IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.

EXPECTATIONS FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE
CONTINUE TO RISE AROUND THE GLOBE
Customers expect more from brands when it comes to convenience,
resolution times, and agent expertise. Evolving customer preferences
are tightly linked to innovations in digital technology, and brands must
embrace both in order to keep pace with heightened expectations. The
good news is that brands that can deliver on expectations are rewarded
with higher rates of customer retention and loyalty.
The Microsoft 2017 State of Global Customer Service survey polled
5,000 people from Brazil, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and
the United States. We continue to find commonalities along with distinct
differences between locals. And though people in all age groups are
embracing new digital trends, millennials especially are shaping the way
