The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation,
conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties
in remote locations. However, outsourcing can take many
forms, and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) does
not always mean the displacing of the finance back office.
Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement
and support the back office, streamlining processes while
providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and
analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on
strategy, analysis and decision-making.

“While 3D design tools have been around for a while, the consumerisation of VR is opening-up visualisation options at an unprecedented rate. Visualisation has evolved to a level that allows designers to produce photorealistic images of products in natural environments faster and with more accuracy, enabling even faster time-to-market and allowing customers to experience the product for themselves – and all without real-world prototyping and modelling costs. This guide is designed to give you an overview of the latest developments in visualisation and introduce our new VR Centres of Excellence in Limerick, Cork, Paris, Frankfurt, Dubai, Santa Clara or Austin, where you can experience the benefits for yourself.”

“Si les outils de conception 3D existent depuis quelque temps déjà, la consumérisation de la réalité virtuelle fait émerger des solutions de visualisation à un rythme sans précédent. La visualization a atteint un tel niveau que les concepteurs peuvent désormais créer des images photoréalistes de produits dans des environnements naturels avec plus de rapidité et de précision. Cela permet une commercialisation encore plus rapide et donne aux clients la possibilité d’expérimenter le produit par eux-mêmes, sans encourir les coûts réels de prototypage et de modélisation. Ce guide est conçu pour vous donner un aperçu des tout derniers développements en matière de visualisation et présente nos nouveaux centres d’excellence sur la réalité virtuelle, situés à Limerick, Cork, Paris, Francfort, Dubaï, Santa Clara et Austin, où vous pourrez découvrir les atouts de ces technologies.”

Modern storage arrays can’t compete on price without a range of data reduction
technologies that help reduce the overall total cost of ownership of external
storage. Unfortunately, there is no one single data reduction technology that fits
all data types and we see savings being made with both data deduplication and
compression, depending on the workload. Typically, OLTP-type data (databases)
work well with compression and can achieve between 2:1 and 3:1 reduction,
depending on the data itself. Deduplication works well with large volumes of
repeated data like virtual machines or virtual desktops, where many instances or
images are based off a similar “gold” master.
In his time as Director of E-Commerce at Linen Chest, Riaz Faride was faced with a challenge right out of the gate. He found himself responsible for a site that had page load times ranging anywhere from 6 to 30 seconds. Linen Chest’s site was heavy, images were hosted on the origin, and code was never refactored and needed to be optimized. Riaz knew he needed to make some changes, and fast.
It’s more complex and expensive than ever to deliver seamless web experiences to any customer on any device, anywhere. Images are becoming the top obstacle to delivering high performing, responsive sites. View this infographic to see how you can solve the image management problem.
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.
The modern digital experience is very much a visual experience. It's through images that we tell our stories, market our products, impart news, and entertain — and forge an emotional connection with our customers. However, delivering today's increasingly image-rich experiences is fraught with complexity. It requires dozens of renditions to optimize an image for all the devices that customers are using, not to mention their current network connection. Without an automated system, it's a daunting task. Dynamic imaging technology is the solution.
For many of us, the term “smart city” conjures up images of sensors
collecting data about everything from traffic patterns to energy use.
It’s common for government leaders to think, “That’s not for us.
We’re not there yet.” But if your organization is collecting data of any
kind, you are in a position to use that data to create a smarter city for

Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.
While using stock images and video will save you time, a conventional stock solution is not enough. You need a solution that has both high-quality images and back-end systems in place to make using those images faster and easier than ever.
It’s time to take a serious look at every step of your creative process. Find out where your holdups are, and where your creatives are wasting time. Because the truth is, the way you create content determines how quickly and how easily you can deliver quality experiences that make an impact on your customers — and your bottom line.
Stock photos get a bad rap sometimes. We’ve all seen images of women inexplicably smiling at their forkfuls of salad, or an unnaturally giddy customer service representative standing by. “Some stock photography just looks like stock photography,” says May Curry, a graphic design veteran with almost 20 years of experience.1
But stock photography has always been an essential part of the designer’s toolkit. When used right, it helps brands make just the right impact. Today, collections are evolving to keep pace with visual trends and create unique, attention-grabbing images-quickly and no budget.
