Celesio AG Analyst Notes
On July 31, 2014, Celesio AG (Celesio) announced its H1 2014 financial results. The Company said that the period under review was characterized by intense competition in Germany, which coupled with unfavorable performance in Brazil, led its adjusted EBIT down by 1.7% YoY to €199.1 million in H1 2014. EBIT before adjustments showed a steep decline of 65.3% YoY at €70.4 million, primarily due to impairment loss on the goodwill of the Brazilian activities. Celesio's revenue in H1 2014 increased 1.8% YoY to €10.7 billion as strong performance in UK and Norway offset the continued decline in its revenue from France and Belgium. "All in all, despite strong headwinds, Celesio maintained its course well in the first half of 2014. We expect this trend to continue for the rest of the year," said Marc Owen, new Chairman of the Management Board of Celesio.

The solution will include a temperature monitoring tool, with live tracking of the shipments through an online platform.

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

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.
