Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.
Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.

In the last few years, a wave of digital technologies changed the banking landscape - social/ mobile altered the way banks engage with customers, analytics enabled hyper personalized offerings by making sense of large datasets, Cloud technologies shifted the computing paradigm from CapEx to OpEx, enabling delivery of business processes as services from third-party platforms.
Now, a second wave of disruption is set to drive even more profound changes - including robotic process automation (RPA), AI, IOT instrumentation, blockchain distributed ledger and shared infrastructure, and open banking platforms controlled by application programming interfaces (API). As these technologies become commercialized, and demand increases for digitally-enabled services, we will see unprecedented disruption, as non-traditional banks and fintechs rush into all segments of the banking space. This whitepaper examines key considerations for banks as they explore value in the emerging Digital 2.0 world.

For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.

Mid-market HR today is being asked to be a business partner in areas that range from compliance to employee engagement. They need to be able to connect the dots among various sources of employee data to deliver better-informed business decisions to help achieve strategic goals.
Connecting those dots and delivering those results demands more HR firepower and greater data visibility than the manual or homegrown processes and systems often used by mid-market organizations can deliver. On the other hand, most mid-market companies aren’t ready for the intricacies or expense of human capital management (HCM) systems designed for enterprise-level organizations.
The answer for forward-thinking HR leaders who want to boost their team’s capabilities and play a greater role in their company’s future is having core HR functionality designed into an integrated benefits administration solution.
Automated HR that delivers core HR features as part of its architecture — not as an afterthought or a separate, stand-alone module — gives HR leaders:
• The tools they need to better handle their administrative work
• The data and analytics necessary to better coordinate programs and more confidently make strategic decisions
• A user experience that makes life easier for HR and employees

Artemis Health teamed up with Employee Benefit News to research the current “benefits landscape.” We surveyed self-insured employers to find useful trends, interesting stats, and info on what leaders like you are doing to improve their benefits strategy. In this whitepaper, you'll discover:
• Regional differences in benefits offerings and priorities
• What benefit leaders believe they can accomplish with benefits data analytics
• The features and functionality your peers are looking for when they evaluate a data solution
Consultants and advisors are on the front lines of benefits data analytics. They’re the folks who dig through thousands of rows in a spreadsheet to surface problems and find solutions. In this whitepaper, we’ll dive deep on the advantages consultants offer to employers:
• Access to data analytics, trend analysis, and program measurement
• The expertise to identify, track, and take action on chronic conditions in a member population
• The industry insight into public policy and regulation changes

Data is a truly inexhaustible resource for an organization. It creates endless possibilities to make data do more. As a technology partner of hundreds of organizations around the world, Infosys helps clients navigate the journey from their current state to the next.
Facilitating clients’ transition into data-native enterprises is a crucial part. To understand how companies are using data analytics today and their expectations in a world of endless possibilities with data, we recently commissioned an independent survey of 1,062 senior executives from organizations with annual revenues exceeding US$ 1 billion, in the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The respondents were from business and technology roles, who were decision makers, program managers and external consultants; represented 12 industries, grouped into seven industry clusters, such as, consumer goods, retail and logistics, energy and utilities, financial services and insurance, healthcare and life sciences, h
As we have said through this paper, it is no longer an either/or choice between security analytics and SIEM. Or even between insourcing and outsourcing security monitoring. You need to establish a team with complimentary capabilities, skills, and resources; then leverage each part for what it does best. It is frustrating to use a technology for something it’s not built to do, and just as frustrating to expect a service provider to do things beyond their capability — regardless of their claims during the sales cycle. So don’t do that — build your security monitoring program to give all parties the best chance of success.

With the pressure increasing, the growing imperative for marketers to prove their worth has arrived. It’s time for marketers to take control over the revenue process, earn the respect of their organizational peers, and earn a seat at the table. What must marketers do to be seen as an integral part of the machine that drives revenue and growth?

From child welfare and public health to combating prescription abuse and improving education, analytics is improving government programs around the world.
The articles in this e-book touch on several areas where analytics is making, or could make, a significant impact in the way governments operate. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite best practices that showcase the role analytics plays in better decision making.

The underground economy is thriving, thanks in part to new technologies and business models such as digital currencies and online marketplaces for freelance services. SAS fraud specialists reveal how government agencies can uncover these activities – and the tax obligations not reported from them. A former head of compliance for the country’s fourth-largest state workers' comp program describes how a comprehensive analytics program found a tax gap of $718 million and was granted funding to double the team’s size without even asking.
Under risk adjustment, health plans with a lower average risk score make payments into the system or miss out on revenue opportunities, while plans with relatively high average risk scores receive payments. So it’s critical for a plan to get this analysis right – or forfeit revenue it deserves.
With advanced analytics and machine learning, health care organizations can be more timely and confident in their risk adjustment programs, more effectively managing the cost of care and building a stable annual financial portfolio.
Tax revenues have been declining recently and some of this loss is caused by fraud, tax evasion, and various forms of tax cheating. The ineffective recovery techniques can give government agencies poor results, which results in 20% of broad-approach audits ending in "no charge". By using IBM SPSS Predictive Analytics Solutions it is possible to maximize revenues, analyze the data you already collect, detect non-compliant accounts efficiently, and identify important differences in tax records. This program has tremendous power and features an easy to use interface that focuses investigations on case that yield large adjustments ensuring a successful ROI for clients.

Both business and IT leaders will learn:
. Why midmarket organizations may have some requirements for BI and analytics programs
. How to navigate the many options available, and the pros and cons of various deployment styles
. Easy methods and techniques to get started with BI at
. Practical steps and best practices for midmarket BI programs
There is growing evidence that more pervasive BI and analytics have a direct impact on competitiveness. Better decision making is more important when resources become restricted during a recession, so BI and analytics projects will still appeal to management. However, justifying large capital outlays for software will be challenging unless short-term benefits can be directly correlated with the investment. As more incremental projects are undertaken, it will be important to execute these projects within the long-term strategic plan of organization wide decision management.
