    • Throwback to the 80’s – Run IT as a Just-In-Time (JIT) Business
      Throwback to the 80’s – Run IT as a Just-In-Time (JIT) Business AnneMarie Fernandez, Director Business Innovation Recorded: Jun 9 2016 4:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • Concepts from lean manufacturing of the 80’s are back in a big way. In the 80’s, companies were implementing ERP/Supply chain systems to reach the almost mythical philosophy of Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing - that meant zero lead time, zero inventory and zero failures. It was a radical approach to running a business that carried with it skepticism and confusion. When Dell announced that they had Zero stock on hand it was big news. But it inspired others. It raised the bar for companies, competitors and their suppliers to up their game. In order for JIT to work it meant high quality machines, reliable suppliers and flexible resources – and most of all insight into all nooks and crannies of the supply chain. We find ourselves in this same trial and error phase, similar philosophies and yearning to be lean and mean with IT (and all Enterprise) Services. Louder than ever is the call to provide great customer service and for IT to execute ruthlessly to provide the fuel that powers the business – and have to execute as such. JIT concepts in IT put its focus on customer results in a way that minimizes waste and time. In this talk we’ll explore specific approaches to transform to a JIT IT organization and the benefits of that.

      Business Continuity in the Hybrid Cloud: Be Prepared Comcast Business Upcoming: Aug 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Whether it’s caused by hardware failure, human error, natural disaster, cyber-attack, or other issue, downtime can have a serious impact on your business. Your employees and customers expect constant connectivity and a seamless experience. Fortunately, the cloud’s 24/7 anytime/anywhere service, elasticity, immediate connectivity, automated backup, and related features make it easier to maintain business continuity. More than 81 percent of enterprises recognize the BC/DR advantages of the cloud and employ a multi-cloud strategy, and more than half (51 percent) have a hybrid cloud strategy, according to RightScale. While the hybrid cloud can optimize business continuity, it needs to be architected to do so.
