decisions associated with improving the customer’s relationship with
the organization over time.
In this report, Blue Hill explores the key traits associated with
supporting the Connected Customer through the Internet of Things,
and provides guidance on why the Internet of Things will be essential
across the general business landscape.

Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance.
Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and
dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles
just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with
the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered
in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and
faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of
predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics
helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data
visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse
data preparation features for better data access. They support
collaboration, mashups, and storytelling.

information and systems are optimized for peak efficiency and performance.
By making use of data capture and business intelligence to
integrate and apply data across the enterprise, organizations can capitalize
on emerging opportunities and build a competitive advantage.

This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to analyzing and mitigating the risks of migrating to PostgreSQL.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
A key decision criteria for adopting any technology is whether it can support requirements for existing applications while also fitting into longer term strategies and needs.
The first section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of migrating from legacy and commercial solutions to PostgreSQL:
