Data Analytics and Cloud Native Apps: Essential for Digital Transformation

first_imgToday’s customers interact with businesses like never before.   Whether they’re on online or using a mobile app, customers have come to expect services that are always available, with real-time updates based on changing dynamics and intelligent interactions.   If you deliver anything less, you run the risk of losing customers to competitors, who are more than willing to cater to these expectations. Applications are the new face of how businesses interact, engage, win and maintain their customers.So, how can businesses better understand what their customers really want?Businesses of all kinds are using data analytics to better understand demand, predict expectations and tailor products and services to meet the ever changing demands of customers.  By using large quantities of data and tapping into external data sources, organizations can uncover hidden patterns and insights that reveal new and even disruptive business models.   If applications are the new face of business, data analytics are the insights that can reveal new opportunities for better engaging with customers through intelligent data-driven applications.Pairing data analytics with cloud native app development offers the potential to take the customer experience and your business to new levels.   Cloud native apps are built on the concept of a continuous delivery of micro-services, allowing updates to be made quickly and often, for constant refinement of the customer experience.   It’s the winning combination that high performing businesses in industries of all kinds are embracing to provide enhanced customer experiences – something made clear by our recently released Digital Transformation Index.There’s virtually an app for anything – mobile banking, insurance, airline flights, train services, navigation, music and even wine just to name a few. For example, mobile banking apps allow customers to snap a picture of a check and deposit into their account eliminating the need to drive to the bank- perfect for the busy schedules of todays’ consumers. Insurance apps allow policy holders to get quotes, view and report claims in minutes – making the whole process faster and easier than ever before. Another app allows consumers to take a picture of a wine label and rate the wine. It rolls up the ratings from all users to score the wines and generates recommendations for other wines with similar characteristics. Another app that’s very helpful when driving is an interactive traffic and navigation app that tracks your route and allows drivers to share accident, road hazards and speed traps in near real-time to better navigate increasingly congested roads and highways.These apps and literally thousands like them – are at the forefront of the evolution of workloads that are driving the future of data analytics. Whether your business has been around for years or relatively new, together cloud-native apps and analytical insights can help you reach customers like never before and build brand loyalty for continued growth.As customers use these apps, more data is generated about how they use them and their buying patterns. Even greater value can be derived when this data is applied back into the analytics process to enrich intelligent applications and provide even greater insights.   This virtuous cycle where organizations are gathering the right data, feeding it into analytical models in context and taking action on those insights, provides the ideal process for gaining a competitive advantage and transforming your organization into a digital driven business. The faster organizations can move through this cycle enhances their ability to identify and monetize new business opportunities for attracting new and maintaining existing customers like never before.Dell EMC feels so strongly about this combination of analytics and apps that we’ve recently announced Analytic Insights Module.   It’s been engineered to combine self-service data analytics with cloud-native application development into a single cloud platform.   Learn more about Analytic Insights Module and how it can help your business.last_img read more

Leon Draisaitl’s insane season continues with four-goal game against Nashville

first_imgFOUR. GOAL. NIGHT. Leon Draisaitl is on another level 😱— Sporting News Canada (@sportingnewsca) March 3, 2020It continues what has been an incredible season for Draisaitl, who leads the NHL in points with 107 after Monday night. His next closest challenger is teammate Connor McDavid, who had five points of his own on Monday (four assists and a goal) to jump up to 94. Draisaitl has now surpassed the 105 point mark he set last season, and he’s well on his way to his first Art Ross Trophy. The German has also managed to force his way into the Rocket Richard Trophy race, with his 43 goals on the season now just four behind Boston’s David Pastrnak in first place. It’s a race that looks like it’ll go down to the wire, with Draisaitl, Pastrnak, Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Toronto’s Auston Matthews all in contention.  MORE: Matthews keeps pace in Rocket Richard Trophy raceThe performances of Draisaitl and McDavid have helped the Oilers keep pace with the Vegas Golden Knights in first place in the Pacific Division, with Edmonton now just two points behind. According to The Athletic, they have an 88 percent chance to make the playoffs.With their two superstars capable of winning any game, the Oilers have turned into a team that no one is going to want to face in the postseason. Nashville fans are probably pretty sick of Leon Draisaitl by now.The Oilers star had another night to remember against the Predators on Monday with a ridiculous stat line of four goals and an assist in an 8-3 win. It was Draisaitl’s fifth consecutive game against Nashville with at least two goals. That is not a typo.last_img read more

M&CC mulls usage of ‘recycling and incinerator’

first_imgThe Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) has been presented with an offer to partner with Dr Carl Niamatali, to put an immediate halt to the dumping and burning of garbage in Georgetown.Dr Carl Niamatali during his power point presentation at M&CCAccording to the Department of Public Information, Dr Niamatali told the council that his presentation points to solutions which will help with the proper managing of solid waste; including household, medical, and industrial waste. It also consists of various topics to prevent climate change and its catastrophic consequences.The standing order was removed during the council’s statutory meeting to facilitate Dr Niamatali’s powerpoint presentation on ‘recycling and incineration” on Monday last.He identified four major pillars which should be considered when combatting large amounts of solid waste. The doctor noted that every citizen must act responsibly as it relates to the discarding of solid waste.In his presentation, he listed the seven ‘R’s which he believes can bring a halt to the issue. “We need to ‘Reduce’ the amount of garbage that we produce, ‘Re-use’ whatever we can. ‘Recycle’ – which means that all garbage must be separated. We need to ‘Replace’ plastic which is polluting the planet. We should ‘Respect’ the environment and respect ourselves. We must be ‘Responsible’ and ‘Ready’ for a change,” he is quoted by DPI as saying.According to Dr Niamatali, a large amount of solid waste is usually generated from households. “Waste food, plastics, glass, cans and paper,” he listed. Adding, “We need to deal with batteries and electronic waste and tires.”Underscoring the fact that “thousands of tons of solid waste are dumped in landfills every year” the doctor said the disadvantage to this method is that “everything is dumped regardless of the consequences and the toxicity of the materials.”In addition, he highlighted that it costs the municipality a large sum of cash to develop and upkeep a dumpsite. “The cost is over $2Billion, it last ten years and cost $200Million, yearly. The monthly operating cost of the site is over $4Million and the operating cost for long-distance transport of garbage is astronomical.”Dr Niamatali said the use of an incinerator, however, will be a better option and will not be a major health hazard. “Combustible organic substances which are burnt off, all that remains is ash. Toxic gases would be processed in a computerised system to ensure that no toxic gases are released,” Dr Niamatali explained.He further pledged his support to collaborate with the M&CC to reduce the amount of solid waste.last_img read more
