Digital Transformation Through Mobile Analytics

first_imgThis story originally appeared on turnali.com and has been republished with the consent of the author. At the core of every digital transformation is mobile analytics. More than ever, businesses are focused on delivering growth and profitability with faster, better-informed decision making. And with enterprise mobility solutions, we can intelligently integrate strategic data assets to provide actionable insight with agility and innovation.Mobile analytics represents the last mile in delivering actionable insight—the final bridge that connects decision to action.While rapid growth in technologies such as cloud, big data, predictive analytics, the Internet of Things, and machine learning are all feeding a deluge of data, we are no longer short of information. And yet, we still long for insight, which is propelling businesses of all sizes—not just the Fortune 500—to find ways to harness the power of mobile analytics.But there’s one common mistake that many organizations make: Taking mobile analytics for granted and perceiving it as a commodity. Such a perception risks the loss of momentous opportunities. Mobile analytics cannot help us realize the ultimate promise of digital transformation unless it’s considered as a strategic pillar on its own, not an afterthought.Just like enterprise mobility isn’t about providing one or two sexy apps, accessing reports on a mobile device isn’t synonymous with mobile analytics. It demands a shift in mindset to reshape the conversation so we can embolden leadership and empower our organizations.The promise of mobile analytics in the digital ageDigital transformation does not change the value proposition for mobile innovation, and what I call the Triple-A standard for mobile analytics: “Anywhere, Anyplace, Anytime.” But instead, it reinforces unmatched opportunities we can create with greater urgency, relevance, and capacity.Any data—structured or unstructured, big data or small data, on-premise or in the cloud—will continue to fuel every aspect of the digital economy. However, a fundamental question remains: How do we deliver growth and profitability with it?Mobile analytics provides the greatest opportunity for digital transformation because its potency to transform is unlimited. Its reach is exponentially higher. And perhaps more importantly, its impact is directly applicable when designed, delivered, and managed effectively.The digital economy demands a mobile-first approach to reestablish the strategic value for shifting the focus from data to insight and advancing the mobile innovation to accelerate the speed at with which we turn insight into action.The relevance of mobile analytics in the digital ageMobile analytics is becoming more prevalent and more relevant as the gap between consuming analytics content on a desktop computer versus a mobile device is disappearing rapidly.This convergence is even more noticeable between smartphones and tablets. In fact, smartphones are emerging as the preferred point of consolidation for daily tasks and actions in our personal and professional lives.We can no longer take traditional means of data delivery and presentation for granted. Instead, we must continue to innovate by finding new ways to harness strategic data assets to empower a new generation of talent that associates the future of work with cutting-edge tools for faster and better-informed decisions.Bottom lineThe reach of mobile analytics for digital transformation isn’t limited to a particular domain because its applications extend across all industries, business models, and technologies. This enormous promise is brought to life with the Run Simple vision – which is ingrained in leadership, talent, and a culture of innovation, not technology.Remember, each digital transformation journey is filled with things that are known and unknown, planned and unplanned, anticipated and unanticipated. We can seal, fix, or eliminate the gaps for the known, planned, and anticipated. However, when the unknown, unplanned, and unanticipated surfaces, it’s our team’s passion and ingenuity that thrusts us forward to make a difference and ultimately transform our organizations.The future of decision making is built on digital platforms that make the most of mobile analytics because it empowers commitment over indecision, action over inaction, and passion over indifference.Digital transformation isn’t a technology makeover; it’s a business revolution!Connect with me on Twitter @KaanTurnali, LinkedIn and here on the IT Peer Network, so we can stretch old ideas beyond their traditional boundaries.Let’s create new perspectives that serve as a foundation for future innovation and inspire conversations that would have been otherwise lost or never started.last_img read more

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit Names Potential Heisman Trophy Pick

first_img Fromm is entering his junior season at Georgia. The Bulldogs are expected to contend for a College Football Playoff berth.Georgia is coming off a disappointing Sugar Bowl loss to Texas, though the Bulldogs returned a bunch of talent.Most of the preseason top 25 polls have Georgia ranked either No. 3 or No. 4 in the country heading into 2019.Georgia opens its season on Aug. 31 against Vanderbilt. A general photo of Kirk Herbstreit.SAN JOSE, CA – JANUARY 05: Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN attends the Party At The Playoff at The GlassHouse on January 5, 2019 in San Jose, California. (Photo by Steve Jennings/Getty Images for ESPN)Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is not listed among the top favorites for the 2019 Heisman Trophy – Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts are – though one notable analyst thinks he should be.ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit is a big fan of Fromm heading into the 2019 season.Herbstreit believes Fromm is arguably the best “value” bet for the Heisman Trophy this season.“I think Georgia has a chance to have a magical year,” Herbstreit said, per Dawg Nation. “Arguably the best leader in the country is Jake Fromm, the quarterback at Georgia. I know he hasn’t put up big numbers to this point in his career, but I do think that his steady hand and his leadership and Georgia winning week after week after week, don’t be surprised if you get to November and Jake Fromm is a name a lot of people will be talking about.”last_img read more

Security Forces Continue to Make Gains in St. James

first_img Addressing the Senate on May 2, she said eight feared gang leaders have been nabbed by law officers, adding that the State of Public Emergency is being used to make further gains in the restoration of public order in the parish, and in the St. Catherine North Police Division. Story Highlights Leader of Government Business in the Senate, Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith, says the security forces in St. James continue to make far-reaching gains against criminal networks. Leader of Government Business in the Senate, Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith, says the security forces in St. James continue to make far-reaching gains against criminal networks.Addressing the Senate on May 2, she said eight feared gang leaders have been nabbed by law officers, adding that the State of Public Emergency is being used to make further gains in the restoration of public order in the parish, and in the St. Catherine North Police Division.The Senator’s address came as she sought her colleagues’ support for a Resolution to extend the State of Public Emergency in St. James for a further 90 days. Senators unanimously gave approval for the extension.Senator Johnson Smith noted that there has been a “drastic decline” in crime in St. James since the enhanced security measures were implemented.She reported that from January to April 2018, St. James has recorded 62 fewer murders, in comparison to last year’s figure for the same period. “Incidents of wounding are down by 76 per cent and shootings are down by 60 per cent,” the Minister said.According to Senator Johnson Smith, the security forces have identified 33 criminal gangs in the parish, made up mostly of young men, and a few women.“They create mayhem and instability in communities, because they want to assert power against the State,” she told the Upper House, adding that even with the welcome reduction of crime in St. James, pressure must continue on the criminals, with the emergency powers.The Minister cautioned against revealing to the public everything being done to fight crime. She said criminals are very sophisticated, and they monitor the media and pay keen attention to security issues.“While the criminals plan, they should never know our action plans, and they must never know what we are planning to do and when,” she said.“We intend to keep that strategic advantage in St. James and St. Catherine North as long as we can,” the Minister said.The State of Public Emergency was announced and declared in St. James on January 18 by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, and then extended after the first 14 days, as required by the Jamaican Constitution. The Senator’s address came as she sought her colleagues’ support for a Resolution to extend the State of Public Emergency in St. James for a further 90 days. Senators unanimously gave approval for the extension. last_img read more

Change in weather brings concerns over dengue back into focus

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has intensified its drive against dengue in view of the change in weather. The hot and humid weather coupled with intermittent rain serve as the ideal condition for mosquitoes to multiply.It may be mentioned that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has instructed all the civic bodies to gear up their drive to combat the spread of dengue. People both in Kolkata and districts have been afflicted with the disease. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja Entomologists said Aedes Aegypti is the primary transmitter while Aedes Albopictus is the secondary transmitter. Aedes Ageypti larvae are found in the urban areas while Aedes Albopictus are found in rural areas. The second variety of mosquitoes lay eggs in the holes of the trunk of the trees. In order to destroy the breeding ground the holes on the trees should be covered with clay. The Entomologists urged the municipalities to launch drives to cover up the holes that are found on tree trunks. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayEntomologists say it is difficult for municipalities to take up this venture without local people and awareness campaigns should be launched to get their support. They further said from 1930s to 1960s Aedes Albopictus were found in Kolkata and thousands of people had been afflicted with the disease during this period. Dengue is also known as the ” bone-breaking disease” as high fever is companied by joint pain. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation will take special drives in areas where there are trees like the southern and northern fringes. In vast areas of Jadavpur, Behala, Garden Reach and Maheshtala there are “semi urban areas” where drives will be taken up to seal the holes on the trunks of the trees. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation runs 15 dengue detection clinics and 144 blood collection centres. The blood samples are tested free of cost and the medicines are given at no cost.last_img read more

Annan discusses future challenges with UN representatives

“Our central challenge is to ensure we have the rules, instruments and institutions to deal with all these threats and issues. After all, they are linked,” he told a conference of senior UN Development Programme (UNDP) directors, the resident coordinators in developing countries, in suburban New York. “A world not advancing towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will not be at peace. And a world awash in violence will have little chance of advancing the goals.”For those reasons, “I am appointing a high-level panel to examine current challenges to peace and security and to recommend ways of strengthening the United Nations,” he said. Mr. Annan first announced the creation of such a board last month in his annual address to the General Assembly.The Millennium Development Goals, approved at a landmark summit of world leaders in September 2000, together form a pledge that extreme global poverty will be halved by 2015.The search for a more general UN reform programme, started when the Secretary-General first took office in 1996, would continue. “But the new panel, whose chairman and members I will announce shortly, will look much more broadly at the intergovernmental machinery and will do so in the context of the major challenges the world faces in the 21st century,” he said.”Some countries see terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, transnational criminal networks and the ways in which these may be coming together to reinforce each other as self-evidently the dominant threats to peace and security. These countries worry that the international architecture is not up to meeting them.”But if one were to do a poll in the regions where you work, other threats would surely register higher: civil wars and other armed conflicts fought with conventional, even low-tech weapons, AIDS and other diseases, poverty and environmental degradation, oppression and violations of human rights. For many people, even most people, these are the everyday issues that really destabilize their lives.”As the development coordinators went about their work as “the face of our organization to the global public,” Mr. Annan said, security had to be of overarching importance, especially after the 19 August terrorist bombing of UN offices in Baghdad that killed 22 UN staff members and injured many others, international and local.”While the United Nations cannot be a fortress, neither can we be reckless,” Mr. Annan said. “And while we have a profound responsibility to help those in need, we have a paramount responsibility to our helpers, our staff. That conundrum has always been with us, but it has been raised to new levels by the tragedy in Baghdad.” read more

HotelTonight app now offering last minute deals in Toronto Vancouver

HotelTonight app now offering last minute deals in Toronto, Vancouver by News Staff Posted Apr 26, 2012 12:33 pm MDT TORONTO – For those times when you suddenly need a hotel room but have no idea where to book, a new mobile app that launched in Canada on Thursday promises to find the best deal for a last-minute stay.According to Sam Shank, there’s a multi-billion-dollar business opportunity in offering cut-rate hotel rooms with mere hours to spare.The CEO of the mobile app HotelTonight, now available in Toronto and Vancouver, says there’s big money in helping hotels clear out their inventory at the last minute.And he says needing a hotel room with no advance notice is a surprisingly common dilemma, especially among business travellers.“We’re going after the spontaneous or last-minute need,” says Shank, noting he doesn’t recommend that thrifty travellers hold off on booking a hotel until the day of their trip.It’s for “people who woke up in the morning and didn’t realize they were going to need or want a hotel room. That same-day market right now is about 15 per cent of the (overall hotel business), which globally works out to be about $70 billion or $80 billion.”Founded in December 2010 in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, the site has grown to offer hotel rooms in more than 30 U.S. cities and Shank expects similar expansion in Canada.“We started in three markets and expanded pretty aggressively from that point and we want to do the same thing in Canada,” he says.“Canada has been the most requested area for us outside of the U.S., so the demand there has been strong both for consumers as well as from hotels.”Starting at noon local time each day, users loading up HotelTonight’s Apple or Android app can search for offers available that night, with the option of extending the reservation by an additional four nights.“The list of hotels is curated so we personally vet them,” Shank says.“With the big guys you have to go through this list of 500 hotels in a major city and you have to read reviews and figure out, ‘is this hotel the right hotel for me and am I going to have a good stay?’ We … really just focus on getting you out of the app and into a great room as soon as possible.”HotelTonight presents three options: a discounted rate for a luxury hotel, a hip downtown spot, and a more price-conscious choice.“One of the reasons why we show only three is so the hotels are competing for those spots and that drives the price down for the consumer,” Shanks says.For Thursday, Toronto travellers have the option of booking at the Thompson Hotel for $169 (a $30 discount off the hotel’s best rate), a room at the Old Mill Inn & Spa for $199 (a $60 savings compared to other travel sites), or a stay at the Delta Chelsea for $139 (about $30 better than other promotions).Still, consumers should do their homework before immediately booking something through HotelTonight. In testing for other cities, some offers weren’t necessarily the best prices available on the web.Shanks says his team tries to watch for those not-so-good deals and will swap them out, although it obviously doesn’t happen every time.“The hotels set the price and have full control, which is one of the things they really like about HotelTonight,” he says.“We will switch the hotels when we see that happen.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Resolve differences peacefully Security Council to DR Congo political actors

In a statement issued to the press on Tuesday, Council members reiterated that effective, swift and timely implementation of the 31 December 2016 Agreement and the recently adopted electoral timeline, are essential for a peaceful and credible electoral process, a democratic transition of power, and the peace and stability of the DRC, as well as in supporting the legitimacy of the transitional institutions. In that context, the Council underscored the need “to do everything possible to ensure that the elections on 23 December 2018 are organized with the requisite conditions of transparency, credibility and inclusivity, including the full and equal participation of women at all stages, as well as the importance of youth engagement.” Further in the statement, the Council underscored the need for the Government to swiftly and fully investigate the killing of the two members of the Group of Experts and bring those responsible to justice. Experts Michael Sharp (United States) and Zaida Catalan (Sweden) were abducted in the DRC on 12 March. Their remains were recovered by peacekeepers from the UN Mission in the country (known by its French acronym, MONUSCO) on 27 March outside the city of Kananga in the Kasaï-Central province. Also in the statement, the members of the Security Council expressed concerns over the humanitarian situation in the DRC and noting that it had reached “catastrophic levels” in some parts of the country, called on UN Member States to scale up funding to urgently respond to the pressing humanitarian needs in the country. The statement by the 15-member Council follows a briefing it heard by Jean-Pierre Lacroix, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, last Tuesday on the political, human rights, security and humanitarian situation in the country. read more

Tsipras on the cover of LGBT magazine

first_img“You may like Alexis Tsipras. You may not. You may think that he’s a good politician or a bad one. That he has contributed to the country or not. You may have arguments to support all the above; you may not. But you’ll agree if I tell you that, at the moment, Alexis Tsipras is the Prime Minister o Greece”. These are the first lines of this month’s editorial note of ‘Antivirus’ magazine, a free press publication addressed to the LGBT community of Athens. Alexis Tsipras graces the cover of the magazine, being the first Prime Minister in history to publicly be associated with gay rights. Giving an interview to the magazine, the PM argues that Greek society is more accepting today:“[Gay couples] have passed from the shadows into the light and will never accept to return back again”, Mr Tsipras says, commenting on the bill passed in parliament, allowing the civil union of same sex partners. The Greek PM, argues that human rights are not a luxury in the times of the current economic crisis, talking about the government’s deliberations on the legal recognition of sexual identity (allowing for anyone to choose their sexual identity, without the need of prior medical procedure, as it is the case today), after the passing of the same sex civil partnership law. “We didn’t feel that we owed to the LGBT community to pass these two laws,” says Alexis Tsipras. “We owed it to ourselves, to our ideas and to our struggles for equality and justice.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Awful MacBook Keyboard Flaw Exposed in New Video

first_img Henry is a senior writer at Laptop Mag, covering security, Apple and operating systems. Prior to joining Laptop Mag — where he’s the self-described Rare Oreo Expert — he reviewed software and hardware for TechRadar Pro, and interviewed artists for Patek Philippe International Magazine. You can find him at your local pro wrestling events, and wondering why Apple decided to ditch its MagSafe power adapters. AdvertisementThe Unbox Therapy video, which has been viewed more than 2.3 million times at the time of publishing, includes a screenshot of our previous article on this topic, which collected a series of reports about a bad double space issue, which affected both 2018 MacBook Air and 2018 MacBook Pro units.These MacBook Pro and MacBook Air keyboards were supposed to be more impervious to failure than previous generations, as iFixit found a membrane layer under the key caps that most expected to protect the switches against debris. The previous failing MacBook keyboards were so rampant that dual class-action lawsuits arose.In my testing of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air for our reviews, I didn’t find such an issue, but Laptop Mag will stay focused on these issues.Which MacBook Should You Buy? MacBook vs. Air vs. Pro Henry T. Casey, The 2018 MacBook keyboard woes keep on coming. This past weekend, a video showcasing a new issue has hit the internet, and leaving a popular tech influencer in serious frustration.In a video titled “I’ve got some bad news,” Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy explains how his 2018 MacBook Air, which features the revised, third generation Butterfly-switch keyboard design, keeps spitting out two E’s when he taps the E key, an annoyance that’s driving him insane. That same keyboard design is also used in the new MacBook Pros launched last year.”You’ll be going nuts when this is happening to you,” Hilsenteger says as he shows how it happens inconsistently, without any pattern for what triggers it, and that the second E can be inserted at the start of a second word, and twice inside of a single word. He also notes that macOS’s auto correct fails to detect this issue.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf you’re over 40 – this game is a must!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoAncestryStart your journey with AncestryDNA®- now $59.

It eliminates the need for a data transfer to another software program, and avoids moving the patient to a CT scanner for images in the middle of the procedure. For these reasons, most clinicians will see a reduction in the amount of time needed to complete these treatments, often by as much as an hour and a half,” said Tim Clark, marketing manager for Varian BrachyTherapy.HDR brachytherapy involves delivering radiotherapy from inside the body by temporarily placing a tiny radioactive source directly into the tumor or other targeted area. Using a robotic device called an afterloader, clinicians place the radioactive source into positions through needles that have been inserted into the area being treated. The source is then moved within the needles under computer control to create the specified dose distribution within the patient’s anatomy.Using the latest version of Vitesse, HDR brachytherapy treatment plans can be created in a real-time environment, using ultrasound images generated in the operating room rather than computed tomography (CT) scans generated elsewhere. This avoids the need to move the patient to a CT scanner room for imaging after the needles have been put in place. The process can now be completed entirely within the Vitesse program, from capturing the ultrasound image to finalizing an approved treatment plan.In addition to receiving FDA 510(k) clearance, which permits sale of the Vitesse software in the United States, Varian has also obtained the CE mark which permits sales in the European Union and other countries where the CE mark is recognized.For more information: www.varian.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | January 28, 2013 Varian Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Vitesse Brachytherapy Treatment Planning Software Feature | Treatment Planning | July 01, 2019 | By Jeff Zagoudis New Treatment Planning System Technologies Treatment planning systems (TPS)… read morelast_img read more
