It happens every year – the General Rate Increase. As carriers increase their shipping rates to keep pace with the economy, shippers try to adjust and factor the annual increase into their business model. But there’s more to GRI than meets the eye. The GRI is just one of many variables in your shipping costs, and misjudging the GRI and other cost increases that might come along with it can be catastrophic to your bottom line if they are not managed properly.

Prior to implementing the Anaplan platform, RSA Group had a tedious spreadsheet-based, nine-month planning cycle riddled with data quality issues, which was compounded by siloed, functional fragmentation across the company. As a result, the finance team was spending a significant amount of time cleaning data rather than analyzing it to provide insight to key stakeholders throughout the business. Using the Anaplan platform, RSA Group reduced their financial planning process from nine months to five months. The workforce planning team experienced a 50% improvement in productivity. The business can now own their connected plans, resulting in improved decision support to business users, as well as improved customer service and financial results.

Noble Group needed to revamp its IT approach to support its technology and global business, which had in-house apps spread across 1,000 different servers around the world. Having worked with Rackspace previously, it had confidence in Rackspace’s expertise in IT transformation, and decided to take up its managed public cloud services for Microsoft Azure, and professional services for cloud migration, performance and scalability. Yet, this resulted in greater gained cost-savings and increased agility, as Noble moved its massive workloads to the Azure cloud with round-the-clock expertise from Rackspace. This proved to be a wise choice. To adapt to Noble Group’s fast changing business model, Rackspace needed to migrate 60 percent of its resources from on-premises infrastructure to Azure, following eight months of planning. At the end of the cloud migration, Noble Group successfully reduced the 2,000 servers from its infrastructure to just 200 servers.

In such a competitive business market, retaining the best talent is crucial. Knowing what makes them want to walk out the door is the first step in keeping them. The good news is that business leaders recognize the peril they face - and the need to do something about it. In a recent survey, 45% said they fear becoming obsolete in three to five years; 73% agree on the business need to prioritize technology, and 66% are planning to invest in IT infrastructure and digital skills leadership. However, investment without strategy is unlikely to succeed. Because innovation comes from people, investment must foster human creativity.
