In this report, VSI applies HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examines performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.
VSI tested the lane keeping system with and without map data on a local road in 3 scenarios:
Lane lines expanding into a turn or exit lane
An intersection without lane lines
A widening in the lane
The results show that in all scenarios, the computer-vision-only lane keeping systems got confused and made errors in a vehicle’s trajectory when lane markings were out of the ordinary or invisible. Faced with the same road conditions, the map-based lane keeping system stayed within the desired trajectory outperforming the compute- vision-only systems.
This report proves that using a lane model from an HD map can solve common issues involved in computer-vision-only lane keeping.
The goal of usability testing, simply put, is to make sure that a user can complete the tasks they are expected to
complete. Usability testing doesn’t test whether or not the functions of the application, website or connected device work correctly, but rather that a user intuitively understands how to perform these tasks — and how easy or difficult it was to do so.
With usability testing, “close enough” won’t cut it. A product may have a superior architecture, a great set of features, good performance, scalability and a number of other positive attributes. However, all of this effort is wasted if the user experience is inadequate. An application, website or connected device that is not user-friendly is just as bad
as a buggy version and can lead to diminished revenue, product abandonment or a total failure. An application with poor usability can also negatively affect a brand

In response to the federal government’s Cloud First initiative, agencies are moving to the cloud at an accelerated rate - moving on-premise applications, data and workloads to cloud infrastructure and adopting SaaS technologies like Salesforce, ServiceNow and Workday.
What many in government have found is that integration and looking for government integration solutions has emerged as a stumbling block that has prevented government from realizing many of the benefits of moving to the cloud. This is because while a growing number of applications adopted by government are in the cloud, the underlying integration technologies connecting these applications are still based on-premise, meaning that government IT teams still have to spend time provisioning and maintaining infrastructure to ensure that their middleware doesn’t become a performance bottleneck for their applications.
Join us for a conversation with MuleSoft CISO Kevin Paige on why cloud integration is key for agencies to succe

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their next-generation datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are too beneficial to your business to ignore. That’s why flash is becoming the standard for new storage investments.
Dans cette ère de disruption numérique incessante, les entreprises doivent améliorer leur agilité pour être prêtes à saisir les opportunités. Pour certains observateurs, les technologies du cloud semblaient être la solution idéale, capables d'apporter des réponses en matière d'agilité, d'évolutivité et de coût. Mais après avoir adopté ces technologies, les entreprises ont souvent constaté que les caractéristiques de performances, de sécurité et de conformité du cloud ne répondaient pas pleinement à leurs besoins. En outre, une idée reçue tenace laissait à penser que le cloud public était moins coûteux que le cloud privé, alors que nous savons maintenant que ce n'est pas toujours le cas. Les entreprises les plus avisées ont réalisé depuis longtemps que la plus grande agilité est proposée par les solutions d'informatique hybride, qui associent des services hors site et sur site.

The world of storage is being transformed by the maturing of flash arrays, an approach to storage that uses multiple, solid state flash memory drives instead of spinning hard disk drives. An all-flash array performs the same functions as traditional spinning disks but in a fraction of the time required and in more compact form factors. Given its superior performance in certain contexts, all-flash arrays are experiencing strong industry adoption. However, best practices and a true understanding of key success factors for all- flash storage are still emerging. This paper is intended to educate you on best practices based on real user experience drawn from ITCentralStation.com. We offer all-flash user advice in selecting and building the business case for a flash array storage solution.

Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.
As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center.
In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
Business users expect immediate access to data, all the
time and without interruption. But reality does not always
meet expectations. IT leaders must constantly perform
intricate forensic work to unravel the maze of issues that
impact data delivery to applications. This performance
gap between the data and the application creates a
bottleneck that impacts productivity and ultimately
damages a business’ ability to operate effectively.
We term this the “app-data gap.”
