New Wikibon Big Data Research Reveals Hadoop, NoSQL Making Gains in the Enterprise

Marlborough, Mass. (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

Research from Wikibon indicates that new approaches to data management, most notably Hadoop and NoSQL, are already making inroads in the enterprise. According to a survey of 303 Big Data practitioners, 36% have deployed Hadoop to support either pilot or production workloads. In addition, the majority of Hadoop practitioners have shifted at least one workload from an existing enterprise data warehouse or mainframe to Hadoop (See Figure 1).

Hadoop is not going to replace the data warehouse, at least not any time soon. But the open source Big Data framework does pose a threat to the cushy profit margins of data warehouse vendors including, but not limited to, IBM, Teradata, Microsoft and Oracle, said Wikibon Principal Research Contributor Jeff Kelly, who directed the survey and resulting analysis. Hadoop and the data warehouse are competing for specific workloads in the enterprise and, hence, the related revenue.

The findings are just two of many from the research, entitled Big Data Analytics in the Enterprise, H1 2014. To get a sense of the ways Big Data is used in the enterprise and what, if any, barriers to success are common among early adopters, Wikibon surveyed 303 Big Data practitioners in the U.S. and Canada in May 2014. Wikibon analysts also conducted in-depth phone and in-person interviews with several Big Data practitioners.

Among the top barriers to Big Data analytics success cited by survey respondents were difficulty transforming data into suitable form for analysis, difficulty integrating multiple data sources and difficulty integrating Big Data technologies into existing infrastructure.

Through our research, Wikibon has identified a number of common barriers to successful Big Data analytics projects. Interestingly, many of the top barriers are not related to analyzing data per se, but preparing data to be analyzed, said Kelly. There are also a number of non-technology barriers cited by respondents, including challenges selling the value of Big Data analytics to reluctant end-users on the business side.

Among other insights, the survey findings reveal the important role of professional services in Big Data analytics projects, the median data size and types of data involved in Big Data analytics projects, and the impact of public cloud computing Big Data services on existing projects.

For additional information on the survey findings, please contact John Greco at john.greco(at)wikibon(dot)org or 774-463-3400.

About Wikibon: Wikibon is a research and advisory firm focused on disruptive technologies and their impact on the enterprise. Wikibons core coverage areas are Big Data, cloud computing and software-led infrastructure.

SCOTUS Patent Ruling Has Profound Implications for Big Data: Professor Daryl Lim at Chicagos John Marshall Law School

(PRWEB) July 09, 2014

An inventive idea with tangible effects deserves a patent, but an attempt to patent abstract business ideas doesnt meet those standards, the U.S. Supreme Court recently decided in Alice Corporation v. CLS Bank International (Docket #13-298).

In its ruling, the court stressed the need to preserve a patent-free zone did not want patent owners monopolizing basic tools for scientific and technological work,, according to Professor Daryl Lim of The John Marshall Law School. The case has profound implications for the financial services sectors, and those involved in the collection and analysis of Big Data, including social media services, cloud computing and wearable technology, Lim added.

Einstein couldnt patent his theory of relativity simply by saying a computer would do the calculations, Lim added. The idea must improve the way a specific type of computer function, and that connection must not have been well-understood, routine or conventional, but rather achieve a result that was not obtainable before.

Alice Corp. argued it held the rights to a computer program used to guarantee payments for financial trades settled by holding funds in escrow. Alice Corp. argued that its computer software protecting these payments was first patented in 1992. However, developer Ian Shepherd failed to produce the computer source codes or how the computer would work for these escrow payments. Despite these shortcomings, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office gave Alice Corp. three subsequent patents for its process.

The corporation never used the patented system in any business. Consequently, the company has been dubbed a patent troll.

When Alice Corp. learned CLS Bank was using a similar technology, it argued patent infringement. CLS Bank claimed it developed its own computer system for the trillions of dollars transferred through its banking network. In 2007, CLS Bank sued Alice Corp., charging its patents were unenforceable. Lower courts agreed with CLS Bank, but Alice Corp. countersued.

The United States Supreme Court struck down the patent claims by Alice Corp. Writing for the court, Justice Clarence Thomas said Shepherds patent filings amounted to nothing significantly more than an instruction to apply the abstract idea of intermediated settlement using some unspecified, generic computer.

The court also found ineligible Alice Corp.s other patent claims to a computer system carrying out those instructions and components for the computer codes for substantially the same reasons, Lim said.

The courts focus on a tangible effect was clearly an attempt to raise the bar on software patents which form the bulk of the litigation currently clogging up the courts, Lim said. But it also knew from the briefs filed that many software and Internet companies need these types of patents to get funding. For these companies, having those patents is an existential issue.

Schedule Viewer, LLC Announces Integration to i-Plexus Solutions for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 28, 2014

Schedule Viewer, LLC announced today that their Non-Emergency Medical Transportation software (MediRoutes) now integrates directly to the i-Plexus Solutions, allowing for internet based medical claims clearinghouse and medical billing service solutions.

Advantages of Electronic Submission:

Electronic data interchange (EDI) allows faster, more efficient, and cost-effective claim submission for providers. EDI, performed in accordance with nationally recognized standards, supports the health care industrys efforts to reduce administrative costs. The benefits of billing electronically include:

Reduction of overhead and administrative costs. EDI eliminates the need for paper claim submission. It has also been proven to reduce claim rework (adjustments).
Receipt of reports as proof of claim receipt. This makes it easier to track the status of claims.
Faster transaction time for claims submitted electronically. An EDI claim averages about 24 to 48 hours from the time it is sent to the time it is received. This enables providers to easily track their claims.
Validation of data elements on the claim form. By the time a claim is successfully received electronically, information needed for processing is present. This reduces the chance of data entry errors that may occur with the use of paper claim forms.
Quicker claim completion. Claims that do not need additional investigation are generally processed quicker. Reports have shown that a large percentage of EDI claims are processed within 10 to 15 days of their receipt.

The MediRoutes application helps Non Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) providers provide a quality experience to their clients at an affordable cost to their business. In addition to this, clients have mentioned the following:

1. Using the MediRoutes application and security overlays assists clients in being HIPPA compliant by taking a paper driven business and converting it to a paperless environment, from point of service all the way through to billing.

2. Using MediRoutes solutions can help prevent potential fraud. Providers can document the date and time of service by time & GPS location of all services at the point of care. And MediRoutes takes that documentation a step further by capturing the patients signature electronically right at the time of service. Medicare fraud and abuse is a problem everywhere and MediRoutes offers a solution to providers and payers.

3. MediRoutes reduced one customers AR aging from over 45 days to less than 21 days through creating faster and better documented billing, using the applications software. Instead of taking 30 days from the time of service using a paper system, clients are able to properly invoice the next day.

4. Using MediRoutes has helped increased employee morale for both drivers and office workers by providing a more relaxed and in control, less stressful work environment.

New York (PRWEB) June 11, 2012

Hostway Corporation, a leading provider of cloud, managed and hybrid cloud services, today released a video featuring experts from Gartner and Microsoft offering information and advice on moving big data and mission-critical applications to the cloud. Simultaneously, Hostway announced the availability of SQL Server 2012 for the hosts Windows managed hosting plans and cloud servers. The 2012 edition adds flexible deployment options across on-premise, private and public environments.

These announcements come as Hostway prepares to discuss the trend of moving big data, mission-critical and database-intensive applications to virtual environments at the Cloud Expo in New York City. Hostway discusses these trends and its explosive cloud growth in detail in a video featuring Lydia Leong, Research VP from Gartner, Aaron Hollobaugh, VP of Marketing from Hostway, Chris Samson, Senior Hosting Technology Specialist from Microsoft and Leen Kashyap, Strategy Manager – Cloud Infrastructure from Microsoft.

The video examines the evolution of the cloud from a development and testing environment to a flexible and scalable platform for mission-critical applications and data storage. Experts from each company discuss the importance of building a strong virtual infrastructure and best practices for migrating mission-critical and database-intensive applications to virtual platforms.

SMBs, Cloud Growth, and Big Data

Over the past several years, Hostway has built cloud platforms that support over 600,000 direct customers and over 2 million partnership-based customers. The growth is directly tied to Hostways ability to provide enterprise-class technologies and services at a price point that allows SMBs to take advantage of technologies typically reserved for large organizations.

We provide services to companies of all sizes, but we particularly target our solutions to support the enterprise needs of fast-growth SMBs, noted John Martis, Hostway President. We want to stay on the pulse of innovation and our customers are how we accomplish that. We provide access to enterprise technologies to support their fast growth and in turn, we learn from them and share in their success.

BidAbode, a fast-growth online real estate auction website, chose Hostways hybrid cloud solution to support its growth. BidAbodes reliance on a virtual environment to support its mission-critical and database-intensive applications is an example of an innovative SMB trusting a redundant, instantly scalable public cloud to support its often unpredictable infrastructure needs.

As a startup, we hoped to grow quickly, and we are excited to be experiencing that growth, said BidAbode CTO Jared Gallardo. Hostways hybrid cloud hosting has provided the scalable infrastructure we need to support our real-time, resource-intensive auctions.

Hostway traditional managed hosting customers are migrating to cloud hosting due to the cost savings and business benefits, namely flexibility and scalability, over purchasing and maintaining stand-alone dedicated servers. Microsoft has responded to this growing trend by creating features of SQL Server 2012 that directly enhance the ability to deploy databases in the cloud.

Microsoft SQL 2012 Optimized for Cloud

There are substantial upgrades added to Microsoft SQL Server 2012, most notably that its now cloud-ready, states Mike Robski, Vice President of Research & Development for Hostway. Data can be synchronized between databases via the cloud, and multiple user experiences can be powered across multiple devices.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 is available in four main editions and includes enhancements to business intelligence, availability, disaster recovery, speed, security and role management:

NSA Computer Exchange Corporation Unveils Data Protection Cloud Suite

Hicksville, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

After nearly six months in research and due diligence, Hicksville-based NSA Computer Exchange Corp. has launched its Cloud Suite solution. Cloud Suite powered by Axcient is a disaster recovery, business continuity, and monitoring solution for small- to medium-sized businesses.

The main purpose of the Cloud Suite is to protect businesses from data loss due to man-made issues (fire, theft, accidents, etc.), natural disasters (flood, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.), or server outages, and get them back on their feet in a fraction of the time of other solutions available today. NSAs focus and client commitment is providing the most user friendly, responsive, and intuitive cloud recovery system on the market. More focus was put into making sure the product could adequately protect businesses from the trials of sudden disasters.

Speaking of the new cloud computing tools, Patrick VanPutte, President of NSA Computer Exchange Corp., said that, “So many of our customers that have experienced natural disasters have suffered significant losses due to data loss. If the original hardware holding backup information is unavailable or damaged, this means weeks of waiting for data recovery. Catastrophic data loss is the demise of many companies — most never recover or reopen. I often talk to CEOs and business owners that are constantly worried about protecting their data. NSA has installed systems that help our customers sleep better at night.

NSAs Cloud Suite takes virtual images of client servers, operating systems, applications, and other vital company data, and caches it into an onsite appliance, which sends encrypted images to the cloud. Whether the main physical server is down or not, NSAs Cloud Suite solution can give a company access to its data within minutes. NSAs Cloud Suite gives businesses the tools they need to back up, monitor and access their data quickly and easily.

Providing clients with complete data protection in a simple web interface, no matter what the situation, is the main benefit of using the new NSA Computer Exchange cloud computing system. Cloud Suite mitigates risks that come with doing business in the digital age. “Even when a server is down, there will be no downtime for the business, as it is running from the cloud suite,” VanPutte said. “With just a simple click, the NSA Cloud Suite solution lets you restore lost data in minutes, not days, weeks or even months like other solutions. This clearly minimizes risks and hazard costs.”

About NSA Computer Exchange Corp.:

NSA Computer Exchange has been in the business of solving problems and providing solutions for wholesale distributors across the country since 1984. Neil Smilowitz, founder and Pat VanPutte, President and CEO continue to lead NSA today by providing innovative and personable solutions to businesses from coast to coast. Change, whether internal or external, is inevitable. With technology, the velocity of change is ever increasing. Business today does not stand still. Businesses that make proactive decisions instead of reacting to undesirable circumstances usually take the lead. Let NSA’s knowledge and expertise help you take the lead. For more information, visit
