IBM believes the Data Warehouse market continues to expand and adapt to address new requirements for user self-service, increased agility, requirements for new data types, lower cost solutions, adoption of open source, driving better business insight, and faster time to value.
Cloud adoption is growing, but relatively few organizations have advanced cloud strategies.
Achieving greater levels of cloud adoption allows organizations to materially improve strategic allocation of IT budgets, lower IT costs, reduce time to provision IT services, increase revenue, and improve ability to meet SLAs.
Private cloud adoption is greater than public cloud. Additionally,
private cloud/OpenStack adopters are more likely to expect better business outcomes.

The impact of healthcare legislation in the United States (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 [ARRA] and the HITECHAct) will accelerate spending on healthcare IT and increase adoption.
of clinical applications
This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services,
they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators
(KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision,
and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their
orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity:
ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while
there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue
and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in
additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.

As organizations aim to increase business agility and streamline
costs, demand for public cloud services continues to grow exponentially, with Gartner predicting it will become the majority
of new IT spending by 2016.
This evolving application ecosystem with its intensive performance
demands is placing new pressures on traditional public
cloud services. Amid this shift, Internap surveyed nearly 250 Internet infrastructure decision makers to gain insight into cloud
adoption, requirements and challenges – including the differences in feedback between the cloud-wise, those using cloud services, and the cloud-wary, those with no near-term plans to use cloud services. The details of these findings are reflected in this Cloud Landscape Report.

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offers organizations the means to centrally manage and deliver desktops as a service to reduce costs, increase data security, and streamline desktop management while enabling anytime, anywhere access across a wide variety of devices. IT consumerization trends such as BYOD (bring your own device) and device diversity are accelerating VDI adoption, which is expected to double over the next year.
Blade server computing is growing in popularity, largely driven by virtualization within the data center, which requires simplified management and increased flexibility in order to deliver operating efficiency and productivity. Adoption is also driven by a need for better performance and scalability, according to a recent survey by IDG Research Services.

The financial collapse of 2008 had the greatest impact on the financial services industry since World War II, resulting in consolidation and extensive regulation. The crisis coincided with increased competition from emerging economic powers, nonbanks and fintech organizations. Consumer behavior, from the adoption of mobile banking to P2P payments, forced banks to retool and respond with innovative products and investments in new delivery channels. Technology changed rapidly as well. In the capital markets, trading became fully automated, with pricing, risk decisions and settlement across exchanges made in milliseconds
With more data in the hands of more people – and easier access to easy-to-use analytics – conversations about data and results from data analysis are happening more often. And becoming more important. And expected. So it’s not surprising that improved collaboration is one of the most common organizational goals.
Let’s take a look at how you can use results produced by SAS Visual Analytics with Microsoft Office applications. You’ll see how easy it is to combine sophisticated analytic visualizations and reports with Microsoft’s widely used productivity tools – to share insights, improve collaboration and drive increased adoption of analytics and BI across your organization.

We live in a mobile, digital era where health information is at our fingertips. With the touch of a button, patients can see test results, track prescriptions, and sign up for clinical research. And yet it still takes over a decade to bring breakthrough treatments to market. Scientific productivity must improve: clinical trials are costly and time-consuming, and regulations mandate increased scrutiny and compliance.
The patients who rely on your scientific leadership are expecting more. How are you meeting their needs? While intensive research and study are still a prerequisite for success, there is a better way to develop new products and therapies.

Many internal control programs are still undergoing major modifications due to increased PCAOB requirements, adoption of the 2013 COSO Framework, and board focus on risk and compliance processes. Organizations are using several technology approaches to manage the process—some with more success than others.
Read this white paper to learn why organizations need to utilize the tools that optimize collaboration and focus on productivity, the pros and cons of desktop-based spreadsheets and GRC platforms, and the merits of taking a fresh approach to technology to manage internal control processes.
With increased adoption, cloud footprints are getting larger and more unwieldy to manage. Organizations know they must analyze and consolidate their cloud bills to stop cloud waste eating into OpEx budgets.
