To meet the business imperative for enterprise integration and stay competitive, companies must manage the increasing variety, volume and velocity of new data pouring into their systems from an ever-expanding number of sources. They need to bring all their corporate data together, deliver it to end users as quickly as possible to maximize its value, and integrate it at a more granular level than ever before—focusing on the individual transaction level, rather than on general summary data. As data volumes continue to explode, clients must take advantage of a fully scalable information integration architecture that supports any type of data integration technique such as ETL, ELT (also known as ETL Pushdown), data replication or data virtualization. Read this new whitepaper to learn about the seven essential elements needed to achieve the highest performance.

For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.

With new technologies, new opportunities often emerge, especially in business. The advent of innovations, such as social media and mobile devices, is changing the ways businesses interact with customers and the ways in which customers desire to be engaged. Opportunities arising from the benefits of salesforce automation, business intelligence (BI), and customer relationship management (CRM) applications are providing new levels of insight, helping businesses acquire customers more efficiently and retain those customers longer. As a direct result, organizations that invest in better understanding potential customers are likely to see higher returns than those organizations that possess a more limited understanding of their customer base. Seeking the competitive advantage resulting from improved customer focus, IT organizations have increased investment in business intelligence and analytics and the underlying infrastructure to support those applications.

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. But the parent company’s processes tend to bog down these funds.
