Make Faster and More Precise Decisions in a Real-Time World

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Apr 27, 2018
Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now. Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data can now be processed in memory, and more significantly, analyzed as it arrives, in real time. Millions to hundreds of millions of events (such as video streams or application alerts) can be collected and analyzed per hour to deliver insights that can be acted upon in an instant. From financial services to manufacturing, this rev

Think Big Data, Think Amazon Web Services

Published By: Amazon     Published Date: Nov 07, 2013
Until recently, it has been far cheaper and easier to produce and store data than to process it. Companies have the option to buy large, multi-million dollar hardware devices to process their big data, but with budgets under pressure and no clear way to calculate returns on investment, the business case is difficult to make… And when analysts explain to the CTO that they only need the hardware for six months, for one day a week, or for one hour a day, the investment becomes impossible to justify. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn how by eliminating the traditionally high ‘cost of entry’ for big data analysis, Amazon Web Services is enabling customers to convert more raw data into more valuable business insight.

CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity

Published By: Centrify Corporation     Published Date: Apr 13, 2018
As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

Published By: Adobe     Published Date: Mar 16, 2016
While most business is digital, and business-to-business and business-to-consumer transactions – and the work that supports them -- are almost entirely digitized, most organizations still rely on paper for the “last foot” of the process – the sign-off.
