A surprising 80% of the 30 million1 warehouse workers worldwide, in the field of transportation and logistics, are still using pen and paper in a physically-intensive environment that increasingly demands accuracy and real time feedback. With warehouse efficiency, so closely tied to customer satisfaction in areas like ecommerce, the low penetration of digital solutions20% as recent as 2014, is surprising. Unless an organization has a fully automated warehouse, the job is heavily labor-intensive. VDC research reveals that as long as human labor plays a dominant role in warehousing, any technology that optimizes workflows and improves accuracy will add tremendous value
Aaron Woller, president of Woller Precision Machine, discusses how his company enhanced its productivity and profitability by transitioning from conventional vertical machining centers to an automated horizontal machining cell. Beyond simply improving capacity and workflow, this investment in automation has enabled Woller to maximize the value of skilled labor, redeploying personnel into new business development roles. In doing so, the company experienced a 21 percent increase in sales with only a 6 percent increase in labor requirements.
World leader in design and manufacture of innovative sensing solutions that enhance safety, security, and energy efficiency.
For this manufacturers of high-tech imaging systems, monitoring accuracy and product quality are critical. Any quality problem could mean a part fails sooner than expected, or triggers a false alarm at a customer site that causes unnecessary panic.
By setting up automated manufacturing analytic workflows with the TIBCO StatisticaTM platform, the company can complete complicated processes in just a few minutes and improve product quality by decreasing the variability of everything they produce.
All things that can be automated will be automated. Beyond the careful choreography of sophisticated workflow, managing myriad simultaneous requests puts unprecedented demand on the software that must schedule and perpetually deliver against well-defined service levels, in real time. Gone are the days of simple batch processing. Welcome to the oh-so-very-flat world that is embracing service-oriented architectures, grid architectures, expansive ecosystems, and end-to-end processing. Workload scheduling has got to grow up.

Cloud computing give you the opportunity to manage infrastructure as code. This capability provides the ability to manage the delivery pipeline in a way similar to how we manage code, providing repeatable, testable deployments of applications all the way from unit to user acceptance tests, reducing risks and costs, and removing the bottlenecks that occur at the transition from agile development to operational deployment. Join this webcast to learn how Collaborative DevOps solutions from IBM can help turn your delivery pipeline into an agile, automated workflow.
What's in the white paper?
Like all areas of the finance team, the accounts payable department is tasked with working smarter and doing more with less. The challenge is that many organizations are drowning in paper invoices, spreadsheets and manual AP processes.
A digital transformation can create more automated workflows, easier tracking of payments, and more overall accountability and visibility. In addition, the data collected can support a more predictable cash flow and a stronger negotiating position with vendors.
This white paper will examine APs role in reimagining the entire finance process as part of the purchase-to-pay cycle, including:
Avoiding costs of processing paper invoices and payments
The role of the CFO in mitigating risks of manual processes
The value of AP integration with e-payable solutions
We all know that teamwork makes the dream work. And in the case of procurement and accounts payable (AP), this rings especially true.This IOFM white paper explores the negative effects of dissociated procurement and AP departments and the benefits of integrating them with an automated, end-to-end P2P workflow, including:
-Fewer duplicate payments & improved ROI
-More collaborative teams & increased efficiency
-Heightened business intelligence from greater visibility & reporting
This white paper is intended to explore the process of secure and efficient paperâbased document marking and printing using Microsoft® Word. At the same time it will explore the savings that can be realized by implementing an automated practice that reduces risk of unintended use.

Managing accounts payable is a common practice in every commercial establishment. Whether you deal with goods or provide services, materials and supplies have to be purchased to conduct ordinary business.
This white paper examines how some of the ways organizations
use big data make their infrastructures vulnerable to attack. It
presents recommended best practices organizations can adopt
to help make their infrastructures and operations more secure.
And it discusses how adding advanced security software solutions
from IBM to their big-data environment can fill gaps that
big-data platforms by themselves do not address. It describes
how IBM® Security Guardium®, an end-to- end solution for
regulatory compliance and comprehensive data security, supports
entitlement reporting; user-access and activity monitoring;
advanced risk analytics and real-time threat detection analytics;
alerting, blocking, encryption and other data protection capabilities,
as well as automated compliance workflows and reporting
capabilities, to stop threats.
