As cycles accelerate and timelines shorten, projects are being recognized—by necessity— as the delivery arm for strategy. In this environment, anything less than real-time access to real-time project data is too slow, because businesses need to know where they’re heading, not just where they’ve been. CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM 15.3) has added new capabilities to support project, financial and resource management across individual initiatives and entire portfolios. We’ve also built new, embedded BI capabilities that make powerful data and insights more accessible to everyone.

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.

Data and analytics have become an indispensable part of gaining and keeping a competitive edge. But many legacy data warehouses introduce a new challenge for organizations trying to manage large data sets: only a fraction of their data is ever made available for analysis. We call this the “dark data” problem: companies know there is value in the data they collected, but their existing data warehouse is too complex, too slow, and just too expensive to use. A modern data warehouse is designed to support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling organizations to derive deeper business insights.
Key elements of a modern data warehouse:
• Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources
• Federated q

Some companies opt to deploy UC solutions on-premises, but the cloudbased model is gaining popularity. Cloud-based UC solutions are ideal for businesses that have limited IT staff, a distributed workforce and/or a desire for pay-as-you-go flexibility.
By enabling diverse communication media to be carried over a common IP network, UC solutions make it possible to manage a full suite of capabilities from a single point—and use them with common devices.
But what’s the best way to maximize UC capabilities for your specific workplace? Spiceworks surveyed IT decision makers to get their insights on identifying and deploying collaboration and communication solutions across their organizations. This white paper explores the survey results, including key concerns, pain points, and roadmaps around driving UC strategies.
The role of analytics in managing, improving and ultimately transforming supply chains cannot be understated. But what about the analytics themselves? FICO’s Zahir Balaporia and renowned author Tom Davenport use the term “The Analytics Supply Chain” to reflect that the actual analytics themselves parallel supply chains, with inherent challenges and problems if things “get stuck.” Rethinking analytics in these terms can not only improve supply chain performance, but also any other business problems you seek to solve.
This article targets:
· Steps in the analytics supply chain and the vital role of data and analytic models
· How your predictions, recommendations and insights need to rely on similar attributes to finished manufactured products;
· Key questions to ask yourself in determining where you need to fix your analytics supply chain.

As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study.
At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.

Did you know that majority of the respondents in a recent survey identified digital skillset (57%), senior leadership commitment (50%), and change management (42%) areas as the most important success factors for digital transformation?
Infosys commissioned an independent survey of over 1,000 senior management level executives from organizations with annual revenues over US$ 1 billion to understand the impact of digital disruption on their organizations and how they were dealing with it. Three clusters emerged from the survey findings, based on the business objectives behind their digital transformation initiatives- Visionaries, Explorers, and Watchers. The survey provides valuable insights into how organizations can evolve from being watchers and explorers to visionaries.

An effective rolling forecast is important to estimate long term financial plans. Every organization undertakes this process as a finance activity. However, when the forecasted data is examined on its effectiveness for decision making, more often than not the results are disappointing, and the rolling forecast process needs to be redefined.
