Network Intelligence, also known as NI or Actionable Network Intelligence, is a series of activities and technologies used for the monitoring and data mining of networks such as ISPs, Cloud Computing service providers, and communications service providers.
NI is considered middleware in that it is used to read and analyze data packets moving through a network so as to determine the source, destination, use-protocols and other parameters of those data packets so that decisions can be made regarding cyber-security and safety, bandwidth resources, charging and billing, etc.
Network intelligence relies on deep packet inspection (DPI) by analyzing relationships and finding correlations in data packets from various sources of network traffic.
For cyber-security applications, network intelligence can rapidly identify how users contact each other, who the individuals or entities actually are, and where the sources and destinations of the communications lie in terms of IP addresses and geographical locations. This information has become increasingly important both in the private business sector and in the public government sector as cyber-breaches for identity and data theft have increased.
For commercial business applications, NI helps companies at an enterprise level to manage bandwidth usage, monitor spending for network activity, enforce policy on network restrictions, provide service assurance and more. NI extends network controls, business capabilities, security functions, and data mining for the delivery of new products and services required since the emergence of Web 2.0 and wireless 3G and 4G technologies.
B2B Marketplace Models on the Borza blog: The past few decades have seen the rise of online marketplaces. These marketplaces include both platforms with a horizontal business model that caters to a broad user base, and platforms with a vertical business model that seeks out niche markets. Initial marketplaces were horizontal, e-commerce platforms, including Amazon and Etsy. Later platforms, such as Grubhub, Uber, and Airbnb, focused on vertical, service-based offerings. More recently, the marketplace sector has seen the rise of “business to business” (B2B) platforms, including Upwork and Fiverr. However, despite the proliferation of the B2B marketplace model, such marketplaces have failed to succeed to the extent that e-commerce and service-based platforms have.

SaaS has created many opportunities as well as challenges for solution providers. Read on! In the tech and IT industries, no technology solution model has been more prevalent than Software as a Service (SaaS). The early 2000s saw the proliferation of SaaS, with Salesforce leading the foray into subscription-based, on-demand software solutions. Since then, SaaS has grown to encompass 28% of the tech industry. Spending on SaaS products is expected to double in 2020 and to encompass 45% of the total tech industry by 2023.
