We harness Shell gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology to create high-purity process oils that open exciting opportunities for your products and operations.
Conventional process oils are derived from crude oil, whereas Shell Risella X and Shell Ondina X are made from pure synthesis gas. That frees them from the impurities and large molecular variations found in mineral oils. Using GTL process oils could enhance your processes and final products to give you a competitive advantage. 
Have you ever experienced product quality issues caused by variations in process oil batches? Do you need a low-viscosity process oil, but have concerns about the effect of volatiles on working conditions? Could you offer enhanced products if you had process oils with distinct characteristics, for example, an extremely narrow hydrocarbon distribution range?
Our GTL process oils contain a high proportion of paraffinic hydrocarbons and are very pure, which provides key qualities for many applications. For in
Applications are the modern lifeblood of the enterprise, and the desire to keep up with market demands has elevated most enterprise IT strategies from purely on-premises to hybrid and multi-cloud. But the desire to be even more agile and productive—and connect with end users in new and exciting ways—is pushing investments even further into new application environments, development processes, and management tools all leveraging cloud-native technology. In this executive brief, we home in on one component of the cloud-native movement, Kubernetes, and break down its role in achieving enterprise agility, experimentation, and innovation for competitive gain.

As businesses are driven to digital transformation by changing market forces and customer expectations, many are looking to new technologies, including new infrastructure environments, as enablers. As a result, we are seeing a near-universal appetite for hybrid outcomes as business functions are executed across multiple on-premises and external infrastructure environments in pursuit of agility, cost, performance and other business benefits. Hybrid IT has become a key strategic imperative for a large portion of enterprises, impacting their IT objectives and expectations, and likely leading to new engagements with service provides for help designing, building and operating hybrid environments.

Research shows that legacy ERP 1.0 systems were not designed for usability and insight. More than three quarters of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans 1. These systems lack modern best-practice capabilities needed to compete and grow. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”.
Oracle’s goal is to help you navigate your own journey to modernization by sharing the knowledge we’ve gained working with many thousands of customers using both legacy and modern ERP systems. To that end, we’ve crafted this handbook outlining the fundamental characteristics that define modern ERP.

As ride-hailing, e-commerce and food delivery services continue to grow, the value of curbside space is increasingly apparent. Though valuable and potentially lucrative, its original design is failing to live up to the needs of today's society. The demand for curbside space is growing, but the asset itself is fixed.
To reduce urban congestion, ensure optimal roadway performance management, encourage new mobility solutions and facilitate on-demand delivery efficiency, it is vital that the curb be better utilized.
In this eBook, gain insight from six visionaries and thought leaders with a stake in the landscape of urban mobility as they share how to better optimize curbside space.
Whenever personal data related to us is anonymized, it has been manipulated in such a way that it can no longer be linked back to us, right? Think again. In the digital era, we do not always blend into the crowd.
Location data is part of this equation because our mobility habits are unique to us. Techniques like anonymization offer service providers numerous ways to protect privacy while retaining enough data to be useful - the challenge is finding the right balance.
By reading this eBook, you’ll discover critical ways public and private organizations can help protect users’ privacy:
• Find out why de-identification does not always mean anonymity
• Understand how privacy by design can be used for standards and product or service creation
• Discover how gathering just data you need will minimize the privacy impact of collection
• Find out about new and emerging privacy-enhancing technologies

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine

The stakes are high in today's data centers. Organisations have access to massive quantities of data promising valuable insights and new opportunities for business. But data center architects need to rethink and redesign their system architectures to ingest, store and process all that information. Similarly, application owners need to assess how they can process data more effectively. Those who don't re-architect might find themselves scrambling just to keep from being drowned in a data deluge.
