The corporate end-user community provides vital cogs in the wheel of a healthy organization. Users include the call centers, the retail assistants, the service desks, the sales offices and the people who deal with order processing. Yet many of these users are often faced with outdated user interfaces (UIs), and struggle to cope with the levels of efficiency and throughput needed. Worse still, these old systems typically only run on a connected terminal - or ‘green screen’ - but more and more these days, users need web and mobile access.
Micro Focus Rumba+ dramatically improves business efficiency by providing a better user experience. It can also now be accessed from a variety of devices. Let’s take a look at five top reasons to move to Rumba+.
The core principles of retailing may remain the same but the methods by which retailers must reach out to customers are constantly evolving. As the need for real-time analytics and customer information grows more important, retailers need robust systems to manage the ever-expanding volumes of data.

This SAS and Intel collaborated piece demonstrates the value of modernizing your analytics infrastructure using SAS® software on Intel processing.
Readers will learn:
• Benefits of applying a consistent analytic vision across all functions within the organization to make more insight-driven decisions.
• How IT plays a pivotal role in modernizing analytics infrastructures.
• Competitive advantages of modern analytics.
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too.
Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data.
To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f
How can you open your analytics program to all
types of programming languages and all levels of
users? And how can you ensure consistency across
your models and your resulting actions no matter
where they initiate in the company?
With today’s analytics technologies, the conversation
about open analytics and commerical analytics is no
longer an either/or discussion. You can now combine
the benefits of SAS and open source analytics
technology systems within your organization.
As we think about the entire analytics life cycle, it’s
important to consider data preparation, deployment,
performance, scalability and governance, in addition
to algorithms. Within that cycle, there’s a role for
open source and commercial analytics.
For example, machine learning algorithms can
be developed in SAS or Python, then deployed in
real-time data streams within SAS Event Stream
Processing, while also integrating with open systems
through Java and C APIs, RESTful web services,
Apache Kafka, HDFS and more.
