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.
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

The “consumerization” of healthcare and sweeping policy changes will require that healthcare providers become more competitive or risk being left behind. Gaining the competitive edge means finding scalable efficiencies, leveraging the wealth of available patient data for improved care, and figuring out how to meet (or sometimes treat) patients where they already are—whether that happens to be at work, at the mall, or on the street.
While Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT) technologies promise to create massive efficiencies and a transformed patient experience, traditional wired connectivity solutions are often costly, difficult to deploy, and don’t offer the flexibility required for effective M2M and IoHT deployments.
A few short years after 3G service brought us anytime, anywhere broadband-and before Apple rolled out its 3G iPhone-4G networks began raising the bar in select markets. This latest evolution in wireless networking offers faster wireless data transmission speeds, vastly superior coverage and support for a new generation of mobile applications and services.
According to a recent IOFM study, only 1 in 6 businesses track their metrics using technology like dashboards that display key data. And even if they are, they’re often uncertain that the metrics being tracked are the “right” ones.
