The eG Integration Console


While many monitoring frameworks support commercial applications and application infrastructures, very few offer organizations the capacity to manage the custom application components that are inevitably a part of their infrastructure. But as these applications tend to be the most critical components of the target infrastructure, a framework that cannot provide insight into these ultra-critical components is offering severely limited value.

How to Boost Your WAN to Top Speed


While globalization can bridge distances and enhance communication, the story is a little different when it comes to wide area networks (WANs) and their effects on branch application performance. High-latency connections and chattiness cause slowed data transmission, and consequently, decreased user productivity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: a fast branch office application delivery infrastructure.

Realizing ROI from a Comprehensive Monitoring Solution


A single view into the health of the IT infrastructure is essential to efficiency. However, comprehensive monitoring is inaccessible to many IT organizations, thanks to limited resources: not only must they deliver performance and availability at service-level agreements, but they must find efficient ways to do it, to address other priorities such as innovation, training, development speed, and revenue support.

Integrated by Design: The Superior Strategy for Investment Portfolio Reportin


Systems for monitoring, managing, and reporting on financial assets are mission-critical—particularly in a volatile investment environment.

Key Metrics for Monitoring New Product Development


Since our research-driven beginnings, Johnson & Johnson Advanced Sterilization Products (ASP) has continually improved the new product development (NPD) process. Detailed process mapping has revealed three tiers of business metrics, starting with drivers and moving up through execution metrics to business performance metrics. When driver metrics improves, so does business performance. Six Sigma tools helps identify specific metrics at all tiers and the causality linkages among them. Each NPD process step at ASP results in a deliverable, and each deliverable relates to a trade-off triangle (cost-time-resources) and, ultimately, to investment dollars. To track performance, ASP calculates how actual NPD decisions and what-if scenarios affect deliverables, alter investment triangles, and thereby influence business results. ASP uses similar process and tools, including the investment triangles and Six Sigma QFD, to make idea management decisions. The IDweb real-time software environment enables both the NPD and idea management processes at ASP. By deploying the strategic planning, idea management, portfolio and pipeline management, process management, and resource management modules of IDweb, ASP has increased throughput by 20 percent and reduced cycle time by 40 percent.
