New Wilcom and Corel products provide businesses with faster workflows, competitive advantage and new multi-decoration possibilities

The integration of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suite into Wilcom DecoStudio and EmbroideryStudio has changed the way that embroidery is designed and has become the ideal smart tools for embroiderers and garment decorators. Now Wilcom and Corel have gone a step further with significant enhancements to how graphic and stitch files interact including the ability to convert not only vector designs but also bitmaps to embroidery. In addition, new algorithms provide even greater stitch quality for more efficient production and beautiful results.

"Wilcom and Corel have been working together now for over five years to develop significant enhancements to how graphic design and embroidery digitizing can interact," says Bill Wilson, CTO and co-founder of Wilcom International. "Wilcom's unique all-in-one .EMB design file format is the basis of a powerful ecosystem for everything needed in embroidery and multi-decoration design and production. With the latest e3 release, there are over 200 new features or enhancements based on excellent feedback from the Wilcom community of designers and digitizers."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
