Gartner Report Evaluates Concur's Use of the Nexus of Forces In Travel Expense Management

Concur's Perfect Trip vision cited as example of how the nexus could impact travel expense management technologies

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Concur (NASDAQ: CNQR), a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions, today announced the availability of a complimentary Gartner Report "Evaluating Concur's Use of  the Nexus of Forces in Travel Expense Management". This report, made available here, provides a framework to modernize, innovate and improve immediacy to Travel and Expense Management (TEM) processes. The Nexus of Forces is a Gartner concept describing four forces – cloud, mobile, information and social – that combine to create a new era of computing and opportunities for business.

The nexus provides a framework to modernize, innovate and improve immediacy to TEM processes, by leveraging these four forces:

  • The cloud which enables anytime-anywhere access with a Web browser without VPN logins or time-consuming steps to access the system.
  • Mobile applications which allow travelers to interact directly with the TEM system, in the moment, in a user experience designed and optimized for a mobile device.
  • Information which can be captured, analyzed and used to negotiate better terms and conditions with suppliers and gain insight into the effectiveness of their travel and entertainment spend.
  • A social element which can use concepts learned from the consumer social world to reduce costs for the company and allow greater internal cohesion and collaboration by enabling spontaneity.

"Thousands of organizations of all sizes – with millions of business travelers – trust Concur every day to help them manage travel and expenses," said Rajeev Singh, president and COO of Concur. "Through our cloud-based solutions and open platform, Concur clients are leveraging mobile technology and big data to drive costs out of their businesses. The value becomes even more compelling as the ecosystem forming around Concur's vision of The Perfect Trip dynamically responds to the needs of business travelers, the companies that they work for and the suppliers that serve them."

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
