Although IDC is expecting worldwide spending on business analytics software to be $33 billion in 2012, technology is only part of the story.
The growing demand for faster response and deeper business insight is forcing companies to adopt a more pervasive approach to business intelligence (BI) that supports evidence-based decision making.
Higher BI and analytics competency and pervasiveness are achieved when organizational culture, business processes, and technologies are designed and implemented with the goal of improving or automating all strategic, operational, and tactical decision making capabilities of all stakeholders.
Access this paper to learn essential best practices for creating a solid BI and analytics strategy.
Cyber threat intelligence is unquestionably a hot buzzword in the security industry these days. It is being used to seek venture capital and fund startups. It is being pitched to the enterprise market by providers and consultants. However, in this paper, we argue that the majority of what is being billed as “threat intelligence” isn’t. It’s data. From lists of bad IPs or application vulnerabilities to malware signatures, social media data or indicators of compromise (“IOCs”), none of these things are “intelligence.” They’re data.
In this white paper, we define the difference between intelligence and data, and then illustrate the theoretical discussion in a concise case study in the tangible terms of a real-world practitioner and an actual event.

Vindicia has witnessed numerous best practices working with innovative digital businesses and noticed that companies that communicate the most effectively tend to follow three key practices consistently. This ebook give you three essential communication practices.
Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture.

In this webinar you will learn how you can modernize your data architecture to help you collect and validate data, act upon it, and transform your organization for the digital age.
One of the biggest challenges to effectively stopping breaches lies in sifting through vast amounts of data to find the proverbial “needle in the haystack” – the subtle clues that indicate an attack is imminent or underway. As modern computer systems generate billions of events daily, the amount of data to analyze can reach petabytes. Compounding the problem, the data is often unstructured, discrete and disconnected. As a result, organizations struggle to determine how individual events may be connected to signal an impending attack.
In this context, detecting attacks is often difficult, and sometimes impossible. This white paper describes how CrowdStrike solved this challenge by building its own graph data model – the CrowdStrike Threat Graph? – to collect and analyze extremely large volumes of security-related data, and ultimately, to stop breaches. This revolutionary approach applies massive graph-based technologies, similar to the ones developed by Facebook and Google, to detect k
Brand marketers invest billions to create an emotional connection between their brand and prospective customers. As media fragments and customers increasingly engage with the brand in ways outside the direct control of the corporate marketer, brand positioning and messaging and the building of emotional connections with consumers becomes more challenging.
The Internet of Things (IoT) – devices and sensors connected to computing systems and networks – has received enormous attention in the last few years. The attention is due, in part, to the proliferation of connected devices, from about a million in the early 1990s to more than five billion today. In addition, the technology for connecting the devices has become more affordable and easier to integrate.
Recent Gartner research indicates that roughly half of U.S. businesses currently have or are considering adopting a recurring revenue model. If you’re reading this paper, then chances are that half includes you. Gartner estimates the revenue opportunity at greater than $300 billion per year and growing. Even a small piece of that pie would look good on your bottom line.
This growing trend toward recurring revenue monetization strategies presents both opportunities and challenges for your company. Opportunities include reaching new customers and markets, and creating reliable and predictable revenue streams.
Today's workforce is mobile - The workforce of today relies of mobility more than any other time in history. Currently there are an estimated 1 billion mobile workers worldwide, or 14% of the world population, according to IDC. By 2015 the mobile worker population will increase to 1.3 billion. Read this white paper to learn how cloud communication is empowering the mobile workforce.
