4 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Our Key Investment Theses At Sand Hill East, we have specific investment themes that guide most of our investments as follows: Machine-based learning is the best way to automate analytics, provide insights and surface anomalies Mobile is not a verb, it is a state of being BigData is not inherently useful, as it has to be used in a context people care about to be monetized Standardization (in FinTech in particular) is not only a great commoditizer but also a requirement for the next wave of innovation People are at the center of many processes and it is equally important to understand the human aspects as well as the technical ones Privacy, security and, in particular, encryption are a requirement for data inside or outside the enterprise Disruption in FinTech is going to happen because large banks are not focused on it 3

5 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Our Portfolio Has A Strong Security Focus 4 Enterprise/FinTech Enterprise/B2B/B2C Mobile/Social

6 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Key Tech Mega-Trends Software wins “All the World’s an App” Mobile wins “Always Connected” The 5Ws “Analytic Data Trails” Social wins “Always Informed” My Device My Life“Wearing the brand” Human-as-a-Service“Virtualize Expertise” Integration“Plug ‘n’ Play, not Plug ‘n’ Pray” Security“Encrypt to Survive” 5

7 Audaces fortuna iuvat. All The World’s An App (and we are merely the players) Apps are the unit of measure for software App integration with devices, people and each other is expected behavior Apps provide decision support Open Source is a clear winner Full Function Multi Device Development Containers (Docker) become the unit of measure for server side “Cloud” Functionality – IaaS Solutions (SaaS) beat pure products Information Protection is driven from Apps Many new verticals emerge (Life Science, Wellness etc) Key Sub Trends 6

8 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Transition To Cloud Forces SAP To Slash Earnings Projections German software maker SAP cut its earnings outlook because more customers are switching to its cloud services Taken together, the latest update highlights the tricky balancing act that legacy companies like SAP face as big customers move away from the traditional packaged software business toward cloud-based services Cloud services operate on a subscription model, which means less money up front but more regular revenue over time SAP is confident that the cloud deals being made today will bolster earnings in future quarters 7 Image Credit: Shutterstock/PavelkShutterstock/Pavelk Source:; Chris O’Brien

10 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Mobile Wins – “We Are Always Connected” nG/LTE, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth and iBeacon define Mobile Ecosystem (ME) Large CRE’s (Mall, Tenant buildings) adopt ME Applications adapt to guide business process – People are connected & identified everywhere – Bricks and Clicks deliver “integrated experience” Life Science, Wellness and Healthcare processes revolutionized. vHealth emerges iWear solutions (contact lens, Watch etc.) will rapidly overtake #s of devices Enterprise Services will be delivered on consumer devices & iWear (Voice, Video, Presence, Productivity, etc, etc) mPayment = transaction Key Mega Trends 9 Photo credit: Forbes

11 Audaces fortuna iuvat. “Never Mind Software – Mobile Is Eating The World” 10 It has been three years since Marc Andreessen, co-founder of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, wrote his influential essay, “Why Software is Eating the World.” Nothing has changed since then to cast doubt on the ideas he presentedWhy Software is Eating the World One big change has occurred, though: The rise of mobile Source: WSJD 10/28/14

12 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Never Mind Software - Mobile beats Web! 11 Source: WSJD 10/28/14

13 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Never Mind Software – “Email is for Grandparents” 12 Source: WSJD 10/28/14

14 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Mobile Wins – “We Are Always Connected ” IBM / Apple partnership has strong potential Tech/BioTech cross overs create new revenue streams IoT supply chain vendors are very interesting Mobile TelCo Data usage will continue to rise Droid security addressed WiFi/Bluetooth/NFC/iBeacon supply chain has a lot to offer the market BI Visualization leaders (DATA, QLIK & Others) will grow >> market Big Vendors Oracle/SAP seem to be missing this boat! Key Investment Takeaways 13 + ? Telephony “Voice”

15 Audaces fortuna iuvat. The 5 Ws – Analytic Data Trails (Who, What, When, Where, Why) I was at the dentist in London this morning for a root canal. I posted on facebook and my friends sent me ice cream Context is the most important facet of real time marketing & interaction Social and Mobile Data Trails define 5Ws ++ use cases “Audience of One” is driven from understanding my5Ws Data ownership, protection and controls hugely important Insight, Analytics & Alerting solutions will grow Scariest context is MyHumanGenome Data of every type every where (FB, Gdrive, SkyDrive, DropBox, Box, UsendME etc) but not policy managed or encrypted by default Privacy emerges as an even bigger global topic… Key Mega Trends 14

16 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Consumer Privacy Is Improving …As Device Encryption Enters Stage Left 15 Your Privacy KEY TAKEAWAY – ENCRYPTION OF CLOUD INFORMATION NEXT; SIMILARLY ENTERPRISE DATA CENTER’s MOVE FROM PERIMETER TO CONTENT

17 Audaces fortuna iuvat. The 5Ws – Analytic Data Trails (Who, What, When, Where, Why) Integration of data trails is owned by ‘Appgregators’ Context based marketing and advertising will define the new generation Email marketing mobile hooked will succeed Traditional email marketing will disappear (SaneMail) Business Processes will be lightweight, adaptable and value may be delivered through one killer useful orchestration or function Management of and entitlement of data trails very important Key Investment Takeaways 16 …

18 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Social Wins – We Are Always Informed Continued growth, expansion and incremental enhancement of major brands New business models being built on major social hubs Social “owns” “Face time”, advertising, marketing, mobile Social Commerce becomes the norm Key Mega Trends 17

19 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Social Wins – “We Are Always Informed” FB, TWTR, LNKD continue to lead. Overlays, feed consumers to close loop around real time sentiment emerging (e.g. Pivit) Contextual Social is a Big Threat to GOOG, YHOO, BING AAPL Desktop Search starting to threaten Search giants Threat to AMZN, eBay et al but integration can be powerful New paradigm for regulation emerges as finance moves into this space mPayment and CyberCurrency will drive changes Key Investment Takeaways 18

22 Audaces fortuna iuvat. My Device My Life Devices persist, but pace of innovation slows Wearables that integrate with Devices via cloud drive extremely high growth Traditional Desktop PC is as dead as Monty Python’s Parrot Wellness & Illness will dramatically transform Services businesses will integrate with Wearables and Devices to make life much easier vs 800 ‘n’ wait Key Mega Trends 21

23 Audaces fortuna iuvat. My Device My Life Supply Chain providers to wearables very interesting; Specialized and high barrier to entry Vertical integration (Devices, apps, Cloud) remains very interesting. Positions FB, Goog, AAPL positively PC ecosystem very negative Enterprises that face consumers have to participate or risk antiquity Key Investment Takeaways 22

24 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Human-As-A-Service Global Virtual Enterprises emerge with completely different economics than “The Bricks” Expertise is acquired as a service and paid for when it is used Digital training, and expertise acquisition becomes very important Education seen as the vehicle to generate wealth. 2 nd and 3 rd world countries will lead because they are hungrier Key Mega Trends 23

25 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Human-As-A-Service New Service providers unlike ACC, INFOSYS etc emerging Aggregators emerge who can connect buy side and sell side of the market Orchestrators emerge who integrate aggregators with buy side on a transaction and longer term basis Labor becomes a traded market for commodity labor types (e.g. like TopCoder) Traditional strongholds of margin such as ERP programs become fewer as cloud wins Key Investment Takeaways 24 Big N Integrators Strategic consulting

26 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Integration – Plug ‘n’ Play Not Plug ‘n’ Pray Integration is all about software protocols Software defines everything (Security, Storage, Servers, Network), but requires integration New technologies being “cloudified” by the day Open Source playing big role in standardization but – Appgregators have an opportunity to deliver significant value proposition Key Mega Trends 25

27 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Integration – Plug ‘n’ Play Not Plug ‘n’ Pray Key Investment Takeaways Technical integration becomes all about the normalization of content, and automation using standard interfaces Delivery is Mobile (Phone or Tablet) Normalized Content creates context which is the enabler for marketing advertising and useful services Mobile app providers are very well positioned to combine Cloud and Appgregation and win in Integration 26

28 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Security – Encrypt To Survive Technology proliferates, major successful exploits target human weakness via social exploitation – Social Media Scams and Malware Flourish on Mobile – Prevalence of scams fail to change behavior on social media APT biggest issue is zero-day vulnerabilities and unpatched websites which facilitate watering- hole attacks Ransomware attacks grew by 500 percent in 2013 and turned vicious Attackers are turning their attention to IoT Current approaches are failing - Impossible for enterprises to stay ahead Key Mega Trends Source: Internet Security Threat Report 2014 :: Volume 19; Symantec 27 “Financial services firms need to spend much more on security than they currently are” Jim Cramer after JPMC hack in October 2014 It seems clear at this point that perimeter defense has failed and Encryption of content is required to secure data It seems clear at this point that perimeter defense has failed and Encryption of content is required to secure data

29 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Security – Encrypt To Survive New York's financial regulator told banks in a letter to tighten their cybersecurity, particularly in terms of third-party service providers they might use (Reuters) Federal officials also warned companies that hackers have stolen more than 500 million financial records over the past 12 months, essentially breaking into banks without ever entering a building (USA Today) "We're in a day when a person can commit about 15,000 bank robberies sitting in their basement," said Robert Anderson, executive assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Cyber Response and Services Branch Conclusion : Hackers compromise enterprises daily. Consumer Encrypted, now Enterprise Encryption ESSENTIAL! MSSP's only scaleable model. 28 JPMorgan Chase & Co. announced in October that a recent cyber attack compromised customer information for about 76 million households and 7 million small businesses J.P. Morgan CEO: “Cybersecurity Spending to Double”

30 Audaces fortuna iuvat. Security – Encrypt To Survive Key Investment Takeaways Companies that are specialists in security defense will win (i.e. Horizon, Accuvant, Symantec and Dell Secure Works + Newcos) With so much personal data increasingly being aggregated the need for strong security is increasing Combinations of vendors will be needed to fight attackers Security spending will continue to increase (double) each year for the forseeable future, because threats are Encryption will drive the tipping point for public cloud and signal the end of perimeter based defense 29 Enterprise Encryption Vendors (Dell, Symantec, Voltage) Enterprise Perimeter Defense Vendors Enterprise APT Defense Vendors Traditional AV
