Apprehension about migrating IT Services to the Cloud: realities, report and recommendations.

Even if the benefits reaped from cloud computing are more and more compelling, it is clear that, a set of bias and reluctances continue to shadow this emerging technology. The flexibility, agility, and scalability that companies need in real-time to appropriate their end-to-end competitiveness and digital transformation can be found using a set of cloud computing technologies and services., soon #Retinknow has captured for you a new report, from MeriTalk, a public-private partnership focused on improving the outcomes of government IT.
Titled “CloudControl: Movingto the Comfort Zone.” The study, underwritten by NetApp and Arrow, reveals that Federal agencies want to double their cloud use across infrastructure, platforms, and applications but, about 89 percent of Federal IT professionals still feel some apprehension about migrating to the cloud.
According to this report, while only 44 percent of agencies have “mature” data governance practices in the cloud, 56 percent …

Large and diverse data sets into a seamless interpretive environment for individuals, professionals and enterprise organizations.

In our highly competitive environment, which requires an end-to-end performance, companies need sophisticated tools with minimum of outliers, for effectively leverage their data as a real competitive advantage.
This crucial reality leads, soon #Retinknow to encourage the new partnership between Calgary Scientific Inc., (mobile access to data intensive applications), with Aqumin LLC., (interactive 3D visual interpretation software).
Henceforth both companies develop a joint mobile data visualization tool that can be applied to existing software applications in financial market analysis, process and control monitoring or industries dealing with any form of big data.

Sécurité des données et actifs numériques sur les applications mobiles : réalités et recommandations.

Il n’ya plus d’étonnements ni de d’incompréhensions quant au nouveau statut de nos mobiles (Smartphone, Tablette et un ensemble de wearables).
Le mobile est désormais le centre de convergence de toutes nos activités quotidiennes : professionnelles, personnelles, divertissement, communications, renseignements, etc. Ceci étant, la sécurité bout-en-bout (chiffrement) des données sensibles et des actifs numériques doit et est une priorité absolue pour chaque développeur., bientôt #Retinknow, recommande donc les bonnes pratiques et méthodologies.
C'est-à-dire entre autre que : l’envoi de données sur le réseau ; stockage du mot de passe ; enregistrement de captures d’écran, etc. doivent être chiffrés de bout-en-bout.
Des serveurs Web public qui ne chiffrent pas leur environnement doivent être évités. Les développeurs doivent éviter de coder leurs applications pour qu’elles enregistrent le mot de passe en clair sur le téléphone. Le chiffrement transmission : texte, images,…

Wireless test solutions for LTE-Advanced and beyond: recommendations and tools.

With the proliferation of the mobile-video consumption, the excitements around social platforms and cloud services; one assists progressively  to the growing installations and deployments of the 3G and 4G LTE networks across the world.
This means, mobile carriers or operators henceforth need: robust, reliable, secure, flexible, scalable and seamless tools, methodologies, technologies and solutions to meet these emerging challenges and focus on user experience. A comprehensive wireless test solutions for LTE-Advanced and beyond, is part of the solutions. Therefore, when it comes to wireless test solutions for LTE-Advanced and beyond,, soon #Retinknow®, recommends inter alia: 
Scalable, flexible, agile , seamless purpose-built to support advanced testing configurations for Small Cells, HetNets, Carrier Aggregation, MU-MIMO, Full Dimension MIMO, 3D Beamforming and Advanced Antenna Systems;·A platform that allow users to design complex networks of multiple cells with dynam…

Machine learning platform for analyzing human language data: recommendations and solution.

Indeed, companies, organizations and public sector have henceforth an unmatched opportunities to scale and improve their activities in real-time with the proliferation of data from multiple sources. A set of Big data and Analytics solutions are available to help them cope with this reality. 
But until now, beyond some aberrations observed when it comes to Analytics, it is clear that: companies, organizations and public sector continue to face certain difficulties to extract real business value from Big Data. 
At we can observe inter alia that, the complexity of Big Data environments also means it is difficult to correlate, normalize and securely connect information across disparate sources.
However, it is also exciting to observe that, with the Machine Learning approach, we can talk about impactful analysis and discovery.
This means inter alia that: natural language processing, text analytics, and predictive analytics inside machine learning solutions that understand hu…
