When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence.
Flybe was one of the 21 companies that were interviewed for quantitative results on their operations as part of an IDC ROI analys
"Cloud first" mandates accelerate cloud adoption within an enterprise and across enterprises looking at what their peers are doing.
As enterprises work to balance innovation with efficiency—and increasingly adopt cloud-first strategies—agility is key. In this IDC InfoBrief, sponsored by Red Hat, learn 4 key capabilities supporting cloud adoption and agile integration approaches that offer faster, more flexible workflows.
IDC recommends 4 critical technology cornerstones:
- Modular development: Microservices
- Deployment portability: Containers
- Standardization of service interfaces: APIs and API management
- Decentralized connectivity: Hybrid integration

Object-based storage (referred to as OBS throughout this document) platforms continue to perpetuate cloud and enterprise IT infrastructure. As businesses move toward petabyte-scale data storage, OBS solutions are turning out to be the right choice for balancing scale, complexity, and costs. By way of their core design principles, OBS platforms deliver unprecedented scale at reduced complexity and reduced costs over the long term. Early OBS platforms suffered from "necessity crisis," were too
cumbersome to deploy and, in some cases, caused a platform lock-in because of their proprietary access mechanisms. In spite of their from-the-ground-up design, a departure from how traditional SAN and NAS arrays are deployed and, more importantly, a lack of standard interfaces made it difficult for
IT organizations to deploy OBS solutions in the infrastructure. Thanks to Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift becoming de facto access interfaces, this situation has changed.
As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.
According to the National Archives and Records Administration, 93 percent of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. Don't let that happen to you, learn more today!
The success of any consumer electronic device depends to a large extent on the appeal of the user interface (UI) and how easy the device is to use. Studies show that good cosmetic design can encourage users to explore the full range of features and often engenders the perception that a product is easier to use. So if the benefits of a great looking, easy-to-use UI are so clear, why are so many products still falling short of customer expectations? The solution lies in taking a fresh new approach a consumer electronic device UI plays. By identifying common UI functionality and implementing it in a reusable and customizable way, we can make it far easier for embedded engineers to deliver visually engaging and easy-to-use consumer electronic products.
"The API economy is the source of much of the innovation that is happening today, both in how companies manage their information technology and how they do business. To succeed in the API economy and reach new markets, companies need a clear strategy to define the best way to achieve monetization.
But what, really, is this thing we call API economy? And how do you take advantage of it?
In this exciting broadcast, experts will explore how companies are leveraging APIs to disrupt entire industries and how organizations can get started today. Who Should Attend this Webcast: business audience"
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.
The use of too many communication channels can actually hinder collaboration. That's why many organizations are now moving toward a single interface for all business communications.
Enterprises realize they must improve the communication and collaboration experience but are still figuring out how social media integrates within corporate culture and business process.
This Yankee Group white paper explores how built-for-business social workspaces enable employees to more effectively work together and move projects to completion faster.
Enterprise Manager provides a single storage resource management (SRM) interface for one or more Compellent SANs. The software also integrates with VMware vCenter to enhance server and storage visibility and manageability. This demo video shows how to use Enterprise Manager to collect VM host and guest storage statistics from vCenter, create, map and rescan storage volumes, and then format the volumes with VMFS to create datastores or assign the volumes as RDMs to a virtual machine.

While Oracle Hyperion remains a market leader in EPM software, that role comes with a hefty price tag and poses some hidden risks that have companies that use it re-evaluating their planning, budgeting, and consolidation needs. Whether used individually or together as an EPM suite, Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Hyperion Planning burden finance departments with a high cost of ownership, from server costs and consultants to dealing with the complex integration between products and the different interfaces.
As Oracle Hyperion users start to evaluate the cloud, they need to be aware of how benefits of the cloud-based EPM solution compare to on-premises software. We’ve compiled this information to a) help you better understand the full costs and potential risks associated with Oracle Hyperion and b) offer guidance as you evaluate cloud-based options.

Pour résumer plus simplement, l’UX est ce qu’un individu ressent lorsqu’il interagit avec une solution, une plate-forme ou un appareil. L’interface utilisateur (UI) englobe quant à elle tous les éléments visuels que vous utilisez pour interagir avec une solution, une plate-forme ou un appareil. Cela inclut tous les éléments (écrans, pages, etc.), y compris les icônes et les boutons sur lesquels vous cliquez.

Pensez à la dernière fois où vous vous êtes connecté à votre e-mail, vous avez visité un réseau social ou avez téléchargé une nouvelle appli mobile.
Avez-vous été en mesure de trouver toutes les informations que vous recherchiez? Avez-vous pu accéder à toutes les fonctionnalités que vous vouliez? Pouvez-vous même dire qu’il a été agréable?
Lorsque vous répondez à ces questions, vous définissez votre expérience avec un produit, une plate-forme et une marque. Et la manière dont vous répondez à ces questions réaffirme combien il est très important qu’une interface utilisateur (UI) et une expérience utilisateur (UX) soient instinctives.
