Chassis technology today is one of the key functional areas responsible for overall performance in terms of vehicle dynamics, safety and fuel efficiency, and these functions can be seen as the key contributor to competitive advantage.

At its simplest the chassis can been defined as the frame of the vehicle plus its running gear' consisting of steering, suspension, wheels and brakes. However, today this description misses an essential point in that the chassis now is a complex set of components that are responsible for the vast majority of the ride, handling, comfort and safety. Furthermore, through the use of advanced materials and systems it has a significant role to play in reducing CO2 output.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
To manage complex web services with lots of calls to the cloud, many businesses have invested in Application Performance Management (APM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) tools. Together APM and NPM tools are essential aids in improving a business's infrastructure required to support an effective web experience... but they are missing a critical component - Internet visibility.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
