Vendor selection
CFOs are turning to business process management (BPM) tools to ensure their departments are efficient, transparent and compliant. When it comes to acquiring BPM tools, there are two types of vendors according to Clay Richardson, senior analyst at Forrester Research. “…some vendors provide interfaces to systems of record, such as SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Siebel that contain the data, he said. "Those systems are designed more for record entry, much like a database. They're not designed for human engagement…" vs “…other vendors of BPM tools are focusing more on systems of engagement where the aim is to deliver favorable work experiences while allowing people to get tasks done more quickly. With these vendors, "it's more about the user interface design and task design than the process model…" Which of these two approaches to BPM tools do you believe is more successful?

How do you measure the success of your enterprise social media initiatives?

When I first started in Social Media, the goal was to get more followers, more fans, etc.The thought was once we hit critical mass, we’ll figure out a way to make money. That was 10 years ago and it is quite surprising to see companies still engaging in that practice while there are many ways to track the real value of your social media endeavors; and more importantly, what your customers want from you.So is your company still following the old playbook? If not, what tools and techniques is your company using to track the value of your social media campaigns? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh

What’s the best way to deliver results for enterprise customers?

In a Q&A keynote Tuesday at the 2013 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit, Symantec CEO Steve Bennett noted that that no single vendor can offer an all-encompassing mobile security product portfolio. Instead, IT security vendors should cooperate to build a better ecosystem than attackers can, and focus less on competing for customers' security budgets. "There's no way, no matter what anyone tells you, that they can solve this problem by themselves." Bennett said. "None of these shiny new objects people are pushing will solve your problems." Do you believe this to be a true statement, or more a reflection of how Symantec would like to approach to mobile security in the future? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh
