GCR Inc. Announces the March 10-11, 2014 NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update Conference in New Orleans, LA

NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GCR Inc. announces the 2014 NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update conference, to be held at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans from March 10 through March 11, 2014.  Representatives from over 40 nuclear power stations in the US and Canada, representing two-thirds of the entire fleet, will attend to learn about emergent technologies, share information and collaborate with peers and industry leaders.  Historically focused on chemistry departments, NuclearIQ now serves teams from Groundwater, Radiation Protection, Emergency Services and other plant groups through data management solutions.

Industry leading partners will present technologies that support the conference theme – "Information Collection, Sharing and Collaboration".  GCR's NuclearIQ team and partners will jointly address the challenges of disconnected systems, how to connect, and how to enable automated data sharing to save time and reduce errors while increasing data visibility.  Representatives from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), www.epri.com, will discuss the future of Smart Chemworks chemistry modeling tools.

Partners such as:

  • OSIsoft will demonstrate the interface between PI server and NuclearIQ, and discuss the efficiencies realized when these two systems pass data seamlessly.
  • Canberra will announce the general availability of a new automated interface between Gamma Spectroscopy counters, the underlying Apex database and NuclearIQ.
  • Ortec, a division of Ametek, will demonstrate a portable gamma spec machine and the automated update of NuclearIQ with sample results in real time.
  • Leidos, formerly of SAIC, with partners On-Ramp Network and SCT Engineering, will demonstrate a wireless, ultra-portable, radiation monitor in a compact battery-backed sensor housing that collects data over a secure wireless network, updating NuclearIQ database, reports, maps and the Control Room in real time.  This technology delivers twenty times the battery-backed EPZ coverage at 1/20 the cost, 24/7, over previous rad monitoring technologies and is the ideal solution in this post-Fukushima era.

Additionally, stations from the largest fleets in the US will demonstrate an automated electronic transfer of lab test results into NuclearIQ from external labs. This electronic transfer is a time saving routine that advances posting and report generation within the NuclearIQ software system, and eliminate technicians waiting to key-in data from hardcopy lab reports.

The NuclearIQ® Users Group and Industry Update conference will be the first time that these leadership technologies have been demonstrated in one location.  The conference will be a forum to demonstrate industry-based practices and technologies that extend the NuclearIQ software infrastructure to provide unprecedented return on investment for nuclear power stations.  As stations replace aging 1970's technology and seek to lower maintenance and operational costs, new technologies are available.

Representatives from nuclear power stations, partners, and regulators are all invited to attend this free conference.  For more information about NuclearIQ®, visit www.nuclearIQ.com.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
