Nearly all the transportation and distribution companies in a market are governed by the similar labor laws, pay the same fuel prices and share the same roads. So why are some much more successful than others? Winning T&L companies don’t rely on cyclical business conditions to be successful.

Issuers need to balance eCommerce payment transaction security and a smooth customer checkout experience. The crux of the matter is how to provide a seamless checkout experience for legitimate customers so they won’t abandon their transaction or use a different form of payment while at the same time stopping illegitimate attempts to transact. The use of behavior-based authentication to determine which transactions should be impacted by requiring the customer to go through additional means of authentication is critical for reducing customer friction while creating better assurance that the transaction is legitimate. Rules are an important component when providing this risk- and behavior-based authentication. When models are added, and used to guide the application of risk-based rules, the impact upon illegitimate authentication attempts can be greatly increased while the impact on legitimate customers is decreased, providing a better experience for the cardholder and loss reduction for

Durante mucho tiempo, las estaciones de trabajo se veían principalmente como plataformas adecuadas solo para científicos e ingenieros que necesitaban ejecutar aplicaciones, como por ejemplo de CAD/CAM. Pero en los últimos años ha surgido una amplia gama de aplicaciones que involucran, por ejemplo, distintas formas de medios digitales. La mayoría de esas aplicaciones se han implementado en PC tradicionales, principalmente porque eran de fácil acceso. Pero a medida que las diferencias de precios entre las PC y las estaciones de trabajo se han ido reduciendo, se ha hecho evidente que muchas de estas aplicaciones de medios digitales tienen mucho en común con las aplicaciones de ciencia e ingeniería. En pocas palabras, las aplicaciones de medios digitales funcionan mucho mejor y más rápido en estaciones de trabajo basadas en la última generación de x86 y unidades de procesamiento gráfico (GPU) que funcionan con Windows que en cualquier otro equipo.
