Illumiti, SungardAS, and Cisco are pleased to present our whitepaper study “ERP in the Cloud for Mining Companies”. Learn about key benefits and challenges of Cloud ERP and how senior executives in the mining industry are planning their future cloud strategy.

The new canary in the mine is a 2014 report by the Economist Intelligence Unit exploring how mobile technologies are transforming the energy and natural-resources sector.

Mining companies face challenges including decreasing reserves, increasing equipment complexity across facilities, rising equipment, parts and contractor costs, and declining commodity prices.

While mobile technologies have long been in use in other asset intensive industries, such as utilities and oil & gas, the mining industry has been relatively slow to adopt mobile apps.

This IDC executive brief takes a look at the use of analytics throughout an organization to inform decision making and is based on an IDC survey of 439 Canadian businesses with $100 million or more in revenue.

In this Thought Leadership paper, Mint Jutras, an independent research-based consulting firm specializing in analyzing the business impact of enterprise applications, examines the overall impact new ERP solutions have on small and mid-sized businesses.

Small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to putting the power of technology solutions to work for their businesses.

To grow and prosper, they must often overcome the same challenges faced by their large competitors, including global competition, complex regulations, evolving operational processes and product diversification. SMEs, however, must meet these challenges—and capitalize on these opportunities—with budget and staffing resources that pale in comparison to those of their enterprise counterparts.

Learn how SMEs tap powerful ERP software solutions to set the stage for long-term growth, competitiveness and success. SAP Business All-in-One solutions can give growing SMEs a streamlined, affordable way to deploy SAP’s enterprise-class ERP today while getting the running room they’ll need for tomorrow.

Business intelligence (BI) allows business users to analyze and better understand their organization’s plans and results. It provides insight into what’s working correctly while identifying potential problem areas in time for corrective actions to be taken. Find out how BI can help keep your midsize company ahead of the competition and how to choose the right BI product from the right vendor

This TDWI Checklist Report describes the fundamental aspects of BI that are necessary to help small and midsize enterprises achieve scalability by revealing new business opportunities, enabling rapid response to emerging issues, and continuously monitoring business success.

Business transformation has become an imperative for growth-minded SMEs. To compete with global rivals—including larger firms—they must do things differently than in the past. That means adopting technologies that once were out of their reach. It means rethinking business models and go-to-market strategies to enhance growth prospects. And it may mean enduring some growing pains.

The Oxford Research survey of 2,100 SMEs in 21 countries, conducted in the second quarter of 2013, clearly indicates that transformation has become a strategic necessity and, for many companies, a key to survival.

Innovation has never been more critical to SMEs. In a global economy driven by increasingly empowered consumers, small and midsized firms must find ways to stand out from their competitors and create tighter bonds with their customers. Technology is vital to success on these fronts, along with a focus on creating new products and services to meet evolving customer needs. This study of 2,100 executives from SMEs in 21 countries shows they grasp this changing reality.

Small and medium-sized enterprises are highly engaged in globalization. They are subject to the same trends and economic forces that affect larger companies, and they are mounting a vigorous response to them. This study of 2,100 SMEs in 21 countries confirms the internationalization of this vital economic sector. The roster of SMEs generating more than 40% of revenue outside their home country will increase by 66% in three years, while those doing business in at least six countries will jump 129%…

Illumiti, in collaboration with Sungard AS, and Cisco released their joint survey based research paper cloud ERP for Asset Intensive Industries – Driving Strategic Decisions to Leverage the Cloud.

Not too long ago, business support of mobile workers centered on managing the use of a limited number of Windows-based laptops and BlackBerry smartphones. Today mobile phones are ubiquitous for almost all employees, and IT departments are being asked to manage, support and figure out how to protect data from theft and security breaches….

Forward-thinking enterprises use mobile technology across their organizations to give employees, suppliers, and customers access to appropriate data when and where they need it.

Technology has made businesses more global and mobile. These trends have created new business opportunities, but they have also increased competition, which has been a key driver behind the adoption of technologies that give businesses a greater reach through more mobile operations. Smartphones and tablets have become essential tools in today’s business environment. Yet, how does business mobility provide a competitive advantage?

How to become more efficient, profitable and collaborative?

Not in the past half-century has the construction industry faced such a challenging mix of economic conditions. Stagnant demand, budget-constrained property owners, and high costs are forcing many construction company executives to rethink their business goals, strategies, and supporting technologies.

Key to this recalibration is a focus on growth. How can your organization grow profitably for the long term? What changes can your construction company make to mitigate risk and avoid the deep valleys of slow economic cycles? Which business processes can most effectively drive growth? How can technology enable those processes?

Read this thought leadership paper outlining some of the key challenges faced by construction companies and how to find the right ERP software to enable them to close performance gaps and support business growth.

The engineering, construction and operations industry (EC&O) has experienced seismic shifts over the past few years. A struggling economy and an evolving workforce, combined with advances in technology, have made change a necessary part of the construction firm. With that, firms have had to adapt their processes, structure, and competencies in order to continue to thrive.

Today’s environment for construction companies is tougher than ever before. Tight margins, intense competition, and demands for faster completion times are increasing risks and putting enormous pressure on Construction and Engineering firms. Part of that change has come in the form of adapting technology solutions. In 2014, construction firms should be aware of key technology trends that will allow them to be more agile, competitive, and efficient. Our report will serve to provide an overview of four key trends for 2014; Flexibility, Mobility, Talent Management, and Building Information Modeling (BIM).
