Digital transformation encompasses both technological and human components. While many initiatives focus on ensuring that a company’s multi-cloud infrastructure is agile enough to meet changing demands around cloud mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), and big data, it’s equally important to empower business workers with the modern digital tools they need to be successful today. Artificial intelligence and machine learning can play a vital role on both of these fronts. In fact, 78 percent of CIOs and senior IT leaders are already looking to AI to address complexity,1 and by 2019, 30 percent of IT service desks will utilize machine learning to free up support capacity.2
The magnitude of change has forced companies to take stock of the experience they offer employees. As digital natives3 enter and advance in the workforce, talent retention is now a top priority. These workers expect to have the best tools; 93 percent of millennials cited modern and up-to-date technology as one of the most

Today’s businesses generate staggering amounts of data, and learning to get the most value from that data is paramount to success. Just as Amazon Web Services (AWS) has transformed IT infrastructure to something that can be delivered on-demand, scalably, quickly, and cost-effectively, Amazon Redshift is doing the same for data warehousing and big data analytics.
Amazon Redshift offers a massively parallel columnar data store that can be spun up in just a few minutes to deal with billions of rows of data at a cost of just a few cents an hour. Organizations choose Amazon Redshift for its affordability, flexibility, and powerful feature set:
• Enterprise-class relational database query and management system
• Supports client connections with many types of applications, including business intelligence (BI), reporting, data, and analytics tools
• Execute analytic queries in order to retrieve, compare, and evaluate large amounts of data in multiple-stage operations
Ask the average business user what they know about Business Intelligence (BI)
and data analytics, and most will claim to understand the concepts. Few, however,
will profess to know how analytics works or to have the skills needed to put it
into practice. Despite being knowledgeable about their industry and experienced
in running their organizations, the majority of business users lack expertise in
analytics and visualization techniques—but that doesn’t stop them from wanting
to have a go.
This situation has led to ease of use and accessibility becoming the main focus
for recent updates from all the leading BI vendors—but making tools easier and
more widely accessible is only part of the answer.
A better approach is to work both sides of the gap. To make tools that can
empower business users to discover and unlock value in their data—and that
extend capabilities for experts, so they can share the analytics workload, improve
efficiency, and focus on higher level work.

Data. It seems to be everywhere today and yet we can never get
enough of it. But as it turns out, a lack of data isn’t our problem
-- our problem is the difficulty piecing together, understanding and
finding the story in all the data that’s in front of us.
In software testing in particular, the need for consolidated,
meaningful test metrics has never been higher. As both the pace of
development and the cost of delivering poor quality software
increase, we need these metrics to help us test smarter, better and
Fortunately, business intelligence now exists to make this goal a
reality. The analytics these tools provide can help drive efficient
and effective testing by providing teams with insight on everything
from testing quality and coverage to velocity and more. And this
knowledge can position the QA team as trusted experts to advise
the entire software development team on steps that can ensure a
better quality end result.
Whether you’re onboarding new customers, cross- or up-selling, getting your supply chain or logistics right, or even collecting unpaid debt, making the best choice of decisions means weighing not just what’s right for your department – but what is best for the business overall. Not to mention what is optimal for your customers and partners.
And let’s face it, even with the availability of business intelligence and other analytic tools, it’s hard to know what constitutes the right actions to take in an era where Big Data consistently throws you curveballs. Prescriptive Analytics can help – but for most organizations, there are more questions and concerns than answers about how to implement it successfully.

Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance.
Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and
dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles
just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with
the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered
in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and
faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of
predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics
helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data
visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse
data preparation features for better data access. They support
collaboration, mashups, and storytelling.
TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern,
up-to-date tools for working with data.

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways.
