Why do we need better business intelligence?

In simple terms, when businesses irrespective of their size and vertical lack enough information to make the right decision, then Business Intelligence (BI) happens to be the right tool to consider. It helps to overcome all difficulties in acquring the needed information and gives you the best possible insight and basis for decision.

There are several benefits a Business Intelligence solution offers and are as follows-

Helps in sharing info in an efficient and effective way across your organization – BI makes it easy for everyone to access and analyze up-to-date info anytime, anywhere. Everyone throughout the company can participate in decision making in a synchronized way.

Empower enterprise employees – Providing employees with access to analytical data that is readily available and understandable allows them to work more effectively and support the overall business growth strategy.

Simplify collaboration, sharing and improves alignment with a single source for accurate financial and operational info – Having a single centralized location allows you to monitor your key performance indicators, access reports, analyze data and share documents. All of the functional areas are aligned to articulate strategies, set objectives and monitor the organization’s performance so you can make better informed and timely decisions that support your overall business strategy.

Helps in gaining insights to understand and analyze your business performance and the opportunities to explore – BI helps in analyzing and evaluating information that is more accessible and easy to interact with to make strategic and tactical decisions.

Helps in delivering meaningful analysis and reporting and it can track and analyze KPIs against key business goals to gain a better understanding of how your business is performing today and not when it’s too late to impact performance.

Many companies rely solely on the most widely BI used tools, the excel spreadsheet. While excel offers graphs, charts and pivot tables which assist in decision making, it may not act as a gradient to scale your business. Also, compiling data from multiple disparate databases is time consuming and is prone to errors. However, Excel is still a key component of a total BI solution.

Now, for those who are looking to capitalize on these BI solutions, Dynamic Network Factory can help in offering the best assistance, as it has tremendous expertise in BI, data warehousing and analytics arena. DNF has vendor-agnostic and platform agnostic capabilities which help business organizations analyze millions of bits of information in real-time and make better predictive assumptions on the future.

Seven fascinating facts about the future of facial recognition!

Facial Recognition (FR) is giving a new meaning to the security surveillance world nowadays. Though, its logical availability is since 2009, the advantages of its usage are coming into light now. But to our surprise its future dominance in different verticals was predicted way back in 2010, when a research was conducted on it.

In the said year, Alessandro Acquisti from Carnegie Mellon University Cylab focused his attention on facial recognition software. He and his team conducted a study, where about 2.5 billion photos were uploaded to Facebook in a single month, many of them tagged. For the study, Alessandro and his fellow researchers snapped photos of students on a college campus and found that more than 30% of them were identifiable by off-the shelf facial recognition software. From there, by using data mining algorithms, the researchers were also able to identify the first five digits of many of these students’ social security numbers.

To know more on where this technology is heading, please take a closer look at the following paragraphs, which gives the different usage instances of this technology.

Identifiable online daters – An important part of online dating is, obviously being anonymous. People can never know who the real person is until they come face to face. So, you can make up a screen name in order to keep the surprise element intact and to avoid creepers from showing up at your office uninvited. In the study made in 2010 by Alessandro with the name “Privacy in the age of augmented reality” he and his fellow researchers analyzed 6000 online profiles on a dating site in the same US city. By using four cloud computing cores and facial recognition, they were able to identify 1 in 10 of these anonymous daters. Remember this technology has improved three-fold since then.

Better tools for law enforcement – After the Boston Marathon bombing, the police commissioner of Boston said that the facial recognition software had not helped them identify Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, despite the fact that the two were in public record database and were pictured at the scene in disguise. Experts such as Acquisti said that the difficulties can be conquered by using increased resolution of photos taken from megapixel and if possible Gigapixel cameras. But to achieve the best results improved computational capabilities of computers and the ever-expanding mountain of data available from social networks has to be integrated. In a fascinating article in Yahoo, pal Schuepp of the company Animetrics shares more specific advance- software that turns 2D images into a simulated 3D model of a person’s face. In a single second, it can turn an unidentifiable partial snapshot into a very identifiable headshot. He claims that the software can boost identification rates from 35% to 85% if properly used. (Hope so)

Full Body recognition – Allyson Rice of the University of Texas at Dallas has an idea of how facial recognition software could become even more accurate for law enforcement purposes. In a study published last year in Psychological Science, Rice and her fellow researchers asked college students to discern whether two photos- which had stumped facial recognition software were indeed of the same person. They used eye-tracking equipment to discern how the participants were making the call. In the end, they found that students were far more accurate in their answers when the face and body of the subject was shown. And while the participants reported judging based on facial features, their eyes were spending more time examining body build, stance and other body features. Rice feels that psychologists and computer scientists have concentrated almost exclusively on the role of the face in person recognition. But he added that his research has also showed that the body can also provide important and useful information for identifying a person.

Face Scan for phone – You might be aware of “Face unlock” which is a feature that allows you to unlock Android smart phones using your face print i.e a map of the unique structure of your face. This is just the beginning of having a face recognition security measure. In June last year, there was a media buzz, that Google patented a technology that would turn goofy facial expressions such as a wink, a scrunched nose, a smile, a struck out tongue into a code to unlock devices. In early 2015, Facebook announced that it will offer the ability to its users to sign-in through their face in future with the help of it’s newly acquired Israeli firm software.

Facial recognition as promotion – Pretty soon facial recognition can be used to influence what you buy? In 2012, an interactive ad for Choice for Girls was launched at bus tops in London. These billboards were able to scan passersby, judge their gender and show them appropriate content. Girls and women got a video, while boys and men got stats on a subject. Though this ad was for good cause, it couldn’t live up and so was taken down. But this technology will no doubt expand and could allow corporations and organizations to tap into the personal lives of their populace in unpredictable ways. Personalized ads as we walk down the street, like in the scene of Minority Report, can be repeated. Infact Gucci brand started to test this technology outside one of its showrooms of New York in early 2014. But due to privacy concerns and some objections from the passersby had to be pulled down within 8 hours of its release. But Acquisti has a viewpoint that this way of promotion has a potential to be used for more subtle applications- like the ads that can identify us and our favorite two friends on facebook. From there, it’s a snap to create a composite image of a person who’ll start in an ad targeted just to us. Another instance where FR may show its prominence is in the following case where establishments like Wallmart are using technology such as Facedeals to capture its consumers walking into an establishment, mining their facebook likes and text messages and creating a deal exclusively for them. Though, Wallmart offered this deal only for thanksgiving last year, it was a definite hit.

Shattered Glass of Google – as Acquisti notes in his talk, the fact that someone’s face can be used to find out private info is especially disconcerting given Google Glass emergence on the scene. In June 2014, US lawmakers questioned Google about the privacy implications of the device and in response, Google stressed out that they won’t be approving any facial recognition glassware at this time. But what if the user decides to use it? In July, Stephen Balaban announced to NPR and the world that he had hacked glass in order to give it facial recognition powers. He added that his new build is an alternative operating system that runs on glass but is not controlled by Google. In the same year, Michael DiGiovanni created a program called WINKY for glass that let’s the wearer take a photo with a wink, rather than using the voice command.

Your face as currency – In July, a Finnish company called Uniqul released a video of a project in the works, a pay-by-face authentication system. The idea was to pay by face than by cash or credit card. A Huffington post article described this new tech, and also gives a peak at the Millennial ATM, which uses facial recognition as its primary security method.

Subsequently, a point to be noted over here is that facial recognition is evolving rapidly. It is not only driving the surveillance world, but is also pegging its roots into other verticals.

Importance of safe Data Storage for Small Business!

Data Storage is turning vital to every business, irrespective of the size and vertical it holds. But small businesses often underestimate the need to have good data storage in order to safely backup vital information and to distribute data quickly when required.

However, this practice seems to be slowly changing these days, as most of the organizations are learning the importance of having a reliable storage, out of their disastrous experiences of meddling with a shaky one.

Thankfully, there are some inexpensive storage options available for organizations, irrespective of their status of being a start-up or in the market to expand their current storage solutions.

If you’re concerned about the safety of your company information or simply need additional data storage for your growing business, then please pursue the following instructions and succeed.

First and foremost

Generally speaking, they are number of reasons why data storage happens to be a vital part of any business, and one of the biggest factors is keeping company information secure from hacking pirates. Malware can easily wipe off data and it’s imperative that backup solutions are in place in order to quickly retrieve wiped files. Catastrophic disasters like snowcalypse, floods or fires can also lead to data loss; which is why disaster recovery solutions can help a business to access their info as quickly as possible. To save from this negative juncture a sound backup strategy will be needed and the resource could be as simple of whether storing data on external hard drive or on cloud storage.

The need for scalable storage

As a business grows so does the need for more sophisticated storage facilities, especially if you have employees dealing with apps (like financial transactions) which require large amounts of information storage. For certain businesses there may also be legal compliance requirements that mean certain historic information must be stored as part of data retention policies. There’s also the simple scenario of upgrading software in your business making higher demands on your HDDs over the long term. All of these factors plus the safety of your info should be enough to make business owners aware of the importance of this tech requirement.

Storage needs assessment

Factually speaking, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to enterprise data storage. So some assessments should be taken before deciding on the right solution to meet your storage needs. An assessment should include old and duplicated information, as well as non-business related data and how long certain data has to be retained. Other factors such as how quickly the business would recover from a disaster and the ability to share info easily with off-site employees also need some spotlight. The other point will be the need to free up more space via off-site servers and cloud storage solutions. Though, the later needs a second thought when it comes to security and integrity factor. If carefully handled can prove handy.

Available storage options

The good news for small businesses is that there is a wide range of data storage options available to suit every size of business. This can include expensive smaller devices such as flash memory thumb drive for mobile use, external hard drives for those who need little additional storage or move it to cloud Storage. Third party storage such has backing up from your own network to a remote data center server is another safe and reliable option, which can be good for large companies.

To those, who are more worried to keep their data safe and secure and are not worried about the investment NAS and SAN appliances can also prove helpful. Obviously, if data is critical for a business to perpetuate, going for hybrid appliance which offers on-site storage needs and integrates with cloud storage can also be resourceful.

Storage upgrade

Upgrading your current data storage environment isn’t a move to be taken lightly. If your data storage environment is not up to the expected performance mark, then going for a forklift upgrade will surely make sense. If needed, approach a service provider like DNF Professional Services, which will look into your current IT needs and will devise and architect your storage environment as per your organizations future needs. All the pains and gains in upgrading, migrating your company storage resources & data will be looked after by the said company.

Hope, this article succeeds in enlightening those who are not aware of the importance of data storage.

Meanwhile, please share your comments in the comments section below and do let us know your bitter and sweet experiences about your current enterprise storage environments, upgrades, future planning and so on…

Fibre Channel SAN business is down?

Fibre Channel SAN business is down and that is visible from the recently announced revenue figures of the FC trio- Brocade, Emulex and QLogic. As we have seen with Emulex and Qlogic’s results, Brocade has found growth through better business efficiencies, but the basic FC market is widely seen as a maturing one with little or no growth prospects.

Brocade’s first fiscal 2015 quarter netted in $576 m in revenue, but was just two percent higher than the previous quarter. Profits were $87m, in the same area as last quarters $83 m and the year-ago quarter’s $81m.

Sources from Brocade quote that this is still a health stand in the storage world. However, storage analysts predict the repeal.

Two years ago Brocade’s revenue was $589m. In the last four years, their revenue was bound between $540m and $590m and has been declining slowly on an annual basis. Growth in its Ethernet based business has not rescued the situation.

Though, the other two companies i.e. Emulex and Qlogic are smaller than Brocade’s FC and switch business, all three show revenue growth as flattish or declining since 2011.

Analysts feel that while a major chunk of the market is being occupied by iSCSI SAN vendors, the residue is being shared by Virtual SANs pooling server direct attached storage resources as well as by the public cloud storage.

Ironically speaking, FCoE, once seen as a great threat to FC, has not materialized as per the industry expectations with regards to market growth share.

The storage debate these days is not about how you access a single shared storage source, but about which of the several shared storage sources you need to best fit each workload.

To conclude, unless FC SANs show something better than scale-out filers, virtual SANs, cloud storage, HDFS and object storage, their growth is said to face stagnation.

How to maintain your Server Domain?

For those who want to know some tips to maintain your server, here are some points to catch up. Proper maintenance of server hardware ensures a longer life and decreases risk of problems. Without proper maintenance, the server will not run as smoothly and can often cause large issues that take more time and money to resolve.

Thus, to ensure that your server works perfectly fine, here are some tips to follow-

Make it a routine for preventative maintenance – This is the most important and easiest way to ensure that your server works for longer time. It is evident that servers work all around the clock for 365 days. And with server virtualization trend on the prowl, the question of servers being idle doesn’t arise. Thus, as a result of incessant work functions a lot of heat and dust particles start accumulating in and around the server. The best way to ensure no preventive maintenance is missed is to follow a schedule. Perform all preventative maintenance scheduled up like keeping a check on server temperature. Allow free air flow by keeping the vents clean and by keeping a tab on cooling solutions. Electricity supply free from any kind of voltage fluctuations is a must and that is ensured by properly planning the supply lay out with a backup.

Use management and monitoring tools – Always go for automated use of management and monitoring tools. It is essential to be notified promptly of any issues occurring with your server in real-time when administrating a critical server. Thus, automated notification tools, will ensure that your server stays in good health and is always up the performance mark.

Software patches and critical hardware firmware updates – For those who are using server software related to Microsoft or VMware, the software patches required at the right occasion are always distributed and updated by the said companies on time. Now, all you have to do is to keep your hardware up to date and ensure that your hardware can accommodate the software patches with full compatibility. Contacting the server manufacture is a great way to get up-to-date and accurate information.

Power supply for your server – Servers can kick up power use under high request loads. Don’t over-load your UPS where your server is getting its power. Ensure that your power supply is consistent for all your servers at all times, planning a head for those time when power usage will be at its max.

Ensure you replace components from a reliable source – Review proven compatibility matrices for your server and its maintenance parts. Ensure that replacement part numbers are certified by the OEM to work as compatible replacement units for hassle-free server computing. This will ensure that when there are problems, you always have the hardware you need to fix the problem quickly and accurately.
