In today’s technology-rich world, customers and employees demand the highest level of application performance. Failure to provide access to applications that consistently perform well anytime, anywhere, and on any device, often leads to lower productivity, customer dissatisfaction, decreased revenue and market share, and damage to brand reputation. This paper explores the challenges that today’s CIOs face in regard to application performance, and how a more strategic data center approach, like distributing applications closer to your users, can help optimize application performance and reduce IT costs.

How effective is your mobile app development process when it comes to meeting customer needs and business objectives? IBM commissioned Forrester to identify the key drivers of successful mobile apps and the costs of failure -- for both customer-facing and enterprise applications. Watch the webcast to understand the key cost drivers and why it’s more important than ever to get this right due to what Forrester calls the “mobile mind shift.” IBM customer, Bank of Montreal, also shares their mobile app dev story. A good app can increase traffic, sales, productivity and brand satisfaction. And a bad app will do the opposite (you could risk doubling your costs if you’re not mindful of the key cost drivers).

How effective is your mobile app development process when it comes to understanding customer needs and delivering the right apps at the right time? IBM commissioned Forrester to identify the key drivers of successful mobile apps and the costs of failure -- for both customer-facing and enterprise applications. Watch the webcast to understand the key cost drivers and why it’s more important than ever to get this right due to what Forrester calls the “mobile mind shift” and the competitive reality of “mobile moments.” We also invited our customer, Bank of Montreal, to share their mobile app dev story. A good app can increase traffic, sales, productivity and brand satisfaction (see what happened for the Bank of Montreal). And a bad app will do the opposite (you could risk doubling your costs if you’re not mindful of the key cost drivers).

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.

Not long ago, the biggest concern for IT decision makers considering moving workloads to the cloud was security. That’s no longer the case. Today, the main obstacle to cloud adoption is different but familiar: the pain of migrating data. Traditional data migration causes major headaches: • Hours or days of downtime while servers replicate and stakeholders verify functionality • Data loss and migration failures due to inadequate tools and inability to test • Key internal resources diverted from strategic initiatives

With data breaches at an all-time high, the time is now for organisations to identify and protect all personal EU data, and drive towards compliance to the GDPR–failure to do so will lead to significant disruption of business. What’s more, adhering to a compliance and standards based framework can ultimately help the business attract and retain more customers. In the case of the GDPR, compliance demonstrates the organisation’s investments in security, privacy, and customer care.

The use of instant messaging in the energy industry is widespread, with one source estimating that as much as 60% of trading in the physical power markets is conducted using the technology. 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. Download this whitepaper to learn more.

Failing to contain financial crime hits banks with the double impact of crime-related losses and fines imposed by regulators and law enforcement agencies. Depending on the magnitude of a bank’s failure to stem financial crime, fines can run into hundreds of millions of dollars – and even higher in exceptional cases. More importantly, institutions are keen to protect their brand from association with transnational organized-crime rings and scandals related to corruption.

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems.

There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

Code signing is at a crossroads. In many enterprises, the traditional approach remains standard procedure: you purchase a code-signing certificate, download it, and deploy it locally for all your code-signing needs. When carefully managed, this approach can still be very effective in guarding against malware. But recent events have shown that many companies are finding it a challenge to manage their code signing certificate deployments—and failures in certificate management can have serious consequences. To discover how our Secure App Service solution can help you manage your codesigning efforts and provide enterprise-level support, all at a predictable cost, download this whitepaper today and find out more.

Business leaders are eager to harness the power of big data. However, as the opportunity increases, ensuring that source information is trustworthy and protected becomes exponentially more difficult. If not addressed directly, end users may lose confidence in the insights generated from their data—which can result in a failure to act on opportunities or against threats. Information integration and governance must be implemented within big data applications, providing appropriate governance and rapid integration from the start. By automating information integration and governance and employing it at the point of data creation, organizations can boost confidence in big data. A solid information integration and governance program must become a natural part of big data projects, supporting automated discovery, profiling and understanding of diverse data sets to provide context and enable employees to make informed decisions. It must be agile to accommodate a wide variety of data and seamle

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.
