The Definitive Enterprise Architecture Blueprint
As we approach a new decade, rapid technical changes and advances present a raft of new challenges for business leaders. For CIOs in particular, the stakes have never been so high; a plethora of new opportunity abounds, but get the dynamic between business and IT wrong, and the company will become fragmented, its tools and process unwieldy and impossible to manage.
An enterprise architecture practice makes it possible to model the entire organization and make informed strategic decisions. From here solutions across the business can be derived with a full understanding of their implications, and an effective realtime analysis of their success.
CIO Challenges: Mounting Technical Debt with an Unclear Roadmap
The concept of technical debt has been well understood in software development for decades, but it applies just as well to a firm’s overall technology infrastructure. Enterprises will often maintain legacy systems well beyond their useful life, or cut corners to meet project deadlines and then fail to adjust or update the technology workarounds used. As these old and low quality systems proliferate, costs rise and it becomes increasingly difficult to enact changes.
This eBook will look at how technical debt will mount for businesses and the difficulties of addressing this problem without a clear and sensible roadmap.

How To Save Millions by Moving To The Cloud
(No, that’s not a typo)
It’s funny how quickly things change, isn’t it?
In the midst of a remote working revolution, for many of us it’s hard to recall the days when you had to be on-site to access your files and emails. The cloud has well and truly embedded itself within our lives, and being able to open and edit documents from home, office, or coffee shop—is part of the new normal.
But if the new normal really is going to feature a dispersed workforce, then something needs to change.
And of course, access is only one of the many issues.
7 Aspects Sales Leaders Should Prioritize While Choosing A CRM
CRM or customer relationship management is an approach to manage your company's interactions with your current and potential customers. By using CRM software, you could store customer data and make use of it to engage with new clients and retain existing ones with ease. The system also helps your employees gain valuable insights into your sales, marketing, and service management processes to facilitate cooperation between multiple teams.
CRM systems are at the heart of modern business processes that depend on capturing, analyzing, and using customer information to make decisions.
Due to such insights, your sales, marketing, and service teams get a better understanding of strategies that work and the ones that don't. With these insights, they could adjust their workflows for the best possible outcomes.
CRM For Service Automation
Service Automation is a combination of workflow orchestration, workload automation, and resource provisioning across an organization's hybrid digital infrastructure.
In simpler words, Service Automation refers to the delivery of service activities in an automated manner, using a software or an online platform.
Apart from improving service accessibility, Service Automation also frees your team to concentrate on value-based activities that have the potential of building better relationships with customers through personalization.
CRM For Sales Automation
Sales Automation refers to a system that automates time-consuming, manual tasks related to sales. It aims to mechanize all repetitive and redundant activities in the entire sales process so that the time and resources of your sales team would not be drained in carrying them out.
Though these redundant activities are important and without them, your sales pipeline would get severely affected, they do not require humans to complete them. A Sales Automation software such as an advanced CRM uses digital tools and Artificial Intelligence to step in and complete these tasks on your behalf.
Sales Automation works 24/7, all 365 days of the year, providing you with valuable insights and ensuring you do not miss out on anything, whether it is a client meeting that you lost track of, or an invoice you were supposed to send out. It reduces the margin of error very significantly as AI-powered tools take over and ensure accuracy in every operation.
CRM For Marketing Automation
Marketing automation is the use of technology to assist marketers in handling customer data management, customer segmentation, and campaign management automatically across multiple channels. Because the data is easily accessible in the CRM software, it empowers marketers to offer targeted, data-driven, and real-time campaigns with enhanced efficiency and productivity.
The main goal of Marketing Automation is to improve customer engagement, lead nurturing process, qualified lead pipeline, campaign measurability, campaign productivity, and sales revenue.
Organizations adopting Marketing Automation should select the right CRM software to integrate their marketing systems and streamline all marketing processes. However, they also need to carefully review their internal needs and the software capabilities. This would avoid the redundancies with existing technologies and unnecessary investments.
