SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- NKK Switches, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electromechanical switching devices, and CADENAS PARTsolutions, a global provider of online product configurators, today announced the migration of their 3D switch library and configurator directly to NKK's website, www.nkkswitches.com.
As part of NKK's online switch library and configurator, the upgrade places the 3D configurator directly on product pages to give the most up to date information and a streamlined customer experience. The upgrade also allows users to stay on NKK's website, enabling engineers to easily navigate, discover and download the information they need to make the design decisions that give them a competitive edge.
"This improved embedded design not only provides a better user experience, but by making the 3D library and configurator exist on NKK's website users can more easily download and integrate complex models into their designs at no charge," said Jennifer Lintner, marketing manager NKK Switches. "NKK keeps the same quality of content that is available through the CADENAS PARTsolutions configurator but it becomes a much more integrated experience."
"Today, it's all about digital user experience, making it easy for people to find the product and part information they need, in a quick and intuitive way. We have customers who have seen a 300 percent increase in digital product downloads simply by moving their catalog to an embedded design within their website. When you simplify the process for customers to access the information they need, usage increases significantly," said Tim Thomas, CEO, CADENAS PARTsolutions. "As a result of these changes, NKK's customers will better be able to search and find the switches they need to integrate into their designs."
Since 2009, NKK has been systematically expanding their online 3D switch library and configurator to include a full range of NKK's product lines. Design engineers use 3D models to improve design productivity and reduce the time needed to redraw standard parts. Approximately 90 percent of the company's product lines are available as 3D models in the catalog. CAD files for remaining products will be made available upon request.
3D CAD models are available in a variety of popular CAD file formats including Catia, I-DEAS, Inventor, Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks, and Unigraphics, as well as universal file formats such as STEP, IGES, and SAT and others.
The 3D switch library and configurator may be accessed on the NKK website, the Autodesk® Supplier Content Center, Machine Design Magazine CAD library, and other online libraries. NKK products will also be available within PARTsolutions 3D Part Catalog Management solutions, allowing NKK Switches to introduce their products to new prospects worldwide independent of the CAD technology they may be using.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
