Investment casting is a precise manufacturing methodology that delivers value across industries, from mechanical, automotive and aerospace parts to intricate dental work, jewelry and sculpture. For centuries the trade-off for smooth and accurate investment casted parts has been high costs and long casting pattern lead times.
Now the evolution of parts is accelerating dramatically in many industries resulting in shorter product life cycles and lower volumes of casted parts between cycles. Waiting for tooling for obsolete parts for aging aircraft also mean delays for aircraft to be repaired, costing time and money. Demand for faster foundry production is increasing in all industries and foundries need to be ready to respond.

Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in
To remain competitive, manufacturers must focus on achieving new growth while driving down costs. Key to achieving this is greater flexibility and a dramatic upturn in operational efficiency across the manufacturing process. One area ripe for improvement is intralogistics transportation.
Many manufacturers still rely on autonomous guide vehicles (AGVs) to undertake repetitive transport tasks; but, rigid in nature, they do not support today’s demand-driven, dynamic manufacturing environments. Intelligent autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), like SEIT* from Milvus Robotics, offer a viable and cost-effective alternative.
This solution brief describes how to solve business challenges through investment in innovative technologies.
Keeping the lights on in a manufacturing environment remains top priority for industrial companies. All too often, factories are in a reactive mode, relying on manual inspections that risk downtime because they don’t usually reveal actionable problem data.
Find out how the Nexcom Predictive Diagnostic Maintenance (PDM) system enables uninterrupted production during outages by monitoring each unit in the Diesel Uninterrupted Power Supplies (DUPS) system noninvasively.
• Using vibration analysis, the system can detect 85% of power supply problems before they do damage or cause failure

There can be no doubt that the architecture for analytics has evolved
over its 25-30 year history. Many recent innovations have had significant
impacts on this architecture since the simple concept of a single
repository of data called a data warehouse. First, the data warehouse
appliance (DWA), along with the advent of the NoSQL revolution, selfservice analytics, and other trends, has had a dramatic impact on the
traditional architecture. Second, the emergence of data science, realtime operational analytics, and self-service demands has certainly had
a substantial effect on the analytical architecture.
Finance leaders believe data management is a burden on businesses. Yet less than half of organisations have a data management strategy in place. But data management strategies positively impact security across all lines of business.
Poor data management practices inevitably lead to poor outcomes, with bad decisions based on bad data. Data must also be protected, with weak practices leading to cyber breaches. And the reputational damage to an organisation’s brand cannot be underestimated. However, when managed well, data offers a competitive advantage. In the past, data was typically informed historical reporting, with internal needs and compliance taking priority.
There is a new data paradigm. Data is the new currency in the digital age.

In today’s competitive landscape, businesses need to make decisions quickly in order to respond to rapidly changing customer preferences and nimble competitors; whether it’s a new business strategy, a new business process, or a new market offering, businesses are competing on speed and agility.
The overwhelming majority of today’s business and IT leaders understand digital transformation is necessary to maintain leverage amid constantly changing customer preferences. They also have a clear picture of their desired end state—exemplified by leaders like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. However, only a small minority of have a clear understanding of the path they need to lead the market.
In this paper you’ll learn:

A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy. Meanwhile, data runs rampant, slows systems, and impacts performance. Hard-copy documents multiply, become damaged, or simply disappear.
Respond to customer feedback faster
Organizations are demanding greater flexibility from the software they use. Yet, most line-of-business applications are built on top of rigid commercial databases that make them difficult and expensive to deploy. By building applications on top of Amazon Aurora, a cost-effective database solution from Amazon Web Services (AWS), independent software vendors (ISVs) can get away from commercial databases and the hassles they create for end customers.
In this webinar, AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner Onica will show you how to leverage Amazon Aurora to make it easier for customers to operate your software, in turn increasing sales. You will also learn how to leverage the breadth and depth of AWS services to improve developer productivity and become more responsive to customer feedback as a result.
With more data to analyze than ever before, companies are finding new ways to quickly find meaning in their data with artificial intelligence (AI). Natural Language Generation (NLG) technologies deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) can enable organizations to free their employees from manual data analysis and interpretation tasks. NLG transforms data into easy-to-understand, data-driven narratives with context and relevance.
Add more value to your business

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.

Modernize your applications quickly
Many organizations are finding their legacy technology to be inadequate due to its rigidity and high costs. In search of more flexible and cost-effective solutions, many are turning to the cloud. Most Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), however, still build their solutions on commercial databases that are expensive and time-consuming for their customers to deploy and maintain. This is a significant undertaking that can hinder adoption.
To address these challenges head on, ISVs can modernize their applications on Amazon Aurora, a database offering from AWS that combines the reliability and performance of commercial databases with the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of open source solutions. In this webinar, you will learn how Virtusa, an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner, can accelerate your application modernization journey and help you grow your business.
