Gaps in care in health systems cause higher mortality rates and inflate costs. Download this case study for a closer look at how one health system used IBM CareDiscovery data to prove to their board that an outpatient palliative care service line was viable in both cost savings and quality of care improvement.
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.
I don’t think it’s too much at all. However, I would recommend including some bullets calling out key points from the paper and a distinct call-to-action. Something like this:
At the start of every year, more than 80% of your annual IT spend is likely already committed – in the form of depreciation, maintenance, and support for infrastructure – inhibiting your ability to bring new capabilities to the business.
Making matters worse, these dollars often lie hidden in the form of inefficient or ill-advised software license management. If you don’t have the luxury of a mature vendor management function, you probably struggle to see the full picture of your future maintenance costs.
This guide will give you the tools to assess your IT spend by identifying potential blind spots and uncovering the benefits of ELAs and TLAs. Some blind spots may include:
• Limited visibility
• Productivity barriers
• Risk exposures

This is a case study which shows how Voorhees College implemented a revolutionary communications solution based around a service-orientated Unified Communications architecture from NEC to provide students, faculty and staff in five locations with software-based voice and desktop communications tools to achieve a 40 percent savings over its previous traditional telephony solution.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.

Learn how a typical organization could save over $120,000 in three years with Veritas NetBackup™ Appliances over traditional build-your-own (BYO) media servers. Veritas provides the industry’s only integrated and purpose-built backup and recovery appliances to address the financial challenges organizations face today.
Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.
Sure, ROI calculators help distill anecdotal evidence and analyze cost savings associated with travel, but it usually goes something like this: total hours spent traveling + cost of hotel, rental car, and food divided by the number of meeting hours. Well, at least that’s one version.
No matter the final number, the ROI total savings on cost of travel is only part of the story. Calculating the true ROI of video conferencing combines facts with real-life tangibles to help you understand and quantify your investment.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) serves as the clinical arm for research and treatment studies for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medicine, and Seattle Children’s. The organization’s outsourced IT service desk operated adequately, but a desire for financial savings, enriched customer relationships, and improved HIPAA compliance drove SCCA to seek out another solution.

Expedia Cruise Ship Centers saved $76 per agreement over a 3 year period by eliminating printing, faxing, and scanning. Read this case study to see how making the switch to DocuSign for their contract renewal and new-hire paperwork process has helped them save $1.5 million.
"Principled Technologies executed four typical deployment and management scenarios using both HPE Synergy and Cisco UCS.
They found that HPE Synergy saved 71.5 minutes and 86 steps, and used four fewer tools compared to Cisco UCS. In a hypothetical 200-node datacenter, that’s a total of 9 work weeks, or just over 2 months’ time savings on routine tasks."
Forrester study reveals how a typical HPE SimpliVity customer reduces total cost of ownership by 69% by consolidating infrastructure, reducing CAPEX and OPEX, and simplifying system administration. The cost savings enable a 183% investment return with a short 7.2 month payback.
If you’re anything like your peers, you are evaluating your education technology on an annual basis to determine if it’s time for a refresh. While most schools conduct their device refreshes during the summer because teachers, staff and students are not present, this timing can prove costly as the market is flooded with devices from schools doing the same thing.
To help school districts re-think their technology spending to focus more on total cost of ownership and residual value, as opposed to upfront cost, we’ve partnered with Diamond Assets — a technology buyback company — to explain:
• The true value and cost of iPad and Chromebook in education
• When schools receive the most trade-in value for their technology
• How to prepare for and execute technology refreshes

In the two years since we first began working on Enterprise Cloud Strategy, much has changed. Cloud
technology has evolved from being an “if” to a “when,” and across almost all enterprises, the cloud
has now become an integral part of IT strategy. Further, there is now a growing realization that cloud
computing not only represents a set of technical opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings, but
also provides the potential to significantly transform the scope of enterprise computing. In fact, many
enterprises are finding that cloud computing offers entirely new business models, revenue streams,
and vehicles for customer intimacy.
Few technological changes have the potential to so dramatically change to the way we do business.
The last time we experienced such a tectonic shift was the with arrival of the Internet itself.
Yet, as we noted in the first edition of this book, when briefing CIOs and senior IT executives at
Microsoft, we are often told that migrating IT workloads to the
