rsshardware IDC RSS alerts Filebase: Using Decentralized Blockchain Networks for Cloud Object Storage <P>This IDC Vendor Profile examines the decentralized storage market and a key provider within this market: Filebase. Filebase is an object storage platform powered by decentralized blockchain storage networks. Filebase uses a browser-based dashboard and an S3-compatible API to deploy, access, and manage data across several decentralized storage networks. Filebase does this by deploying clusters of application servers connected to multiple decentralized storage networks. These application servers allow Filebase to abstract all of the interactions with the underlying networks and node operators, leveraging erasure coding on a global scale and eliminating ingress while dramatically reducing charges and providing turnkey configurations that help developers place, migrate, or replicate object storage.</P> Vendor Profile Fri, 24 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Andrew Smith, Lucas Mearian IDC Survey: Toward Greater Resilience — Accelerating Enterprisewide DX and the Emergence of the Four C-Suite Archetypes <P>This IDC Survey provides insights into Asia/Pacific organizations' digital maturity and how their degree of digitalization leads to measurable business outcomes.

Olofson Zuora announces unified monetization capabilities which <P>One of the big challenges of monetizing subscriptions is selling an array of products that go along with subscriptions, such as GoPro selling cameras with video editing subscriptions. This typically requires two monetization streams (subscription management and transactional systems) with the goal of combining both subscription and products on one invoice for a great customer experience. Zuora can now monetize both streams eloquently, starting from CPQ, working with supply chain systems for inventory and shipping, creating a unified invoice, applying the right amount of revenue recognition, and ending with analytics that help the business understand the big picture of customer purchases. </P> IDC Link Fri, 24 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Mark Thomason
