The world economy has become service and project-driven. Global businesses have realized the new playing field is not based solely on competing with products and price, but rather through client-driven projects that require unique consulting knowledge, skills and experience. This project-driven service economy depends on accurately capturing knowledge-worker productivity—how much time, skill, materials and intellectual property are required to produce favorable client outcomes? New cloud-based Services Resource Planning (SRP) applications have emerged to manage the entire project lifecycle from requirements to quoting, time and expense capture and billing. SRP provides the systems basis for initiation, planning, resource management, execution, close and control of projects and services.

Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.
he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th

IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.
End users expect to be able to work anywhere, at any time, and from any device. Additionally, they expect a similar experience for accessing work apps and data across all their devices—desktop, laptop, tablet, and smartphone. Meeting these expectations is becoming more and more complex for IT teams that continue to use multiple disconnected tools to manage mobile and desktop devices.
A unified endpoint management (UEM) solution provides a holistic and user-centric approach to managing all endpoints. VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management™ provides IT with a comprehensive view of asset inventory and full lifecycle management of endpoints across the organization.
