Using enterprise reporting, an organization can progressively address immediate reporting needs, use BI capabilities to acquire greater insight, extend BI to more users and prepare a platform for the future that includes the implementation of performance management.
SAS Institute is gearing up to make a self-service data preparation play with its new Data Loader for Hadoop offering. Designed for profiling, cleansing, transforming and preparing data to load it into the open source data processing framework for analysis, Data Loader for Hadoop is a lynchpin in SAS's data management strategy for 2015.
This strategy centers on three key themes: 'big data' management and governance involving Hadoop, the streamlining of access to information, and the use of its federation and integration offerings to enable the right data to be available, at the right time.
The financial crisis that began in 2007 highlighted the major shortcomings of the regulatory framework around minimum capital requirements and liquidity requirements. In response, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision made substantial revisions to its guidelines - specifically, by including more demanding capital and liquidity requirements now commonly referred to as Basel III framework. National banking authorities around the world are adopting the new Basel III framework as a way to eliminate systemic liquidity risk and promote greater transparency of risk management practices.
Banks have been using credit scoring models for over five decades, so managing the life cycle of models is nothing new. Most have had some kind of process in place to ensure the models they develop are robust, validated and monitored from a performance perspective and that decision makers have confidence in them. In recent times, however - partly in response to the credit crisis in 2008 - the discipline of model risk management (MRM) has become more formalized and rigorous, driving the need for enterprise-level model information management systems. The regulatory scrutiny being applied to them is intensifying and spreading globally, with US and European regulators leading the charge. For example, whereas regulators were previously more interested in the numbers they were provided, now more regulators want to have a core understanding of the models banks used to generate these numbers.
Just as consumers have adopted their own tools and habits to better manage their lives, the technology-driven advances at work will lead to utility and better ways of getting things done. It is a journey more than a destination and one that requires participation and ownership across different levels of your organization. A basic holistic view of data management initiatives and practices will put you on a productive course and help to keep you there.
The health care world is changing. And data has a
role to play in that change.
Traditional health care systems are becoming more
accessible and convenient, while also offering lower
priced options. Proactive care — rather than reactive
— is expected, including a shift from disease
management to disease prevention. Likewise,
a greater emphasis on personalized delivery,
including understanding populations, has led to
increased precision in holistic care management.
Combining conventional data sources with
data from previously untapped data sources —
such as electronic health records, wearables,
social determinants, social media, genetics and
diagnostics — creates new possibilities for
understanding the patterns, relationships, and
predictors of wellness and health.
Keep reading this e-book to discover how health
care leaders are generating new opportunities for
innovation and transforming how care is delivered.
C&C pros will face several challenges when mobilizing enterprise content strategies: addressing fragmented mobile device support, tailoring content delivery to device form factors, and navigating ECM vendor support options. For now, a segmented, use-case-driven approach will be the norm.
Forrester recently surveyed 225 Information and Knowledge Management (I&KM) professionals with Web Content Management (WCM) decision-making or influencer roles about their WCM strategies for the coming year.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) can be a very polarizing topic for IT. Some view it as a solution that can save money, improve end user satisfaction, and enable remote employees. For others, BYOD represents risk of data leakage, loss of control, and signing up to support an endless ecosystem of unknown devices.
No matter what your opinion on BYOD is, the impact on IT policy cannot be overstated. Through 2017, Gartner reports that 90% of organizations will support some aspect of BYOD.
Read this eGuide and learn how you can address several new BYOD challenges facing IT.
