Team Novo Nordisk er et globalt sportsteam med flere end 100 cykelryttere, triatleter og løbere, som alle har diabetes, hvor det professionelle cykelhold er flagskibet. Formålet med Team Novo Nordisk er at udbrede kendskabet til diabetes og give diabetikere ny viden og inspiration i deres dagligdag.

Trofeo Laigueglia er blandt de indledende løb i den Internationale Cykelunions (UCI) Europe Tour 2013-kalender. Løbet er Team Novo Nordisks første mulighed for at udfordre den nye trup, der består af 17 professionelle ryttere med diabetes fra 10 forskellige lande.

"Team Novo Nordisk er en del af vores mangeårige Changing Diabetes® program, der har til formål at skabe opmærksomhed om og bremse den globale diabetesepidemi, som påvirker 371 millioner mennesker i hele verden og deres familier," siger Jakob Riis, koncerndirektør i Novo Nordisk.

Trofeo Laigueglia er et årligt tilbagevendende endagsløb på 196,5 km, som i 2013 kan fejre sit 50-års jubilæum.

"Vi glæder os til vores første cykelløb som et 100% diabeteshold," siger Phil Southerland, medstifter og CEO for Team Novo Nordisk. "Når man bliver diagnosticeret med diabetes, tror mange mennesker, at de ikke længere er i stand til at leve et normalt liv og realisere deres drømme, men Team Novo Nordisk viser, at med god diabetesregulering er alting muligt."

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
