Departments of roads and highways around the world have begun to implement technology solutions to improve the safety of their highways, lessen congestion and manage traffic more efficiently. Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), as these systems are known, require reliable, secure and scalable networks to link cameras, sensors, signage, signaling and vehicles to remote data centers and operation centers.
These networks will be deployed in harsh environments and will pose their own unique challenges to operate, maintain and manage.
In this application note, we will present the unique requirements of ITS networks and discuss how AlcatelLucent Enterprise products and technologies not only meet today’s ITS requirements, but are designed to grow and scale to meet tomorrow’s as well.
Providing an effective teaching and learning environment is the primary goal of all educational institutions.
Traditionally, administrators concentrated on providing faculty with the tools to properly deliver the curriculum and structuring the learning process to sufficiently engage students. But, violent incidents over the past decade along with government regulations have put pressure on administrators to focus on the physical security and safety of staff, faculty, and students.

The legal industry is well past the days when scrawled notes in a day planner constituted time recording. The business of law has changed, requiring that time entries comply with client requirements and firm objectives. We believe the path forward is a new concept that we call “compliant time”: a way to streamline timekeeping and improve time-capture accuracy while also ensuring adherence to OCGs.This ebook explores the gaps and inefficiencies in the current stateat most law firms and shows how compliant time can help resolve these issues. Insights into how current processes impact and inhibit internal law firm stakeholder objectives reveal why firms simply must find new approaches. Declining realization rates, competitive market forces, and lawyer attraction/retention challenges are all factors that point to a need for change in time and billing technology.
New researchconducted by Intapp found that, while Mid Law firms attest that data-driven strategies are highly important in all areas of the client lifecycle, a significant gap exists as to how or whether they are currently deploying enabling technologies such as intelligent automation. Read the ebook to discover the full breadth of this gap, and learn best practices for how you can use technology to drive growth in the client-empowered era.

Like all areas of the finance team, the accounts payable department is tasked with working smarter and doing more with less. The challenge is that many organizations are drowning in paper invoices, spreadsheets and manual AP processes.
A digital transformation can create more automated workflows, easier tracking of payments, and more overall accountability and visibility. In addition, the data collected can support a more predictable cash flow and a stronger negotiating position with vendors.
This white paper will examine AP’s role in reimagining the entire finance process as part of the purchase-to-pay cycle, including:
• Avoiding costs of processing paper invoices and payments
• The role of the CFO in mitigating risks of manual processes
• The value of AP integration with e-payable solutions
Customer service is, was and always will be a top priority for companies.

In this ePaper, you’ll learn how order processing automation helps you:
• Create a more engaged, empowered staff
• Eliminate low-value tasks like data entry

The discipline of data quality assurance ensures that data is "fit for purpose" in the context of existing business operations, analytics and emerging digital business scenarios. It covers much more than just technology. It includes program management, roles, organizational structures, use cases and processes (such as those for monitoring, reporting and remediating data quality issues). It is also linked to broader initiatives in the field of enterprise information management (EIM), including information governance and master data management (MDM)

How can you open your analytics program to all
types of programming languages and all levels of
users? And how can you ensure consistency across
your models and your resulting actions no matter
where they initiate in the company?
With today’s analytics technologies, the conversation
about open analytics and commerical analytics is no
longer an either/or discussion. You can now combine
the benefits of SAS and open source analytics
technology systems within your organization.
As we think about the entire analytics life cycle, it’s
important to consider data preparation, deployment,
performance, scalability and governance, in addition
to algorithms. Within that cycle, there’s a role for
open source and commercial analytics.
For example, machine learning algorithms can
be developed in SAS or Python, then deployed in
real-time data streams within SAS Event Stream
Processing, while also integrating with open systems
through Java and C APIs, RESTful web services,
Apache Kafka, HDFS and more.
Digital transformation is poised to change the supply chain more
profoundly than any other functional area and more dramatically than at
any point in its history in terms of driving efficiency and resiliency to
disruption. In the context of the challenges facing supply chains, both now
and in the future, it becomes clear that the old ways of working will not
suffice and that even best-in-class performance today is unlikely to be good
enough in the future. It is the view of IDC that the supply chain must
become a "thinking" supply chain, one that is intimately connected to all
data sources, enabled with comprehensive and fast analytics, openly
collaborative through cloud-based commerce networks, conscious of
cyberthreats, and cognitively interwoven. According to IDC supply chain research, technology is emerging as a prime
driver of change, particularly artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
