Journey through Enterprise IT Services
In Journey through Enterprise IT Services, Nadhan, HP Distinguished Technologist, explores the IT Services industry, and discusses technology trends in simplified terms.

Governing Enterprise Transformation with a New Style of Business Intelligence

Page 210 of the book published by D. Appleton and Company circa 1865 reads: “[Sir Henry Furnese] maintained a complete and perfect train of business intelligence.” Thus, term “Business Intelligence” is centuries old, but remains alive and kicking even today. But in recent times, as demand for access to information increases, enterprises are being challenged to process unstructured (and vast amounts of) data from the Internet of Things – in real time, and on an industrial scale.

Little Data can change the user experience with relevant information at HP Discover

The integration of next-generation technologies will change the focus in the near future to bringing “relevant information” to users based on conversation context, location, etc. This is the essence of the DT3574 - How future technologies will change the role between users and information session delivered by Seth Pickett, HP Senior Director. It is intended to be an open discussion on how enterprises will enable these technologies to gain competitive advantage. But the impact of such technologies starts with individuals like you and me. Say hello to Little Data, which is all about having timely access to information that matters to the individual with context. Little by little, appropriate chunks of relevant information will enrich the user experience when dealing with zettabytes of Big Data.

Internet of Things (IoT) matters at HP Discover

“You ain't seen nothin' yet,” is the phrase that comes to mind when I take a look at the HP Discover sessions on Internet of Things (IoT). Big Data mattered at past HP Discover conferences, but IoT is going to take it to the next level as projected in multiple sessions at HP Discover. Discover Theater session DT3621 from HP Labs discusses how the appliances in our homes, and the environment around us, generate data that must be harnessed and mined across the fabric of connected devices. At the same time, I am presenting on the on the impact of IoT on IT in a different Discover Theater session – DT3503. While gearing up for this session, I am reminded of a recent Twitter Chat, coordinated by the Enterprise CIO Forum, where it was abundantly clear that IoT is bound to matter to CIOs. Here are some of the key reasons why. 

A New Style of Data Science at HP Discover

Taking a sneak peek at the various sessions in the Big Data Track for HP Discover, one of the sessions that stands out is DT3619 - When Big Data becomes truly big and truly fastby Jaap Suermondt, VP, Analytics Lab, HP Labs. This session explores improvements in how to turn data into actionable information, and how to use sensing and control analytics to better understand the physical world around us. But to shape the world at zetta scale – as the abstract suggests – we will need more than computers and data science. What we need is a New Style of Data Scientists. Say hello to Data Artists!

It takes all types of data to discover the gold mine in your enterprise

“Is your Big Data a gold mine or garbage dump,” asks Brian Weiss, VP, HP Autonomy in his Big Data session at HP Discover. Weiss explains that enterprises need to be able to look at all types of data with context to glean actionable, meaningful insight – even for a simple phone call. You can capture different data elements about the phone call like the date, time, duration etc. But what was the prevailing mindset during the conversation? Was the caller (think customer) angry? How about having a solution to look at both the structured metadata about the phone call as well as the unstructured sentiment. Voila: HPExploreCloud - A solution that can discover the gold mine in your enterprise.
