Regulatory compliance is more than a series of rules to adhere to, and getting it right could save you time and money.
Historically, compliance has been regarded as a checklist of fixed requirements. But this reactive outlook risks being too short-sighted. It can lead to higher compliance costs, audit deficiencies, greater business downtime and an increased risk of data loss. Furthermore, it can lead to missed opportunities to achieve greater levels of operational effectiveness for your business.
The only way to achieve a greater level of operational efficiency is to adopt a proactive strategy and stay ahead of the compliance curve.

A more collaborative model that helps leaders of complex businesses to maximize effectiveness is gaining traction. Four prominent business leaders discuss their challenges and successes in shifting to this shared business model.

The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.
In the new digital economy, competition, consumer engagement, and operational effectiveness are fundamentally changing, and accelerating. New competitors are redefining the landscape at unprecedented rates. Building and keeping trust mean delivering exceptional brand experiences, every time, via agile processes that balance consumer needs with cost to serve. One size does not fit all. Engaging consumers and capitalizing on new opportunities depend on the capacity to identify, act on, and deliver high-value experiences and outcomes like joy, confidence, security, and control, all in the span of a moment, exactly where and when a consumer or business need arises. Miss the moment, miss the opportunity.
