As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

This white paper discusses the issues involved in the traditional practice of deploying transactional and analytic applications on separate platforms using separate databases. It analyzes the results from a user survey, conducted on SAP's behalf by IDC, that explores these issues.
The technology market is giving significant attention to Big Data and analytics as a way to provide insight for decision making support; but how far along is the adoption of these technologies across manufacturing organizations? During a February 2013 survey of over 100 manufacturers we examined behaviors of organizations that measure effective decision making as part of their enterprise performance management efforts. This Analyst Insight paper reveals the results of this survey.
This paper explores the results of a survey, fielded in April 2013, of 304 data managers and professionals, conducted by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today Inc. It revealed a range of practical approaches that organizations of all types and sizes are adopting to manage and capitalize on the big data flowing through their enterprises.
In-memory technology—in which entire datasets are pre-loaded into a computer’s random access memory, alleviating the need for shuttling data between memory and disk storage every time a query is initiated—has actually been around for a number of years. However, with the onset of big data, as well as an insatiable thirst for analytics, the industry is taking a second look at this promising approach to speeding up data processing.
Over the course of several months in 2011, IDC conducted a research study to identify the opportunities and challenges to adoption of a new technology that changes the way in which traditional business solutions are implemented and used. The results of the study are presented in this white paper.
Forrester conducted in-depth surveys with 330 global BI decision-makers and found strong correlations between overall company success and adoption of innovative BI, analytics, and big data tools. In this paper, you will learn what separates the leading companies from the rest when it comes to exploiting innovative technologies in BI and analytics, and what steps you can take to either stay a leader or join their ranks.
This white paper, produced in collaboration with SAP, provides insight into executive perception of real-time business operations in North America. It is a companion paper to Real-time Business: Playing to win in the new global marketplace, published in May 2011, and to a series of papers on real-time business in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.

By distilling key themes and lessons learned from peer organizations, Blue Hill Research offers our analysis so that business decision makers can ultimately make informed investment decisions about the future of their IoT analytics projects.
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
