Antarctic Entomology

first_imgThe Antarctic region comprises the continent, the Maritime Antarctic, the sub-Antarctic islands, and the southern cold temperate islands. Continental Antarctica is devoid of insects, but elsewhere diversity varies from 2 to more than 200 species, of which flies and beetles constitute the majority. Much is known about the drivers of this diversity at local and regional scales; current climate and glacial history play important roles. Investigations of responses to low temperatures, dry conditions, and varying salinity have spanned the ecological to the genomic, revealing new insights into how insects respond to stressful conditions. Biological invasions are common across much of the region and are expected to increase as climates become warmer. The drivers of invasion are reasonably well understood, although less is known about the impacts of invasion. Antarctic entomology has advanced considerably over the past 50 years, but key areas, such as interspecific interactions, remain underexplored.last_img read more

EMC named a Leader in the Structured Data Archiving Magic Quadrant and Application Retirement

first_imgIt was Einstein who said, “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them,” which is certainly the case for the EMC InfoArchive product. Only two years ago, we formally launched the InfoArchive product and it’s been a rocket ship ever since, pushing the limits of what’s expected from an archiving solution, over and over again.The success of the product has been recognized through the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement, where Gartner placed EMC in the Leader quadrant for the first time in its young history. Being recognized as a leader is a fantastic achievement, but we are only getting started with what we call Extreme Archiving, which is focused on the following scenarios:Pushing the boundaries on scale: Our customers face rapid growth of both structured and unstructured data at petabyte scale. InfoArchive offers a compelling return on investment for most enterprises, while addressing scale challenges.Handling many of the most challenging compliance requirements: Regulatory compliance requirements are increasing and undergoing rapid change with new legislation such as MiFID II, the right to be forgotten, and new privacy laws, just to name a few. Organizations need an archive that supports both the scale and complexity of compliance requirements, and InfoArchive is a market leader in this area.Making archives “smart” data stores: By using popular analytics tools for both secure Hadoop processing and real-time analytics at the point of ingestion, InfoArchive enables new use cases, such as real-time fraud detection over structured and unstructured data.Being positioned as a leader in the Magic Quadrant is great step forward and we’re pleased with this recognition. But it’s our long-term strategy to not only become the leader of the leaders, but to explore new business opportunities with and for our customers; opportunities that will come out of large-scale centralized archives with a wide variety of information types. The combination of mining structured data across applications, and new text analytics tools for unstructured data, can be a powerful tool to turn archives into a valuable source for next generation applications.Who knows what limits we will discover over the next couple of years? But one thing we do know is that with EMC InfoArchive, we will work to move beyond them.Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement, Garth Landers, Alan Dayley, JP Corriveau, 13 June 2016This graphic was published by Gartner, Inc. as part of a larger research document and should be evaluated in the context of the entire document.

Credit unions, let’s not be cab drivers, let’s be Uber!

first_imgAsked Jim Nussle, CEO of CUNA to the credit unions in attendance at the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s annual meeting held last week in Minneapolis.To move from disruptee to disruptor is no easy feat.  Current disruptors in the credit union space are predominantly quick and nimble Fin Tech start-ups rapidly grabbing market share. The reason they are able to achieve this is simple.  They solve a problem faster and better than current market standards.For credit unions to create better and faster solutions, they need to evaluate how they perform their business in a different way.The target marketFirst, credit unions need to understand their target market and its problems.Target market identification is a way of tightening the scope of the business that is affordable, efficient and effective.  A target market is a specific market and does not mean that you are excluding members who do not fit your criteria, rather it allows you to focus on a market that is more likely to buy from you than other markets. continue reading » 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
