Both are fueled by a drive for progress, for pushing
boundaries and advancing the status quo. In these fields,
new trends are like a currency. Keeping ahead of the
next big trend means being aware of the next big seller
and allocating all the right resources – fashion design,
manufacturing, and marketing – for maximum impact.
Miss the hype and the next fashion season is bound to
hurt the bottom line.
New trends are also important to marketers because
owning a new trend is a way to differentiate in today’s
fast-moving digital landscape. It’s a way to stand out
from the pack by investing strategically in the right
approaches and technologies at the right time, then
reaping the benefits organically by leading where others
follow. Naturally, making these decisions requires a bit
of trial and error. Nobody has a magic crystal ball that
guarantees success. But as a rule of thumb, the companies
winning in digital marketing are the ones willing to
adopt new technologies while keeping an sharp.

A key difference between consumer and business-to-business branding is the influence of selling channels, including sales reps, dealers and distributors. While many consumer products are also sold through a channel, the marketer generally reaches past the channel with branding messages, relegating the channel to the status of a local point of sale. By contrast, in many B-to-B markets, the local dealer or distributor really “owns” the end customer and can control access and communications to and from the customer.

This is confirmed by a recent Gartner1
survey, in which 86 percent of participating companies listed customer experience
as the main factor for gaining a competitive advantage, compared with merely 36 percent in 2012.

Millennials are different than any other generation before them. They are making major decisions later in life—from choosing a career, getting married, buying a home and yes, investing in life insurance.

Technology has had a truly transformative impact on the healthcare space. Thanks to innovations in technology, tools and their respective processes, the practice of treating patients has shifted from mostly reactive to proactive, enabling physicians and caregivers to approach healthcare in a more holistic fashion.
As part of that shift, hospitals, wellness centers and physicians’ offices are focusing on providing value over volume1, taking healthcare beyond the four walls of the facility and into patients’ homes, places of work and social centers. The concept of whole health is much easier to attain with technology such as artificial intelligence, analytics, wearables and mobile health (mHealth) apps, to name a few.

This report describes how improving the efficiency of data storage, deduplication solutions has enabled organizations to cost-justify the increased use of disk for backup and recovery. However, the changing demands on IT storage infrastructures have begun to strain the capabilities of initial deduplication products. To meet these demands, a new generation of deduplication solutions is emerging which scale easily, offer improved performance and availability and simplify management and integration within the IT storage infrastructure. HP refers to this new generation as "Deduplication 2.0.
