DPI software is made to inspect packets at high wire speeds and a critical factor is the throughput and resources required. Keeping the amount of resources that integrated DPI and application classification technology requires low is critical. The fewer cores (on a multi-core processor) and the less on-board memory an engine needs, the better. Multi-threading provides almost linear scalability on multi-core systems. In addition, highly-optimized flow tracking is required for handling millions of concurrent subscribers.
Many organizations consider optimization only for their largest or most challenging business problems, often utilizing a small number of Operations Research professionals.

With a proven track record of results demonstrating that organizations can increase profitability with business analysts applying optimization to many types of business problems, FICO’s proven development methodology is giving organizations the confidence to extend optimization practices across their enterprises.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

Curves® and Jenny Craig® operate 7,000 Curves clubs and franchises globally and 400 Jenny Craig locations supported by IT service desks in California, Texas, and Australia. The two organizations combined to form Curves Jenny Craig in November 2013. Outdated systems, known internally as “the black hole,” plagued Jenny Craig with inefficient processes and created a lack of accountability. For example, records could not be categorized or prioritized properly, tracked by date or owner, and they could be intentionally hidden in an ambiguous status. Without visibility, Jenny Craig had no way to quantify the impact of their customer service. Mary Carter, manager of IT service, summed it up, “We had no reporting prior Cherwell Service Management.” Curves was in even worse shape as they logged tickets in an Excel® spreadsheet.
