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?

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be upon us on May 25th 2018, and contrary to enduring public opinion, Brexit won’t make any difference. The GDPR comes in response to global shuffling of privacy laws to meet the growing demands of cloud, data security and other technological needs. The US Safe Harbor framework has been replaced with Privacy Shield, and on top of this is the e-Privacy Regulation, which takes specific interest in electronic communications, cookies for tracking user behaviour online, and other issues around personal data and consent.

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how t

Mobile has become the first screen for consumers in terms of internet time spent. Hyperlocal location data is unique to mobile and provides a lot of new, valuable information about consumers.
Today’s sophisticated buyers demand more transparency in location data science, better campaign performance and ROI from attribution modeling. Finding the right partner that can help build the bridge between real-world consumer behavior and mobile programmatic advertising in a transparent way is essential.
To meet those challenges and address the demand for top quality location data, adsquare integrated a global database of HERE Places in April 2017. By leveraging HERE Places and overlaying raw location data of anonymous users with POI data points, adsquare is able to understand exactly what consumers are doing in the real world: what places they visit, when and how often.

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as they do not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure. Read about Medical company Mutoh and how it took advantage of the latest technology.
As IT demands mount, IT organizations simply no longer have the luxury of spending resources to verify every vendor promise. Systems just need to work, while delivering a future free from costly data migrations. As a response, IT vendors have begun to offer guarantees in performance, guarantees in data reduction rates, guarantees in data deduplication, or free upgrades. These programs, however, are often limited to a single storage or data protection product offering, typically with all-flash technology. Dell EMC solutions, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor goes one step further with a program that delivers a future-proof infrastructure promise that extends to its larger storage, hyperconverged, and data protection portfolio and provides support across both generational and architectural transitions.
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
