This report provides a guide to some of the opportunities that are available for using machine learning in business, and how to overcome some of the key challenges of incorporating machine learning into an analytics strategy. We will discuss the momentum of machine learning in the current analytics landscape, the growing number of modern applications for machine learning, as well as the organizational and technological challenges businesses face when adopting machine learning. We will also look at how two specific organizations are exploiting the opportunities and overcoming the challenges of machine learning as they’ve embarked on their own analytic evolution.
Business intelligence has come a long way ? from assistance with report generation to self-service platforms for discovery and analytical insight. As technological capabilities and business aptitude with information continue to advance, the next generation of BI will be even more capable and valuable to the enterprise. To discuss today’s success factors and tomorrow’s opportunities, IIA spoke with Andy Bitterer, Senior Director of Business Intelligence Product Management at SAS, and Tapan Patel, Principal Product Marketing Manager at SAS.
Analytics is now an expected part of the bottom line. The irony is that as more companies become adept at analytics, it becomes less of a competitive advantage. Enter machine learning. Recent advances have led to increased interest in adopting this technology as part of a larger, more comprehensive analytics strategy. But incorporating modern machine learning techniques into production data infrastructures is not easy.Businesses are now being forced to look deeper into their data to increase efficiency and competitiveness. Read this report to learn more about modern applications for machine learning, including recommendation systems, streaming analytics, deep learning and cognitive computing. And learn from the experiences of two companies that have successfully navigated both organizational and technological challenges to adopt machine learning and embark on their own analytics evolution.
Organizations need to accelerate the pace with which they realize business value from data. The focus is on improving “time to value,” which is the length of time it takes from the beginning of a project to the delivery of anticipated business value.
This TDWI Best Practices Report focuses on realizing value from BI and analytics and how organizations can accelerate the path to higher value. The report looks at multiple factors impacting the ability of organizations to quickly derive greater value from data and analytics, including the organizational issues, practices, and development methods that are often just as important as keeping pace with technological innovation.

Today’s IT organizations face huge challenges such as the ever-increasing number of applications, virtualization, the cloud, and the rising value of information stored in data centers. The combined effect of these factors is placing pressure on IT infrastructures to increase performance and operate more efficiently while reducing costs.
An emerging technology, flash storage technology, is helping business and technology leaders address these issues by making their IT infrastructures more operationally efficient. Learn more in this white paper from Logicalis.
As business purposes have changed over the years, IT approaches and infrastructures have had to change in lock-step to serve them optimally. IT professionals are now combining the best of the centralized approach – via virtualization, federation, and clouds of all sorts – with the best of the decentralized model – via mobile and localized consumption and production. In this paper, Enterprise Strategy Group examines approaches to IT operational challenges and business requirements. Learn how HP Converged Storage’s comprehensive approach represents a logical evolution development in storage, delivering ease, flexibility and cost-efficiency all in one.
With the right execution, an effective B2B lead nurturing program begins as soon as a prospect interacts with your content, and continues until a relationship has been built, the lead is qualified and forwarded to a sales person for follow up - which can take months.
However, nurturing has proven to be extremely worthwhile, as half of all buyers' inquiries eventually result in a purchase.

LifeLink Foundation needed to provide business continuity and DR of critical transplant related information to multiple locations and needed to manage DR planning and implementation in a hurricane zone. Learn how VMware & Dell EqualLogic worked together to implement two remote sites providing consolidated virtual storage, snapshot-based backup and recovery.
Virtualized IT infrastructures can simplify management and facilitate business continuity while helping minimize power consumption and procurement costs. Virtualization also helps organizations automate disaster recovery plans. Dell EqualLogic PS Series arrays and VMware® Site Recovery Manager (SRM) software provide integrated, cost-effective, automated site recovery and testing for enterprise data centers.
VMware virtual machines are hardware-independent so any physical server can serve as a recovery target for any virtual machine. Organizations can significantly reduce the cost of hardware for disaster recovery by repurposing underutilized existing servers for recovery targets and disaster recovery testing. VMware Infrastructure also simplifies and accelerates recovery, helping IT organizations meet their time-to-recovery targets.

Want to appeal to financial executives? Dial up the logic. Financial executives differ from almost every other line of business (LOB) executive when it comes to decision-making, according to a new study conducted by the FORTUNE Knowledge Group in collaboration with gyro. While executives in most other industries are moving toward a more innate approach to decision-making, this group relies primarily on logic to guide their decisions. Understanding the differences between what financial executives look for in partnering with companies and what their peers value is key to developing messaging that appeals to this unique segment.

Digital transformation has changed the face of business across the globe. New digital technologies—
specifically, mobile devices—are opening new avenues for companies to engage their prospects and
manage their operations with greater effectiveness and efficiency.
However, in the healthcare space, the response to these technological innovations has been reserved.
While it’s undeniable that digital transformation could bring great change to the healthcare space just as
it has in other industries, obstacles like regulatory compliance and rigid systems of record discourage the
adoption of new tools and technology.
This has led to frustration from all sides of the healthcare ecosystem. Many people are accustomed to
using intuitive digital applications in their everyday lives, so when healthcare applications deliver archaic
user experiences, everyone is left wanting more. Patients and members want applications that enable
them to manage their health more easily. Providers want to provide new
This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring.
The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take.
In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better
