Thanks to platform changes in the new versions of Windows, IT can begin treating even traditional PCs like mobile devices, giving users additional capabilities while maintaining control of corporate data. This “new normal” means that users can have a greater choice of devices, more flexibility to work when and where they want, and more modern communications options. And it should lead to a rethinking of the often-adversarial relationship that users have with IT, helping the organization move from reactive to proactive.
This whitepaper evaluates how the landscape for client computing has changed in this new era, while retaining all of the productivity benefits we’ve come to expect from the PC.
Businesses are now competing in an application economy. More than ever, it is the caliber of applications that shapes an organization’s fortunes. Enterprises will increasingly need value-added services that help speed application innovation. Those cloud service providers (CSPs) that address this demand can move up in the value chain, boost differentiation and establish more strategic customer relationships. This white paper details the opportunities, the requirements and the strategies for delivering winning application-centric cloud services in the application economy

This study by Cambridge Judge Business School looks at major transformative innovations across a number of industries in order to develop a predictive model for business transformation that can
help guide leaders in the future. This model is based on what we term “Six Degrees of Innovation” – six matching patterns between trends in technology and market needs that occur with regularity in transformative and successful business models.
Business applications today have become the primary interface between a company and its customers. And, there has simultaneously been tremendous innovation in the area of business intelligence, which can unlock a personalized experience for each and every user - and help support key corporate objectives to increase revenue, strengthen customer loyalty and establish and maintain a high-quality brand in the marketplace. For technology managers, then, this is an exciting time to demonstrate the value of IT to the business. But, the situation also exposes the intense risk we place on our IT applications because they now carry enormous organizational responsibility and significance. Companies that have implemented infrastructure management solutions from CA Technologies Report:
. Service desk calls by as much as 40%
. Reduction of IT management tools in use by 50%
. First-call closure rate improvement by a factor of three
. Mean-time-to-repair improvements of up to 50%
. Staff efficiency improvements of up to 43%
. An average return on investment in nine months or less

In 2008, IDC started to notice the IT industry was at the beginning of a hyper-disruption – one of those massive shifts that comes along every 20–25 years. In 2011, we had seen enough to give it a name: the 3rd Platform. The new era of technology is built on the four technology pillars for innovation and growth: cloud, mobile, big data, and social technologies.

Cyber crime is one of the most innovative businesses in existence today – and make no mistake, it is a business. Cyber criminals are constantly evolving their attack techniques and tools, as cyber security researchers do their best to thwart them. In some ways, you could say that innovation is a core competency in the cyber crime world; perhaps more so even than in legitimate software development.

Not every ERP solution on the market today qualifies as a "next generation" ERP. The depth and breadth of functionality has increased over the past three decades, which makes it harder for a new entrant to compete in the market. The "basics" are table stakes, but they aren't so basic anymore, particularly in the world of manufacturing where Kenandy competes.

Over the past few years, organizations have used a variety of tools and technologies
to enable basic mobile device management (MDM) and essential apps like email and
calendar. But those capabilities are inadequate for companies that want to move beyond
the basics and transform their business processes by securely moving apps and data
to the cloud. For AirWatch customers, this means they should start evaluating leading
enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms like MobileIron in order to achieve
their mobile transformation goals. Our platform is 100% focused on building today’s
modern enterprise architecture, which is quickly shifting core business processes away

Numerous studies demonstrate that a diverse and inclusive workforce is more collaborative and generates higher levels of creativity and productivity. Yet, despite the best intentions, many of today’s organizations still struggle in an attempt to increase diversity and belonging. Why? Research from the NeuroLeadership Institute suggests that unconscious thought patterns can impede organizational diversity and belonging initiatives. Register for the webinar to gain a better understanding of these challenging thought patterns and to learn the extent to which they impact such important aspects of business as decision-making, team building, hiring, innovation, and workplace success.
As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
Data matters more than ever to business success. But value does not come from data alone. Rather, it comes from the insights enabled by data. No matter what your role is, or where you are in your data journey, you are looking for ways to drive innovation.

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.
