Advances in deep neural networks have ignited a new wave of algorithms and tools for data scientists to tap into their data with artificial intelligence (AI). With improved algorithms, larger data sets, and frameworks such as TensorFlow, data scientists are tackling new use cases like autonomous driving vehicles and natural language processing. Read this technical white paper to learn reasons for and benefits of an end-to-end training system. It also shows performance benchmarks based on a system that combines the NVIDIA® DGX-1™, a multi-GPU server purpose-built for deep learning applications and FlashBlade, a scale-out, high performance, dynamic data hub for the entire AI data pipeline.
We all know that employee engagement is important. Employees that are aligned with their goals, aware of their performance gaps, and motivated to improve, perform better. It’s stating the obvious. The big question is how to get there, and whether technology can help us do this at scale. This is where most digital motivation initiatives hit a wall. A new breed of next generation performance and feedback systems are attempting to do just that: creating and maintaining a continuous personalized conversation between employees and managers with regards to performance, development and goals.

Mobile Workforce Management solutions enable companies to deliver superior field service and customer satisfaction (see Part I, Setting The Stage For Best Practices Service Performance). However, a successful Mobile Workforce Management transformation is dependent upon many factors beyond simply deploying new technology. It requires a full understanding of the overall business objectives, a keen understanding of historical processes, a standard system of key performance metrics along with the organization’s current performance in those metrics, and effective communication to ensure organizational readiness and project execution.
This case study highlights how a leading transportation firm uses executive financial incentives to insure the highest system uptime for its customers. With the need to keep thousands of vehicles and employees on the move and process millions of daily transactions, keeping mission critical systems running is essential for financial performance.
Most businesses today are under increasing pressure to respond to change expeditiously—to adapt to the ongoing needs and demands of their customers, the changing competitive landscape, and the evolution of the marketplace. An organization’s CRM system can either effectively support or hinder their business agility and capacity to respond to change, affecting overall corporate performance and customer satisfaction.
Increasing power demands and space limitations in the data center have begun to transition server virtualization technologies from luxuries to necessities. Server virtualization provides a path toward server consolidation that results in significant power and space savings, while also offering high availability and system portability. Today, vendors are building hardware and software platforms that can deliver virtualization solutions at near-native performance.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

NPMD solutions are typically not directly involved in the actual card cardholder transaction. However, given that many can potentially capture and transmit cardholder data they must be viewed as an integral part of a business’ PCI DSS compliance strategy, especially when investigating data breaches for the purposes of reporting or remediation.
Therefore, beyond satisfying your service delivery monitoring and troubleshooting requirements, be sure to verify your NPMD solution protects cardholder data and aids your efforts in PCI DSS compliance.
Given the evolution of past major advances in wireless-LAN technologies, it should come as no surprise that products based on the still-in-development IEEE 802.11ac standard are now appearing across the board, from residence to enterprise. Just as was the case with 802.11g and 802.11n, the standards-development process is now far enough along that the semiconductor community is shipping in volume, the Wi-Fi Alliance has been able to issue an initial interoperability specification, and system-vendor products offering up to 1.3 Gbps are now available at prices very close to those of 802.11n APs but with on the order of a 30% improvement in price/performance on a spectral-efficiency basis and from 100% to more than 200% in performance overall.
