As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions.
In October 2013, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to dive deeper into the current usage trends and perceptions of unified communications among midsize organizations (100 to 999 employees) across North America, Asia, and Europe.
This piece explores some of the social, technological, data, and business trends driving the visual organization. We will see that employees and organizations are willingly representing—or, in some cases, being forced to represent—their data in more visual ways.

If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help business analysts and nontechnical users visualize data. It creates the best possible visual based on the data that is selected. The visualizations make it easy to see patterns and trends and identify opportunities for further analysis.
The heart and soul of SAS Visual Analytics is the SAS® LASR™ Analytic Server, which ca
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too.
Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data.
To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f

Business telephony is changing more rapidly than ever before. Several developments are driving this accelerating change. They range from targeted technical initiatives to broad communication technology trends. If keeping your business communication strategy up to date seems difficult now, it will become much more so in the future. It is also important to stay abreast of – or ahead of – the latest developments; if you don’t, you’ll find yourself with a seriously outdated communication system. And that could put you at a competitive disadvantage.
More than ever, the data center is a gateway to opportunity, responsible for bringing together the data, applications, and IT resources needed to support growth and innovation. At Cisco we have the opportunity to observe how data center infrastructure
is evolving in response to market and technology trends. In no particular order, here are five important strategies we see companies using to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructure and transform their data centers to support innovation and growth.
The four pillars of computing — cloud, mobility, social, and analytics — are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these
ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.

Just like your business, technology never stops advancing. Each year, there are new ways that technology can automate processes, lower costs, and enhance customer and employee satisfaction - all with the goal of increasing revenue! And while it can be difficult to change how your business works, leaving old methods behind and embracing new technology can help lead your business to more success and growth.
The rate at which technology is evolving is increasing almost exponentially. In the business sector, hardware has given way to software-defined everything, while many on-premises technologies are now offered as a service. Much of the advances in technology over the last few years have been the direct result of the growing ubiquity of the cloud and faster connectivity speeds, both of which have enabled companies to adopt digital transformation technologies to help them work smarter and more efficiently.
Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?
Marketing technology is the fuel on which modern marketing organizations run. As the marketing technology landscape rapidly expands, CMOs are desperately trying to keep up with an evolving stack.

Paid search marketing has come a long way from keyword searches. Thanks to advances in technology, brands are shifting from targeting keywords to targeting people at key moments. Additionally, Google recently made significant changes to its search engine results pages. Right-rail ads have vanished and Google Shopping ad units are displayed more prominently on mobile. Other innovative changes are also on the horizon.
In this e-book, we identify six key areas of paid search advertising that are positioned to upend the marketing landscape and offer suggestions for how to take advantage of those trends.
