Book Description :

Business Intelligence is an essential tool used by enterprises for strategic, tactical and operational decision making. Business Intelligence most often needs to correlate data from disparate data sources to derive insights. Unifying data from disparate data sources and providing a unifying view of data is generally known as data integration. Traditionally enterprises employed ETL and data warehouses for data integration. However in last few years a technology known as "Data Virtualization" has found some acceptance as an alternative data integration solution. "Data Virtualization" is a federated database termed as composite database by McLeod/Heimbigner's in 1985. Till few years back Data Virtualization weren't considered as an alternative for ETL but was rather thought of as a technology for niche integration challenges. In this paper we hypothesize that for many BI applications "data virtualization" is a better cost effective data integration strategy. We analyze the system architecture of "Data warehouse" and "Data Virtualization" solutions. We further employ System Dynamics Model to compare few key metrics like "Time to Market" and "Cost of "Data warehouse" and "Data Virtualization" solutions. We also look at the impact of "Enterprise Data Standardization" on data integration.

Book Description :

Up to 70% and even more of corporate Analytics Efforts fail!!! Even after these corporations have made very large investments, in time, talent, and money, in developing what they thought were good data and analytics programs. Why? Because the executives and decision makers and the entire analytics team have not considered the most important aspect of making these analytics efforts successful. In this Book II of "It’s All Analytics!" series, we describe two primary things: 1) What this "most important aspect" consists of, and 2) How to get this "most important aspect" at the center of the analytics effort and thus make your analytics program successful. This Book II in the series is divided into three main parts: Part I, Organizational Design for Success, discusses ....... The need for a complete company / organizational Alignment of the entire company and its analytics team for making its analytics successful. This means attention to the culture – the company culture culture!!! To be successful, the CEO’s and Decision Makers of a company / organization must be fully cognizant of the cultural focus on ‘establishing a center of excellence in analytics’. Simply, "culture – company culture" is the most important aspect of a successful analytics program. The focus must be on innovation, as this is needed by the analytics team to develop successful algorithms that will lead to greater company efficiency and increased profits. Part II, Data Design for Success, discusses ..... Data is the cornerstone of success with analytics. You can have the best analytics algorithms and models available, but if you do not have good data, efforts will at best be mediocre if not a complete failure. This Part II also goes further into data with descriptions of things like Volatile Data Memory Storage and Non-Volatile Data Memory Storage, in addition to things like data structures and data formats, plus considering things like Cluster Computing, Data Swamps, Muddy Data, Data Marts, Enterprise Data Warehouse, Data Reservoirs, and Analytic Sandboxes, and additionally Data Virtualization, Curated Data, Purchased Data, Nascent & Future Data, Supplemental Data, Meaningful Data, GIS (Geographic Information Systems) & Geo Analytics Data, Graph Databases, and Time Series Databases. Part II also considers Data Governance including Data Integrity, Data Security, Data Consistency, Data Confidence, Data Leakage, Data Distribution, and Data Literacy. Part III, Analytics Technology Design for Success, discusses .... Analytics Maturity and aspects of this maturity, like Exploratory Data Analysis, Data Preparation, Feature Engineering, Building Models, Model Evaluation, Model Selection, and Model Deployment. Part III also goes into the nuts and bolts of modern predictive analytics, discussing such terms as AI = Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and the more traditional aspects of analytics that feed into modern analytics like Statistics, Forecasting, Optimization, and Simulation. Part III also goes into how to Communicate and Act upon Analytics, which includes building a successful Analytics Culture within your company / organization.

Book Description :

Business intelligence (BI) has evolved over several years as organizations have extended their online transaction processing (OLTP) capabilities and applications to support their routine operations. With online analytical processing (OLAP), organizations have also established the capability to extract internal and external data from a variety of sources to specifically obtain intelligence about non-routine and often less-structured arrangements. BI therefore refers to applications and technologies that are used to gather, provide access to, and analyze data and information about the operations of an organization. It has the capability of providing comprehensive insight into the more volatile factors affecting the business and its operations, thereby facilitating enhanced decision-making quality and contributing to the creation of business value. Larger and more sophisticated organizations have long been exploiting these capabilities. Business Intelligence for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) guides SMEs in replicating this experience to provide an agile roadmap toward business sustainability. The book points out that successful BI implementations have generated significant increases in revenue and cost savings, however, the failure rates are also very high. More importantly, it emphasizes that a full range of BI capabilities is not the exclusive purview of large organizations. It shows how SMEs make extensive use of BI techniques to develop the kind of agility endowing them with the organizational capability to sense and respond to opportunities and threats in an increasingly dynamic business environment. It points to the way to a market environment in which smaller organizations could have a larger role. In particular, the book explains that by establishing the agility to leverage internal and external data and information assets, SMEs can enhance their competitiveness by having a comprehensive understanding of the key to an agile roadmap for business sustainability.

Book Description :

Business intelligence (BI) software allows you to view different components of a business using a single visual platform, which makes comprehending mountains of data easier. BI is everywhere. Applications that include reports, analytics, statistics, and historical and predictive modeling are all examples of business intelligence. Currently, we are in the second generation of business intelligence software—called BI 2.0—which is focused on writing business intelligence software that is predictive, adaptive, simple, and interactive. As computers and software have evolved, more data can be presented to end users with increasingly visually rich techniques. Rich Internet application (RIA) technologies such as Microsoft Silverlight can be used to transform traditional user-interfaces filled with boring data into fully interactive analytical applications that quickly deliver insight from large data sets. Furthermore, RIAs now include 3D spatial-design capabilities that move beyond a simple list or grid and allow for interesting layouts of aggregated data. BI 2.0 implemented via an RIA technology can truly bring out the power of business intelligence and deliver it to an average user on the Web. Silverlight 4 Business Intelligence Software provides developers, designers, and architects with a solid foundation in business intelligence design and architecture concepts for Microsoft Silverlight. This book covers key business intelligence design concepts and how they can be applied without an existing BI infrastructure. Author Bart Czernicki provides you with examples of how to build small BI applications that are interactive, highly visual, statistical, predictive—and most importantly—intuitive to the end-user. Business intelligence isn’t just for the executive branch of a Fortune 500 company—it is for the masses. Let Silverlight 4 Business Intelligence Software show you how to unlock the rich intelligence you already have.

Book Description :

Managing Data in Motion describes techniques that have been developed for significantly reducing the complexity of managing system interfaces and enabling scalable architectures. Author April Reeve brings over two decades of experience to present a vendor-neutral approach to moving data between computing environments and systems. Readers will learn the techniques, technologies, and best practices for managing the passage of data between computer systems and integrating disparate data together in an enterprise environment. The average enterprise's computing environment is comprised of hundreds to thousands computer systems that have been built, purchased, and acquired over time. The data from these various systems needs to be integrated for reporting and analysis, shared for business transaction processing, and converted from one format to another when old systems are replaced and new systems are acquired. The management of the "data in motion" in organizations is rapidly becoming one of the biggest concerns for business and IT management. Data warehousing and conversion, real-time data integration, and cloud and "big data" applications are just a few of the challenges facing organizations and businesses today. Managing Data in Motion tackles these and other topics in a style easily understood by business and IT managers as well as programmers and architects. Presents a vendor-neutral overview of the different technologies and techniques for moving data between computer systems including the emerging solutions for unstructured as well as structured data types Explains, in non-technical terms, the architecture and components required to perform data integration Describes how to reduce the complexity of managing system interfaces and enable a scalable data architecture that can handle the dimensions of "Big Data"
