The discipline of data quality assurance ensures that data is "fit for purpose" in the context of existing business operations, analytics and emerging digital business scenarios. It covers much more than just technology. It includes program management, roles, organizational structures, use cases and processes (such as those for monitoring, reporting and remediating data quality issues). It is also linked to broader initiatives in the field of enterprise information management (EIM), including information governance and master data management (MDM)
Society simply must change the way it serves its most vulnerable members. Service delivery models are outdated and constrained by budgets, organizational structures and legislation. Citizens aren’t getting what they need to become more self-sufficient and recover from hard times or significant events such as disasters. Government isn’t keeping up with the demand generated by the complex times we live in and agencies are stressed to the breaking point by current service expectations. Something different must be done to generate better outcomes. This action requires better engagement between government and citizens which can lead to more self-reliant individuals and lower demands and costs on government. In California, one county is tackling this challenge head on and has found a better way to serve their citizens.
This paper introduces the practice of Model Management, an organizational capability to develop and deliver models that create a competitive advantage.
Today, the best-run companies run their business on models, and those that don’t face existential threat. The paper explains why companies that fail to run on models are falling for the Model Myth—the assumption that models can be managed like software or data. Models are different and need a new organizational capability: Model Management.

The paper is intended for anyone in a data science organization, or anyone who hopes to use data science as a key source of competitive advantage for their business.
Vast resources of data are increasingly available, but the sheer volume can overwhelm human capability. By implementing the cognitive system of IBM Watson Discovery into their infrastructure, businesses can extract deeper and more accurate insights by efficiently identifying, collecting and curating structured and unstructured data.
Watson Discovery, also capable of creating content collections and custom cognitive applications, can transform organizational processes to extend proprietary content and expert knowledge faster and at greater scales.

More data means more opportunities to discover powerful, actionable insights around customers, internal processes, and the broad market. Unfortunately, legacy IT architectures and approaches can block progressive analytics efforts.
That leaves a lot of room for improvement, and the learning and investment curve for starting in analytics can be steep. However, tending to three core steps will prove immensely helpful on this journey:
• Establishing an organizational foundation
• Mapping the data pipeline
• Transitioning analytics proofs of concept into production

SiriusDecisions identifies five planning assumptions that must drive the agenda of sales enablement executives in the year ahead. From onboarding to demand creation to tackling mobile and social media, discover how to build integration between the marketing, sales, training and operations teams with the new sales enablement organizational model.
There are three accepted ways to address team challenges. Identifying a common team goal, developing open communication, and clarifying roles and responsibilities are the most effective ways of addressing work team challenges.
Organizational models today are shifting from hierarchical to flat. Careers are no longer an upward trajectory, but more likely to be a series of experiences, projects and development opportunities. But, a lack of awareness around the new flat organization dynamics is resulting in a perceived lack of opportunities for career movement within companies, and frustration among employees and leaders.
Whether you’re onboarding new customers, cross- or up-selling, getting your supply chain or logistics right, or even collecting unpaid debt, making the best choice of decisions means weighing not just what’s right for your department – but what is best for the business overall. Not to mention what is optimal for your customers and partners.
And let’s face it, even with the availability of business intelligence and other analytic tools, it’s hard to know what constitutes the right actions to take in an era where Big Data consistently throws you curveballs. Prescriptive Analytics can help – but for most organizations, there are more questions and concerns than answers about how to implement it successfully.
Read our white paper on how Prescriptive Analytics can transform your business decisions and actions – leveraging your existing analytics investment and organizational DNA while helping you drive transparency, customer experience, and profits
Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are adopting cloud-based workloads at a significant pace. A 2017 HIMSS study found that 65% of Healthcare organizations were using cloud-based services, and nearly 88% of those organizations were utilizing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, which have become the preferred deployment method for many clinical application vendors.
This eBook highlights advantages of using AWS to create and maintain cloudbased Next-Gen BI Solutions for Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations. This includes use cases from diverse organizations that have utilized AWS and APN Partners to manage and analyze data, and to discover insights otherwise obscured by the sheer volume of available information. Solutions from APN Partners can help your organization take the next step in building robust processes for making data-driven decisions that improve patient care, organizational processes, and innovative product development efforts.

Sodexo’s 2017 Global Workplace Trends Report Offers Thought Leadership from Leading Voices
This whitepaper is a summary of the trends that we explored for this year’s Workplace Trends Report.
Sodexo reviewed 10 workplace trends: organizational and employee agility; collaborative work spaces; the impact of societal issues such as migration and cultural integration; the new generation of robotics; the evolution of learning at work; the overlap of personal and corporate brands; design thinking principles in the workplace; sustainable development goals; the potential of millennial talent; and the workplace as a wellness destination
Over the past seven years, we’ve surveyed more than 30,000 technical professionals around the world to explore the relationships between IT performance, DevOps practices, culture, organizational performance and other elements that affect business outcomes. In the process, we’ve built the deepest and most widely referenced body of DevOps research available.
The 2018 State of DevOps Report breaks new ground in our understanding of the DevOps evolutionary journey. We have identified the five distinct stages of DevOps evolution, and the critical practices at each stage that help you achieve success and progress to the next phase of your journey.
As enterprises work to replicate the development agility of internet companies and innovate in highly competitive markets, application development has grown increasingly complex. The large, monolithic codebases that traditionally power enterprise applications make it difficult to quickly launch new services. Siloed and potentially distributed development and operations teams present organizational alignment problems. On top of this, users are more demanding than ever – enterprises need to scale effectively and monitor deployments to ensure customers are provided with high performance and a consistent experience. Of course, all this needs to be done while providing always-on service availability.
