The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. They’re in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. That’s the modern reality of business life—it’s happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, it’s happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are it’s no longer 9 ‘til 5.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology is at the heart of a growing trend in mass custom manufacturing as well as functional prototyping. The right additive technologies, materials and finishes are transforming manufacturing. Digital-direct thermoplastic manufacturing offers exceptional quality while opening the door to novel design parameters not possible with injection molding.
Thermoplastic additive manufacturing also bypasses the long lead time and up-front investment in injection molding tooling. If you measure your finished parts on the three dimensions: quality, time to market, and cost per cubic inch, in many situations industrial SLS offers a better total value proposition.

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
"Agile" software development is an increasingly popular development process for producing software in a flexible and iterative manner that can deliver value to the enterprise faster, reduce project risk and allow adaptation to changes more quickly.
The data maturity curve
As companies invest more and more in data access and
organization, business leaders seek ways to extract more
business value from their organization’s data.
92 percent of business leaders say that to compete in the future,
their organization must be able to exploit information much more
quickly than it can today.1
Chief Information Officers (CIO) need solutions that will allow
them to evolve their organization’s approach to data and drive real
value with strategic decisions. This journey can be depicted in
a data maturity curve.

With the explosion of unstructured content, the data warehouse is under siege. In this paper, Dr. Barry Devlin discusses data and content as two ends of a continuum, and explores the depth of integration required for meaningful business value.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
ITIL provides a framework of customizable best practice initiatives that help organizations consistently deliver high-quality IT services. Effective ITIL implementation adds value to the IT infrastructure and improves business and service delivery.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Business Service Management (BSM) is of growing importance in the IT world. By managing IT systems according to the business services they support - like order entry, online sales, shipping, or customer service - IT is able to deliver on real business goals like providing competitive advantage, improving customer satisfaction, driving revenue growth, and increasing shareholder value.
Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.
In the digital economy, data is becoming more interconnected every day. The volume of highly-connected data is growing rapidly, while also becoming a highly-valued corporate asset. By exploring relationships among people, processes and things, new business opportunities emerge, helping grow your business's competitive advantage.
Today’s CIOs no longer just oversee technology. They are now
key strategists who guide their organizations and give them
the tools they need to stay competitive. A study by Forbes
Research stated that five years ago, a CIO’s most critical
skill was deploying technology. Now, the #1 way that CIOs
provide value is by contributing to the corporate strategy, so
they can advance business objectives and drive revenue.1
In particular, CEOs rely on the CIO for guidance around
digital transformation. Organizations must transform how
they operate and take advantage of new technologies to
better engage customers and employees.
Digital transformation falls squarely on the shoulders of IT
leaders. CIOs are under pressure to drive transformation –
overcoming barriers such as cultures that are resistant to
change, employees who want to upload files anywhere,
and increased concerns about data security.
CEOs also expect CIOs to achieve results now. The
