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

“The benefits of agile are multidimensional. But the most important change is that it focuses the entire organization on meaningful delivery to the customer. Instead of relying on indirect metrics describing degrees of our software’s quality and progress ... we ask, ‘What percent of critical functionality is included in this release?’ This emphasis on customerperceived value impacts our entire project life cycle pretty significantly.” Vice President of Infrastructure Management BMC Software.
Building out a dedicated infrastructure with the agility, scalability, and effciency of a public cloud—while enjoying increased levels of control and security—can help enterprises boost agility and improve operational ef?ciency. However, while most private cloud networking services provide basic load balancing functionality, they lack important application delivery features, putting the performance, availability, and security of applications at risk.
As private clouds increasingly host mission-critical production applications, advanced application delivery services for layers 4 through 7 are becoming essential. End-to-end integration, orchestration, and automation of the needed application delivery networking and security services are also critical to improve application time-to-market and operational ef?ciency.
This white paper examines the details of how to gain improved customer retention and acquisition for a lower overall investment by defining basic CRM functionality needed by most organizations to achieve their customer goals and objectives.
New functionality in BIG-IP v10--such as resource provisioning and route domains--coupled with existing administrative domain capabilities enables IT to virtualize application delivery functions across departments. Sharing the investment in a unified application delivery solution across business constituents increases the return on investment while reducing the complexity inherent in managing multiple devices.
BIG-IP resource provisioning combines the best features of each virtualization model by enabling BIG-IP LTM modules to run sandboxed without sharing resources, while giving them the ability to dynamical scale if/when needed. Resource provisioning is a new model in hardware virtualization, one that will change the face of application delivery and Application Delivery Controllers moving forward.
