Computing environments have evolved to enable users to be more productive and IT to be more agile. And yet attackers have evolved their methods too, adopting polymorphic malware to evade detection by preventive controls. Meanwhile, IT organizations continue to practice a piecemeal, reactive process of plugging holes, and it’s putting companies at grave risk.
Given the nature of our dynamic computing environments and the sophistication of advanced persistent threats (APTs), a security breach is inevitable. The rise in the number of breaches over the past two years is evidence that no company is immune. As with the Target and Home Depot breaches, it’s possible that malware is already sitting on your corporate network, surreptitiously exfiltrating data as you read this. The question is: How soon will you catch it?
The report includes the facts - and the anecdotal evidence - from real world ISV executives who face the same challenges as you relating to cost control, scalability within growing customers, enterprise mobilization opportunities, and more.
Labeling blood and other samples at the time they are collected improves patient safety and helps prevent a host of problems related to misidentification — including many of the estimated 160,900 adverse events that occur in U.S. hospitals annually because of sample identification errors. There is a strong and growing body of evidence within medical literature that creating specimen identification labels on demand at the patient bedside with a mobile printer can significantly reduce errors. The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) advocate the use of two patient-specific identifiers, such as name and birthdate, whenever taking blood or other samples from a patient, and to label the sample collection container in the presence of the patient.
There’s strong evidence organizations are challenged by the opportunities presented by external information sources such as social media, government trend data, and sensor data from the Internet of Things (IoT). No longer content to use internal databases alone, they see big data resources augmented with external information resources as what they need in order to bring about meaningful change. According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.

Mergers and acquisitions are a fact of life in today's highly competitive global business environment. Unfortunately, up to one third of mergers fail within five years, and as many as 80 percent never live up to their full potential. A great deal of evidence indicates that the ultimate success of mergers and the amount of time it takes to get them on track is determined by how well the cultural aspects of the transition are managed.

An analytics revolution is upon us. Knowledge workers are in short supply, the competition for talent has gone global; turnover is rising; and employee engagement is stagnant at best. How can companies attract, retain, and develop employees who can drive business results and have the data to back up these decisions? A recent survey found more than 80% of respondents said that they needed talent-related insights to make business decisions. Yet most enterprises still base talent decisions on gut feeling. Few can offer analytic evidence to support their hunches. Now, finally, analytics are beginning to drive decisions about people.
