Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed.
Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable.
In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

Marketers face a unique challenge to allocate resources across a variety of tactics to target key audiences that need their product or service – with limited information on what combination of products or services will have the optimum impact, which target audience members are ideal fits, and what allocations will provide the best return on investment to the organization. Healthcare has its own myriad of challenges, including many local, regional, and national options for consumers, service line variations, and disparate demographics. The good news is that there is an emerging understanding of digital and multichannel marketing, and ample opportunity to define best practices, systematically calculate marketing effectiveness and return on marketing investment (ROMI), and use technology and data to create great business outcomes.
Like most IT teams, LIAI technicians are committed to optimizing staff productivity. With the organization steadily growing and IT demands increasing, maintaining this commitment proved challenging. They needed began to minimize the burden of administrative duties and maximize IT efficiency.
This report reviews all-industry benchmarks created using data from all participating companies 4,600, in the NAVEX Global database and should serve as an excellent starting point for companies wishing to assess their organization’s reporting data—and help equip them to make informed decisions about programme effectiveness, potential problem areas and necessary resource allocations.
Behind FICO® Collections Optimisation is a sophisticated decision modeling capability that quanti es the impact of an organisation’s business decisions and actions on customer outcomes such as revenue, loss and profit.
Time and resource allocation for language programs
has been shrinking while the need for multilingualism
only grows. It is critical that our students remain
competitive on the global playing field. As the
benefits of a multilingual society become clearer,
parents insist that language learning is important for
their children’s future success.
However, our current education system still lacks the
resources to provide all children the opportunity to
develop the skills that will prepare them to succeed in
an interconnected world. Global competence and
language skills are no longer just nice to have—they

An Intelligent Roadmap for Capacity Planning
Many organizations apply overly simplistic principles to determine requirements for compute capacity in their virtualized data centers. These principles are based on a resource allocation model which takes the total amount of memory and CPU allocated to all virtual machines in a compute cluster, and assumes a defined level of over provisioning (e.g. 2:1, 4:1, 8:1, 12:1) in order to calculate the requirement for physical resources.
Often managed in spreadsheets or simple databases, and augmented by simple alert-based monitoring tools, the resource allocation model does not account for actual resource consumption driven by each application workload running in the operational environment, and inherently corrodes the level of efficiency that can be driven from the underlying infrastructure.
This white paper explores why today's executives still lack the relevant information or data quality to make decisions in a timely manner. Inside, learn about the biggest decisions-making challenges facings modern businesses and three keys to achieving better data-driven decisions.

This paper briefly traces some of the challenges involved with IP address distribution over the past two decades, to the current adoption of DHCP as the dynamic protocol of choice for pain-free management of network resources. Integral to the theme of secure yet reliable network administration is the integration of DNS and DHCP into a single network device called the Adonis DNS/DHCP Appliance which ensures that traditional barriers to secure and effective resource allocations are overcome with an efficient yet easy-to-use solution that enhances enterprise information security.
"Virtualization has changed the data center dynamic from static to fluid. While workloads used to be confined to the hardware on which they were installed, workloads today flow from host to host based on administrator-defined rules, as well as in reaction to changes in the host environment. The fluidic nature of the new data center has brought challenges to resource allocation; find out how your organization can stay ahead of the curve.

If your organization is not predictably successful in technology projects, there is likely an issue in requirements. CIO?s must take action and own requirements maturity improvement. CIOs are in the best position to sell requirements maturity improvement to the organization and can greatly help the process by effectively communicating required actions, and ensuring a suitable resources allocation. There are 6 things your CIO needs to know to help him/her in their role of requirements change advocate.
Virtualization has changed data centers from static to flowing, and this fluidity has brought challenges to resource allocation. Find out how your organization can stay ahead of the curve.

Budgeting is part of a larger, closed-loop process called "performance management." Performance management is a holistic approach to the way organizations direct and manage resources to achieve objectives. In the context of performance management, budgeting's central role is to support execution through the allocation of resources to the activities that drive value.
