The value of Business Analytics (BA) to any organization is tremendously enhanced by expanding its use throughout that organization. However, for many traditional BA solutions, increasing use means increased costs for specialists that build the BA scenarios and the need for more infrastructure to support expanding BA loads. This vicious circle of increasing costs has ended with IBM Cognos Enterprise.
Cognos Enterprise changes the game by providing end users with the appropriate level of self service for Business Analytics that allows them to reap the value of improved insight, without the attendant costs. Using a self-service approach eliminates the bottle neck of BA software specialists, and allows end users to get exactly what they need. This eSeminar will consider key issues such as:
- The use of any data for a complete view of the information needed to make business decisions
- The spectrum of self-service dashboard creation and design to satisfy the diverse needs of any user
- Flexible access to dashboards for decisions at the point of impact

How to Make the Business Case for Replication Acceleration
Data protection is a critical part of business continuance and off-site data replication provides a powerful tool for protecting critical data assets. When too much data must be protected in too short of a time, though, storage managers are placed in an impossible position: leave critical data unprotected or risk missing recovery point objectives (RPOs). Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of RPOs, why meeting them is so challenging when data travels to remote locations, and how some enterprises mitigate those costs and protect more data within their existing replication windows.

Turn Copper into Gold with a Passive Optical Network
In the 1980s and 1990s optical communications revolutionized long-haul transmission. Today, the long distance and underwater communications backbone of every major provider is built on a foundation of optical networking technology. This technology has proven to be vastly superior to copper in terms of bandwidth, range, consumed power, longevity, reliability, and security.
