A new model is emerging in the sales landscape. The entire
process looks vastly different than it did just a few years
ago. Although that’s due in part to constantly evolving tools

what catapults a successful seller into rock-star seller status.
While this shift brings new possibilities, every stage of
the selling process is also rife with new challenges. Greater
access means more noise. Countless resources make it
difficult to bring real value. These are just a few of the

Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets. But, in today’s complex data environment exists a near paradox between these expectations, that companies will be able to rapidly deliver value using data and analytics--and the complexities of the data landscape, making it more difficult to find, govern, connect to and access the data needed to deliver that value.
Once thing is clear: if management expectation is to be met, simplifying connectivity is a must.In this white paper, veteran analyst Mike Ferguson, Managing Director of Intelligent Business Strategies explores how simplifying data access –connectivity –aligns expectations with data realities thus decreasing time to value.
Major retailers and mass merchandisers are turning up the pressure on their trading partners and even other retailers to implement Global Data Synchronization (GDS) within their organizations.

Advanced evasions will break the security protection model that most organizations are using today. Given this changing threat landscape we need to rethink traditional security models. Here’s advice on how to evade AETs.
In this white paper, we recap notable trends and events in information security from 2014 and look forward to what information security professionals should expect in 2015. The past year was a landmark one in the information security field, with massive data breaches capturing the public’s attention, powerful bugs causing headaches for IT teams and end users, DDoS attacks breaking records, and phishing remaining a general annoyance – or worse – for all Internet users. In this whitepaper, we discuss these trends as well as key areas of concern for 2015, including:
- The impact of the Internet of Things
- The growing importance of threat intelligence
- The increasing influence of BRICS nations
- The evolution of encryption standards
- The changing role of the CISO
In this white paper, we examine notable trends and events in physical security from 2014 and assess what security professionals should expect in 2015. 2014 was truly an unpredictable year in the physical security and executive
protection worlds, as large scale events targeted for disruption were executed relatively smoothly, while unforeseen developments in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak caught many off guard.
Looking ahead to 2015, we predict that local issues will continue to gain global importance, threat actors and activists will find new ways to utilize social media to spread their messages, and the lines between physical and digital threats will continue to converge. We also highlight ongoing developments in France,
Mexico, Ukraine, and Germany.

If the goal of an intelligence-led security strategy is to help organizations be more proactive in finding and preparing for threats to physical and digital assets, it’s crucial to define and understand exactly what threat intelligence means, and separate fact from fiction. In this whitepaper, we dispel some common myths about threat intelligence.
