The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

Practical perspectives on leveraging data to grow sales, cut costs, up-sell more effectively and make better decisions. Marketers overwhelmingly agree they have access to more than enough data. The problem is finding actionable ways to utilize data that is collected across all customer interaction points to better engage with customer and increase lifetime customer value.
