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.

Corporate data spreads across an ever-growing number of applications. Users (employees, contractors, partners, and customers) access those applications over a wide range of devices. Those devices take different forms: desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smartwatches. Each device may use a different operating system.
