Since it first started providing air passenger services in 2000, JetBlue has been
innovating. It was the first airline to embrace dot.com transactions and electronic
ticketing, and continues to churn out industry-leading inventions as described
here. When business needs changed in 2014, JetBlue embarked on very robust
digital transformation based on TIBCO integration and analytics technology—and
the company was recognized with the first-ever TIBCO Trailblazer Impact award
for the incredible effect this project was having on its strategic differentiation. In
this case study, Director of Shared Development Services Andi Azzolina describes
the objectives, initiatives, capabilities, and achievements making up JetBlue’s
journey towards becoming the most caring travel provider in the world.

" For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.
A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices,
and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.

After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an
inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a
source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls
the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine
into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’
digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require
organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external
environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new
business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational

Over the past few years, improvements in mobile devices, Wi-Fi, and
cloud computing have made mobile point of sale (POS) solutions
e ective and a ordable for businesses of all sizes.
Tablets have emerged as the most popular platform for mobile POS
solutions, and you may have already heard the buzz about them.
There’s a reason for all the hullaballoo. In addition to integrating
payments and making retail transactions more e cient than using
a traditional electronic cash register (ECR), tablet POS solutions can
provide robust management data.
A tablet POS solution makes sense for many retailers, particularly if
you’re looking to:
• replace an ECR or want to have a mobile POS in place on opening day
• unlock new pro t-making and cost-saving opportunities
• expand your business
• keep pace with ever-changing customer expectations

The growing trend towards insourcing marketing and transactional email is being driven by businesses that are looking for ways to improve their email programs, increase data security and lower costs. When evaluating whether it makes more sense to leverage an on-premise or outsourced solution, it's important to understand how the traditional arguments have changed.
Today, mobility is no longer a trend. It’s the new reality — and it is reshaping the enterprise. Gone are the days of employees tethered to desktop computers, and they’re no longer dependent on an Ethernet or wi-fi connection to work remotely. More and more enterprise employees are conducting daily work transactions on mobile devices. Mobility surged to 1.3 billion workers in 2015, continuing a 33 percent growth trend since 2010. These mobile workers aren’t limiting themselves to a single device, either. In just the last year, the number of devices managed by enterprises grew an incredible 72 percent.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
Encryption technology has enabled much greater privacy and security for enterprises that use the Internet to communicate and transact business online. Mobile, cloud and web applications rely on well-implemented encryption mechanisms, using keys and certificates to ensure security and trust. However, businesses are not the only ones to benefit from encryption.
While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
This white paper discusses the issues involved in the traditional practice of deploying transactional and analytic applications on separate platforms using separate databases. It analyzes the results from a user survey, conducted on SAP's behalf by IDC, that explores these issues.
In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.
What if you could reduce the cost of running Oracle databases and improve database performance at the same time? What would it mean to your enterprise and your IT operations?
Oracle databases play a critical role in many enterprises. They’re the engines that drive critical online transaction (OLTP) and online analytical (OLAP) processing applications, the lifeblood of the business. These databases also create a unique challenge for IT leaders charged with improving productivity and driving new revenue opportunities while simultaneously reducing costs.
The Connected Customer is an individual who is intimately connected
to the data, outcomes, decisions, and staff associated with any
relationship to an organization. This intensely personal connection is
not just a matter of the most recent transaction, but represents a
combination of connected data, connected analytics, and collaborative
decisions associated with improving the customer’s relationship with
the organization over time.
In this report, Blue Hill explores the key traits associated with
supporting the Connected Customer through the Internet of Things,
and provides guidance on why the Internet of Things will be essential
across the general business landscape.
Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive with each other and with disruptive competitors. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes. Unfortunately, the speed and convenience that these capabilities afford is a benefit to consumers and fraudsters alike. To successfully prevent fraud while retaining the benefits of offering digital financial services, FIs must understand how fraudsters are exploiting these capabilities and fight fraud with customer experience in mind.

The biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry is among the most heavily regulated industries in the world, challenged by evolving regulations, complex compliance requirements and close regulatory scrutiny. At the same time, companies must address the market pressures of globalization, the use of predictive data analytics and digital technologies, and the industry’s ongoing consolidation. In this challenging environment, confidence in internal controls is crucial.
To ensure the integrity of transactional data, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies must have visibility into the underlying details. No industry spends more capital—literally billions of dollars—on drug research and development annually. Yet, the risk of product failure exists at every stage of the drug lifecycle process. From an accounting and reporting standpoint, companies must have proper accounting software, procedures and controls in place to manage their financial data, and realtime visibility into this informat
