But while most executives see a clear need to improve employee engagement, many have yet to develop tangible ways to measure and tackle this goal. However, a growing group of best-in-class companies says they are gaining competitive advantage through establishing metrics and practices to effectively quantify and improve the impact of their engagement initiatives on overall business performance. These are among the findings of the Harvard Business Review Analytic Services report of more than 550 executives around employee engagement—research that features in-depth interviews with 12 best-practice company leaders.

DigitalOcean commissioned Cloud Spectator to evaluate the performance of virtual machines (VMs) from three different Cloud Service Providers (CSPs): Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine and DigitalOcean. Cloud Spectator tested the various VMs to evaluate the CPU performance, Random Access Memory (RAM) and storage read and write performance of each provider’s VMs. The purpose of the study was to understand Cloud service performance among major Cloud providers with similarly-sized VMs using a standardized, repeatable testing methodology. Based on the analysis, DigitalOcean’s VM performance was superior in nearly all measured VM performance dimensions, and DigitalOcean provides some of the most compelling performance per dollar available in the industry.

The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP Company, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying StandOut. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of StandOut on their organizations. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with experience using StandOut. StandOut is an integrated suite that pairs a technology platform with coaching to help organizations achieve their talent activation goals. Prior to using StandOut, the interviewed organizations did not have a structured program to improve and measure employee engagement and performance. Organizations used annual surveys and annual performance reviews, and some even encouraged weekly check-ins, but there was no guidance on how to complete these tasks, and the data t

The automotive industry is in the midst of a highly competitive transitional period, with the ultimate goal of fully autonomous or “driverless” vehicles likely to be realized within a decade. The scale and intensity at which OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers must bring innovations to market – while containing costs, mitigating risks, managing product complexity and maintaining compliance – is challenging. The emergence of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), designed to enhance passenger, vehicle and road safety, introduces disruptive requirements for engineering IT infrastructure – particularly storage, where even entrylevel capacities are measured in petabytes. This paper will explore the infrastructure challenges facing OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in developing and validating ADAS technologies, and propose a storage solution that is optimized for such workloads, delivering high performance, high concurrency and massive scalability.

This ESG Technical Review documents evaluation of Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI. We focused on understanding the performance and ease of use of the Ready Solutions for AI with optimized designs for machine learning and deep learning. To validate the full stack performance, we measured the number of images per second processed when training the AlexNet and ResNet50 deep learning networks and evaluated how the integrated solutions can simplify and accelerate AI deployment. The Deep Learning with NVIDIA design featuring Isilon significantly outperformed the competition in training time, delivering 2.9 times the performance of one competitor for an AlexNet deep learning neural network in a GPU accelerated environment and 2.3 times another competitor for a ResNet50 deep learning neural network.

If not, you are increasing the risk for costly, unplanned downtime. However, despite the importance of having a reliable flow of electricity, over half of building owners rely on reactive maintenance programs to care for their equipment. This means they wait until equipment fails completely before initiating corrective action, which is typically 3-4 times more costly than taking preventive measures. A good first step to go from being reactive to proactive is having a power system assessment performed. While often deemed expensive or unnecessary, the truth is power system assessments reveal opportunities to modernize, imiprove performance and help protect employees.
