Association™, a global non-profit organization focused on developing
standards that help speed time to market for products that involve
multicore implementations, announced today that Xilinx,
Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) has joined the consortium as an executive board
"Xilinx has been a semiconductor industry leader at the forefront of
technology for over 25 years, and we look forward to the contributions
they’ll make in the development of our next generation standards,” said
Multicore Association President, Markus Levy. “Xilinx’s involvement with
the Multicore Association, especially focused on our new Software-Hardware
Interface for Multi-Many Core (SHIM) standard and MCAPI standard,
will provide very well-rounded guidance and a practical perspective on
designing with multicore technology."
“Xilinx strongly supports the Multicore Association and its mission to
guide the long-term development of open standards for multicore and
manycore solutions,” said Tomas Evensen, Chief Scientist Embedded
Software at Xilinx. “Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation
and delivering customer value, with dedication to open standards and a
broad ecosystem that furthers industry-wide collaboration.”
The Multicore Association is working to enable the widespread adoption
of multicore processor-based implementations, such as the Xilinx®
Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, by setting standards for how systems
will be utilized and programmed. As a semiconductor design innovator,
Xilinx will help the Multicore Association drive standards for deploying
multicore solutions in high performance embedded systems.
The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership,
with executive board, working group, and university members. The
executive board helps determine the overall direction of the
Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups.
University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association’s
ongoing development work.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are:
Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS)
Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved
Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives.
Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

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. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates.
