CIOs will thwart cybersecurity threats with behavioral analytics in 2017

CIO.com - Business Analytics - December 27, 2016 - 4:45pm

Companies are investing more money in emerging technologies that can help anticipate and detect a variety of threats, including phishing scams and advanced persistent threats, both of which are weighing heavily on the minds’ of corporate board members. For 2017 CIOs are eyeing tools that use anomaly-detecting analytics and machine learning algorithms to protect their companies’ data.

“Our level of investments is increasing because of the increasing capabilities of the threat actors,” says Bob Worrall, CIO of Juniper Networks, who spent 12 percent more on cybersecurity tools in 2016 that he spent in 2015. His budget will increase more in 2017 as he purchases tools to shield Juniper’s corporate data and intellectual property. “As the bad guys get smarter we have to as well.”

Analytics 50 proves the power of a good partnership

CIO.com - Business Analytics - December 23, 2016 - 12:04am

We write a lot about collaboration and partnerships at CIO.com. After all, it has never been more important for IT leaders to partner — whether that means working with the growing number of vendors that provide critical competencies once firmly rooted on-premises or, perhaps more importantly, partnering with CMOs and other C-level executives in departments that command their own technology budgets.

While our primary role as technology journalists is to provide information to help you do your jobs better, leverage your expertise and advance your careers, we sometimes have the opportunity to practice what we preach.

[ Analytics 50 winners for 2016 ]

We’re proud of our partnership with Drexel University and the LeBow College of Business, and the fruits of that collaboration: the Analytics 50 awards program. This initiative, which we expect to expand in the coming years, is a blend of academia and media. A lot of partnerships look good on paper. This one certainly did, because Drexel’s Decision Sciences department and CIO.com are both committed to reporting on analytics. It’s a natural fit. But partnerships don’t thrive because they look good on paper.

IDG Contributor Network: Leveraging the value of data-centric processes

CIO.com - Business Analytics - December 14, 2016 - 12:30pm

In previous articles, we talked about three of the five capabilities needed to turn data into insight. The fourth key capability is to have “data-centric processes.” What we mean by this is twofold:

  1. There are processes embedded into the organization that are focused on data and data management and optimization.
  2. There is a recognition that data is an input and a valuable output of other processes in the organization, and these inputs and outputs are understood and retained to extend data understanding in the organization.

Many articles have been written about data-management-specific processes, including the two previous installments in our CIO.com series — "Ensuring the Quality of 'Fit for Purpose' Data" and "Mastering and Managing Data Understanding." In this installment, we cover processes that already exist within an organization. We look at the role of data and discuss how to make the related processes more data-centric. We also break down the ways data-centric processes can have the most impact on an organization in:

Little-known SaaS provider helps CIOs corral IT costs

CIO.com - Business Analytics - November 17, 2016 - 7:21pm

SAN DIEGO -- CIOs have long struggled to connect the dots between the cost and value of IT services they delivered to their business partners. This disconnect is bound to widen as IT implements new digital capabilities for business initiatives. To help CIOs cross the chasm and communicate with their business peers, a startup has pioneered what it calls technology business management (TBM).

Apptio sells a SaaS analytics platform and applications to help CIOs calculate and benchmark IT costs and value. Since launching in 2007, Apptio has racked up 40 percent of the Fortune 100, including FedEx, Cisco and Microsoft. Apptio, which went public this summer, just announced revenues of $40.6 million, up 26 percent from the third quarter of 2015.

Executives still mistrust insights from data and analytics

CIO.com - Business Analytics - November 2, 2016 - 8:29pm

Data and analytics are increasingly becoming central to business decision-making, especially in areas such as driving customer growth, improving productivity and managing risk. But even as organizations push to make their decision-making more data-driven, business leaders accustomed to making decisions based on gut-instincts and experience are having trouble trusting insights from data and analytics (D&A).

Forrester Consulting, commissioned by the Data and Analytics Global team at professional services firm KPMG, recently surveyed 2,165 data and analytics decision-makers from a range of industries in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, the U.K. and the U.S.

IDG Contributor Network: Indy Car driver Sam Schmidt uses his head to win. Literally.

CIO.com - Business Analytics - October 19, 2016 - 11:30am

Sam Schmidt didn’t need a steering wheel to manage a 152 mph pace at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in May. He just tilted his head, and technology did the rest.

The winning Indy Car driver and team owner is a quadriplegic, the result of a 2000 Orlando Speedway crash. Working with automotive engineers and medical professionals, Schmidt transformed a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette into a semi-autonomous motorcar (called SAM for short). SAM responds to Schmidt’s head and eye movements through lightning-fast advanced computing technologies so he can pursue his passion: racing.

Arrow Electronics, Inc. What took us so long?

The SAM car is possible thanks to massive amounts of data, advanced technologies like analytics, and affordable, big computing power. You can toss around buzzwords like “big data” and “IoT” all day, but affordable data storage and big computing are what make the real difference.

IDG Contributor Network: The what’s now and what’s next for digital

CIO.com - Business Analytics - October 11, 2016 - 4:37pm

In recent months, we’ve explored how digital transformation within businesses has sparked parallel transformations in C-suites across the globe. The rise of CDOs (chief digital officers) has created big change at the top of many organizations as they work to address the digital demands hitting all levels of business today. Pick a department — finance, customer service, IT, marketing, HR, R&D — and you are very likely to see one or more mobile, social, cloud and data initiatives at work. While business leaders at the top are looking ahead and asking “What’s next for digital?” and “How can we prepare?” many teams on the ground are working through “What’s now?” They are still adapting to the many ways digital is reshaping how they collaborate, engage and deliver.

IDG Contributor Network: Big data – a road map for smarter data

CIO.com - Business Analytics - October 7, 2016 - 4:00pm

Big data is a term that is used in the information technology industry to mean building multiple sources of information together into a data lake, a data repository built on relatively inexpensive high performing computer hardware. The value of your data can be extracted from a data lake through existing reporting and business analytic systems. Furthermore, the advent of machine learning capabilities for big data solutions provides additional analytical capabilities. Machine learning has derived meaningful insights which can be used to support business development and organizational growth.

Machine learning and big data

Big data in its current form will reduce your operational and infrastructure costs, but will not provide you with any additional value for your business over what enterprise data warehouses provides. Why is that? The machine learning of today, that is employed within big data solutions, has no more capability than the statistical packages that are already in use within enterprise data warehouses solutions.

Machine analytics fuel Cardinal Health's IT transformation

CIO.com - Business Analytics - October 3, 2016 - 5:59pm

Companies struggling with the large volumes of data their computer systems generate are turning to a new crop of software that uses algorithms to analyze their IT operations. It's a decidedly big data approach to the challenge of finding and fixing technology glitches that hamper service production.

Cardinal Health, a Fortune 21 health products company generating $125 billion in revenues across 60 countries, knows this scenario all too well. A glut of acquisitions had rendered Cardinal's technology footprint so broad that it was blind to problems plaguing its legions of servers and software systems. And while Cardinal gauged system health with monitoring tools and domain experts, it struggled with prolonged system outages because the volume and velocity of data produced made it impossible to get a holistic representation of IT operations.
