Imagine you’re running a factory but without a supply chain management system or industrial controls. Instead, you expect your customers to find and fix your delivery and quality problems. Sound ludicrous? Well, in many enterprises that’s the current “supply chain management” process for big and fast data. It relies on the lightly monitored dumping of unsanitized data into a data lake or cloud store, forcing data scientists and business users to deal with failures from data availability and accuracy issues.

At the most fundamental level an organization only does two things: operations and changes to operations. Regardless of the industry an organization is part of, or whether it is private or public sector, large or small, there is a constant drive to protect and improve operational aspects. Whether it is launching a new product or service, decreasing costs, protecting infrastructure from failure or preventing regulatory noncompliance, there are numerous areas where an organization wants to change something about how it operates. That’s where projects come in. In this whitepaper we look at what causes projects to fail so regularly and offer a sustainable approach for improving performance consistently.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Today’s consumers are more informed, diverse, demanding and well-connected than ever before. With nearly unrestricted access to shopping resources used for discovery, comparison, and purchase, consumers are able to shop at will, often independent of branded retailer guidance. This rise of consumer independence can be attributed to the emergence of technological advancements favoring consumer empowerment; however, the repeated failures of brands to proactively offer personalized, high-value shopping experiences at scale is a significant contributing factor of consumer exodus. This has fostered an inclination among shoppers to become self-reliant in their pursuit of purchases, effectively shutting out promotional outreach from brands. Many brands continue to fall out of touch with their customers because they’ve lost sight of their customers’ true needs. Customer centricity has long been the foundation for modern marketing, but the brands which fail at creating deeply personalized market

While simple fixes may cost a few thousand dollars, lost revenue from equipment failures can run into the millions of dollars in lost productivity and replacement costs. There can be longer-term impacts, too, if the downtime inhibits a manufacturer’s ability to meet customer needs. That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. By adopting a total cost of ownership (TCO) program, companies can find efficiencies they didn’t even know existed and reap benefits they didn’t realize were possible. Download our white paper, “The Cost Reduction Game,” to learn more about how a TCO program can help increase equipment reliability, extend equipment life, and lower energy costs.

That’s why it is important for companies to think about lubrication and equipment maintenance holistically, recognizing that short term cost savings may be leading to bigger, preventable expenses over the long term. Cheaper oil, for example, may save money initially, but it requires more frequent changes and provides less protection to the equipment, which could shorten component life. For many companies, the short-term savings simply aren’t worth the longterm cost risk. “Some companies don’t realize that they may be able to reduce their overall maintenance costs significantly by spending more up front on better quality lubricants,” Saffell says. “Their equipment may last longer and they are likely to see

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex, and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation initiatives. Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Enterprise data protection has grown unwieldy, with systems from various vendors claiming to protect all of an enterprise’s data—and none of them doing a particularly good job of addressing mission-critical data recoverability requirements. It’s a situation that introduces risk and raises concerns about IT’s ability to recover in a timely manner and without data loss from outages caused by cybercrime, system failures, or human error. An integrated strategy that focuses on the complete data recovery needs of an enterprise can eliminate data loss, cut recovery times, and reduce IT complexity—while ensuring data security and positioning the enterprise to seamlessly take advantage of the cloud.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

As in years past, 2017 was packed with stories of cyber security failure. Between sophisticated attackers, lack of proper security monitoring and controls implementation, and devastating data breaches that may have arisen from these scenarios, it’s easy to see that we still face serious challenges in the security arena, with potentially serious consequences. Why are we continually seeing these issues? Many security professionals readily admit that we don’t have the staff, training and breadth of coverage in our security controls to adequately combat the attackers today. How is this happening when we’re spending so much money and time on cyber security?

obile Payments have emerged as a catalyst for transactions across all markets. In underdeveloped markets, mobile payment technology is enabling businesses to sell products and services to consumers that had previously been out of reach. In developed markets, it has made the process of purchasing products and services even simpler. PayPal, one of the most popular digital payment solutions on the market, facilitated $66 billion in payment volume throughout 2015, and now has 188 million active registered user accounts across the US. Furthermore, Statista projects that mobile payments will account for more than $210 billion in transactions by 2019. Mobile payment technology is a step forward in the process of connecting businesses to the people they are serving. However, some merchants will find themselves miles behind their competitors by the time the transition to mobile payments is complete. The reason? A failure to implement the correct mobile payment strategy. An ever-increasing numbe

Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

The key to delivering profitable projects right from the start is being able to quote them accurately. Bidding on, and deploying scarce resources to a project that could not be delivered profitably is a recipe for failure. Through PSA solutions, top performing consulting firms can more accurately estimate job costs to determine profitability. Using analytics and lessons from past projects, this will enable smarter decisions on which projects should be bid on so that the project portfolio can be fully optimized. Further, this information can be refreshed mid-project so that changes can be made in an agile manner, and projects that are going off the rails can be steered back towards profitability.
