With omni-channel retail hitting a fever pitch this year as retailers grasp the importance of serving customers however they like to shop, JDA Software congratulates 34 apparel industry customers including American Eagle Outfitters, Chico’s FAS, Inc., Christopher & Banks, PVH Corp. and Stage Stores named to “The Apparel Top 50 for 2014” list. These 34 JDA customers leverage a wide range of JDA’s powerful solutions to drive omni-channel retailing, including store operations, retail planning and distribution-centric supply chain solution suites.

To their credit, they pushed forward collectively with strategies for growth as well as measures to better integrate the components of their supply chains — while not losing sight of the crushing need to please the almighty consumer,” said Jordan Speer, editor in chief, Apparel magazine, and the author of the “Top 50” for the past seven years.
“With empowered consumers taking greater control of their shopping journey, success requires the entire retail ecosystem to be aligned and in sync with the evolving preferences and expectations of the digital consumer,” said Wayne Usie, senior vice president of retail, JDA Software. “These Top 50 retailers reengineered their business models to move forward in the new era of retail, and we are pleased to see so many of our customers excelling even in the toughest environment. We applaud them and wish them continued success.”

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

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.
