2013 Highlights:

  • In addition to being named the largest VMS provider by Staffing Industry Analysts' annual report for the fifth consecutive year, Fieldglass reported 69 new customer awards in 2013. The growth demonstrates that organizations of varying program sizes, scope and geographic reach continue to find that Fieldglass is the best long-term partner for their needs. This new business also further extends the company's stronghold as the preferred VMS provider within a number of key industries including pharmaceutical, energy, financial services and telecommunications.
  • Multiple award programs recognized Fieldglass for both its product innovation and strategic vision this past year. Fieldglass won the CODiE award for "Best Human Capital/Talent Management Solution" for its VMS' usability as well as ease and speed of implementation. Also noteworthy, the company won the Illinois Technology Association CityLIGHTS "Lighthouse" award for its part in elevating Chicago's technology community through product, business and industry leadership.
  • Demonstrating its broad, global use, the Fieldglass VMS was accessed by two million new users and in 15 languages in 2013. To support this growth, the company extended its customer support offerings to include a multi-lingual, 24/7 helpdesk to serve users in more than 100 countries.

Anticipated 2014 Trends:

  • Fieldglass customers are taking a mature, strategic approach to their flexible labor programs in 2014. With the core part of the contingent workforce now stabilized, companies are seeking additional opportunities to improve their programs via category-specific supplier management practices and advanced analytics using data modeling and optimization.
  • A strong trend that will undoubtedly continue to grow is a greater emphasis on SOW spend management. Validating its pioneering, pattern-based approach and significant technology investments, Fieldglass customer adoption of SOW grew by 80 percent in 2013.
  • Many customers are using the Fieldglass VMS to drive compliance to the European Union's Agency Workers Directive and its country-specific interpretations. As the largest and most-tenured VMS in the major European markets, Fieldglass has established a set of implementation best practices that will likely drive higher VMS adoption in Western Europe in particular.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
