Will Product Intelligence Develop the Next Sensor Device?

Kobi Gershoni oversees Signals' research methodologies and analytics team. Today he shares data visualization and a Personal Healthcare case study that demonstrates how open source intelligence, or the practice of connecting the dots between publicly available source types, enables a new path to evidence-based decision support for new product development. Let’s see how it works...

Innovation by Acquisition in High-Tech

As workload complexity increased, applications began to utilize three very different forms of storage interfaces: block, file, and object. This in turn led to the deployment of different storage architectures within the data center: SAN, NAS, and CAS. Each of these three architectures internally organized application metadata in different ways...

Application Workloads and Object Innovation

The increased importance that new workloads placed on metadata drove the industry to treat metadata as a first-class citizen. The "interspersal" technique used by most NAS devices did not lend itself to the new workloads. As a result, the industry evolved (yet again) in response to these new applications and facilitated the rise of object-based storage systems.
