Rethink Networking for the Cloud Era white paper

Published By: Riverbed DE     Published Date: Oct 16, 2017
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN? To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users. But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere. Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking. This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access. Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you: • Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks. • Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users. • Deploy locally with zero touch via automated

Creating a Safety Culture

Published By: SambaSaftey     Published Date: Mar 15, 2019
Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

"Companies need to provide a seamless experience for their road warriors who are traversing the globe in search of new clients, attending conferences, exploring new business opportunities and checking on projects.

Creating a realistic travel policy that is clear, simple and easily accessible makes employees happy. A quick and hassle-free travel expense management process reduces traveler stress, enabling

The SAS Data Governance Framework: A Blueprint for Success

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Apr 16, 2015
The framework presented here is a way to avoid data dysfunction via a coordinated and well-planned governance initiative. These initiatives require two elements related to the creation and management of data: • The business inputs to data strategy decisions via a policy development process. • The technology levers needed to monitor production data based on the policies. Collectively, data governance artifacts (policies, guiding principles and operating procedures) give notice to all stakeholders and let them know, “We value our data as an asset in this organization, and this is how we manage it.”

Simplifying Fraud Analytics: 10 Steps to Detect and Prevent Insurance Fraud

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Aug 03, 2016
Insurance fraud has existed wherever insurance policies are written, taking different forms to suit the economic times. Today the magnitude of insurance fraud is not only startling but increasing. Recent studies by the US National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) reported a 24 percent rise in questionable claims for the period 2011 to 2013. The full scale of insurance fraud is not known. And if fraudulent behavior is not discovered at the time the claim is submitted, the insurer may never know it occurred. Consequently, an uninvestigated claim can’t be labeled as fraudulent to investigate.

The SAS Data Governance Framework: A Blueprint for Success

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Aug 28, 2018
Starting data governance initiatives can seem a bit daunting. You’re establishing strategies and policies for data assets. And, you’re committing the organization to treat data as a corporate asset, on par with its buildings, its supply chain, its employees or its intellectual property. However, as Jill Dyché and Evan Levy have noted, data governance is a combination of strategy and execution. It’s an approach that requires one to be both holistic and pragmatic: • Holistic. All aspects of data usage and maintenance are taken into account in establishing the vision. • Pragmatic. Political challenges and cross-departmental struggles are part of the equation. So, the tactical deployment must be delivered in phases to provide quick “wins” and avert organizational fatigue from a larger, more monolithic exercise. To accomplish this, data governance must touch all internal and external IT systems and establish decision-making mechanisms that transcend organizational silos. And, it must provi

Using Analytics With Open Data to Build a Stronger Government

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jun 26, 2019
To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
