Applications o the 90s: this was all about getting manual processes automated for standard business processes Applications to Survive: the notion here is that the CxO is concerned about the customer – how to find them, close them, and keep them. Knowledge about the customer and how the companies actions and competitive actions will impact the customer are key to survival. Operational Efficiencies are also still extremely crucial for bottom line impact. Automation of media asset production or the automation of on-line selling and buying is critical to the ability of the organization to control costs.
This growth shows the explosive growth of data volumes. GartnerGroup, (not included in this graphic), forecasts that between 1999 and 2004, the amount of data companies store will increase 30 fold.
9 In order to move to this second phase of data processing, companies need to bring under control the data that is currently unmanaged. This includes the list that you see in front of you on the slide. Every company has a tremendous number of documents that are stored in paper form. On laptops you may have a gigabyte or more of spreadsheets, presentations, word processing files and email in file systems which are extremely difficult to search because they are not under data management control. Analysts tell us that only about 15% of the worlds data is in a database, the rest is unmanaged.
Why will NewCo and by extension be successful in this market? Because we have the technology, culture, installed base and professional staffing to fully resource and leverage the market opportunity. This slide lists are unique differentiators and should stress the value our openness, vision and partner centric culture will add to our joint success.
