The Fashion and Apparel Retailers' Conundrum

Challenges of the Future: The Rebirth of Small Independent Retail in America


By any measure, retailers are overwhelming small businesses. More than 95 percent of all retailers have only one store. Almost 90 percent have sales less than $2.5 million (USD), and more than 98 percent have fewer than 100 employees. To compete, small businesses need to be innovative, and understand both personalization and value, and how to execute best practices to build success.

The Future of the Manufacturing Supply Chain—Networked, Mobile, and Collaborative


As we move through 2015, the subject of the future of the supply chain has come back into focus. What does the future supply chain look like, and what do we expect some of the essential characteristics to be? Although this requires a degree of speculation, there are also some trends and technologies that clearly are having, and will continue to have, an enormous impact on the supply chain:

  • The next-generation supply chain will be a networked supply chain that will sit at the center of three lobes—demand aware, supply visible, and innovation networked.
  • Mobility, as well as modern mobile tools, continues to transform the way supply chains conduct their business.
  • Collaboration, via traditional or modern social media tools, is a critical capability for the future of the supply chain.
The ability to fully integrate the demand, supply, and innovation aspects of the supply chain into one networked entity is both exciting and unnerving. Data identification, capture, and analysis play a huge role in this future supply chain, and unless manufacturers plan to add employees (which we can assure you, they do not), the only practical solution is the deployment of technology solutions. In this white paper we discuss the importance of networks, mobility, and collaboration and the role we believe they must play in the future of the supply chain and the benefits that can accrue.

The Changing Role of the CIO


No department within an organization has undergone such a profound change as that of IT. The platforms used to deliver IT products and services, the tools of the trade and skillsets required to do the job have changed. On top of all that, the IT function is now being integrated into the company’s other operations and is expected to operate as a business within a business. Overseeing this sea change is the CIO. This paper examines how the role of the CIO has been evolving to meet today’s new world of IT.

The Many Angles to Dive into the BPM Water


These days, the concepts of business process management (BPM) have become more unified, and BPM functionality from different vendors seems to be more converged. However, organizations may have their own reasons for adopting BPM—different business features and requirements will lead to different matching points between adopting organizations and BPM solutions. In the mean time, BPM vendors are

The Need to Rethink the WAN


Technological advances have evolved at an exponential rate over recent decades—we’ve seen the advent of the Internet, cloud computing, virtualization, and several other technologies. But the wide area network (WAN) technologies that are currently in use in most branch offices have changed little since the 1990s.

Business environments today are experiencing unprecedented growth and change, and IT departments are losing visibility and control. Traditional WAN technologies are a mismatch for modern branch networks that need to be up and running quickly. The demand for adaptability, awareness of costs, and the need to run and monitor business-critical processes are indicating the necessity for a new WAN technology paradigm.

New WAN services based on the latest technologies have not been deployed by traditional service providers, primarily because they require an initial financial outlay which companies are not prepared to make. But they are poised to succeed multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), and are the most viable alternative for supporting application performance while dealing with increased network traffic and the connectivity demands of cloud computing and mobile access.

In this white paper, the characteristics of WAN technology and the limitations of traditional WAN technology, including complexity, are explored. This paper also discusses some new approaches, such as a hybrid WAN, which are better suited to supporting fast-changing business and technology environments.
