Tight budgets can make for tough choices, especially in today's competitive environment where business seems to move faster every day. For many organizations, understanding the total economic impact (TEI) of an IT solution-including all the risks and rewards-can influence a business leader's decisions. This month's spotlight features a recent Forrester case study that focuses on the real value of the services we deliver. We believe understanding the TEI of solutions helps executives make the right economic choices to advance their business goals.

In this issue, we also share insights from our experts on topics like the importance of APIs for multi-channel success, advantages of mobile micro-learning, and other aspects of digital transformation. Our innovative solutions and collaborative approach with companies around the world has led to our recognition as a top 10 service provider and IT company.
