Crossing the Chasm Between Demand Intake and Business Outcomes

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
Modern solutions like CA PPM continue to raise the bar above last-generation IT demand management tools, continuously providing new features to ease the burden of the PMO, the financial manager, the resource manager and the product manager. In the last few years, new vendors looking to exploit the large and increasingly influential project and portfolio management (PPM) market have developed modules that “snap” into their SaaS platforms. These vendors claim their tools are easy to install, easy to manage and save customers money. It sounds too good to be true. And for most organizations, it is. Carefully consider whether you need a PPM solution that is only capable of providing low-level functionality for the project manager, or if your organization could benefit from PPM technology that provides 360-degree optics across your organization, delivers actionable business intelligence and enables extensive modeling and forecasting capabilities to make data-driven business decisions.

TDWI Report/Checklist “Delivering Business Value Faster with Visual Analytics” (2016)

Published By: Oracle Analytics     Published Date: Oct 06, 2017
Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance. Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse data preparation features for better data access. They support collaboration, mashups, and storytelling. TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern, up-to-date tools for working with data.

Better IT Decisions

Published By: HP - Enterprise     Published Date: Jun 04, 2013
Businesses are overwhelmed with data; it’s a blessing and a curse. A curse because it can overwhelm traditional approaches to storing and processing it. A blessing because the data promises business insight that never existed earlier. The industry has spawned a new term, “big data,” to describe it. Now, IT itself is overwhelmed with its own big data. In the press to roll out new services and technologies—mobility, cloud, virtualization—applications, networks, and physical and virtual servers grow in a sprawl. With them comes an unprecedented volume of data such as logs, events, and flows. It takes too much time and resources to sift through it, so most of it lies unexplored and unexploited. Yet like business data, it contains insight that can help us solve problems, make decisions, and plan for the future.
