Robots play a key role in achieving manufacturing efficiencies and reducing labor intensive operations across diverse industries. Traditional machine vision has its limitations, however—typically, it can only conduct defect detection and classification based on fixed rules and work in fixed environments. To add on, the complexity of robotic system design poses challenges for many manufacturers to identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
The future of robot and machine solutions is a production environment where devices, machines, robots, and sensors are interoperable.

A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.
Studies indicate strong patient and family engagement in clinical care positively contributes to a favorable experience, as well as improved health outcomes and reduced costs. Learn how incorporating technology into patient engagement initiatives can better position providers to overcome the challenges of today’s healthcare environment.

As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational
efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the
importance of a well-architected framework. This
framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is wellintended,
secure, and compliant, but is not exactly
easy to achieve.
Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular--Security
and Cost Optimization--are the most
difficult to get right. This is partially because while
advanced tooling is required to manage cloud
complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying,
and operating these tools is costly and burdensome.
Without optimizing your environment for these two
pillars, you are preventing your organization from
scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that
are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any
benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place.
AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework,
which will walk you through common missteps and
how to get it right.
If your business is like many other
organizations that are in the process of
enabling a Microsoft Azure public cloud
platform, then you might be struggling
with the guardrails needed to secure
and manage cost, while at the same
time enabling flexibility for the teams
consuming cloud services.
While the Azure platform is already
very secure, it also allows a great deal
of flexibility in configuration. In order
to avoid accidentally creating security
holes and out-of-control spend, a
Governance Framework is required. We
created the AHEAD Azure Governance
framework to allow enterprises to
develop and maintain a fully optimized,
and secure environment. The resulting
framework will be tailored to your
organization’s specific business and
compliance needs, as every enterprise
is different. This guide will introduce you
to the components of this necessary
Azure Foundational Governance Design.
Many enterprises have
VMware tools into their
environments and are now
looking to reap the benefits of
the cloud. But this migration
isn’t as easy as flipping a
switch, especially if you’re
looking to continue running
your VMware environment.
The ability to utilize your
existing VMware tools on
an AWS platform can result
in a more cost-effective,
simplified cloud experience,
allowing organizations to
begin their cloud journey by
moving workloads closer to
native cloud services. In this
document, we will review
ideal use cases for VMware
on AWS (VMC).
Most of the public and its public safety professionals live and work in a digital world of mobile devices instant connectivity, and geo-location.
This one powerful fact, is changing the way police and first responders react to incidents and interact with the communities they serve. Types and severity of incidents are also changing, due in part to socio-cultural and environmental factors.
Complicated risk scenarios requiring inter-agency coordination are occurring in both urban areas and once-sleepy suburban towns. To perform in this volatile new reality, public safety is undergoing a digital transformation focusing more on predictive and preventive practices.

In today’s increasingly mobile world, Energy workers require instant communication and access to data intelligence wherever the job
may take them. From the oil rig to the electric grid and everywhere in between, having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time,
no matter the environment or device of choice — is simply non-negotiable. Organizations across various Energy segments — oil & gas,
electric utilities, water utilities, and mining — are currently juggling a mix of communication devices and are hindered by gaps in coverage,
poor battery life and fragile equipment that cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Yet, citizens rely on their homes being heated in the winter, on clean running water, and on lights that turn on when they flip the switch.
Meeting these expectations requires reliable, clear voice and data communications for Energy workers day-in and day-out. So oil & gas
workers can communicate safely in hazardous environments. So precious resources are
