Executives, managers, and users will not trust data unless they understand where it came from. Enterprise metadata is the “data about data” that makes this trust possible. Unfortunately, many healthcare and life sciences organizations struggle to collect and manage metadata with their existing relational and column-family technology tools.
MarkLogic’s multi-model architecture makes it easier to manage metadata, and build trust in the quality and lineage of enterprise data. Healthcare and life sciences companies are using MarkLogic’s smart metadata management capabilities to improve search and discovery, simplify regulatory compliance, deliver more accurate and reliable quality reports, and provide better customer service. This paper explains the essence and advantages of the MarkLogic approach.
Organizations undergoing digital transformations are dealing with amplified concerns around risk and security, which isn’t surprising. Digital transformation initiatives inevitably result in more points of access to enterprise infrastructure that are outside of existing controls, accessible by a greater number and more diverse set of identities, and proliferated across a distributed and dynamic infrastructure.
Knowing your privileged users is knowing your risk. Privileged access management tools themselves must be able to support automation in the authorization process and enable scalability through support for both dynamic operations and ephemeral infrastructure.
Better pinpointing attacks exploiting credential theft isn’t simply a question of accumulating more data but involves incorporating better data about privileged user behaviour, which can identify significant changes that represent real risk.

As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study.
At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

IDC believes that digitization and the 3rd Platform are driving enterprise leaders to consider significant upgrades to their business systems. Included in this list of systems are enterprise planning and performance management solutions. New tools must be fast and flexible to connect data from throughout an organization and continuously synchronize plans with changing market conditions. Organizations with planning and performance management needs should proactively evaluate connected EPM solutions as a central component of their digital enterprise strategies.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.

The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done.
New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.

In-memory technology—in which entire datasets are pre-loaded into a computer’s random access memory, alleviating the need for shuttling data between memory and disk storage every time a query is initiated—has actually been around for a number of years. However, with the onset of big data, as well as an insatiable thirst for analytics, the industry is taking a second look at this promising approach to speeding up data processing.

Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.
