Transforming Finance and Accounting to Optimize Financial Close
Many firms are working to accelerate and improve the daily financial close, but are far from ready. By formalizing the F&A value chain, modernizing and strengthening their F&A platform, assessing and optimizing existing service models and heightening overall F&A governance, companies can achieve this goal, supported by a set of success factors for measuring progress and aligning transformation activities.
Delivering User Excitement in the Digital Era Through an Enterprise Service Hub
To succeed in a digital world, enterprises must reengineer their help and service desks along a hub and spoke model, employing analytics and total case ownership to satisfy internal and external user needs as soon as they arise.
Tailoring Omnichannel Fulfillment Strategies to Network Segments
There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for optimizing the supply chain. However, when implemented with network segments, omnichannel fulfillment can help retailers optimize inventory at every point, meet or exceed service expectations and reduce the overall cost to serve.
Why New‑age IT Operating Models are Necessary for Enhanced Operational Agility
IT organizations need a new operating model consisting of automated tools, refined thinking around operating discipline and more relevant talent acquisition and management strategies. This new model will not only help IT deliver tailored services to a new generation of users, but it will also unlock the vast potential of emerging digital business opportunities made possible by the quickly maturing SMAC Stack.
Why MBaaS Now
Using mobile back end as a service (MBaaS), embedded in a standard enterprise architecture, as a platform for mobile app development offers organizations development agility. MBaaS features also include mobile security, business logic, analytics and support services.
The Role of IT in Supporting Mergers and Acquisitions
Involving IT teams early and often during mergers and acquisitions can help enterprises realize more value from the operational and market synergies that bring businesses together.
Identifying and Evaluating Winning IT Services
Evaluating IT services is notoriously tricky and increasingly essential. We present a guide and several equations for a service measurement continuum based on ease of evaluation as well as perceived benefits and costs.
Autonomics: Mastering
Self-Learning and Self-Healing
IT operations automation is greatly facilitated by
self-learning, self-healing expert systems that can
resolve problems via a virtual engineer. Autonomics
is an especially powerful version of such
automation engineering.
Coordinating Security Response and Crisis Management Planning
Security or emergency response for businesses must be tactically and strategically integrated with disaster recovery, with a plan for root cause analysis and next steps.
Transforming the Business with Outcome-Oriented IT Infrastructure Services Delivery
The alignment of IT and business objectives demands that both efficiency and growth are covered by IT infrastructures. An outcome-based model for delivering these can be based on a wide range of relevant metrics.
