Windows Server 2019

A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced the next version of Windows Server in the Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC): Windows Server 2019.  Keeping in mind that the LTSC server releases are similar to traditional server versions, this represents the next major release for Windows Server.  This release will include the full Desktop Experience and has 10 years of support.  This is in contrast to the Semi-Annual Channel which only comes in Server Core and gets 18 months of support.  Let's take a look at some of the new features of Windows Server 2019.

Data Science Primer: Reducing Downtime with Machine Learning

Downtime is one of the biggest financial risks in manufacturing. Asset-heavy companies are exposed to a lot of risk, because every time a machine breaks they lose labor costs, suffer from decreased production, and possibly even miss sales targets. But typical maintenance schedules are somewhat arbitrary and tend to be expensive. Companies pay technicians to look at machines in no danger of breaking down even as actual problems get overlooked. Machine learning allows manufacturers to combine sensor data with the power of the cloud to catch problems just before they happen, all while spending less on routine maintenance.

Data Science Primer: Clone Your Best Salesperson—Machine Learning in B2B Sales

When you use AI to help guide customer relationship management, machine learning helps you close more leads and optimize the revenue you’re getting from each one.
 
Whereas some AI projects are focused on reducing expenses—for example, by reducing manufacturing downtime—CRM-oriented AI projects are focused on expanding top-line revenue. CRM is a very strong fit for machine learning, because normally you have already gathered a lot of data on your market and your customer base.
 
If your company has been around for a while, you have data that describe past interactions. Information about the length of a sales relationship, the industry your client is in, the nature of the relationship, and the length of your typical sales cycle can all be leveraged into a predictive model. As a result, you can increase revenue and make more sales.

Data Science Primer: Predictive Analytics—How to Increase Profits Using Data You Already Have

Beyond Business Intelligence
 
Forward-thinking business leaders track KPIs and use tools like Power BI to create snapshots of what’s happening in the business from moment to moment.
 
Business intelligence is crucial because it helps leaders quantify their success and visualize relevant statistics in a meaningful way. But whereas business intelligence focuses on the present, predictive analytics looks toward the future.
 
At Concurrency we take companies beyond business intelligence by employing computational techniques to arrive at forecasts, or other predictions. Our methodologies carry a statistical rigor, which minimizes exposure to human intuition and helps you see correlations between seemingly unrelated parameters.

Modern IT Management Defined: DevOps, ITIL, Cloud, Agile, or All of the Above?

What if I told you that you had to take your management platforms and start over, but this time you needed to plan for the next generation of how you'd work with your teams.  What if I told you that you needed to re-address how you dealt with your operational lifecycle, development, and release management.  This is what my team and I did over the last several months.  We decided that we'd look at what the management landscape will look like years from now and apply those concepts to the tools being released by Microsoft for the cloud-centric world.
