Bringing blockchain to customers’ loyalty

| December 30, 2017

Loyalty is trust. Trust is called a new currency, much like the bitcoin, because the difference in trust between a company and its competitor directly translates into how much money each is going to make. Every year millions of retailers spend in excess of $20 billion on software that improves the loyalty of their customers. They need to do that in order to stay competitive in the today’s crowded marketplace. Loyalty programs are not only costly, but also time consuming and cumbersome to set up. Often times, customers get only more frustrated from participation in them, complaining about difficulty to earn points or bonuses and to redeem them. This results in the fact that most loyalty programs just don’t pay
themselves off, and shut down in less than 12 months’ time.

Why IBM Power Systems means business for SAP

Article | February 20, 2020

As SAP customers consider the hybrid cloud model for their mission-critical applications, they need flexibility and choice in deployments. IBM Power Systems is known for its flexibility, powered by the largest SAP HANA virtualized server scalability[1]. Today, we are further extending this flexibility with the announcement of SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud on IBM Power Systems. To enable this, SAP will place IBM POWER9 servers in SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (SAP HEC) data centers to give their clients the ability to run their workloads wherever they want across the private or hybrid cloud model. The availability of IBM Power Systems in a SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud environment is a great testimony of the value that IBM Power Systems brings to SAP clients on their digital transformation journey.

Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 24, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”

WIRELESS DATA CENTERS AND CLOUD COMPUTING

Article | April 13, 2020

One of the most exciting areas of Vubiq Network’s innovative millimeter wave technology is in the application of ultra high-speed, short-range communications as applied to solving the scaling constraints and costs for internal data center connectivity and switching. Today’s limits of cabled and centralized switching architectures are eliminated by leveraging the wide bandwidths of the millimeter wave spectrum for the high-density communications requirements inside the modern data center. Our patented technology has the ability to provide more than one terabit per second of wireless uplink capacity from a single server rack through an innovative approach to create a millimeter wave massive mesh network. The elimination of all inter-rack cabling – as well as the elimination of all aggregation and core switches – is combined with higher throughput, lower latency, lower power, higher reliability, and lower cost by using millimeter wave wireless connectivity.
