Software development projects have a long and storied history of failure. In fact, 82% of projects today run late, while errors cost 80% of the average project budget to fix (The Standish Group). Certainly no other business process today is allowed to endure this sort of failure. But software development is often left to chance, despite the significant cost and importance of the process.

Before moving to 8x8, MOBI had a premises-based telephone and contact center system. “We had a lot of points of failure inside of our building. And because our help desk and contact center is so critical we absolutely had to do something about it.” Mobi wanted one system to handle all interactions with their customers, primarily phone calls and instant messaging. According to Mobi, “What stood out about 8x8 was that everything was managed under one roof.” Mobi has been able to achieve this with 8x8’s integrated Virtual Office and Virtual Contact Center solutions.

Moreover, a Microsoft/Accenture survey found that 34% of oil and gas professionals are collaborating more than they were 12 months earlier, while only 10% are collaborating less. While real-time communications, such as instant messaging, are very useful for traders and others in the energy industry, a failure to monitor and retain them along with other electronic communications can result in substantial penalties and other serious consequences.

ERP system acquisition projects are rarely deemed to fail.  All the well-advertised failures come later, during implementation and afterward.  Nevertheless, the seeds of these failures are invariably planted in the earliest stages of ERP acquisition planning.

Projects to implement ERP tend to be difficult, expensive and drawn-out. They are often full of painful surprises and overrun budgets and schedules that were extravagant in the first place. They fail entirely in an alarming number of cases.  Why this should be so is not immediately apparent. If we list, at a fairly high level, the tasks required to implement an ERP system in a company that’s already familiar with ERP practices, what we see is a significant but not daunting amount of work.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.

obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst for transactions across all markets. In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment technology is enabling businesses to sell products and services to consumers that had previously been out of reach. In developed markets, it has made the process of purchasing products and services even simpler. PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in payment volume throughout 2015, and now has 188 million active registered user accounts across the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile payments will account for more than $210 billion in transactions by 2019. Mobile payment technology is a step forward in the process of connecting businesses to the people they are serving. However, some merchants will find themselves miles behind their competitors by the time the transition to mobile payments is complete. The reason? A failure to implement the correct mobile payment strategy. An ever-increasing numbe

The goal of usability testing, simply put, is to make sure that a user can complete the tasks they are expected to complete. Usability testing doesn’t test whether or not the functions of the application, website or connected device work correctly, but rather that a user intuitively understands how to perform these tasks — and how easy or difficult it was to do so. With usability testing, “close enough” won’t cut it. A product may have a superior architecture, a great set of features, good performance, scalability and a number of other positive attributes. However, all of this effort is wasted if the user experience is inadequate. An application, website or connected device that is not user-friendly is just as bad as a buggy version and can lead to diminished revenue, product abandonment or a total failure. An application with poor usability can also negatively affect a brand
