Culture and Communication

Everyday social, home and professional life we often communicate with different people. Each of the come from different culture. The cultural understanding is very important while we communicate. One of the recent incident brought me to write this out. One of the information I shared with team for information purpose, it got understood that, it shared for action. The cultural difference make big impact on communication. Especially the written communications. The serious attention has to put across while communicating with different culture.

Operational Information

When the business initiate new project, which is transferred to operation without understanding the operational information, it’s a failure. This is what I observed. Taking forward things with an imagination. Not relating to the reality. Based on the project you are not changing employees, couture, and operating procedure. If you change the related component accordingly, it make sense. Otherwise the operational information is very important. Understand the area of project, which is going to touch the operation, capture details of operation. Relate both and make necessary changes accordingly. If it’s addressed only one side it’s going to be hit with road blocks and lead to failure. To address this involve the people who belong to operation and understand the details. Visibility and clarity is very important.

 

Project Marketing

Companies Information Technology Department (ITD) conceive and execute project. The executed projects not properly marketed or trained to actual users. Most of the time the executed project value not drill down. The IT team known the new product feature and functionality. But it’s not properly shared to end users. The users are busy with their operational activities.

IT team has to prepare a proper action plan to market and share the details of project outcome to users. Share through internal portal, email, noticeboard, and training session. Majority cases it’s only shared a piece of hardware or software with 10 to 20 % awareness. This absolutely give negative feedback of project. Each project conceived based on a proper business requirement and addressing challenges. After execution the proper hand holding not happening.

End users will be busy, IT team busy. This are excuses to get rid of the responsivity. The value contribution is very minimal executing project in this manner. By preparing a plan the value can easily give to users.

Mojix – Passive RTLS Systems

Mojix Technology Breakthroughs
Imagine what could be done with an RFID system that provided 100,000 times the receiver sensitivity of today’s UHF passive solutions — an unprecedented 50 dB. That enabled genuine wide area coverage — up to 250,000 sq. feet with a single system — with no line-of-sight restrictions. That delivered optimal performance despite natural interference. That in one system powered not only tag reads, but precision location detection, authentication and security plus electronic proof of delivery. That provided high transaction density support for item level tracking and supported multiple simultaneous business processes. And that integrated seamlessly with enterprise systems.
Developed by experts in deep space communications, the Mojix STAR (Space Time Array Reader) system delivers these advances and more to define a new universe of capabilities for passive RFID deployments.

New Digital Signal Processing Techniques Tap SPACETIME

The technologies behind the Mojix STAR system include innovations in iterative signal processing, space time array techniques, smart antennas, digital beam forming, and digital packet radio breakthoughs. These technologies enable the system to detect very faint signals across vast distances in extremely noisy RF environments, and maximize the link budget to give the system its unprecedented indoor receiver sensitivity, accuracy and range.
Unlike conventional RFID systems, the STAR system processes signals in four dimensions — utilizing time, frequency, polarization and the fourth dimension of space in processing received signals from RFID tags.

FalconStor® RecoverTrac™

Automated, Service-oriented Recovery for All Your Data

RecoverTrac™ technology is a standard feature of the FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) products, providing fully automated data recovery that enables you to restore “Any Data Service, Any Time, Any Place.” As an integral part of FalconStor Disaster Recovery (DR) solutions, RecoverTrac technology enables automated recovery of all of your physical and virtual resources, locally or remotely, from anywhere to anywhere. No other software vendor offers such a comprehensive disaster recovery solution as part of its base product.

Any Service

Service-oriented data protection and recovery
IT departments are mandated to deliver services such as email, web, and sales force automation, each involving various processes and complex management systems such as web servers talking to collaboration software or databases running on different operating systems. The RecoverTrac tool matches data protection to the way data centers manage IT, treating it as a series of business services. By automating functions such as testing, archiving, failover, and failback, the RecoverTrac tool ensures the availability of IT services before, during, and after a disaster.
Any Time

Recover data in minutes, not hours or days
In a real emergency, the only thing that matters for IT is to get systems back up-and-running. Recovery needs to be near-instantaneous. RecoverTrac technology enables you to restore a machine within minutes, and allows you to perform up to five parallel recovery jobs – a number that increases when using faster hardware. For even greater assurance, recovery jobs can be run in test mode without impacting production applications or data volumes.

Any Place

Any-to-any recovery
The RecoverTrac tool provides the administrative flexibility needed to recover locally or remotely. You can use any combination of supported physical and/or virtual machines for physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual-to-virtual (V2V), or virtual to physical (V2P) recovery. Application awareness ensures that systems are restored with 100% transactional integrity. By supporting heterogeneous environments and allowing you to leverage existing resources, RecoverTrac technology eliminates costly vendor lock-in and maximizes return on investment (ROI).

Virtually anywhere
RecoverTrac technology integrates seamlessly with VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V systems. Intuitive wizards help create hypervisor servers and virtual machines (VM) at any location. RecoverTrac technology leverages VMware programming interfaces for on-demand VM creation. This eliminates the need to create expensive and unnecessary target VMs that remain unused, minimizing licensing costs and related overhead at the disaster recovery site.
