Aberdeen Group Publishes Business Intelligence (BI), Networking and Application Performance Research

BOSTON, MA, Dec 12, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its IT Infrastructure/Virtualization and Cloud, Enterprise Mobility and Communications, Retail and Consumer Markets, and Business Intellligence (BI) research practices.

"Managed Reporting: Are Your Managers Worth $134 ," prepared by David White, Senior Analyst for the Aberdeen Group Business Intelligence research practice, states that from an end-user's perspective, business intelligence (BI) comes in three broad classes: Managed reporting, interactive dashboards, and visual data discovery. Managed reporting is the foundational layer and first step in executing a comprehensive BI strategy. With basic management information needs addressed through managed reporting, many companies move on to explore more sophisticated, complementary solutions. This analyst insight, based on data collected in two surveys into business intelligence, explores the benefits (and costs) of adopting BI in the form of managed reporting. In addition, it highlights the steps that firms can take to optimize their deployments, and prepare the ground for future use of dashboards and visual data discovery tools.

This report looks at how, through proper testing, organizations can ensure that their applications will run properly, will be optimized for high-traffic situations, will have good usability on a variety of devices and will offer users an excellent user experience. Testing ensures all of this can happen before the application deploys, rather than finding out that there is a problem after end-users encounter it.

"Control Video, Social, and Recreational Applications and Don't Let them Control Your Network," also authored by Jim Rapoza, examines how companies manage the challenge that social systems and video presents to network and internet infrastructure, and how businesses successfully leverage application level network controls to limit the effect that these social applications have on the performance and reliability of business critical applications. Organizations that implement application-level controls to manage application use, including social networking, video, and rich media, gain significant benefits in overall application performance.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
