Today in healthcare the communication infrastructure is the backbone in IT. New reimbursement models are amplifying the need for care coordination, and communication between multiple departments, constituencies, and workflows is required. High-performing healthcare systems are adopting enterprise communication solutions to eliminate silos of information, improve patient care during critical situations, and make the most of their IT budget.
Even as the move to electronic health records (EHR) progresses in earnest, there are a myriad of challenges involving legacy data systems. Chief among these challenges is the cost of maintaining obsolete systems solely for the patient information they contain. When up to 70% of a typical IT budget is spent on maintaining the current IT infrastructure and application portfolio, organizations have little left to invest in much-needed innovation. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Survey, many organizations are still adjusting after their migration to a new EHR system. Hospitals need to get a better grasp on all forms and sources of data that they have—and the data they don’t yet have—so that the right information can be delivered to the right individual, and in the right context, at the point of care.
While the legal requirements to provide employees with paid or unpaid leave for family and medical issues become more complex, the leave-management tools and services available to employers continue to expand.
Employers with the budget to do so are outsourcing—often to a single vendor—leave-management tasks for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state and local leave ordinances, according to recently released findings from a survey of 1,203 employers conducted in 2017. Employers with the resources to manage leave internally are increasingly using technology to assist them.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.
Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.
With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
When it comes to effectively and efficiently protecting growing volumes of data, midsized organizations face unique
challenges. That is because they live in a world of constraints that are both operational and budgetary in nature. Cloud
disaster recovery offers new options for these organizations—they can optimize their data protection economics by
integrating on-premises protection solutions with cloud-based backup and recovery methods. Dell EMC’s cloud-ready
solutions, particularly its Integrated Data Protection Appliances with native cloud extension capabilities, along with its Data
Protection Software working in conjunction with its Data Domain backup storage appliances, provide cloud disaster
recovery with flexible features. These solutions enhance operational efficiency and provide midsized organizations with
clear economic and operational benefits.

The rapid pace of change in attitudes to IaaS underlines how quickly it has become a key part of enterprise IT. Even in the past three months, adoption levels and positive attitudes toward IaaS have grown.

As a creative leader, your job involves a lot more than bringing concepts to life. You’ve got a team to manage, and a pile of clients to keep happy. You’ve got content to ideate, assets to build, and campaigns to manage— and it all needs to be delivered on time and on brand. Ideally, your team would concept and shoot every asset to perfectly merge imagery and message for every deliverable. But business deadlines and budgets don’t always allow time for careful creativity—and 62 percent of creative marketers say creating original imagery requires time and effort their team can’t afford.
