The PwC Shareholder Value Index determines a company's performance by taking into account both increases and decreases in share price, dividends, share buy-backs and new share issues.  Because it is based on the investment of $100 USD, movements in exchange rates also impact the global index and specific company returns.  The result is one benchmark that measures shareholder value for publicly listed automotive companies. 

"It is an honor to acknowledge the 2013 Global Shareholder Value Award winners for their achievement," said Jeff Zaleski, PwC automotive transaction services partner.  "These leading companies have recognized the importance of providing customers with the innovative products and services they want while meeting a growing global demand.  Despite the challenges over the last several years, these companies have successfully focused on creating value for their shareholders."

Shareholder Value Indices have been reported in Automotive News on a quarterly basis since January 2000.  The 2013 complete year-end results and Automotive Shareholder Award winners will be included in the January 20 print edition of Automotive News at www.autonews.com and can also be found at www.pwc.com/auto on that date.

* In order to be eligible for the one year award, companies had to have positive returns over the three year period.

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists l...
Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications.

Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
