IBM’s new PowerLinux servers appeal to Linux buyers? Linux buyers are driven by the price advantages that Linux offers as compared with other operating environments (Linux is free open source code) Windows and Unix are chargeable licensed code). Linux buyers, therefore, look first and foremost at the total cost of acquisition of Linux based servers. Linux buyers also want rapid time to value (fast deployment); they often use decentralized procurement processes; they want their Linux servers to be simple to use and manage."

Keeping up with ever changing contract management work is challenging. Governing legal and procurement content is written by thousands of people and applied to hundreds of situations. To stay compliant, organizations employ knowledgeable professionals to analyze every sentence to determine the changes that need to be made to company contracts. The manual process of sifting through these dense, complicated documents is inefficient and prone to error. Watson Compare and Comply is trained on contract specific knowledge and classifications and can streamline contract workflows through semantic understanding. Join Director of Watson Offering Management, Adam Orentrichler, and Chief Data Scientist of SAP Ariba, David Herman, as they discuss how Watson can transform the way your company manages contract governance.

Fact: In the next three years, 53% of CFOs estimate that over half of their enterprise transactions will be delivered through the cloud, up from the 12 percent who use that delivery mechanism today. In addition to non-core business processes like project management and email, strategic CFOs are also starting to embrace the cloud to deliver core ERP processes, including financial management, human capital management, and procurement. Rather than view the cloud just as a cost-saving platform, they recognize the strategic benefits that the cloud delivers to get critical growth initiatives up and running quickly, whether that’s using the cloud to quickly upgrade to a new application, or delivering new mobile or analytical capabilities to employees.
