Cloud computing has changed the way businesses and people think about using technology to serve their needs. Too many, cloud computing is nothing but hype and overblown as the new direction for Information Technology. But to many more, cloud computing represents the future of how every business should plan, operate and execute applications, systems and processes. Goldman Sachs forecasts spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018 compared with 5 percent growth for overall enterprise IT. Moreover, Forrester recently revised its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20 percent. Regardless, it is important to know what cloud computing is.

When the CMO Council recently asked more than 200 senior marketing decision makers how effectively they have aligned physical and digital experiences, half admitted that these integrated experiences were selective, at best. Yet it is alignment, consistency and connection that drive the foundational relationship between the brand and the buyer.
The CMO Council, in partnership with IBM, will host a one-hour interactive webcast with industry-leading media, entertainment and telecommunications marketers to discuss how audience insights across the digital and physical experience have been turned into action, allowing these brands to personalize and enrich each engagement.
Multiple case studies will also be discussed during the webcast that focus on the power of segmentation and innovations around cognitive computing.

The ongoing success of 7ticks depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements. To support the torrid growth of data, 7ticks needed to expand the IP/MPLS network connecting its data centers to 40 Gbps—and have an immediate path to 100 Gbps and beyond. Within its data centers, 7ticks needed network and security solutions that would keep pace—and would simplify service management and support automation.
“Our biggest challenge is performance at scale,” says Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and vice president of IT infrastructure at Interactive Data. “IT is our business. The 7ticks infrastructure helps customers get a lower time to market and faster execution speeds at a cost that’s sustainable for their businesses.”
As more companies compete for business, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) increasingly demand higher production rates and greater production flexibility from suppliers. If smaller-sized companies want to compete, they need the right tools and latest technology. NC Machining manufactures should ask three primary questions when considering the tools to improve competitiveness and implement Lean practices:
• Do the tools provide the means for improved collaboration between engineering and manufacturing, and incorporate manufacturing best practices?
• Can all data and program information reside in one database or platform that is accessible concurrently by all enterprise stakeholders—from design engineering to the shop floor?
• Is it possible to perform real-time multi-disciplinary simulations to improve performance and manufacturing targets?

Companies are facing more complex challenges than ever, requiring a variety of disciplines to come together to set a future vision and strategy. Historically, says Alec Binder, director, advisory at KPMG, these challenges have been treated as technology problems that can be solved simply by buying a better platform or solution.
However, as explained in Part 1 of this series on KPMG’s Technology Strategy and Selection (TSS) framework, that outlook often does not drive the outcomes or the value that companies are expecting. For large transformations, a business-driven, technology-support effort is becoming an imperative, not a nice-to-have. The modular approach of the TSS framework allows for the right services and business ideas to be brought in seamlessly and holistically — toward setting a future vision and choosing technology that truly drives change.
