IT to provide more infrastructure with less cost and time. Unfortunately, enterprise IT organizations often don’t see much, if any, associated increases in funding to accomodate these demands.
