Companies spend millions of dollars every year on building data warehouses, buying business intelligence (BI) software tools and managing their analytic processes in the hope of gaining consumer insight and winning market share. Yet, many companies fail to realize the full benefits of their technology investments because they are hamstrung by the layers of expertise and the complexity of technology tools needed to integrate various data warehouses and associated tools within their existing analytic environments. Since analysis is only as good as the accessibility, timeliness and accuracy of the information being analyzed, the interoperability of any data warehouse with any analytic environment is essential to achieving insightful, actionable analysis and making better decisions.

Today, organizations are collecting data at every level of their business and in volumes that in the past were unimaginable. Data sets are stored in different database systems or in files with distinctive formats, all reflecting business process, application, program software, or information type dependencies. Adding to this complexity is the distribution of these data sets across the enterprise in silos requiring a varied set of tools and/or specialized business rules for data transformation, classification, matching, and integration. Because of the massive amounts of data stored in a variety of representation formats, decision makers strain to derive insights and create business solutions that adequately span and integrate information from these disparate technology islands.

Customer interactions today span multiple touch-points. As such, businesses are constantly seeking ways to adapt their activities to interact with buyers through the most relevant channels. While this pursuit helps firms better connect with clients, it also means capturing data related to different views / parts of the customer journey.

For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
The restaurant and bar industry is highly competitive, and many owners of these establishments struggle every day just to stay in business. In fact, approximately 40 restaurants and bars go out of business each day in the U.S. According to celebrity chef, restaurateur, and entrepreneur Robert Irvine, “Part of the problem is that they don’t have the systems and processes in place to track the key aspects of their business – not only their costs and their revenue, but what items sell the best (and by how much), what items are most profitable, who are the most productive employees, and so on.”
The use of technology tools and the Internet – driven by a high-speed network connection that supports owners, staff and guests – can be the key to evolving a restaurant or bar from a struggling survivor to a thriving, successful business. Download this white paper to learn more.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,
from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver
their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of
