Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile, social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.

In the digital era, businesses in every industry are becoming technology companies. New business models such as “product as a service” (in which traditional manufacturers and distributors are driving new revenue streams by integrating software-based services into their offerings) and new operational models, such as collaboration, social business, and mobile platforms, mean that nearly every company is deriving at least part of its revenue from cloudbased solutions. So, why are so many of these new cloud solution providers building their businesses on shaky foundations? The truth is, when your business is based in the cloud, you need more than on-demand leased compute and storage capacity. You need a cloud that is enterprise-grade, secure, and resilient. Equally important—and overlooked by too many cloud solution providers—you need a cloud platform that is able to grow your business into the future, supporting next-generation functionality like Artificial Intelligence (AI). No matter wh

We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time. Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now. Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data

Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company. If it is poorly managed, not digitized, or disconnected from critical business processes, it creates chaos. This chaos impacts your ability to deliver exceptional customer service; it slows down important processes, increases security risk, and negatively impacts revenue. Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.

Modern technology initiatives are driving IT infrastructure in a new direction. Big data, social business, mobile applications, the cloud, and real-time analytics all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace. Customers increasingly drive the speed of business, and organizations need to engage with customers on their terms. The need to manage sensitive information with high levels of security as well as capture, analyze, and act upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical. These challenges will dramatically change the way that IT systems are designed, funded, and run compared to the past few decades. Databases and Java have become the de facto language in which modern, cloud-ready applications are written. The massive explosion in the volume, variety, and velocity of data increases the need for secure and effective analytics so that organizations can make bette

Businesses must become agile and provide differentiated service as customer demands and expectations change. Moving beyond simple phone transactions, customers are taking matters into their own hands and turning to their peers, the web and social media to find answers. Contact centers play a major role in determining the customer’s perception of a company. Often seen as brand ambassadors, agents are the main interaction point for customers. It is therefore critical that they deliver personalized communications in the channels that customers prefer. Businesses should use cloud technology to add multichannel tools and support growing demand for chat, social, SMS and video. Cloud solutions allow contact centers to gain access to new technology capabilities and channels on demand with the ability to scale up quickly. They offer the best technology innovation as well as the ability to scale agents up and down as business needs change. This whitepaper provides background on cloud contact cen

New research from IBM found that one-third of employees surveyed at Fortune 1000 companies are sharing and uploading corporate data on third-party cloud apps. Why? They’re tired of workplace apps that don’t perform like their personal apps: intuitively, on the go, and with some intelligence. Saying “yes” might feel good to your teams, but it can also turn your infrastructure into a Beast. You don’t know all the different apps being used, like file sharing or online meetings. Or how much they cost. Or if your content is safe and manageable. Can you give your teams what they want without getting trampled by the Beast? Yes you can. You can transform the Beast into a Beauty. But you need to consider three critical ways to make that happen.

Is email still the “killer app” it used to be? Social technologies and mobile capabilities are changing the way people communicate in the workplace. Many organizations are employing BYOD strategies and embracing social business tools like file sharing, chat, wikis and communities. In the past, email was used for storing and sharing documents and having conversations with groups. Tasks which are much better suited for today's social cloud collaboration tools. Email usage may be evolving, but email is not dead. In fact, everyone in the organization from executives to factory workers needs email to stay connected. And many organizations are moving their messaging to cloud to take advantage of the flexibility and cost savings a cloud environment provides.

When it comes to social media marketing, there is perhaps no other topic that is discussed more than determining and reporting return on investment, or ROI. This white paper sets out to make the case that ROI determination can be approached in a unified, structured and straightforward way. It also lays out a framework for expanding the definition of ROI and increasing organizational maturity for measurement and monetization. Finally, it dispels some of the myths around ROI and seeks to show the relationship between social KPIs organizations may be collecting today and how to align them with broader organizational and business-oriented goals and objectives.
