Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

It is 2030 (or may be 2035), you look up in the sky to see a steady traffic of drones on their way to make deliveries for merchandise, groceries, piping hot food or refilling dispensing machines or even carrying patients to hospitals.   While this might sound today right out of a next George Lucas film,...

Tête-à-tête Technology

I wanted the heading to be a deliberate alliteration. No, I didn’t get up with it in my mind or my mind in it. It was thoughtful, intentional and engendered by a recent development of technology by Google that aims at creating every-thing aficionados (the every-thing is as literal as it is). You scan any-thing...

Future of Authentication

Overview Most of us directly relate authentication with passwords. And this is rightfully so, since most of our interactions for authentication are based on a password. Passwords came into existence around 1961 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT] for use with the Compatible Time Sharing System (CTSS). CTSS allowed multiple users to work with the...

How did cooperation evolve in humans?

Why do we cooperate - this topic has always intrigued me. All the great achievements of mankind have largely occurred because we work collectively, often subsuming individual interests for collective good. No other species on earth is as organized as humans - at all levels from tribes, kingdoms, nations to supra-national entities like United Nations....

REST Matters (and you need more of it)

Let us take into consider a simple scenario. Everyone nowadays want to stay updated all the time about , "Who said what?" and surprisingly the Twitter has an answer to this question in spur of a moment like many other resources on the internet. Ever wondered how can this be achieved & is possible for...

User Experience is more than Design

User Experience is not just about designing elegant and usable products. We are pointing to a variety of skill sets, together with the creation of personas, wireframes, specifications, data architecture, flow of interaction, high resolution comps and prototypes, conducting user analysis, doing usability studies and organizing content. This entire gamut is contained within the boundaries...

Requirements Analysis in QA

Software Requirement is detail description of the system under implementations. It outlines the practical usage of product or Service, Condition or capability to which a system must conform. Requirements can range from high-level abstract statements of services or system constraints to detailed mathematical functional specifications. Here we will be discussing about requirement analysis and its...

Benchmarking MySQL NDB Cluster with ScaleArc using SysBench

While NoSQL and NewSQL systems are maturing as high-performance data store options and being adopted increasingly, relational databases are based on a proven and solid model. Several scalable products still use them and need sharding, caching, routing when their databases grow into large clusters to protect their investment without significant re-engineering and operate 24×7. Lack...

The Ecosystem Challenge

The impact of technology evolution encompasses advances in sensor technologies, connectivity, analytics and cloud environments that will expand the impact of data on enterprise performance management and pose challenges for system integrations for most companies. As industries are transitioning from analog to digitalized PLCs and SCADA, they would have to leverage sensor-based data to optimize...
