Being responsible for one-third of a business’ success already puts HR in a critical role. But it’s not just about finding the best people—it’s about finding the best people, at the lowest cost, with the lowest possible attrition and the best possible performance. And it’s about guiding your executive team to the right decisions using the language they understand best: numbers. Talent management—covering everything from recruiting and compensation to ongoing education and retention—has traditionally been managed in silos, with a series of disparate systems and disconnected processes and reports. In today’s data-driven world, CEOs demand more. This new study conducted by HR.com explores what’s working for organizations today and the biggest gaps to fill.

Some people believe high performance teams come together and innovate due to luck—the right people happen to be together in a room at the right time. By reviewing moments in history that resulted in some of our biggest innovations— from the light bulb to the airplane—you will see that luck has very little to do with it. Working to create an innovative environment with high performers is possible in any environment if the proper measures are taken to make it work.

If you work on a network operations team, you know how increasingly hard it is to understand and ensure application performance for your end users. You need visibility into areas where issues may occur – end-user devices, network and infrastructure – in order to identify and diagnose problems quickly
and minimize downtime.
But it hasn’t been easy to gain this level of visibility across the WAN or hybrid network without deploying additional probes, packet capture devices or remote site technicians. Blind spots are everywhere making it difficult to focus on managing and monitoring the applications that matter the most to your business. And when nearly 50% of a network’s traffic is web-based and it all looks the same to the network, identifying your important applications and staying ahead of their performance problem is more difficult than ever. That could mean inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. Who wants that?

Instead of only managing projects, organizations do need to manage value! "Doing the right things" and "doing things right" are the essential ingredients for successful software and systems delivery. Unfortunately, with distributed delivery spanning multiple disciplines, geographies and time zones, many organizations struggle with teams working in silos, broken lines of communication, lack of collaboration, inadequate traceability, and poor project visibility. This often results in organizations "doing the wrong things" and "doing things wrong", with associated higher costs, project delays and lower quality.
Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?
Over the past two decades, the conferencing and collaboration industry has introduced a series of enterprise communications offerings that address these challenges by enabling voice, video, and data collaboration at a distance – saving customers time and money, fostering team collaboration, and improving employee work-life balance. More recently, video conferencing and collaboration solutions have moved to the "cloud," giving customers cost effective, scalable, and more flexible purchasing options to meet their expanding communications needs.

Growing in number and becoming increasingly more malicious, security threats and attacks pose a severe threat to the survival of a business. Security operations teams need to leverage every available tool to respond more quickly and effectively to these incidents. While network packet capture and forensic analysis has traditionally been used by network operations, such a tool can also help security teams augment existing defenses and get on top of these threats. Given the hostile IT security environment, close collaboration between these groups is crucial to overall IT organizational success. This white paper explains the importance of packet capture and forensic analysis to security operations, examines the dynamics of this growing collaboration between security and network teams, and explores a leading platform in this market from Viavi Solutions.
In the age of information, staying on top of emerging threats requires IT teams to leverage existing tools in innovative ways, such as applying deep packet inspection and analysis from performance monitoring solutions for advanced security forensics. Based on recent insight gathered from 322 network engineers, IT directors and CIOs around the world, 85 percent of enterprise network teams are now involved with security investigations, indicating a major shift in the role of those teams within enterprises. Large-scale and high-profile security breaches have become more common as company data establishes itself as a valuable commodity on the black market. As such, enterprises are now dedicating more IT resources than ever before to protect data integrity.

Michael Farino is the Hospitality Manager for the New York office of DLA Piper (DLA), one of the world’s largest business law firms.Michael and his team oversee the firm’s meal program and all caterin gand special events. With 500 employees in the office and dozens of client meetings and special events each month, this is no small task.
DLA worked with Seamless to create a set of rules that would govern when and how employees could order food. Each and every one of DLA’s 500 NYC-based employees was given a username and password. Everyone was free to log-in and order their own meals. Everyone was also assigned to a specific budget group. These budget groups are based each person’s role at the Firm and can accommodate different spending limits and permission levels. As Michael notes, “right away, Seamless gave us the power to enforce our rules,but still be flexible so people get what they need. It’s a win-win.”

The term “network management” encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations’ operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.
For this EMA™ Radar, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations’ need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.

Since 2005, organizations have created more workspace changes – eliminating vast (and dull) cubicle farms in favor of community spaces arranged to accomplish several goals including:
• Maximize existing workspace
• Foster more collaboration and teamwork
• Accommodate mobile/remote employees who no longer need a dedicated space in an office building
Hot desking and desk hoteling are workspace strategies that are here to stay. This executive briefing will help any real estate or facility manager understand how to leverage these concepts, adapt to trends and get a return that the finance team will appreciate.
