Creating Truly Friendly Skies: The Cloud and Modern Aviation

By Hoofer

Article Written by Avery Phillips

The cloud is everywhere in aviation. No, that doesn’t mean a foggy takeoff from O’Hare – but big data might be the next big thing in getting planes off the runway safer no matter the weather. And it doesn’t stop there. More data means more analytics capability, and that means more on-time flights, healthier cabins, easier loading and unloading, and more. 

The truth is, the cloud, big data, and predictive analytics are the backbone of modern aviation, customer service, and comfort. How does all of this work together to provide a better flying experience? How can airline manufacturers used this data to improve planes from the start? Here are a few amazing facts about the cloud and modern aviation.

Geospatial Technology To Make A Splash In 2019: Is there a smart city coming near you?

By Hoofer

Written by Taylor Welsh

Before delving into the future of geospatial technology, we should first define it and gain an understanding of why it is so important.

According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, geospatial technology is defined as, "a term used to describe the range of modern tools contributing to the geographic mapping and analysis of the Earth and human societies." What began with maps and cartography has evolved into advanced technology that allows satellites to use digital software to take pictures of the earth and combine this imagery with other data, such as socioeconomic and environmental factors that when combined tell the story of a specific area, country, or the planet.

We often interact with geospatial technology in some form or another every day, whether it’s using GPS to find our destination, tracking a package through UPS, or checking in to a location on social media. Geospatial technology is already used in lots of businesses and industries, including urban and environmental planning, security and intelligence, risk assessment, utility administration, and logistics industries.

Webinar: Assuring Performance in Hybrid Cloud Ecosystems – QOS and User Experience in the Digital Age

By Hoofer
  

In the digital age, quality of service (QOS) and user experience are the keys to competitive advantage. With the rapid adoption of hybrid clouds, assuring the performance of applications running in hybrid cloud ecosystems has become business-critical.

The reality is that the explosion of new cloud-based IT services may not simplify performance management. In fact, since clouds are operating models the heterogeneous nature of hybrid and multi-cloud deployments makes performance management even more challenging.

This 30-minute webinar will provide a quick overview of the key steps to take to assure the performance of digital business services as applications are migrated to various cloud services and show some examples of how you can retain end-to-end visibility along the way.

Join this educational webinar by Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO at eG Innovations and John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG Innovations and learn:

  • How unified, consistent views of performance can enable effective service delivery
  • How to baseline services before, during and after cloud migrations
  • How to get started on your hybrid cloud journey

Driving Distracted in the Cloud(s)

By Hoofer

Article Written by Avery Phillips

Modern technology has crept into our lives and become essential in so many ways. We are able to reach our children whenever we need to, can take quality photos at the click of a button, navigate to and from various destinations in an unfamiliar place, and text our friends about lunch plans all on one device. What’s not to love? 

Although there are certainly oodles of benefits associated with our smart devices, we humans seem to have a difficult time discerning when these benefits are best put to use – especially when it comes to our devices and driving. Sure, smartphone apps including navigation features have revolutionized the ways in which we are able to get around in a new or unfamiliar area, and apps designed to help us find carpooling and/or taxi services have made our short commutes distinctively easier. But at what cost? 

Driving distractions associated with smart devices are skyrocketing, begging the question, why are we paying more attention to our devices than our fellow humans? Can technological advances, namely the development of driverless cars, help us kick back our distracted driving problems?

What Companies are Doing to Keep Their Data Safe

By Hoofer

Article Written by Avery Phillips

A strong lock on the door used to be adequate to keep a company’s records safe. Not anymore! Now, with so much information being kept on computers, mobile devices and stored in the cloud, the job of keeping data safe in a corporate environment is more complicated than ever. 

Cyberattacks are on the news frequently, and hackers are a real threat to every company with online access. You have a responsibility to your customers to keep their data safe, but you also store sensitive information about your employees. That too is in danger of being stolen and used for identity theft or worse. 

As a corporate executive, it is your job to put into place all the security measures necessary to keep the company data safe. Some of the policies may not be popular with employees, but it will help to keep you and them safe from thieves and cybercriminals.
