HP Discover 2014 – A Recap from Barcelona

first_imgHP Discover 2014 has officially come to an end, but we’re still basking in the glow of the exciting three days when IT leaders from across the globe gather to discuss the future of technology. Join us as we examine the highlights and takeaways from HP Discover’s second annual event in Barcelona.Day 1 – Disruptive Innovation“This is a time of relentless disruptive change for businesses and for governments. Think about it — ceaseless information flows, threats and uncertainty, constant connectivity, instant gratification, new channels, new markets, and new business models. No company survives without adapting. Without the ability to question, to rethink, to change, and to renew. Not your companies and not us.”HP president, chairman, and CEO Meg Whitman kicked off the event with an impactful keynote on the shift from traditional IT to a new style of IT. She emphasized the need for an infrastructure designed to support the needs of the business, as well as the necessity for agile, scalable technology solutions. With the converging forces of big data, cloud, and mobility, consumerization is poised to revolutionize operations and permanently change the way IT supports the business.Day 2 – Intelligent Business TransformationHP had several key product unveilings that reiterated the current focus on a new IT. New servers, storage, converged systems, and services were evidence of HP’s focus on re-imaging old technology while embracing emerging technology and future disruptors. Discussions ranged from HP Haven (currently the sole big data platform on the market) to The Machine, a computing model that will bear tremendous weight in the evolution of data processing and analysis. “Computers have basically been built the same way for the past 60 years. At HP Labs we want to rethink computing,” said Martin Fink, CTO and director of HP Labs. “This Machine, our goal — in effect — is to allow us to run Haven on steroids.”Day 3 – A New Style of ITThe Intel booth remained a mainstay for event participants for the duration of the event; luckily Ivana Jordanova, HP sales business development manager for Intel EMEA, was there to give those not in attendance a tour.This year’s HP Discover was an enthralling look into the progress of IT in business. The overall focus on big data, cloud innovation, cybersecurity, and mobility in the enterprise was very much a reflection of the SMAC stack — social, mobile, analytics, cloud — we’ve been prioritizing at Intel. Great things lie on the horizon for IT, and we’re happy to be a part of that.Until next year, adiós de Barcelona!last_img read more

It is about development, about driving the club.“There will be no reaction that has not been thought out.”He continued: “You have to get it right — the buying of players and the development. Infrastructure is important and to comply with financial fair play you need to go for younger players on low wages.“The challenge is still progressing while keeping the wages down.“I think we’ve learned.

Football According to report Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight out for rest of

Michigan junior quarterback Wilton Speight (3) looks downfield for an open receiver during first-half action against Central Florida at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich., on Saturday, Sept. 10. Courtesy of TNSThe final regular season game for Ohio State against Michigan will kickoff without the Wolverines starting signal-caller. In Michigan’s loss against Iowa on Saturday, redshirt sophomore quarterback Wilton Speight reportedly broke his collarbone.The injury will keep Speight out for the remainder of the regular season. According to mgoblog.com, the redshirt sophomore could return to the Wolverines for a bowl game, but will not be able to play for the next two weeks.Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh denied the report on his weekly radio show, saying that a doctor had not told him Speight would be unavailable for the rest of the regular season.Although injuries are never a positive note, the Buckeyes could benefit from the absence of Speight, who has thrown for 2,156 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. John O’Korn, a senior transfer from Houston, is likely to start against the Hoosiers.O’Korn has thrown just 18 passes this year, two of which were for touchdowns.The last time a backup quarterback started a game at Ohio Stadium, the Buckeyes were on the wrong end of a 17-14 affair with Michigan State. This time, OSU will have more time to prepare for a different quarterback, considering then-junior Tyler O’Connor replaced injured Michigan State starter Connor Cook just before kickoff, last year. The announcement of the injury comes two weeks before The Game. Although history has a tendency to repeat itself, this is an instance in which the Buckeyes hope to rewrite the story. read more

Commentary Individual success under spread offenses in college might not translate to

When I first heard that renowned coach Urban Meyer was returning from retirement to coach at Ohio State, I almost choked on the microwavable meal I was eating. I mean, this was the coach who led the Florida Gators to two national championships in 2006 and 2008. Possibilities of great potential rushed through my mind. OSU could now return to its title-contending status it had under former Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel. Some changes, however, would need to occur. One of these changes was the implementation of the spread offense into the playbook. No harm done, right? I mean, numerous college football programs across the country use the spread offense and thrive, including many schools in the dominating Southeastern Conference, where Meyer previously coached. In the realm of college football, it’s a great idea. But what happens when the top-notch players move to the NFL? The spread offense has been tried in the National Football League and, sometimes, it can bring some success. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady used this scheme in 2007. But, time and again, the spread offense, for the most part, doesn’t work in professional football. The old tradition of dropping back in the pocket and making plays rules dominant in the NFL and will most likely do so for a long time. The question facing college athletes playing in spread formations across the country is whether individual success in that type of offense translates to the pro level? It might just be the case that it doesn’t. Need an example? How about former Gators and current New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow? Tebow played in Meyer’s spread offense at Florida and he was a freak of college football nature, winning the Heisman Trophy and two national championships. Tebow entered the NFL after his senior season in 2010 and was drafted 25th overall by the Denver Broncos. Once Tebow had his chance to be a starter, he led the Broncos, who began last season 1-4, to the playoffs. Since Tebow was accustomed to using his running ability often in Meyer’s spread offense, though, he was forced to buckle down and throw in the pocket in NFL. He failed miserably, not even being able to throw with the correct form. This complication allowed Tebow and the Broncos to eventually be flushed out by the New England Patriots in the playoffs. Despite Tebow’s sincere dedication to reshaping his throwing form, it didn’t help him when it mattered most. Everyone knows from a psychological perspective that integrated physical habits are extremely hard to overcome. Now, Tebow finds himself as New York Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez’s backup. This was also the case for quarterback JaMarcus Russell, who was the quarterback for the LSU Tigers and played in a spread offense under Tigers coach Les Miles. While he was a dominant player in college like Tebow, Russell struggled after being drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2007. In May 2010, the Raiders cut Russell. While it’s hard to say that the spread offense doesn’t work at all in the NFL, the chances aren’t good from a historical point of view. Spreading the offensive line can open up holes for a no-huddle offense in college, but the speed and athleticism by defensive players in the NFL is too great, and the players will still cover the open gaps. So what about OSU quarterback Braxton Miller? Known for his ability as a dual-threat quarterback, Miller has done well as the Buckeyes’ (3-0) season rolls on. But being under this coaching scheme, success in the NFL still remains murky. Meyer is a sensational coach, there is no question. He’s arguably the best coach in the game right now. His plays and schemes work well for college football, but is his work really going to Miller if he moves on the big stage? read more

The CDC advises consumers anywhere in the United States who have store-bought chopped romaine lettuce at home, including salads and salad mixes containing chopped romaine lettuce, should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick. If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine, do not eat it and throw it away. Before purchasing romaine lettuce at a grocery store or eating it at a restaurant, consumers should confirm with the store or restaurant that it is not chopped romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona growing region. If you cannot confirm the source of the romaine lettuce, do not buy it or eat it. Officials said the recalled products have not been tied to any E. coli-related illnesses Fred Meyer in Soldotna has removed all bags of romaine lettuce off the shelves.last_img read more
