One of the most frustrating aspects of the measurement of severe pyroshock events is the acceleration offset that almost invariably occurs. Dependent on its magnitude, this can result in large, low-frequency errors in both shock response spectra (SRS) and velocity-based damage analyses.
Fortunately, recent developments in accelerometer technology, signal conditioning, and data acquisition systems have reduced these errors significantly. Best practices have been demonstrated to produce offset errors less than 0.25% of Peak-Peak value in measured near-field pyrotechnic accelerations: a remarkable achievement.
This paper will discuss the sensing technologies, including both piezoelectric and piezoresistive, that have come together to minimize these offsets. More important, it will document the many other potential contributors to these offsets. Included among these are accelerometer mounting issues, cable and connector sources, signal conditioning amplitude range/bandwidth, and digitizi
Most organizations are managing data sets that are larger than ever before, where many security offenses can be hidden and undetected, posing severe risks to business operations and the protection of sensitive, private information. Watch this video and learn how these exposures can be addressed with IBM's integrated Security Intelligence and Big Data solution.
Business Intelligence (BI) has become a mandatory part of every enterprise’s decision-making fabric. Unfortunately in many cases, with this rise in popularity, came a significant and disturbing complexity. Many BI environments began to have a myriad of moving parts: data warehouses and data marts deployed on multiple platforms and technologies – each requiring significant effort to ensure performance and support for the various needs and skill sets of the business resources using the environment. These convoluted systems became hard to manage or enhance with new requirements. To remain viable and sustainable, they must be simplified.
Fortunately today, we have the ability to build simpler BI technical environments that still support the necessary business requirements but without the ensuing management complexity. This paper covers what is needed to simplify BI environments and the technologies that support this simplification.
When you have voluminous data sets growing at an unabated rate, in formats that are unique and complex, how do you address your backup and recovery needs? While relying on traditional backup and recovery solutions can complicate matters, a better approach is to use a solution that enables your IT organization to make decisions that are more intelligent by integrating predictive analysis and an adaptive approach to backup and recovery.

While vulnerability assessments are essential, considering vulnerability data in a vacuum greatly limits your ability to prioritize your action plan in an effective way. Without the context of which vulnerabilities are the most severe, which are actively being targeted, which are on critical assets, etc, you may waste time checking things off the list without actually improving security. Join us for this session to learn how to integrate threat intelligence into your vulnerability management strategy.

This white paper will discuss how big data analytics, coupled with the right facilities and asset management software, can provide next-generation opportunities to improve facilities and asset management processes and reutnrs. It will examine how different organizations successfully use big data generated by their facilities and assets to help increase revenue, power operational efficiency, ensure service availability and mitigate risk. Most importantly, this white paper will reveal how your organization can leverage big data analytics to achieve similar benefits and transform the management of your organization's facilities and assets-and ultimately, your business.
Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can benefit from the expansive use of information technology (IT) just as much as their larger counterparts. Indeed, in many cases they have to, because to trade they need to interact with business partners of all sizes and IT failure affects not just internal users but those of third parties.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.
More than ever before, IT managers need to secure equipment and facilities against a variety of intrusive conditions that could cripple critical operations, resulting in system malfunctions, loss of data or intellectual property, damage to mission critical hardware or even theft of valuable physical assets. Such conditions often include environmental events, failure of air conditioning systems, power outages, and untoward human actions.
