When enterprises consider the benefits of data analysis, what's often overlooked is the challenge of data variety, and that most successful outcomes are driven by it. Yet businesses are still struggling with how to query distributed, heterogeneous data using a unified data model. Fortunately, Knowledge Graphs provide a schema flexible solution based on modular, extensible data models that evolve over time to create a truly unified solution. How is this possible? Download and discover: • Why businesses should organize information using nodes and edges instead of rows, columns and tables • Why schema free and schema rigid solutions eventually prove to be impractical • The three categories of data diversity including semantic and structural variety

As combinations of both internal and externally-imposed business policies imply dependencies on managed data artifacts, organizations are increasingly instituting data governance programs to implement processes for ensuring compliance with business expectations. One fundamental aspect of data governance involves practical application of business rules to data assets based on data elements and their assigned values. Yet despite the intent of harmonizing data element definitions and resolution of data semantics and valid reference values, most organizations rarely have complete visibility into the metadata associated with enterprise data assets.

Entity-relationship (E-R) modeling is a tried and true notation for use in designing Structured Query Language (SQL) databases, but the new data structures that Not-Only SQL (NOSQL) DBMSs make possible can’t be represented in E-R notation. Furthermore, E-R notation has some limitations even for SQL database design. This article shows how a new notation, the Conceptual and Objective Modeling (COM) notation, is able to represent NOSQL designs that are beyond the reach of E-R notation. At the end, it gives a peek into the tutorial workshop to be given at the 2015 NOSQL Conference in San Jose, CA, US, in August, which will provide opportunities to apply COM notation to practical problems.

Enterprises are focusing on becoming ever more data-driven, meaning that it is simply unacceptable to allow data to go to waste. Yet, as the amount of data businesses collect and control continues to increase exponentially, many organizations are failing to derive enough business value from their data. Companies are feeling the pressure to extract maximum value from all of their data, both defensive and offensive. Defensive analytics are the “plumbing aspects” of data management that must be captured to mitigate risk and establish a basic understanding of business performance. Offensive analytics build on defensive analytics and support overarching business objectives, strategic initiatives and long-term goals using predictive models. In this whitepaper, you will learn how to address many challenges, including streamlining operational reporting, delivering insight and providing a single, unified platform for everyone.

Transform your finance operations into a strategic, data-driven engine Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review,1 less than half of an organisation’s structured data is actively used in making decisions. The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analysts’ time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.2

The decision to move business workloads and applications to the cloud impacts all parts of the business and isn’t a decision isolated to the IT team. Our latest research study on the different motives, concerns and experiences of executive peers and business stakeholders when securing buy-in for a strategic IT move found 97% of C-level executives in ANZ suffered from migration regret during their first cloud migration. Packed with telling hindsight, over 200 c-suite executives shared their expectations and experiences during the cloud migration journey. They reveal what they would have done differently - namely enhanced communication and a clear plan of action - and offer practical advice to help others get buy-in internally and secure funding to support a move to the cloud.

This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to analyzing and mitigating the risks of migrating to PostgreSQL. With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration. A key decision criteria for adopting any technology is whether it can support requirements for existing applications while also fitting into longer term strategies and needs. The first section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of migrating from legacy and commercial solutions to PostgreSQL: ? Schema and code migration ? Data migration ?

"This whitepaper from the SANS Institute focuses on the growing use and benefits derived from information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) convergence which includes more effective management and operation of contemporary control systems. IT/OT convergence carries unique challenges that make managing and securing an industrial control system (ICS) more difficult. This is due to greater technical complexity, expanded risks and new threats to more than just business operations. This paper explores the issues that arise with the blending of IT and OT into combined cyber-physical systems where risks must be identifed and managed. Download this report to get answers to these questions: -Why are digital asset inventories critical for IT/OT security risk management? -How does knowledge about risks and vulnerabilities to IT/OT systems lead to better risk management? -Can applying even a few of Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls make a marked difference in the securit

If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem. Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.
