If you specialize in relational database management technology, you’ve probably heard a lot about “big data” and the open source Apache Hadoop project. Perhaps you’ve also heard about IBM’s new Big SQL technology, which enables IBM® InfoSphere® BigInsights™ users to query Hadoop data using industry-standard SQL. Curious? This paper introduces you to Big SQL, answering many of the common questions that relational database management system (DBMS) users have about this IBM technology.
Artificial intelligence (AI) leads the charge in the current
wave of digital transformation underway at many global
companies. Organizations large and small are actively
expanding their AI footprints as executives try to comprehend
more fully what AI is and how they can use it to capitalize
on business opportunities by gaining insight to the data

humans is still many years from becoming mainstream. T

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.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming an essential business and research tool, providing valuable new insights into corporate data and delivering those insights with high velocity and accuracy. Enterprises, universities, and government organizations are investing tremendous resources to develop a wide array of future-focused Deep Learning (DL) and Machine Learning (ML) solutions such as:
• Autonomous vehicles that circulate unassisted in our cities
• Real-time fraud detection that protects shopping and internet transactions
• Natural language translators that remove language barriers
• Augmented reality that delivers a far richer entertainment experience
• Accelerated drug discovery
• Fully enabled personalized medicine and remote health diagnostics
How often does your sales team complain about the leads? Many times the lead is not the problem, rather, it's the story sales is telling, that limits sales growth. Are you speaking your customers' language?
No Deals to 10 Deals a week: By speaking the customer's language, your sales team talks to more people and wins more business.
One of the great myths in marketing & sales is that generating lots of 'leads' or 'awareness' for a product automatically translates into lots of new business. But quantity does not equal quality.
The truth is this: if you don't have a clear denition of who your ideal customer is, why they buy, the language and stories that are meaningful to them, and where they live, you won't find them.
