Progressive retailers have shifted to integrated store lifecycle (SLM) systems enabled by Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) to provide a seamless integration of all phases of the entire real estate lifecycle process from market planning; through site selection, store design and construction; to day-to-day operations such as lease administration and facility management.
Software Asset Management associated costs have once again risen as a high priority for IT, and rightfully so. This paper offers information on technology that manages software assets cost efficiently, cost effectively in a low risk environment.
Enterprise Marketing Management, or EMM, is a software
technology solution for marketing organizations that provides a comprehensive marketing platform for managing customer and prospect interactions throughout the customer lifecycle. Before introducing the IBM® Enterprise Marketing Management suite, here are some recent observations about today’s marketing environment that set the context in which IBM is seeking to meet the needs of marketers.
The practice of marketing is challenging these days because of the rise of the “empowered customer.” Today’s customers are well-informed, use other people as their primary information source, interact with companies through multiple channels, touch points and media, and want (but rarely get) a superior customer experience—and have outlets for venting frustration when they don’t get what they want.
Transform the way that your global and distributed teams work together to build software. Make software delivery more collaborative and productive using IBM Rational® software solutions for collaborative application lifecycle management (ALM), powered by IBM® Rational® Jazz. This interactive demonstration, presented by Carolyn Pampino, illustrates the five imperatives for effective collaborative application lifecycle management.

Have you heard about the DevOps revolution? What’s all the buzz about? Find out more in this report by Kurt Bittner, Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. Even if full continuous delivery is not your goal, proceeding toward it can help increase reliability, reduce risks, and decrease costs. As Kurt shares, “The revolution is just beginning, but it’s real — and the time to act is now.”
How do I determine the potential return on investment for improving my application development capabilities? If you have ever asked that question, this study, "The Total Economic Impact of The IBM Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM)", can help. IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to interview IBM CLM clients and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) an organization may realize by deploying the solution for CLM in order to increase communication process efficiencies and time savings.
Today, the retail industry faces daunting challenges as a result
of current uncertain economic conditions, conflicting market
influences and changes to financial reporting standards. Traditional point solutions utilized in the various phases of the real estate life cycle are no longer adequate to meet these challenges. This whitepaper examines the benefits of implementing life cycle management solutions in the retail environment.
This case study examines a European manufacturer that successfully moved from an ad-hoc workplace organization to a strategic organization over a period of five years, saving $19 million in 2009 in addition to a 400 percent return on investment over five years (from 2004 - 2009).
The organization moved from a decentralized siloed group of regional facilities and real estate organizations to a fully-centralized and matrixed organization, enabling close coordination and alignment with the regional business units.
Consolidating data center servers through virtualization is integral to successful IT systems design. Read the white paper and see how IBM PowerVM on POWER7 offers higher ratios of server virtualization than VMware on comparable Intel x86 platforms. This enables superior performance, greater operational savings and improved efficiency.
