Our business technologies and industry-specific solutions bring you closer to your customer—helping you work better together, making new opportunities possible. For referral-service entrepreneurs-who act as a “welcome wagon” to newcomers-getting to know new as well as existing businesses pays off in more ways than one.

Under previous regulations, companies generally had to collect and manage approximately 10 data points about each lease. Under new rules, they will need to collect and manage an estimated 25-70 points. Many current lease management systems were not designed to handle this level of granularity, and extracting the data presents its own challenges. Additionally, leases often experience frequent turnover, so new data will near-constantly need to be entered into the system.
Business services are delivered to customers, supporting their needs, sometimes through the support for a business process or directly supporting a service or product delivered to end customers. A business service may be supported by one or more IT service(s), and may consist almost entirely of IT services especially where the IT service is directly customer-facing. Examples include online banking and online shopping.

Additionally, newer technologies such as service-oriented architectures (SOA), virtualization , cloud computing , portal frameworks , grid architectures , and mashups within an organization make troubleshooting and monitoring of business services very difficult. 5 A single business process or service may be supported by a number of composite applications, all of which could be dependent on a diverse set of distributed computing and communications elements. 6 An isolated issue anywhere in this complex web may impact one or more tasks in the business process. Traditional network management systems and technology-centric monitoring approaches are incapable of determining the business impact of an issue in such a complicated infrastructure environment. This has given rise to application performance management and the real user monitoring (RUM) technology that now monitors the end user experience (EUE) in real-time.
