The latest upgrade for BICS happened last week and, while there are no new end user features, it is now easier to integrate data. New to this version is the ability to connect to JDBC data sources through the Data Sync tool. This allows customers to set up automated data pulls from Salesforce, Redshift, and Hive among others. In addition to these connections, Oracle RightNow CRM customers have the ability to pull directly from RightNow reports using Oracle Data Sync. Finally, connections to on premise databases and BICS can be secured using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certifications.

Of course, many of these combinations result in a draw and many more set a player down the path of an inevitable loss after only a few moves. It is no surprise that chess has pushed the limits of computational analytics which in turn has pushed the limits of players.

Thomas Friedman first talked about how globalization impacts business life in The World is Flat. In this book, he describes the ‘flattening of the world’ as the idea that workers from around the globe could collaborate and work across systems and wide spans of geography. One specific part of this flattening is a change he refers to as the “quiet revolution in software, transmission protocols” that he calls "the 'workflow revolution' because of how it made everyone’s computer and software interoperable.”
