Predictive analytics, sometimes called advanced analytics, is a term used to describe a range of analytical and statistical techniques to predict future actions or behaviors. In business, predictive analytics are used to make proactive decisions and determine actions, by using statistical models to discover patterns in historical and transactional data to uncover likely risks and opportunities. Predictive analytics incorporates a range of activities which we will explore in this paper, including data access, exploratory data analysis and visualization, developing assumptions and data models, applying predictive models, then estimating and/or predicting future outcomes.

Constant market shifts and changing customer preferences add to the challenge of outperforming your competitors and surpassing stakeholder expectations. But what can be done to steer your organization down the path to greater success? By now, we all know it’s not just historical reporting about the past that will provide the answers needed to drive a business forward. Everyone – from executives and analysts to frontline staff – must have access to insights about the future that will enable them to make the best decisions and take the actions needed to keep their organizations agile. This means the ability to peer into data, explore it, understand it, analyze it and produce insights that provide those aha moments and take actions on it. Such things cannot be done with multiple tools that are rigid, limiting and difficult to use. A new breed of business intelligence is required. Gone are the days when reports looked at singular issues, took possibly days or weeks to create, and required

For both finance and HR, this separation is often driven by organizational obstacles, disparate systems and data sources, regulatory uncertainty, and a lack of complete visibility into the business. As Joseph Fanutti, CFO of Bill Gosling Outsourcing, says of his own organization’s challenges, “Finance operated its own silo, HR its own, operations its own. There was a lack of consistency in terms of how we viewed the business.” He recalls, “Numbers were always challenged, no one could agree on metrics, and people couldn’t agree on what actions to take going forward.” If this situation sounds familiar, that’s because it’s commonplace across organizations the world over. Strategic uncertainty and incomplete data are symptoms of a larger problem: a lack of unification among finance, HR, and operations teams. Managers need to make financial and people decisions in tandem, yet traditional systems store this information independently. This separation creates multiple versions of the same u

Location analytics is the process of integrating geographical data into business intelligence (BI) and analytics-led decision making. Location analytics creates meaningful insight from relationships found in geospatial data to solve a broad variety of business and social problems. Location data is found everywhere – with an item or a device, in a conversation or behavior, in machines or sensors, tied to a customer or competitor, attached to a database record or recorded from vehicles or other moving objects. Organizations want to take advantage of location data to improve decisions, create better customer engagement and experiences, reduce risks and automate business processes.

Consider the many ways that a customer encounters your brand – organic results on a search engine, display media campaigns, social media links, re-targeting on external sites, etc. One thing is certain – consumer journeys are far from linear. They can occur across multiple platforms, devices and browsers. The problem is that organizations are often constrained to channel-limiting decisions regarding their media investment allocations. Marketing attribution helps you analyze the impact and business value of company-generated marketing interactions to help make the best marketing investment decisions. The challenge is to interpret the massive volumes of customer data that continues to expand day by day.

More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow. Aberdeen’s research report, “Top Performers Know It’s Time to Migrate to Cloud ERP: Here’s Why and How,” uncovers the reasons successful companies are choosing cloud over on-premises ERP models.

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.

With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio

Databases have long served as the lifeline of the business. Therefore, it is no surprise that performance has always been top of mind. Whether it be a traditional row-formatted database to handle millions of transactions a day or a columnar database for advanced analytics to help uncover deep insights about the business, the goal is to service all requests as quickly as possible. This is especially true as organizations look to gain an edge on their competition by analyzing data from their transactional (OLTP) database to make more informed business decisions. The traditional model (see Figure 1) for doing this leverages two separate sets of resources, with an ETL being required to transfer the data from the OLTP database to a data warehouse for analysis. Two obvious problems exist with this implementation. First, I/O bottlenecks can quickly arise because the databases reside on disk and second, analysis is constantly being done on stale data. In-memory databases have helped address p

The term “Cloud First” was initially popularized by Vivek Kundra, who formerly held the post of White House CIO and launched this strategy for U.S. federal government IT modernization at the Cloud Security Alliance Summit 2011. The underlying philosophy of the cloud-first strategy is that organizations must initially evaluate the suitability of cloud computing to address emergent business requirements before other alternatives are considered. This paper offers guidance to help organizations establish a systematic and repeatable process for implementing a cloud-first strategy. It offers a high-level framework for identifying the right stakeholders and engaging with them at the right time to reduce the risk, liabilities, and inefficiencies that organizations can experience as a result of adhoc cloud decisions. The goal of this guidance is to help ensure that any new cloud program is secure, compliant, efficient, and successfully implements the organization’s key business initiatives.
