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.

With the growing size and importance of information stored in todays 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 Oracles 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 organizations key business initiatives.

Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged. A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
