MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- (NYSE: CAE)(TSX: CAE)

CAE and Dassault today announced an agreement naming CAE as the exclusive Dassault-Approved Training Provider (DATP) for the newly-launched Dassault Falcon 5X. This includes the provision of advanced pilot, maintenance and cabin crew training for the all-new Falcon 5X long-range business jet, which was launched at NBAA's Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (BACE) show in October 2013.

"We are very pleased with our long-standing partnership with CAE," said Frederic Leboeuf Vice President, Falcon Operational Support, at Dassault Aviation, "and we are delighted to expand our relationship with the addition of the Falcon 5X."

"CAE is very proud to be part of the innovative, new Falcon 5X aircraft program as the approved training partner," added Nick Leontidis, CAE Group President, Civil Simulation Products, Training and Services. "The process was highly competitive and our customer-focused approach, technological leadership and global training center network are what set us apart. We will be ready for training with a complete training program, including the deployment of two full-flight simulators, to support entry-to-service of the 5X."

To support this program, CAE will develop the world's first two Falcon 5X simulators. CAE has designed, developed and delivered the world's first full-flight simulators for more than 40 new aircraft from 16 different original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

CAE will work closely with Dassault to determine the best initial location for deployment of training services based on customer demand. Additional deployments are also planned to support the growth of the Falcon 5X aircraft fleet.

As a factory-approved training provider for Dassault Falcon, CAE delivers Falcon training around the world for the 7X, 2000, 2000 EX/EASy I & II, 900, 900B, 900 EX, 900 EX/EASy I & II, 50, 50EX, and 10.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
