The shift to value-based care creates a sharp increase in healthcare organizations and networks’ need for data collection, aggregation and analysis. This white paper outlines the challenges involved with performing population-level analyses, developing cost accounting and profitability analyses across care settings, evaluating care episodes and integrating quality data. It explores the limitations of targeted software solutions to provide cross-enterprise insights. Finally, it provides advice for healthcare executives regarding how to approach gathering quality and cost-related data and how to leverage technology and analytical expertise to drive risk-based contract success.
As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.
Für viele Unternehmen stehen die Flexibilisierung und Agilität der IT-Infrastruktur ganz oben im Pflichtenheft. Immer mehr Geschäftsprozesse erfolgen online und in Echtzeit. Die klassische IT-Service-Delivery kommt zunehmend an ihre Grenzen und den IT-Abteilungen fällt es immer schwerer, die Anforderungen der Fachbereiche nach schneller und kostengünstiger Bereitstellung von ITRessourcen zu erfüllen.

Le divisioni IT hanno utilizzato IaaS per liberare il personale da compiti ripetitivi quali la manutenzione dell’hardware e l’aggiornamento del software. Ma non sempre sono stati sfruttati i possibili vantaggi correlati al processo di adozione. Quasi un quarto delle aziende (il 22%) sostiene che se dovesse ripetere l’implementazione di IaaS, utilizzerebbe strumenti per la migrazione automatica. Oracle Ravello, ad esempio, permette alle aziende di trasferire automaticamente i carichi di lavoro dai data center esistenti alle piattaforme cloud senza costose o rischiose modifiche.
Per avere successo nella realtà competitiva di oggi, le aziende devono svincolarsi dai limiti imposti dall’infrastruttura IT legacy. L’acquisto di hardware e la manutenzione di enormi data center per l’esecuzione dei sistemi informatici appartengono al passato: la gestione e la manutenzione dell’infrastruttura sono semplicemente troppo costose.
Un recente sondaggio di Gartner ha rivelato che oltre l’80% dei CIO ritiene che l’Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) sia un’opzione perseguibile e il 10% degli stessi già la considera la scelta predefinita per l’infrastruttura. L’utilizzo di un’infrastruttura con un modello di servizio elastico e con pagamento in base al consumo non solo riduce i costi e le preoccupazioni, ma consente inoltre alle organizzazioni IT di dedicarsi all’innovazione per favorire la crescita aziendale.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
A recent Gartner survey found that more than 80 percent of CIOs consider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to be a viable option and 10 percent of CIOs already consider it to be their default choice for infrastructure. Utilizing an infrastructure with an elastic, pay-as-you-go service model not only reduces costs and worries, but also frees IT organizations to innovate in ways that will enhance business growth.
In the past, companies have been able to adopt and utilize a business-as-usual IT infrastructure and get away with it. They purchased hardware to keep pace with data growth, managed multiple servers, and hired an ever-increasing workforce to ensure their organization succeeded. But with diminishing budgets and fewer resources, these institutions can no longer afford to carry out each and every one of these processes to maintain their IT infrastructure.
IT is in the midst of one of its major transformations. IDC has characterized this paradigm shift as the “third platform,” driven by innovations in cloud, big data, mobility and social technologies. Progressive enterprises are seeking to leverage third-platform technologies to create new business opportunities and competitive differentiation through new products and services, new business models and new ways of engaging customers.
Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical business analyses that provide far greater insight into the business and how to maximize results. However, these high-value applications that use the latest software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure, as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand more compute resources than legacy applications. Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization.
Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.

As organizations seek to extract more strategic value from their data, many are starting to view data governance as an enabler of insight rather than an impediment to its creation. This report explores a leading approach to data governance and the impact it can have on today’s most data-rich organizations.
For data-driven businesses, cloud can be a boon. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without an investment in local hardware infrastructure, but what does that mean to information trust and governance? When data comes from cloud-based sources, IT needs a plan for data integration and security.
Download this insightful white paper and learn the four key priorities you must consider when developing your IT strategy to promote good hybrid information governance. Learn the blend of process, organizational and technical enablers that will allow you to move to a hybrid environment with speed and confidence.
It’s no longer enough just to convert—to stay competitive, you need to turn prospects into lifelong fans of your brand. But with commerce channels and buying behavior changing so fast, we all know that’s easier said than done.
What were once communications channels are now becoming commerce channels, with consumers making purchases on their TVs, on Twitter, and by text message. In the past, commerce and content data and experiences sat in their own silos. Those days are gone.
The global beauty company provides an exhilarating example of the power of context-driven commerce. When customers can rely on brands to achieve the outcomes that are important to them, brand owners can shift their focus from nonstop customer acquisition to long-term customer engagement.
The Sitecore Experience Platform and the underlying Sitecore Experience Database are foundation technologies for IT organizations wanting to implement context-driven commerce environments that function elegantly today and into the future. Sitecore puts an end to digital retailers’ obsession with cart abandonment, replacing it with opportunities to delight customers with personal, meaningful commerce offers.
Der Eintritt von NetApp in den Hyperkonvergenzmarkt ist seit Langem überfällig, und die Lösung wird bei den wichtigsten Kunden des Unternehmens große Wellen schlagen. IDC ist der Meinung, dass die Entscheidung von NetApp für die Technologie von SolidFire als Grundlage der HCI beweist, dass es verstärkt auf die neue Generation von Speichertechnologien setzt, die den digitalen Wandel ermöglichen. Die Integration mit Data Fabric zeigt, dass NetApp fähig ist, seine Vision für die hybride Cloud und den Datenverkehr in all seine Lösungen einzubringen, damit Kunden ihre Pläne für eine hybride IT nahtlos vorantreiben können. Schließlich deuten die flexiblen Skalierungsmöglichkeiten darauf hin, dass NetApp nicht einfach in aller Eile ein „Me-too“ Produkt auf den Markt bringen, sondern vielmehr ernsthaft auf die kostenbezogenen Herausforderungen eingehen wollte, denen sich HCI-Kunden gegenübersehen.
HR processes are changing. And, with the global skills crisis, HR Directors are struggling to attract and retain the best talent. Their departments are in flux, and 77% of organisations report a perceived lack of strategic value from HR.* If you’re going to win the war for talent, your organisation will need to make a radical change. It must transform its HR and become a People Company, utilising people data and analytics to make decisions based on real evidence. This will improve the way you interact with current and future employees, providing great workforce experiences. The result will be a more committed and engaged workforce, and increased interest in joining your organisation. From a business perspective too, you’ll benefit through higher levels of productivity, efficiency and improved performance and engagement.
