Corporate bonds that span the BBB to BB rated space are referred to as "crossover bonds." By focusing on this space, investors can maintain a higher quality rating while adding relatively higher yield for the level of credit risk.Read more >
As organizations strive to identify and realize the value in Big Data, many now seek more agile and capable analytic systems. Apache Hadoop is a software framework that provides measurable savings and value for storage and data processing at tremendous scale. While many have piloted Hadoop as a data repository for simple workloads, there is much more value that can be created from Hadoop by leveraging the data in the platform more, to interact with the data and uncover new business insights.Read more >

What does it mean to have an enterprise-grade cloud communications solution? Many providers may claim to offer it, but not all can deliver. And if always-on, reliable and global communications are mission-critical for your business, you need to ensure your cloud provider is making the "grade".
In this complimentary webinar, we will discuss 8 standard elements that all companies should look out for when exploring a cloud communications solution, including:
The flexibility to extend international services and global reach
Potential risks of downtime and non-compliance when solutions are not enterprise-grade
The ability to integrate with contact center, CRM and productivity applications
Who should attend:
CIOs, Directors of IT or Infrastructure
Anyone interested in unifying their communications and collaboration infrastructure onto a single, secure, reliable platform – simply
Those seeking a way to replace outdated or disparate legacy systems across multiple locations.
Following recent volatility in credit markets, David Simner, portfolio manager for the European Investment Grade franchise, will discuss why he remains constructive on the asset class in 2016. In this live webcast he will remind viewers of his investment philosophy, how the portfolios have evolved through this volatility and current themes across the funds, paying particular attention to FF Euro Short Term Bond and FF Euro Corporate Bond. There will be the opportunity to ask Dave questions on any of the topics covered at the end of the webcast.Read more >
The Robeco Global Credit Bonds Fund is aimed at investors seeking higher yields than those offered by government bonds, but without the higher risk of a pure high-yield corporate bond fund.
The fund invests in the global credits markets with investment grade credit acting as the core of the global strategy. It does have the freedom to invest into other asset classes within the fixed income credit universe.
The fund is managed by an experienced team with a proven track record t capable of generating good performance in both rising and falling bond markets.
After a year of strong performance for fixed income, plus expectations of tighter US monetary policy in 2017, conventional wisdom suggests that bond markets are poised for a correction. But we find lessons from 2004 that point to the contrary. Join Robert Vanden Assem and Jonathan Davis from PineBridge Investments’ Developed Markets Fixed Income team as they discuss:
- Similarities between the last rate hike cycle in 2004 and today
- What’s different this time around
- Our outlook for fixed income, as well as potential opportunities for investors
Carrier grade functionality, a tried and true concept in the telecommunications industry, has kept the network up an running for years. As we place calls, stream video, and send data of all kinds, we’ve come to expect the network to be “always on”. But now, telecom is entering a new era of communications driven by the Internet of Things (IoT). New technologies, bigger challenges, and the need for more services are changing the game. And now, the network must evolve to serve as the critical infrastructure supporting billions of connected sensors, devices, and machines sending and receiving data and information. Emerging as a key enabler of this new critical network infrastructure is carrier grade network virtualization and network functions virtualization (NFV).
Join Wind River for a lively discussion on what it means to be carrier grade in the era of the IoT. We’ll take a look at the five characteristics of traditional carrier grade networks and how each is evolving and being applied to NFV. We’ll also take look at the different NFV use cases requiring carrier grade functionality and how network equipment providers and service providers are using these implementations to build the critical infrastructure supporting the yet to be defined world of IoT.
This session provides detailed insights into the technical facts and value proposition of vSAN as a storage platform for hyper-covered infrastructures (HCI). We will cover the scalable architecture and capabilities of the platform. The webcast also focuses on the new data services such deduplication, compression, erasure coding and QoS, which are aimed at today’s enterprise use cases. We will conclude with a technology roadmap that goes beyond traditional vSphere use cases and will make the case for HCI and vSAN as a platform architecture for Cloud-Native Applications.Read more >

Got cloud? If you’re an SMB, you’ve already been there, done that. But are you really extracting maximum value out of your cloud hosted solutions?
SMBs use an average of five hosted services, between IaaS, hosted email and collaboration and business applications – and that number is expected to climb to almost ten cloud services by next year. Everyone’s dabbling, but SMBs crave the cloud sophistication of their enterprise-grade competitors.
- How are enterprises pivoting so quickly to respond to operational goals and drive bottom line results?
- How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
- Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
- And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?
We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.
