  • Achieving the Productivity Gains of BYOD without compromising security Recorded: Dec 10 2012 53 mins
    What it is about

    •Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is the Device Centric part of the Consumerisation of IT (COIT). BYOD unblocks many opportunities for significant Productivity gains for both large companies and small companies. The low cost of developing an App for a Smartphone or a Tablet can make the payback time very attractive. Allowing it to run on the employee’s preferred personal platform guarantees a higher take-up and usage of the app and allows a reduction in the replacement costs of PCs .

    •Attempting to achieve these gains without a methodical approach to evaluating the risks to the business might cause the company to fail to meet its compliance requirement, whether you are a Solicitor, a Financial Services company, or a Manufacturer supplying to a Defence Ministry or Government supply chain

    •60% of UK businesses are believed to be implementing BYOD either formally or informally but less than 40% are taking adequate security precautions. New Generation Viruses can bypass traditional Firewalls and Virus Protection and are targeted to steal Trade Secrets and High Value Financial Information from industry generally. The employee’s own Tablet or Smartphone with all their games and social networking might be the carrier that infects the network.

    •Companies need to protect themselves against the bad apple Insiders who will use the technology change to commit fraud or to steal the company’s trade secrets, source code, commercial information, without restricting their employee’s ability to carry out their day to day job.

    The Benefits of Watching

    •Find sources for more information about the implementation of BYOD.
    •Discover a framework for evaluating the decision to introduce, restrict or forbid the technique
    •Discover a framework for a sensible decision on how much to spend on securing the network in order to use it
    •Discover some of the existing resources to support introduction of the technique
  • An introduction to Cloud Standards Recorded: Jun 19 2012 63 mins
    Cloud Computing is a relatively new and innovative area of business activity in the IT industry. The delivery of network based services is not a new idea, but the recent advances in network capabilities, the commoditisation of computing equipment and rapid advance of software as a service has taken this to a new level of business utilisation affecting all sectors and all types of business. What are the building blocks for these services? How are they regulated and controlled? How will the market continue to develop? A key element in the answers to these question are standards.
  • Maximising the Multi-core Advantage 6 Recorded: Jun 13 2012 57 mins
    John Easton is from IBM, a company which requires no introduction. However, you may not be aware of the extent of IBM investment in applied research in areas such as HPC and multicore. John Easton will guide you along this path.
  • Multicore and Scalability: What Really Matters for High Performance at Low Power Recorded: May 9 2012 57 mins
    The term “multicore” is increasingly misunderstood and over-simplified, as many still think this simply refers to having more than one conventional CPU. In this seminar, we’ll explain how Imagination uses the concept of multiple datapaths and execution units utilising range of different hardware and software architectures to implement high performance, highly scalable IP (Intellectual Property) cores covering graphics (GPU), video (VPU), communications (RPU) as well as CPU functionality. Tony will also explain how Imagination uses this to deliver much more than just performance scaling, including power management, product portfolio, and application software flexibility.
  • Maximising the Multi-Core Advantage -€“ Easier Parallel Programming With GPUs Recorded: Mar 14 2012 55 mins
    : In the past five years, NVIDIA has driven the use of graphics processing units (GPUs) for general-purpose computing tasks from nowhere to a mainstream technology. Today, three of five most powerful supercomputers in the world are powered by GPUs and we see many examples where new science and technology is enabled by faster, better, more accurate simulation applications running on GPU accelerated computers.

    How can a working computational engineer or scientist take advantage of this new computing paradigm? The simplest way is to use an application that has been ported to GPUs; more and more commercial applications in the fields of structural mechanics, fluid dynamics, computational chemistry, bioinformatics, etc. are being ported to GPUs. For those using high-productivity scripting languages like MATLAB and Mathematica, the latest releases of these packages are accelerated by GPUs.
    Libraries offer a route to exploit the benefits of a GPU with minimal effort. NVIDIA and our partners provide a broad spectrum of libraries for dense and sparse linear algebra, Fourier transforms, random number generation, image processing, video encoding and decoding etc. Simply replacing calls to libraries running on a CPU with calls to libraries written for the GPU will give an immediate boost in performance.
  • Multicore Design Tools: An Overview of Parallell Studio XE Recorded: Feb 8 2012 60 mins
    From multicore to many-core: How to write portable, scalable, parallel applications that take advantage of the mushrooming number of cores.
    In the session we will look at some of the programming tools and parallel programming models that you can use to make your code parallel. We present an overview of Intel Parallel Studio XE, along with a discussion on what methodology to use when adding parallel code to existing programs.
Accelerating Business Innovation in ICT
The new KTN will focus on Knowledge Transfer as a stimulus to economic growth. It will seek to deliver improved UK industrial performance by facilitating the development and take up of information and communications technologies and their adoption as key enablers in other industries.
