A surge in new petrochemical production capacities across China, mainly for paraxylene, is likely to be the key factor that will heavily impact the sector globally, with US-China trade tensions next in line. Both factors have the potential to cause disruptions and change trade flows, while triggering fluctuations in margins. Volatile upstream markets, such as crude oil and naphtha, are not making these markets any more predictable either, and 2019 is set to be a year full of challenges. This special outlook report takes an in-depth look at the key themes expected to shape key Asian petrochemical markets in the months ahead.

In truth, it’s taken the corporate world a while to test, trust and commit to automation at work. To understand how far APAC/ANZ markets have advanced towards acting on these opportunities, the Shared Services and Outsourcing Network (SSON) surveyed the market and found that across the region corporations were forward thinking in building for scale, trusting technology and recognising the need to incorporate robotics into both IT infrastructure and enterprise strategy. This report explains how enterprises across APAC/ANZ are staying ahead of the global wave of RPA, the most popular solutions they are choosing, who the preferred consultants or 'integrators' are, the challenges, and how the digital workforce is being integrated into the human one.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
