Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

Many energy and natural resource (ENR) companies still rely on static, error prone data sources. Using static data in assumptions that are made on actual production costs, operating capacity, and yields is no longer sufficient to compete successfully in today’s market, a situation made more problematic given that the ENR industry faces reduced market prices for products, increased costs for operations and an onslaught of new competitors.
A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source.
Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.

Safety is a top priority for companies with a fleet of drivers and vehicles. It starts with hiring and screening new employees with safe driving records and qualifications. You may even have written safety policies. However, having visibility into your driver’s whereabouts and their behaviors behind the wheel is key in identifying and preventing risks before it costs your business.
Do you wish that you could sit in the passenger seat of every vehicle in your fleet to watch driver behavior?
With data-driven fleet safety management software from Silent Passenger you can. According to NHTSA, the cause of 94% of collisions is driver error. By monitoring unsafe driver behaviors such as speeding, hard braking, and fast acceleration is key to preserving fleet safety. A reliable fleet safety management software delivers key business intelligence that helps maintain fleet efficiency and productivity on the road.
Improve Safety and Reduce Operational Costs
Running a safer fleet can have a signif
"Power and Cooling", a video presentation, uses vivid computer modeling to illustrate why traditional trial-and-error approaches are inadequate for effective thermal management . Data center cooling costs now account for half of all power-related outlays. And they continue to soar. But cutting these costs - while at the same time improving availability and capacity - is achievable. The trick is knowing how.
Poor quality of care takes a tremendous toll, not just on the system as a whole, but on the patients and their families at the center of that system. It also has a tremendous effect on employers, who already face unsustainable health care costs. When we evaluated one of our customer's claims, we found numerous signs of preventable complications that had cost our client significant amounts, not to mention the toll on the individual. Specifically, we identified the following preventable hospital- acquired conditions (HACs):
• Fourteen instances of stage III and IV pressure ulcers
• Twelve instances of vascular catheter-associated infections
• Thirteen instances of catheter-associated urinary tract infections
• One instance of a patient dying or experiencing a serious disability associated
with intravascular air embolism
• Five instances of foreign objects remaining in patients after a procedure.

Quality is a top priority for any organization, whether it’s defined by reliability and customer satisfaction or conformance with manufacturability specifications. Manufacturers are continually challenged to maintain quality while optimizing the bottom line. Inspection, testing and documentation are critical to this process; however, manual translations are riddled with error, inconsistencies and lost productivity. This article reveals how SOLIDWORKS Inspection software optimizes the inspection process, reduces costs and helps create higher quality products faster than ever.
Insurers have long been plagued by fraud, error, waste, and abuse in health care payments. The costs are huge – amounting to as much as 25 percent of payments made.

Health insurers have long been plagued by issues of fraud, waste, abuse, error and corruption. Taking an enterprise approach to payment integrity – one that combines advanced data management and sophisticated analytics – can help payers detect and prevent fraud; effect positive change in how providers, employees and patients behave; and substantially reduce health care costs. Payers can achieve better outcomes when software support for the core disciplines of payment integrity run on a single platform.
How much are fraud, error, waste and abuse costing your organization? Costs to insurers are huge – as much as 25 percent of payments made. But data management and analytics can save the day. This paper discusses how data can be used to predict and detect loss in all its forms.

Maximizing patient safety and improving the quality of care is the ultimate goal for healthcare providers. Doing so requires staying within regulatory compliance, while also advancing staff retention and meeting fiscal constraints. Barcode technologies provide a “virtual voice” to patients, applications and workflows. Barcoding accomplishes this by laying a solid foundation for enhancing patient identification, providing visibility into medical practices, and driving efficiencies throughout healthcare applications, and is an integral part of electronic medical record (EMR) adoption.

Great customer service hinges on efficient order fulfillment — especially the initial processing of a customer’s order. With thousands of sales orders coming into most large organizations monthly, this mission-critical process can demand a significant portion of customer service representatives’ (CSRs') time and attention in the quest for near-perfect input accuracy and order fulfillment.
But such intensive personnel support isn’t necessary for effective order processing. Great customer service doesn’t have to be cumbersome. Sales order automation can transform customer service and operations which provide quantifiable benefits to the organization.
Automation provides an opportunity to improve order management by:
• Reducing error rates and decreasing costs per order
• Improving process transparency from receipt to archival
• Reducing reshipping and inventory problems

The 401(k) market has rapidly changed.Is your plan up to date?
Since 2012, there have been significant changes in 401(k)s which have created new risks and opportunities for small and midsized business 401(k) plans. With this rapid pace of change, many business owners, and even some small advisors and recordkeepers have not been able to keep up. We’ll summarize both changes to the 401(k) industry and the opportunities that exist for you to improve your plan, specifically in the following 5 areas:
1. Staying compliant with increasingly complicated regulations – New government regulations have increased burdens on companies offering both health plans and 401(k)s. What used to be compliant may no longer work. Furthermore, software has improved, allowing many error prone, manual retirement plan administration tasks to be automated.
2. Increasing plan effectiveness by lowering fees – Since 2009, average 401(k) plan costs have dropped by almost 30%*. While average costs have come down, not al
