Welcome to our first issue of Enterprise Management 360 in 2013! This year’s expectations in the market nudge a touch higher, while overall company efficiency strategies shed more and more responsibilities on IT departments to slash costs.
Trends such as analytics and mobility have also hightened as we garner more and more information from different sources and channels. Consultancy firms like A.T. Kearney and Deloitte predict this to be the case. Revelytix and ParAccel talk how performances is extracted using data analytics, while ClickFox takes EM360 on a journey of discovery through a rather radical concept in this area known as ‘experienced analytics’.
Meanwhile, the eastern outsourcing landscape has also improved immeasurably in recent years, as developing Western IT companies such as Bleum has found out by taking advantage of talented Chinese engineers. Analst Mike Atwood also summarises the state of the Indian outsource industry.
This year EM360 is proud to have The Data Warehousing Institute as a key analyst partner, and will be contributing in our editions as well as online. Distinguised analyst Philip Russom discusses good data quality practices organisations can embrace.
