Cloud services to improve IT economics

As you expand big data and analytics capabilities throughout your organization, you also need to keep IT costs under control. Taking delivery of software, solutions, infrastructure, platforms and services on the cloud can accelerate the value of big data and analytics capabilities, offering scalability with limited upfront investment.

Governance and security for trusted data

To enable decision makers to act with confidence, you need to ensure that the data they use is clean, timely and accurate.
Data governance should be in place throughout the entire lifecycle—from collection and warehousing to storage and disposal. And security and privacy measures should be in place to protect data from both internal and external threats.
