Investment casting is a precise manufacturing methodology that delivers value across industries, from mechanical, automotive and aerospace parts to intricate dental work, jewelry and sculpture. For centuries the trade-off for smooth and accurate investment casted parts has been high costs and long casting pattern lead times.
Now the evolution of parts is accelerating dramatically in many industries resulting in shorter product life cycles and lower volumes of casted parts between cycles. Waiting for tooling for obsolete parts for aging aircraft also mean delays for aircraft to be repaired, costing time and money. Demand for faster foundry production is increasing in all industries and foundries need to be ready to respond.

In recent years, Europe has seen a real boost in the building of renewable generation capacity. Germany is a notable example of a country with significant growth in renewables. As shown in Figure 1 below, since 2000, the average annual growth of installed capacity in Germany has been more than 15 percent, reaching 18-20 percent between 2009 and 2010.
For the most part, favorable conditions for the development of renewables have been caused by support schemes, previously based on feed-in-tariffs and competitive auctions. Now the country has reached a point where renewables account for around 53 percent of installed capacity and around 36 percent share in total electricity demand, already exceeding the 2020 target of 35 percent.

European energy markets are undergoing many changes in order to adapt themselves to dynamically-evolving market conditions. Renewable generation capacity continues to rise in the Western European market, bringing more intermittency to the power system. Meanwhile, conventional power plants, fuelled by coal, lignite or uranium, are being decommissioned more often among western countries, affecting the security of supply and reserve margin levels.
These changes need to be introduced and maintained by system operators, and each country has a slightly different approach to the challenges.

This is arguably the most unsettling time in history to be a CIO. The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace with advances in social media, mobility and big data. The proliferation of advanced robotics is just around the corner and the Internet of Things is connecting even the most mundane objects to the internet—and probably the corporate network. Back in the 1990s, most computer hackers were interested in gaining access to networks purely for kudos among their peers. Today hackers have monetized their skills and make their living from finding vulnerabilities in IT networks.

Content is king. But as the line between publishers and brands are blurring, all brands are finding themselves in both the content and the commerce games. And customers expect this.
As Alexis Maybank, founder of Gilt Groupe described it, “If I go into a restoration hardware store, for instance, I understand they’re selling that product, but I’m not just interested in seeing rows of lamps on shelves. I want to be shown how to set up a room and create a look. That’s what I’m craving: the ability to see a product, understand how to use it, and be given the tips and tools to imagine how that might change my interior.”
Consumers are very savvy today, and being able to attract and build a relationship with the consumer is key to brand success.This eBook will help you understand how to think like a publisher and turn your commerce site into a content machine.
The Issue: The Content and Commerce Divide
Commerce and digital marketing teams tell a familiar story. The commerce team launches an online store on a commerce platform. Commerce and IT focus on the platform and evolve it as the online business grows—focusing on basics such as PCI compliance and product information and expand-ing to more complex integrations. Now they want to add content, such as reviews and engaging media, that will inform and guide shoppers.
Meanwhile, the digital marketing team regards the online store as a missed branding and engagement opportunity and tries to jump in and contribute only to find that the system can’t meet their needs. So marketing goes outside to a digital agency, pays for a separate microsite, and takes their creative production needs elsewhere. And thus a classic divide is formed.
