Put your data in the hands of those who need it most, so they can act quickly to deliver great customer experiences. And a better bottom line.
Data is no longer the domain of a few. Everyone in your organization should be thinking about it. And more importantly, acting upon it. This means taking data insights out of the realm of data scientists and making them a natural part of everyone’s workflow — from the marketing department to the executive team.
To seize and capitalize on the data you already have, it’s important for analysts and marketers to rethink data—shifting from a reporting mindset to an action mindset.
74% of organizations want to be data driven, yet only 29% say they’re good at connecting analytics to action.
In Q4, 2009, ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA) analysts worked with ASG to research how executives in IT and within the lines of business use dashboards to gain holistic insights into IT services as they impact business outcomes.
For years, experienced data warehousing (DW) consultants and analysts have advocated the need for a well thought-out architecture for designing and implementing large-scale DW environments.

This whitepaper explores these new advances and discusses how they have affected the development of DW environments.
Everybody has their favorite apps…but can you name even three mobile websites you like? Probably not – and that’s because retrofitting desktop web designs fails to meet users’ mobile expectations. Yet in spite of that, smartphone traffic is at its highest point ever and will only continue to increase.

Gradient Boosting Machine (GBM) modeling is a powerful machine learning technique for advanced root cause analysis in manufacturing. It will uncover problems that would be missed by regression-based statistical modelling techniques and single tree methods, but can easily be used by analysts with no expertise in statistics and modelling to solve complex problems. It is an excellent choice for advanced equipment commonality analysis and will detect interactions between process factors (for example, machines, recipes, process dates) that are responsible for bad product. It can also be used to identify complex nonlinear relationships and interactions between product quality measurements (for example, yield, defects, field returns) and upstream measurements from the product, process, equipment, component, material, or environment.
If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business
intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help
business analysts and nontechnical users visualize data. It
creates the best possible visual based on the data that is
selected. The visualizations make it easy to see patterns and
trends and identify opportunities for further analysis.
Web Content Management is becoming the focal point for companies who wish to deliver a truly seamless multichannel customer experience. The strategic importance of WCM is increasingly referenced in analysts' reports such as Forrester, which stress the importance for companies to move beyond using a CMS as a means to simply manage content and strategically utilise it to create digital experiences.
With that said, it is concerning that just 38% of this survey's respondents agree that their CMS facilitates a 'brand enhancing digital presence.' Download this report to learn more.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2
Research in the SSL/TLS security market points to a growing need for securing web applications with high assurance certificates issued by a reputable Certification Authority (CA). The integrity of the CA and the extended services offered through a certificate management platform (CtaaS) can produce a truly secure IT environment for website transactions according to industry analysts, Frost & Sullivan, in their in-depth analysis, SSL/TLS Certificates Market, Finding the Business Model in an All Encrypt World. Organizations want to avoid the negative publicity associated with security breaches and customers want to be assured of data protection when making online transactions. In this condensed report, catch the highlights of current industry trends and the ever important need to secure your server with a reputable CA.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.

The implications of AI’s unique approach are profound: AI can learn by example rather than through brute-force programming; can understand human intention and emotions and act accordingly; and can handle extraordinarily complex relationships of data that are beyond the capability of human analysts working alone.
AI can multiply what we currently do and take us to experiences we’ve never had before, at a speed and scale that will change entire industries. In these case studies, we’re pleased to present a range of real-world examples to guide your imagination. Here, you’ll find situations where companies like yours found AI to be part of the solution. These examples show how AI can enhance an existing application, workflow or process and reduce friction.

Its the start of a new year and amidst the countless predictions flooding the internet, one things for certain 2019 is shaping up to be the year of cloud adoption. Analysts are expecting that enterprise adoption of cloud will ramp up significantly, but with this migration and the continued adoption of mobile and IoT technologies, the attack surface is changing dramatically and this has major implications for security.
Fundamentally, security boundaries extend from on premises infrastructure to cloud service provider environments where perimeters no longer exist. Organizations cannot defend themselves with the same strategies and tactics that applied when it did. In this brave new world of cloud, IoT and mobile technology, organizations must be agile and shift, extend, and evolve their perimeter-based defense practices to those that are more robust. Further, a comprehensive defense in depth approach enables defense of high value assets amidst a more unpredictable cyber security landsca
