Whilst businesses of all kinds are utilizing data analytics, many are still only using it to make simple changes that lead to a set of rigid processes. Whereas the more customer-focused organizations are realizing that to deliver exceptional experiences, they need to be able to react to customer data in real-time and predict what might happen next. And that means going beyond simple analytics.

With data and analytics the new competitive battleground, businesses that take advantage will be the leaders; those that do not will fall behind. But with data so distributed, gaining this advantage is a huge challenge. Unless you have data virtualization, a better, faster way to meet your analytic data needs. Read this white paper to learn who needs data virtualization and what kinds of benefits others have achieved.
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. 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.
There are so many opportunities for businesses to collect data that getting a clear picture of all of it can be an uphill battle—and leveraging it for insight can be nearly impossible. But whether you are a start-up or a multinational conglomerate, not taking advantage of the available data is a mistake you cannot risk making. According to a 2016 McKinsey & Company study, over the past three years, digital leaders have achieved revenue growth five times greater, an operating margin profit eight times greater, and a return to shareholder value two times higher than laggards.
Companies today need a closed loop system that combines data, insight, and action. Download this paper to learn about the goals of a system of insight (SOI), the common set of technologies that all systems of insight need, and how an SOI can make a difference in your business.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.

Increasing your non-interest revenues without increasing customer fees that ultimately drive customers away can be a challenge.
The digital economy is opening up new ways to drive additional revenue from existing customers. The same technical innovations are also opening up new ways to communicate with customers about both digital and traditional offerings. But that results in customers becoming overwhelmed with advertising and marketing messages. They are forced to decide upfront who is providing relevant information and who to completely ignore. Ultimately, it comes down to trust.
Customers consider generic messages to be spam and learn to filter them out, even if they come from a known vendor. Over the long run, these types of marketing campaigns not only see diminishing returns, they can even damage your long-term relationship with customers and decrease revenues.
Micro-marketing overcomes the noise that traditional spam-marketing creates and establishes news levels of trust betwee
Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

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.
