Big Data analytics hold universal value because investors and businesses everywhere need to know more – about their customers, markets and partners. The more we know, the lower the risk of new ventures.

As in many families, my kids don’t share my excitement for my line of work. It’s not easy to explain the value of analytics and data management to a third grader, first grader and toddler.

Today, governments are under great pressure to operate more efficiently with fewer resources.

This is easier said than done. About 57% of public servants are challenged by limited resources and 33% struggle with disparate data sources, according to a recent Aberdeen Group survey of public sector agencies globally. To deliver more with less, Aberdeen Group found most respondents are using analytics to better manage performance, budgets and forecasts, and reduce operational costs.

Within the UK, public sector organisations face continued pressure to reduce expenditure and...

Boy is November a busy time of year! Since the first firework went off at the start of the month, this month has been a rollercoaster of conferences for the UK Attunity Gold Client team – from SAP TechEd Barcelona at the beginning of November to the UK & Ireland SAP User Group Conference last week.

At these events it’s always a fantastic opportunity for Attunity to have a booth in the exhibition hall. It’s our chance to show off our solutions to demonstrate how they can help you, see old friends and keep up to date with all the latest industry news.

It’s not hard to find examples of how Big Data analytics and artificial intelligence are re-defining healthcare.

Cerner integrates Electronic Medical Records and other files in a Cloudera Hadoop “Data Hub” that has saved lives by spotting bloodstream infections. IBM Watson, meanwhile, reviews millions of patient cases to diagnose a variety of medical conditions and prescribe personalized treatment plans.

Software like this exceeds the processing capacity of any doctor, which raises questions about the future of doctors and nurses.

And this job uncertainty...

Data silos are slowing companies down. You may have a ton of information available, but are your decision makers using the right data? Can they even access it? Extracting insight from large data sets can be difficult – especially when that data is spread out across your entire organization.

Many times, huge data sets that could be really useful to another department are kept under lock and key by IT or the business unit. There is a general consensus that companies need to get more data driven, but the issue of data hoarding is still really common. Hoarding results from several...

Large SAP environments are like Rubik’s Cubes —make a single move to change one square, and the cascading effects are huge because the parts all interconnect. You need to plan many moves ahead.

This is top of mind for any IT professional focused on SAP. At the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group ( ASUG ) meeting last Friday outside of Nashville, Tennessee, Jeffrey Yell joked about the pain of interdependency while presenting best practices for his Center of Excellence at Louisiana-Pacific Corp. [If] “I stub my toe, then my arm goes up and my ear hurts!”

As another example, most...

This month, we’re heading out to the AWS Lofts in San Francisco and New York City to discuss how to move the right data to Amazon Web Services at the right time, using Attunity CloudBeam .

If you are gathering large amounts of data from multiple sources that you want to move to Amazon Web Services you should join us. We’ll explain how one online retailer is working with Amazon EMR and MapR to accelerate data loading and how a leading manufacturer is migrating near real-time incremental changes from on-premises source data to Amazon Redshift with Attunity CloudBeam.

Next week I join the Attunity Gold Client team and thousands of SAP professionals from across Europe who will be descending on Barcelona to take part at the SAP TechEd in Spain. Hot on the heels of last month’s SAP TechEd in Las Vegas, Europe’s 2015 host city might not have as many casinos and dancing fountains, but it is filled with quirky art and architecture, and a vibrant Spanish street scene, including tasty Tapas bars and Las Ramblas. This is a tremendous opportunity to share, collaborate, network and gain access to SAP subject matter experts.

Our clients tell us that...
