As an executive-level guide to consumerism in clinical integration, A New Meeting Place offers critical insights into healthcare consumerism as it relates to convenience of care, technology integration, and pricing competition and transparency.
Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table.
And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same.
Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact
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.
The challenges facing industrial companies grow more daunting by the day. Globalization, energy markets that change in real time, variations in materials and prices, aging of the industrial workforce, inability to attract the next generation of Talent, and difficult regulatory pressures have all contributed to an extremely stressful industrial business environment. Fortunately, the right automation system can now offer cutting-edge packaging solutions for meeting at least three of these challenges.
Many retailers have responded with a largely outdated omnichannel approach, focusing on integrating the physical and digital channels they use to interact with customers, when the problem is actually inside the business. Today's customers will remain loyal only if a brand offers them transparency and superior quality products while actively engaging with them to build a relationship they value. Meeting those needs has nothing to do with offering another physical, digital, or mobile channel and everything to do with running the business in a way that is customer-first and customer-centric.

CIOs today face a delicate, difficult balancing act between meeting business objectives and securing information. Markets are becoming more global, product life cycles are shrinking, and profit margins are declining. Organisations need their finance, human resource, and planning systems to be agile and able to change as quickly as the business.
System complexity is increasing, though. Enterprises deploy more applications to more endpoints than ever before. Hackers have evolved from isolated sociopaths into highly organised groups relying on leading-edge technology. Finally, IT budgets are growing, albeit slowly: International Data Corp. (IDC) expects budgets to increase 3.4% in 2017. So many CIOs are struggling to find the resources needed to ward off attacks.
For many companies, language barriers increase as business
globalization becomes the norm rather than the exception.
Perhaps a call center agent cannot handle customer contact
in an unfamiliar language. Or a manager travels to a face-toface
meeting only to sit across a conference table from clients
wanting to speak in their own native language. Even within
your organization, teams across global geographies must
collaborate to achieve collective goals, but language barriers
often stand in their way.
Meanwhile, HR leaders are tasked with recruiting and
retaining top talent and L&D managers must align programs
with business goals. Each of these scenarios and areas of
responsibility have something in common: A clear need for
company-sponsored training to develop employees’ language
proficiency so they can engage successfully with colleagues
and customers anywhere.
Thousands of learners were surveyed about the impact of
language training with Rosetta Stone® business solutions.1

The U.S. spends more on health care than any country in the world – to the tune of $7,290 per capita per year. Yet this massive spend does not equate to high quality care for Americans. As a result, $300 billion is wasted every year.

This white paper reveals:
• How low-quality care affects both the cost of care as well as patient outcomes
• Five best practices in helping employees identify high-value providers

Every organization strives for a workforce that is engaged, inspired, and motivated to perform at its best day in and day out. But what is the reality?
According to Gallup, only 13 percent of all employees worldwide today are engaged in their jobs — an alarming statistic given the importance of the workforce in fueling growth and meeting other key enterprise goals. Employees are typically an organization’s most vital (and expensive) asset, and when they are disengaged and/or disenfranchised, the ripple effects across the business can impact your profitability and branding.
In fact, each employee generation — and each individual — has unique needs and expectations regarding work. So how do you engage and inspire them? It requires a creative and differentiated approach that accounts for the unique characteristics and requirements of each generation.
Fortunately, new human capital management (HCM) technologies are available today that can help you optimize employee engagement across a

Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
