BIG DATA ANALYTICS

We live in a world of data abundance, but are underwhelmed by paucity of insights. The sheer complexity of storing and indexing large data stores, as well as the information models required to access and make sense of them, is burdensome to all companies, regardless of size and industry. Uncovering new insights from big data – contained in both structured (transactional) data and unstructured/semi-structured (interactional) formats -- requires prioritizing, organizing and validating on the back end and employing front-end analytical tools that are accessible to knowledge workers. It’s bigger than merely changing out technology; it also requires a delicate overhaul of key knowledge processes to ensure that signal is applied and noise is discarded.

ENTERPRISE MOBILITY

Despite their longevity in the consumer space, business decision makers still grapple with a plethora of security, governance and technical issues surrounding enterprise mobility. As these technological challenges recede, everyone from road warriors to roving warehouse managers, to savvy IT veterans are calling for more enterprise mobility both inside and outside the company’s four walls to securely connect employees, customers and partners with legacy applications and native apps optimized for employee owned devices. Meeting the rising demands of the “bring your own device” (BYOD) movement can be daunting, but is doable with a well‑tuned strategy, and in the long run helps organizations unlock employee productivity, build customer loyalty, and generate increased partner collaboration. Regardless of industry, your organization must get ahead of enterprise mobility and BYOD demands to stay relevant.


VIRTUAL DATA CENTERS

A virtual datacenter is a pool of cloud infrastructure resources designed specifically for enterprise business needs. Rather than the traditional approach of “one server per application” which inevitably results in underutilized resources, with a virtual data center approach compute resources are dynamically applied whenever and wherever they exist to more effectively serve a dynamically changing business. When the concept of virtualization is applied to the entire data center, IT can become the enabler to more quickly and cost-efficiently add new and more experimental business capabilities.

As such, virtual data centers can help organizations save money by consolidating work on fewer servers while shifting expenditures to more flexible operating expenditure budgets. Importantly, with inherent fail-back and recovery, virtual data centers offer improved business continuity. To realize these benefits, organizations should carefully choose providers with the business and technical expertise needed to ensure a smooth migration.


MANAGING COMPLIANCE

Compliance can be a strategic asset - or a costly curse. But if properly implemented, compliance reporting and goverment can significantly reduce costs, improve operational efficiency and drive competitive separation.As business needs and regulatory priorities change, compliance becomes not a one-time event, but an ongoing process requiring constant reexamination and reinvention. The upside is that the improved reporting and governance for compliance can also deliver business benefits such as lower costs, faster time to market and improved customer service.
