And don't forget to deliver these compelling and engaging experiences while adhering to all your established information governance policies and standards, OK?

No wonder why so many customer experience objectives fall flat — and why companies like OpenText are creating new solutions for delivering relevant, interactive experiences on screens of all sizes.

If it has been abundantly clear for quite some time that IBM is facing a number of significant challenges, it is also clear that Virginia Rometty is a woman that is able to face them. She’s never been one to bandy words, and her message to investors in this year’s annual report is no different. Going forward, IBM will be focusing on data, the cloud and “systems of engagement”. 

Usually, the annual report of any major corporation shares at least two of the qualities of drying paint: it takes a long time and it's not very interesting.

SAP HANA: The One Thing that Does Everything for Everyone?

HANA goes to the cloud, breaks a database record, cures diseases and pokes fun at … Ok, slight exaggeration. But, truth be told, we could add more to it.
