Virtually every organization understands that its successful operation depends on the continuous
availability of its applications. Most companies rely on internal applications-ranging from enterprise resource planning to payroll systems-to keep the wheels of their enterprise turning. They also depend on external-facing applications for everything from selling products to their customers to automating the supply chain with suppliers and partners. The failure of any of
these mission-critical applications could be catastrophic to a business.

Self-service analytics implies that users design and develop their own reports and do their own data analysis with minimal support by IT. Most recently, due to the availability of tools, such as those from Qlik, Spotfire, and Tableau, self-service analytics has become immensely popular. Besides powerful analytical and visualization capabilities, they all support functionality for accessing and integrating data sources. With respect to this aspect of data integration four phases can be identified in the relatively short history of self-service analytics. This whitepaper describes these four phases in detail and shows how the tools Cisco Data Preparation (CDP) and Cisco Information Server (CIS) for data virtualization can strengthen and enrich the self-service data integration capabilities of tools for reporting and analytics.
As demands on the data center increase, IT and facilities departments need to be able to increase and sustain high availability, maximize efficiency and minimize costs.

This whitepaper looks at why companies choose Riak
over a relational database. We focus specifically on
availability, scalability, and the key/value data model. Then
we analyze the decision points that should be considered
when choosing a non-relational solution and review data
modeling, querying, and consistency guarantees. Finally, we
end with simple patterns for building common applications
in Riak using its key/value design, dealing with data conflicts
that emerge in an eventually consistent system, and discuss
Today’s consumers expect instant access to communications services whether they’re in the office, at home, or on the road. With data speeds increasing and international roaming costs decreasing, data usage is rapidly growing. Telecommunications Service Providers (TSPs) are under pressure to deliver more services to more people and approach 100% uptime all while lowering prices to consumers.
Traditional relational databases can’t meet the requirements for massive scalability, availability, and fault tolerance that the rapid growth in data usage and rise of big data demands. Read this solution brief to learn how Riak excels at these. Riak is a distributed NoSQL database optimized for big data. Riak meets many of the challenges you may be facing with your own service operations systems.
