Connectivity and Colocation Support Fast Growth—and Peace of Mind

Published By: Spectrum Enterprise     Published Date: Jun 05, 2017
FRONTEO provides end-to-end project management, litigation consulting and eDiscovery solutions for a global base of law firms and corporations. To meet customers’ time-critical information needs, Chief Operating Officer David Wilner, requires connectivity and data center solutions that can handle hundreds of terabytes of data—reliably and at top speeds. That’s why, by 2013, Wilner could no longer tolerate the reliability issues he was having with the company’s previous network provider. In search of a better partner, Wilner’s team chose Spectrum Enterprise. Unlike other providers who, Wilner felt, take little accountability for network reliability, he appreciated that— same as FRONTEO itself—Spectrum Enterprise offered a true end-to-end solution.

A Great Use Of The Cloud

Published By: Teradata     Published Date: May 02, 2017
A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs. This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.

Addressing customer analytics with effective data matching

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jan 27, 2017
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active big data pilots or implementations identified customer-c entric outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data and analytics can also help companies understand how changes to products or services will impact customers, as well as address aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management, and operational optimization.

Big Data, Bad Data, Good Data - The Link Between Information Governance and Big Data Outcomes

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 18, 2016
Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.

Agile Development – Why requirements matter

Published By: IBM     Published Date: May 09, 2016
The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes. So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.

Business Transformation Doesn't Need to be a Long Drawn-Out Process

Published By: K2     Published Date: Jan 07, 2016
When driving any major change within an organization, strategy and execution are intrinsic to a project’s success. Nevertheless, closing the gap between strategy and execution remains a challenge for many organizations, as explored in a recent Process Excellence Network report: “Shift Business Excellence Into High Gear: Drive Strategic Performance Through Process Excellence.” Companies tend to focus more on execution than strategy for quick results, instead of taking the time needed to understand the parts that make up the whole, so the right execution plan can be put in place to deliver the best outcomes. A large part of closing this gap is understanding that business operations don’t fit neatly within the traditional organizational hierarchy. Business processes are often messy, collaborative efforts that span people, departments and systems, making them difficult to manage within a hierarchical structure. Business process management (BPM) helps by redefining an organization accordin
