While the EDW plays an all-important role in the effort to leverage big data to drive business value, it is not without its challenges. In particular, the typical EDW is being pushed to its limits by the volume, velocity and variety of data.

Old Dutch Foods, known for its broad selection of snack foods in the midwest United States and Canada, was struggling to get the right products to the right places at the right time. Its data center included outdated physical servers, and batch processing meant that inventory would not be updated until the end of the day as opposed to real time. In addition, recovering from power outages and disk failures could frequently take up to two weeks.
To modernize its data center, Old Dutch Foods invested in EMC Converged Infrastructure. The fast and easy deployment of two VCE VBlock® systems running JD Edwards, MS Exchange, mobile device apps, and operation of a backup site with replicated applications and data.
This enhanced the IT department's responsiveness to the business, allowed them to shift to real-time inventory, and reduced CapEx and OpEx costs. Operations were simplified by reducing person-hours needed for infrastructure maintenance
by 75 percent.

It is critical for media and entertainment companies that they get the most out of the content they’ve invested in. But for many monetization of their assets is being inhibited by slow and expensive tape-based archival solutions (LTO) as well as first generation cloud storage like Amazon. Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, in partnership with Marquis Medway, is bringing media and entertainment companies a transformative new solution. Wasabi’s next generation cloud storage brings companies the speed they need to leverage their content, but costs far less than the traditional cloud storage options. Plus unlike Amazon and others, Wasabi does not charge you to retrieve your content—potentially a huge savings depending on how much you access it. To help you quickly and efficiently get assets from tape to cloud Wasabi has combined with Marquis Medway’s advanced workflow automation platform. To learn more about how this integrated solution can help you rapidly transition away from resource draining LT
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
Download this whitepaper to learn how Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), built on Apache Hadoop, offers the ability to capture all structured and emerging types of data, keep it longer, and apply traditional and new analytic engines to drive business value, all in an economically feasible fashion. In particular, organizations are breathing new life into enterprise data warehouse (EDW)-centric data architectures by integrating HDP to take advantage of its capabilities and economics.

Different finance departments want different financial solutions. Some may simply require financial reporting while, at the other end of the spectrum, some will want a comprehensive performance management solution. This paper compares different approaches to these choices that are available for the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environments. The offerings in this space range from simple reporting tools to complete, integrated solutions. While noting the value that targeted toolsets provide, a survey of the available offerings suggests that most organisations are better served by implementing a holistic, integrated approach rather than a hybrid, multivendor approach.

In the age of Edward Snowden and the NSA, there are increasing concerns about data privacy and especially where best to keep data secure. The prevalence of cloud computing and cloud-based storage and collaboration services is only exacerbating these concerns. Many organizations are confused about regulations that protect data in different countries and jurisdictions, and don’t know what steps to take to ensure their cloud collaboration vendor can provide adequate safeguards.
While pushback and reform efforts are evolving, the reality is that companies must operate within the law. Deciding where to house your data and how to move it is an exercise in understanding the relevant legal regimes and the application of risk analysis in the decision making process. This white paper will examine those elements with regard to cloud-based storage and processing.

In the era of big data, enterprise data warehouse (EDW) technology continues to evolve as vendors focus on innovation and advanced features around in-memory, compression, security, and tighter integration with Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud. Forrester identified the 10 most significant EDW software and services providers — Actian, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Pivotal Software, SAP, Snowflake Computing, and Teradata — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help enterprise architect professionals select the right solution to support their data warehouse platform.
There is growing evidence that more pervasive BI and analytics have a direct impact on competitiveness. Better decision making is more important when resources become restricted during a recession, so BI and analytics projects will still appeal to management. However, justifying large capital outlays for software will be challenging unless short-term benefits can be directly correlated with the investment.
ERP Outsourcing for the Mid-Market discusses the nuances of outsourcing and critical success factors for mid-market companies. Specifically, how companies can effectively select a compatible outsourcing partner who understands both parts of the equation - business and technology - and how to create a governance environment that fosters a successful outsourcing relationship.
