Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
This white paper from Symantec™ Health provides a guide for IT departments as they examine their current image archiving strategy and explore new options. It summarizes challenges, existing approaches, and the benefits of cloudbased archiving approaches.
Employees, devices, and applications are no longer locked away inside the corporate perimeter. They’re on the web and on the go. Providing security for a new breed of anytime, anywhere workers and cloud-based applications requires a novel approach: a zero trust security model.
Assuming that every user, request, and server is untrusted until proven otherwise, a zero trust solution dynamically and continually assesses trust every time a user or device requests access to a resource. But zero trust offers more than a line of defense.
The model’s security benefits deliver considerable business value, too. Read this white paper to learn more about:
-Protecting your customers’ data
-Decreasing the time to breach detection
-Gaining visibility into your enterprise traffic
-Reducing the complexity of your security stack
-Solving the security skills shortage
-Optimizing the end-user experience
-Facilitating the move to the cloud

The quality of a customer care strategy can make
or break a company. Simply resolving a customer
service issue or complaint is no longer enough—
in a compettve, customer-obsessed environment,
there is always room for improvement.
In a recent research report on Customer Efort,
Interactons found that customers simply aren’t
willing to spend a lot of tme getng their issues
resolved. That’s why brands today need to design
a modern customer care strategy that not only
addresses their customers needs, but also removes
efort and frustraton. And do all of this while
reducing the ever increasing cost and complexity
of customer care.
So how do you get started with developing a
successful customer care strategy? We’ve outlined
4 steps that address the major points you need to
consider when building a customer care roadmap.
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.
Find out how NexCOBOT integrates AI-driven vision capabilities into robotics to improve quality and accuracy over traditional machine vision—as well as providing an open and modular solution for users to develop a robot control system that best fits their particular application requirements.
