Organizations are pressured constantly to understand and react quickly to information.

With a capable and efficient business intelligence (BI) solution, all levels of an organization can receive information how, when, and where they need it to make faster and better aligned decisions. Every user can have access to all the capabilities of the BI solution, and often organizations can determine a user's business need to access information using typical characteristics that are defined by that user's role. Many organizations often satisfy this complexity and these diverse demands with a number of point solutions.

Die Berechnung der Zukunft

Genre: Business & Economics

Zuverlässige Vorhersagen sind doch möglich! Nate Silver ist der heimliche Gewinner der amerikanischen Präsidentschaftswahlen 2012: ein begnadeter Statistiker, als »Prognose-Popstar« und »Wundernerd« weltberühmt geworden. Er hat die Wahlergebnisse aller 50 amerikanischen Bundesstaaten absolut exakt vorausgesagt – doch damit nicht genug: Jetzt zeigt Nate Silver, wie seine Prognosen in Zukunft Terroranschläge, Umweltkatastrophen und Finanzkrisen verhindern sollen. Gelingt ihm die Abschaffung des Zufalls? Warum werden Wettervorhersagen immer besser, während die Terrorattacken vom 11.09.2001 niemand kommen sah? Warum erkennen Ökonomen eine globale Finanzkrise nicht einmal dann, wenn diese bereits begonnen hat? Das Problem ist nicht der Mangel an Informationen, sondern dass wir die verfügbaren Daten nicht richtig deuten. Zuverlässige Prognosen aber würden uns helfen, Zufälle und Ungewissheiten abzuwehren und unser Schicksal selbst zu bestimmen. Nate Silver zeigt, dass und wie das geht. Erstmals wendet er seine Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung nicht nur auf Wahlprognosen an, sondern auf die großen Probleme unserer Zeit: die Finanzmärkte, Ratingagenturen, Epidemien, Erdbeben, den Klimawandel, den Terrorismus. In all diesen Fällen gibt es zahlreiche Prognosen von Experten, die er überprüft – und erklärt, warum sie meist falsch sind. Gleichzeitig schildert er, wie es gelingen kann, im Rauschen der Daten die wesentlichen Informationen herauszufiltern. Ein unterhaltsamer und spannender Augenöffner!

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Fachhochschule Mainz, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mietmodelle fur die Nutzung gehosteter Software, die mit Schlagworten wie On-Demand, Cloud Computing, SaaS oder ASP vermarktet werden, sind in den letzten Jahren in vielen Bereichen des Softwaremarktes auf dem Vormarsch. Angetrieben durch die Wirtschaftskrise versprechen die Marketingaussagen von SaaS-Anbietern besonders mittelstandischen Unternehmen den kostengunstigen Zugang zu komplexen Geschaftsanwendungen, ohne das krisenbedingt eingeschrankte Investitionsbudget zu belasten. Nachdem sich SaaS-Losungen im Bereich des Customer Relationship Managements bereits erfolgreich etablieren konnten, und auch ERP-Systeme den Weg in die Cloud beschreiten, gewinnt dieser Bereich auch fur den Business Intelligence-Markt an Bedeutung. Klassisch werden Business Intelligence Produkte innerhalb des unternehmenseigenen Netzwerks (on-premise) betrieben, um die Anbindung an die in der Regel im gleichen Umfeld betriebenen Vorsysteme zu erleichtern. Die wachsende Zahl der Angebote fur das Hosting der klassischen Datenquellen fur BI-Losungen wie zum Beispiel ERP-Systeme oder Systeme fur Finanzbuchhaltung auf firmenexternen Systemen legt den Gedanken nahe, auch die Analyse dieser Daten auszulagern. Besonders fur die Zielgruppe der mittelstandischen Unternehmen, die uber ein begrenztes Budget fur den Aufbau und Erhalt einer eigenen BI-Infrastruktur verfugen, sind in letzter Zeit viele gehostete Losungen auf den Markt gekommen, die fur den BI-Markt an Bedeutung gewinnen. Das Software-as-a-Service-Modell verspricht Einsparungen im Bereich der IT-Investitionen und operativen Kosten bei kurzen Vertragslaufzeiten. Diese Bachelorarbeit soll die Frage klaren, ob der Ubertrag dieses Konzept auf Business Intelligence das Potential hat, herkommliche on-premise-Losungen zu ersetzen, und fur welche Einsatzgebiete ein solches Konzept in Frage kommt.

Make Information Governance Work : Best Practices, Step-by-Step Tasks, and Detailed Deliverables Most enterprises recognize the crucial importance of effective information governance. However, few are satisfied with the value of their efforts to date. Information governance is difficult because it is a pervasive function, touching multiple processes, systems, and stakeholders. Fortunately, there are best practices that work. Now, a leading expert in the field offers a complete, step-by-step guide to successfully governing information in your organization.

He explains how core governance components link with other enterprise information management disciplines, and provides workable “job descriptions” for each project participant. Giordano helps you successfully integrate key data stewardship processes as you develop large-scale applications and Master Data Management (MDM) environments. Then, once you’ve deployed an information asset, he shows how to consistently get reliable regulatory and financial information from it.
