BLUE BELL, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- PDS, a leading provider of human resource, benefits, recruiting, and payroll software, today announced that FIVE GUYS Enterprises, LLC is implementing its Vista HRMS® solution. This rapidly growing fast food restaurant chain will be leveraging Vista HRMS to streamline its human resources and benefits operations for its more than 5,000 corporate employees.
"By the end of the first quarter of 2013 we will have 39 more stores," said Sara Thompson, director of Human Resources at FIVE GUYS. "We needed a software solution that we could host ourselves, allowed for unlimited users, and offered the flexibility to customize it to meet our unique needs. PDS' Vista HRMS met those specifications. Automating workflows with Vista HRMS will help us operate more quickly and become more paperless. The ability to fully track employee information in Vista HRMS is key and the reporting capabilities will help us meet the numerous compliance requirements that come with running a business in our industry."
Thompson added, "Vista HRMS's ease of use and convenience will benefit both our managers and employees. Managers will have more information at their disposal than they have ever had before; while employees will be able to access and change their information and track data, such as their PTO. Overall, we expect Vista HRMS to help us save the company time and money."
"A growing company like FIVE GUYS does not have the time to effectively manage their HR and benefits operations manually," explained George Brady, vice president at PDS. "By automating these processes and implementing standard workflows, the FIVE GUYS HR team will be able to more efficiently serve managers and employees easily by providing direct access to important information. Additionally, the team will be able to focus less on day-to-day tasks associated with manual processes and direct their efforts to more strategic issues for the company."

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
