This whitepaper details how predictive analysis can help your business. Predictive analytics help you make better, faster decisions, giving your organization a significant competitive advantage in the marketing sector.
Decisions, decisions. They can make or break marketing success. Yet as customers and channels grow more complex, so does decision-making. As choices multiply, marketing becomes more challenging than ever.
The days when marketers could rely strictly on good judgment and business acumen are past. Technology for decision and process automation gives marketers a decided edge in making spot-on decisions that match individual customers to the best message, on a scale of millions.
The process of Decide builds on customer data collection and analysis, and positions your organization for profitable engagement with your Generation C connected customers. It plays an essential role in Enterprise Marketing Management (EMM) along with the processes of Collect, Analyze, Deliver and Manage.
Being responsible for one-third of a business’ success already puts HR in a critical role. But it’s not just about finding the best people—it’s about finding the best people, at the lowest cost, with the lowest possible attrition and the best possible performance. And it’s about guiding your executive team to the right decisions using the language they understand best: numbers. Talent management—covering everything from recruiting and compensation to ongoing education and retention—has traditionally been managed in silos, with a series of disparate systems and disconnected processes and reports. In today’s data-driven world, CEOs demand more. This new study conducted by HR.com explores what’s working for organizations today and the biggest gaps to fill.

Your business is complex. Big data promises to manage this complexity to make better decisions. But the technology services that run your business are also complex. Many are too complex to manage easily, fueling more complexity, delays, and downtime. Forrester predicts this will inevitably get worse. To combat this onslaught, you can no longer just accelerate current practices or rely on human intelligence. You need machines to analyze conditions to invoke the appropriate actions. These actions themselves can be automated. To perform adaptive, full-service automation, you need IT analytics, a disruption to your
existing monitoring and management strategy.
This paper is the outcome of a series of in-depth interviews ESG analysts performed with senior IT professionals in various industries.

So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.

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.
