WINTERTHUR, Switzerland, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Noser Engineering AG in Association with Sage Switzerland AG will Demonstrate
How Augmented Reality and Google Glass™ Provide a Hands-free, Realtime,
Data Rich Operating Environment
Noser Engineering AG the Swiss based global information technology consultancy announced today they will demonstrate how Augmented Reality and smart wearable devices are beginning to shape the future of B2B, work, and productivity at X-Days 2014 in Interlaken, Switzerland from March 19-20, 2014.
During the course of a joint presentation on the opening day of X-Days 2014, Noser Engineering and their partners Sage Switzerland, will demonstrate the recently developed Sage Inventur- App, and how Augmented Reality and Google Glass™ can be implemented within an inventory Management/Logistics environment. Historical facts, and projected trends about Augmented Reality used in combination with smart wearable devices will be discussed. As well, the potential for businesses small and large to transform the way individuals and teams work through Augmented Reality and smart wearable devices will be explored.
"The potential areas of application of augmented reality in business, and in particular, field engineering services are almost limitless," said Geri Moll, CEO, Noser Engineering AG. "By combining the use of Augmented Reality and smart wearable devices to provide a hands-free, realtime, data rich operating environment, individuals and teams can make informed decisions quickly and work together remotely as if they were in the same room leading to increased productivity, safety, innovation and quality." Jean-Jacques Suter, CEO of Sage Switzerland AG, adds: "Such interaction between man and machine within Augmented Reality opens up new dimensions for business processes."
Wearable computing devices in the form of glasses can bring savings, especially in smaller and medium-sized companies. Noser Engineering will demonstrate how in a warehouse environment enriched with information, which is projected directly in front of the eye, the exact storage location as well as the individual packages are indicated by the smart glasses. The barcode can be scanned with the glasses and the goods will be shown as picked in the system. And for example, if a lift or piece of equipment at the warehouse is defective, support can be requested directly. A support team that sits anywhere in the world, can be contacted immediately and with instructions given visually and accoustically through the glasses, simple repairs can be made. The glasses can also contribute to workplace safety as safety instructions of all kinds can be stored and visually or acoustically communicated to warehouse staff. At the end of the day, smart glasses could generate automatic reports within minutes.
Augmented Reality - Theory, Practice, Smart Glasses - will be presented on March 19, 2014 at 15:00 by Martin Straumann, Head of Mobile Solutions, Noser Engineering AG and Edwin Buetikofer, Director Research & Development, Sage Switzerland AG. Noser Engineering will also showcase the App, and the potential of Augmented Reality at X-Days 2014, March 19-20 in Interlaken, Switzerland, at their booth number P03.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...
