Why SaaS Outperforms On-Premise

If you've recently explored investing in a new software tool for your company, chances are it was a SaaS application. SaaS, or Software as a Service, is a software licensing and delivery model where companies "subscribe" to a software license and the software is hosted in a central location in the cloud instead of at the company's location, which is known as "on-premise..."

KMWorld White Paper Series

***Coming in September/October 2016***

Best Practices in Information Governance

Information is by nature non-governable.

But people are. Whether you use automation or policies or both— the way people USE information can be controlled. There are plenty of solutions available to help you. If you have compliance, regulatory or legal-risk issues—and that describes everyone—there is an answer for your information governance quandary.

This KMWorld White Paper will look for the BEST solutions in managing and leveraging business and organizational assets to improve performance and protect against risk.

Best Practices in Cognitive Computing

Cognitive computing is not science fiction. From chatbots to self-driving cars, the market is evolving, and it’s on track to disrupt our everyday lives.

At the most basic level, a cognitive information system needs to be capable of extracting relevant information from big and diverse data sets to make intelligence decisions. Of course, that is easier said than done.

Share how your company is providing the resources that are paving the way forward in this exciting movement by participating in this White Paper opportunity.

Best Practices for the Mobile Workforce

It's hard to imagine a larger effect than the social and mobile workforce has had on the everyday activity on knowledge workers.

The ability to take work home (or work from home entirely) and conduct business through social media-driven interaction has changed the entire landscape.

But it has also changed businesses, as organizations try to cope with a world in which employees walk off the grounds with critical corporate information on their handhelds, and where communication and collaboration don’t necessarily happen by walking to the office next door.
