The Path to Value is a social media hub created by Oxford Economics and Windstream. Along with its companion Twitter feed, the site provides a forum for news and discussion about the ways companies are planning and executing their migrations to cloud computing environments, and also looks at ways they realize and measure the value of these efforts. The site excerpts and publicizes the output of a large-scale research programme on cloud technology, which includes a survey of executives, in-depth interviews with corporate stakeholders, desk research, and the contents of the blog itself.

The Code Halos iPad app illustrates insights expanded upon in our white paper The Value of Sound (and the Cost of Noise) analysing the economic value of “best in class” analytics in lowering costs and improving revenues.
The 300 companies we surveyed told us they achieved a total economic benefit of roughly $766 billion over the past year based on their use of business analytics. Big Data analytics investments, they say, yielded an average 8.4% increase in revenues and an average 8.1% improvement in cost reduction in the previous fiscal year.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are operating in the same business environment as large multinationals and must navigate the same challenges, such as increasing globalisation, heavy competition, new customers in new markets, and fast-changing technologies. This online slideshow presents the seven ways SMEs are reinventing global business, and provides an overview of the entire project.
We produced four briefing papers based on our global survey of more than 2,000 SME executives and a series of interviews with SME leaders. Themes included The Global Mindset; Technology and Transformation; The Human Factor; and Innovation and Differentiation. The project also included a series of infographics, exploring the four themes and major findings in depth.
The Service Imperative
External shifts and technological changes are reshaping the landscape for manufacturing firms. Oxford Economics partnered with PTC to conduct a global research study of executives across several industries and functions to uncover the market and technology shifts remaking manufacturing. We found successful transformation is grounded by rethinking strategy and planning, the service imperative, and prioritizing innovation everywhere.
As part of this study, we developed an easily sharable presentation that details our major findings and insights.
