Cloud adoption is growing, but relatively few organizations have advanced cloud strategies.
Achieving greater levels of cloud adoption allows organizations to materially improve strategic allocation of IT budgets, lower IT costs, reduce time to provision IT services, increase revenue, and improve ability to meet SLAs.
Private cloud adoption is greater than public cloud. Additionally,
private cloud/OpenStack adopters are more likely to expect better business outcomes.
IDC sees web-scale public cloud making way for enterprise-class
This paper analyzes case studies aimed to determine how changes in public discussion (unpaid media) correlate to changes in business outcomes. It focuses on analyzing tonality and message, and how they modify the effect of pure media coverage volume in correlations against outcomes.

Business users need a simple but powerful way to navigate through data and find the insights to make timely, critical business decisions. Unfortunately, many users have become frustrated at their inability to quickly access and analyze the information they require. This data typically includes a combination of personal and corporate data locked in various enterprise systems. It exists in different formats and can be hard to analyze, change or share — making it difficult for people to get fast answers to business questions.
To better understand the value that firms are deriving from Unified Communications (UC), the status of its adoption, and the barriers to full implementation, IBM engaged Forrester Consulting to survey network and telecom buyers and reflect upon existing research. Data from this survey, combined with existing research and insights, yields a picture of UC deployment and decision-making in enterprises.
"The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is one of the nation’s most popular attractions, a Top 10 Zagat-rated Zoo, and a Top Zoo for Children according to Parent’s Magazine. Each year, more than 1.3 million people visit its 71-acre site, which is home to more than 500 animal and 3,000 plant species. Although the Zoo is a non-profit organization and is partially subsidized by Hamilton County, more than two thirds of its $26 million annual budgetis generated through its own fundraising
According to Dr. Barry Devlin of 9sight Consulting, the truth behind all the talk about big data and the possibilities it can offer is not hard to see, provided that organizations are willing to return to the principles of good data management processes.

IT organizations are focusing on supporting growth, boosting revenue, advancing innovation, and delivering new customer experiences. Their mission is no longer about managing and troubleshooting technology. It’s about transforming business processes and driving new business outcomes.
What are the key elements of a collaboration framework that can help IT decision makers (ITDMs) and
business decision makers (BDMs) come to a mutual understanding of how, where and why to use videoenabled
collaboration solutions, in particular, F2F video? To answer this question, Techaisle conducted a
survey of 1,269 ITDMs and BDMs with SMBs and midmarket businesses, across the US, Latin America,
Europe, and Asia Pacific. The survey was commissioned by Cisco.
The survey findings provide guidance to SMBs and midmarket decision makers on how the nature of the
collaboration discussion is changing, drive acceptance and use of F2F video throughout their organization
to maximize business payback, and align objectives with the outcomes that shape the activities of highgrowth
innovative firms who are the most successful users of advanced collaboration technology.
CTOs, CIOs, and application architects need access to datacenter facilities capable of handling the
broad range of content serving, Big Data/analytics, and archiving functions associated with the
systems of engagement and insight that they depend upon to better service customers and enhance
business outcomes. They need to enhance their existing datacenters, they need to accelerate the
building of new datacenters in new geographies, and they need to take greater advantage of
advanced, sophisticated datacenters designed, built, and operated by service providers. IDC terms
this business and datacenter transformation the shift to the 3rd Platform.
Technology’s role in business and society has
shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to
innovating and creating engaging experiences
that attract and retain customers. Innovations and
business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm
of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine
learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The
convergence of these technologies has created
new opportunities for enterprises to improve
business performance by acquiring customers
faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of
technology expands the interaction with customers
beyond the core of the enterprise – away from
100% dependencies on systems of records –
and towards real-time, contextual interactions.
Businesses are a digital business or they are
evolving to become one. This requires enterprises
to re-think how they build software architectures.

Statistics are the underpinning of how Optimizely’s customers use data to make decisions. We use experiments to understand how changes we make affect the performance of our online experiences. To do this, we need a framework for evaluating how likely those changes are to have an impact, positive or negative, on a business over time.
To run great experiments, investing in an understanding of statistics is one of the most important skills you can develop. Statistics provide inference on your results and help to determine whether you have a winning variation. Using statistical values to decide leads to stable, replicable results you can bet your business on. Lack of understanding can lead to errors and
unreliable outcomes from your experiments.
Today data is the new currency of business. But many organizations have yet to make the most of data insights that drive better outcomes. This e-book describes how businesses can manage information with greater efficiency, speed and continuity for improved ROI through.
Organizations are largely relying on TCO and ROI models in determining whether or not to invest in a unified communications (UC) solution. But what other factors are they considering? You’ll better understand the value that firms are deriving from UC, the status of its adoption, and the barriers to full implementation.
Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.

Enterprise mobile capabilities ideally complement, protect, and enable market-leading mobile applications to improve workforce productivity and intelligence and enable increased sales performance as a result. After a number of years of considering the relative value of various new devices, mobile device management (MDM) paradigms, development methodologies, new services, and new connectivity models, retailers are ramping up investments in enterprise mobility. Rugged devices can be part of this business outcome-centered approach, adding enterprise mobility to deliver great experiences and comparatively reduce the economic cost of doing so — importantly, doing so with continued ease in supportability, excellence in performance, and consistency in usability. Retailers are continuing to invest in deployment of secure ruggedized mobile devices for many reasons that are explored in this white paper.
Most enterprise datacenters are so cluttered with individually constructed servers, including database servers, that staff time is largely taken up with just the maintenance of these systems. As a result, IT service to business users suffers, and the agility of the enterprise suffers. Integrated systems represent an antidote to this problem. By dramatically reducing the amount of setup and maintenance time for the applications and databases they support, integrated systems enable the technical staff to spend more of their time supporting users and enabling the enterprise to thrive.
