No question the UI in electronic devices today is playing a larger role in the success of a device. Get the UI wrong and your product will have little chance of surviving. And it isn’t enough to deliver a UI that is merely functional: it has to look good too. Studies have shown that a good cosmetic design can encourage users to explore the full range of features and often, can engender the perception that a product is easier to use, which can make consumers more tolerant of product deficiencies.

In today’s competitive embedded markets, manufacturers need to find ways to differentiate without adversely impacting development time and cost. This is particularly true in relation to embedded devices that are designed for use by consumers. As such products become more sophisticated, user interaction via traditional switches, dials, and basic displays becomes less desirable for a number of reasons.
Think of the self-service things you use in a day. Gas pumps. ATMs. Online apps for shopping. They’re convenient and easy to use. People choose what they want, when they want – without involving others in their minute-to-minute decisions. What if your organization could treat data discovery and analytics the same way?
SAS has combined two of its visual solutions to do just that. SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics share the same web-based interface to provide self-service data exploration and easy-to-use interactive predictive analytics in a collaborative environment. This white paper takes a look at this convergence and outlines how these products can be used together so that everyone, even nontechnical users, can investigate data on their own, create analytical models and uncover new insights that drive competitive differentiation. Your analytics journey just got a lot easier.
Technology advances are changing the way employees work, consumers buy, and enterprises conduct business. Old methods for marketing products are taking a back seat to online distribution, and mobile devices are ubiquitous access points to the Internet. The resulting environment is ripe for the creation and distribution of new software for handling a constantly expanding array of functions. When there is an app for everything, organizations have no choice but to adapt or risk getting left behind as markets enter the era of the Web application programming interface (API).
The checklist provided in this document details six must-have capabilities to look for when evaluating a nextgeneration
firewall (NGFW) to determine whether the solution can provide comprehensive protection for your entire
An NGFW must be able to:
• Integrate security functions tightly to provide highly effective threat and advanced malware protection
• Provide actionable indications of compromise to identify malware activity
• Offer comprehensive network visibility
• Help reduce complexity and costs
• Integrate and interface smoothly and transparently with third-party security solutions
• Provide investment protection

The most problematic scenario engineers encounter when analyzing large deformation
solutions using the finite element method is convergence issues due to mesh distortion. This
is typical, for example, during simulation of elastomeric sealing or metal forming applications.
Complex nonlinearities due to mechanical and/or thermal behavior arise in such cases from
inherent material properties, geometric changes and establishment or separation of contact
interfaces. The manual rezoning feature which was released in ANSYS 10.0 gave analysts a
highly customizable, albeit labor-intensive, workflow to change and repair the mesh whenever
needed after an unconverged solution. However, since the release of ANSYS 15.0, the latest
“NonLinear ADaptivity” (NLAD) feature and accompanying enhancements are as automatic as
one can imagine for repairing mesh distortion, overcoming convergence difficulties, refining
the mesh to capture local phenomenon and achieving the “true” design solution.

Today's systems and servers need an efficient way to move the ever-increasing amounts of data over networks. Many companies have introduced solutions such as TCP/IP Offload Engines (TOE) Network Interface Cards (TNICs), Network Interface Cards (NICs), and iSCSI Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) to solve efficiency and throughout challenges. However, the functionality of these solutions is quite varied, and in some cases, rapidly becoming obsolete.
Disk in the form of - that is, disk presented as tape - can be added without requiring huge changes to existing backup strategies. This is more straightforward than adding disk into an existing environment, because adding disk without the VTL interface requires complex and unavoidable changes to existing strategies.

The NETCONF protocol is a modern building block for device management automation, offering a unified approach to network configuration, rather than a device-specific methodology. To equipment vendors, NETCONF is a way to standardize the management interface of network elements. To service providers, NETCONF is a way to optimize the administrative workflow, by moving management intelligence out of the device under management, and consolidating this management into higher-level applications.
Network management systems must adapt to meet the requirements of next generation networks. For example, a user interfaces may need to be refreshed with a state-of-the-art Web interface or support for the NETCONF protocol may be required to help customers deploy scalable networks. Adding functionality and integrating with existing applications and data stores has multiple trade-offs in terms of development time and system efficacy.
