Business users want the power of analytics—but analytics can only be as good as the data. To perform data discovery and exploration, use analytics to define desired business outcomes, and derive insights to help attain those outcomes, users need good, relevant data. Executives, managers, and other professionals are reaching for self-service technologies so they can be less reliant on IT and move into advanced analytics formerly limited to data scientists and statisticians. However, the biggest challenge nontechnical users are encountering is the same one that has been a steep challenge for data scientists: slow, difficult, and tedious data preparation.

In this whitepaper, we argue that traditional models for estimating HCIT costs are inadequate and overlook several business-critical variables. Our intention is not to provide a comprehensive TCO model, but to expose and examine the operational considerations that most TCO models fail to recognize or account for, and to equip executives to ask the right questions about the cost of delivering clinical and financial results stemming from technology procurement

Business executives and managers at business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care about time, money, competitive advantage, customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much attention to the vital IT infrastructure that supports transactions and collaboration with trading partners—though that B2B backbone directly affects performance and profitability. In fact, just 26 percent of business managers view B2B integration as a competitive differentiator, according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne, a research consultancy. As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on complex, brittle and antiquated systems to exchange critical data impacts time to market, cost-efficiency and satisfaction across suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of B2B integration in recent years has moved forward in fits and starts, often undermined by competing priorities and misalignment between business and IT managers.

Restaurants are complex businesses with a simple aim: great guest experiences that keep customers coming back for more. In order to achieve this goal, stores must deliver on the promise of a great product and exceptional service. There are a lot of ways to make the equation work and each brand has its own unique mix of ingredients that bring the whole operation together to create a recipe for profitability. There are also elements of a successful restaurant that are consistent across any operation. Restaurant executives have long been on the hunt for this elusive lever (or combination of levers) that systematically drive performance regardless of conditions.

Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.

Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review, less than half of an organization’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.

Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications service providers (CSPs).

Replacing that notion is the reality of a wide variety of data types coming from multiple sources, internal and external, to an organization. All of it is in service of providing everyone from IT, to line-of-business (LOB) employees, to C-level executives with insights that can have an immediate and transformative impact.
