IT is still unable to fully satisfy its customers’ requirements despite the introduction of best practices such as ITIL®, COBIT, ASL, BiSL and ISO 20000. IT is still at the top of the list as the No. 1 source of irritation in the workplace. It’s time for a radical new look at IT, using the IT best practices listed above as useful tools, but not necessarily as prerequisites. This time around, however, the customer will take centre stage, i.e. the customer experience. This term is used extensively in marketing circles, but is virtually unheard of in IT circles.
The authors of this white paper have defined the correlation between IT’s work and customer experience. In doing so, they’ve established a tangible link between daily IT management/staff activities and the IT customer’s experience. In doing so, they’ve applied principles commonly found within industry and translated these into useful, practical tools. Important focus areas in this respect include the customer, how the customer views IT’s services, reducing backlogs, eliminating waste,
and time allocation as a major IT productivity and performance boost.
This paper is intended for CIOs and IT managers who are looking to drastically improve their IT performance and customer satisfaction levels by placing the customer experience centre stage and without necessarily incurring additional costs. Once you’ve read this paper, you’ll be better able to manage your IT-related affairs based on customer value, thereby improving IT performance and satisfaction levels significantly.

Pancreatic cancer, a silent killer. Let’s find out what disease is this, and perhaps the latest technology research may help us to save more lives.
We have little known about pancreatic cancer in Malaysia as it’s not common, which also reflects diagnostic capacity rather than the actual incidence. But, the good news is that this cancer is relatively rare form of cancer, but in most cases, the cancer has already metastasized by the time of diagnosis. It’s a silent killer as the symptoms and signs are vague and very difficult to detect in the early stage. Therefore, this is one of reasons for high mortality rate of pancreatic cancer.
It’s estimated this cancer hits 2 per 100,000 (men) and 1.2 per 100,000 (women) and it develops so quietly that many patients don’t stand a good chance of survival. Medical researchers claimed that it’s also a disease affected older people and there was a male preponderance. According to the experts or consultants in the study of pancreatic cancer, the disease can consider quite aggressive cancer due to usually it shows at a late stage. The worst part is it may lead the patient going around and round to seek advice and treatment before they get the correct diagnosis and it has a high mortality rate.
