After a long dry spell triggered in part by the global downturn in the economy, manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence. According to the Institute of Supply Management1 (ISM), American manufacturing continues to improve. The ISM recently reported that manufacturing activity expanded in September 2014 for the 16th consecutive month, and that the overall national economy grew for the 64th consecutive month. Part of this growth is being fueled by the adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) and analysis solutions powered by high performance computing (HPC)—especially by the Tier One manufacturers. HPC is beginning to make some inroads into the ranks of the small to medium sized manufacturers (SMMs), but the going is slow.

We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks. At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close. Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family. Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify. The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you. Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake. Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.

Local authorities continue to search for ways to improve society – to increase economic growth and social mobility, and to address environmental goals through the regeneration of town centres and regions. Technology, as ever, undoubtedly plays a role in this transformation, but creating the ‘smart city’ of the future is more than simply adopting digital; at its core, a smart city uses technology to solve problems and improve citizen experiences. Global ‘smart city’ revenue is expected to grow to $88.7bn and, with its ability to deliver better public services, efficiently and sustainably, it’s no wonder. The economic impact of smart cities cannot be understated and, as the UK continues to tackle the uncertainty of its departure from the European Union (EU), it is critical that the needs of business are met. “Businesses need smart cities, or the innovation they represent, to thrive in a world where traditional industries are getting disrupted every day.”To facilitate this, it is vita

The economic face of the APAC region is changing. While the East has long been considered a source of competitively priced raw materials and manufacturing services, the spending power of its inhabitants - and their increased fondness for international travel - has transformed it into a force to be reckoned with. It’s estimated that, over the next five years, 88% of the growth in the global middle class will be in the Asia Pacific region.1 If multinational companies hope to take advantage of this vast new target market, they will need to adapt their expansion strategies and offer APAC customers a tailored retail experience.

As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.

As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two. Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) — it is flash-driven architectures.

Many in the United States’ power generation industry no doubt long for the relative market tranquility of the late 20th century. The generation plants built and operated then were carbon-fueled or nuclear-powered, with a few hydro-electric plants sprinkled in. The economics were largely stable and predictable, often thanks to regulation that shielded utilities from market fluctuations. But even in those simpler times, when the market was far less volatile, there was still much due diligence required when investors and developers were considering multi-milliondollar commitments in new generation projects. Today’s market is more volatile, due in large part to the disruptive effect of low-cost natural gas and the subsequent, rapid growth of affordable renewable energy. As more uneconomical and inefficient generation plants go offline, there is, for the most part, sufficient carbon-free or carbon-reduced generation to meet the growing demand for electric energy. There are pockets of growth

With trends such as big data, artificial intelligence and IoT dominating today’s business technology headlines, the buzz around enterprise mobility (now considered known and familiar) may have lessened, but its importance has not. Consider its key role in today’s top tech trends, and then also consider this. According to an Oxford Economics survey of 500 senior IT executives, CEOs, and other senior managers, 80% say workers cannot do their jobs effectively without a mobile device. The same survey shows: 82% say mobile devices are critical to employee productivity 82% say mobile devices are critical to agility and the speed of decision making 76% say mobile devices are critical to customer service and satisfaction 75% say mobile devices are critical to innovation and collaboration 70% say mobile devices are critical to employee satisfaction and 70% say mobile devices are critical to revenue growth.

Consumers have witnessed unprecedented socioeconomic, political and technological change in the past 30 years. Shifts in behavior and demand have opened up new markets, while existing ones have expanded their offerings, triggering an avalanche of products and services. Ecommerce has emerged as a by-product of consumerism; the digital marketplace has freed both consumers and merchants from the restraints of proximity. This has resulted in spiraling growth. Marketing in 2018 is unrecognizable to the marketing of the 1980s. Back then there were only a few communication channels available, whereas now there are a myriad of options. Thanks to the digital revolution, the shopfront now sits on the consumer’s coffee table. Brands now cater for empowered customers, and as such, it’s become tougher for marketers to know where to allocate their budget and how to keep their message consistent. This whitepaper will discuss how marketing channels have evolved to fit the needs of omnichannel consu

It should come as no surprise that storage budgets are constantly under pressure from opposing forces: On one hand, economic forces are pushing budgets to either stay flat or, in many cases, shrink as a percentage of a company's revenue. On the other hand, the infrastructure struggles to keep up with the pace of data growth, pressured by many variables, both social and economic. Businesses have no choice but to acclimate their storage infrastructure to the unprecedented levels at which data is growing.

The global financial crisis of 2008 still reverberates today. Sluggish economic growth, stricter regulatory requirements and rapidly changing consumer behavior are placing unprecedented demands on the banking industry. In recent years, banks – particularly those with substantial retail operations – have relied on the lethargy of their customers to maintain their business. Customer loyalty has been based more on proximity of local branches and convenience of ATM networks than the quality of customer care or products and services priced and tailored to a bank’s best customers. In response to the financial crisis, banks have focused on wringing complexity and costs from their systems – exacerbated by mergers and acquisitions – while dealing with new and tighter regulations. Yet, their traditional “one-size-fits-all” mass-marketing approach to customers has remained constant.

Not storing data is cheaper than storing it. As enterprise data continues to grow and IT budgets remain flat, organizations need to more effectively maximize existing storage capacity and manage storage spend based on data value. In this white paper, Enterprise Strategy Group Sr. Analyst Mark Peters demonstrates how IBM's Information Lifecycle Governance solutions can help IT buyers improve the information economics for their organizations by curtailing data growth through defensible disposal of data.
