Video quality can be measured in multiple ways, but the primary metrics – playback reliability and image quality – are
the most critical. Get these right, and content providers are on their way to winning the loyalty of online audiences and
driving monetization. Get them wrong, and viewers will defect in a heartbeat. For live-streaming events, such as sports,
where there’s can’t-miss fast action, the ante is raised even higher.
In this white paper, we’ll explore why online video quality matters and the specifics of how it should be measured. Get
a peek “under the hood” to understand the core elements of video delivery that contribute to high-quality viewing
experiences. Most importantly, see why the choice of a content delivery partner is essential to your online video success.
DPI software is made to inspect packets at high wire speeds and a critical factor is the throughput and resources required. Keeping the amount of resources that integrated DPI and application classification technology requires low is critical. The fewer cores (on a multi-core processor) and the less on-board memory an engine needs, the better. Multi-threading provides almost linear scalability on multi-core systems. In addition, highly-optimized flow tracking is required for handling millions of concurrent subscribers.
"Since a decade the market has seen an outburst of data. With Managing and Securing Data is Crucial. With 3.8 Billion mobile users and 24 Zetta bytes of data created, and 100% attacks that target username and password credentials, managing and securing data has become a crucial and the most critical aspect for almost every Business.
Oracle’s SPARC M7 processor, with Oracle’s Software in Silicon technology, is the industry’s most advanced multi thread, multi-core processor with unique capabilities for information security. It sets the foundation for mission-critical cloud based server infrastructure with unprecedented levels of security, efficiency, and performance.
Data is growing at amazing rates and will continue this rapid rate of growth. New techniques in data processing and analytics including AI, machine and deep learning allow specially designed applications to not only analyze data but learn from the analysis and make predictions.
Computer systems consisting of multi-core CPUs or GPUs using parallel processing and extremely fast networks are required to process the data. However, legacy storage solutions are based on architectures that are decades old, un-scalable and not well suited for the massive concurrency required by machine learning. Legacy storage is becoming a bottleneck in processing big data and a new storage technology is needed to meet data analytics performance needs.
Larger organizations run into problems when monolithic architectures cannot be scaled, upgraded or maintained easily as they grow over time. Microservices architecture is an answer to that problem. It is a software architecture where complex tasks are broken down into small processes that operate independently and communicate through language-agnostic APIs.
Finance teams today are working harder than ever before. The demands of the global and digital economy have multiplied the finance function’s core responsibilities. At the same time, CFOs are expected to partner with their C-suite colleagues to shape long-term business strategy. When finance chiefs do their jobs well, they make a powerful impact, not only within their own department but also on their company’s overall performance amplifying their importance to the enterprise.

Energy companies are being challenged on multiple fronts. Core expectations require the delivery of safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. Business models are being challenged by alternatives such as renewables and consumers demanding more sophisticated interactions through social and mobile.
Energy companies need to:
Disruptively innovate business processes through analytics driven operational excellence to increase agility and responsiveness, reduce operational costs and improve asset reliability
Assume the role of energy integrator to optimally balance supply and demand points
Deliver a 360-degree customer-of-one experience to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, reduce costs, and improve management of energy demand
Flying blind at 100G
It might go something like this: Your company is a voracious consumer of bandwidth – perhaps a very large enterprise, a research lab, or a service or content provider of some description. Today you are running multiple 10Gbps network connections in the core of your network, but these links are rapidly approaching capacity. An upgrade in the not-too-distant future to 40/100G ultra-high-speed links now looks inevitable.
Today’s thriving High-Tech sector is driven by shrinking product lifecycles, rapid innovation, distributed engineering/manufacturing—and highly demanding customer expectations. The industry needs to deliver on multiple fronts, including:
• Embed customer-centric innovation throughout the lifecycle: Only with customer experience at the core can companies stay ahead.
• Tame ideas into executable products: Detecting early trends and using customer feedback is vital.
• Manage complexity better: Increasing visibility of all product data helps build and manage digital models to use in every business function from R&D to field service.
• Create relevant connected systems: High-Tech innovators use IoT for an ongoing dialogue of customers, devices and manufacturers.
• Provide agility to compete on software, hardware and service: Customers want value from every interaction.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ
