In its fifth year, the goal of the OutSystems State of Application Development Report is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the challenges, priorities, and innovations faced by IT teams around the globe in this age of digital transformation.
This analysis is based on the responses to a survey conducted in March 2018. More than 3,500 IT professionals from over 116 countries took part. Respondents worked in all kinds of industry, and in this concise summary of the report, we focus on specific findings related to the manufacturing sector.
The need for digital transformation dominates business strategy today, and there are two obvious consequences for IT. Firstly, the demand for application development (app dev) is at an all-time high. Secondly, speed and agility are more important than ever before.
This backdrop informed the themes we wanted to explore in this year’s survey, which set out to answer five critical questions:
How are the app dev priorities of organizations adjusting

La tecnologia di sinterizzazione laser selettiva (SLS) è al centro dell'attenzione e in forte crescita nella produzione di massa personalizzata e nella prototipazione funzionale. Le giuste tecnologie additive, i materiali e le finiture stanno trasformando il modo di produrre.
La manifattura termoplastica diretta digitale offre una qualità eccezionale che apre la porta a nuovi parametri di design non attuabili con il tradizionale stampaggio a iniezione. La produzione additiva di termoplastici evita anche i lunghi tempi di consegna e gli investimenti iniziali negli stampi e nelle attrezzature per lo stampaggio a iniezione. Se si misurano i pezzi finiti sui tre parametri: qualità, "time to market" e costo per metro cubo, in molte situazioni l'SLS industriale porta a una soluzione globalmente migliore.

With a couple of swipes, a like and a share, what’s in today is gone tomorrow. Graphic design trends are changing rapidly, based on a fast- spreading global pop culture that determines what’s hot, and what’s not, almost instantly.
In such a connected world, keeping pace with the right look and feel is essential. While a picture was once worth a thousand words, it’s now worth much more. If you don’t want your audience to bounce, basic is not enough.
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.

Enterprises in Asia Pacific now run multiple clouds with sizeable workloads, and cloud technologies have become increasingly challenging to manage. While IT organizations seek specialized expertise to keep pace with the constant change and complexity, what they are met with instead, is a global shortage of skilled cloud experts. As the costs in recruiting and training talent rises, the situation escalates into a hurdle to implementing cloud strategies.
To better understand the cost of cloud expertise, Rackspace teamed up with the London School of Economics (LSE) and independent research house Vanson Bourne, to research on the severity of the problem. This e-book covers the findings to provide thought-provoking insights into why you should drive your cloud journey along the managed cloud provider route, if you were to be caught in a no-win HR loop.

Global agierende Unternehmen, die höchste Ansprüche an ihren Kundenservice stellen und ihren Markenwert auf einem konstant hohem Niveau halten möchten, benötigen eine umfassende Suite an CX-Technologien, die sich problemlos implementieren und managen lässt. Allerdings widerstehen die Spitzenreiter in puncto Customer Experience der Versuchung, immer neue technologische Lösungen zur Verbesserung der Effizienz ihrer Serviceprozesse einzuführen – und genau das unterscheidet sie vom Mitbewerb. Den Entscheidungsträgern der führenden Unternehmen ist bewusst, dass sie nicht nur in neue Technologien, sondern auch in ihre Mitarbeiter investieren müssen.
Das ist die zentrale Erkenntnis der weltweiten Umfrage, die MIT Technology unter etwa 550 Unternehmensvertretern in leitenden Positionen durchgeführt hat. Im Mittelpunkt standen dabei die Fragen, welche Faktoren die Gestaltung der CX-Prozesse der Unternehmen beeinflussen und welche Tools und Strategien zur Bewältigung der Herausforderungen in d
"Managing and securing endpoints with conventional mobile device management (MDM) or enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions is time-consuming and ineffective.
For this reason, global IT leaders are turning towards unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions to consolidate their management of smartphones, tablets, laptops and IoT devices into a single management console.
To increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on their digital transformation goals, they’ll need a UEM platform that does more than just promise success. The answer is a smarter solution, built for today, that brings new opportunities, threats, and efficiency improvements to the forefront.
With Watson™, IBM® MaaS360® UEM features cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities. It helps you make sense of daily mobile details while managing your endpoints, users, apps, document, and data from one platform."
Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
How confident are you and your peers about the data and security practices you’re working with? We asked 5,000 executives globally, across 24 markets and have some interesting results to share. For example, up to half of IT leaders consider their data is manageable but struggle to gain meaningful insights from it. Yet, while AI and autonomous technology could help relieve this situation, they aren’t high on the priority list. Read our report to find out more about executives’ views about data in connection with security, ethics, and visualisation.

Frost & Sullivan review the limitations associated with a single-provider approach to MPLS networks and its impact on the enterprise. They examine Virtela's Global Service Fabric - a multi-carrier network approach that provides a best-of-breed global MPLS network solution.
Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

The basic promise of blockchain is that it works as a global distributed ledger or database of things we value - everything from money, to creative work and votes - so these can then be managed and transacted in a trusted and secure manner. Yes, blockchain is a young technology, but well past its infancy. Today, the somewhat inflated expectations around the technology have been brought to a more realistic level and we are beginning to see practical applications across the enterprise. Although these are typically in the realm of reducing cost and/or time for transactions, improving product and system security, finding and preventing fraud and counterfeiting and increasing transparency, there are also instances of businesses relying on blockchain to create new revenue streams.
