When it comes to Design for Manufacturing (DFM), its never too early to start. Planning ahead and thinking through the entire product lifecycle is the best way to reap all the benefits that come from excellent design including better part selection, improved product quality, streamlined approvals and cost savings. Start by identifying an experienced Countract Manufacturer (CM) that understands the importance of good DFM and who will work with the product developer at every step.
Enterprises often treat information security technology as an insurance policy against the potentially devastating costs of not deploying it. From that perspective, your security technologys ROI is determined by the time it takes for a breachone with costs equal to or greater than your investmentto occur. Your ROI could be immediate. Or it could be longer term. With that in mind, it is hard to justify yet another security technology, but a move to the cloud suggests that you should.
Todays data breaches are planned and executed with military precision. This Security Brief reveals how cybercriminals can get in and out of your network without being detected. It also gives you tips for helping secure your data, documents, and devices.

Accelerate Cloud App Adoption without Compromising Security
How secure is your cloud data?
Security is still seen as the biggest concern when organizations consider cloud services. In multi-cloud environments, every cloud service has its own security framework, different APIs and different authentication mechanisms. The key question is; how do you make sure you have a consistent security strategy across all your cloud services, that adjusts to different cloud services, is well managed, can adapt to new cloud services and is scalable?
In this session Forcepoint Senior Product Marketing Manager, Ankur Chadda, discusses:
How to gain full visibility into your cloud environment, including shadow IT
Unified policy management and enforcement for on-premises and cloud security
How to control cloud access by unmanaged devices (BYOD)

Challenge: An air purifier manufacturer needed to remind customers to periodically change filters to maintain product efficiency and deliver consistent customer experience.
Solution: We helped them develop a Bluetooth enabled smart air filter, where an embedded sensor measured the effectiveness of the filter and relayed that information to an iOS or Android app. Users were alerted when filters needed replacing, and given the opportunity to buy directly through online retailers and also to subscribe to the Amazon Device Replenishment Service.
Increased revenue through replacement filter sales
Expected to touch 50,000 users in the first year

For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results or any other business need a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
As organizations develop next-generation applications for the digital era, many are using cognitive computing ushered in by IBM Watson® technology. Cognitive applications can learn and react to customer preferences, and then use that information to support capabilities such as confidence-weighted outcomes with data transparency, systematic learning and natural language processing.
Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business,
the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most
successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured,
rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations,
stored and put to work to enable business strategies. Data integration
tools play a critical role in extracting data from a variety of sources and
making it available for enterprise applications, business intelligence
(BI), machine learning (ML) and other purposes. Many organization
seek to enhance the value of data for line-of-business managers by
enabling self-service access. This is increasingly important as large
volumes of unstructured data from Internet-of-Things (IOT) devices
are presenting organizations with opportunities for game-changing
insights from big data analytics. A new survey of 369 IT professionals,
from managers to directors and VPs of IT, by BizTechInsights on
behalf of IBM reveals the challe
Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?
How are the roles involve

The concept of an automated home is not a new one: the idea has been floated since the 1930s at Worlds Fair venues, and in popular culture as TV shows and movies imagine home life of the future solidifying the publics view of the benefits of home automation.
In the 1980s, modern versions of the automated home began to turn up in the marketplace. The concept of the connected house was first introduced by the American Association of Homebuilders, and formed the basis of what we now consider to be home automation. The connected house presented a new way to wire, connect, and control all of the devices in the modern home. However, it proved to be too expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to construct, and became limited to the luxury homebuilder market.
