For data scientists and business analysts who prepare data for analytics, data management technology from SAS acts like a data filter – providing a single platform that lets them access, cleanse, transform and structure data for any analytical purpose. As it
removes the drudgery of routine data preparation, it reveals sparkling clean data and adds value along the way. And that can lead to higher productivity, better decisions and greater agility.
SAS adheres to five data management best practices that support advanced analytics
and deeper insights:
• Simplify access to traditional and emerging data.
• Strengthen the data scientist’s arsenal with advanced analytics techniques.
• Scrub data to build quality into existing processes.
• Shape data using flexible manipulation techniques.
• Share metadata across data management and analytics domains.

To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.
Everybody has their favorite apps…but can you name even three mobile websites you like? Probably not – and that’s because retrofitting desktop web designs fails to meet users’ mobile expectations. Yet in spite of that, smartphone traffic is at its highest point ever and will only continue to increase. This report, written by Forrester analysts, outlines why it’s time for a radical web reset and how you can make your mobile website a “first-class citizen.”

With today’s stratified business communications, small to midsize companies face challenges as they try to modernize their online collaboration workflows. They’re frequently stitching together discrete, ad hoc communications tools to perform a variety of team-based tasks, but the limitations of this approach quickly become apparent as projects grow more complex.
Emerging trends and disruptions that will impact the way businesses communicate and work in the future. The goal, in essence, is to reaffirm the need to invest in a comprehensive suite that is secure, adaptable and easy-to-use for everyone.
A comprehensive guide to workforce trends, as well as tips and best practices for keeping employees engaged with the brand (and with each other) and ensuring they stay productive on a day-to-day basis.
Watch this live demo of the new Cisco Spark
We’d like to share with you the video of a really fun demo we made recently of new Cisco Spark.
It’s Cisco’s cool new product that rolls meetings, messaging, and calls into one service. All of this happens in digital workspaces in the Cisco cloud.
You can share files with your team there, screen share, and draw. Everything’s saved in this space.
When your business is ready, you can add Cisco video conferencing room systems, or desktop video phones. It all works together with your service.
There have never been more ways to connect to your team online. Yet, even as an explosion of communication and collaboration tools invites businesses to bridge distance, time zones, and other workplace challenges, workers often find themselves increasingly disconnected.
The most successful businesses are greater than the sum of their parts. When individuals work together well, they fill in each other's blind spots and build on each other's great ideas. These conversations ultimately help teams be more productive, reduce time-to-market and come up with more innovative ideas. But if your teams are spread across different offices, or working from home, can you create the same collaborative magic?
Web-based collaboration tools claim to break down the collaboration barriers that distance can build. Everyone agrees they can reduce the time and cost of travel. And yes, these tools can stream your colleagues' voices, facial expressions, and slide decks into your meeting room, so you can get a clearer picture of verbal and behavioral signals. But if you're researching collaboration platforms, you'll hear skepticism, too. Naysayers declare that:
People won’t participate because they’re afraid of digital change.
You just can’t trust the security of collaborati

Everybody has their favorite apps. But can you name even three mobile websites you like? We can’t. it’s because responsive retrofits to 20-year-old desktop web designs fail to serve us in our mobile moments of need. That’s a shame because even with lousy sites, web traffic around the world will be majority-mobile by 2019. eBusiness pros have a choice: hand your mobile moments over to a bunch of apps you don’t own, or do a radical reset of your mobile web strategy. This report carries the evidence to convince your company to make your mobile website a firstclass citizen.
Effective metrics and measurements are critical to running a high performance business. Properly applied, they lead you to better insights, better decisions and better business outcomes.
