Organizations are pressured constantly to understand and react quickly to information. In addition, the complexity and volumes of data for all aspects of the environments in which organizations operate is increasing. Markets, regulatory environments, customer and supplier data, competitive information, and internal operational information all impact how data is viewed and interpreted. 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. With IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence (BI), you can satisfy needs throughout the user community and ensure that everyone can work and collaborate from a consistent set of data. In addition, IT is simplified with fewer components to deploy, manage, and maintain. Organizations need to make the most of a workforce that is increasingly driven to multi-task, network, and collaborate. IBM Cognos BI delivers analytics that everyone in the organization can use to answer key business questions. This IBM RedguideTM publication highlights features of IBM Cognos BI version 10.1.

Warum die meisten Prognosen falsch sind und manche trotzdem zutreffen - Der New York Times Bestseller

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.

Bestsellerautor Linwood Barclay ("Ohne ein Wort") ist zurück! "Lügennest" bildet den Auftakt seiner neuen "Promise Falls"-Trilogie: Drei Thriller, die sich mit den Abgründen einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt beschäftigen, deren Mitbewohner auch nicht vor Mord zurückschrecken... Für Promise Falls sieht es düster aus. In der Kleinstadt an der US-Ostküste gibt es kaum Perspektiven – und vor allem keine Jobs. Auch die Zeitung von Reporter David Harwood ist pleite, trotzdem steckt er seine Nase weiterhin in Sachen, die ihm merkwürdig vorkommen. Wie zum Beispiel in diese Geschichte mit dem Baby. Seine Cousine Marla schwört, ein Engel habe es ihr gegeben. Aber es sieht eher so aus, als hinge alles mit einem brutalen Mord am anderen Ende der Stadt zusammen. Und das ist nicht der einzige Abgrund, der sich in Promise Falls auftut. Linwood Barclay ist "ein wahrer Spannungsmeister." Stephen King
