For decades, large companies have been wary of corporate venturing. So why are more and more smart companies going VC to find their next breakthroughs? With corporate R&D units under pressure to focus on a narrow range of projects, companies often lack a good way to sniff out competitive threats beyond their main areas of expertise. A corporate venture capital fund for investing in outside startups can help a company see, understand, and respond rapidly to changes in the business landscape.

The use of analytics will define the successful midmarket business of the next decade, just as it will define the successful larger organization in this information age. The past decade has seen rapid change in the business climates with an explosion of global competition and economic uncertainty. Despite this, many midmarket companies have thrived by using their size and agility as a competitive advantage. Certainly they have fewer resources than large corporations who are able to invest large sums in IT. However, small yachts can turn and adjust their course much quicker than large cruise ships. The same came be said for midmarket companies. The most successful organizations are ones that can react the quickest to changes in the market place. Midmarket companies can take advantage of their smaller size by being more agile and quicker to change, or even reinvent themselve

Business executives and managers at business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care about time, money, competitive advantage, customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much attention to the vital IT infrastructure that supports transactions and collaboration with trading partners—though that B2B backbone directly affects performance and profitability. In fact, just 26 percent of business managers view B2B integration as a competitive differentiator, according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne, a research consultancy. As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on complex, brittle and antiquated systems to exchange critical data impacts time to market, cost-efficiency and satisfaction across suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of B2B integration in recent years has moved forward in fits and starts, often undermined by competing priorities and misalignment between business and IT managers.

In the digital economy, big IT budgets, lots of brick sand mortar and an established market presence are no longer at the foundation of a competitive advantage. What matters now is the agility and speed to ensure that customer centricity is supported as an overriding priority of business operations and decision making.

The resulting digital disruption is not just occurring at the margins or within isolated pockets of industry and commerce. It’s the new normal and its consequences are far reaching. The essential question for every organization in every sector is simply: Will we be the disruptor or will we allow ourselves to be the disrupted?

Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company. If it is poorly managed, not digitized, or disconnected from critical business processes, it creates chaos. This chaos impacts your ability to deliver exceptional customer service; it slows down important processes, increases security risk, and negatively impacts revenue. Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.
