MicroStrategy 2019™ The Platform For The Intelligent Enterprise

Published By: MicroStrategy     Published Date: Aug 28, 2019
Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve.

It Takes More Than Good Instincts to Grow Your Business

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Apr 05, 2017
Today’s financial professionals have access to robust tools that offer a detailed picture of a company’s success in real time. With dashboards reporting in-depth data, a CFO can merely glance at a computer to analyze how well the business is doing in key areas. Despite the impressive technology available today, many businesses have yet to make a change. In a survey of 1,500 finance professionals, nearly half reported relying on gut instinct rather than hard data to make important business decisions. The survey—commissioned by Epicor and conducted by Redshift Research Ltd.—also revealed that a majority of CFOs and financial decision-makers are still relying on spreadsheets to interpret business data. In our “Instinct Meets Insight” eBook, you can explore the survey results and learn how a modern financial IT infrastructure lets decision-makers back up instinct with relevant data they can use to help their businesses grow.

Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing.

Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%

Published By: Tripp Lite     Published Date: May 15, 2018
As organizations pursue improvements in reliability and energy efficiency, power design in data centers gets substantial attention—particularly from facilities and engineering personnel.

In?rack power is often considered less strategically important than which servers or databases to deploy, and it is often one of the last decisions to be made in the overall design of the data center.

Smart analytics pay dividends across the customer lifecycle: Read TM Forum Quick Insights Report

Published By: FICO EMEA     Published Date: Jan 25, 2019
Communications service providers (CSPs) have long recognized the potential of data analytics. Yet their early efforts to pull actionable intelligence from the oceans of data they have access to were largely unsuccessful.

The arrival of artificial intelligence (AI) – its machine learning subset in particular – has changed their thinking and approach. For this Quick Insights report, we surveyed 64 professionals from CSPs around the world who are applying, leveraging and/ or planning to deploy advanced analytics in some capacity at various points across the customer lifecycle.
