The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?

As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.

Assurer la croissance de votre entreprise est une priorité permanente. Par ailleurs, à mesure que l’économie des applications poursuit son expansion, il est très probable que vous optiez de plus en plus pour des initiatives d’entreprise numérique afin d’alimenter cette croissance. Dans ce contexte, vos principaux objectifs doivent être les suivants : • Offrir une expérience numérique de qualité aux consommateurs via les outils mobiles • Développer les marchés et les sources de revenus par le biais de canaux multiples• Connecter les employés et les partenaires aux données de l’entreprise, partout et à tout moment • Lancer de nouveaux services innovants dans l’Internet des objets (IoT)
Aujourd’hui, le numérique est omniprésent : Cloud, appareils mobiles, réseaux sociaux et Internet des objets modifient notre manière de travailler et de nous divertir. Ce monde numérique en évolution rapide redéfinit également la relation entre l’entreprise et ses clients, ces derniers exigeant désormais de leurs marques préférées toute la commodité d’une expérience interactive. La sécurité est également au cœur des préoccupations. Les risques croissent à mesure qu’augmente le volume de données sensibles échangées entre les entreprises et leurs clients.Cette transformation a aussi pour effet d’amplifier la concurrence. Comme le remarque l’analyste Mark Raskino, « L’une des conséquences est que tous les acteurs se mettent à réévaluer leurs stratégies à peu près au même moment ; tous réalisent en même temps la formidable puissance du numérique. La concurrence est donc inévitable. »
Dans l’économie numérique, les interfaces de programmation d’applications ou API (Application Programming Interfaces) sont essentielles pour mettre rapidement en œuvre vos idées et saisir les nouvelles opportunités du marché. Elles sont les éléments fondateurs de la transformation numérique, permettant aux organisations d’offrir une expérience client exceptionnelle, de générer de nouveaux flux de revenus et d’offrir aux employés, partenaires, applications et périphériques un accès aux données, partout et à tout moment.Les API ne sont pas une technologie nouvelle, mais dans le monde numérique actuel, elles occupent une place croissante et deviennent essentielles pour chacune des facettes de l’entreprise. Dans ce contexte, il est logique que de plus en plus d’entreprises cherchent à gérer efficacement ces API. Mais à quoi ressemble une solution efficace de gestion des API ?

Finding the right IT service provider is not as simple as it may seem. Choosing a service provider based exclusively on low price may be good for your bottom line, but may fall short on delivering the right level of IT expertise and resource scalability for long-term advantage.
Leading a successful business means knowing the market, understanding
product trends, hiring the right people, enabling those people, staying on top
of expenses, making the right investments and countless other responsibilities.
One area you may or may not have on your mind is compensation. In today’s
tight talent market and ever-increasing competition spurred by technology,
the web and globalization, getting compensation right is more important than
ever. It impacts recruiting and retention, sure, but it also affects company
culture and even your bottom line. It has legal implications, too.
With the changing demographics (and expectations) of the current workforce, plus
automation opportunities today’s software provides, it’s time to modernize your
organization’s compensation. In this guide, we’ll share in detail the reasons you
should make modernizing your comp a priority, the value and ROI of implementing
modern compensation software and specifically how PayScale’s modern comp
Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
