Establishing a culture of integrity, ethics and respect is the number one priority for companies in 2017, according to a new report. In common with the 2015 report, getting an organisation's culture right is the main objective for compliance professionals in the year ahead, with 85 per cent of respondents saying it is one of their three main goals.
However despite this, only 32 per cent of firms indicated that they are planning to undertake a culture or ethics assessment in the next twelve months. In addition, workplace behaviour was rated as the lowest area of risk receiving attention by stakeholders (29 per cent).

The goal of warehouse operations is perfect order fulfillment: to deliver exactly the items a customer ordered, on time and with optimal efficiency. The warehouse module of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution can help smaller warehouses achieve this goal. But ERP warehouse modules have limitations that can make it smarter for companies with more complex operations to turn to the added capabilities of an advanced warehouse management system (WMS).

There’s no denying that Office 365 is a big deal. It’s a big part of the Microsoft Intelligent Cloud strategy. It’s big in terms of its user base. And it has a big impact on your network. Fully deployed, Office 365 will quickly become your greatest consumer of bandwidth and slayer of firewalls. Office 365 is unlike any other SaaS app and, even with careful planning, it’s fair to say that deployment doesn’t always go without a hitch. To help you get on the road to success, we’ve pulled together an overview of the most common pitfalls organizations make pre-deployment—and what you can do to avoid them.
So you’re thinking about moving to the cloud. Which means you’ve got some new (and some old) security issues to think about.
Where do you start? What should you look for when you’re planning your cloud migration or expansion, and what features do you need to tick off your list when you compare partners for the project?
At AWS, we’ve worked with millions of cloud users in 190 countries, from all kinds of industries – large enterprise, start-ups, non-profits, education and government. Every organisation's needs are different, but we’ve identified the top features of any successful cloud security initiative. Here are six must-haves for cloud security confidence.
Bjarte Bogsnes holds the unique distinction of being the only person to have "blown up the budget" at more than one company: at his previous employer, the European plastics manufacturer Borealis, and at his current one, Statoil, the Norwegian oil giant. A dedicated champion of the Beyond Budgeting movement, Bogsnes takes the concept of rolling forecasting-itself a relatively new approach-one big step further, with dynamic forecasting.
Activity-based budgeting has been discussed for some time, but becomes far more practical with a Time Driven Activity-Based-Budgeting (TDABC) model. Using this approach, a company can now link its strategic plan and sales and production forecast to the specific demands for capacity required for implementation. This chapter introduces the powerful new extension of the TDABC model to perform what-if analysis and activity-based budgeting.
In describing what forecasters are trying to achieve, Saffo outlines six simple, commonsense rules that smart managers should observe as they embark on a voyage of discovery with professional forecasters: Map a cone of uncertainty, look for the S curve, embrace the things that don't fit, hold strong opinions weakly, look back twice as far as you look forward, and know when not to make a forecast.
In 2006 the world economy was booming, partly on the back of triple-A investment innovations. Then, suddenly, the boom ended. What fascinates the authors is the fact that almost no one saw the 2008 economic crisis coming. In this article, the authors come to terms with the reality that, in economics and business, accurate forecasts aren't possible. Therefore, they say, managers need to develop a different attitude about the future.
A must-read for IT professionals that provides a comprehensive analysis of the API management marketplace and evaluates 22 vendors across 15 essential criteria.
APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.

When studies indicate that around 70 per cent of an organisation’s data is usually ROT – redundant, obsolete or trivia – it makes no sense to leave it taking up expensive primary storage space. By downloading Redstor’s new Storage Analyser, you take the first step towards better capacity planning and cutting primary storage costs. It allows you to find out what space would be freed up if inactive data was offloaded to the cloud.

Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.
While any number of reasons can prompt a change in data warehouse solutions, there are four key facts you need to know to help you make the right choice:
1. Complexity stifles business 2. Speed is business-friendly 3. Cost reduction is crucial 4. Analytics: The key to current and future success
This e-book will explore those facts and explain why they are essential when evaluating your data warehouse options.
At many organisations, planning and budgeting take too long and devour resources. Finance teams spend too much time on administrative tasks relating to these processes—collecting, consolidating and reconciling data, for example—and are left with little time for analysis, strategy development and target setting. Accuracycan be patchy, results unreliable.
These are the end times for traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. Overstatement? Not really—especially for growing businesses like yours. Old-school ERP systems are simply too slow, complex, and inflexible to keep up with today’s business climate.
Think about your existing ERP. Does it support industry-specific best practices, ever-changing regulatory requirements, and emerging technologies such as social media, mobile, cloud, and analytics? If not, you could risk losing ground to your competitors as a result.
Did you ever wonder what enterprise resource planning or ERP is and how it can help your business? Or perhaps you know a little about ERP but you’re not sure if you should opt for an on-premise or cloud solution and what to expect from your final choice.
If you’re a business owner, manager or director in a mid-sized or growing business and you’re confused about ERP, this guide will help you.

In recent years, Europe has seen a real boost in the building of renewable generation capacity. Germany is a notable example of a country with significant growth in renewables. As shown in Figure 1 below, since 2000, the average annual growth of installed capacity in Germany has been more than 15 percent, reaching 18-20 percent between 2009 and 2010.
For the most part, favorable conditions for the development of renewables have been caused by support schemes, previously based on feed-in-tariffs and competitive auctions. Now the country has reached a point where renewables account for around 53 percent of installed capacity and around 36 percent share in total electricity demand, already exceeding the 2020 target of 35 percent.
