The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service.

Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?

In our second annual marketing survey, we surveyed CMOs in The CMO Club about their use,expectations, and measurement of social media, then compared the results to the previous year's survey. In short, 2009 marked the year CMOs embraced social media marketing but struggled to tie their strategies to the bottom line. Many evaluated engagement metrics created from social media- such as the number of click-throughs to the website or number of fans or followers - instead of evaluating business metrics like revenues and conversion. In 2009, CMOs aspired to tie social to the bottom line.

Insurance fraud has existed wherever insurance policies are written, taking different forms to suit the economic times. Today the magnitude of insurance fraud is not only startling but increasing. Recent studies by the US National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) reported a 24 percent rise in questionable claims for the period 2011 to 2013. The full scale of insurance fraud is not known. And if fraudulent behavior is not discovered at the time the claim is submitted, the insurer may never know it occurred. Consequently, an uninvestigated claim can’t be labeled as fraudulent to investigate.
