MEMS Industry Group Explores MEMS Supply Chain at 2014 Sensors Expo & Conference

MIG's Pre-Conference Symposium on June 24 Prepares Integrators and OEMs for Success With MEMS

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) across global markets, today announced its line-up of speakers for "Designing MEMS In - How to Engage the Supply Chain," its pre-conference symposium at 2014 Sensors Expo & Conference. Attendees will learn how to take best advantage of a robust supply chain composed of device manufacturers, foundries, materials and equipment suppliers, software designers, and consultants as they prepare for success in this rich and diverse ecosystem.

"There is still great untapped opportunity for entrepreneurism and innovation in how MEMS devices are designed, where they are used, and how they can transform existing applications and create new markets. However, in order to pick the best MEMS device to design into your product, it is important to make the right choices," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "MIG's pre-conference symposium at Sensors Expo gives embedded systems integrators and OEMs a guided tour of the MEMS supply chain. Attendees will learn how to pick the right platform and partners for their applications, in order to collaborate effectively and achieve the best return on investment."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
