Want to catch a thief? Think like a thief. Want to stop a organized #cyberthreat ? Think like the people behind the threat. +Accenture takes a big step towards this mindset with the acquisition of FusionX.

I met +Rinus Strydom, VP Alliances at +Tradeshift  through our +HfS Research Working Summit on the As-a-Service Economy (May 12, 2015). We sat down after the summit and talk about the rapidly evolving #SaaS  & #PaaS  markets. His perspective is through a Supply Chain lens, but his thoughts on #B2B , and the roles of agility & partnerships, apply universally.

It's all about the conversation, and this one with Mike Small of +Capgemini is a great one. His thoughts on speed-to-value and his focus on client outcomes can be applied to any business by any c-suite, sales, or marketing professional.

The 'Pillars of Creation' or the 'Pillars of Destruction' (or perhaps the 'Three Fingers of God')?

An amazing update to an already iconic photo from the Eagle Nebula (M16).
