Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.

In recent years, the term “cloud” has appeared seemingly everywhere. But it’s become difficult to understand what precisely someone means when they say “cloud.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology defines cloud computing as a “model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.”

Construction companies are meeting the challenge of ever-intensifying competition by refining their business operations with standardized operating practices and “visible” information that is shared among multiple departments. “Before, only owners who wanted to grow a very large company would worry about transitioning from the informal business they started to formalized, standardized business processes,” says Jim Flynn, CEO of Maxwell Systems, a leading provider of construction management software solutions, expert services, and best practices. “But in the current environment, you also have to make that transition just to stay competitive and improve your profitability.”

While being the backbone of many organization’s Offices of Finance and Accounting, it is now commonly acknowledged that this overreliance on Excel spreadsheets coupled with the lack of visibility associated with its use represents a very real risk. With automation available to improve both process efficiency and effectiveness, the challenge many companies face isn’t why they should transform their process but how. The key to overcoming this challenge is creating a strong business case for investment. One that not only sets out the objectives of the project but is also underpinned by a robust financial analysis, in the form of qualitative and quantitative ROI, and a thorough understanding of risk.

One of the most common things we hear when we speak to companies about improving their financial close process through automation is “But I already have an ERP system.” It’s true that an ERP goes a long way towards helping manage some of the financial close process. However, there is still a great deal of work that is taken outside of the ERP each period end and managed manually.

This document defines Oracle’s Customer Experience (CX) Value Equation as the strategic method to identify and measure the value of organizational CX. This model was originally documented in “CX Metrics and KPIs – September 2012.” It has received wide support, and has been the #1 searched hit and downloaded CX KPI document for 3+ years – a significant achievement in this industry – in an era where concepts are replaced daily with the latest, greatest fad. Since the original publication, I have received significant feedback that has been overwhelmingly positive, but with a request to comment on additional topics – most notably: brand impact, shared services, and Oracle’s Road to Modern. This updated paper leverages the original work, adds information around these additional topics and incorporates our continued client experience.

This paper covers some of the critical security gaps today’s mobile-cloud enterprises must address: • Unsecured devices. Unsecured devices allow users to easily access business data from mobile apps or cloud services simply by entering their credentials into an app or browser on the device. Once on the device, data can be easily compromised or shared with unauthorized, external sources. • Unmanaged apps. These typically include business apps, such as Office 365 productivity apps, that the user has downloaded from a personal app store instead of the enterprise app store. As a result, these apps are not under IT control but can still be used to access business content once the user enters his or her credentials. • Unsanctioned cloud services. Most enterprise cloud services have associated ecosystems of apps and services that integrate using APIs. While the enterprise cloud service might be sanctioned, apps and services from its ecosystem might not be.

As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents. However, increasing dependence on web and network services also makes government a tempting target for hackers. Distributed Denial of Service attacks, data breaches, leaks, the risks can be enormous. Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.

If you’re in the middle of a finance transformation initiative, then you’re not alone. Leaders at enterprise and mid-size finance and accounting organizations alike are reviewing their current processes, technology, and talent, to build their blueprints for change. With the rise of broader digital transformation projects, finance organizations are first looking to upgrade their own operating models. The truth is that finance transformation is a journey, not a destination. Many finance organizations have already embarked on it, driving down costs, whether through enhancing shared services centers, or applying more centralization, standardization, and automation. Yet for many, the greater opportunities lie ahead: providing better insight to the broader organization, shedding low-value workloads that hold the team back, and revamping ingrained legacy accounting tasks that create risk. Wherever you are today, there are real opportunities to move the dial away from the status quo.

Typically, Shared Services Center (SSCs) automation initiatives have been undertaken to reduce costs and improve efficiency. These goals are achieved relatively easily within the first few years, most immediately through reduced labor costs and centralized activities. In fact, standardization and centralization deliver up to 50% savings. During subsequent phases, technology automation and outsourcing cut costs further. But, if cost reduction is the only clearly defined goal, organizations will reach a point of diminishing returns.

The shared responsibility model is spelled out in the terms of services document of every CSP from Microsoft to Amazon. However, it is arguably the least understood and most misconceived concept. Simply put, the shared responsibility model outlines the CSP’s responsibility to maintain a secure and continuously available service and enterprises’ responsibility to ensure secure use of the service. Why is such a concept so difficult to comprehend and open to varying interpretations? Is the difference between security of the service and secure use of the service so significant? Aren’t enterprises moving to the cloud so they don’t have to deal with these types of responsibilities? This white paper examines the root cause behind the confusion, some unfortunate scenarios that resulted from the confusion, and how some enterprises are successfully addressing and embracing the shared responsibility model.
