Qualtrics iQ Brings Predictive Intelligence to CX Masses

E-mail Print PDF

Qualtrics reveals its predictive intelligence and machine learning service-- Qualtrics iQ, an IBM Watson-style cloud-based service capable of deep statistical analysis and predictive recommendations.

Qualtrics iQiQ is available to individual CX (customer experience) practitioners, and designed for non-technical line-of-business users. As such it eliminates time-consuming, manual data processes, and does not require tasks such as sorting through open text feedback, complex statistical analyses and identifying key drivers deep in data. The UI is drag and drop, making advanced features easy to use, even for new users.

The platform consists of 3 components-- Text iQ (uses natural language processing and machine learning to analyse open text feedback and surface trends in data), Driver iQ (identifies key experience drivers deep in data) and Stats iQ (provides automated and instant data analyses, with no need to for data exporting or massaging).

IDC: Branch Requirements Boost SD-WAN Market

E-mail Print PDF

According to IDC software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) represent a major opportunity, with the global market set to grow at a CAGR of 69.6% and reach $8.5 billion in 2021.

sd-wanSD-WAN leverages hybrid WAN, and adds a centralised, application-based policy controller, analytics for application and network visibility, a secure software overlay (abstracts underlying networks) and an optional SD-WAN forwarder (routing capability). It allows for cost-effective application delivery, meeting the needs of modern branch/remote sites, optimising software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud-based services, and improving branch-IT efficiency through automation.

The "most significant" SD-WAN driver for the 5-year forecast period is digital transformation (DX), or the deployment of 3rd platform technologies such as cloud, big data, mobility and social business. DX increases network workloads and elevates the end-to-end importance of networks to business operations. The increased use of public cloud-based SaaS applications is another growth driver, since SD-WAN is increasingly leveraged to provide dynamic connectivity optimisation and path selection in a policy-driven, centrally distributed network architecture.

Cohesity does not take long with updates-- following the April 2017 launch of Orion 4.0 hyperconverged secondary storage solution the startup announces version 5.0.

Orion graphicOrion is described as the first storage solution to combine end-to-end data protection and big data storage with distributed, "infinitely scalable" architecture. The platform spans on-premises and private and public clouds, with control from a single location, and the 5.0 update adds workload backup capability, as well as a searchable archive for large amounts of both structured and unstructured data.

The fully indexed and searchable platform gives admins better access and greater insight into data, and elminates redundant copies. Data is rendered accessible to any application and user via standard protocols, including NFS, CIFS/SMB and S3, driving more efficient data and infrastructure re-use across data protection, archive, content repositories, test/dev and analytic workloads.
