As enterprise IT departments increasingly move toward multi-sourcing environments, it is more important than ever to measure ADM deliverables—not only to manage risks by ensuring overall structural quality of systems, but also to objectively evaluate vendors and make smarter sourcing decisions. This paper describes the eight steps for integrating Sofware Analysis & Measurement (SAM) in your outsourcing relationship lifecycle—from RFP preparation to contract development, team transition and benchmarking—to objectively evaluate the reliability, security, efficiency, maintainability, and size of software deliverables. This measurement can greatly improve the maturity in your outsourcing relationships to enhance performance and reduce risk.
Workforce analytics has become an essential business tool for leading companies that view workforce performance as the key to improving company results, according to a new global survey of business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytics Services. Workforce analytics is a set of integrated capabilities (technologies, metrics, data, and processes) to measure and improve workforce performance. The goal is simple: put the right
people with the right skills in the right work, provide them with the necessary training and development opportunities, and engage and empower them to perform at their highest possible level.
IPM offers unparalleled visibility across the Internet allowing you the ability to optimize infrastructure costs, mitigate risk, and protect your revenue. Unlike APM and NPM which only provide visibility into your applications or internal network respectively, IPM provides a complete end-to-end view of the public Internet so you can:
- Decide where to host content and applications for top performance
- Determine the impact website partners, such as cloud providers and ISPs, have on web responsiveness
- Identify optimal cloud hosts, NSPs, CDNs, and SaaS providers for Internet traffic, by region
- Monitor and measure service provider performance and SLA compliance
To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.

Accounts payable has been talking about end-to-end integrated automation for at least 40 years. Today, the technology exists, but resources are limited and end-to-end AP automation is still not standard. Some AP departments have automated pieces of the AP process, but an end-to-end solution should include the ability to capture, integrate, measure, process, store, and access information.
When was the last time you really thought about your hospital’s scales? Most patients will step on a scale as part of their hospital visit. Caregivers record weight to track health, measure fluid retention, or calculate medication dosages. While many scales function well, overlooking your hospital’s scales can be costly.
Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

All ML technology isn’t created equal. Learn how the CrowdStrike® ML-based Engine Defends Against Unknown Malware. While many organizations are guarding the front door with yesterday’s signature-based antivirus (AV) solutions, today’s unknown malware walks out the back door with all their data. What’s the answer?
A new white paper, “The Rise of Machine Learning in Cybersecurity,” explains machine learning (ML) technology — what it is, how it works and why it offers better protection against the sophisticated attacks that bypass standard security measures. You’ll also learn about CrowdStrike’s exclusive ML technology and how, as part of the Falcon platform’s next-gen AV solution, it dramatically increases your ability to detect attacks that use unknown malware.
This paper proposes a Service Provider Network Maturity Model — a framework by which Service Providers can prioritize activities, measure their progress, and benchmark against best-in-class developments.
When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component. Misalignment – or too much focus on one element –can dramatically detract from performance levels and the ability to measure results. An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.
The popularity of integration platform as a service (iPaaS) started with business users looking to gain control and share data among their proliferating SaaS apps?without needing IT intervention.
iPaaS was then adopted by IT to support business users to ensure security measures were being maintained and to provide more of a self-service environment. Now, iPaaS has evolved from a niche solution to taking a much bigger role:

Flexible work arrangements (FWAs) can come in many forms, including telecommuting, compressed workweeks and flexible scheduling that allows employees to perform tasks outside of core business hours. Improvements in technology have made FWAs possible for a broader segment of the labor force, but some of these arrangements have yet to achieve widespread acceptance in many organizations’ workplace cultures. However, SHRM research shows that participation in some FWAs has risen in recent years, and these measures have yielded positive results for companies’ recruitment and retention efforts, as well as their employees’ development and productivity.
