DALLAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PARTNERS User Group Conference -- Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the leading analytic data platforms, applications and services company, today announced that all profits from global sales of Teradata Applications CMO Lisa Arthur's newly published book, Big Data Marketing, will be donated to The American Red Cross through the company's Teradata CARES program.

The book was published on October 14 (see press release). Today's announcement was made by Teradata Applications President Darryl McDonald, during his keynote speech to more than 4,000 Teradata customers attending the company's annual PARTNERS conference being held in Dallas this week.

"Lisa is truly an industry thought leader, and this eye-opening book is not just for marketers and CMOs, but for C-suite senior executives, and IT leaders, too," McDonald said. "This book can help companies start the critical, must-have conversation around how data-driven strategies can benefit the entire enterprise, and how marketing is the best place to begin.  And on behalf of Teradata CARES, we are honored to direct all profits from international sales of Big Data Marketing to The American Red Cross, a longstanding Teradata customer and one of the most outstanding non-profit organizations of all time."  

In Big Data Marketing: Engage Your Customers More Effectively and Drive Value, Arthur tells the story of how The American Red Cross adopted data-driven marketing strategies to strengthen relationships with constituents, improve fundraising efforts, and speed response in times of crisis.  This and many other examples are sprinkled through the book.

"Because technology, data, and digital are so critical for how we are operating, Marketing and IT at the Red Cross really come together.  We think this is going to revolutionize how we market to and interact with the public.  If we can use data to get more donations of time, money, and blood, then the Red Cross can do more to support people in need," said Peggy Dyer, CMO, American Red Cross.   "We are honored that profits from Lisa Arthur's book Big Data Marketing will be shared with The American Red Cross," said Peggy Dyer, CMO, American Red Cross. 

In Big Data Marketing, Arthur draws on more than 30 years of technology industry marketing leadership and her current role as Chief Marketing Officer with Teradata Applications, to provide a common-sense, step-by-step and proven approach to data-driven marketing adoption.  It is a priority read for executives, marketers and others who want to tackle big data and use it to improve customer experiences, show revenue impact and demonstrate the value of their own roles.  Arthur uses non-technical language, additional downloadable resources, and a healthy dose of humor to help business leaders better understand and master the challenges and opportunities of modern big data marketing.

Readers will discover:

  • How marketers can use data to learn what they need to know;
  • How to make metrics your business "mantra;"
  • How to drive value through personalized messaging, and other proven ways to elevate customer experiences;
  • The five fundamental components of a successful data-driven marketing strategy;
  • Strategies to drive brand relevance and Return on Marketing Investment (ROMI); and,
  • Approaches to managing marketing spend, a company's largest variable expenditure.

"It's high time to tame the beast and open up the conversation about big data," Arthur urges. "As companies put off formulating plans, data continues to stream in, creating massive tangles of information, processes and applications. Today's business leaders need to confront big data head-on.  Yet to do so, they must first have a clear view of the task ahead of them.  If you're ready to move your business forward, and bypass all the sensationalism and hype, Big Data Marketing is for you.  Let's start the conversation."

Big Data Marketing: Engage Your Customers More Effectively and Drive Value (WILEY; Hardcover & e-book; $30.00(US); ISBN: 978-1-118-73389-9) is available worldwide via  Amazon.com, or through Barnes & Noble, Bookshout, 800CEORead, BAM!, or wherever books and e-books are sold.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
