In today’s global economy, innovation matters. For teams to innovate rapidly and with great frequency, they must be able to clearly communicate and closely collaborate. Miscommunication, misunderstanding and misinterpretation only leads to costly errors, bottlenecked business processes and market misfires. Most of these issues are avoidable. A convergence of low-cost but high-quality technology and a highly competitive business environment is making video collaboration a channel of choice for today’s information workers and decision makers. The availability of relatively low-cost technology—including high-quality video conferencing equipment, high-bandwidth networks and easy-to-use applications and tools—is bringing video collaboration within reach of today’s workforce. The impact on innovation and productivity—as well as critical business processes, from customer service to problem-solving—is only just starting to be felt.

As organizations aim to increase business agility and streamline costs, demand for public cloud services continues to grow exponentially, with Gartner predicting it will become the majority of new IT spending by 2016. This evolving application ecosystem with its intensive performance demands is placing new pressures on traditional public cloud services. Amid this shift, Internap surveyed nearly 250 Internet infrastructure decision makers to gain insight into cloud adoption, requirements and challenges – including the differences in feedback between the cloud-wise, those using cloud services, and the cloud-wary, those with no near-term plans to use cloud services. The details of these findings are reflected in this Cloud Landscape Report.

For many years, companies have been building data warehouses to analyze business activity and produce insights for decision makers to act on to improve business performance. These traditional analytical systems are often based on a classic pattern where data from multiple operational systems is captured, cleaned, transformed and integrated before loading it into a data warehouse. Typically, a history of business activity is built up over a number of years allowing organizations to use business intelligence (BI) tools to analyze, compare and report on business performance over time. In addition, subsets of this data are often extracted from data warehouses into data marts that have been optimized for more detailed multi-dimensional analysis.
