Businesses of all sizes and industries have struggled to implement a hybrid IT environment that can meet their most critical needs, without disrupting business. The challenge is especially acute for midsized firms whose limited IT resources are facing pressure to adopt a never-ending torrent of technology innovations. In an effort to create a hybrid IT environment, many businesses end up with a multiple siloed infrastructure deployment options that consume increasing amounts of management time, effort and budget, while never quite meeting business needs.

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
Advanced key and certificate management enables the use of digital credentials even in the most demanding of security environments.

This document was created to assist organizations in the selection of the best PKI solution to meet their business and security needs. It outlines key questions to be considered during the selection process to ensure the aforementioned requirements are addressed. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list. It is meant as a starting place to assist you in your review process.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
While NFV remains both technically and business relevant today, many communications service providers (CoSPs) have found implementation very complex. NFV implementation will require further evolution in order to fully address operational and business requirements. This white paper reviews factors currently driving the network virtualization evolution and examines the impact of adopting an innovative model based on software and hardware disaggregation.
Data-driven asset performance management can help food & beverage manufacturers leverage tools such as equipment efficiency solutions, augmented reality and secure asset connection to transition from a reactive to a prescriptive approach. This will not only help reduce CapEx and OpEx, but also empower the workforce, whilst meeting manufacturing KPIs.
This report from Frost & Sullivan shows how manufacturers can achieve 20-30% cost savings by changing their asset maintenance approach.

Organisations have invested heavily in cybersecurity tools and yet more than five million data records are lost or stolen every day. The problem is not that today’s cybersecurity tools are badly
designed or missing features, the problem is that surging volumes of network traffic overwhelm security tools, causing administrators to use sampling or disable advanced features in order to preserve application performance. Also, security tools and IT staff don’t get all the data they need to detect and respond to outside attacks and insider incidents, because they are faced with “blind spots” in data collection.

Much has already been said and written about the infiltration of robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation (IA) technologies into the workforce. In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work.
To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy.
This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.
Automation is already pervasive in our lives—from tried-and-true mechanized assembly lines to the dawn of self-driving cars. But how can you use advanced forms of automation to improve your business processes?

The Insurance industry continues to undergo significant transformation, with
new technologies, business models, and competitors entering the market at an
increasing rate. To be successful in attracting and retaining the most valuable
customers, insurance companies must innovate and increase the speed at which
they respond to customer demands. Traditionally, the insurance software market
was dominated by a handful of specialist vendors with products that were initially
expensive, difficult to deploy, costly to maintain, and did not provide the speed
needed for today’s market.
Now there has been a shift away from these “black box” applications to platforms
that allow insurers to make their algorithmic IP available to business users, allowing
much faster response to business demands. The algorithmic platform approach also
comes at a fraction of the cost of black box solutions, while delivering advanced
analytical techniques like Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
