Are You Ready for Healthcare's Digital Age?


Healthcare organizations are increasingly relying on technology to provide excellent care to patients while minimizing their costs. As such, healthcare providers are dependent on information technology (IT) to accomplish their daily activities and provide the most effective treatments for their patients. Thus, they require mission-critical applications—such as electronic health records, computerized physician order entry, and practice management systems—to be available 100% of the time and for the IT network to be as efficient as possible.

However, it has become increasingly challenging to accomplish these tasks due to the increased complexity of the IT landscape, trouble pinpointing root causes of IT issues, and lack of proactive support for preventing the emergence of issues as well as resolving emerging issues early on. The reason has to do with lack of insight into the performance of the organization’s applications and the performance of the IT network. Healthcare providers today require a performance management tool that affords complete visibility into all aspects of the organization’s IT infrastructure.

Find out how today’s performance management tools can help your healthcare organization get a unified view into your IT network and mission-critical application performance, proactively monitor and fix issues, and enable continuous improvement—so that you can focus on delivering exceptional care to your patients.

The Makings of a Great ERP User Experience


In recent years, it has become evident that all vendors of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions provide robust functional capabilities or partner with best-of-breed solutions to fill functional gaps. But one area where ERP solution providers are beginning to differentiate themselves is how they deliver on user interface, thereby shaping a user’s experience within the system. But what makes a great user experience?

It's vital to ensure that the user experience elements that your company needs, such as embedded BI elements and social or mobile capabilities, are not just present but presented well. You should be able to personalize and customize your user experience, but above all, the ERP system should be easy to use and help accomplish your business goals. Organizations seeking an ERP solution should give user experience proper consideration when creating a shortlist of best-fit solutions.

In this report, TEC Senior ERP Analyst Ted Rohm breaks down some of the best and must-have user experience elements, talks about advancements in user experience, and looks at future directions in this area in ERP systems.

Put the Customer First: Managing the User Experience


Customers are demanding increasingly high levels of service—they want what they want, as soon as they want it. Networks need to be faster than ever, and more reliable, to satisfy exacting customer standards.

While organizations often rely on a patchwork of network resources to deliver their services, customers expect their experience to be seamless. Network managers need to monitor those resources more proactively for a holistic view that considers network availability, network performance, and service quality. This demands a shift in focus from hardware to a deeper understanding of service provision and the customer experience. It also requires an evolved skill set, and new application-monitoring tools.

This white paper explores the evolution of networks, including the idea of user-centric networks and network virtualization, and the technology that will support it.

In-application performance support is thus of tangible benefit to users—and to your organization as a whole.
