Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202

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 most companies, the Human Resources department has a long history of guarding sensitive employee data. Rows of beige file cabinets line a back closet where only those with a key and knowledge of the filing system have access to the personal information of countless employees. The greatest risk to this data has always been fire or water damage, but that’s quickly changing with the emergence of online data storage.

Communications service providers (CSPs) have long recognized the potential of data analytics. Yet their early efforts to pull actionable intelligence from the oceans of data they have access to were largely unsuccessful. Many tried a 'big bang' approach to building a central repository without knowing what they wanted to do with the data in it. The arrival of artificial intelligence (AI) – its machine learning subset in particular – has changed their thinking and approach.
For this Quick Insights report, we surveyed 64 professionals from CSPs around the world who are applying, leveraging and/ or planning to deploy advanced analytics in some capacity at various points across the customer lifecycle.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
To improve safety and mobility across its 5,600km road network, the City of Toronto forged a partnered with HERE Technologies for the provision of traffic, incident, and historical traffic data.
Access to this data allows the city authority to see exactly what’s happening on its roads and more easily and affectively run studies on improvement projects.
This case study details how HERE Technologies enabled the City of Toronto’s transportation team to:
Work smarter with comprehensive network coverage and accurate data to aid analysis
Examine the impact of city projects without significant forward planning or expenditure
Ensure travel volume models used to drive decision making are calibrated to represent real-world truths
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
For the typical enterprise, the volume of data that needs to be managed and protected is growing at roughly 40% per year. Add to that the performance requirements of new applications and the demands for instant response time, always-on availability, and anytime-anywhere access. With such demands, data center managers face storage challenges that cannot be addressed using traditional, spinning-disk technology.
In-memory technology—in which entire datasets are pre-loaded into a computer’s random access memory, alleviating the need for shuttling data between memory and disk storage every time a query is initiated—has actually been around for a number of years. However, with the onset of big data, as well as an insatiable thirst for analytics, the industry is taking a second look at this promising approach to speeding up data processing.
If you are trying to process, understand, and benefit from "big data," you need SAP® HANA®.

If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.
Increased access to data and more channels of communication have given citizens renewed civic power. Public-sector agencies must be just as responsive as any other enterprise with which citizens interact. If you’re an optimist, imagining the results of a hyperconnected citizenry is exciting. As long as government is responsive, greater citizen involvement could help reduce problems that plague modern society, including poverty, disenfranchisement and even crime.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
