The annual Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® identifies U.S. hospitals with the best overall performance across multiple organizational metrics, including clinical, operational, and financial. The ability of some hospitals to adapt as the industry is changing demonstrates leadership as the winners set the standards their peers seek to achieve. Study projections indicate that if the new national benchmarks of high performance were achieved by all hospitals in the United States, nearly 126,500 additional lives could be saved, almost 109,000 additional patients could be complication-free, and $1.8 billion in inpatient costs could be saved.
The Tenth Annual State of the Network Global Study
focuses a lens on the network team’s role in security
investigations. Results indicate that 88 percent of
network teams are now spending time on security
issues. In fact, out of 1,035 respondents, nearly
3 out of 4 spend up to 10 hours per week working
exclusively on these types of problems - in addition
to managing network upgrades, SDN, cloud, and big
When it comes to technology adoption, both cloud and
100 GbE deployment continue to grow aggressively.
VoIP adoption is closing in on 60 percent and
software-defined networking (SDN) is projected to
cross the halfway mark, indicating compounding
network complexity amidst the ongoing struggle to
ID security threats.
With growth comes change and some trends
identified in this year’s survey include a rise in email
and browser-based malware attacks (63 percent)
and an increase in sophistication (52 percent). Nearly
1 in 3 also report a surge in DDoS attacks, signaling
Performing PC’s are critical to businesses’ productivity and competitiveness, but hardware refresh is often extended well beyond its due date as IT departments’ resources are stretched or diverted to more urgent business critical projects. PC as a service (PCaaS) has recently emerged as a new model for IT procurement and management, and according to IDC’s latest PCaaS survey, satisfaction among early adopters in Europe is strong.
Since it first started providing air passenger services in 2000, JetBlue has been
innovating. It was the first airline to embrace dot.com transactions and electronic
ticketing, and continues to churn out industry-leading inventions as described
here. When business needs changed in 2014, JetBlue embarked on very robust
digital transformation based on TIBCO integration and analytics technology—and
the company was recognized with the first-ever TIBCO Trailblazer Impact award
for the incredible effect this project was having on its strategic differentiation. In
this case study, Director of Shared Development Services Andi Azzolina describes
the objectives, initiatives, capabilities, and achievements making up JetBlue’s
journey towards becoming the most caring travel provider in the world.
The use of SaaS applications within an organization is the new normal. There is
a good chance that just your marketing department is using more than 10 SaaS
products, which is reflected in the amount you are spending on SaaS. According
to Gartner, the 2015 worldwide market for SaaS software application sales was
$33.4 billion, with projections to double that to $67.2 billion by 2019.1 Clearly,
your integration needs are changing. SaaS applications, as well as mobile
traffic, social networks, IoT, suppliers, partners, and customer channels are new
integration points that will need to be captured in your business processes.
This paper presents five principles for successful hybrid integrations.

obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst
for transactions across all markets.
In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment
technology is enabling businesses to sell products
and services to consumers that had previously been
out of reach.
In developed markets, it has made the process of
purchasing products and services even simpler.
PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment
solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in
payment volume throughout 2015, and now has
188 million active registered user accounts across
the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile
payments will account for more than $210 billion in
transactions by 2019.
Mobile payment technology is a step forward in
the process of connecting businesses to the people
they are serving. However, some merchants will find
themselves miles behind their competitors by the
time the transition to mobile payments is complete.
The reason? A failure to implement the correct
mobile payment strategy.

"Agile" software development is an increasingly popular development process for producing software in a flexible and iterative manner that can deliver value to the enterprise faster, reduce project risk and allow adaptation to changes more quickly.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management.
The latest version of CA Project & Portfolio Management facilitates core financial activities with the ease and familiarity of a spreadsheet.
Two years ago, CA began to reevaluate how organizations were leveraging their project and portfolio management solutions. Our goal was to identify ways CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) could better serve every user.CA PPM 15.3 simplifies the job of the financial manager with Microsoft Excel® -like functionality, embedded communication and collaboration features, and direct links to the industry’s most popular reporting and business intelligence tools. Today, CA PPM provides financial managers with the ability to visualize, manage and take advantage of data like never before—all from inside the solution.
As cycles accelerate and timelines shorten, projects are being recognized—by necessity— as the delivery arm for strategy. In this environment, anything less than real-time access to real-time project data is too slow, because businesses need to know where they’re heading, not just where they’ve been. CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM 15.3) has added new capabilities to support project, financial and resource management across individual initiatives and entire portfolios. We’ve also built new, embedded BI capabilities that make powerful data and insights more accessible to everyone.
Project portfolio management (PPM) software suites have evolved significantly in just the last few years.
No longer simply straightforward task–consolidation tools, they have become powerful enterprise
solutions capable of everything from investment planning and management to collaboration and
workflow automation across concurrent initiatives.
Many of the largest, most successful organizations in the world use CA Project
& Portfolio Management (CA PPM) as the cornerstone of their business intelligence
(BI) strategy. This allows CA to keep a finger directly on the pulse of the market—to

The pace of business is accelerating. The difference between market leaders
and everyone chasing them is often their ability to make decisions faster
than their competition and to make them based on a more comprehensive
picture of what’s happening. Integrating modern BI tools with predictive
performance metrics into a modern PPM suite creates a game-changing
insight engine that can help your organization level-up.
