Haas will assist the company in further developing the new and revolutionary AGILITY SHIRTS and their individual adaptation to tennis. Haas, the newly victorious former world No. 2, is no doubt the ideal ambassador for the German, European and, in particular, US markets. For the first time ever, a shirt offers a comprehensive tracking approach that goes far beyond the classical measuring and recording of speed and stamina such as other wearables offer. VEXATEC equips its high-tech product with tiny textile sensors, which directly communicate with the respective app and, thus, allow users direct access to their data. And all this while offering the very best in comfort and additionally enhancing athletes' performance thanks to compression.

Others sports have joined the team with their own, high-profile testimonials: thus, soccer star Lothar Matthäus and ex-national player Torsten Frings are VEXATEC partners, too. As to tennis, players will particularly benefit from the 360-degree technology to enhance their playing ability, agility, and fitness. With its AGILITY SHIRT, the novel VEXATEC tracking function sets new standards in the domain of changing directions, lateral movements, posture, etc. In addition to precise and continuous ECG monitoring, individually tailored functions allow athletes to use a completely new and wide-ranging tracking approach in full mode. Its real-time data transfer provides players, coaches, physicians, and the entire support team with an optimum control potential, especially while training. Besides, competition situations and simulations also help optimize all processes and performance parameters.

VEXATEC founder Salvatore Gandolfo: "We know the effects and functions from motor sports. In the field of telemetry, Formula1, e.g., works with a data set and real-time diagnostics, which are very similar to our approach. The new aspect of the Vexatec innovation is its combination of T-shirt and high-tech solution. This is truly unique. Luckily, Tommy Haas was immediately and enthusiastically in favor of this approach."

Haas will complete further tests between Wimbledon and the US Open, adding important inside information for his own benefit and that of succeeding generations of tennis players. Gandolfo also promises: "No matter how hard or long Tommy wants to train, we are ready. Both the shirt and the data-transfer technology are ready, and things can't get too sweaty for us." For: the breathable compression shirt with its sensors has already proven its functional efficiency in long-term tests as even 100 washings did not reduce the effectiveness of the product. Swiss Engineering, Swiss Made, Swiss Quality.

VEXATEC - the very first AGILITY SHIRT of the world.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Join us at Cloud Expo June 6-8 to find out how to securely connect your cloud app to any cloud or on-premises data source – without complex firewall changes. More users are demanding access to on-premises data from their cloud applications. It’s no longer a “nice-to-have” but an important differentiator that drives competitive advantages. It’s the new “must have” in the hybrid era. Users want capabilities that give them a unified view of the data to get closer to customers and grow business. The...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to...
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. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

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.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions. However, most leaders underestimate the effect this will have on their businesses. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rene Buest, Director Market Research & Technology Evangelism at Ara...
