HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

A consortium of Global 2000 companies founded a joint
authentication service provider to keep up with innovation at
competitive Fintech companies. The new provider developed a
mobile authentication app to maintain a high degree of mobile
security without losing customers to UX-focused Fintech
companies. As peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions grew rapidly,
so did the false rejections and need for manual review. In
evaluating security vendors for a more cohesive and frictionless
solution, the provider selected BehavioSec for its enterprise
grade capabilities to be deployed on-premise and integrate
with existing legacy risk management systems.
As ride-hailing, e-commerce and food delivery services continue to grow, the value of curbside space is increasingly apparent. Though valuable and potentially lucrative, its original design is failing to live up to the needs of today's society. The demand for curbside space is growing, but the asset itself is fixed.
To reduce urban congestion, ensure optimal roadway performance management, encourage new mobility solutions and facilitate on-demand delivery efficiency, it is vital that the curb be better utilized.
In this eBook, gain insight from six visionaries and thought leaders with a stake in the landscape of urban mobility as they share how to better optimize curbside space.
A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain

Component Content Management: A New Paradigm in Intelligent Content Services
While technology has changed the world, the way that companies manage information has inherently stayed the same. The advent of near-ubiquitous connectivity among applications and machines has resulted in a data deluge that will fundamentally alter the landscape of content management. From mobile devices to intelligent machines, the volume and sophistication of data have surpassed the ability of humans to manage it with outdated methods of collection, processing, storage, and analysis. The opportunity afforded by the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has stimulated the market to search for a better way to capture, classify, and analyze this data in its journey to digital transformation (DX). The paradigm of document-based information management has proven to be a challenge in finding, reusing, protecting, and extracting value from data in real time. Legacy systems may struggle with fragmented information

A recent Gartner survey found that 80% of respondents using public cloud are using more than one cloud service provider (CSP). As databases move to the cloud, the database management service vendor landscape is shrinking, and data governance and integration are becoming more complex.
Are you ready for the impact of multicloud deployments on data and analytics strategies in your own organization?
This new Gartner report on multicloud and intercloud data management provides an impact appraisal along with recommendations for leaders planning to incorporate multiple CSPs into their data management strategies.

An introduction to the Forrester analyst report: How to Capture the Benefits of Microservice Design
There has always been a relationship between an application and the platform and services which
run it. For a long time, that relationship was very tight and encompassed a lot of areas related to the
application design, from the language the application could be written in to administrative behaviors
like monitoring and logging, even things like transaction management, frontend UI development, or
In a sense, the application platform was just another design consideration for the application. A few
years ago, as significant changes in platform technology like cloud, containers, and virtual machines
started rolling out, the primary emphasis for CTOs and application architects was on how to move to
those platforms. The platform choice was a major part of the application. The focus was — one way or
another — getting into “the cloud.”

Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie
streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run
its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management.
Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different

A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
To meet the challenges of intense competition and increasing customer demands, companies must tightly align their IT service management with business issues and priorities. This paper outlines the maturity steps involved in the progression towards proactive Business Service Management (BSM) and explains how ASG's metaCMDB helps secure its seamless adoption.
Improved business productivity often requires more efficient IT and more efficient IT cannot be achieved without a better understanding of the way business services are run and delivered. Configuration Management Databases (CMDBs) have emerged as a central component for Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and business service management (BSM).
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
Configuration Management is at the heart of the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) and forms the foundation for Business Service Management (BSM). In fact, it is safe to say that neither the ITIL IT Service Management (ITSM) processes nor the BSM functions that leverage ITSM can be efficiently carried out without accurate configuration and dependency information.
There are success stories of businesses that have implemented Business Service Management (BSM) with well-documented, bottom-line results. What do these organizations know that their discouraged counterparts don't?

Managing talent and how that talent performs is a high-stakes arena that takes up a lot of time and resources. How are your competitors tackling these issues?
Every HR department is trying to find more efficient ways to provide service to employees, from answering routine requests to dealing with complaints and whistleblowing. For efficiency, employee satisfaction, and legal compliance, it’s important to track, monitor, and respond to all these employee actions. The consequences of having complaints and allegations fall through the cracks are two-fold: employees feel ignored, and lawsuits become more likely and harder to defend. As a result, many organizations are buying or building systems to manage this important tracking process.
To find out who’s doing what and what’s working in the real world, BLR conducted a Case Management Survey in February 2016.
