Today’s business world is evolving at a faster rate than ever before. Customers and partners expect IT organizations to rapidly deliver new products and services while maintaining legacy applications and infrastructures, grappling with vendor lock-in, and operating on constrained budgets. In the face of all these challenges, IT organizations struggle to keep up with the demands of the business. These pressures are forcing strained organizations to review their processes and infrastructure to find new ways to increase their ability to quickly deliver high-quality applications.

Society simply must change the way it serves its most vulnerable members. Service delivery models are outdated and constrained by budgets, organizational structures and legislation. Citizens aren’t getting what they need to become more self-sufficient and recover from hard times or significant events such as disasters. Government isn’t keeping up with the demand generated by the complex times we live in and agencies are stressed to the breaking point by current service expectations. Something different must be done to generate better outcomes. This action requires better engagement between government and citizens which can lead to more self-reliant individuals and lower demands and costs on government. In California, one county is tackling this challenge head on and has found a better way to serve their citizens.
Many organizations and agencies would like to improve their debt collection. They are aware that advanced analytics can help them optimize collections to drive down company debt and collection expenditures. However, they perceive that advanced analytics requires massive infrastructure changes, expensive software licenses, analytics expertise, long lead times and major upfront capital expenses.
“Do more with less” seems to be the dogmatic decree that confronts today’s IT professionals as they struggle to reconcile constrained budgets with apparently limitless growth in unstructured and structured data. With costly primary storage rapidly filling up (and slowing down), the need to migrate less active data onto a more cost-effective storage tier is clear.
