ZK: Is the Enterprise Ready for Network Functions Virtualization?

Published By: Cisco     Published Date: Jul 11, 2016
Digital transformation has become a top mandate for almost every IT and business leader. The ZK Research 2015 IT Priorities Survey found that 79% of businesses currently have a digital transformation initiative in progress (Exhibit 1). In the digital era, competitive advantage is no longer determined by which company has the best products or even the best people. Market leadership is based on an organization’s ability to analyze information, gain insights and make fast decisions to capitalize on market transitions. One important step in the journey to becoming a digital organization is to transform into an agile business—and it is impossible to do so without having an agile IT infrastructure to enable it. This is why businesses spent more than $12 billion on technology in 2015 to make IT more agile, according to ZK Research.

From Business Insight To Business Action

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 03, 2017
Businesses today certainly do not suffer from a lack of data. Every day, they capture and consume massive amounts of information that they use to make strategic and tactical decisions. Yet organizations often lack two critical capabilities when it comes to making the right decisions for the business: the ability to make accurate predictions about the future, and to then use those predicted insights in conjunction with organizational goals to identify the best possible actions they should take. The combination of predictive analytics and decision optimization provides organizations with the ability to turn insight into action. Predictive analytics offers insights into likely scenarios by analyzing trends, patterns and relationships in data. Decision optimization prescribes best-action recommendations given an organization’s business goals and business dynamics, taking into account any tradeoffs or consequences associated with those actions.

Seven principles for achieving high performance and scalability for information integration

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 03, 2017
Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.

Microsoft Dynamics RoleTailored Business Productivity

Published By: Microsoft Dynamics     Published Date: Jul 23, 2007
Businesses don’t garner insights or make decisions. Businesses don’t close deals, invent new products, or find new efficiencies. People do. Companies excel when they empower their people to drive the business forward. But to see results, you also have to give your people the right tools, information, and opportunities—because success ultimately comes down to your people.

TDWI Best Practices Report: Operationalizing and Embedding Analytics for Action

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jan 04, 2019
As the pace of business continues to accelerate, forward-looking organizations are beginning to realize that it is not enough to analyze their data; they must also take action on it. To do this, more businesses are beginning to systematically operationalize their analytics as part of a business process. Operationalizing and embedding analytics is about integrating actionable insights into systems and business processes used to make decisions. These systems might be automated or provide manual, actionable insights. Analytics are currently being embedded into dashboards, applications, devices, systems, and databases. Examples run from simple to complex and organizations are at different stages of operational deployment. Newer examples of operational analytics include support for logistics, customer call centers, fraud detection, and recommendation engines to name just a few. Embedding analytics is certainly not new but has been gaining more attention recently as data volumes and the freq

Patterns in Achieving Social Business Success by Leading and Pioneering Organizations

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Feb 14, 2014
A social business is an organization whose culture and systems encourage networks of people to create business value. Social businesses connect individuals, so they can rapidly share information, knowledge and ideas by having conversations and publishing informal content. They analyze social content from multiple channels and sources, in addition to structured data, to gain insights from both external and internal stakeholders. When those things happen, innovation and business execution rates increase, better decisions are made, and customers and employees are more engaged and satisfied. Social businesses enjoy lower operating costs, faster speed-to-market, improved customer and employee engagement, and increased profitability. Many organizations don’t fully appreciate the magnitude of the value creation potential of social business.

Architecting a Big Data Platform for Analytics by Mike Ferguson

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 05, 2014
For many years, companies have been building data warehouses to analyze business activity and produce insights for decision makers to act on to improve business performance. These traditional analytical systems are often based on a classic pattern where data from multiple operational systems is captured, cleaned, transformed and integrated before loading it into a data warehouse. Typically, a history of business activity is built up over a number of years allowing organizations to use business intelligence (BI) tools to analyze, compare and report on business performance over time. In addition, subsets of this data are often extracted from data warehouses into data marts that have been optimized for more detailed multi-dimensional analysis.
