BIG DATA: The Answer to Agile - Greenplum Product Announcement

You'll see for yourself why Big Data is the answer to Agile. The era of Big Data is here. Leading organizations know that if they are going to tap into the business value of their Big Data, they must quickly evolve beyond business intelligence and put data analysis at the core of every business activity. Unfortunately, many companies take a fragmented approach to Big Data Analytics; patching together disparate solutions in an attempt to manage and analyze ever-growing volumes of structured and unstructured data. Join us to find out why adopting a unified approach to Big Data Analytics is the only way to achieve an agile business.

SANTA ANA, Calif., November 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today released negative equity data showing that 10.7 million, or 22.1 percent, of all residential properties with a mortgage were in negative equity at the end of the third quarter of 2011.


This is down slightly from 10.9 million properties, or 22.5 percent, in the second quarter. An additional 2.4 million borrowers had less than 5 percent equity, referred to as near-negative equity, in the third quarter. Together, negative equity and near-negative equity mortgages accounted for 27.1 percent of all residential properties with a mortgage nationwide in the third quarter, down from 27.5 in the previous quarter. Negative equity, often referred to as “underwater” or “upside-down,” is the condition in which borrowers owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth.

Is "Command and Collaborate" the New Leadership Model? - Herminia Ibarra. By Herminia Ibarra | 3:02 PM February 3, 2012 The theme at Davos this year was “The Great Transformation: Shaping New Models.”

Is "Command and Collaborate" the New Leadership Model? - Herminia Ibarra

One of the models up for discussion was leadership. Panels with titles like “Leading Under Pressure” and “New Leadership Models from China” abounded. While speaking at a private dinner hosted by PwC on the topic of leadership and values in a volatile world, the questions put to me were, “What leadership traits will be paramount in the future?” And “What are the new expectations the public has for business leaders?” On reflection, it struck me that the conversation this year was very different than in years past. On the opening morning at Davos, I attended a session entitled, “The New Context for Leadership.” A similar idea was advanced at the Women Leader’s dinner on Friday night. Since the 2008 economic crisis, two very different “rhetorics” about leadership have coexisted. Now it seems that we have settled on a solution — not “either/or,” but “yes/and.”

About - Pomona College. In the desert landscape that was inland Southern California in 1887, it took audacity to imagine "a college in a garden.

About - Pomona College

" Yet far from the ivied halls of the Northeast, Pomona's founders envisioned "a college of the New England type," with small classes, close relationships between students and faculty, and a green jewel of a campus. From that beginning, Pomona has grown to be one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges. Located in Claremont, Calif., on a campus where ivy and palm trees coexist under habitually sunny skies, Pomona offers an environment for intellectual development and personal growth that is second to none. Today, Pomona offers its approximately 1,600 students--evenly divided between men and women--a comprehensive curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.

With a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1, students have the opportunity to work closely and collaboratively with professors who are also top scholars in their fields. Nelson Speaker Series.
