Predictive Analytics Redefine Data Utility

Ensuring a healthy future depends on understanding the past: That’s the fundamental premise of predictive analytics. Data scientists collect and analyze raw data to find patterns and connections. They study whether past activities worked in unison and help decision-makers gather information to improve future operations. Predictive analytics could change how the world does business — and how you do business, too. As early as 1958, when FICO founders first used predictive modeling to assess credit risks, industry analysts recognized the benefits of using past information to formulate future strategies. Today, the internet generates massive data quantities for that work. For...

Business owners often believe that purchasing off-the-shelf or pre-built software solutions will be cheaper and easier. However, that’s often a misconception: Finding a ready-made software solution that meets unique needs isn’t always as easy as clicking "buy." Some products may meet some needs while another meets others — but chances are there isn’t a single perfect solution. So, how can company leaders prioritize and figure out what’s most important in potential software products? As you research available out-of-the-box software solutions, cloud offerings, and hosted options to deploy in your environment, we suggest you consider these five factors for your company before...

Oil and Gas Industry Leaders Leverage New Tech

Terms like “the cloud,” “big data,” “analytics,” and “the Internet of Things (IoT)” are making news, and insiders mention we’re in a new digital revolution. Why?

Proposed H-1B Visa Program Changes Spell Uncertainty

It’s nearly impossible to have missed political discourse regarding the Trump administration’s temporary travel ban and proposed changes to work visas in the United States. These changes could have broad implications and impact many people in various industries.

Maybe you change your phone plan to an international one so that you can communicate to your friends and family back home. But what about tools for translation - how do you make sure your devices still work? How do you make sure you can understand the local language? Sure, these concerns aren't quite as pressing or as obvious as, say, buying a plane ticket, but they will certainly affect your trip if you neglect to address them. Without them, your ability to function drops significantly. In IT, data travelling between...

Why IT Should Be an M&A Power Player

Scenario: After decades of operating under one model, a company’s strategy changes; the board, the executives and the market forces in a grand alliance decide to shift the operations in a new direction. Will they become, smaller, nimbler, more focused? Or will they expand their reach, conquering new markets or business verticals?

Optimized Process, Optimized Business

Optimized process make for an optimized business. Makes sense, right? But Optimization's powerful foe is the Status Quo, which relies on inertia and a "well, we've always done it this way" attitude" to halt change and stifle innovation. In today's competitive and fast-moving environment, however, businesses can't afford to hesitate or lag behind in adapting to the marketplace. Business Process Management (BPM) is a discipline that involves the design, analysis, monitoring, and control of these processes. With BPM, processes can become more transparent and therefore easier to monitor, which in turn helps to identify and correct any bottlenecks or problems. With BPM, the time and effort...
