To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.

What is a workload-optimized system? Simply put, it is one that matches architecture to the needs it is purchased for. Systems performance is no longer defined only by the fastest processor or other leading benchmarks, but rather by the ability to deploy new services faster, with higher quality, and within financial objectives. Commoditization has led some to think that financial objectives will lead to Intel-based systems for all uses. In this Advisory, we show that this is not the case, and by way of example, we demonstrate how Power Systems can be less expensive for ongoing operational costs and initial outlay.

Buy-and-hold strategies can actually add costs to the datacenter, as systems age in place. Not only do hardware maintenance and software maintenance fees rise, over time – but the aging of applications also costs the organization money. Investing in a transition from POWER5 to POWER7 resulted in a return on investment (ROI) of more than 150 percent over three years.An insightful and and compelling discussion by IDC that reviews the primary reason for maintaining current systems -- Return on Investment. IDC studied IBM Power Systems sites that remained on the POWER5 platform long after its initial introduction in 2004. When comparisons to the succeeding generation of POWER7 are made, customers have found that the increase in scalability and performance of POWER7 systems, combined with a reduction in server "footprint" size and overall electrical requirements, resulted in significant reductions in ongoing costs, or opex, per 100 end users supported.

"The potential to manage assets more efficiently, replace and upgrade them, and exploit them for purposes beyond their initial role, is significant in all cities in today’s world. However, technologies that support asset management in cities are numerous, fragmented and often inadequate. For any individual city agency, the level of cost and effort required to make improvement may seem daunting. This white paper highlights how Capgemini can help cities to become ‘smarter’: It describes how to offer to city agencies a leading practice asset management technical solution provided as-a-Service. This accelerates implementation, substantially removes funding hurdles, ensures an ongoing quality solution and incentivizes cities to migrate from a fragmented, costly and inadequate model to a common leading-edge solution."

The age of the customer. Possibly no term better illustrates the current era of business. Customers expect their experience to be flawless at every touchpoint, and with competitors only a click (or tap) away, company leaders have a strong incentive to deliver. Online retailers have set a high standard in the way that they engage customers on an ongoing basis—not just during the commercial transaction, but before, during and after each interaction with the customer. Can service providers in industries such as banking, insurance, healthcare and government meet the challenge?

People, machines, data, processes are more connected than ever before, in more ways, and at a pace not previously envisioned. Because of this, the means of user interaction are evolving rapidly, and the outcome is an explosion of information increasing at epic rates. Both the opportunity and the challenge for an organization is to execute a strategy to most effectively participate in, exploit and derive ongoing value from the expansive digital world. To evaluate and ultimately better facilitate this, many organizations are specifically defining a digital strategy as part of their overall general business strategy. Central to that digital strategy is the digital experience.

When it comes to design patterns, the battle between push and pull has been ongoing since the start. Both models have their place. But the authors of this IBM® Redbooks® Point-of-View article, including IBM WebSphere® VP Jerry Cuomo, argue that in many situations, pushing data to users as it changes can consume far fewer resources than a conventional pull pattern.

How customer-centric transformation can lead to deeper relationships, increased revenue and streamlined operations. Though the global economy is still sluggishly shaking off the effects of the near meltdown in 2008 and the ongoing sovereign debt crisis, banks in both the emerging and developed economies have as opportunity to manage enormous capital growth and wealth creation. But to regain customer confidence and earn their slice of the increasingly competitive market, banks must transform themselves. They must jettison decades-old, product-oriented operating models and become fully client-centric.

The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics that matter to them. Organizations today need to more actively solicit, analyze and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees. Having access to the collective “employee voice” can help leaders achieve diverse goals, including identifying innovations, preventing discord and improving productivity, as well as building a better connection to the organization and its mission. So, how can organizations establish and manage mutually beneficial listening programs? To better understand what companies are doing in the area of employee listening and the extent to which employees are willing to participate, we analyzed data from the 2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Institute WorkTrends Survey – a broad-based survey of ov
