Manual processing of vendor invoices presents a roadblock to the success of your accounts payable (AP) department and overall business objectives. As you look to automation to get your company on the right track, consider this guidebook your map along the 7-step path to AP automation success.
The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.

This report from RTInsights looks at how business process automation can provide structure and control for digital transformation initiatives, disruptive technology adoption, and application modernization, from cloud-native application to integration.
"It’s important to understand the role that an Identity platform plays in modern enterprise IT. In the past, Identity and Access Management systems were an afterthought. They were put into place after making many of your other architectural decisions. With the move to web, cloud and mobile, IAM has become a key variable in hardware and software deployment, as well as in operational strategy.
This webinar will reveal why leveraging an IAM platform, built as a single cloud-based platform for security across on-prem and cloud, can solve these issues."
In today’s increasingly high-tech and efficiency driven business landscape, internal processes such as accounts payable (AP) are being looked to as prime candidates for modernization.
Traditional, paper-based methods of vendor invoice processing are associated with higher costs, lower visibility and longer processing times — all barriers that ultimately impede business progress and the ability to gain a competitive advantage.
The purpose of this white paper is to explore the specific challenges faced by companies using manual processing methods while shedding light on the key features and proven benefits of automation.

This white paper examines key approaches to application modernization and evolution for certain IBM mainframe applications with long life spans. It discusses the challenges of legacy applications and the available modernization approaches to handle these challenges. The paper also analyzes in some depth specific approaches that keep application logic largely intact or allow it to evolve incrementally and productively.

In a world where speed matters, businesses need agility and flexibility to quickly modify their processes and business practices to stay competitive. Historically, large companies have hampered process agility by locking themselves into outdated systems, processes, and ways of working, but a variety of factors – including modernization and customer expectations – are increasingly playing a role in driving companies toward business process transformation, an emerging topic in the realm of process excellence.
This white paper, based on the Process Excellence Network’s, “5 Ways to Transform Business Processes to Optimize Agility,” by Rob Speck, Vice President of Services at K2, focuses on what
causes and drives process innovation, includes examples of organizations that have done this, and analyzes their return on investment (ROI).
Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.
IT teams today are under pressure to build on-premises environments that mimic the agility and flexibility of public cloud services. It’s a challenge for IT teams to choose the right technology to invest in for servicing on-premises workloads. With high automation and minimal configuration or management, composable infrastructure fast tracks IT modernization by aligning IT delivery and operations, giving seamless access to dynamic, automated resources that can react in real-time.
This report, which is the vision report of the mobile app development playbook for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals, focuses on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
This paper focuses on the benefits of a queryable data store and big data technologies available to support data warehouse modernization. Read the paper to understand how data can be stored and optimized with Hadoop.
In this inforgraphic, we are going to show you the possibilities with modernised, optimized data infrastructure. In doing so, we aim to bring you ideas about how you can bring your own data-driven business vision to life, focusing on the outcomes that matter most to you.
In essence, we will be discussing five main industries and the possibilities for modernized data infrastructure. We will be displaying how Banking and Financial Services, Telecommunications, manufacturing, healthcare and retail can use data, analytics and automation to optimize their business, therefore bringing about a competitive edge which previous appeared unimaginable. Using data correctly, most importantly building proper data infrastructures, can be the driving force behind obtaining a competitive edge.
Data is your story. And it’s our story, too.

This research brief begins with an outline of the major costs to consider when making an investment in analytics, the second section presents five modernization stages that analytics hardware/software have experienced, and the final section finishes with considerations when calculating total cost of ownership of the analytics ecosystem.
No matter the vintage or sophistication of your organization’s data warehouse (DW) and the environment around it, it probably needs to be modernized in one or more ways. That’s because DWs and requirements for them continue to evolve. Many users need to get caught up by realigning the DW environment with new business requirements and technology challenges. Once caught up, they need a strategy for continuous modernization.
