Nordic IT solutions provider EVRY has taken automation and agility to new heights in its training and documentation of IT products and services, and found that even small steps can make a valuable return on user adoption patterns.

By using HP's Adoption Readiness Tool (ART) to help its employees work better with IT management solutions and processes, EVRY, based in Oslo, has gained new advantages in the adoption and understanding of both new and existing technology.

BriefingsDirect had an opportunity to learn first-hand how EVRY mastered production of documentation and readiness tools when we interviewed Sigve Sandvik, Solution Adviser at EVRY, at the recent HP Discover 2013 Conference in Barcelona. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions. [Learn more about HP ART.]

The next BriefingsDirect thought-leader interview focuses on the fascinating subject of preparing for the workforce of the future. It's now clear that we are entering into a very diverse and even unprecedented work environment -- something the world perhaps has never known.

But how do enterprises prepare, and how do they create the means to analyze and manage the transition to very different work environments? BriefingsDirect had an opportunity to learn first-hand at the recent 2014 Ariba LIVE Conference in Las Vegas. 

To learn more about hiring and acquiring talent and managing a diverse and socially engaged -- and even more knowledge-driven workforce -- we sat down with Shawn Price, President for Global Cloud and Line of Business at SAP, and the former President of SuccessFactors, now part of SAP. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions

Business trends like bring your own device (BYOD) are forcing organizations to safely allow access to all kinds of applications and resources anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

According to research firm MarketsandMarkets, the demand for improved identity and access management (IAM) technology is estimated to grow from more than $5 billion this year to over $10 billion in 2018.

The explosive growth -- doubling of the market in five years -- will also fuel the move to more pervasive use of identity and access management as a service (IDaaS). The cloud variety of IAM will be driven on by the need for pervasive access and management over other cloud, mobile, and BYOD activities, as well as by the consumerization of IT and broader security concerns.

To explore the why and how of IDaaS, BriefingsDirect recently sat down with Paul Trulove, Vice President of Product Marketing at SailPoint Technologies in Austin, Texas, to explore the changing needs for -- and heightened value around -- improved IAM.

We also discover how new IDaaS offerings are helping companies far better protect and secure their information assets. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

The relationship between enterprise IT and lines of business leadership has not always been rosy. Sometimes IT holds the upper hand, and sometimes the business does an end-run around IT to use new tools or processes. They might even call it innovation.

Today, with the push toward big data and business intelligence (BI), a new chasm is growing between enterprise IT groups and business units. But, in this case, it could be disastrous because IT should be a big part of the big data execution.

The next BriefingsDirect discussion therefore examines how an ebb and flow between IT centralization and decentralization that swings in the direction of business groups, and even shadow IT, now runs the risk of neglecting essential management security and scalability requirements.

Indeed, big data and analytics should actually force more collaboration and lifecycle-based relationships among and between business and IT groups. For those organizations -- where innovation is being divorced from IT discipline -- we'll explore ways that a comprehensive and virtuous adoption of rigorous and protected data insights can both make the business stronger and make IT more valued.

To get to the bottom of why, BriefingsDirect recently sat down with John Whittaker, Senior Director of Marketing for Dell Software's Information Management Solutions Group. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions
