Autodesk consolidates Excel files for better revenue management

Autodesk had a data visualization system for their revenue that they struggled to support with Excel – and juggling dispersed files didn’t help.

With the added stress of corrupted files and overworked staff, the design software company knew they needed to change their planning strategy.

Join Nick Hanson and J.R. Matheson of Autodesk. Learn how they were able to:

  • Integrate all Excel files into one place
  • Forecast at very specific, granular levels
  • Improve quota and territory planning
  • And more

  • How to optimize storage for your SQL Server database infrastructure

    Latency and IOPS are key performance indicators for databases – meaning, then, that storage hardware has a major impact on database performance.
    This e-book guides you through the process of using flash storage to optimize your SQL Server database infrastructure.
    Find out how a flash array can support all of the new SQL Server 2014 features, including:
    • in‐memory databases
    • BPE on SSDs
    • Eight‐replica‐node AlwaysOn Availability Groups
    • And more
    Download your copy of this e-book today to discover the factors that impact the performance of your storage infrastructure so you can tune your databases for optimal performance.

  • Storage Capacity 101 to Post-Grad in a Flash

    In this report from Quocirca, analyst Clive Longbottom explains why you don’t always get what you think you’re getting with flash storage.

    Data is made up from bits of information – 8 bits to a byte (4 to a nibble, for those who care). Kilobytes, Megabytes, Gigabytes, Terabytes and Petabytes all used to be based on the ‘power of 2’ system, so 1kB was 1,024 bytes (2 to the power 10), but has now come in line with standard metric notation, and is now 1,000 bytes.

    This immediately affects storage for anyone who was brought up on the power of 2 notation. As 1MB would be 1024 bytes squared (1,048,576 bytes), 1GB 1024 cubed, and 1TB 1024 to the power 4, we start to see how the quoted storage of a disk is less than many of us expect. It may only lead to a 1% error at the kilobyte level, but it’s getting close to 10% at the terabyte level; that is capacity that many think they are getting that they are not. To this end, the IEC has renamed old-style units as kibibytes (KiB), mebibytes (MiB) and gibibytes (GiB).

    But, as with all-flash storage, you get to use much more of your available capacity than with a disk-based solution.
