Test Simulation, Modeling Projects on AMD EPYC: No Cost Nor-Tech Trial

Nor-Tech, the leading complete HPC solution experts, just announced a no-cost, no-strings AMD EPYC trial for testing simulation and modeling projects.

Our clients are experiencing processing power that is comparable, if not superior to similar products at a significantly reduced cost. ”

— Nor-Tech Executive VP Jeff Olson

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., U.S., August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nor-Tech, the leading complete HPC solution experts, just announced a no-cost, no-strings AMD EPYC trial for testing simulation and modeling projects. The trial allows users to chronicle the improved performance and cost/benefit of AMD’s 2nd Gen EPYC processor before they commit–quantifying how AMD EPYC compares with what they are using now and other alternatives on the market in terms of performance/dollar.
The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC is a new breed of server processors with more power, smarter features and advanced security. It is an x86-architecture server processor based on 7nm technology. With double the core-density and optimizations to the IPC, the result is 2x the integer performance, and 4x the floating-point performance of AMD’s previous server product family.
With advanced security features and a silicon embedded security subsystem, the AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors help guard important data assets. They also help safeguard application privacy and integrity by enabling the encryption of each virtual machine and hypervisor using one of 509 available and unique encryption keys managed by a dedicated security processor.
Nor-Tech Executive Vice President Jeff Olson said, “Our clients have been deploying this processor with impressive results. They are experiencing processing power that is comparable, if not superior to similar products at a significantly reduced cost. Anyone that takes advantage of a demo will be able to see this for themselves.”
The easy demo cluster onboarding process is a coordination between Nor-Tech’s engineering staff and the user’s staff. Once the job is loaded into the cluster, the organization will quickly have the answers it needs in the form of actual graphs comparing past performance with performance on the AMD EPYC processor. When requested, Nor-Tech will sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Flemming Videriksen and Bjarni Jónsson have helped companies worldwide implement business strategies. Now they release a guide to Strategy Execution Management.

A must-read for anyone who wants to adapt to a new business situation and ensure an organization that thrives”

— Omar Valdimarsson, CEO, COOP Island

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With their decades of experience to draw upon, Videriksen and Jónsson have mapped the way to create the ideal infrastructure for successful strategy implementation.

CLEAR AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND
Written in a no-nonsense style, the SEM Guide explains step-by-step how to use the latest digital tools for strategy management. And it doesn’t stop there: the authors also show how to create an action-oriented culture, with all team members committed to the strategy’s success.

HELPS LEADERS SUCCEED DURING STRESSFUL TIMES
"Time has stood still in the area of strategy," says Videriksen. "The methods and tools in the field have basically not changed since the 1950s, while technology has revolutionized all other management disciplines. These outdated methods, with their sporadic follow-up meetings and dusty ring binders, have gotten us where we are today: 75% of all business strategies fail. This book is an easy-to-read guide on how to avoid being a statistic and use the best tools to succeed in the digital age.”

FREE DOWNLOAD FOR A LIMITED TIME
Strategy Execution Management in a Nutshell is available as a free download for a limited time at https://hubs.ly/H0v4w270. Later in the year, an expanded version will be available in both print and electronic versions.

InSpire Transpiration Solutions and Fluence by OSRAM Continue Webinar Series for Cannabis Cultivators

Leading HVACD and lighting solutions companies announce second event in free webinar series focused on cultivation facility design

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cannabis industry leaders InSpire Transpiration Solutions and Fluence by OSRAM (Fluence) announce the second event in their collaborative webinar series. “Part Two: Key Lighting and HVACD Decisions in a Retrofit Facility” will take place on Thursday, September 10 at 11:00 a.m. CST. Last month, Part One covered new construction and new build planning for cannabis cultivators and cultivation facility designers.

“When a legacy facility is fully built out and you’ve invested a large amount of money, it’s challenging to start from scratch and choose a new HVACD system,” said Adrian Giovenco, CEO of InSpire Transpiration Solutions. “From a retrofitting perspective, a phased approach is a great way to improve the performance of your facility in smaller pieces while continuing to generate revenue. Maximizing the performance of your existing HVACD system and leveraging controls is a terrific way to squeeze as much ROI out of your investment as possible.”

The upcoming webinar will present strategies for cannabis cultivators to:
– Capitalize on opportunities and limitations when retrofitting an existing facility
– Efficiently transition equipment by reviewing different options and evaluating pros and cons
– Take an intelligent approach to phasing in order to maintain cash flow during retrofit
– Explore ways to uncover creative solutions during a building retrofit
– Successfully maximize existing equipment through an integrated control system
– Understand the importance of equipment selection and the impact of equipment decisions on an entire facility

Attendees will leave with the foundational knowledge necessary to evaluate and analyze a space and choose equipment that will work best for their unique cultivation and business needs.

“Retrofitting a facility with LED lighting gives growers ample opportunity to expand and push the limits of their cultivars while simultaneously saving on energy costs,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “As discussed in part one of this webinar series, lighting – and its effects on HVACD – is a critical factor for optimizing a grow operation. Our customers who have retrofitted to LED and carefully adjusted their HVACD systems in parallel have seen up to 40% reductions in energy usage.”

The collaborative webinar series is designed to provide a foundation for making important decisions surrounding lighting and heating, ventilation, air conditioning and dehumidification (HVACD) equipment. It is hosted by Robbie Batts of InSpire Transpiration Solutions and Aaron Fellabaum of Fluence. Batts is InSpire’s Chief Technology Officer and has significant experience in cultivation science, technology, engineering and construction. He has spent the past decade learning everything about the intersection of cannabis facility design and HVACD. Fellabaum is the Director of Strategic Accounts for Cannabis and Lighting Design Manager for Fluence in North America. Fellabaum has more than 15 years of experience collaborating with growers to optimize their growing facilities, adopt new technologies and implement innovative cultivation methods across multiple crops.

We take a look at what gets lost when we can't meet face-to-face and why many businesses want to bring their employees back to the office.

Many business leaders have been surprised by the ability of their workers to work from home due to what might be termed as extenuating circumstances. Is it a sustainable solution over the long term?”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Is working from home forever?

Many business leaders have been surprised by the ability of their workers to work from home due to what might be termed as extenuating circumstances.

But is it a sustainable solution over the long term?

Will you be able to grow your business this way, or is it time to return to the office as soon as it’s practicable?

We take a look at some of the issues facing managers as they cope with the downsides of working from home.

Working From Home Can Derail Team Building Efforts

What’s the outlook for team building when working from home?

The answer is, “We’re about to find out.”

Thanks to an unprecedented number of employees working from home, managers are struggling to keep up with the changing social dynamics in “the office.”

Many are finding it’s much more difficult to use telecommunications tools (such as Zoom) to build the kind of cohesive, high-performing teams necessary to help the business grow and prosper.

Time-tested team building approaches, such as the famous Forming Storming Norming Performing group development model first identified by Bruce Tuckman in the mid-sixties, don’t seem to translate well to the small screen.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFE8IaoInQU

(Some wags have compared Zoom teleconferences to episodes of the Hollywood Squares TV game show, with each worker occupying their own little box, doing their own thing, rather than working together as a team.)

Indeed, there’s a reason we always want to communicate important information face-to-face when at all possible.

Face-to-face communication imparts crucial, nonverbal cues that don’t translate well over Zoom video conferences meetings. Without these important nonverbal cues to guide us, we are much more prone to serious misunderstandings, hurt feelings, or other unhelpful outcomes — any of which can become a roadblock to management’s efforts to build a nimble, high-performing team at work.

Employee Mentoring And Career Development Difficulties

Another well-regarded management methodology is the HP Way, created by Bill Hewlett and David Packard, eponymous founders of Hewlett-Packard.

The HP Way recognizes the need to both celebrate individual contributions as well as those of the entire team.

But when everyone is working from home, it becomes more difficult for managers to accomplish these goals.

Why?

Working from home not only makes it more difficult to work as a team, it also becomes more challenging for individuals to gain recognition for their contributions to the group.

Evaluating worker performance objectively has always been a challenge, but in many cases, working from home has revealed an uncomfortable truth: even before the Coronavirus pandemic, many managers lacked sufficient awareness of what their employees were up to.

Instead, many managers have been relying on indirect “proxy” information, such as how many hours an employee worked, if an employee was staying late (showing their diligence), or even relying on what we might euphemistically call “self-promotion” on the part of employees themselves to form an opinion of whether the worker was performing well on the job.

Misplaced as this proxy approach may have been in the past, this assessment technique is completely unsuitable for evaluating employees working from home — unless you decided to use some kind of invasive productivity / time tracking software (which most employees considered to be creepy anyway).

Mentorship and employee development is another challenge that’s made more difficult by working from home.

This has an outsized effect on younger workers.

For younger workers to develop their professional skills and advance in their careers (which helps the company grow and profit along the way), older, more experienced employees have traditionally offered important guidance to younger workers in the office.

And, in a traditional office environment, this type of informal mentorship can happen casually and informally, something that does not occur naturally when working from home.

Issues Due To Unequal Access For Remote Workers

This brings us to our next concern about working from home: it creates an unequal playing field for many workers.

Genius 100 Foundation celebrates the life of Education Visionary Sir Ken Robinson

G100 Sir Ken Robinson address – Montreal, Canada

Robinson’s G100 Vision for the Future is being released publicly for the first time, in his honor

He left an indelible mark on humanity. Particularly now, when thought-leadership, creativity and innovation is greatly needed, we hope that the impact of his Education theories will be a guidepost”

— Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Co-Founder and Global Ambassador of G100

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Genius 100 Foundation (G100) will celebrate the life and legacy of Sir Ken Robinson, the world’s most well-known education luminary, by releasing his vision statement included in the 3D publishing milestone Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, publicly for the first time, as well as his keynote address at the inaugural G100 event. Sir Ken was a founding Visionary of this globally renowned curated community.

It is no accident that Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk entitled “Do Schools Kill Creativity” is the most-watched of all-time with more than 66 million views. “We were fortunate to be given this gift of his moment. Only recently could an individual so rare have a conversation with so many so quickly,” Richard Saul Wurman, Creator TED Conference. “He was able to give these millions of individuals permission to embrace their curiosity. He was able to communicate his vision to choose memory over memorize and to hug his waking dream of a land, of a life, of a world in which we can individually embrace learning. The love that comes from this message is only in its infancy with his passing. This moment of the few moments we will remember is a rare gift.”

His influence on the thinking of educators around the world is unparalleled in history and his legacy of critique about schools will have a lasting and profound impact for decades to come.

“Sir Robinson was a very special and influential member of our community,” states Ambassador Ido Aharoni, Co-Founder and Global Ambassador of G100. “He was with us from the beginning. His passing has left such an indelible mark on humanity. Particularly now, at this time when thought-leadership, creativity and innovation is so greatly needed, we can only hope that the impact of his theories on Education will be used as a guidepost, as well as an opportunity to honor him by reflecting and acting on his wisdom.”

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Albert Einstein

G100 was born out of the centennial celebration of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. The organization, first called The Einstein Legacy Project (ELP), was launched in 2017, with a celebration titled ‘Century of Genius’ which attracted some of the world’s brightest and most innovative minds, including many of the 100 visionaries, such as Deepak Chopra, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Michael Bloomberg and Wynton Marsalis and, of course, Sir Ken Robinson, who contributed their vision statement in the publishing milestone Genius: 100 Visions of the Future.” In 2018, the ELP became the Einstein Foundation strictly used for academic purposes at the Hebrew University. And, in 2019, the G100 was created.

In honor of Sir Robinson, G100 would like to share, for the first time publicly, his vision statement that is included in the 3D publishing milestone, Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, as well as excerpts from his address at the ‘Celebrating a Century of Genius’ weekend event in Montreal, Canada.

“It is imperative that we continue strive to think outside the lines and innovate,” states Aharoni. “as well as share the prolific words of wisdom from some of the world’s most brilliant minds. It is through the examples set by Einstein and all those that have come after him, including our friend and esteemed colleague, Sir Robinson, that we will continue to make the world a better place.”

New transit module promises to maximize efficiency and customer service

Transit providers seeking solutions to improve overall operational efficiency wrestle with how to do so without compromising the quality of service they deliver

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Transit providers seeking solutions to improve overall operational efficiency wrestle with how to do so without compromising the quality of service they deliver to their customers. Atlanta transit technology firm, Passio Technologies, recently announced the release of Request & GO, a new transit tool that’s part of their Passio GO app, and designed to enhance both route efficiency and customer-service delivery.

According to Passio CEO Mitch Skyer, “With Request & GO, passengers with the Passio GO app who are located at a particular stop can request a pickup. They’ll receive a confirmation from the driver, providing vehicle estimated time of arrival (ETA) and a map of the vehicle’s progress, along with precious peace of mind—especially important for passengers waiting in remote areas.”

What makes the tool so useful to transit providers, is that there are three types of stop requests available in Request & GO systems: stops that are always serviced, regardless of request; stops on the route only serviced upon request; and stops not on the route (though authorized), but serviced upon request.

The data collected from all three stop-request types gives transit providers actionable insights into how their system is being used, allowing providers, as the company sees it, to make fixed route systems dynamic and elastic.

The benefit? Clients can provide transportation to large areas with low population density, along with late-night service (where Request & GO is already in use), and service to outlier stops.

Scott Reiser, CTO at Passio Technologies stated, “With Request & GO, rock-solid reporting showing real-time demand based on actual rider usage means clients no longer have to choose between efficiency and coverage area.”

Passio Request & GO is an add-on feature to their popular Passio GO passenger app. Skyer notes, “For those clients already using Passio GO, Request & GO can be fully operational in two weeks, and four weeks for those adding Passio GO and Request & GO.”
