What’s All This Benchmark Stuff, Anyway?
Vendors love to quote benchmarks in their product literature, press releases, and any place they think someone will use the numbers to make a buying decision

cad comparative  graphics performance of mechanical CAD workstations. What we now find is that, in addition to industry/consortium-originated benchmarks, tests are developed by non-vendor groups. A key example is the ZDNet eTesting Labs a.k.a Ziff-Davis Media Benchmarks (formerly known as Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operation [ZDBOp] and the suite of benchmarks they have built. ZD is Ziff-Davis, publisher of computer-related magazines such as PC Magazine , PC Week , and PC Computing . ZDBOp currently provides and oversees Read More

CAD Visibility and Interoperability Managing and controlling product data is an important aspect of PLM, but it is not enough to lock the information (especially computer-aided design [CAD] data) in a vault. A key value in PLM, however, is the ability to extend this data beyond the desktop to other engineers, other departments, and other stakeholders–primarily customers and suppliers. I’m expecting that Dr. Ken Versprille’s session CAD/Visualization Trends: Dealing with Read More

Credit Card Fraud Detection: Advanced Analytics in Action or Pure Luck?
Have you ever wondered how credit card companies are capable of detecting purchases that a particular card holder did not make? Do these companies make use of

I can understand how a transaction of $1,000.00 (CAD) would trigger an inquiry, but how on earth could a transaction made at a McDonald’s restaurant for an $8.00 (CAD) meal raise eyebrows? Here are my hypotheses on this: 1 .    Credit card companies compile a consumer profile for each and every card holder based on purchases he/she makes using his/her credit card over the years. In my case, if my credit card company compared this transaction Read More

In addition, if the company owns an Oracle or SAP ERP, the chief executive officer (CIO) will often push for integration with that vendor’s PLM offering. But where the company is not an Oracle or SAP shop, a best-of-breed PLM option should win. SAP and Oracle beg to differ when it comes to definitions about what “ERP” is in this debate. They rather offer business suites that Read More
