Expanding the User Experience Beyond the Garden of Apple

Posted on 3 May 2016 by Alistair Brough

alistair_beyond_the_garden_of_apple.jpgYou can’t seem to have a conversation about UX without talking about Apple products – especially the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. The iPhone was obviously a ‘game changer’, but it didn’t appear out of thin air. Its design was at least as much evolutionary as revolutionary. Apple’s aesthetics were pre-figured in the 1960s, by Dieter Rams, a German designer who worked for Braun.

Using Technology for Food Sustainability

Posted on 12 April 2016 by Wouter Combrinck

Wouter_food_wastage.jpgThe Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that the global volume of edible food wastage is as much as 1.6 billion tons.

It’s a mind-boggling statistic if you consider that this equates to roughly one-third of all food produced for human consumption. This means that hunger across the globe could effectively be eradicated simply by recovering only half of what is lost or wasted.

The Human Side of Machine Learning

Posted on 24 March 2016 by Kevin Dherman

kevin_human_side_of_machine_learning.jpgThe fight between man and machine has bounced off movie screens, leapt out of the pages of fiction novels and set up battle stations in the real world.

South Korean Go champion, Lee Se-dol, recently snatched victory from AlphaGo, the artificial intelligence (AI) program developed by Google’s DeepMind unit, after suffering three consecutive defeats. The match, consisting of five games, has been hailed as an important gauge of the progress that is being made in the AI research space, particularly since Go is still considered to be too intricate a game for most computers to challenge top professionals.

The Bleeding Edge of Technology Part 2

Posted on 3 March 2016 by Alistair Brough

alistair_bleeding_edge_part_2.jpgIn Part 1, I discussed Moore’s law and the benefits of keeping up with technology in the fast paced evolution of computing power.

To keep your company on the bleeding edge, I highly recommend taking advantage of SYSPRO port updates. These are similar to Windows updates – with every new SYSPRO release you can expect port updates more regularly and as the release reaches a level of stability, the port updates drop to an average of one update per month as the product matures with new features and enhancements. These updates can add a great deal of value to your ERP investment. If a portion of the code has been rewritten to increase speed, you’ll notice the difference.
