Cloud solutions are the new normal as organizations opt to deploy more business systems “in the cloud.” For learning professionals, cloud-based solutions provide a wide range of benefits from cost savings to decreased delivery time, to global reach.
Before selecting a cloud-based learning provider, you should understand all the benefits and be prepared to ask potential providers critical questions regarding the architecture and management of the service you are considering. This white paper explores 10 factors you should review in this process.
Today, business process automation is a critical strategy used to transform organizations and strengthen bottom-line results. At the front of this movement, human resource leaders are embracing automation to transform every aspect of their company's workforce management, from payroll to core HR to strategic talent management. For HR leaders who are considering automation to transform their people management processes, a crucial step in the early project-planning phase should include gaining a full understanding of the significant advantages offered from true cloud technology. Additionally, those organizations already using automated solutions via on-premise software will want to weigh out the options of switching to cloud delivery for greater efficiency.

Achieving long-term profitability for 5G will require a major shift in thinking for many operators. Given the investments and capacity upgrades involved, simply treating 5G as just “another G” is a doomed strategy. Instead, 5G must be seen as an opportunity to re-energize the Telco business model and to move away from traditional commoditized network offerings.

"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
Maximising data value – ensuring the right data is in the right place, with the right people at the right time – is a vital element of digital transformation. But achieving this means optimising data delivery, and that means optimising storage performance.

Marketing is not getting more difficult because of data— it’s actually getting easier. In the old days you needed to guess who your audience was and plan in advance what you wanted to say and wait far too long to see if it worked. Those days are long gone—now you can determine EXACTLY who your audience is, deliver a relevant, personalized message in a nanosecond, and find out almost immediately whether it worked! You no longer have to live by the spray-and-pray method— you can be tactical in your delivery. Marketing today is data-driven and uses a wealth of insights and connection points to engage with consumers one to one.
Data about our customers and prospects gives us the ability to deliver the right message to the right audience at the right time. That’s audience targeting, and it’s far deeper than demo targeting, even though targeting by demo is a nice place to start. That said, the sheer volume of data and technology can be overwhelming. Cut through the noise and tackle the ba

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?
