Managing the PC life-cycle environment can be a complicated and expensive process. Enterprises with old and outdated systems require increased support, have higher maintenance costs, and see interrupted workforce productivity. However, consolidating processes and enlisting the help of vendor partners will greatly reduce costs and provide expert-level knowledge for a better PC life-cycle management operation. In April 2016, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study with 230 IT decision-makers with knowledge of desktop infrastructure environments at their organization. All respondents were significantly involved in the decision-making process for PC and device management and had significant expert-level knowledge about the PC life-cycle process.

People control their own consumer journeys. Consumers expect a borderless world in which they roam freely between a brand’s social media channels, email campaigns, blogs and e-commerce site, effortlessly buying things that catch their eye. It’s led to a sporadic, personalized shopping journey that frequently begins on digital touchpoints that weren’t built for commerce. That’s made it increasingly complex for brands hoping to meet customers’ needs and measure the results of their marketing strategies. At the center of this new customer-driven revolution is visual content. Images and videos play starring roles in the decisionmaking process, and provide consumers with a whole new level of inspiration and knowledge. Every picture and video clip is now the entrance to a digital storefront, meaning brands can use them to drive not only engagement but revenue.

"With the introduction of Oracle Database In-Memory and servers with the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors Oracle delivers an architecture where analytics are run on live operational databases and not on data subsets in data warehouses. Decision-making is much faster and more accurate because the data is not a stale subset. And for those moving enterprise applications to the cloud, Real-time analytics of the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors are available both in a private cloud on SPARC servers or in Oracle’s Public cloud in the SPARC cloud compute service. Moving to the Oracle Public Cloud does not compromise the benefits of SPARC solutions. Some examples of utilizing real time data for business decisions include: analysis of supply chain data for order fulfillment and supply optimization, analysis of customer purchase history for real time recommendations to customers using online purchasing systems, etc. "

There are myriad software products, from complete CRM platforms that offer analytics to standalone or add-on software products that focus solely on analytics. There are analytics apps that can be added to your existing CRM platform. Or there’s the option to outsource analytics to a growing number of service providers. “The technologies are changing rapidly. There are a zillion startups offering either new tools or technologies, so it is kind of hard to navigate,”Mike Gualtieri, an analystfor Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., said in a recent webcast on analytics. “There isn’t just one platform that you’re going to need. There’s a whole ecosystem of platforms.” Having the right people on staff who know how to use the technology is equally important, analysts say. Analytics aren’t just for statisticians anymore—they’re used by sales, marketing and customer service teams in daily decision making.

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 today’s highly distributed, multi-platform world, the data needed to solve any particular decision making need is increasingly likely to be found across a wide variety of sources. As a result, traditional manual approaches requiring prior collection, storage and integration of extensive sets of data in the analyst’s preferred exploration environment are becoming less useful.
