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.

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 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 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.

What is Driving the Differentiated User Experience?

Posted on 16 February 2016 by Phil Duff

phil_differentiated_user_experience.jpgWhen I think about the most widely used phrases bandied about the office in 2015, ‘a meaningful user experience’ has to be one of them. And I’m sure that it will continue to feature throughout 2016. 

As businesses continue to place the UX at the front and center of product and service improvements, it seems highly unlikely that any industry, sector or individual organization has remained unaffected by the quest for satisfying customer engagement.   

Take enterprise resource planning (ERP) for example.

The challenging business landscape and growing demand for a meaningful user experience has encouraged ERP software developers to focus on developing innovative, customer-centric solutions.

So what is powering this pursuit for the ultimate UX?
