All of these elements of growing connectivity have the potential to significantly increase productivity, streamline operations and enhance service levels to citizens and stakeholders. But these benefits are only one side of the story. The added complexity of the new eGovernment environment also creates many new challenges, as government agencies search for effective ways to secure and control access to the rapidly growing number and variety of gateways to their ecosystems.
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.

Selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) software often poses a challenge for many businesses in the manufacturing industry. With so many options out there, it’s difficult to break down each potential application and choose the one that’s the best fit for your business.
This Gartner report explains how ERP selection teams can come to a consensus and establish an understanding of all options by jointly populating and prioritizing a hierarchical, weighted ERP evaluation model.
A structured evaluation model helps put all the cards on the table by explaining and justifying to internal stakeholders, external auditors, and vendors how and why an ERP software decision was made.
Read the Gartner report and establish your own ERP evaluation model to see if the Epicor ERP solution is the right fit for your manufacturing business.
While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare).
While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered.
This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right
stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure,
compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.

In considering the four principal options of data center modernization, keep in mind that each option need not be treated as a separate and distinct approach. Data center stakeholders may want to combine options in order to better accommodate a particular migration timeline. Or cautious executives may want to simply dabble with the outsourcing option by piloting only a few select applications while still maintaining a core corporate data center. The key critical success factor is the recognition that data center modernization is not a one-time fi x, but rather a critical piece of an ongoing strategy to better service customers.
Cloud computing no longer is simply the most dominant topic of conversation among the IT community and its business stakeholders: It is now a gigantic marketplace that is reshaping how IT services are provided and, more important, is helping organizations become more agile, responsive and efficient.
Freeform Dynamics Executive Briefing Guide - Orchestrating the DevOps Tool Chain: An enterprise-level approach to continuous delivery.
Dale Vile says that business stakeholders are increasingly looking for faster and more frequent delivery of high-impact, high-quality output from IT teams. DevOps is an approach designed to enable the rapid and continuous delivery of value to the business to support the needs of the digital world, he adds. Open source software tools can help organizations adopt this DevOps approach but can cause efficiency, complexity and scalability issues, so Dale believes it is helpful to create a consistent orchestration layer using an enterprise class release automation solution.
For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.
Mobile is the new normal for users to connect and consume content, you need to consider apps, mobile integration,security, analytics, development tools, life-cycle management, various mobile stakeholders, and the overall enterprise mobile ecosystem.
Complex hybrid environments can make it difficult to track interdependencies, increasing the risk of disrupting critical business services. In this research paper by EMA, you’ll learn how application discovery and dependency mapping can help you:
• Meet granular targets for availability, cost, and time-to-revenue for cloud services
• Accelerate mean time to repair (MTTR) while communicating better with stakeholders
• Manage even the most complex hybrid environments more efficiently and effectively
• Understand the impact of proposed changes and potential security risks to guide decision-making

Not long ago, the biggest concern for IT decision makers considering moving workloads to the cloud was security. That’s no longer the case. Today, the main obstacle to cloud adoption is different but familiar: the pain of migrating data.
Traditional data migration causes major headaches:
• Hours or days of downtime while servers replicate and stakeholders verify functionality
• Data loss and migration failures due to inadequate tools and inability to test
• Key internal resources diverted from strategic initiatives
