These are the end times for traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Overstatement? Not really—especially for growing businesses like yours. Old-school ERP systems are simply too slow, complex, and inflexible to keep up with today’s business climate. Think about your existing ERP. Does it support industry-specific best practices, ever-changing regulatory requirements, and emerging technologies such as social media, mobile, cloud, and analytics? If not, you could risk losing ground to your competitors as a result.

Today’s business climate demands that corporations have a flexible computing infrastructure. Because of the agility it provides, cloud computing is garnering interest in many organisations. As they look at such possible deployments, however, some CIOs become hamstrung by security concerns. They feel that the traditional method of securing information in premises-based systems is the best way. While that option worked for many years, the threat landscape today is more diverse and more potentially damaging than ever before.

Rather than simply enhancing and supporting traditional methods, the use of digital technologies should enable brand new types of innovation and creativity. However, most of us have grown up with rigid, legacy technology-based business systems—process-oriented and mostly built around predictable, repeatable steps. If this sounds familiar, your business model may now be under threat from “digital Darwinism”—a tipping point caused by digital technologies and downstream market effects. Or perhaps nimbler, lower cost-base competitors are about to overtake you with a more innovative approach, better use of data or smarter use of technology. In this climate, “business as usual” is certainly no longer good enough.

The use of analytics will define the successful midmarket business of the next decade, just as it will define the successful larger organization in this information age. The past decade has seen rapid change in the business climates with an explosion of global competition and economic uncertainty. Despite this, many midmarket companies have thrived by using their size and agility as a competitive advantage. Certainly they have fewer resources than large corporations who are able to invest large sums in IT. However, small yachts can turn and adjust their course much quicker than large cruise ships. The same came be said for midmarket companies. The most successful organizations are ones that can react the quickest to changes in the market place. Midmarket companies can take advantage of their smaller size by being more agile and quicker to change, or even reinvent themselve

Think back to the last time all of your employees were in the office, at their desks, on the same day. Having trouble? Between travel schedules and off-site meetings, remote staff and teleworkers, flexible schedules and sick days, it’s no wonder that having everyone in the office at the same time has become a rarity. Balance that with the fact that in today’s competitive business climate, organisations are driven and employees are measured by achieving results, and it’s clear how important it is to maintain productivity no matter where staff are located. But it’s not always easy to do. Here are five ways you can improve employee productivity in your organisation.

The continual changes in the business climate constantly challenge companies to find more effective business practices. However, common budgeting limitations are preventing companies from moving forward; they have become so universal and accepted in the marketplace that it is becoming more difficult to move ahead and progress the business. Flexibility, accuracy and control over the budgeting process are three prominent factors slowing this progression.

Global competition and volatile markets are creating a challenging business climate for project based firms which leave them with little room for error when managing projects. Oil & Gas companies have their own individual challenges when it comes to managing their asset's lifecycles, but one area that is often overlooked or pushed off until the last minute is the decommissioning phase of their assets.
