    After 135 years in business, fourth-generation owner John Hummel had seen numerous advances in technology benefit his family’s company, Hummel Integrated Marketing Solutions. But he never could have predicted how revolutionary the Konica Minolta AccurioJet KM-1 UV inkjet press would be. “I had been operating my digital shop with toner-based digital presses from another vendor,” Hummel told us, “but became increasingly dissatisfied with both performance and pricing model. I’ve had my eye on the AccurioJet KM-1 since it first came to market and felt that the time was now right to make the switch to UV-curable inkjet.”

    IaaS, PaaS, And SaaS: “as a Service”

    Breaking Down Common Cloud Terminology

    , Sr. Marketing Manager

    You hear them all the time, something “as a service,” but what do these terms mean and how are they significant to your business? Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) are merely a few of the innumerable cloud computing offerings available today. Thoroughly understanding their unique benefits, purpose, and ways they can be used [together or independent of one other] can grant insight into optimally implementing them for business success and longevity. According to a recent Forbes study, 30% of all IT budgets were allocated to cloud computing over the past year, where 48% was spent on SaaS, 30% on IaaS and 21% on PaaS. (more…)

    , Sr. Marketing Manager

    Fueling Innovation With Diversity

    10 Tips To Create A More Inclusive Team Environment

    , Senior Vice President, Human Resources

    One of my favorite things to do during summer weekends is to go down the shore* to visit friends and share hysterical, mostly embarrassing memories, from long ago.  The stories never get old and, in fact, become a little better with time.  Hours spent with my friends are familiar, warm and easy – like being suspended in time.  They remind me of the slow, lazy days of summer when I was a kid and the biggest decision was a bomb pop or toasted almond.  My friends and I have so much in common – our age, values, education and earnings.  We like the same food, music, and many of the same activities.  Our visits are a nostalgic and comfortable time for everyone involved.
