Big data is a term that describes high volume, variety and velocity of information that inundates an organization on a regular basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analyzed for insights that lead to better decisions and better services.

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration. In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Decision makers at many organizations question the investments made in IT. This is often because they don’t fully understand the value delivered by IT service management (ITSM) or by compliance with recommended best practices such as those defined by the IT Infrastructure Library or ITIL®.

Learn how creating a great service catalog can help alleviate these pressures and why many consider it to be fundamental to any IT improvement initiative. An effective service catalog enables IT to deliver business services that are more customer and service focused, which results in higher customer satisfaction, provides standardization and consistency and increases IT visibility across the organization.

Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business.
