For many years, companies have been building data warehouses to analyze business activity and produce insights for decision makers to act on to improve business performance. These traditional analytical systems are often based on a classic pattern where data from multiple operational systems is captured, cleaned, transformed and integrated before loading it into a data warehouse. Typically, a history of business activity is built up over a number of years allowing organizations to use business intelligence (BI) tools to analyze, compare and report on business performance over time. In addition, subsets of this data are often extracted from data warehouses into data marts that have been optimized for more detailed multi-dimensional analysis.

The data center has gone through many major evolutionary changes over the past several decades, and each change has been defined by major shifts in architectures. The industry moved from the mainframe era to client/server computing and then to Internet computing. In 2011, another major shift began: the shift to a virtual data center. This has been the primary driver in enabling customers to transition to the cloud and ultimately IT as a service. The shift to a virtual data center will be the single biggest transition in the history of computing. It will reshape all the major data center tiers: applications, storage, servers and the network.

Self-service analytics implies that users design and develop their own reports and do their own data  analysis with minimal support by IT. Most recently, due to the availability of tools, such as those from Qlik,  Spotfire, and Tableau, self-service analytics has become immensely popular. Besides powerful analytical  and visualization capabilities, they all support functionality for accessing and integrating data sources.  With respect to this aspect of data integration four phases can be identified in the relatively short history  of self-service analytics. This whitepaper describes these four phases in detail and shows how the tools  Cisco Data Preparation (CDP) and Cisco Information Server (CIS) for data virtualization can strengthen and  enrich the self-service data integration capabilities of tools for reporting and analytics.

84% of customers said they would no longer buy from a business that didn't take into account their preferences and purchase history. Therefore crowd recommendations and ‘best sellers’ just don’t cut it anymore. Looking at the behavior of all customers to discover popular and trending products is not enough. You need to provide a unique storefront for every customer. That’s why getting personalization right, is key to ensuring your customer has a seamless experience, increases purchase opportunities and ultimately ensures your business stands out from the crowd.

Historically, the speed of a wired connection at the access edge has always been faster than that of a wireless connection. This means workers had to choose between the performance of wired connectivity and the convenience of a wireless connection. Consequently, workers often had to modify the way they worked— first, finding a wired port to use for high-bandwidth applications, such as video or streaming media, and then shifting to wireless connections when the need to be mobile was more important than having the performance of wired. Today, though, the industry sits on the precipice of the biggest innovation in the history of wireless LAN: the release of 802.11ac Wave 2. Wave 1 of 802.11ac brought network speeds that were 1.3 Gbps (Gigabits per second), which is on par with wired networking speeds. However, 802.11ac Wave 2 shatters the gigabit barrier with speeds of up to 6.8 Gbps.

In many enterprises, marketing is a multichannel effort that includes a wide range of touch points. The touch points range from websites and email promotions to traditional print advertising, postal mail, and broadcast, and direct sales by phone and in-person sales teams. But too often, each channel works independently, accountable to its own objectives, unaware of the efforts and results made within other marketing channels. As a result, call centers speak to customers without knowing the offers the customers previously accepted or rejected. In addition, emails launch without reference to online promotions and websites present messages that disregard their visitors’ previous contact history.

Some people believe high performance teams come together and innovate due to luck—the right people happen to be together in a room at the right time. By reviewing moments in history that resulted in some of our biggest innovations— from the light bulb to the airplane—you will see that luck has very little to do with it. Working to create an innovative environment with high performers is possible in any environment if the proper measures are taken to make it work.

The data that resides within Salesforce.com is arguably some of an organization’s most valuable data for all current and future revenue – including contacts, purchase history, lead information, reports on prospects, sales quotes, signed contracts, and customer invoices. Salesforce has a robust data center and the infrastructure to protect your data from hardware failure, even on a catastrophic scale. However, it does not protect you from user error or data being overwritten.

Nothing is more top of mind for marketers than attribution. It’s a complex topic, and there are lots of questions. Should you measure only the first click, or the last click? Should you also measure views? Should you combine view measurement with click measurement? How long should you wait to give credit to user activity? In this whitepaper, we examine the history of attribution models and dive deep into AdRoll platform data, third-party research, and advertiser survey data to make the case for marketers to adopt a blended attribution model, one that combines both ad views and clicks. Attribution is critical to marketing success because nothing has a bigger influence on evaluating results than how you measure the impact of your advertising. And in the digital paradigm, almost everything is measurable. When we surveyed our customers, we heard this point loud and clear. Of the 1,050 marketers we spoke to in our 2016 State of the Industry Report, 84% believe attribution is critical or ver

Looking at IT security history, the bad guys were always far more sophisticated than the people who tried to stop them. Even if companies or the government could conceive of IT security it was almost impossible to achieve it because of the lack of knowledgeable security professionals out there and the lack of security protection tools in the marketplace.
