In 2012, the substitution of voice and SMS by over-the-top (OTT) alternatives led to a $34 billion revenue loss for CSPs.

As enterprises confront global economic uncertainty, changing market dynamics and cultural discontinuities created by technology innovation, different parts of the enterprise require different ways of interacting with IT. What will this changing shape of IT mean to the role of the CIO in the future? This presentation looks at several scenarios and provides guidance on how to be prepared.
Self-service business analytics (BA) is not a replacement for the existing BA environment. Self-service BA can be incorporated at many points along the complete end-to-end BA process. In doing so, IT can better leverage the existing BA infrastructure as well as expand its capabilities, providing a more complete, fully functional BA environment capable of reaching not only more but also more diverse business customers.

As the enterprise continues to go mobile, the demand is growing for more complex data (beyond email) on devices designed for consumers. The next generation of mobile device management tools must keep pace with this demand, providing deeper security capabilities for mobile content and applications, as well as continued support for the day-to-day management of hardware and software. This session will look at the main enterprise mobile trends, the key drivers for managing mobility inside the enterprise, and the key technologies, lead vendors and best practices for securing and managing mobile devices and content.
Cloud computing threatens to change the ITOM vendor landscape. In addition, it requires the integration and automation of a greater set of management processes and functions, resulting in IT organizations selecting more functionality from fewer suppliers. The "Big 4" vendors BMC, CA, HP and IBM - own less than 50% of the $18-billion-dollar-plus ITOM market; however, will these vendors be able to maintain and grow market share in this fast-evolving IT landscape? The Big 4 are being challenged by hardware and software infrastructure vendors, such as Microsoft, Oracle and VMware, that want to turn management into middleware and, as a result, lock a greater portion of IT organizations into their platforms; cloud computing vendors, such as Amazon and Google, that want to fracture and take some of the IT budget at the expense of applications and infrastructure vendors; and smaller IT management suppliers and/or freshly funded newcomers. In a consolidating landscape, how can ITOM providers protect and grow their ITOM business? We will provide insight to these questions in this presentation on market dynamics and trends, and assist you in making informed decisions for developing a Cloud go-to-market strategy.
Most European supply chain organizations still prefer to install supply chain management (SCM) software locally or as a hosted service. However, we see gradual adoption of applications delivered alternatively over the Web and available through a pay-as-you-go subscription pricing model more common in the U.S. This model is gaining acceptance due to the attractive combination of functionality and cost-effectiveness. The most recognized of these SCM delivery models is software-as-a-service (SaaS). In this webinar we will analyze the current status of and most common barriers to adoption of SaaS SCM applications.
