Nearly every business person regardless of their role – be it marketer, salesperson, consultant, engineer, or business owner – has acquired a second responsibility: project manager. In their desire to move quickly and keep costs low, many of these business people turn to the ubiquitous spreadsheet for help. Using a spreadsheet to track, update, and consolidate project information means spending valuable time on project administration – sending, receiving, and finding e-mails; cutting, pasting, consolidating, and reporting information; and reformatting, saving, and e-mailing spreadsheets.

Data centers are large, important investments that when properly designed, built and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise, yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems, with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems, such as thermal hot spots, lack of UPS, rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.

Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained.

One of the most important questions a company can ask itself is “what is our differentiation?” The reason is simple: it’s how you define yourself in the minds of your customers and beat the competition. Beyond that, it’s what guides business strategy as you face decisions and choices on a daily basis. A company that knows who it is and how it adds value for customers and prospects has a solid foundation for making those decisions. One that has an unclear position or, worse yet, constantly shifts position, has a difficult path in a challenging market. That’s why branding discussions need to go well beyond graphics and touch on the values and identity that are at the core of any successful company.
