A Guide to the Value of Reliable Data in Insurance Summary

Building the Case for Business Intelligence ROI Summary
The recent economic conditions have significantly impacted the budgets of most every business in the world. Even those that are thriving are more conservative about spending for fear of deeper and extended recession over the coming months and years. This has made it more difficult than ever to gain funding for business intelligence (BI) initiatives. For these initiatives to garner their fair share of the limited funding available in this economy, it is important to build a case that documents how investing in BI addresses not only the common fears created by this downturn but also how it is critical to capitalize on the (hopefully) inevitable recovery. This paper describes 6 tactics to strengthen the case for BI investment in this environment.

From SOA To SaaS: How SaaS is Driving New Opportunities in Application and Data Integration Summary
Shrinking IT budgets in the recessionary economy will make the software-as-aservice model a more viable alternative than the traditional license model for new software investments, which will in turn offer new opportunities for integration software vendors that should far exceed the integration opportunities offered by service-oriented architecture. Worldwide, SaaS in the four largest application sectors — customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, collaboration and content management, and human capital management — is expected to grow more than 27% this year to $7.9bn, and grow over 25% next year to $9.9bn, according to research by The 451 Group’s Tier1 Research subsidiary. The US market will account for nearly two-thirds of that spending, although Asia-Pacific will be the fastest-growing region.
