It’s a completely new high-tech monocoque called Airtek from JPA Design, the people who redefined business class for the modern age a decade ago, and it’s going to change the way business class cabins look and feel.

What this new monocoque revolution means when you travel is more space, lighter seats leading to a smaller carbon footprint and more reliable seats with fewer moving parts to break.

“A monocoque is a term and approach inspired by the automotive racing industry. It’s really a unification of structure and other components that are around it — rather than having an independent metal structure, independent composite furniture, independent seat, independent frame, all these all these different parts — by unifying them into a single highly efficient composite body

Accelerating our future and growth strategy

Below is the message I shared with IBMers today.

Team:

On my first day as CEO, I made a commitment to the growth of IBM. I stated that a maniacal focus on our open hybrid cloud platform and AI capabilities is key to this outcome. Day by day, product by product, project by project—we are dedicated to helping our clients unlock the immense value this represents.

Building on the solid foundation Ginni has put in place, we are focused on accelerating our growth strategy and seizing the $1 trillion hybrid cloud opportunity.

As we work toward this goal, two things are becoming increasingly clear. First, we’re seeing a tremendous increase in client demand for our capabilities and expertise. Second, we’re noticing that client buying needs for application and infrastructure services are diverging.

Because of this, we have decided that the managed infrastructure services business of our GTS segment will become

Connecting Digital Fault Lines Reveals A Future Of Business Resilience

By David Sweetman, Senior Director, Global Product Marketing, SAP S/4HANA

(This story is Part 3 in the “The ERP Edge” series)

Businesses and their employees, suppliers, and sales partners can take a wide variety of paths before connecting with each other and delivering the experience customers expect. But the journey is rarely as straightforward as it should be. Instead, significant challenges, including unpredictable material availability, strict regulations, supplier risks, weather-induced transit rerouting, and fluctuating customer demands emerge unexpectedly and threaten the value chain’s stability. 

Today’s economic uncertainty is not making the ability to overcome such a complex landscape any easier. Now more than ever, companies must connect the digital fault lines of their disjointed applications, data sources, and processes to strike a sustainable balance between resource utilization and capital leverage throughout the value chain.
