Meanwhile, those same demanding business leaders lack
appreciation and patience for the complexity of today’s digital
technology environment. While applications and user experiences
are simpler and more intuitive, the backend processing, application
interdependencies, and underlying infrastructure are more complex
than ever, even in light of the benefits of abstraction, virtualization,
and cloud computing (see Figure 1.)
While CIOs have long been expected to improve stability and uptime

U.S. Department of Energy surveys show that minor adjustments in process management can incrementally improve efficiency in commercial and heavy industries. These include pulp & paper, chemical, petroleum refining, mining and food processing where as much as 60% of their total energy consumption goes to the production of steam.
The information-packed Steam Generation & Condensate Recovery Process Optimization kit from Magnetrol explains how effective instrumentation solutions can:
With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

Performance testing and benchmarking of cloud computing platforms is a complex task, compounded by the differences between providers and the use cases of cloud computing users. IaaS services are utilized by a large variety of industries and, performance metrics cannot be understood by simply representing cloud performance with a single value. When selecting a cloud computing provider, IT professionals consider many factors: compatibility, performance, cost, security and more. Performance is a key factor that drives many others including cost. In many cases, 3 primary bottlenecks affect server performance: central processing unit (CPU) performance, disk performance, and internal network performance.

Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making.
Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would
normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources.
This e-book aims to provide you with expert tips on how to
use Amazon Redshift Spectrum to increase performance
and potentially reduce the cost of your queries.

The average organization receives 1,200 invoices every month according to the Institute of Finance & Management. What’s more, between 70 percent and 80 percent of all invoices in the United States are still paper-based. That’s a lot of information to keep track of – and a lot of paper to shuffle around. It’s no surprise, then, that 80 percent of businesses would love to streamline their accounts payable processes. But what stops them from doing so isn’t an overly complex, impossible-to understand process – it’s confusion about the unknown, and fear that automating AP will be time-consuming, difficult, and expensive.
This report was developed to provide you with real, simple steps you can take to digitize and streamline your invoice processing. As you do so you’ll recognize significant benefits, including happier employees and a healthier bottom line.

Big data projects often entail moving data between multiple cloud and legacy on-premise environments. A typical scenario involves moving data from a cloud-based source to a cloud-based normalization application, to an on-premise system for consolidation with other data, and then through various cloud and on-premise applications that analyze the data. Processing and analysis turn the disparate data into business insights delivered though dashboards, reports, and data warehouses - often using cloud-based apps.
The workflows that take data from ingestion to delivery are highly complex and have numerous dependencies along the way. Speed, reliability, and scalability are crucial. So, although data scientists and engineers may do things manually during proof of concept, manual processes don't scale.
