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.

With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential.

Single Sign-On and provisioning solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.

Banks today are continuously challenged to meet rigorous regulatory requirements. They must implement strict governance programs that enable them to comply with a wide variety of regulations stemming from the financial crisis that began in 2007, including the DoddFrank Act, Basel Committee on Banking Supervision regulations, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) and the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID2). Many of these new regulations are spurring banks to rethink how data from across the enterprise flows into the aggregated risk and capital reports required by regulatory agencies. Data must be complete, correct and consistent to maintain confidence in risk reports, capital reports and analytical analyses. At the same time, banks need ways to monetize, grant access to and generate insight from data

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

Companies are in a race to set themselves apart from the competition in a meaningful way. Pre-Internet and pre-cloud, beating the competition meant out-advertising them, out-spending them, out-maneuvering them, or getting to a certain demographic before they did. Today – it means using data to connect with the customer on a meaningful level. Connection breeds loyalty, which breeds recurring revenue. A huge marketing or advertising budget won’t help you much if you’re not able to connect with your customer IN THE MOMENT – to capitalize on what the customer is doing right now.

Sometimes a perfect storm comes together to signal a radical shift or rebirth of an industry. But it’s not enough to say public relations is in flux or rapidly changing. It’s more impactful to discuss the evolution of the change, understand the potential gaps, and be early to capitalize on opportunities created by these gaps. The path for change in the PR industry has been tumultuous. And understandably so. The irrationality of basing performance on vanity metrics is so ingrained in the profession that the left-brain, rational piece has been pushed aside. This has created a culture of estimating based on vanity metrics like AVE (ad value equivalency), leading to a dynamic where the C-suite craves that WSJ or TechCrunch story, yet doesn’t believe PR’s reporting on the value of that coverage. When everyone in the marketing stack is crunching numbers and showing real, tangible value, PR is holding onto air. Why keep setting the profession up for failure by perpetuating the cycle of abstr

"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public. Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances. While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack. So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing. Download this Financial Services Best Practices Guide to Isolation to learn how to best eliminate phishing attacks and web malware. "

As the number of disruptors in the space rises, many banks are being asked to innovate while lowering structural costs and improving capital returns — and many traditional banks are falling behind.

Machine learning is proving its power across virtually every industry in ways that add actionable insight and efficiency. But one can look at the rise of this transformative paradigm with a more focused lens to see AI technologies as a business tool of the highest order, one that improves processes and inspires new models. AI, in other words, has a big role to play on the balance sheet. Two leading brands in very different spaces — Capital One in financial services, John Deere in agriculture — are seeing efforts that stretch back decades come to fruition with the launch of cloud-based AI platforms. Capital One is developing digital products and experiences using machine learning to help millions of customers with their financial lives; John Deere’s Precision Agriculture solution helps farmers gain precise information about their machines and crops. In both instances, AI and a cloud platform combine to enable transformation.

Since SAP introduced its in-memory database, SAP HANA, customers have significantly accelerated everything from their core business operations to big data analytics. But capitalizing on SAP HANA’s full potential requires computational power and memory capacity beyond the capabilities of many existing data center platforms. To ensure that deployments in the AWS Cloud could meet the most stringent SAP HANA demands, AWS collaborated with SAP and Intel to deliver the Amazon EC2 X1 and X1e instances, part of the Amazon EC2 Memory-Optimized instance family. With four Intel® Xeon® E7 8880 v3 processors (which can power 128 virtual CPUs), X1 offers more memory than any other SAP-certified cloud native instance available today.
