A related recent development in the data center is converged infrastructure (CI). Instead of the traditional silo deployment approach to storage, compute, and network resources, all infrastructure elements are delivered and managed in a single environment, providing virtualized access to business services in an efficient manner. This is particularly suitable for cloud-based delivery models. However, since CI achieves lower costs through optimization of data center resources, it can be effective for all IT organizations, regardless of the way in which the services are managed or presented.
As diverse organizations seek to implement data-driven strategies, the personal computer in all its varieties remains the key workforce productivity tool. IT leaders must guide PC management across the entire PC lifecycle to enable users to work most effectively.
Today, IT leaders address the PC lifecycle across a continuum from control to transformation. Control is geared to optimization, while transformation focuses on the business impact of technology.

Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process.
Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some
of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is
plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical
element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for
metal additive manufacturing.
It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print.
Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required
for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications.
This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM,
explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing
business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.
This paper highlights the advances in closed-loop marketing that enable measurement and optimization of digital marketing efforts. It also describes the challenges that CMOs face when pursuing digital marketing strategies and how next-generation WCM solutions help CMOs overcome those challenges.

MANUFACTURING: AN INDUSTRY DRIVEN BY DISRUPTION
A leading manufacturer today can be an also-ran next year. Disruption is the new
normal. Maintain the status quo at your peril because no manufacturer is safe from:
•? Innovative new products that can radically shift demand
•? Falling prices that relentlessly pressure costs
•? Dynamic business models where yesterday’s partner can become
Turning disruption into your advantage requires continuous innovation and
optimization, driven by data.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
Watch this webinar to learn how TIBCO’s Smart Manufacturing solutions can help you overcome these challenges. You will also see a demonstration of TIBCO technology in action around improving yield and optimizing processes while also saving costs.
What You Will Learn:
Applying advanced analytics & machine learning / AI techniques to optimize complex manufacturing processes
How multi-variate statistical process control can help to detect deviations from a baseline
How to monitor in real time the OEE and produce a 360 view of your factory
The webinar also highlights customer case studies from our clients who have already successfully implemented process optimization models.

A Technology Adoption Profile based on a custom survey of 102 North American and European enterprise IT decision-makers with knowledge of their company’s performance and capacity management capabilities.
Your migration is also an opportunity for a “data center do-over” that could include virtualization optimization, cloud adoption, Active Directory cleanup, and server and storage updates. After all, the preparation and process for implementing these advances in IT capability are exactly the same as for an OS migration.

When buying a workstation, price-performance matters. But it’s not the only
consideration. Also important is aligning features and capabilities with user
applications and workloads. So are system optimization, expandability and
support. While many buyers — especially in graphics, video and multimedia
fields — might consider Apple’s iMac, iMac Pro and MacBook Pro models
best suited to their needs, they may be selling themselves short in many
ways. This paper provides a checklist for buyers to compare Apple’s newest
high-end offerings with the latest Dell Precision workstations.

Cart abandonment, digital advertising (especially when faced with ad-blocking software), and discrete digital stores are relics of the past when it comes to e-commerce. Consider this: How much revenue do you think $1 spent on digital advertising will generate in commerce sales? The answer: A bit more than twice the investment—an abysmally unprofitable equation for any company carrying physical inventory.
