Corporate computers and information and communications systems (collectively, “electronic resources”) remain the workhorse for most businesses, even as alternatives, such as third-party text messaging services, external social media, and cloud computing, flourish.

Virtualization and cloud computing can help corporate IT meet these demands by bringing more flexibility and agility to the environment. But the ultimate solution is to transform the way IT is delivered. Indeed, many enterprises have already started on the journey toward the IT as a service (ITaaS) model.
We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time.
Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now.
