MONTREAL, Aug. 18, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Argex Titanium, Inc. (TSX: RGX), ("Argex" or the "Company"), an emerging producer of high-grade titanium dioxide (TiO2) used as white pigment in paint, plastic, paper, cosmetics and other applications, has engaged Liolios Group to lead a new strategic investor relations and financial communications program.
"Since I joined Argex a little less than a year ago, we have successfully transitioned the company from the R&D stage to having the unique, patent-protected ability to safely and economically produce highly-valuable titanium dioxide," said Glen Kayll, CFO of Argex. "Our collaboration and long-term supply agreement with PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) validates our 'game-changing' TiO2 extraction process, and we are now focused on the construction of our first industrial-scale titanium dioxide plant."
"Given this groundbreaking technology and our rapid advance toward initial commercial production, we believe our shareholders would benefit from an experienced team of investor relations professionals to help us navigate the global capital markets and increase awareness of our story in the financial community," continued Kayll. "Liolios Group brings to Argex a proven track record of helping Canadian-listed companies like ours enter the U.S. capital markets to enhance shareholder value by delivering the right message to the right audience, and building high-quality, long-term relationships in the U.S. investment community."
Liolios Group will work closely with Argex management to develop and deploy a comprehensive capital markets strategy and campaign. The campaign will include effective messaging and corporate positioning, strategic advisory, and introductions to investors and key influencers in the financial community. It will also include scheduling road shows and financial conferences for management over the next several months.

About the Innovation
The innovation in Argex's TiO2 process lies in how the equipment is used, combining well-known technology islands with solvents and chemistry to make TiO2 pigments and high value by-products. Argex's environmental footprint is reduced as a result of saleable by-products and minimal inert tailings, thereby minimizing costs associated with waste treatment and disposal. Further innovation lies in the ability to run the process at low temperatures and atmospheric pressure.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

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.

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

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. 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...
