Recent Strategic Thinking Profiles

Posted on January 5th, by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Recent Strategic Thinking Profiles

If you don’t subscribe to my newsletter updates, you may have missed the recent Strategic Thinking profiles which were published by THINKstrategies over the last few months. Here’s a quick list with links to where you can find the profiles posted:

  • Attivo: The explosive growth of data, which is very often core to the value of today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Cloud-based applications, is becoming an increasingly difficult issue for SaaS/Cloud vendors to economically manage to meet the escalating needs of their customers. This profile details how Attivio’s UIA platform has become increasingly attractive to SaaS/Cloud vendors seeking to keep pace with users’ escalating data access requirements.
  • Dell-Boomi: As Cloud-based, SaaS business applications become more popular, the demand for more powerful, yet easy-to-use, integration solutions is also growing. Today’s integration solutions must not only tie together a rapidly expanding array of SaaS apps, but also pull them together with legacy applications, systems and data sources. This profile examines how Dell-Boomi’s latest features respond to rising corporate demands and customer expectations.
  • Informatica Cloud: The proliferation of Cloud-based, SaaS business applications have created a growing challenge for organizations of all sizes trying to tie them together with their legacy applications, systems and data sources. Compounding the data integration challenge is the need to ensure the quality of the data traversing today’s Cloud/SaaS applications. This profile examines how Informatica’s latest Cloud-based data integration and quality capabilities are designed to address these increasingly important issues.

I hope you find these profiles useful and welcome your suggestions regarding other companies you think we should showcase.

The data access, integration and quality management issues which these companies are attacking will be the focus of THINKstrategies’ Cloud conferences in 2012.
