Cloud-based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain a competitive advantage in their industry. However, most organizations will be confronted with the challenging task of reconciling their legacy on-premises data with new, third-party cloud-based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.

Companies rely on an expanding set of applications to compete in today's rapidly evolving business environment: - They rely on a fast-growing array of applications and devices (email, collaboration tools, and smartphones/tablets) to communicate and conduct business with customers and business partners. - They are creating, collecting, and repurposing large, unstructured data sets in life sciences, geophysics, media, and manufacturing. - They are collecting, storing, and analyzing more social and sensor-generated data about environments, products, customers, and transactions. The promise of better and faster data-driven decision making based on all this information is pushing big data and analytics (BDA) technology to the top of executive agendas. To succeed, CIOs must place a laserlike investment focus on datacenter solutions that allow them to deliver scalable, reliable, and flexible infrastructure for fast-growing BDA environments.

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 should take. 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.

In the digital economy, big IT budgets, lots of brick sand mortar and an established market presence are no longer at the foundation of a competitive advantage. What matters now is the agility and speed to ensure that customer centricity is supported as an overriding priority of business operations and decision making. Game-changing ideas are developing and competitive threats are emerging at a rapid and unpredictable pace. The resulting digital disruption is not just occurring at the margins or within isolated pockets of industry and commerce. It’s the new normal and its consequences are far reaching.

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 the vision. • 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

In today’s highly competitive business environment, many organizations are expanding through mergers and acquisitions (M&As). Unfortunately, success comes at a cost. Growth via M&A activity often involves absorbing disparate ERP applications, which, over time, can create significant inefficiencies — particularly in the accounts payable (AP) department. The good news is, AP automation is emerging as an end-to-end solution that forward-thinking organizations can use to eliminate AP-related silos and maximize their market potential. Businesses with a complex ERP environment have several choices when it comes to AP automation solutions. This white paper is intended to assist AP and finance leaders, along with ERP system administrators, in evaluating their options, simplifying the decision-making process, and getting the absolute most out of their AP automation investment.

While more and more enterprises are using analytics to guide their decision-making processes, most midsize businesses continue to rely on old-fashioned decision-making techniques like trial and error. The reason for this is simple: advanced analytics solutions can be very complex and expensive to implement, leading midmarket businesses to assume that the benefits of analytics are beyond their reach. IBM has created a new analytics solution that is designed specifically with the needs of midmarket businesses in mind. The solution, IBM Analytic Answers, gives midmarket businesses the opportunity to take advantage of a sophisticated analytics platform, backed by IBM expertise, while also staying within their budgets.
