Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments
Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and

3d models  In terms of comparing 3D computer-aided design (CAD) offerings, one can put SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor , Solid Edge, and even PTC CoCreate (now Creo/Elements Direct ) in the mid-market category, and Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX , and PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E ) in the large enterprise category. For the latter, I don’t see subscription or cloud models coming any time soon. The reason for Autodesk to do pay-as-you-go is that it fits with the vendor’s overall strategy in how it targets

Data Center Economics: Analyzing Challenges and Opportunities


In order to meet data center challenges, organizations must take measures to consolidate data centers and look at outsourcing arrangements and alternate models of data center management. However, because carrying out a data center strategy typically requires a large investment in time and costs, organizations today are making tactical decisions that have minimal impact. While some organizations are contemplating alternate models for data center management, others seem to be dragging their feet in making any meaningful changes to their strategy. Find out more in this report on results from a survey that included 75 CIOs and heads of IT from Fortune 1000 companies across US, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

Modern Finance In The Digital Age: Report and Comply Best Practices


In the era of big data, the traditional models for report and comply functions are becoming obsolete. But report and comply processes no longer have to be time consuming, frustrating, or fragmented. By consolidating systems and information across departments and divisions, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions via cloud technologies can help businesses modernize these processes, making the record-to-report cycle faster and allowing for data to be in the right hands and the right time. This synchronization of information via the cloud can streamline what used to be a long and complex process. Better business choices can be made by installing best practices for data governance, ensuring that the highest quality data is used and errors are avoided.

Increasingly, modern business models feature cloud technology as vital for present and future transactions, but best practices must also be installed to ensure success. In this white paper, read how to develop and refine report and comply best practices in the areas of general ledger accounting, the financial close, management reporting, and external reporting. Learn how the standard of real-time decision making is being challenged and replaced by a more forward-thinking, data-driven idea of “right-time” decision making, and the importance of streamlining report and comply functions. By using best practices and technology together, learn how to modernize and hone these processes to develop a more efficient strategic process that allows tasks to occur simultaneously, allowing everyone to have the same access to information, reduce errors, and eliminate overtime.
