Four prominent business leaders discuss their challenges and successes in shifting to this shared business model.

Reducing costs is still a primary reason companies turn to Software as a Service (SaaS). But those at the front of the pack, like cloud leaders in general, are discovering how SaaS can help them achieve a much broader and more strategic goal—unlocking competitive advantage. These cloud leaders, called Pacesetters, are finding the reduced TCO is only the beginning of advantages offered by SaaS. Read this paper to learn how and why reducing TCO is just the beginning of the benefits offered by SaaS.

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 that’s 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.

There is often a great deal of confusion in determining whether an object database management system (ODBMS) is right for you. Most of this confusion can be resolved by focusing on your application's requirements. In those situations where the application requires the very clear advantages of an ODBMS, choosing which ODBMS becomes a continuation of the exercise of analyzing those application requirements.

The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years. JP Morgan Chase has more software developers than Google and more technologists than Microsoft. If you think your company isn’t in the software business, you’re wrong. Airlines, oil companies, telecommunications providers all are using applications to attract customers and gain a competitive advantage.

Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance. But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock. If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects.

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets. What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

The term “perfect storm” is used to describe when several forces come together and create a large, single event that has transformative effects. A technology perfect storm took place in the 1990s when Internet services, low-cost home computers, browsers and affordable broadband all came together and created the Internet revolution. This revolution launched an entirely new economic model that sparked new ways of doing business, changed the way we work, and allowed us to blend our personal and professional lives. At first, these new ways of working were the exception. But the transformation to an Internet-based work style is now complete, and this style has become very much the norm. Businesses that embraced the Internet in its early days gained a significant advantage over their competitors; those that did not became irrelevant very quickly.

Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage. Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to deliver solutions at a much faster pace. As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio. It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking, and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.
