Today, the need for self-service data discovery is making data governance a charged topic. As business-driven data discovery emerges as a fundamental need, the ability to ensure that data and analytics are trustworthy and protected becomes both more difficult and more imperative.

Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.

Aberdeen recently polled our analysts in the IT infrastructure group to determine the key performance indicators that set Best-in-Class information technology organizations apart from their competition. We collected data from our application performance management, cloud, virtualization, and business continuity practices, and found that Best-in-Class companies are superior when it comes to staff training, documentation, data analysis, and processes top organizations take, develop, and carry out to earn their Best-in-Class status and enable their organizations to succeed.
Best-in-Class companies put out low-cost, high quality products, in the timeframe intended, and as a result deliver on 87% of revenue targets and see a 15% increase in profit margins.
Based on the experiences of 148 respondents, this report will explore what makes a product development company successful. It will look at the differences between the Best-in-Class and their competitors to see what they attribute margins/revenue to.
Today’s leading organizations realize their software developers provide a significant strategic advantage. In many cases, the ability to quickly create and deploy new solutions, often using innovative technologies, is what sets one organization apart from its competitors.

Fact: Training pays. Invest in your employees and that investment comes right back to you. In one survey, 85 percent of workers indicated that employer-provided training increased their own workplace loyalty. The same survey showed that workers who trained just one hour per week saved 1.8 hours per week—or 83.7 hours per year—through productivity gains.
With each new day comes a new opportunity, and perhaps nowhere is that truer than in the world of tech. When you're preparing a team, it helps to know what changes are coming. There are opportunities for your team to jump ahead of the competition by knowing what training you’ll need and what skills to hire for.
Certification can play a crucial role in tech professions, especially for people who work on the IT side. It allows pros to demonstrate their skills and simplifies the recruiting, retaining and developing of staff.
You set aside hours every week for them to train, you tie learning to performance objectives, and you talk about their progress regularly. But then you see the total usage hours and you’re, well, underwhelmed. Maybe your team doesn’t need training afterall? Not so fast.
Teams that regularly produce large reports with many contributors and review cycles have no choice but to use spreadsheets, slide decks and word processing documents. But these tools require significant manual effort to produce a final report.

Rapid changes in technology and software, and the nearly universal shift to electronically stored information (ESI), has made eDiscovery more complex and expensive. In a movement to simplify and standardize their procedures—and dissolve some of the extra tensions surrounding litigation—many organizations are bringing phases of the eDiscovery process in house, in particular legal hold.
Among other benefits, Code42 eDiscovery simplifies legal hold management. Litigation preparation can be a large task crossing over many departments, but will consistently feature two main players: Legal and IT. This document focuses on those two groups, and aims to enable one to see the eDiscovery world through the point of view of one group—or the other. Read more to find out the details.
