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 partnersthough 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.

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

But if you cant explain how you got the answer, or what it means, its no good. Most self-service BI solutions can only display what has already happened, through reports or dashboards.

Today, data is constantly flowing in and out of organizations from electrical and mechanical sensors, RFID tags, smart meters, scanners, mobile devices, vehicles, live social media, machines and other objects. Did you know that a modern plane with more than 10,000 sensors just in the wings is expected to generate more than 7 terabytes a day? And Bain predicts that by 2020 annual revenues could exceed $470 billion for the internet of things (IoT) vendors selling hardware, software and comprehensive solutions. Analysts believe that all of this data will drive a new type of industrial revolution one thats driven by highly accurate, real-time analysis, alerts and actions. Increasingly, machines will automate decisions and simply notify humans with instructions. Consider the promise of the IoT, where any object can be connected to the internet and continuously send and receive data. Gartner says that by 2020, 21 billion IoT devices will be in use worldwide.
