The traditional view of the relationship between business and the arts is
very much a one-way affair: organisations may endorse, fund or publicise
the arts but the arts have nothing to offer from a business perspective. The
Value of Arts for Business challenges this view by showing how the arts,
in the form of Arts-based Initiatives (ABIs), can be used to enhance valuecreation
capacity and boost business performance. The book introduces
and explains three models that show how organisations can successfully
implement and manage ABIs.

Power management is, literally and metaphorically, the hottest area in
computing and computing appliances.
In 1965, while working at Fairchild Semiconductor, Gordon Moore
predicted that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit would
double approximately every two years. Moore’s law, as his observation
has been dubbed, has so far been the foundation of the business of per-
sonal computing and its derivative applications.
The scientific literature suggests that the best unit
to assess ecosystems is the 'socio-ecological system
(SES)' (Gallopin, 1991, Glaser, 2008). SES integrates
ecosystem functions and dynamics as well as
human activities and the interactions of all these.
The SES is equivalent to the SNA's institutional
unit. Considering the production of ecosystem
services, and in particular provisioning services,
SESs are more or less homogenous.
The veterinary sector has witnessed considerable change in recent years, and this has had a
significant impact on the wider veterinary business landscape. Most noteworthy, perhaps,
has been the change at the global level in the focus of animal welfare, with a growth in
small/companion animal care and a reduction in large animal work (Lowe, 2009). This has
resulted in increased competition amongst veterinary practices and the recognition that
veterinary services need to be appropriately marketed.
Against this backdrop, and by way of providing valuable context for some of the more
clinically oriented chapters in this book, our chapter considers some of the recent changes
and emerging trends within the broader veterinary sector and the actual and potential
impact of these on the veterinary business landscape.
rapidly changed as the situation dictates. This type of continuous application adaptation ﬁts the constantly changing business landscape perfectly.
IBM WebSphere sMash Development Process
IBM WebSphere sMash has been developed using a community-driven commercial development process. This means that most of the development efforts are done in the open and are transparent to all parties through a community-based website. The community website hosts the IBM WebSphere sMash incubator project, Project Zero.
The changes discussed above under the three headings of the agricultural sector, the gender
shift and veterinary education have significant implications for the veterinary business
landscape across the broader veterinary sector, impacting beyond the practice wing of the
profession. As mentioned at the outset of this chapter, to date, robust academic attention has
not been paid to the implications of changes in these areas. Such implications will now be
discussed under the relevant headings below. ...

Media is at the very heart of society and business. As the economy inexorably shifts from the tangible to the intangible, media in its many forms is accounting for an ever-increasing proportion of value created. Over the last decade we have seen many new media emerge, many new ways not just to disseminate content in all its forms, but also to interact, invite contribution, build relationships, and engage in conversations.
Buyers no longer buy the way they did ten, five and even two years ago. The sad truth is that most companies don’t realize this…yet. Changes in technology, distribution, and buyer behavior have shifted the landscape and created an opportunity for businesses to communicate directly with consumers. This eBook shares the reasons for this evolution. It details how you, as a marketing professional,
Technologists have the ideas. Lawyers know the rules. But for business man-
agers and investors, rules and ideas do not readily combine into a strategic
vision. No longer is intellectual property (IP) just a necessary expense for
large technology companies. Competing and succeding in today’s market-
place requires an in-depth understanding of IP – its use as a weapon, as a
shield, and as a monetizable asset.
Piggy Bank allows the user to tag each information item with several keywords, thereby ﬁtting
it simultaneously into several organizational schemes. For example, a photograph can be tagged
both as “sepia” and “portrait”, as it ﬁts into both the “effect” organizational scheme (among
“black & white,” “vivid,” etc.) and the “topic” scheme (among “landscape,” “still life,” etc.).
The research evidence furthermore shows that social media offer specific opportunities for the
four strategic challenges of European Education and Training policies in the years leading up
to 2020 (European Commission, 2008g) and can thus contribute to modernising Education

approaches, provide new formats for creative expression, and encourage learners and teachers
to experiment with different, innovative, ways of articulating their thoughts and ideas. The

Americans have always loved risk-takers, the man or woman
with ambition and vision who goes for broke. “Boldness of
enterprise is the foremost cause of its rapid progress, its strength
and its greatness,” Tocqueville wrote as he surveyed the nation’s
business landscape well over a century ago. Although American
business and financial life reminded this French observer of “a
vast lottery,” he marveled at the extent to which Americans “encourage
and do honor to boldness in commercial speculations.”...
