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.

The healthcare payer ecosystem in the United States has changed dramatically over the last decade and is expected to evolve at an even faster pace over the next few years. Many world-class companies involved in healthcare payment processing are finding themselves constrained by their existing information technology infrastructure. The silos that they built around business-to-business (B2B) processing are constraining them, making it difficult to achieve governmental mandates and (more importantly) increase processing efficiency and competitive advantage. Gone are the days of a small set of data following static and simple standards traded between a limited set of organizations. Gone are the days where the rules for when data is valid versus invalid can expressed in a paragraph or two. Gone are the days when information about a healthcare payment was almost entirely about the "who," "when," and "how much."

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. And most have a predefined path of analysis that gives users very little creative freedom to explore new lines of thought. To maintain competitive advantage, your BI solution should allow business users to quickly and easily investigate and interrogate the data to find out why something happened to uncover the root cause behind the what.

Businesses face greater uncertainty than ever. Market conditions, customer desires, competitive landscapes, and regulatory constraints change by the minute. So business success is increasingly contingent on predictive intelligence and hyperagile responsiveness to relentlessly evolving demands. This uncertainty has significant implications for the data center especially as business becomes pervasively digital. IT has to support business agility by being more agile itself.

IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.

The data-driven organization is the new benchmark for success. Firms that harness data to dictate strategic and tactical decisions companywide make more informed business plans, better optimize operations, improve customer interactions, and provide competitive edge. To achieve these benefits, organizations increasingly see data refinement - transforming raw data from various sources into relevant and actionable information and delivering it through self - service access to any user who needs it - as the path toward success by helping break though immature processes and legacy systems. However, data refinement only functions as well as the strategies and approaches behind it. Organizations that do not understand the right way to embrace refinement will fail to catch up to competitors that have mastered the correct approach.
