The bottom line is that those that have the most customer insight will win because they know what customers want.
So the question is how will you get that insight? What is it that you don’t know about customers in the market(s) that you operate in? Do you have all the attributes about customers in your MDM system that could be of value to your business? Do you know about all the relationships that your customers have in your MDM system?
In most cases, the answer to the above questions is no which inevitably means one thing. You need more data
Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

Technology has become the heart and soul of every business. The hardware boundaries of IT have exploded beyond data centers, with mobile devices in the hands of both employees and customers alike. Application options have blossomed, from traditional to open source to software-as-a-service. Business has
become global, bringing with it a demand for round-the-clock agility. Employees expect that the applications they use at work should be as easy to use as the Web apps they use at home. Integration remains difficult, because it’s sometimes impossible to know what will happen when someone tries to pluck one strand out of the pile. IT workload and system complexity will only get more challenging, bringing the need for disintermediation
through service automation.

Scalability has always been an important characteristic of enterprise storage systems, maybe the most important, since the rationale of consolidating storage assumes that the system can easily grow with aggregate demand.
This white paper highlights the performance and scalability potential of InfoSphere DataStage 8.1 based on a benchmark test simulating a data warehouse scenario. The benchmark is designed to use the profiled situation to provide insight about how InfoSphere DataStage addresses key questions customers frequently ask when designing their information integration architecture.
The IHE framework and process provides a model that can help address these challenges of inefficient care coordination, disconnected data silos, and proprietary, non-scalable and cost prohibitive integration strategies.
As application workloads are redefined, data centers must change. This IDC Whitepaper looks at how network automation and orchestration can aid this transition, building simpler and more agile networks.
