Analytics and Workflow


There’s a big difference between B2C and B2B analytics that no vendors seem to be addressing, and it involves the consumption model. I recently spoke with K.V. Rao, founder and chief strategy officer of Aviso, an analytics company focused on sales, and his unabashed opinion is that “if you’re trying to expose insights and make things consumable, you have to address workflow.” He made a very good point — especially for buyers who may be having trouble figuring out what they need. What processes or workflows are they trying to influence?

Cisco Aims to Pin Down Shadow IT


Cisco on Wednesday unveiled Cloud Consumption as a Service, an offering designed to help enterprises discover and continually monitor public cloud use — aka “shadow IT” — across their systems. Shadow IT systems in an enterprise or organization expose it to security risks and hidden costs, and may give rise to compliance issues. Organizations are using up to 20 times more cloud services than IT is aware of, according to Cisco, and the problem exists in companies of all sizes and in all industries.
