Finance has a mandate to become a strategic business partner. Integrated business planning offers organizations the ability to align operations and sales strategy with the company’s continuous financial performance. An increasing number of organizations have shown that even small steps toward integrated business planning have helped them deliver immediate benefits to the business, including light-touch forecasts, rapid “what-if” analyses, and more accurate budgets. Improved collaboration between departments, driving more awareness and shared understanding of potential issues, allows the business to take the prompt and incisive actions needed to keep performance on track. The question to consider is not “When are we going to do this?” but “Why don’t we start now?” because time is ticking away.

Cloud computing has changed the way businesses and people think about using technology to serve their needs. Too many, cloud computing is nothing but hype and overblown as the new direction for Information Technology. But to many more, cloud computing represents the future of how every business should plan, operate and execute applications, systems and processes. Goldman Sachs forecasts spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018 compared with 5 percent growth for overall enterprise IT. Moreover, Forrester recently revised its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20 percent. Regardless, it is important to know what cloud computing is.

The container revolution is under way today as companies seek to move faster and build digital assets to support growth. IDC forecasts that there will be over 1.8 billion enterprise container instances deployed by 2021. Container platforms will be key to managing the ever-expanding diversity of IT environments (multiple operating systems, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds). While containers are the perfect vehicle to underpin cloud-native, microservices applications, containers are also well suited to many existing applications. These applications can reap immediate benefits from being modernized and prepare for possible refactoring over time. To successfully leverage containers in these diverse scenarios and do it at scale, enterprises will need a robust, integrated, and holistic container platform.

Since when did budgeting become a process that companies dread? Just say the word “budget,” and you’ll elicit at least a few groans or eyerolls from teams outside of finance. It’s daunting: the weight of the next few years rests on a couple of forecasts, financial projections and line-item lists. As a result, cross-functional teams are under a lot of stress to ensure that their cases and arguments are heard. In some ways, the budgeting process almost feels combative.
