The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

Previous best practices for cleaning healthcare facilities centered on sanitizing frequently touched objects, such as bed rails or call buttons, because these objects were believed to be major sources of contagion. However, this new study finds that floors are the largest potential source of pathogens after reviewing five participating Cleveland-area hospitals.
Specifically, the following findings are highlighted in the study:
• Patient room floors in five hospitals were found to be contaminated with healthcare-associated pathogens.
• High-touch objects often came to be in direct contact with the floor.
• Touching objects on the floor frequently resulted in transfer of pathogens to hands.
• Floors in hospital rooms are overlooked as a source for pathogen dissemination, with potentially dangerous results.
To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.
Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm
the business managers who must sift through it all to
glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize
profits. Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into
new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship
management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM),
business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data
environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected,
“dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of
disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to
deliver the desired single view of the business.
To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and
stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety,
volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from
an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all
their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as
possible to maximize
