This Fact File examines trends in the detection and treatment of acute myocardial infarctions, or heart attacks, in two distinct groups:
STEMI—ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, with the ST segment referring to a specific part of an electrocardiogram tracing. In STEMI, the coronary artery is completely blocked and cardiac muscle dies.
NSTEMI—Non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. In NSTEMI, a coronary artery is partially blocked.
In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.

Startups with digital products are not commonly known to pursue small dreams. Once the basic idea of the product is designed and the industry niche has been identified, leadership is already thinking hard about where and to how many markets the product should be rolled out.
The mission is critical: the product must clearly create added value for the user in the local market while reflecting the needs of their local community. The challenge is making those changes in each market without losing sight of the basic idea of the product.
The success story of German ecommerce startup Yalwa - The Local Internet Company details three best practices on how young startups can realize the dream of a localized, and thus globally-positioned, digital product.
In the midst of an overwhelming amount of disruption taking place in the retail banking industry, a clear path to success has emerged. Banks that want to continue to gain and retain loyal customers must make it easier to bank with them.
According to a survey that included 760 different banks and credit unions, the most important priority for 2017 and beyond is the removal of friction from the customer journey.1
To clarify, today’s customer journey includes both the customer experience at local branch locations as well as their experience while interacting with websites, mobile apps, smart watches, and anything else that is connected to the Internet.
The battleground for customers has shifted to the digital world, and retail banks must adapt quickly as crafty Fintech startups and tech giants like Amazon, Apple, and Google continue to push the limits of what is possible with technology.
If digital channels aren’t approached correctly, they can add complexity to the customer experience in

All of cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure is vulnerable to a wide range of risk and exposure from both physical
and cyber threats and perils. Sophisticated cyber individuals and groups exploit standalone and congregated
vulnerabilities to steal money and information, or disrupt, endanger and damage operations. The combination of wide
opportunity for crime in cyberspace and the ability to execute from geographically-dispersed locations has produced a
transformation of traditional criminal activities.

Every product needs a target audience. Market segmentation identifies subsets of a market based on demographics, needs, priorities, common interests, or other psychographic or behavioral criteria to better understand and communicate with that audience.
Segmentation can be as simple as splitting your potential market into age ranges or as complex as dividing your audience based on subtle behaviors, values, or beliefs.
To be truly useful, segmentation should enable you to target core groups of your potential customers with precision. Practically speaking, segmentation enables you to:
• Boost demand with messaging that resonates more with your market
• Grow your customer base by understanding what drives purchase behavior
• Increase revenue and profitability by discovering which customers will pay a premium for
• your product

The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and
potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Snapshot-based data protection solutions were supposed to solve our backup challenges, weren’t they? Then why are your backups still broken? If your snapshots are manually managed or of the “build-it-yourself” variety, there may be several reasons that they aren’t working very well.

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

In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty. Building a 360° view of the customer can help banks grow customer retention and loyalty, upsell high margin products and provide compelling interactions. However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products.
Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.

Code updates happen for one main reason:
safety improvement. NEC (National Electrical
Code) Article 408.3 helps take electrical safety
for service entrance panels to a new level.
The code, updated in 2017, includes provisions to provide shock
protection via panelboard barriers. The barriers protect from energized
conductors on the line terminals of the main overcurrent protection
device (OCPD) in a panelboard. When the main circuit breaker in
a panel is turned off, line side terminals and conductors remain
energized from upstream via the utility or another panelboard. With
these barriers in place and the main OCPD turned off, installers are
better protected when pulling wires into the panelboard. Today, all
panelboards are shipped with shock-protective barriers. However,
barriers are new to installation procedures, so contractors may not
recognize them and accidentally throw them out—easily and often.
The Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance’s benefits
are compelling for any enterprise with a need to
protect critical Oracle databases. The differences
between this database recovery appliance and other
approaches to data protection are stark. The Recovery
Appliance leverages a combination of existing proven
technologies and new developments that eliminate
data loss and improve recovery. The elimination of
periods between backups when database changes are
not captured is also a major benefit, and the movement
to a process of frequent or constant incremental
backups provided by this appliance changes the game.
