All native and ‘transitioning’ media companies are focusing heavily on content to save existing businesses, or building new business models, or both. Television broadcasters, wary of the growing cord-cutting, are spending large sums on premium content. In 2017, the top four media companies spent more than USD 34 billion on original and acquired non-sports programming. Pure-play OTT providers have, on the other hand, bet big on content to shore up on subscribers. Netflix alone spent more than USD 6 billion on content last year, while spend was USD 7 billion for Amazon and Hulu combined. Transitioning media companies, such as telecom and technology companies that are moving towards being a media company, are also allocating sizable funds for content in their quest to explore supplementary businesses, by boosting customer engagement on their platforms. Apple and Facebook have started creating their own original content, and spend is only going to expand further.

In this book, we are going to look at the key trends driving the modernization of data infrastructure. We’ll see how organizations are adapting and flourishing in a data-driven world. For some time, headlines have been around the internet of things (IoT),
big data and data analytics. While these developments are important, the reality is that you cannot take full advantage of them without modernization. We’re going to look at these trends and priorities in detail, then look at the three key drivers of modernization: governance, mobilization and analytics. We’ll also consider the technologies that make up modern data infrastructure including artificial intelligence (AI), flash storage, converged and hyperconverged platforms and software-defined infrastructures. By making sense of data, we make sense of the world. With more data than ever before, we have the tools to turn all that information into intelligent innovation and change the way the world works.
With big data, you can understand your consumers better than ever before. But for smarter advertising, you need to harness a more complete view of your consumers, both online and offline.
HERE Technologies enables advertisers to make sense of their dynamic user data and build more actionable insights, through audience segmentation, real-time location targeting and attribution.
Advertisers have made great strides in understanding consumers’ digital journeys. But in order to truly map the steps of the consumer – including bridging the journeys between digital and physical worlds – you need advanced location-enabled intelligence. Find out how precise real-world geometry gives you the context you require to create personalized consumer experiences with the HERE and Location-Based Marketing Association (LBMA) white paper.
HERE Technologies gives you the location context you need to make sense of your dynamic user data. Mapping consumer movements to real-world elements such as points of interest, retailers and their building shapes allows you to observe consumer journeys to within meters, and deliver more timely, accurate campaign messages.
A growing urban population is putting increasing pressure on infrastructures – and creating a bigger challenge for governments to meet their safety, road performance and cost saving targets. Modern location mapping platforms are growing in accuracy and capabilities – giving governments a way to provide real-time, personalized and integrated mobility services to citizens.
In Ovum’s Location Platform Index, 2H17, HERE has been ranked a leader based on overall reach and completeness – and the leader for platform completeness. In this report, you can see exactly how we measure up in the market against some of the leading competition.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a continuous interaction among people, processes, data, and things. Sensors, networks, and smart devices are ubiquitous, providing a torrent of streaming data or big data. The Internet of Things (IoT), which is a network of physical objects accessed through the Internet that can sense and communicate, is a component of IoE.
Cisco is helping customers and strategic partners leverage the full potential of IoE to achieve radical results across all sectors and industries. Indeed, IoE is capable of helping public safety and justice agencies increase cost efficiency, improve safety and security, provide better response times, and increase productivity.

Is your data architecture up to the challenge of the big data era? Can it manage workload demands, handle hybrid cloud environments and keep up with performance requirements? Here are six reasons why changing your database can help you take advantage of data and analytics innovations.
Wikibon conducted in-depth interviews with organizations that had achieved Big Data success and high rates of returns. These interviews determined an important generality: that Big Data winners focused on operationalizing and automating their Big Data projects. They used Inline Analytics to drive algorithms that directly connected to and facilitated automatic change in the operational systems-of-record. These algorithms were usually developed and supported by data tables derived using Deep Data Analytics from Big Data Hadoop systems and/or data warehouses. Instead of focusing on enlightening the few with pretty historical graphs, successful players focused on changing the operational systems for everybody and managed the feedback and improvement process from the company as a whole.
This white paper discusses the concept of shared data scale-out clusters, as well as how they deliver continuous availability and why they are important for delivering scalable transaction processing support.
With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are
attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously
out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics
to create competitive advantage within their markets, often
focusing on building a thorough understanding of their
High-priority big data and analytics projects often target
customer-centric outcomes such as improving customer loyalty
or improving up-selling. In fact, an IBM Institute for Business
Value study found that nearly half of all organizations with active
big data pilots or implementations identified customer-centric
outcomes as a top objective (see Figure 1).1 However, big data
and analytics can also help companies understand how changes
to products or services will impact customers, as well as address
aspects of security and intelligence, risk and financial management,
and operational optimization.
Business leaders are eager to harness
the power of big data. However, as the
opportunity increases, ensuring that source
information is trustworthy and protected
becomes exponentially more difficult. If not
addressed directly, end users may lose
confidence in the insights generated from
their data—which can result in a failure to
act on opportunities or against threats.
Information integration and governance
must be implemented within big data
applications, providing appropriate
governance and rapid integration from
the start. By automating information
integration and governance and employing
it at the point of data creation, organizations
can boost confidence in big data.
A solid information integration and
governance program must become a
natural part of big data projects, supporting
automated discovery, profiling and
understanding of diverse data sets to
provide context and enable employees
to make informed decisions. It must be
agile to accommodate a wide variety of

VAT rules can be complex, HMRC – a gauntlet. In this eBook, we demystify some of the facts around
compliance, tax and expense management.
The British economy has gone from boom to bust. The recession followed by a long period of austerity
and caution has altered spending behaviours while the government has increasingly cracked down
on tax evasion and fraud. HMRC has become more focused on assisting businesses of all sizes to
comply with their policies and implement good governance when it comes to finances.
Nevertheless, the reality can sometimes be confusing and the penalties for getting it wrong – severe.
Many businesses outsource their tax management to experts or muddle through, running the risk of
non-compliance. There’s a real need for unambiguous, helpful advice about expenses, VAT and
