Performance management is a subset of Performance Engineering, an emerging computer science practice which strives to build performance into the design and architecture of a system, prior to the onset of actual coding effort. Any technology which is measured can be managed easily. Find out how in this paper.

Companies who use 3D printing in the design process have a distinct competitive advantage due to its speed and ability to facilitate design communication and concurrent engineering throughout an organization.
As if the selection of manufacturer weren't enough, many encoders offered in today's marketplace are highly configurable. Resolution, shaft size, seal options and connector variations all confront the design engineer with serious choices. Output type is equally important. In this paper, we'll cover some of the more typical applications and common output types.
In most drilling applications encoders are used to provide position and speed feedback for proper control of equipment like top drives and pipe racking systems. However, these electronic devices require special attention when used in hazardous environments such as a drilling platform. In this paper, we discuss ways to make encoders suitable for hazardous duty.
Ethernet communications is rapidly gaining popularity in industrial applications because it enables the real-time exchange of information between processing equipment and companies' Ethernet-based management systems. The emergence of protocols such as EtherNet/IP enables engineers to attain the advantages of using Ethernet in industrial applications.
While IPSec VPN implementation has traditionally been viewed as expensive and time-consuming for large organizations, Quocirca has found that the next generation of IPSec VPN technologies has addressed these management headaches through automation, integrated security policy management, and centralized control.
Shrinking product development cycles coupled with demanding product requirements and increasingly complex design implementations can overwhelm a design team. The technical risk of employing new, complex, high-speed processor technology can often deter a design group from incorporating new technology in their product designs.
As electronic product designs age, component parts become increasingly difficult to obtain. Component buyers may experience difficulty in obtaining key parts within the design. Component part prices may increase. A point comes when component parts begin going end-of-life at an alarming rate. Quick fixes are no longer sufficient. Sometimes an OEM will procure a 'life-time' supply of problem parts – but this supply can be quickly wiped out should unforeseen demand develop. Lack of component parts puts an end to production.There is an alternative. Profitable, old products can be redesigned. Either preserving the original form fit and function, or adding new features. Product redesign is a cost effective means by which to extend the life of a marketable product.
The term “network management” encompasses a broad range of solutions from single point products to element managers to large enterprise-class solutions. For the purpose of this ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES® (EMA™) report, the term Enterprise Network Management Systems (ENMS) includes network-centric management solutions that are used by large organizations’ operations and engineering teams to discover, monitor, assess, troubleshoot, and generally maintain highly distributed enterprise networks.
For this EMA™ Radar, the focus was put specifically on core capabilities and features primarily associated with network operations’ need to ensure health and availability of the network. Supporting functional capabilities such as performance monitoring, configuration management, asset management, as well as integrated management of connected non-network devices were also considered, but as non-critical (albeit helpful/valuable) extensions.

“This market engineering study comes at a time when DDoS attacks are accelerating in purpose, sophistication, complexity, scale, and frequency.
Businesses of all size have proven to be susceptible to these attacks, and though DDoS is not a new concern, the risk of DDoS attack probability and potential for damages is at an all-time high. As a result, DDoS mitigation is a top-of-mind consideration for IT and security organizations around the world, and demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing rapidly.”
The workplace is changing rapidly to accommodate mobile and flexible work styles, as employees expect the same computing experience when working remotely as they get in the office. And those expectations are rising rapidly among all employees — not just in the executive hallways or engineering labs. To discover more about mobile work styles and client virtualization trends in today’s enterprises, Citrix Systems and HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey IT decision-makers in North America, Europe, and Asia for this Technology Adoption Profile (TAP). Coupled with Forrester’s existing Forrsights data, we found that IT is turning to client virtualization to manage the growing complexity that BYOD programs and mobility initiatives have created and is embracing end-to-end solutions to overcome the toughest client virtualization challenges concerning cost, performance, scalability, and security.
This whitepaper reveals how Oracle recognises that the forces reshaping the engineering and construction industry require technology that can meet these demands. Oracle is committed to supporting the industry with innovative solutions, such as Primavera P6 EPPM Cloud Service.
Phishing is defined by the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) as a broadly launched social engineering attack in which an electronic identity is misrepresented in an attempt to trick individuals into revealing personal credentials that can be used fraudulently against them. In short, it’s online fraud to the highest degree.
Although it’s been around for years, phishing is still one of the most common and effective online scams. The schemes are varied, typically involving some combination of spoofed email (spam), malicious software (malware), and fake websites to harvest personal information from unwitting consumers. The explosive rise of mobile devices, mobile applications, and social media networks has given phishers new vectors to exploit, along with access to volumes of personal data that can be used in more targeted attacks or spear phishing. The fact that phishing attacks are still so common highlights their efficacy and reinforces the need to implement comprehensive phishing and response plans to protect organizations.
An effective phishing protection plan should focus on four primary areas: Prevention, Detection, Response, and Recovery. High-level recommendations for each of the four areas are outlined in this whitepaper.
Engineers are likely not who you would expect them to be. To create messages that resonate with this unique audience, you must understand them on a more personal level. Analyzing a recent worldwide survey of more than 2,600 engineering professionals, we help you get inside the minds of engineers and discover some surprising insights that enable you to relate to them on a deeper, more personal level.
Medical Device companies have typically shied away from design reuse because of the fear of a single point of failure. However due to market pressures, more and more medical device companies must embrace reuse to increase time to market. Unlike common perception, strategic and effective reuse can actually benefit regulated industries like medical devices by expediting compliance. This webcast will discuss the benefits of reuse as well as concepts of continuous engineering that can improve quality for medical devices.
