One of the greatest competitive advantages a small business can offer the customer is its inherent ability to change rapidly. Whether or not the business is able to depend on deployed solutions to scale with evolving needs often defines its ability to compete.
Many distributed offices are eager to simplify a complex, unwieldy mix of heterogeneous IT equipment. The Dell ™P converges servers, storage, networking and management into an office-optimized chassis the size of a tower server.
There are some surprisingly straightforward reasons behind the glitches, delays, and cost-overruns that can bedevil data warehouse initiatives. ...The first is simply confusing expectations with requirements. But four other troublemakers can also lead to big problems for developers, IT departments, and organizations seeking to maximize the business value of information.
When a pharmaceutical company discovered its risks under the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, it turned to Collaborative to comb and consolidate its data. The result: compliance and insight into new business opportunities, too, through a company-wide business data warehouse and enhanced business intelligence.

The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
Die Cloud ist ein Servernetzwerk, das Daten, Software und Services umfasst. Auf Clouddienste wird für gewöhnlich über das Internet, und nicht lokal in einem Rechenzentrum, zugegriffen. Wenn es um Cybersicherheit geht, verlassen sich immer mehr Unternehmen auf die Cloud. Die zwei Hauptgründe: 1. Aufgrund der sich ständig ändernden Bedrohungslandschaft wird immer mehr Umfang, Genauigkeit, Erfahrung und kollektive Intelligenz benötigt. Diese Anforderungen können die meisten Unternehmen intern nicht erfüllen. 2. Lokale Appliances und Unternehmensrechenzentren haben prinzipiell ihre Grenzen, wenn es um Abwehrmechanismen gegen DDoS- (Distributed Denial of Service) und Webangriffe geht.
Customers have caught on that support interactions are getting better. When they reach out, they’ve come to expect an instant response that says “we’re here for you”. When they want information, it’s expected to be accurate, up-to-date, and easily accessible. Essentially, they come to expect efficiency during support interactions.
As a result, businesses are becoming more cognizant of their self- service offerings. Customers want to be left feeling empowered; it’s even better when they can do so on their own. Self-service saves time for agents, cuts down on organizational costs, and leaves the customer with a positive outlook of a brand.
This eBook delves into how AI can enhance your customer self-service offerings with automatically-generated knowledge bases, content cues for your service agents, and chatbots.
There are obviously a variety of choices open to you: a spreadsheet plug-in may be appropriate if you are only focused on general ledger reporting and do not have concerns over security or compliance. You might also suppose that this is a low-cost option, though we would argue that the remediation required, the additional audit fees and the lack of repeatability means that this is a false economy and that this approach will end up costing you more in the long term. A second use case would be where you already have a financial reporting solution installed, when the add-on facilities for purposes such as business intelligence are likely to be your major focus. In this case an Oracle based solution is likely to be as good as anything else.
Security breaches are expensive, costing U.S. businesses an average of $3.5 million per incident, which doesn’t include brand damage or other intangibles. Unfortunately, breaches are highly likely to happen, with 87% of organizations experiencing a breach in the past 12 months.
Data, whether it’s intellectual property or personal data, needs to be protected. Dell Data Protection solutions provide encryption, malware protection, and authentication for Dell and non-Dell products, to equip businesses with a complete, easy-to-manage, end-user security solution.
Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later.
Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.
If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business
intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help
business analysts and nontechnical users visualize data. It
creates the best possible visual based on the data that is
selected. The visualizations make it easy to see patterns and
trends and identify opportunities for further analysis.
Big data evolution: forging new corporate capabilities for the long term is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by SAS. It explores how far along companies are on their data journey and how they can best exploit the massive amounts of data they are collecting.
Adversaries and defenders are both developing technologies
and tactics that are growing in sophistication. For their part,
bad actors are building strong back-end infrastructures
with which to launch and support their campaigns. Online
criminals are refining their techniques for extracting money
from victims and for evading detection even as they continue
to steal data and intellectual property.
The HP Flex-Bundles for SMB with SQL Server 2014 were created to include everything that a business needs to easily build a new environment or upgrade an existing one. The following sections cover the server, storage, networking and services building blocks that make up these pre-defined configurations.
HP Flex-Bundles are built on the HP ProLiant servers that include some of the latest and most powerful Intel processors. In designing the latest generation of the HP ProLiant server families, HP wanted to not only draw on 24 years of server experience, but also gain from the depth of knowledge and insight from customers.
An IDG Connect survey of 300 enterprise organization decision makers involved in hardware investment decisions reveals the challenges and opportunities that lay between the old style of IT characterized by cost-cutting and infrastructure silos, with the new style of IT driven by the technology trends of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data. These trends have created a significant increase in business expectations that will press IT organizations to rethink their economics, service delivery and business performance. This paper highlights voice-of-the-IT-buyer research results for insight on the challenges and opportunities for IT organizations to drive innovation, transformation and improved delivery against business expectations.
