Renaissance in the Enterprise Calls for Proven Features
November 20, 2012
A general partner at venture capitalist firm Andreessen Horowitz stated the obvious at a recent conference: there are a lot of changes going on in the enterprise. Enough changes, says Andreessen Horowitz partner Peter Levine, that it could be considered a renaissance and an entirely new generation of creativity in the enterprise. According to the article “Andreessen Horowitz General Partner Peter Levine: There’s an Enterprise Renaissance Going On” on TechCrunch, Levine is comparing the enterprise renaissance to that that occurred in the city states of Italy.
The article states:
“[...]Levine said, there is lots of proof that the renaissance is underway — well illustrated in the shift from the personal computer to mobile. The infrastructure has to change in this shift; the applications will have to be built natively to the mobile device. Services out of the back-end will need to be secured. The devices are getting more powerful and will have to integrate with distributed infrastructures around the world. Data platforms are just emerging. The development is just starting.”
The changes and the Big Data renaissance call for new ways of dealing with and addressing data. We recommend Intrafind, which offers some renaissance features that are tried and true due to their maturity in the enterprise search market. We look forward to the changes in the new age and believe businesses should prepare with the right tools to help them learn and collaborate in the emerging market.
