Modern selling requires a deeper skill set than ever before. Facing hyper-educated buyers and stiff competition, sales reps and channel partners alike are still expected to do more, with less, and faster, as annual quotas continue to rise in a mobile, social, uber-connected business landscape.
Organizations that have virtualized their environments are discovering that the journey's not over. In many ways, it's just beginning. The full benefits of virtualization -- from cost savings and increased speed to resource transparency and control -- can only be fully realized by optimizing all of the interdependent components. In this webcast, IBM leaders discuss how organizations can get more from their virtualization investments with best practices gleaned from years of transforming traditional data centers and building world-class clouds.

Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?
Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.
Recent Aberdeen research conducted for Motivate, Incent, Compensate, Enable: Sales Performance Management Best Practices (January 2013) reveals a number of specific best practices that sales leaders — and their vital sales operations support teams — can adopt, in order to create more opportunity for them to achieve Best-in-Class performance. This Research Brief isolates a number of core competencies and technology enablers that are proven paths to superior corporate and sales-specific results.
Audits are a primary instrument used to assess EH&S compliance. The compliance audit is effective at identifying regulatory program development needs, implementation gaps, and recommending how to gain immediate compliance and minimize liability. Automated audit planning allows organizations to deploy their compliance efforts more efficiently, thus reducing the costs of compliance.
Too often, companies use hindsight as a method to create EH&S compliance strategies, adding strategies as an afterthought when incidents occur. However, Aberdeen Group research shows that Best-in-Class companies exhibit the foresight necessary to ensure the successful automation of compliance audits. They turn to software to automate planning for compliance audits. The value to the organization of automated planning for compliance audits through software benefits the company by helping increase revenue, save money, and manage risk more effectively.
