MWD Advisors today issues new report on SaaS-based BPM solutions provider Signavio.

MWD Advisors: "Signavio is the first cloud-based modeling tool that rivals traditional desktop products"

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UK-based analyst firm MWD Advisors today published a report about Signavio. This "On the Radar" research report assesses the product offering along a standardized format. In the report, Mark McGregor, Principal Analyst with MWD Advisors, says; "The Signavio Process Editor offers an excellent range of capability and is easy to use. Its functionality compares very well with many of the professional desktop modeling products on the market, in some areas such as model comparison it actually offers richer functionality than many."

The report highlights many of Signavio's unique features that are important to the success of process modeling projects within an enterprise. For instance, QuickModel is "likely to greatly add to the productivity of modelers and allow even greater engagement of non-specialists in model creation." Especially the focus on providing the richness of professional modeling with the delivery model of the cloud makes it "an interesting product".

Dr. Gero Decker of Signavio said;  "MWD Advisors is widely recognized for providing independent industry insights that help drive successful business transformation through investment in digital technologies. We appreciate their effort in creating this 'On the Radar: Signavio' report."

Mr. McGregor also talks about Signavio as a company. "Although a relatively new entrant in the market, Signavio is quickly building a sizable customer base, and is evolving both the company and the product at a rapid rate. They certainly appear to be better tuned to the needs of their target market than some vendors and this customer focused orientation coupled with speed of delivery of new functionality will appeal to customers who feel that some traditional vendors are taking too long to respond to their needs."

Independently produced and funded by the analyst firm, the full report is published as part of MWD Advisors' advisory services. You can find it at: http://www.signavio.com/free-mwd-advisors-report/

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
