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.

Secure, efficient communication between doctors and staff is key to reliable patient care. For Groves Community Hospice, every situation involving patients requires rapid response; this poses a particular challenge, as more than 80 percent of the hospice staff work in the field. With so many doctors and staff off-site or on-call, and considering the inherent urgency of hospice care, Groves needed to streamline staff communications and enable a better way for physicians and staff to connect and discuss critical patient issues within a secure environment.

Today's business environment is extraordinarily competitive. No company, no matter its size or what industry it is in is safe from disruption. It is easier than ever for new entrants to come into a market, turning entire industries upside down. Unless organizations can nimbly innovate at the speed of their competition, they will be left behind, and large organizations with calcified processes and structures will be hit the hardest.

Within 6 months of starting to use Okta, customers on average will connect more than 10 applications for single sign-on. Once single-sign-on is tackled, cloud-first IT organizations can start to tackle the next set of problems. These next challenges are all about how you manage identities across all connected systems, how to determine who has access to what, and how you maintain control over user access. Some of the largest organizations in the world spend millions of dollars building out complex workflow systems to manage these processes. Even then, they depend heavily on manual work to actually get the job done. With Okta, there is a better way to do this, and it’s accessible to organizations of all sizes.

In recent years, the legal marketplace has seen an influx of new start-ups and new entrants looking to challenge the long-standing service model offered by law firms to their clients. Traditionally, clients looked to their law firms to provide a full range of legal and legal-related services, i.e., to handle every aspect of a matter, even including those activities that did not involve the direct provision of legal services. Today, by contrast, consumers of legal services find themselves the beneficiaries of a new and growing number of nontraditional service providers that are changing the way legal work is getting done. These alternative providers comprise a new sector of the legal market, one that is emerging and evolving rapidly, but is still very much in its infancy.

Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.

About 10 years ago big data was quickly becoming the next big thing. It surged in popularity, swooning into the tech world's collective consciousness and spawning endless start-ups, thought pieces, and investment funding, and big data's rise in the startup world does not seem to be slowing down. But something's been happening lately: big data projects have been failing, or have been sitting on a shelf somewhere and not delivering on their promises. Why? To answer this question, we need to look at big data's defining characteristic - or make that characteristics, plural - or what is commonly known as 'the 3Vs": volume, variety and velocity.

Banks are at an inflection point. According to recent research by Viacom, 53% of consumers don’t think their bank offers anything different than other banks, 71% would rather go to the dentist than listen to what the banks are saying, and 1 in every 3 are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. This means banking institutions need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360-degree view of the customer can directly impact customer experience by helping banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high-margin products, and provide compelling interactions.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the next 12 to 18 months.

The all-encompassing data center is a thing of the past. Modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as cloud solutions such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS). There’s more critical data to back up than ever before. Plus, data silos and fragmented management mean poor visibility, which can make it difficult to comply with regional data residency and security rules as well as service-level agreements (SLAs). On-premises data protection has not kept pace. According to a survey by Fujitsu, 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data protection inefficiency within the last year.1 Often, this is because on-premises backups are cumbersome and do not always happen on time.

We’re living through a time where people, organizations and societies not only rely but thrive upon secure, simple and fast access to information. From small businesses, startups, enterprises and global conglomerates across all verticals; to local, state and federal governments; to educational institutions and nonprofits, we are continuously investing in our employees, devices, applications, networks and infrastructure that enable us to drive our collective missions forward. Ten years ago, business and technology leaders catalyzed a cloud app revolution that has changed the way organizations manage IT. However, through this transformative shift, the core requirements of IT remain the same. Technology leaders are responsible for ensuring that 1) information assets remain confidential and protected, 2) information systems are available and operational, and 3) people are empowered and productive with the apps and information they need.

All of cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure is vulnerable to a wide range of risk and exposure from both physical and cyber threats and perils. Sophisticated cyber individuals and groups exploit standalone and congregated vulnerabilities to steal money and information, or disrupt, endanger and damage operations. The combination of wide opportunity for crime in cyberspace and the ability to execute from geographically-dispersed locations has produced a transformation of traditional criminal activities.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better. In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before. Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.
