Welcome to KPMG’s third annual report tracking developments in China’s pension industry. This is a topic of great economic significance. As the world’s most populous country, China has an ageing society and is developing the infrastructure to take care of a growing number of elderly people. The topic also has business significance, especially for financial companies able to find opportunities in the fast-growing pension sector.
This report updates and builds on our findings from last year. That report identified sector convergence as one of the most distinct features of the Chinese pension industry, as well as highlighted several strategic themes that will influence its long-term development. In the pages that follow, we explain the most recent developments and their strategic implications.
Hyperconvergence is now at the core of many IT infrastructures. No matter the size of your organization, you need to protect infrastructure, applications, and the data necessary to run your business and compete at its best.
There are several solutions to protect your data, retrieve and reuse it when necessary. Ease of use, speed, and efficiency are at the base of modern backup tools, but there is now more to take into account if you want to transform a liability into an asset.
In this free 1 hour webinar, GigaOm analyst Enrico Signoretti will be joined by Alan Conboy from Scale Computing and Jon McCarrick from Acronis to talk about modern data protection strategies and solutions aimed at simplifying infrastructure while increasing the value of data.
In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:
Why data protection should be integrated into your HCI
Data protection options: Snapshots, backups, DR and beyond
New threats and new solutions
Backup as a tool to make more of your data

Businesses are using hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to untangle today’s big IT challenges. HCI can help you accelerate workloads, meet growing storage needs, gain the commercial benefits of hybrid cloud and more – all with easy-to-manage building blocks.
A new era of business reinvention is dawning. Organizations are facing an unprecedented convergence of technological, social and regulatory forces. As artificial intelligence (AI), automation, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and 5G become pervasive, their combined impact will reshape standard business architectures. The “outside-in” digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the “inside-out” potential of data exploited with these exponential technologies.
If procurement organisations are to sustain their value to the enterprise, they must pivot to new operating models that embed customer-centricity in their technology, process and people.
Read this report to discover:
• the four convergence trends driving change and opportunity for procurement organisations
• the nine differentiators for customer-centric procurement leaders
• how and why you should be leveraging CX procurement technology."
The most problematic scenario engineers encounter when analyzing large deformation
solutions using the finite element method is convergence issues due to mesh distortion. This
is typical, for example, during simulation of elastomeric sealing or metal forming applications.
Complex nonlinearities due to mechanical and/or thermal behavior arise in such cases from
inherent material properties, geometric changes and establishment or separation of contact
interfaces. The manual rezoning feature which was released in ANSYS 10.0 gave analysts a
highly customizable, albeit labor-intensive, workflow to change and repair the mesh whenever
needed after an unconverged solution. However, since the release of ANSYS 15.0, the latest
“NonLinear ADaptivity” (NLAD) feature and accompanying enhancements are as automatic as
one can imagine for repairing mesh distortion, overcoming convergence difficulties, refining
the mesh to capture local phenomenon and achieving the “true” design solution.

Nutanix created hyperconverged infrastructure years ago
because there was an urgent need for innovation within enterprise
infrastructure. IT silos, management complexity, and gross
inefficiencies were undermining the customer experience.
It was time for a paradigm shift, which is why Nutanix melded webscale
engineering with consumer-grade design to fundamentally
transform the way organizations consume and leverage technology.

IT organizations everywhere are undergoing significant transformation to keep pace with the needs of their businesses. They’re tasked with
consolidating data centers and migrating both workloads and data to the cloud. The transition has been easier for some than others.
As hybrid architectures increasingly become the norm, how are enterprises gaining complete visibility, simplifying management, and making use
of all of their data—both on-premises and in the cloud?
Five enterprises explain how they’ve replaced multiple products that created legacy data silos with Cohesity – a single, hyperconverged softwaredefined
platform with native Microsoft Azure integration for simplified secondary data and applications. For them, Cohesity and Azure together
boost IT agility while lowering costs, solving critical secondary data challenges from long-term retention, storage tiering, test/dev, disaster
recovery and cloud-native backup in a proven hybrid cloud architecture.

"Flash has permeated enterprise storage in small, medium-sized, and large enterprises as well as
among webscale customers like cloud and service providers. It is available in a variety of different
system architectures, including internal storage, hyperconverged and converged platforms, and shared
storage arrays. Revenue driven by shared storage arrays, of both the hybrid flash array (HFA) and the
all-flash array (AFA) type, is much larger than from other segments today and will continue to dominate
enterprise storage spend through at least 2020."

What started as “digital” transformation has blossomed into a trend that’s driving organizations to become “digital businesses.” Using emerging technologies like analytics, machine learning, and an on-demand approach to delivering IT services, many organizations are moving to a cloud model to implement this transformation. Organizations that leverage the cloud can accelerate product development, speed innovation, and empower workers to be more productive.
In this white paper, we look at five of the critical use cases currently driving HCI deployments and why they will continue to benefit from HCI in 2019 and beyond. Hyper-converged infrastructure has emerged as a breakthrough IT technology over the past several years. With the right HCI solution, IT teams can lower costs, increase agility and reduce complexity—leveraging a modern software-defined IT platform that provides a seamless path to hybrid cloud. The reality is that IT teams have been so pleased with the benefits they are already reaping with HCI that they are looking for new ways to use it to power key initiatives such as digital transformation. This trend is being accelerated by advances in performance, ease of use and functionality, driven by technology innovations such as Intel Optane memory and VMware vSAN.
