Put your data in the hands of those who need it most, so they can act quickly to deliver great customer experiences. And a better bottom line.
Data is no longer the domain of a few. Everyone in your organization should be thinking about it. And more importantly, acting upon it. This means taking data insights out of the realm of data scientists and making them a natural part of everyone’s workflow — from the marketing department to the executive team.
To seize and capitalize on the data you already have, it’s important for analysts and marketers to rethink data—shifting from a reporting mindset to an action mindset.
74% of organizations want to be data driven, yet only 29% say they’re good at connecting analytics to action.
Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets. But, in today’s complex data environment exists a near paradox between these expectations, that companies will be able to rapidly deliver value using data and analytics--and the complexities of the data landscape, making it more difficult to find, govern, connect to and access the data needed to deliver that value.
Once thing is clear: if management expectation is to be met, simplifying connectivity is a must.In this white paper, veteran analyst Mike Ferguson, Managing Director of Intelligent Business Strategies explores how simplifying data access –connectivity –aligns expectations with data realities thus decreasing time to value.
For years, experienced data warehousing (DW) consultants and analysts have advocated the need for a well thought-out architecture for designing and implementing large-scale DW environments.

If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business
intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help
business analysts and nontechnical users visualize data. It
creates the best possible visual based on the data that is
selected. The visualizations make it easy to see patterns and
trends and identify opportunities for further analysis.
Creating predictive analytics from alternative data has become the current focus of the biggest quant trading firms in the industry
The democratization of financial services data and technology, together with more intense competition, makes the needs of today’s market participants vastly different from those of previous generations. Firms must locate untapped sources of data for both public and non-public companies. This alternative data, such as payment data and other non-public information, from sources beyond the common channels, can be a predictive indicator of market performance; a difference maker in assisting firms as they develop models to evaluate their investments.
By combining our unique data sets with advanced analytics, traders, analysts and managers can seek predictive signals and actionable information utilizing their own models.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine
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,1 less than half of an organisation’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.2

For any sized organization, securing data and networks today is a daunting task. New vulnerabilities are discovered almost daily; new malware strains are developed as soon as a detection script is written for the old ones; and cybercriminals can buy prepackaged exploit kits on the Darknet backed by professional support teams. As a security analyst, you need more than a few point solutions designed to defend the network’s edge. You need visibility, perspective and an innate sense of when things just don’t seem right.

The implications of AI’s unique approach are profound: AI can learn by example rather than through brute-force programming; can understand human intention and emotions and act accordingly; and can handle extraordinarily complex relationships of data that are beyond the capability of human analysts working alone.
AI can multiply what we currently do and take us to experiences we’ve never had before, at a speed and scale that will change entire industries. In these case studies, we’re pleased to present a range of real-world examples to guide your imagination. Here, you’ll find situations where companies like yours found AI to be part of the solution. These examples show how AI can enhance an existing application, workflow or process and reduce friction.

How are organizations balancing self-service analytics and data governance today? What are the trends for tomorrow?
Many organizations are on their way to achieving self-service analytics maturity through the use of intuitive data visualization technologies aimed at non-technical users; as well as various tactics that reduce reliance on IT. But handing the analytics reins entirely to business users can make governance nearly impossible. As a result, organizations are increasing investments in modern analytics platforms that enable a balance between IT governing and curating data, empowering business users to derive insights from data mostly on their own and without delay.

Traditional organizations across the globe are transforming to compete against digital-only players, in restructuring to put the customer first. The world’s buying behavior - and people’s behavior in relation to technology - is quickly changing in connection with online distribution channels, smart devices, and their interplay with offline touchpoints. Siloed business systems and their old reporting lines need to shift, and synchronize - fast.
Whilst businesses of all kinds are utilizing data analytics, many are still only using it to make simple changes that lead to a set of rigid processes. Whereas the more customer-focused organizations are realizing that to deliver exceptional experiences, they need to be able to react to customer data in real-time and predict what might happen next. And that means going beyond simple analytics.
