Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/20/2015 -- Ultriva examines the cause of forecast errors each week. Forecast Errors, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by Ultriva, Inc. shares methods, modes, and tools used to inform manufacturers of forecast errors faced on the manufacturing floor, with a variety of supply chain industries. The newsletter explores forecast errors as the difference between the actual and predicted value. In the current issue, Forecast Errors reviewed what separates best-in-class companies from those firms which struggle with accuracy.
Recently Ultriva shared data results from Gartner News which reported that global buyers of cloud applications cite cost, innovation, and agility as reasons for adoption (according to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc.). Gartner conducted a survey across ten countries in four regions to examine organizations' adoption and deployment of cloud services across SaaS, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS). "The most commonly cited reasons the survey found for deploying SaaS were for development and testing production/mission-critical workloads," said Joanne Correia, research vice president at Gartner. "We've seen a real transition from use cases in previous surveys where early SaaS adoption focused on smaller pilot projects. Today, the projects are mission-critical and production grade. This is an affirmation that more businesses are comfortable with cloud deployments beyond the front office running sales force automation (SFA) and email."
