IT managers must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the minute.

Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

Today’s businesses rely heavily on email to communicate with clients, partners, and colleagues. But research suggests that organizations are lacking when it comes to protecting themselves against the increasing number of customized and complex attacks. When polled by Mimecast, 83% of IT security managers said they see email as a primary source of attack, yet 65% claim they aren’t fully equipped to resolve the risks associated with email threats. Respondents’ perceptions of primary security threats also appeared to change based on having experienced a successful breach. However, viruses, malware, spam, and insider threats remain the top concerns for both groups, both with and without breach experience.

The economic crisis has ushered in stormy days. Sales have collapsed, production lines are idled, and employees are being laid off. There is no doubt about it: companies must find ways to save money.

To many company leaders, compliance is not “sexy,” or even interesting. Some even consider paying fines and settling lawsuits for non-compliance as inevitable costs of doing business. But the authors of this ExecBlueprint respectfully disagree. They describe how HR can partner with the business to develop compliance strategies that actually address the company’s objectives and culture — and save money in the process. This should not, however, be a reactive endeavor that kicks in only when a new law is passed. Rather, HR should develop and house a “compliance infrastructure” that performs many invaluable functions, including researching applicable laws and weighing risks. HR drafts the policies and procedures, but the executive team gets the final say.
