With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.

Metal 3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing process. Complex shapes, enhanced functional properties and lightweighting are some of the unique benefits delivered by additive manufacturing (AM). While there is plenty of information about printing techniques, materials and hardware, a critical element is rarely mentioned: the need for an integrated software solution for metal additive manufacturing. It takes more than a 3D CAD model and a good printer to get a successful print. Metal AM software handles all preparation and optimization actions that are required for a printed part to meet the desired CAD model specifications. This ebook provides an overview of the preparation and optimization process for AM, explains the importance of software to the profitability of any additive manufacturing business and suggests what to look for when researching AM software solutions.

Investment casting is a precise manufacturing methodology that delivers value across industries, from mechanical, automotive and aerospace parts to intricate dental work, jewelry and sculpture. For centuries the trade-off for smooth and accurate investment casted parts has been high costs and long casting pattern lead times. Now the evolution of parts is accelerating dramatically in many industries resulting in shorter product life cycles and lower volumes of casted parts between cycles. Waiting for tooling for obsolete parts for aging aircraft also mean delays for aircraft to be repaired, costing time and money. Demand for faster foundry production is increasing in all industries and foundries need to be ready to respond. To find out how 3D Sysytems can help your business, download this eBook today.

Software development projects have a long and storied history of failure. In fact, 82% of projects today run late, while errors cost 80% of the average project budget to fix (The Standish Group). Certainly no other business process today is allowed to endure this sort of failure. But software development is often left to chance, despite the significant cost and importance of the process.

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies. Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology. But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business. A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.
