When it comes to workforce engagement, there’s no such thing as “enough” employee communications. You need an easy way to broadcast your key messages to increase engagement, foster collaboration, create culture and increase loyalty. You need something that’s built for the speed of today’s communication needs.
When it comes to implementing and managing an effective digital signage network, every organization has to start somewhere. Regardless of how many screens you have or what applications you’ve deployed, there’s always something new to learn. But you don’t have to learn every lesson on your own. We’ve compiled a list of tips and best practices from organizations of all sizes—companies with implementations ranging from 10 screens to 2,000 screens. Use this resource to learn from the people that have successfully implemented and scaled digital signage within their organizations.
Although computers are better when it comes to processing and making
calculations, they haven’t been able to accomplish some of the most basic
human tasks, until now. Thanks to cognitive computing, machines are bringing
human-like intelligence to many business applications, including big data.
So, what is cognitive computing? According to Forbes, “cognitive computing
comes from a mashup of cognitive science—the study of the human brain and
how it functions—and computer science.” This definition is a good place to start.
However, to really understand what cognitive computing is, we have to go a
The way we produce and consume energy globally is changing. Over the next decade, the energy mix will undergo a significant shift at both a supranational and domestic level as we work towards a cleaner future.
By 2030, the offshore wind power market is expected to be worth £30 billion per year. Fast forward to 2050 and the industry is projected to contribute to at least a third of the total global electricity supply.
While this is great news for power generation companies, recent research has showed that the costs associated with maintaining wind farms will double between 2015 and 2020.
To secure its place in the future energy mix, protecting a wind turbines value and output through effective maintenance will prove critical to achieving a competitive edge.
There are steps that can be taken now, to reduce maintenance costs today and keep them lower in the future.

The hybrid cloud has arrived for the enterprise, but it comes with a complication: the speed of light. Between the cloud and the end user (including IoT devices that count as ‘users’), there is an emerging need for an intermediate environment that can satisfy real-time compute requirements without incurring the latency of reaching all the way to the cloud. ‘Edge compute’ is the phrase used to describe what covers this middle ground, but the optimal location for edge compute resources remains open to question.

Malgré des différences certaines entre les plates-formes d’automatisation, la réussite tient souvent à trois facteurs : votre stratégie et votre processus, votre flux de contenus et de leads, et vos collaborateurs. En règle générale, un investissement limité dans ces trois domaines se traduira par un retour sur investissement (ROI) de l’automatisation marketing correct, mais pas exceptionnel. Plus vous investirez, plus vous ferez bouger les curseurs et augmenterez votre ROI.
Le secret est de voir grand, de commencer petit et d’avancer rapidement. Autrement dit, les meilleurs résultats sont généralement obtenus en démarrant avec ce que vous avez et en investissant progressivement.
Supply chain managers are increasingly leveraging location intelligence and location data to raise visibility throughout their whole logistics process and to optimize their delivery routes. Leveraging this data requires an ever-more-robust technology stack.

In the quest to understand how a therapeutic intervention performs in actual use – in real medical practice outside the controlled environment of clinical trials – many life sciences organizations are stymied. They rely on one-off processes, disconnected tools, costly and redundant data stores, and ad hoc discovery methods.
It’s time to standardize real-world data and analytics platforms – to establish much-needed consistency, governance, repeatability, sharing and reuse. The organizations that achieve these goals will formalize their knowledge base and make it scalable, while significantly reducing turnaround times, resources and cost.
Learn the seven key components for putting that structure to real-world evidence – and four ways to take it to the next level.
Imagine: Your pharmaceutical or medical device has been tested in carefully designed
clinical trials and shown to meet required standards of efficacy and safety. It has gained
regulatory approval and has gone to market. Now you want to know, does it measure
up to its promise when used in the real world? Does it materially improve patient
outcomes? Does it outperform alternative therapies? Does it achieve these outcomes at
an appropriate value? Do you know which patients are most likely to benefit from it?
Can you prove it, with statistical rigor?
As the health care system moves toward a patient-centric, value-based approach,
questions such as these are getting heightened scrutiny from all angles – from regula-
tors, payers, providers and patients. And they should. Real-world evidence (RWE) can
provide new insight into the benefits, risks and cost effectiveness of medicines and
medical devices in actual use – evidence that can enable life sciences companies to

The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.

When any organization starts planning for cloud-native applications, it is important to consider
the entire time span: from selecting a development platform until an application is truly production-grade and ready for delivery in the cloud. It can be a long journey, with many decisions
along the way that can help or hinder progress.
For example, at the beginning of a move to cloud-native development, it is easy for inefficiencies
to occur if developers begin selecting tools and frameworks before they know where the application will be deployed. While enterprise developers want choice of runtimes, frameworks, and
languages, organizations need standards that address the entire application life cycle in order
to reduce operational costs, decrease risks, and meet compliance requirements. Organizations
also want to avoid lock-in, whether it is to a single provider of cloud infrastructure or the latest

An introduction to the Forrester analyst report: How to Capture the Benefits of Microservice Design
There has always been a relationship between an application and the platform and services which
run it. For a long time, that relationship was very tight and encompassed a lot of areas related to the
application design, from the language the application could be written in to administrative behaviors
like monitoring and logging, even things like transaction management, frontend UI development, or
In a sense, the application platform was just another design consideration for the application. A few
years ago, as significant changes in platform technology like cloud, containers, and virtual machines
started rolling out, the primary emphasis for CTOs and application architects was on how to move to
those platforms. The platform choice was a major part of the application. The focus was — one way or
another — getting into “the cloud.”
There’s been a shift in customers’ pri
Citadel-founder Ken Griffin lit up the luxury residential sector in January 2019 when he bought a super penthouse in New York City for US$240 million. This purchase followed another acquisition he made in London in which he forked out US$122 million for a 200-year old house overlooking London’s St James Park.
These ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) buyers, local or foreign, are chief executive officers (CEOs) of tech companies or investment funds, and chairmen of major multi-national corporations (MNCs). They are also collectors of trophy assets who go for nothing less than the best-in-class attributes such as location, size, views, privacy, luxurious furnishings, and architectural merit.
Trophy real estate is the ultimate collectible treasure. Like buying a prized sports car or a high-value masterpiece of art, trophy residences can ignite the desires of the UHNW individuals. As such, many developers of ultra-luxury properties have conceived collectible concepts right from the planning
