Today’s customers expect a seamless, intelligent and personalized experience that operates at the speed of the cloud and is continuously available regardless of location or platform. To deliver an optimal customer experience that will enable you to stay ahead of competitors you need a distributed, responsive and intelligent architecture which is only possible when the right database is in place.
Read this eBook to learn how your database technology decisions can affect your ability to deliver either a transformational customer experience or a lackluster, dissatisfying encounter that benefits your competitors, not your bottom line.
Since the advent of Facebook Places, organizations have been unable to technically link
local ('Child') Places to a corporate ('Parent') Page on Facebook's backend. It has also
been a challenge to create different Check-in Deals across multiple physical locations
(commonly referred to as Places). Facebook is now endeavoring to solve these pain points
through this week's "Parent-Child" and "Check-in Deals API" feature releases.

As data science becomes a critical capability for companies, IT leaders are finding themselves responsible for enabling data science teams with infrastructure and tooling. But data science is much more like an experimental research organization than the engineering and business teams that IT organizations support today. Compounding the challenge, data science teams are growing fast, often by 100% a year. This guide will quickly help you understand what data science teams do to build their predictive models and how to best support them.
Learn how to modernize IT’s approach to ensure your company’s data science teams perform their best, and maximize impact to the business. Some highlights include:
Why data science should not be treated like engineering.
How to go beyond simple infrastructure allocation and give data science teams capabilities to manage their workflows and model lifecycle.
Why agility and special hardware to support burst computing are so important to data science break
Insurers must combine information from disparate systems, applications, and business units to create an enterprise view of risk. By developing a process to incorporate geocodes into location intelligence, insurers can build a more accurate assessment of risk.
For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS

This Webroot whitepaper compares deploying secure web gateways as software or appliances on-premises vs. as a cloud-based service. Lower cost, fast implementation, rapid scalability and less administration are all good reasons to adopt SaaS and cloud-based applications. In addition to these benefits, cloud-based secure web gateways can also provide better security and faster performance than appliances or local servers. It discusses a number of advantages of cloud-based solutions that appliances cannot match, such as:
• Better defense against zero-day threats and spam servers
• More comprehensive signature and URL database
• Supports remote users more securely and without the cost of putting servers in every location
A key benefit of an SD-WAN is that you need not replace any part of your existing network. SDWAN simplifies your overall network architecture and management, and can be phased in as a
parallel, overlay network. Sites are migrated in phases based on their type, location or any other
sequence of priority you may have. This paper covers the migration design thought process,
routing considerations, and a step-by-step migration path to insert your traditional WAN sites into
an SD-WAN architecture.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security
Clients setting up smaller offices want to invest in the same type of technology as their larger competitors. Larger clients setting up remote branches need compute power not only at their head office, but also at distributed locations where key decisions that impact the local operation are made.This white paper compares the IBM BladeCenter S offering to the HP c3000 offering and articulates why IBM BladeCenter S is the best choice for small blade chassis platforms.

Loss of life in traffic death accidents in the U.S. is on the same scale as 25 full Boeing 747s crashing and leaving no survivors, in six months. It is a stark statistic which explains why the US Department of Transportation and the National Safety Council want to eliminate traffic deaths in the US within 30 years with their Road to Zero campaign.
HERE location intelligence already supports more than half of the new elements included in the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) guidance on crash reporting
In the U.S. alone HERE currently works with more than 20 departments of transport and several large cities on improving traffic safety. As the world’s leading location platform, HERE also supports the global drive to Vision Zero.

It’s this thing where lots of brick-and-mortar locations
close down, and even entire companies go out of
business. There’s quite a bit of blame to go around: The
Great Recession, and Amazon, and private equity, and
shifting consumer spending behaviors. In spite of the
doomsday headlines, some brands continue to succeed,
and a lot of those brands seem to be focusing on one
thing: the customer experience.
A good retail experience for a customer can be as
complicated as incorporating innovative technology like
3D printing to create a clothing item on-demand, or as
simple as focusing on the store employees.
Unfortunately, a lot of brands and retailers overlook the
latter. In fact, according to this recent panel surveying
retail employees, only 35% of retail employees feel as

That’s a scary number for both retailers and brands,

Previously, the network at the City of Lake Wales didn't possess any firewalls, intrusion protection or web filtering solutions. As a result the network, which is spread out to multiple locations (including law enforcement), was left wide open to security breaches and caused system performance problems as users unwittingly picked up spyware and malware.
