This paper explores the results of a survey, fielded in April 2013, of 304 data managers and professionals, conducted by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today Inc. It revealed a range of practical approaches that organizations of all types and sizes are adopting to manage and capitalize on the big data flowing through their enterprises.
This white paper, sponsored by SAS, examines the interplay between the
challenges and opportunities afforded by the growing breadth of digital channels
offered by financial institutions. Mobile wallets, real-time peer-to-peer (P2P), and
digital account opening all require the right mix of security solutions, background
analytics, and personnel to balance positive customer experience with robust
fraud protection. JAVELIN independently produced this whitepaper and maintains
complete independence in its data collection, findings, and analysis.
From its conception, this special edition has had a simple goal: to help SAP customers better understand SAP HANA and determine how they can best leverage this transformative technology in their organization. Accordingly, we reached out to a variety of experts and authorities across the SAP ecosystem to provide a true 360-degree perspective on SAP HANA.
In many ways, today’s web marketers are like blindfolded shopkeepers. They might have a general understanding of their customers’ needs, based on site analytics and other data sources, but they do not see what their actual customers are doing across channels. Hence, they miss numerous sales and marketing opportunities—online and off.
Whether your shop is real, virtual, or a combination of the two,
the more complete your customer vision, the greater the value
you can provide to them and the greater value they will deliver
to your bottom line.

Always-on Connections for Store Networks and Powering Intelligent Systems
In the fast-paced world of retail, network reliability is everything—but so are security, agility, and cost-effectiveness. Retailers want it all, and they depend on their IT administrators to balance these needs. Whether it’s ensuring an always-on connection for store networks, powering intelligent systems aimed at swaying buyer behavior, or transmitting real-time analytics to inform marketing and inventory decisions, the bedrock of successful retailing is a network that can support the growing list of mission-critical applications dependent on secure Internet connectivity.
In the past, finding a solution to balance these demands has been difficult at best. Less expensive wired options like DSL mean hours of downtime each month. Alternatives like T1 connections deliver more uptime but carry a price tag that usually puts large-scale distributed deployments out of reach.
In this book we describe best practices honed through 13 years of experience and partnership with some of the leading technology companies in the world.
These best practices will give you insight into three key areas:
• Data management & renewal opportunity generation
• Sales strategy & execution
• Continuing the renewal cycle
We hope you enjoy this book!

"Maximizing Operational Efficiency and Application Performance in VMware-Based Data Center
Some of the most common challenges in VMware-based virtual data center environments include:
- Lack of visibility into applications and end-user experience
- Complex and error-prone operations
- High capital and operational costs
Review our solution brief to learn how the Avi Controller, the industry’s first solution that integrates application delivery with real-time analytics, is able to solve these challenges."
This paper describes five business analytics styles used today and the building blocks required in implementing these styles. It is important to consider which of these styles is valid for your organization now and into the future.
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. Since the creation of these DW architectures, there have been many technological advances making implementation faster, more scalable and better performing. This whitepaper explores these new advances and discusses how they have affected the development of DW environments.
Avi Vantage is the only solution that delivers built-in application analytics in addition to enterprise-grade load balancing and application security. With millions of data points collected in real time, the platform delivers network-DVR like capabilities with the
ability to record and display application analytics over specific time intervals (last 15 minutes, hour, day, week etc.) or for individual
transactions. These application insights including total round trip time for each transaction, application health scores, errors, end user
statistics, and security insights (DDoS attacks, SSL vulnerabilities, ciphers etc.) simplify troubleshooting of applications.
In today's big data digital world, your organization produces large volumes of data with great velocity. Generating value from this data and guiding decision making require quick capture, analysis and action. Without strategies to turn data into insights, the data loses its value and insights become irrelevant. Real-time data inegration and analytics tools play a crucial role in harnessing your data so you can enable business and IT stakeholders to make evidence-based decisions
