If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem.
Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.
As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.
Analyst paper outlining storage challenges, and the value of the all-flash data center as a means to achieving maximum business value from data and app performance. Includes tips for gaining support from business leaders.
With all the complexities of the U.S. health care system, people consuming health care services continue to find it challenging to navigate. That’s why, for the fifth year, Aon Hewitt is pleased to partner with the National Business Group on Health (The Business Group) and The Futures Company to conduct the Consumer Health Mindset Study. The study explores the health attitudes, motivators, and preferences of consumers across the U.S.— particularly employees and their dependents as they interact with their employer-sponsored health plans, wellness programs, and the broader health landscape.
Along with our findings about the consumer health mindset, we recommend practical actions you can take to meet consumers where they are and guide them in navigating health care more effectively.
Many BPO providers have already invested heavily in robotic process automation (RPA), providing an opportunity to renegotiate your BPO contract to reflect the cost savings they are making as a result.

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets.
