AP automation is often described as low hanging fruit in the
garden of digital transformation. And for a good reason – the
barrier to entry is impressively low in terms of both cost and
effort needed to get up and running, particularly in comparison
to the implementation projects for other business applications.
Despite that fact, the value provided from AP automation is
comparably high. For such an easy implementation, the benefits
reach throughout an organization, beyond the walls of the AP
department, and are near-immediate from day one of using the
Standard benefits include:
- Immediate value from day one with an expected ROI within the first year
- Up to 95% truly touchless invoice processing with access to real-time cloud data for benchmarking and reporting
- Easy access to financial data, such as cash flow & accrual reporting, with full visibility and control of the AP process
This guide will help you kick-start your AP automation project by
defining the 6 steps to build a solid business case and gain the
internal approvals needed to get started.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest
In addition, given the steep learning curve in cloud development, con
A huge array of BI, analytics, data prep and machine learning platforms exist in the market, and each of those may have a variety of connectors to different databases, file systems and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud. But in today’s world of myriad data sources, simple connectivity is just table stakes.
What’s essential is a data access strategy that accounts for the variety of data sources out there, including relational and NoSQL databases, file formats across storage systems — even enterprise SaaS applications — and can make them all consumable by tools and applications built for tabular data. In today’s data-driven business environment, fitting omni-structured data and disparate applications into a consistent data API makes comprehensive integration, and insights, achievable.

By 2020, Gartner predicts 100% of new entrants to IT – and 80% of historical vendors –
will offer subscription-based business models to their customers. These organizations are
prioritizing the cloud over on-premises data centers and legacy software, so they can more
efficiently deliver highly available, scalable, and cost-effective service offerings.
To remain competitive, you need to modernize your approach to .NET development – and

Most companies moving into the public cloud today are making strategic decisions about which applications should go to the cloud and which should stay on-premises. Get acquainted with hybrid cloud management strategies and solutions, and learn what critical components must be addressed as you plan your hybrid cloud environment.
The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS

The ever-rising tide of demands on IT organizations is creating constant pressure on their leaders to upgrade or replace their outmoded legacy systems with new infrastructure technologies that will allow them to keep pace with the speed of business. It is no longer sufficient to manage basic business applications and resources such as ERP, email, and silos of heterogeneous data. The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.
These are no longer capitally strained organizations building an application on a one-off basis, with the cloud this is enterprise transition, this is enterprise applications being shifted to the cloud, new applications being developed in the cloud, and this requires a completely new way of building and consuming IT services for the enterprise.

"Now there’s an innovative new way to move enterprise applications
to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and
trade?offs. It’s called multicloud storage, and it’s an insanely
simple, reliable, secure way to deploy your enterprise apps
in the cloud and also move them between clouds and on?
premises infrastructure, with no vendor lock?in. Multicloud
storage allows you to simplify your infrastructure, meet your
service?level agreements, and save a bundle."
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
To support IT-enabled business processes, line-of-business (LOB) and IT executives are teaming to assess applications and IT workloads and shifting the right workloads to more agile cloud-enabled platforms.
With cloud, mobile and all the new tools & frameworks that come with them, application development has never been so easy – or so hard.
