We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.

Smartphones, smart cities, smart homes, smart cars—IoT has triggered a data explosion, and not every enterprise is prepared to handle it.

In today’s environment, business continuity is a necessity. As organizations embrace digital transformation and turn to IT for almost all most critical operations, downtime can be crippling. Those that are able to tolerate technology failures transparently—so the business remains up and running— can drive dramatic gains in competitive advantage, customer engagement and business innovation. However, achieving the highest levels of business continuity, with zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs), has been possible only for the largest companies and their most business-critical applications. The associated costs and complexity have simply been too much for most organizations to achieve those levels. That is no longer the case. This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked thi

For most enterprises, 60 to 73 percent of enterprise data goes unused for business-intelligence (BI) and analytics efforts, according to Forrester.1 Data that is out of sight or out of date creates a competitive blind spot for businesses today. With customer demands, economic changes, and new trends and technologies evolving at a dizzying pace, staying relevant — not to mention competitive — requires that businesses access all available BI to be ?exible and agile. Businesses must have quick access to data that is comprehensive, accurate, current, and consumable in real time. A traditional infrastructure, where the online analytical processing (OLAP) platform and the online transaction processing (OLTP) platform are separate, makes ?exibility and agility difficult to achieve. When a business has accurate, current data in hand, it can make real-time data-driven business decisions so that it can stay relevant and competitive, or even be a disruptor in its industry.

Adobe named a Leader in Forrester's DXP report (Forrester Wave™: Digital Experience Platforms, Q2 2019) Why audience should care: To keep pace with increasing customer expectations and drive business growth, you need to manage your customers' experiences from beginning to end. You need real-time customer insights, connected to solutions that deliver those experiences immediately. And just as important as technology are the people and processes you put in place. Supporting concepts: This is significant, because in the first version of this report in 2015 Adobe was the only (albeit just barely) leader. In the second version in 2017, Adobe has been demoted and Oracle was a leader. Our advancements with Adobe Experience Platform have certainly had a significant impact on our positioning this year. One of the key points highlighted for Adobe being a leader is the focus on enterprise-scale dynamic customer profiles and event-based integration and workflow. Adobe continues to expa

We’ve heard it before. A data warehouse is a place for formally-structured, highly-curated data, accommodating recurring business analyses, whereas data lakes are places for “raw” data, serving analytic workloads, experimental in nature. Since both conventional and experimental analysis is important in this data-driven era, we’re left with separate repositories, siloed data, and bifurcated skill sets. Or are we? In fact, less structured data can go into your warehouse, and since today’s data warehouses can leverage the same distributed file systems and cloud storage layers that host data lakes, the warehouse/lake distinction’s very premise is rapidly diminishing. In reality, business drivers and business outcomes demand that we abandon the false dichotomy and unify our data, our governance, our analysis, and our technology teams. Want to get this right?
