While working to maintain tactical control of the mobile environment, IT managers often find themselves drowning in minutiae. Overwhelmed by the number of moving parts, they’re unable to stay abreast of the latest threats, let alone extract meaning from or make decisions based on the mountains of data now being collected. With limited IT resources dedicated to mobile technology tools that facilitate reactive rather than proactive management—and limited visibility into mobile intelligence across the organization—many managers have had to choose between security and productivity as the focus of their efforts.
Today's Human Resources (HR), talent and learning executives face strategic challenges, organizational challenges, economic challenges, and a plethora of tactical issues each day. Read this whitepaper to learn how to get the right tools to drive decision making.
The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.

Although IDC is expecting worldwide spending on business analytics software to be $33 billion in 2012, technology is only part of the story.
The growing demand for faster response and deeper business insight is forcing companies to adopt a more pervasive approach to business intelligence (BI) that supports evidence-based decision making.
Higher BI and analytics competency and pervasiveness are achieved when organizational culture, business processes, and technologies are designed and implemented with the goal of improving or automating all strategic, operational, and tactical decision making capabilities of all stakeholders.

Businesses today certainly do not suffer from a lack of data.
Every day, they capture and consume massive amounts
of information that they use to make strategic and tactical
decisions. Yet organizations often lack two critical capabilities
when it comes to making the right decisions for the business:
the ability to make accurate predictions about the future,
and to then use those predicted insights in conjunction with
organizational goals to identify the best possible actions they
The combination of predictive analytics and decision
optimization provides organizations with the ability to
turn insight into action. Predictive analytics offers insights
into likely scenarios by analyzing trends, patterns and
relationships in data. Decision optimization prescribes
best-action recommendations given an organization’s
business goals and business dynamics, taking into account
any tradeoffs or consequences associated with those actions.
Starting data governance initiatives can seem a bit daunting. You’re establishing strategies and policies for data assets. And, you’re committing the organization to treat data as a corporate asset, on par with its buildings, its supply chain, its employees or its intellectual property.
However, as Jill Dyché and Evan Levy have noted, data governance is a combination of strategy and execution. It’s an approach that requires one to be both holistic and pragmatic:
• Holistic. All aspects of data usage and maintenance are taken into account in establishing
• Pragmatic. Political challenges and cross-departmental struggles are part of the
equation. So, the tactical deployment must be delivered in phases to provide quick
“wins” and avert organizational fatigue from a larger, more monolithic exercise.
To accomplish this, data governance must touch all internal and external IT systems and establish decision-making mechanisms that transcend organizational silos. And, it must provi
